A quick introduction was posted over at CommuteByBike.com to introduce the Batavus BUB I had teased about a couple weeks ago. The BUB is a watered down version of most Batavus bikes. It’s for the person wanting a true city bike but not all the bells and whistles like full chain guard and generator lights.
We are 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.
