WorkCycles Classic Dutch "Bakfiets" (size XL)

These are the very last old-fashioned Dutch "bakfietsen" made, and they're still fabricated right here in the Netherlands. Aside from the huge, sealed bearings, stainless hardware and modern finishes they've hardly changed for 100 years. A classic bakfiets is big, heavy, indestructible and far handier than one would expect.

Though they have their roots in another century these big tricycles are still great either for promotion or really heavy work. They're surprisingly safe and easy to handle and (assuming it's flat) quite easy to pedal. You ride at a jogging pace with a 1:1 gear ratio and the big wheels and truck-type leaf springs help your load float over any road surface. These bikes were, after all, designed before the roads were paved.

Please note that these trikes are really big and heavy (350cm long, 125kg+). They are thus only suitable for essentially flat terrain. You can choose from our standard options or we can build custom bakfietsen to suit your needs. Contact us for a complete list of options and prices.
