    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.
    have a nice day,
    Jurjan

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