    My sentiments exactly. All lovely bikes, but not ONE oma/opafiet? I know for a fact that Veloria has one.

    Always a good choice...I have OPs/Campy on 2 bikes (Chorus on one, Athena on the other) and a spare set on Mirage hubs.

    BTW... Here's the Bat Pro wearing it's red Regal:

    That looks great Mark. I have a spare reflex clincher laced to an 8 speed Chorus that I swapped to 10 speed. I need to come up your way and test out your Dutch beauties.

    Hey Jake... Did you use a 9s Mirage axle/hub/guts? I just grabbed a black open pro laced to an 8s hub (mirage probably) that I will probably convert. The Athena hubbed OP wheel (original to my Reus) is a 10s convert now.

    Anytime you want to come to STL for a ride let me know...I'm slow, but I'm sure we can find something nice. Metric/Century in the Spring perhaps???

    Duell rider



    The bike is already quite light, but it will be a bit lighter when I have added the new wheels. I have period correct wheels ready for it: smooth Ofmega cartridge bearing hubs laced to Mavic G40 rims. The current Campagnolo Atlanta 1996 rims are a decade younger than the rest of the bike.

    Hey Mel... Nice Duell (I like the wheels BTW )...needs a red saddle though.

    Is that the frameset that was in the classifieds here a few months back?

    Mark,

    That frame Freek offered (and still offers?) is a SLX frame with internal routing and a couple more differences. It is a bit later than mine. My frame is built with 531P >>



    I bought my bike from someone in Utrecht. The former owner discovered it was not the right bike for shopping and decided he would better of with a moped. Apart from the fresh Pelten tape I got the Duell exactly as shown. It looks very good.

    Very cool...How does the 531P compare to regular 531?

    Enjoy it.

    Another nice find from our man in Amsterdam.

    It is a re-marketing of 531SL (super light), a thinner version of the classic 531 and closer to 753 in weight. I have a touring bike of all things made with 531P, but my sensitivities are not astute enough to detect any difference.

    In post #217 I showed a couple detailpics of the Jan de Reus. Pics I took immediately after collection. Meanwhile I gave the Reus a serious overhaul:
    - new (loose) balls and Motorex grease for the bearings
    - rust preventive oils inside the frame
    - cleaned the lever hoods
    - new red Velox Tressostar cotton tape and Velox plugs for the bars
    and more

    Finally this morning I glued two new tubes on the rims. The Reus is ready. It is my 2nd Reus, the other being an 80s bike. The 1st one already impressed with excellent ride qualities. A quick spin around the block learnt me this 70s Reus is no different: rides beautifully.

    Finished result:


    I only have to put the original pedals with clips and red leather straps back on.

    The cockpit with the red Tressostar tape:


    That 1A stem requires odd size tools. Italian probably.

    The Jan de Reus was handbuilt by Jan de Reus in Zwanenburg near Amsterdam.

    Very nice Mel...very nice.

    BTW...What did you use to clean the white hoods?

    Also, is it the optics of the handlebar shot, or does this one have a really slack HTA???

    Thx for the kind words fellow Reus owner.

    For cleaning the hoods I used (hair) shampoo and a tooth brush. The hoods were very dirty. You see how effective it is

    On the 2nd pic I can say it is the pic angle and not a slack headtube angle. I were a bit surprised too when I saw the pic.

    This weekend I were in the little Jan de Reus shop in Zwanenburg. It is still a performance bike specialist, but they do not craft steel frames overthere anymore.

    My recently finished Jan Janssen rebuild. Bike is made out of Vitus 788 tubing and should be from the mid to late 80's I'm guessing. Bought the bike (golden arrow equipped) a few years ago and converted it to a fixed gear. Planned to put the gears back on with a modern twist after getting a track frame. Finally got around to doing so this winter after getting a donor bike with a Campy Athena gruppo on it.

    The original Vitus fork was cut too short for the Athena headset so I replaced it with a Time carbon fork, which originally had gazelle decals on it. Sourced old Time decals on eBay and gave the fork a rattlecan makeover.

    I had a Jan Janssen aerodynamic bike with graphics in that same style. Came equipped with 600AX. To me the frame showed a lot resemblance with Panasonic's AR-6000, but I have never been able to see the AR-6000 'live' up close.

    I retired from BF roughly a year ago but feel obliged to post this. Frame: NOS Solo SL bought from Elev12k last summer. Thanks, Mel!
    I found a fork in a shop that sells Duells in the Hague. Fulcrum 5s, Shimano's new 5700 group, and ITM parts to round it out.
    Extremely pleased with the ride.

    Very nice Metzinger. You've chosen for a pragmatic setup. Very Dutch attitude and riding is where the Duells are good at, so enjoy your Duell upcoming spring/summer. Weather is getting better already.

    I haven't been to Holland, but from what I've seen from youtube, amsterdamize.com etc. at least 90% of Dutch people ride bikes like this one posted by Nicolas - with chainguard, upright posture, hub gears, rear rack & hub dynamo lights. It seems strange this thread is titled "The Dutch invasion (or show us your DUTCH bikes)" when these are almost all Dutch Racing bikes. Omafiets and Opafiets are the "normal" DUTCH bikes.

    No, I'm not a racer - in case you couldn't tell. I simply don't understand the North American fixation upon these flimsy non-utilitarian bikes.
