I usually don’t share product news, but you know I have a weak spot for all things Dutch.
Here’s an exclusive look at Vancouver BC-based Jorg&Olif’s brand new “Scout” (it’s not set for full public release until August 10th):
The press release says the Scout “lets you navigate the urban landscape in affordable style.”
It will be available in Fall of this year and is available in three colors (Steel Blue, Mushroom, and black).
Here are a few other salient details:
- Available for pre-order starting August 3rd, while supplies last:
- 1- or 3-speed (Shimano internal hub)
- Frame & Sizes: Oma (XS, S, M) and Opa (M, L, XL)
- Prices: 1-speed ($495 USD / $595 CAD) and 3-speed ($595 USD / $695 CAD)
Last I checked, the company still offers shipping to the states.
At a third of the price of traditional Dutch city bikes, the Scout will be in direct competition with the Batavus “Old Dutch” bikes currently available in the U.S., and with Electra’s Amsterdam which I reviewed back in December.
