    Ah yes, i think that is another typical Dutch thing. It is a special (but rather common in NL) saddle for ladies. The idea is that they can mount easier even with a dress and also that it is much more suitable to their anatomy. Many women seem to be much more comfortable on it though the sporty female cyclists never seem to use it, guess it don't look too happening.

    nice. once you get the kwikstep fixed up and documented i think you'll have the most comprehensive english language website for these bikes. can you handle the responsibility?

    i really like these bikes. might have to bring an extra suitcase on my next trip to the netherlands...

    @ Andy. Well sir, i think i can serve my country and bike producer well here! I am ready to assume my duties, ha ha.

    Yeah it is true, i was thinking i should offer my services in documenting their product to Gazelle, get some loot for this thing while i am at it. As for a suitcase,... you should man! I kid you not! I'd help you track down a Kwikstep too. 2 days to 2 Weeks and E 60 or (much) less would def. get you a real nice one.

    Hmm since people seem interested i think i will try to get on with the documenting/improving of the page. I was planning to send the link (of the finished page) to Sheldon as he loves Twenties and had never heard of the KwikSteps... can you imagine that... SHELDON,.. Had,.. NEVER,.. heard of a Great Bike.....

    V1nce,

    I really enjoy checking your mods and reading your sites. It's sometimes quite inspiring even for me, a user of a "modern" frame. Makes me ride my bike for the next 20 years. Keep us posted.

    @ Rafael. Hey thanks a lot for that. Makes me enjoy writing those pieces and doing the mods even more. The mods on the Pink bike are pending, could take some time before my gf finds the money. We are however cleaning it up (which makes a huge difference) i'll try to post pics of that in a while.

    I will add some other pictures and improve the site a little today or tommorow.



    I.... Must... resist! Nah ha ha, two folders is enough for me
