Gazelle's steely style icon is elegantly conceived and pared down. Equipped with only the bare essentials, the new Van Stael (Dutch for 'made of steel') will go about its urban routines with understated style and a minimum of fuss. A beautifully made classic 'mixte' lugged steel frame in a choice of 2 colourways, stunning Brooks leather saddle and matching grips, polished aluminium bars, stem and cranks, stainless steel mudguards, the simplicity of Shimano Nexus hub gears and 2 caliper rim brakes (replacing the back-pedal coaster brake of previous seasons). A big fat 'ping' bell too! Matching front carrier is also available. Should you want a rear rack we can fettle you a custom made bracket to discreetly mount a Tubus Fly Classic in stainless steel.
One for the urban purists...

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.
