A different way of building a strong bicycle frame. This version is suitable for someone who prefers a step-through frame. It’s a classic european design in a robust city bike package. A WorkCycles city bike, built on the classic Dutch cross-frame; hand-built extra-tough for years of reliable, daily service. Lots of stainless steel parts, special anticorrosion primer and powder-coat, super strong wheels and everything needed for low maintenance, year-round use. Like all WorkCycles bikes it's made to be stored outdoors, year-round. The frame-fixed front carrier doesn't turn with the handlebars meaning that this classic bike steers nicely even when heavily loaded.
The cross frame is extremely stiff and has a comfortable upright position, it’s a smooth ride with a distinguished uniqueness. The bike comes with a vintage style chain case, a vinyl covered spring saddle and square bend transport handlebars. The bike is ideal for around town riding, errands, grocery shopping, a leisurely cruise, essentially a good solid bike for relaxed city rides.
Like all WorkCycles bicycles the Opafiets can be built to suit your needs and tastes: you can choose amongst a broad range of options for gearing, brakes, front and rear carriers, saddles, tires and more. The Kruisframe comes powder coated in matte black or gloss black with a vintage touch, a gold pinstripe line on the chain case & fenders. The Oma and Kruisframe bikes have longer headtubes than our other classic bikes if you are looking for a really upright riding position.
