Available in a stunning selection of colours, the Classic is your traditional swanning-around-Amsterdam bike. Thus they are all equipped with the traditional back pedal brake, a lever-operated front hub brake, large diameter vintage-size wheels (28 x 1/2" or 635mm) and the choice of 3 or 7 speeds. It's one for those who simply must have the classic retro look or one with a strong colour statement. But... if it's just the price that draws you, then look at other models with a more contemporary specification, as the combination of very swept back handlebars and a back pedal brake make for a very unusual riding experience that's not for the faint hearted!.
Having said that, it's generously equipped, like all Gazelles and available in a range of gorgeous colours to die for.
Classic 3 speed £499.99
Classic 7 speed £549.99
Traditional women's loop
Panther black, desert titanium (matt), pale green (matt), bossa nova (matt) and jeans (matt)
The Gazelle range of Lifestyle and Urban Bikes encompasses any bike that meets the typical Dutch requirement of providing effective transport, while at the same time, looking and feeling great.
All of the bikes in this broad category feature simple, low maintenance gears and brakes, with built-in lighting, security and load-carrying.
City bikes are the most practical and functional of these, providing strong, dependable transport solutions in a no-nonsense way. Lifestyle bikes achieve a similar feat while making a pretty strong style statement. Some use avant-garde mechanical design, some use of strong colour and graphics and some recall and develop classic retro styling.
Most day-to-day needs, for family, work or leisure, are met easily by one of the Gazelle bikes in this range.
