Dutchie 'Chic' Three-Speed

A classic Dutch bicycle. A must-have for ladies. Also very popular with gentlemen.

3 Gears - Making Life Easier on the Majority of Hills
  • Three Gears (Shimano Nexus) - Making life easier on the majority of hills
  • All black (for the mysterious touch) with touch of white at the rear (for cars to spot you). A true design signature that has remained unchanged for generations.
  • Stylish yet practical, the 'Chic' is perfect for ‘pootling’ about the countryside or those hidden city shortcuts.
  • Take in the scenery with an upright posture, as you begin to enjoy the commute or the ‘nip to the shops’ content in the knowledge that you look rather fine doing it!
  • Borderline between the two sizes? Then choose Size 1.

True-blue! We get our bikes straight from the factory in Holland, and our team counts a couple of firm but fair bike-loving Dutch members. Even if we wanted to cheat; they wouldn’t let us. They’ve threatened to smear the office with melted Gouda cheese if we do.

Call us, we are happy to help. Usually, on the odd occasion when something does arise it can be solved quickly and simply. We know these bikes very well and have an excellent relationship with the manufacturer — some of our English colleagues even learnt Dutch!

In theory, yes. But we do advise you to go the Dutch way and get an extra chain lock so you can cling it to something.

Even better! You will immediately notice how much more comfy these bikes are. You sit straight up, having a great view of the world around you. You’re not leaning on your wrists, but gently hanging back.

Definitely. The single speed Dutchies have single ‘long’ gear which is perfect for relatively flat inner cities or gentler country inclines, whilst the three gear Dutchies will help you pedal both up and downhill quite comfortably.

Yes, you will be able to fit the majority of Child Seats to a Dutchie.

No, you can still freewheel just as you would any other style bike. You do not have to continuously pedal. If you find yourself at the top of a hill you can happily freewheel all the way down to the bottom.

No. British law requires new bicycles to be fitted with two independent braking systems, and that’s it. There is so much folk lore out there and conflicting opinions that we asked the UK’s national cyclists’ organisation the same question. This is what they said:

“The dealers who tell you that are wrong, plain wrong. Dealers have several ways to throw customers off the scent of things they don't normally keep in stock (or even know how to get hold of) so that you’ll look more favourably upon the wares they do have already, and “it’s illegal” is the finest and best of those ruses — and the naughtiest! Dynamo lighting and coaster brakes are the two things about which they most often dish out this and other varieties of misinformation.”

We are a UK registered company located in the UK. We have a stock of parts and accessories on hand in the UK at all times.

We aim to dispatch with 24 hours or receiving an order, this gives us enough time to thoroughly check the bicycles before dispatch. All bicycles are delivered fully boxed and protected by a large professional UK courier. They promise to have your Dutchie delivered in exactly 2 working days.

Yes. All Dutchie Bikes arrive 95% assembled. This is the only way a bicycle can be shipped in the UK, in a way that provides it with maximum protection. Bikes are fully assembled, and the main thing we need to do for packing and shipping is remove the pedals and front wheel, thats it. Assembly is not difficult (Dutchie's come with very clear instructions), and takes anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes depending on how ‘handy’ you are. Customers who feel that they may not be particularly handy, or simply want the assurance that comes from a professional bicycle specialist, can choose to have their bicycle delivered directly to their local bicycle shop. We will do this at no additional cost (just remember to fill in the address of your local bicycle shop as the delivery address at checkout, and make sure they are aware of its arrival!). A local bicycle shop can usually do this for between £20 and £30. We always recommend this option.

  • I would like to give a review on my Dutchie bike, I received my Dutchie in June for my 50th Birthday!!! An I love it...!! My 15 year old daughter users it too!!! I have loads of compliments from friends and neighbours, it causes lots of interest at my local Booths here in Longton...!!!! It’s so good to ride looks fabulous and so helps towards my fitness plan, less car usage too
  • Arrived tuesday exactly as promised, had to set up the gears which were slightly out of adjustment and centre the front brake, otherwise went together without any issues, I have in the past worked as a cycle mechanic and owned many bikes, dont just compare spec sheets, these are exceptionally well made for the money
  • Very quick to respond and deal with any problems I had. Always willing to help!
  • My bike was delivered within two days of purchase! Really pleased with it! It all went smoothly.
  • SIMPLY THE BEST.............excellent customer service.....next day delivery. Where ever I go people just stare n smile..........compliments all the time. LOVE MY DUTCHIE 3 SPEED . Someone even said they saw of picture of me on my beautiful bike on Pick TV :-)
  • What can I say that your other customers have not, the 'chic' is a stunning bike and so comfortable, can't believe it took me so long to get one! When I first stepped through the frame I had a panic as the seat seams so close to the handlebars but once seated its the most natural and comfortable position , and at 6ft tall its the first bike I've owned that fits me (Chic 3 Speed Size 2) ! Love it !! would thoroughly recommend one , in fact I already have.
  • Hello, people from Dutchie Bikes. Just to let you know that my bike got here perfectly. My boyfriend assembled it and I already went for a ride. Thank you very much. It is more than I expected. I think I´m in love. ;) Thank you, thank you, thank you! The bike is perfect! All the best regards
  • Super fast delivery. Couple of little niggles but not Dutchies fault and they dealt with them excellently and professionally. They were so helpful and I couldn't have asked for more. The bike is lovely and really comfortable. Very, very pleased with my purchase and would definitely recommend to everyone. The bike (Chic 3 Speed) didn't need as much putting together as I thought it might and what had to be done was really easy. Go ahead and get one - you won't regret it. First class service and highest marks to Dutchie. Thank you.
  • An absolute delight to ride....
  • I recieved today our new bike for my wife and to say we are pleased is an understatement.On getting into the box it took all of 20 mins to put it together following your instructions and couldnt have been simpler but what a bike the build quality is superb and all fully functional and we just wanted again to thank you and your company on a fantastic service and product...well done.
  • Excellent. Really fast delivery.
  • Very positive experience! Had my bike the next day after purchase. Everything was so easy and stress free. And by the way loving the bike! x
  • It was great except DHL wouldn't deliver on Saturday nor let me change address so I ended up getting a cab to collect the bike from their depot. Dutchie were great though and when I emailed them to tell them my bell was broken on receipt of bike they shipped a new one for free immediately :-)
  • Fantastic, they rang to let me now the delivery status of my bike, allowing me to plan a time to ensure I was in when it was delivered. They were very friendly and helpful, I would not hesitate in recommending this company.
