Our third container of Batavus bikes arrives!
Posted on 07 August 2007
Editors note: for a little bike store that had previously sold nothing but used bikes to sell an entire container of Dutch bikes was exhilarating. Many thanks to our customers, many of whom saw exactly what they needed: a bike that could be stored outside perpetually, was comfortable, and would last forever. They may be heavy, but every customer who brings their bike in for service today knows they are holding onto a lifetime companion. It's a beautiful thing.

Man, oh man, we never expected to sell through two shipping containers of Batavus bikes in only three months, but there you go. Turns out, our hunch was correct. We figured that if could offer you a weather resistant, maintenance resistant, theft resistant, and clothing friendly bike that is supremely comfortable and handsome, you just might find it irresistable enough to buy. And you have, in spades! This week we unloaded over 200 Batavus bikes into our warehouse - and lots of the popular Old Dutch Omafiets - which gave us quite a workout and gave you a whole range of size and colour options - since we were running pretty low in the last couple of weeks. And once again, we built a couple of them up and sold you another ten this week alone. At this rate, our plans to turn Toronto into Amsterdam is going to happen sooner than we thought! Success! See them on our main website, or buy them online!
