We currently don’t offer an online click and buy system.
A bit old fashioned yes, but we’re not selling mass produced boxed bikes that we simply courier off to you and that’s the end of our relationship.

Visiting our Shop
The Dutch Bike shop is located in the lovely seaside town of Littlehampton, West Sussex. If you’re visiting the shop, we always recommend you telephone in advance to check we’re open when you’re planning to visit and to check what models we currently have in our store.
If you’re buying a bike from us, you’re welcome to come, view the bikes, order one in store and either take it away with you on the day, or if the bike is not in stock, to return when we have it in stock.
Choosing the right frame size
Golden Rule when deciding on what frame size you should order – Frame Size is determined by your Leg measurements, not your height measurements. You can be relatively tall with short legs and a long body, and you can be comparatively short, with long legs. Ultimately, it’s your leg measurements that are important.
For most of our Dutch bikes, you will need a minimum inside leg measurement of of 27″. If your inside leg measurement is less than 27″, we regret that Batavus and Sparta don’t build bikes in smaller sizes. The Dutch are the tallest nation in Europe, and this is reflected in the frame size of the bikes they build.
Step-through frame Dutch bikes are usually available in sizes 48cm, 53cm, 56/7cm and larger.
The Batavus Old Dutch (traditional Dutch Bike) is only built in two sizes – 50cm or 56cm. Ideally you will need a minimum inside trouser/inseam leg measurement of 29″ and above to ride the 50cm (smallest size built) Old Dutch bike.
A minimum leg measurement of 32″ is needed to to ride the 56cm framed Old Dutch bike.

The Batavus Quip – Crossbar/gents Quip and Unisex Quips are built in sizes 50cm, 56 and 62cm.
