Do you find riding your current bike uncomfortable?

Or, perhaps your looking for a bike to carry cargo or children?

The problem with many bikes sold in the UK, is they’re designed and built with sport in mind. Fine, if you’re looking for a lightweight road bike or a durable mountain bike to explore off road.

But what if you just want to enjoy a bike for everyday riding?

What if you want to carry your shopping or your children and you don’t want to ride in a leaning forward position?

The ethos behind all Dutch bikes is they’re comfortable, easy to ride and offer practical cycling solutions.

But the Batavus Quip – offers you really quirky, fun take on a Dutch bike with some great additional features for carrying whatever it is you want to carry.

Features like a steering lock, which prevent the handlebars rounding back on themselves when your bike is parked with cargo or a basket on the front rack.

Steering Lock to prevent the front wheel from rounding back and causing damage/injury when the bike is parked.

Comfort – comes with the comfry upright riding position, gel sprung saddle and solid, stable ride.
