Yesterday, this really cool city bike was parked near the office.
Apparently this is a prize that is available from a national charity lottery in the Netherlands.
If you use the search terms “postcodeloterij bike”, you’ll see that these bikes are not uncommon over there. In fact, there are a fair number for sale for not very much money, but I’d have no idea how to get them over to this side of the pond.
There are a lot of nice details on the bike, such as fully integrated fenders, lights, lock and chaincase. Also, the extreme seat post angle puts the axis more or less in line with the bottom bracket, which is a common feature of one size fits all bikes.
I’m not sure the kid carrying function is standard; note the homemade wheel skirts, and the Yuba Mundo seat pad.
A very practical bike for the city. I wonder how it ended up in Toronto.
