The CityZen is both an embrace of and a departure from the classic Dutch bike.
New for 2018 include a Bosch Performance Speed motor which will assist you up to 28 mph, and a Bosch PowerTube battery that hides neatly inside the downtube.
In many ways, the CityZen looks like a street bike you would find in any big US city - narrow tires, a dropped top tube for easy dismount, flat bars, and disc brakes. All of which speak to a bike that is oriented towards performance and efficiency.
However, when you look a little closer, the Dutch origins shine through. The CityZen features a protective chain guard (unique among our Bosch middle motor equipped bikes), full fenders, integrated lighting and a cafe lock for extra security.
Comfort is also not forgotten on this 21st century Dutch commuter - a 50mm front suspension fork, ergonomic grips and a comfortable saddle smooth the ride and increase control and comfort.
Considering carrying a child by bike? The CityZen has the ride characteristics and power to make kid hauling safe and fun.
The stock rear rack can be modified to work with a Yepp child seat, and the bike frame should work with just about any child trailer.
Of course, if carrying stuff by bike is more up your alley, the rear rack is ready to carry all styles of rear panniers.
The Shimano Deore 10-Speed derailleur makes shifting simple. The Bosch motor's integrated shift sensor will keep the ride feeling smooth and natural.
Continental tires, integrated AXA lighting, comfy seat and grips round out this unique package that may just be your ideal commuter if you enjoy a sporty ride feel and crave a fast commute.
