The citybike, a definitive Dutch classic, makes inroads into the North American market for the first time. This sensible and stylish bicycle has been redesigned to tackle our hilly cities all the while maintaining its classic design of a step-through frame, upright handle bars, a covered chain guard, a built-in lighting and locking system, and the pièce de resistance: the traditional Dutch bell. And thus, the citybike is an impressive design-led approach to form and function that is also environmentally responsible. And, oh yeah, it is also a great way to meet chicks. Available through Vancouver’s new lifestyle company, jorg & olif, whose showroom opens in Summer 2005.
