Do you remember your first bike? Well, we do.
Republic Dutch originated in Utrecht, cycling capital of the world. Obviously, we all got our first bike when we were young. It was an amazing moment. We looked forward to our bike for weeks. When the wait was over, we looked at our bike for hours. Try to document every single detail of the bike. And then, the first ride. We never felt so free before. All our friends came out to admire the bike. It was a great moment in a carefree time.
We are here to let you relive that moment. To make you smile for weeks and leave you searching for excuses to cycle more. How do we aim to do that? It’s easy. We create your dream bike.
We are a bespoke bicycle boutique. All our bicycles are designed and handcrafted right here in The Netherlands. We build the bike you always wanted with high-quality components. With attention to every detail, customized and optimized for you and you only. Every frame is possible to adjust to electric and possible to personally design it yourself to make it 100% unique.
If you can dream it, we can design it. Together.
Republic Dutch® for better change
I know I cannot change the world all by myself. But I’ll be damn not giving it a good go before I give up. So this is part of my mission changing things for better for all of us. It’s not what Holland has done for me but what I can do to help out the community. No matter how small or insignificant. We all are connected so lets make the world a better place for all of us Cyclists 🙂 or not.
Travel and test
inspire and discover
Thanks to my Dear Sponsors and every other person who believe in my mission, I can travel once a year to a remote country to test my bikes and products as well as to teach and help in a local project. Only this way we can share our wisdom and make a difference. Teaching in 9 schools and universities in Cambodia was as much inspiring for me as i hope for the students. Rarely i’m surrounded by such a brilliant minds.
Re-public Tool station
Having a safe bicycle is our fundamental right. I humbly contribute this project to every cyclist out there, keeping in mind that our society function better if and when we all work together and improve the quality of life for each other and for us. This is how i see my RepublicDucth® bicycles. Quality or nothing. Im too old to waist my time on mass produces cheap bicycles
Many thanks ro my dear sponsors Schwalbe and Shimano
