being MVP: Linus Bike Dutchi Review

Linus Bike Dutchi Review

Disclosure: I received a bike from Linus for review. All opinions are my own.

Kenzie loves to ride her bike :: all.the.time. They have bike day at school where all the children bring their bikes and/or scooters to enjoy. Recently, she has been asking for a bigger bike like her friends so it was awesome watching her face light up when she saw the shiny red Linus Bike Dutchi assembled (at night by Hubs) and ready to ride when she woke up in the morning. 



Inspired by French bicycle design of the 50s and 60s we have created a bicycle that preserves the simple elegance and pure form of that golden era, but has all the benefits of modern comfort and reliability. LINUS is the utilitarian city bike… simple and reliable, but with a personality and style that makes you feel like you’re in an old French movie.


This is a truly beautiful bike that is made with quality materials. The 16 inch version came with training wheels which is great for Kenzie who loves to zoom on by but with a sense of security. *Note the 20 inch does not come with training wheels. I love the vibrant red color contrasted with the brown faux leather seat and handlebars. Kenzie loves to ring the bell as she rides through the neighborhood.  



The brake is simple as it just uses the pedals to stop. It was funny watching Kenzie riding the Linus Bike for the first time as she exclaimed that the bike was wobbly. She rides her Dutchi almost every day and pedals along pretty quick as we ride around the neighborhood and park. I want to get her the oval basket to put on the bike to take along her favorite snacks. 


Features


  • Durable hi tensile steel frame and fork
  • Alloy rims
  • Painted fenders and chainguard
  • Training wheels
  • Classic Bell
Check out Kenzie cruising  along in her chic Dutchi!

  4. We don't have one but my little one is 13 and probably won't fit on any :P Funny that they call it a Dutchi bike but was inspired by the French design.
