Gorgeous city bicycle. Handmade in Belgium. Classic Dutch look and superb quality. Exclusively at Rothar.
The Saar is a bike that puts the traditional Dutch bike on a diet, reducing weight and adding a sporty positioning to increase distance and speed over sprawl and hills. And yet the Saar stays true to the lived experience of living below sea-level: everything is designed to weather storms, floods and winter outdoor storage, from the internal gears (and rear drum brake) to the chip and rust resistant frame.
By choosing the components carefully, with an eye to durability but also lighter weight, the end result is a bike that is just a touch heavier, but with much better finishes, quality handmade construction, and all at a very competitive price.
