Gorgeous city bicycle. Handmade in Belgium. Classic Dutch look and superb quality. Exclusively at Rothar.
This city bike is glorious: upright, the chain is totally covered, you have all the gears you’d ever need (3-speeds for flatter ground, 7 or 8-speeds for hills), and tough frames and sealed mechanisms to battle all kinds of weather.
The Basil is a bike that puts the traditional Dutch bike on a diet, reducing weight and adding a slight sporty feel to increase distance and speed over sprawl and hills. And yet, it keeps the essentials - it is designed to weather storms, floods and winter, from the internal gears and front / rear drum brakes to the chip and rust resistant frame.
