Achielle Craighton Pure Crossbar
Gorgeous city bicycle. Handmade in Belgium. Classic Dutch look and superb quality. Exclusively at Rothar.
The Achielle Craighton Opa Pure Step-Through is the archetype for all city bikes, Dutch bikes included - It is a bike still done the old way. The quality is uncompromising: hand-drawn tubes, hand-brazed frames, rust-resistant undercoats, powder-coat finishes, hand-assembled and equipped with top drawer components. In the march towards disposability, the Craighton is still made to last a lifetime (it will likely last longer!). The Opa classic Dutch position sits you high above traffic with comfort, safety and confidence. Yes, this is a bike that is meant to be your car.
Like all Dutch bikes, the Craighton is made for real life, whether that's an important meeting, a romantic date, or doing your shopping at Aldi. With the completely covered chain guard, you could wear ripped jeans or a white maxi-skirt and stay clean. The Dutch bike has always been a design classic, a combination of remarkable durability coupled with an inherent beauty. Cutting through gridlock has never looked this good nor felt so comfortable.
