Key features

The WorkCycles Opafiets

WorkCycles are renowned for their no-nonsense approach to bikes. They don’t mess around with second-rate components, and they only put their badge on products that they are proud of. The Opafiets (or ‘grandfather bike’) is definitely a model of which they can be proud. The frame is symbolic of generations of Dutch tradition, and the build-quality is second to none. The ride itself has a uniquely special feel, which needs to be experienced to be properly understood.

Our take on the WorkCycles Opa

Steely Icon

The WorkCycles Opa is a special bike in our range. The masculine frame and swept-back handlebars are archetypal, and the sturdy feel of the ride can’t help but conjure up nostalgia for pancakes and canals. Like any good-quality Opafiets, it is quintessentially Dutch; it’s well-made, only available in black, and can handle kids and cargo without batting an eyelid. The timeless styling of a proper steel Opafiets also has a lot of appeal as a symbol of utility cycling, and so riding it around British cities can feel like quite an act of rebellion!

WorkCycles Workhorse

It isn’t just about looks and history though. The WorkCycles Opafiets is a seriously competent and reliable workhorse of a bike, with strong steel frame tubes, immensely rugged wheels, and careful attention to details throughout. Quality is the manufacturer’s foremost concern, and so everything is top-notch; from the brakes and gears, to the tyres, lights, and hardware, no expense is spared in making the Opa absolutely as good as she can be. The result is a bike that rides and works fabulously, and even with all of the modern parts still captures the magic of the Dutch cycling heritage.
