Dutch-style bikes are back in style, along with a kickin’ 7-speed transmission, balloon tires and a host of other awesome features, as brought to you by Los Angeles-based start-up brand Peace Bicycles. The Dreamer is the latest and greatest in two-wheel transportation, available in the Dreamer Step-thru and Dreamer Straight-bar models. Visit Kickstarter for all the details and to learn how you can get your very own Dreamer bike while helping Peace Bicycles get off the ground – and get Dreamers on the road, in every sense. In the meantime here’s some information and imagery at a glance:
The Dreamer is the ultimate urban commuter and casual cruiser all in one, fully loaded with pot-hole friendly balloon tires (Schwalbe Fat Frank), an ergonomic upright frame, spring-loaded saddle and upright riser handlebar, Shimano 7-speed transmission and V brakes that make cycling a breeze on any terrain, whether it’s the LA beachfront or the sloping city streets of San Fran.
The 47cm Step-thru is decidedly the daintier of the two, featuring those classic curves that are so characteristic of vintage, Dutch-style bicycles. The Dreamer Step-thru comes in four color palettes: Black/Brown, Seafoam/Creme, Peach/Creme and Creme/Creme.
Meanwhile, the 54cm Dreamer Straight-bar showcases a sportier, edgy aesthetic in two classic bold color options: Black/Brown and Silver/Creme.
The Dreamer comes fully loaded with accessories including a rear rack, two lights, bell and reflective tire strips, fenders, spoke-guard and chain guard – all standard features for safety and convenience, and all weighing in at just 34 lbs.
Adding fashion to function are 3D metal head-badges, three-coat paint job finished with a clear coat, polished welding joints, color-matched saddle and grips.
