The LEKKER approach to design is probably not what you’d expect. Their aim is to create a quality bike that will last you a lifetime – and in order to do this, they’ve taken a ‘composer model’ outlook to building bikes.
In their pursuit of perfection, LEKKER acknowledges that often the very best components are made by those who have dedicated their skills, time and effort to that particular piece of engineering. And for that reason, everything except the frame on a LEKKER bike is sourced from premium bike component manufacturers. It’s true for all LEKKER bike models, whether your preference is a classic Dutch bike or a top-of-the-range eBike.
Some of these manufacturers have been working on their designs for decades – from Enviolo gearing hubs to Bafang motors, every element of a LEKKER bike has been sourced from the very best in the business. After all, why try to reinvent the wheel?
In pursuit of low maintenance
LEKKER know the most appealing bike to any rider – whether a total novice or seasoned cyclist – is one that’s low maintenance. The aim of a LEKKER bike is to give you a simple, comfortable option for nipping round town. It shouldn’t require an engineering degree just to get started.
Because LEKKER bikes are built using components from different manufacturers, it means any LEKKER bike can be serviced at home or taken into a local bike shop. The elements of the bike can be sourced individually which means your bike can be repaired anywhere, at any time, by anyone. This creates a long-lasting model that offers flexibility.
A protective gearing hub means your ride is protected from the elements all year round, and the option to add a belt drive saves you from the risk of snapped or squeaky chains! Quality CST tyres make for a smooth ride, with added kickstand and front locking system so you can park up with confidence.
A bike for life
LEKKER bikes are designed to be with you for life. These are bikes you can pass down to your children. Every LEKKER model is built with an aluminium, rust-free frame – powder coated to keep it looking box fresh. Hydraulic brakes and LED lights to the front and rear come as standard on every single bike so every journey feels safe and secure.
Every single LEKKER bike also has matching accessories such as a rear rack, along with front racks and options to add a basket. It means that no matter where you are, or what stage you’re at – whether it’s commuting, picking up the kids, or just grabbing groceries, your LEKKER bike will be with you every step of the way.
It’s the LEKKER way of embracing that traditional Dutch design outlook; by having a bike that’s able to fit in with a variety of lifestyles and purposes, they’ve created a range of Dutch bikes that are truly multifunctional.
If you’re looking for a bike that you can have the utmost confidence in – a bike that doesn’t need you to be an expert to fix, or be close to a LEKKER outlet to maintain – then a LEKKER bike is the one for you. From Sydney to London to New York, no matter where in the world you take your bike, you’ve got peace of mind that a LEKKER bike is right there with you.
A little bit about LEKKER
Amsterdam-based LEKKER was originally founded in 2009 with a lofty goal in mind – to revolutionise the modern commute. Taking a Dutch classic and adding the latest in cycling technology, the LEKKER range is a masterclass in engineering.
When founder Meindert swapped the streets of Amsterdam for Australia’s Bondi Beach, he quickly realised that there was something missing from this idyllic new lifestyle in the sun: his beautiful Dutch bicycle. And so, LEKKER as we know it was born.
Now sold across Australia, Europe, and the US, LEKKER bikes have been adopted by commuters and casual riders alike, from all walks of life – all coming together to enjoy the wonder of travel on two wheels.
