It’s been here for a couple weeks now but we know it won’t be here much longer! The bike in question is a Hercules–an authentic Dutch bike with a classic (and functional!) dymano front light. It’s got a brand new set of wheels and brown Schwalbe tires, ergonomic grips, an almost-matching seat, and radiates a certain charm. When I was rebuilding this machine, I fell under its charm a little bit, but regrettably I both already have a townie-style bike and am far to tall for it to fit me.
If you’re considering a similar bike for casual city riding, such as a Linus or a Public bike, but want something with a little more character, come in and check out the Hercules “Black Star Sparkle” today! It’ll be a good fit for somebody about 5’4″ to 5’8″.
