ELEGANT, FEMININE & INDEPENDENT
The upright riding position makes it very comfortable for everyday use, and the low step-through frame allows for easy on and off. If there ever was a frame designed for trips to the flower market or picking up fresh baked bread, this is it.
Our mid-century alloy bell alerts passers-by with a clear tone. It accents your bike with a flash of elegance and completes a pretty package.
Wherever possible, we’ve chosen to make all the nuts, bolts, and washers on our bikes out of stainless steel. Stainless is much more resistant to rust than your typical chrome plated hardware. This small detail extends the life of your bike and helps to preserve its good looks.
The flat surface of a head set is a place where water often settles and over time rust develops. That why we chose to make our sets out of aluminum so they don’t rust.
This bike is internally geared, which means you have the benefit of multiple gears without a cumbersome derailleur. For city riding, internal gears have many advantages. They are extremely reliable, require very little maintenance, you can shift without pedaling, and they're very easy to use.
Leather Wrapped Grips
Hand-stitched genuine leather grips naturally absorb sweat and soften over time. If you ever had your skin against vinyl on a hot summer’s day, you’ll understand why we can’t compromise on genuine leather.
We apply a second layer of protective clear coat to the paint. It’s more work for us but it makes the paint stronger and more resilient for you. Two coats are better than one.
Reflective Tire Wall
This bike has reflective tire walls, greatly enhancing your visibility at night. You can see quite clearly that without the reflective tire wall, a bike is nearly invisible on a dark street.
This bike has sealed bearings in the front hub. The advantages of sealed bearings over loose bearings are less friction, no maintenance, and more resistant to grit, grime and weather, making for smooth rides and extending the life of the bike.
We use 13 Gauge stainless steel spokes on the rear wheel because they are thicker and stronger than the standard 14 Gauge. Stronger spokes make stronger wheels, which is great when carrying extra weight like groceries or toddlers over bumpy city streets.

Medium: 5'2" - 5'10" / 157.4cm - 177.8cm
*Note: Some riders may be a little outside these height range recommendations but prefer the feel of a larger or smaller size. Stand over height measurement is not as important as how the bike geometry feels while it is being ridden. As long as the rider can reach the ground while sitting on the saddle, even if it's just their toes, this size will be compatible with their height.
I bought this bike for my 15-year-old daughter. She's about 5' 7" and the large frame fits her perfectly. She really likes the styling and feels more comfortable riding it than her previous mountain bike which was stolen. We decided to get something for more casual rides. I put the bike together myself in about 45 minutes with no previous experience. I watched a couple YouTube videos before hand to see if I could do it. But the instructions were easy to follow and the bike came together pretty easily. Great quality bike for the price.
Our original order was damaged so another bike had to be shipped out other than shipping the bike is great. My daughter loves it she's a teen and it allows her to get around the city
I just love my Dutch 3. Perfect city bike for runs to the farmers market, and great for long rides in the neighborhood on the weekends. Comfortable for the long rides, gears are great for up hills. Couldn't be happier...I may need the new Pronto too for my speed racer rides !
