At LEKKER, the motto is ‘love at first ride’ – and with the LEKKER Jordaan collection, you’ll find it impossible to resist falling for these beautiful Dutch-style bicycles. Introducing a modern spin on a Dutch classic, the Jordaan bike is perfectly crafted for the 21st century cyclist.
It’s a classic cruiser bike with something for every rider. Whether you’re a casual daytripper, or a seasoned commuter, the LEKKER Jordaan is a real all-rounder. Staying true to the traditional Dutch Transportation Bicycle, LEKKER have taken this well-loved design and added their own personal and modern touch – in a way only LEKKER knows how.
From Omafiets and Opafiets to the Jordaan
If you know anything about Dutch culture, you’ll be familiar with the classic Omafiets and Opafiets – it means Grandma and Grandpa bike, born from the little Dutch Grandmas seen out riding bikes just like these. It’s a classic bicycle that’s instantly recognisable. The iconic scooped frame – designed so long skirts wouldn’t catch – neat little handlebars, and space for your shopping makes these Dutch bikes suited for everyday use.
It’s a bike that’s designed with urban cyclists in mind. Taking a simplistic design that allows the rider to explore city streets and park roads with ease and comfort, and adding space to carry groceries, picnics, books and more. The Omafiets and Opafiets design has changed very little over the last century – because if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it!
And that’s exactly why the LEKKER Jordaan range sticks to the original designs of these Dutch bikes, adding a few new features to improve safety and longevity (and to bring a little modern touch).
The Jordaan 3-Speed
For the casual rider, the Jordaan 3-Speed is a stylish, functional and comfortable Dutch bike that’s perfect for anyone looking for an easy way to nip round the city streets. Designed with a steer lock (so you can easily park, even when your front basket is full), premium LED lights and double hand brakes, this bike doesn’t compromise on safety, combining beautiful Dutch design with the latest in modern cycling features.
It wouldn’t be a LEKKER bike without a few snazzy additions to the classics – the best Shimano Internal gear hubs are complemented by the equally brilliant Shimano Nexus 3 Speed, allowing riders to experience city streets and country roads with ease.
The frame is lightweight aluminium in classical LEKKER style – and with a comfy saddle, fat tyres and double hand brakes, this is a bike that’s pretty much foolproof to ride. The Jordaan’s classic 3-Speed will get you to where you need to go in style.
A little bit about LEKKER
Amsterdam-based LEKKER was originally founded in 2009 with a lofty goal in mind – to revolutionise the modern commute. Taking a Dutch classic and adding the latest in cycling technology, the LEKKER range is a masterclass in engineering.
When founder Meindert swapped the streets of Amsterdam for Australia’s Bondi Beach, he quickly realised that there was something missing from this idyllic new lifestyle in the sun: his beautiful Dutch bicycle. And so, LEKKER as we know it was born.
Now sold across Australia, Europe, and the US, LEKKER bikes have been adopted by commuters and casual riders alike, from all walks of life – all coming together to enjoy the wonder of travel on two wheels.
