Gazelle granny bikes
Gazelle granny bikes are still part of the Gazelle range today. These bikes bear the names Classic and Tour Populair. The original authentic design is filled with today’s smart technologies and developments. We are familiar with the nostalgic granny bike with a black frame, but Gazelle has expanded the range with cheerful colours and striking patterns. This bike is available in frame sizes 51 and 57, and with 1 or 3-speed gears. Something for everyone.
There is always a granny bike to suit your personal style and look.
What makes a Gazelle granny bike so special?
Gazelle granny bikes comprise all the traditional authentic granny bike features. These bikes are strong, robust and feature a sturdy frame. You will still find the so-called ladies’ step-through in the frame. This curve in the down tube makes it easy to get on the bike! The recognisable varnished fabric over the chain case protects the chain against dirt and dress guard enables you to use the luggage carrier safely. And the rock-hard coating of paint on the granny bike frame can take the odd knock.
So what’s new in this generation of granny bikes? The traditional coaster brake is supplemented by an up-to-date drum brake, which you operate by hand with the lever on the handlebars. The kick stand has been improved and hardly prone to wear at all now. Leather handlebar grips and the retro saddle give you added comfort while cycling.
Gazelle granny bikes combine reliable features with a fresh up-to-date look!
Robust luggage carrier
The luggage carrier on the granny bike is strong and dependable. Its attachment to the bike frame makes it simple to carry a bag with shopping or your sports kit bag! The dress guard under the luggage carrier ensures that your coat or bag doesn’t get caught in the spokes of the wheel.
A number of models are fitted with a kick stand, a traditional icon of the granny bike. This stand has been vastly improved over the past few years. Clever construction means this stand is hardly prone to wear at all now. You will have no problem parking your granny bike wherever you like.
Handlebar and coaster brake
A fuss-free front light. The dynamo is built into the hub and is many times lighter than its predecessor. You will hardly notice the dynamo working on the go. The rear light is battery powered. The benefit of this is that there is no (vulnerable) wiring needed between the hub dynamo and the rear light.
The shape and height of the handlebars (combined with the shape of the frame) provide a natural sitting position. Back straight, chest out; you will be cycling proudly on your up-to-date Gazelle granny bike. The new granny bikes are fitted with both a coaster brake and a drum brake. You operate the latter using lever on the handlebars.
Ladies’ step-through and chain case
The ladies’ step-through in the frame is a striking shape on the granny bike. The straight down tube is matched with a markedly curved top tube. A strut provides a link between the down tube and top tube, ensuring a strong and dependable frame. The ladies’ step-through in the frame makes your granny bike very easy to hop on and off.
The chain case is also a traditional component: finished in varnished fabric. The varnished fabric protects the chain on your granny bike from dirt and water. It also ensures that you don’t get any dirty marks (from the chain) on your clothes.
