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. Any decent cycle shop will stock parts, and on the odd occasion when they dont we keep a stock of all parts on hand which are just one or two days shipment away

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 comfortable 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.

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 professional courier company. They promise to have your Dutchie delivered within 2-3 working days.

Yes. All Dutchie Bikes arrive 95% assembled. This is the only way a bicycle can be shipped in a way that provides it with maximum protection. Bikes are fully assembled, and the only thing we need to do for packing and shipping is remove the pedals and front wheel, that’s 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 a very reasonable price.

  • Hi just to let you know that my Dapper arrived on Friday as promised by you and that I am delighted with it.
  • A great experience all around. From order to delivery, assembly to getting it on the road, the Dutchie website was a great find! and I LOVE the bicycle too.
  • My beloved Pashley was stolen, and after many happy hires of bicycles in Holland I decided on a Dutchie Dapper 8 speed. The build quality seems excellent, the instructions for assembly very clear, and the Dapper is decidedly dashing! The customer service I've received, from initial discussion, and the efficient resolving of some minor delivery issues has been superb, and I don't use that word lightly. I would wholeheartedly recommend Dutchie to anyone.
  • Thank you very much for your excellent product and service.
  • Effortless. I was contacted immediately it was realised that there was a stock issue. But the promised revised delivery was met.. I love the bike, good instructions so fairly straightforward to complete the assembly.
  • Communication is rarely necessary as they're just so efficient.
  • Excellent thank you, bike arrived quicker than I expected and in perfect condition.

  • excellent
  • They were good, contact me when they had a question, and bike arrived fast and just as stated. Would use again
  • The delivery was next day. The bike was more assembled than I thought it would be and exceeded my expectations. It is strong and sturdy and very rid-able. I would suggest that you get a pro to put the other bits together as i found this harder than I thought and it only cost £25. The back light arrived with a crack and the firm sent a new one immediately without questions. Great bike, great service.
  • Absolutely fantastic.I love my bike so much and the service delivery and responses from you have been first rate. I would gladly recommend you to anyone looking to buy a Dutchie
