April 2016 BOM: Linus Dutchi

With all of our talk about racing, fast bikes and high-end gear, sometimes people mistake us for bike snobs. But that’s a grave mistake.

At Higher Gear, we embrace all cyclists, whether you’re a tyke just starting out on a Specialized Hotwalk or an adult or teen investing in your first road or mountain bike, whether you’re giving racing a try or you’re topping the podium each week. After all, #WeAreCyclists  (Heck, we even embrace our non-cycling running friends.)

And, face it: we all know that half the battle is having the right tool for the job – and a racing bike just doesn’t cut it when it comes to around-the-town errands, coffee shop runs and farmers market rides. But we know a bike that is just perfect for these local trips. Meet the Linus Dutchi.

This is your classic Dutch bike. A sweeping curved frame and refined upright posture make it the elegant choice for trips to the market or just riding down the boulevard.

Special touches include a comfy saddle and genuine leather grips that look as good as they feel. Light aluminum wheels with wide, versatile tires make the most of every pedal stroke. The Linus alloy rear rack makes this classic beauty perfect for trips to the farmers market. And no Dutchi is complete without the mid-century alloy bell.

The Dutchi 3 (the model we stock at Higher Gear) has a 3-speed internal drivetrain. (Note: there is also a Dutchi 8 – with eight speeds and a full Chromoly frame – available to order if you have any hills along your route.)
