Dutchie 'Dapper' Single-Speed

The classic Dutch bicycle. A must-have for every gentleman.

The classic Single speed Gents bicycle...
  • Single Gear - Pure Dutch - great for relatively flat areas.
  • 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.
  • A retro style bicycle yet highly practical, the Dutch Opa (Grandfather) bicycle 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 dapper doing it!

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.

  • I received my very pretty bike on time as ordered. She has been named Berta. She was assembled with ease and is a delight to ride. Perfect.
  • The Bicycle is really wonderful, a real ‘lifetime’ investment in a ‘Eco-friendly’ and practical way, thank you again very much.
  • As soon as the order was placed I received a confirmation e mail. I then received an email telling me that the bike would take a week to be dispatched and offered to cancel if this was not convenient (they had promised next day) I was happy with this and it arrived on the day it was supposed to. It needed some assembly and the instructions were emailed. I have been riding the bike two miles to work and back and I have been very happy with it.

  • Very smooth order, and extremely prompt delivery! The only thing preventing me from giving 5 stars is that one of my pedals was damaged, and I was also sent two "right" pedals, so had to wait for replacement (not long though!) other than that, very good, it's a great bike!
