The Gazelle Heavy Duty NL is a robust and practical load carrier for urban living. With a surprisingly light weight belying its appearance, it is very usable. If you are serious about sustainable urban living, reducing car dependence, this is a great tool. With sturdy carriers front and rear, wide handlebars, double leg centre stand and a stabilising steering lock, this bike is ready for serious carrying action. In addition to the usual Dutch accoutrements of lock, hub brakes, hub gears, hub dynamo, chain and mudguards, we love the fat tyres for an extra plush ride.
Also available to order with 3 speed, at £649.99

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.
