A lightweight aluminium frame

Lightweight and maintenance-free, this dutch bike doesn’t need much attention. But it will catch a lot of eyes. Raining? No stress. 100% rustproof, you can cruise your streets whatever the weather.

An 8-Speed Hub

With 8 gears, the Amsterdam is the ideal commuter bike. And with its unique gear change support mechanism, pedalling power is used to make shifting gears feel lighter than a feather.

Carbon Belt Drive Bike

Weather-resistant, flexible, durable and maintenance-free. The perfect (belt) drive really does exist.

Smoothest Ride Around

On any street corner or metropolitan intersection, stay in control with premium hydraulic disc brakes. Come to a complete stop in fractions of a second – smoothly.

WTB Horizon Tyres

Cruise beyond where the pavement ends with WTB’s high volume 650b tyres. Their all-weather herringbone pattern and parallel grooves mean you’ll maintain traction even on those rougher terrains.

Powder Coat Finish

Stay sleek with the LEKKER Amsterdam 8-speed’s powder finish. Twice as thick as liquid paint and heat cured to protect against any scratches. Our Dutch style bikes are designed to look fresh, wherever your ride takes you.

FAQs

What is the difference between the 3 and 8 Speed hub?

The difference between the 3-speed and 8-speed hub focuses on the ratio and your riding needs. The silent clutch 3-speed hub is a very popular hub for commuter bikes on mostly flat terrain, where there is no need for super low gear. The 8-speed nexus hub is a very tough and reliable hub. It is more suited to hilly terrain or for those who need to carry heavier loads, so if you ride in a variety of landscapes, we strongly recommend this one. It is one of the best hubs available in the market!

We use integrated hubs, meaning no matter the gearing system, a bullet-proof bike is guaranteed! With the internal hub system, you are able to shift while not pedalling, making your ride much easier. It also provides less need for maintenance due to the protection of the internal gear hub.

How does the Gates Belt Drive work?

The Gates Belt Drive is a standard upgrade that greatly reduces the maintenance on your bike as there is no need to oil or grease the belt. It’s created with stretch-free carbon fibre tensile cords and operates in virtual silence. As it is made with carbon blend and not metal, it won’t rust and lasts much longer than chain drives. It’s weather-resistant, flexible and durable. The Gates Belt Drive system requires no lubrication, which means that you don’t need to get your hands dirty and oily to clean it. It is also a practical feature that reduces the weight in your bike, and the noise whilst you are riding – Yes, the belt drive system is silent and lighter than the conventional chain drive, making your rides as smooth as possible!

What are the main advantages of using Hydraulic Disc Brakes?

The Hydraulic Disc Brakes operate with the help of fluid, which means that there are no cables involved. The Amsterdam Series comes fitted with the high-end Hydraulic Disk Brakes, making your rides more efficient and smooth. With the Hydraulic Disc Brakes, you don’t need to lever hard to create a more sensitive response, as a simple push is more than enough to feel its stopping power both in dry and wet conditions. They don’t require as much maintenance as they don’t have complicated wiring in their inner system, making them lightweight and increasing the performance in your rides.

What makes the Amsterdam a lightweight and durable bike?

We designed the Amsterdam Series with durability as a focus. It’s not only light but also rust-free. We make use of a 100% aluminium frame and fork, making its design minimalistic yet sturdy. All other components are high-end, optimised for daily commuting. There are no shortcuts – it’s about power and efficiency. As its name implies, this series is designed in Amsterdam, but with the coastal areas of Australia in mind. It’s reliable, easy to ride and a strong commuter. The standard-fitted Gates Belt Drive gives you another level of maintenance freeness, increases durability and makes your ride smoother, lighter and quieter.

What upgrades are essential for daily use?

Most of our customers choose the Adjustable Handlebar Stem as an essential upgrade for daily use.

The Adjustable Handlebar Stem brings your handlebars forward and back, as well as up and down, providing a better and more comfortable seating position. For example, if it’s more comfortable for you to sit in an upright position, this is a perfect upgrade as you’d be able to modify the adjustable stem to your convenience.

Does the Amsterdam Series fit a child seat?

You can install a child seat onto the Amsterdam Series. You will need a rear carrier rack to mount the seat.

Can I convert my Amsterdam to an eBike at a later stage?

We do not advise converting the Amsterdam conventional Series into an eBike. Our bikes are made as conventional bicycles, adjusted to the loads and capacity with the usage of the commuter as a regular bike. Our eBikes have been specifically designed to perform under different loads and circumstances. For the longevity of the bike, we strongly advise against eBike upgrades.
