One significant difference is that the Amsterdam are somewhat crank-forward, but Breezers are not. Breezers come in 3, 7, or 8 gear models, while the Amsterdam has a 3 speed hub only. Breezers also do not have coaster brakes in the rear as the Amsterdam does. I own a Breezer and I've ridden an Amsterdam. The Amsterdam was fun, but felt like quite a different ride to me.
"Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."
