sorry to reply so late,
our bikes are from 'snel', they are geared towards touring.
the are located on the 'amsterdamsestraaatweg 414 a-b-c'
postcode: 3551 CX Utrecht phone: 030 - 244 19 71.
they are however (like many bikeshops over here i think) closed on monday.
AND when i was there two weeks ago they were VERY busy: they would only
take bikes bought there for maintenance if you bought it there.
BUT: with problems i think they'd try and fit you in, they're nice people.

Utrecht! Dag from IJsselstein. I would just take the train to Amsterdam if you can't find a shop in Utrecht.
