Critical Cycles Step-Thru Urban Commuter Bicycle - British Racing Green


Our hand-built Green Dutch style city bike features a mid-century headlamp and bell, easy on-and off design, lightweight components, and is unbelievable value.



CriticalCycles City bicycles are hand built for the commuter lifestyle with a lightweight tig-welded steel frame and an advanced component set that is ideal for riding around town, on the beach boardwalk, and for exercise. 

The Step-Thru frame is designed for easy on and off, as well as comfortable riding for all kinds of clothing. The steel tubing and progressive frame geometry are designed for an upright riding position enabling a softer ride than your typical city bike. Shimano 7-Speed Drivetrain is perfect for longer distance riding as well as easier pedaling on hills. For your convenience the shifting mechanism is controlled via a grip-twister that allows you to shift gears without sacrificing control of the handlebars.

Standard on each bike are Kenda Kwest Tires ($50 Value), the perfect hybrid/touring tire designed with smooth rounded tread with large water dispersion grooves. Many upgrades are also included such as front and rear fenders, vintage-style bullet headlamp (batteries not included), a mid-century bell, rear rack, and sealed bottom bracket. Upright handlebars will keep your eyes on the road while being easier on your back.

Step-Thru Seven Speed City Bikes are available in Cream, Black, and British Racing Green.

CriticalCycles is the premier Commuter Bicycle Company with elegant design, artisan-built lightweight and durable frame, and factory direct prices. Included with your bike are all the tools you need build it in 20 minutes or less.



To ensure that every component on your bicycle is working properly, Critical Cycles recommends that all Critical Cycles bikes be assembled by a qualified mechanic. Improper assembly of your bicycle may lead to premature wear or failure of individual components such as headsets, crank assembly, drivetrain, brakes, and wheels. The brakes and derailleurs are not set up and need to be properly adjusted to stop and shift correctly.
