Upgraded Classic Batavus Dutch City Bike 59cm Nuvinci (Redlands) $525

QR Code Link to This Post Hi, you are looking at a classic Batavus Grand Tourist Dutch City Commuter Bike in size:59cm seat tube c-c 33" standover (84cm) 57 top tube c-cThis bike has been lovingly restored and upgraded. The original drivetrain was swapped to a brand new Nuvinci 360 continuously variable transmission hub laced to a brand new high end Velo Orange RAID wheel (cost of this upgrade alone is $350 - have receipts). If you are not familiar with this hub google it - it is maintenance free for life, and allows you to continuously adjust your gear ratio. For example, you are going fast and pull up to a light - you can immediately drop to low gear for starting out and slowly increase your velocity/cadence as you accelerate. It feels more like a motorcycle throttle than shifting a bike.The bike sports brand new Planet Bike Cascadia fenders, brand new leather Brooks Champion Flyer sprung seat, brand new matching leather Brooks handgrips, and brand new Axa lights front and back run off a bottle dynamo. There is a built-in Axa lock, and I am throwing in a classic Bellwether handlebar bag.The bike also has Magura Hydraulic rim brakes as orig, equipment, and an ESGE rack with a built in strap. The frame is constructed of high quality and durable Reynolds 501 double-butted steel. The tires are matching Panasonic Urban Max 700x32. Included is a Cateye wireless computer.I have another Batavus Nuvinci hub city bike for sale as well, a newer model for slightly more (search for Batavus Ouverture). I only need one of these and each has its pluses - I just can't decide so I am letting the Craigslist fates decide. Your choice! But if you want a Dutch bike you've come to the right place.Price is FIRM at $525, if you value components you see that you are getting a great deal on this one. Not interested in swapping, removing or selling components separately, thanks. Let's block ads! (Why?)
