Classic womens bike with basket

Classic womens bike with basket DEFAULT

The Kopenhagen Classic is a quality bike that is manufactured in a lightWEIGHT steel frame. The steel pipes are assembled in beautiful and classic way that make the bike stronger and very beautiful to look at.

Bike frames with luggs have been built in Europe for more than 100 years and this craft tradition is one of the cornerstones of Velorbis’ classic bike program. This is how to build a quality cycle.

The Kopenhagen model is our bid for a ‘classic’ men’s / lady’s bike and the model  goes under many different names. It is called an everyday bike, a commuter bike, a city bike, a grandfather / grandmother bicycle (omafiets / opafiets), dutch style bike, a retro bike or a tourist bike. With its timeless design, it still resembles the bikes that were designed and manufactured in the 1900s – it runs significantly better and is much easier than the old bikes.

This Danish-designed and German-produced quality bike is equipped with a wide range of components that can be used for everyday use and rustproof against the sometimes harsh Scandinavian weather.

Particularly with all Velorbis classic bicycles is the upright and comfortable driving position, which is a major advantage for the bike’s driving characteristics. Typically, the Kopenhagen classic bike is for short trips (up to 30-40 km/h) and transportation to-and-from work, to the fun in the woods, to the business meeting or on a cafe-visit with friends!

The size and position of the height of the handle bar relative to the saddle prevent you from leaning over the frame when cycling, as with ordinary city bikes, racing bikes and mountain bikes. You relax completely in the back, shoulders and forearms when riding in an upright position, while at the same time viewing traffic,  relaxing and 100% driving pleasure while cycling. Simply simple – a classic fun, funky, trendy and nostalgic bike at the same time ideal for intensive use – especially urban use.

Kopenhagen Classic comes with 1, 3 or 7 enclosed Shimano Nexus gears .

If you also cycle a lot during the winter or after the sun has set and want integrated light, you can add our Sturmey Archer dynamo hub driven built-in light system in the front wheel. It powers both front and rear lamps and has a parking light, so that the bicycle still lights at full stop.

Maintenance free

Enclosing the gears inside the hub protects you and your bicycle from all types of weather, hence they involve much lower maintenance than the derailleur systems found on most bikes. Another advantage of internal gears is that they are very simple on the outside and come with a chain guard. This is a much cleaner option allowing you to ride in any clothing you choose rather than having to wear specialist cycle gear. Drum brakes in front wheel prevent that brakes must be adjusted regularly. Puncture protection in all tires allows you to roll easily and prevents unpleasant punctures.

Getting good exercise is even more essential these days, and one great way to get outside AND get moving is cycling. But let’s face it – some of us just aren’t into bikes that look, well, too sporty, which accounts for the popularity of bicycles with a flowers-and-baguette-in-your-basket vintage vibe.

Women's bikes with baskets: Get inspired!

When it comes to both style and practicality, you can't beat a women's bike with a basket to carry everything you need. We love the vintage style bikes with baskets inspired by Audrey Hepburn, and Anne Hathaway showed how it's done in modern sophistication when she was spotted on set riding a mountain bike with a basket in the streets of New York City.

A new bike is in order whether it is for fun, to get into shape or to use for a socially-distanced commute. Above, Anne Hathaway cycles on set in NYC

It’s important to remember that not only are bikes great for exercise, but they're also a great independent mode of getting around that can lessen your time on crowded public transport when you're headed to school or work daily – something that's definitely a plus as social distancing measures will likely be in place for some time.

In fact, in honour of 2020 Bike Week last year, insurance company Urban Jungle revealed that there was a big uptick in people cycling since the pandemic began, with insurance enquiries up 60 percent year on year.

Affordable, Vintage-Style Bicycles: What’s Around Today?

There is nothing more satisfying that cruising on a beautifully restored vintage style bicycle. A true throwback beauty is classic, timeless and gets tons of looks.

The only problem? A genuine vintage or antique bicycle costs a fortune these days!

Table could not be displayed.

We’ve already looked at ways to find a vintage bike to repair, and how to spruce up its looks without busting the bank.

If neither of those methods work, you might consider a new bike with old-school looks.

Top Three Vintage Retro Style Bicycles

Old is actually new

If you’re a fan of vintage style bikes like me, but you have a limited budget, you are in luck. This style is crazy popular and brands are paying attention. There are many beautiful rides available in a gorgeous vintage style, except they’re brand spanking new.

Mimicking the lines and features of cycles from days gone by, old style bikes are making a real comeback. It makes sense: people long for a time when life was simple, when carbon fibre and cell phones didn’t exist, and when a bike frame had a classic geometry and minimalist good looks.

Here’s the problem: because the retro style bicycle frame is so popular, everyone and their dog is jumping on the bandwagon, including lousy manufacturers.

The difference between a home run and a strike? It’s all in the details!

This article will be taking a close look at a handful of my favourite vintage-style bicycles for sale today. Primarily, I want to point you to a few rides that are not only good looking, but beautifully functioning too.

So What Defines a Classic Style Bicycle Anyway?

Vintage, classic and retro styles all sort of bleed into one another, especially in the case of the bicycle. There are a lot of different bikes that market themselves in this niche, but they don’t all reflect a truly antique silhouette.

So what constitutes a truly retro-styled bike?

  • Urban / Commuter Use: The original safety bicycle featured a simple diamond frame and was built for general use. That trend actually continued up until fairly recently. There weren’t as many purpose-built types of cycles (such as mountain, road, cyclocross, etc), and unless you were a racer you likely sported a standard ride.For that reason, most vintage styled bikes these days are built and intended for commuting and urban riding; if you’re hoping to ride trails or race, you’re out of luck.
  • Upright Riding Position: Most classic, old style bicycles had an upright and comfortable riding position; they were intended to get you around town. Most classically-inspired bikes will therefore have a similar stance.One exception is the path racer style, which was the antique equivalent of the modern road bike. These have a more aggressive riding position and low swept handlebars. Path racers are also making a comeback.
  • Function and Form: In its early years, the bicycle was more utilitarian than it is today. Not everyone could afford a car, so a bike was a simple, cheap and effective means to get to work or grab groceries.Most vintage style bicycles for sale today will therefore feature a lot of functional accessories: integrated baskets and racks, built-in headlamps, and chain guards to keep your nice work clothes from getting greased.

1) sixthreezero Ride in the Park: A stylish yet cheap vintage-style bicycle for sale:

The sixthreezero Ride in the Park is an extremely affordable vintage style bicycle that also looks pretty great. It’s not a replica vintage ride and thus it features some modern elements, but the price tag is so low it makes it an affordable, worthwhile choice for vintage enthusiasts.

Let’s get into the details. The aptly named Ride in the Park has a traditionally shaped diamond frame that’s intended for an upright riding style. It’s the perfect shape for a path racer conversion.


The frame, fork, and downtube are made out of strong and lightweight aluminum. It’s very durable, though a tad heavier than I expected (though not so heavy as to be annoying).

The frame welds are pretty excellent for the price point. It’s not a lugged frame, but it still pulls off that retro feel, despite the matte paints. It’s a clean-cut frame that will get you some looks.

Shifting & Brakes:

As for shifting and braking, this bike comes with a Shimano Nexus 3-speed internally geared hub, or a 7-speed version with a standard derailleur. The Nexis is a particularly nice hub that shifts quite smoothly, and you can even shift gears on a hill.

Three speeds isn’t a ton, but unless your ride takes you over lots of hills, it’s sufficient for most commutes. If you’re concerned, go for the seven. The shifter for both is a grip-twist style.

It includes caliper brakes on the front and back. When nicely tuned and paired to the machined sidewall rims, this bicycle stops reassuringly.


The bike is nicely decked out with accessories. There is a simple chain guard which really gives the ride a vintage appeal. There are front and rear fenders, and the seat tube is drilled to accept a bottle holder. The other thing I’d change right away is the vinyl saddle. This is a vintage-style bicycle that would look a lot better with a leather Brooks saddle or something similar. That’s just me.

Other details worth noting: The bicycle runs on colorful hybrid tires, and the wheels feature sealed cartridge bearings, so they spin quite well. Oh, and it comes in a Dutch step-through frame style as well.

On the whole, I’d consider the Ride in the Park to be a good vintage-styled bicycle for sale, with the understanding that it needs one or two simple upgrades in order to be a true show-stopper.

2) Raleigh Prim: Among the Best Vintage-Style Bicycles for Daily Use

For anyone who’s looking for a retro inspired bicycle with tons of usability, I’d point you towards the Raleigh Prim. It is a gorgeous yet practical bike with classic lines and modern accoutrements. Raleigh’s a great company, and as a result the build quality is quite good.


The frame is a classic step-through style, with prominent vintage features. This bike is a stylistic nod to the classic, vintage Dutch bicycles of days gone by, and they do a hell of a job, I really like it. The frame lines draw the eye and create a strong visual interest; you’re sure to get tons of comments and looks.

The frame is made out of high tension steel. It’s not quite as light as aluminum, but it is very strong.

Shifting & Brakes:

The Raleigh Prim has a 3-speed Nexus rear hub, which gives you a good gearing range for most types of riding.

Like most 3 speeds, it’s not the best choice if you live somewhere that’s extremely hilly. However, it will work well for most commutes. The Nexus allows you to shift at a standstill, and it’s practically noiseless.

It features fairly rudimentary linear pull brakes on the front, and a coaster brake on the rear. They combine to get the job done.

I should mention that this bike has 700 x 35c tires, which are generously wide and capable of tackling some light trails.


A prominent feature in this inexpensive vintage style bicycle is the chain guard. Chain guards were popular with classic European and Dutch-style bicycles. It’s a gorgeous little addition that makes the bike look expensive.

It’s also practical, preventing dirt and water from reaching the chain and reducing its lifespan.

My favourite thing about this bike? It includes a rear luggage rack. It is removable and optional, but why wouldn’t you keep it? It gives the bicycle even more vintage flair, and it’s eminently practical. Pop a basket on that front rack and you’re really ready to shop.

What would I change? The vinyl saddle is fine but I’d swap it out for a leather one. I’d also definitely get a good basket or wood storage crate for the front.

On the whole, however, this is a very ridable bike right out of the box. Raleigh offers many vintage-style bicycles for sale for a very good price point, and they’re all worth a look.

3) Critical Cycles Beaumont: A Modern Bicycle with Vintage Flair

If you’re hoping to find a few vintage style city bicycles with a wider range of gears, you’re in luck.

While many have internal hubs limiting them to 3 gears (to maintain a clean chainline), there are quite a few good models that combine classic good looks with a modern derailleur system and many gears.

The Critical Cycles Beaumont is a beautifully minimalist ride with loads of potential for you to customize it. Don’t let the simplicity fool you: this is a well equipped bicycle.


It has a strong diamond frame constructed of high tension steel. This frame is available in a bunch of different colour combos.

Additionally, it’s available in both a male and female frame, the only difference being size and the dropped top tube for the ladies’ model.

Despite its throwback looks, it is a fully modern cycle. It has 700c aluminum alloy wheels, which fit a pair of generous 35c tires. You could size up or down a little bit based on your tire preferences.

Shifting & Brakes:

It utilizes front and rear linear pull brakes (V-brakes), which stop the bicycle nicely when they’re properly tuned.

The rear derailleur is a pretty basic and common Shimano Tourney, with seven speeds to choose between. It’s not exactly high end, but it does the trick.

The shifter itself is a Revogrip Shimano twist. The seven gears give you a ton of versatility, especially if you live in a hilly city.


The Beaumont includes front and rear fenders, and a rear luggage rack. The rack is removeable, but I think it augments the vintage appeal. Plus it’s practical.

The saddle is vinyl, but it does a decent job of mimicking a classic leather seat. I would probably upgrade the saddle and the shifter eventually if you have the funds. I’d also suggest repositioning those handlebars down as far as possible in order to give it a more sporty look.

Probably the greatest advantage is price. This bike, and most other Critical Cycles, are cheap. On the whole, the Beaumont is one of the best vintage-style bicycles for sale today.

Old Style Retro Bikes: Warning Signs and Stuff to Avoid

Old Style Bicycle on London Street

While I’m pretty excited that the classic bicycle frame geometry has made its way back into the public consciousness, I’m also a bit concerned by what I’ve been seeing.

Sometimes flash and dazzle is used to snag buyers who don’t really know what to look for. It’s sort of like buying a fancy looking mountain bike from a department store: it looks impressive, but for any real off-road riding, it’s trash.

The same is often true with vintage-inspired affordable road bicycles of all types. The frame and paint job are used to mask shoddy components and poor fit and finish.

Here are a couple of things to be wary of while you’re hunting for the perfect fit.

  • Component Quality: It’s a important thing to be aware of. Are the components brand name, or are they nameless? Are the components made primarily out of plastic or metal? What kind of metal? These are all indicators of the quality of the components. If you aren’t sure, ask a friend in the cycling world to give it a look-over before buying, especially if you’re making the purchase online.
  • Frame Material & Weight: In most cases, your frame will be made of one of two materials: steel or aluminum alloy. Steel is heavier and cheaper, and aluminum alloy is lighter but more expensive. Why does this matter? Weight is a subtle factor in your riding enjoyment. A heavier bike takes more effort to pedal. Don’t believe me? Take a spin on a $3000 carbon road bike and tell me you don’t notice a difference!

With classic womens basket bike

It was at the end of September in the midst of "Indian summer", the weather was very warm, even I would say hot. As befits an attractive girl in the heat, I dressed lightly and openly, which was immediately noticed by a guy of about 25 who was sitting in the hallway and at. First rummaging through his phone, and then, noticing me, he began to examine my body.

I looked at him a couple of times, a cute curly blond with short hair and just as short as me. I even leaned against the front desk and bent so that my butt began to stick out even more.
