Creme Cycles are a new Polish-based company who specialise in producing classic-looking Dutch-style and fixed gear bikes. Here's a quick look at some of their models.
The design of the Café Racer commuter bike is apparently “influenced by handbuilt porteur bicycles of the 50s and 60s". The integrated cabling and hub gear maintains a clean look, and the bike has a semi-upright position, giving a balance between comfort and speed.
With a lugged frame and fork, hand polished rims and integrated lighting, the Café Racer is available in both men's and women's versions. Prices start at £524.99 for the singlespeed, rising to £849.99 for the seven-speed men's model with dynamo.
If it’s a Dutch-style classic runaround you’re after then look no further than the Holy Moly bikes. These retro-tastic three-speed cruisers are made from lugged steel, and the women's models come with useful front baskets. Models are available with dynamo lights for night-time cruising. Prices start at £519.99 and rise to £659.99 for the women's dynamo version.
Creme’s minimalist Vinyl bikes can be run as fixed gear machines or with a freewheel and brakes. The entry level Vinyl Uno bikes start at £569.99, while the high-end Vinyl Doppio with CNC-machined and sealed hubs, Tange chromoly frame, forged cranks and custom paintwork will set you back £769.99.
