Well I had my doubts whether or not it would ever happen, but after some ads popped up recently it was just a matter of time…
And now it’s official, the Batavus “Old Dutch” bikes have landed in America.
authentic, working-class Dutch city bike.
The Batavus “Old Dutch”. MSRP $799
I got an email Tuesday from my contact at Seattle Bike Supply (the U.S. importer) who said,
“The Batavus bikes arrived yesterday and are all received and ready to go!! The Dutch are coming, The Dutch are coming!! Hopefully this will add to the Dutch population of bicycles that have already arrived in P-town.”
He’s excited. So am I. I’ve got one on the way for a review and photo-shoot.
For more details on this and the other three Batavus models that will be available in the U.S., check out this post from my old friend Tim Grahl at Commute By Bike.
