Just a quick note to introduce the latest bike I’m test-riding in my ongoing quest to find my perfect city bike.
Behold the Batavus Socorro:
[NOTE: I have swapped out the stock saddle (it was big and cushy)
and pedals (love those Shimano DX platforms)].
As I think about this bike and consider doing a review article on it, I would love to hear any specific questions/thoughts you might have about it. As far as as I know, no dealers are selling these yet. The U.S. distributor is Seattle Bike Supply and they just started bringing them in this year.
For more specs on the bike, check it out on the Batavus USA website.
So far I have pleasantly surprised and impressed by this bike. Stay tuned for more photos and thoughts.
