WorkCycles Priestess
From: £985.00

Key features

The Flying Priestess is particularly versatile, and so it appears in both our City Bike and Cargo Bike categories. The little-known reason for the bike’s unique cross-frame is that it was originally designed to accommodate a Dutch priest’s cassocks, thus allowing the cleric to cycle around the parish without fear of indignity. However, what began as a simple modesty-preserving alteration was soon found to have a number of unexpected benefits. Aside from its unique aesthetic appeal, the criss-crossed design gives the bike a stiffer, stronger frame, making it an ideal choice for taller riders and heavy use. The geometry of the frame also encourages a very comfortable and upright riding position, and the lowered step-over height makes mounting considerably easier. All of these advantages translate directly from the gents’ to the ladies’ version of this bike, and so the Priestess is a strong choice if you’re looking for a bike that’s tough, elegant, and unique, all in equal measure. Each frame is hand-brazed, and through the extensive use of stainless steel hardware, anti-corrosion primers, powdercoats, and the trademark dose of the Flying Dutchman’s attention to detail, each and every Flying Priestess is made into an authentic and reliable workhorse, built for maximum utility.
