Why bear bicycles

Here are some reasons why we are so confident about the quality of our Dutch bicycles and delivery bicycles:

  • Bear’s Dutch bicycles have a rock solid three layer powder coating, applied to a zinc base layer
  • The tubes and mudguards on our Dutch bicycles also a zinc foundation been beneath the layer of lacquer – even in the hollow spots. This virtually rules out all chance for rust
  • Our bicycles frames have oversized tubes – this makes the bike significantly stronger (but hardly heavier). More important: it gives the most stable ride there is. Finally, our frames also have a smart geometry, making your ride comfortable and effortless
  • Spokes are made of stainless steel, and fit seamlessly into the spoke naves in the rims – reducing spokes breaking by 80%. Our spokes are also extra strong: with a minimal size of 2.35 mm (spoke size 13)
  • All cables (e.g. on handbrakes or gears) are made of stainless steel and are coated in Teflon, to ensure long, carefree, supple use
  • All our components are of the highest quality. Whenever possible, we use stainless steel
  • Bear’s Dutch bicycles have extra sturdy rims
  • Bear’s Dutch bicycles have anti puncture tyres
  • All welded parts of bear’s Dutch bicycles have been given second treatment with copper alloy. This enhances the strength of the connections, and greatly reduces rust
  • Bear’s Dutch bikes are handmade in Holland: Dutch craftsmen take great care for the assembly of each one of our bikes
  • All bike components have been thoroughly tested for wear, breakage and corrosion. We only use the best components, which meet our strict quality criteria.
