Batavus BUB Review : Introduction

CommuteByBike was fortunate enough to be one of the first bike testers for the prototype Batavus BUB. The bike we had in for review was a one speed with a coaster brake. Slowly I’ll be unveiling my own thoughts, along with a friend who is a pretty new cyclist/commuter. Let’s start with an introduction from a shop called Renaissance Bikes that was our contact for the BUB.

Batavus BUB

Some of the details:

  • Available early Spring of 2010.
  • It will cost $550.
  • 3-speed drivetrain with a coaster brake.
  • Classic frame or Step-Through frame (“sizes” are somewhat irrelevant because of adjustability.)
  • The color choices are: Gloss or matte black, battleship grey, raw silver, red (matte), white with white tires.
  • Front racks, rear racks, and battery powered lights are options.

This product was given to me at no charge for reviewing. I was not paid or bribed to give this review and it will have my honest opinion or thoughts through out.
