WORKCYCLES | Pastoorfiets
A frame design that was originally made so the preacher could ride in his long robes. Now ridden and loved by cross frame enthusiasts around the world. The classic Dutch Kruisframe, originally made for the preacher to ride in his long robes. It's smooth ride, comfortable upright position, lowered step-over and uniqueness make this frame as practical as it is beautiful. The strength and stiffness of the Kruisframe also makes it an ideal choice for tall men and heavy use. With our frame-mounted front carrier the Kruisframe also makes a great transport bike, perhaps even better than the more familiar Transport Double Tube. The frame-fixed front carrier doesn't turn with the handlebars meaning that this classic bike steers nicely even when heavily loaded.
An extra-tough bike built for years of heavy service. Extensive use of stainless steel, special anticorrosion primer and powdercoat, reinforced wheels, and WorkCycles attention to detail. The WorkCycles Kruisframe is a timeless vehicle built for real utility... not yet another retro-fashion lookalike. The bike comes with a vintage style chain case, a vinyl covered spring saddle and square bend transport handlebars. The bike is ideal for around town riding, errands, grocery shopping, a leisurely cruise, essentially a good solid bike for relaxed city rides.
Like all WorkCycles bicycles the Kruisframe 'Pastoorsfiets' can be built to suit your needs and tastes: You can choose amongst a broad range of options for gearing, brakes, front and rear carriers, saddles, tires and more. The Kruisframe comes powder coated in matte black or gloss black with a vintage touch, a gold pinstripe line on the chain case & fenders. The Oma and Kruisframe bikes have longer headtubes than our other classic bikes if you are looking for a really upright riding position.
