    I can stare at my bike all day. She’s just beautiful.
    Very well built, premium quality. So easy to pedal. No break pads which makes the ride smoother. This reminds me of a bike I had in Japan when I was little.

    Price is not cheap but this bike will take me long way. It’s one time investment and well worth it.

    I just need to secure it very well when I ride my bike to stores because my bike standout!

  2. Dominik Rastner

    This is the pinnacle of bicycles. I had different bikes over the years, mountain bikes and city bikes, but nothing comes close to the comfort of riding this.
    I just can recommend getting one.

    Upon becoming aware of Dutch bikes and desirous of procuring two of them, my wife and I looked (without success) high and low in the United States for genuine Dutch Oma-fiets. As far we know, they’re simply not to be found in bike shops here in America.

    So, it was with some apprehension we decided to order bikes direct from The Netherlands. After research and reading of reviews, it quickly became apparent the obvious and logical choice to fulfill our international bike order would be Amsterdam Bicycle Company LLC. The glowing reviews Steven Verschuijl receives regarding his excellent customer service and attention to detail are no exaggeration. One quickly loses all apprehensiveness after the very first email exchange with Steven.
    We chose, for the two of us, Azor Amelands — “the modern and luxurious incarnation of a classic Dutch Oma-fiet” — and couldn’t be happier.

    The current production time is 10 to 12 weeks, but once bikes come out of production, the TNT/FedEx shipping is amazingly fast. Time-in-transit Hoogeveen, The Netherlands to Beaufort, North Carolina, USA was just just five days. Our bikes sustained no shipping damage and came mostly assembled. I just had to install the front fender, front tire, seat, handle bars, pedals and connect the electrical wire running from the hub dynamo to the front light.

    In my opinion, if you live in United States and are interested in owning authentic, beautifully-crafted, substantially-built Dutch bikes, Amsterdam Bicycle Company LLC and Steven Verschuijl are the obvious choice to help fulfill your Dutch bike dreams. We love our beautiful Dutch bikes!

    I am very pleased with my new bicycle. It is truly wonderful to ride, and the Enviolo gearing is simply amazing! I can’t imagine getting a better bicycle, and I am so glad that I made this purchase.

    I would also like to emphasize that the customer service was outstanding throughout the entire purchasing process.

  5. Larry Hannon (verified owner)

    I had a wonderful experience with each and every step of buying my Ameland. Steven was so helpful in making sure I purchased the right bike for me with the right options and accessories. I was in communication with him via email and telephone. Once I purchased the bike and received it he continued open communication with me to make sure everything was just right.

    In terms of receiving the bike, everything was easy and laid out nicely. It came as expected, packaged safely and neatly. Assembly went well following the video and was actually enjoyable, getting to see the parts and components.

    The bike itself is high quality, user friendly, comfortable, and beautiful. Mine is Sunset Orange. You can read about Dutch bicycles or look at pictures of them but until you ride one you cannot really appreciate how nice they are. I have three road bikes and a time trial bike but, quite frankly, my Dutch bike is unsurpassed in how enjoyable it is to ride.

    If you are the type of bike rider who loves high speeds, going as fast as you can, aerodynamic bikes and all of that, you might think a Dutch bicycle is too pedestrian for you. If that is so, think again. I’m that type of rider but my Dutch bicycle is more fun than I ever imagined it would be.

    I live in the United States and there is nothing like my bike in the town where I live. It gets quite a bit of attention and questions. Of course, I always tell people how great the bike is, I show off the unique aspects, and I tell them how great the customer service is in case they ever want their own.

    It’s been two to three years and now I have two of these bicycles; one for me and my spouse. I got them decked out; double kickstand, full wired lights, shiftless transmission, seat suspension, and locking chain. This is my dream bicycle!

    It came, I assembled it (made little personal fit adjustments) and have simply been riding since. I’ve ridden all over major US cities, in all weathers, in all conditions, and it just rides like a dream. These bikes are so well made it’s crazy. I can’t say enough good things here, I’m surprised and pleased every time I pedal.

    This company product is phenomenal and the customer service is spot on. I literally cannot wait to buy more bikes (next a cargo?).

    These are bikes for life. Everyone can recognize how beautiful they are, how comfortable they are, and they’re just gorgeous. Two bikes, a few years, hundreds of miles, they just go. I’m writing this review after riding the heck out of my bike, hundreds and hundreds of miles, and after years of blissful use.

    Thank you for a wonderful bike. It’s amazing, I can’t wait ride! So safe, so comfortable, so quality, so amazing! Thank you!

    What a wonderful experience , the entire team. Was helpful and kept us informed the entire time . Even with Covid and shipping delays they made sure my bike was delivered safely (they even paid for half: as they said it’s the Dutch way). I love the bike it’s a fine piece of art. Beautiful and very well made.

    I highly recommend the Amsterdam Bicycle Company to anyone wanting a bike. You simply can’t beat the quality nor the service.

  8. RONALD GRAFT (verified owner)

    I can’t imagine a better built, comfortable ride for my wife, ease in changing gears for hill or flats then her Azor Ameland in Lollipop Violet with Enviolo Gearing. What a beautiful bike. She is not an experienced rider, but this set-up makes her a pro from day one.
    The whole process was way too simple in selecting the right configuration, and with Stevens feed back I was assured the “Right Dutch Bike was Ordered”.
    I received an email one day saying “your Bike will be ready in a few weeks” How exiting. Then another email, it has shipped, and a tracking number. Followed her on a 5500 mile trip to California to her new home. She lives in our spare bedroom now.
    Thank you Steven and your Associates for all your efforts in making this Happen for us.

  9. Jim

    Overall purchasing experience has been great. Steven did a great job ordering in the bike spec’d as I wanted and kept me well informed throughout the whole process. Some changes to shipping due to Covid related carrier issues. Here again, everything went smoothly and Steven kept a close eye on my incoming shipment and any changes.

    Bike actually arrived about two weeks earlier than expected. The bike itself is wonderfully made. It was packed extremely well and shipped mostly assembled. Took me no real time to finish the assembly and get it out on the road. It was obvious that the bike had been carefully assembled prior to shipping as I needed to make no real adjustments to the mechanics once I got it together. I did take time to check the headset and front hub and they were in proper shape with fresh grease and well adjusted preload on the bearings.

    Azor certainly cares about providing a quality product. The finish on the frame is quite beautiful and blemish free. The step through frame, quality racks and strong two legged kickstand will make this a breeze to use as a utility bike. Some other nice touches were all the installation and owner manuals for the various components that Amsterdam Bicycle Co. provided when they shipped the bike. On top of that, they also included the tools for assembly and basic maintenance of the bike as well as a adapter for the tire valves. Nice little touch to finish off what has been an awesome buying experience.
    By comparison, a Pashley I also bought early this year was an ok but but little to no communication from the distributor after purchase, and the bike also needed a fair amount of tuning to get it up and running.

    Amsterdam Bicycle Co’s customer service is in just another league from any other bike buying experience. I can’t recommend them and Azor enough. Thanks for a great new bike I’m going to enjoy for decades!

  10. Jen (verified owner)

    Steven, at Amsterdam Bicycle was very helpful with my various questions, and kept me updated on the bike progress. I let him know that there was some damage to the back rack and he quickly sent out a replacement.

    The custom color is truly stellar and I just adore the bike. Would highly recommend.

  11. Steven – Amsterdam Bicycle Company

    It was my pleasure Ted, enjoy your Azor Ameland!

  12. Ted Levin (verified owner)

    I absolutely love my Ameland bicycle from Amsterdam Bicycle Co.

    It came in mostly assembled, and it did not take long to complete the remaining parts.

    Steven was very helpful and responsive, I could not have asked for better service! I got delivery in the time that was promised. I’m ver happy with the bike and have been riding it daily, very good riding bicycle!

    I recommend it highly.
    Steven, thanks for all your help! You’re terrific!

    Absolutely love my new bicycle from Amsterdam Bicycle Company! I initially tried ordering a bicycle from within the US but demand was high and nothing available until late August due to Covid-19. Then with some fantastic help from Steven I was able to get my new bicycle towards end of June, as he promised. He was so helpful throughout the entire process to ensure I had a great experience and loved the bicycle. I also used Velotooler for assembly which was great as well. I have been riding it all over Kent Island, MD and couldn’t be happier.

    I highly recommend to anyone looking for great service and quality.

    Thanks Steven for all of your kind assistance!

  14. Elena

    Dreams do come true. My new bicycle, my fantastic Dutch bike, my Azor Ameland, I love it! Despite some shipping restrictions due to Covid-19 it was securely delivered right to my house in Venice, Florida, directly from Amsterdam.

    Steven, you are the best. Thank you so much for your help and support.

  15. Joe A (verified owner)

    It took some time to get here. However, it is a fantastic bike!
    And, Steven kept me up to date with progress and provided helpful recommendations throughout. It was fully assembled in my driveway via Velotooler.

    Thank you and your company for making these wonderful bikes easily and widely available.

  16. Gail Ekblad (verified owner)

    I was clueless on how to buy my daughter a “Dutch bike” to replace the one she had in Ireland but had to leave behind.

    Steven made my experience one I will never forget.
    He guided me on not only what to order but explained why. Steven even helped me order the correct child seat, and helped with ordering a basket too! Bike came and I had prepaid for assembly. Company even helped me hide the bike so my daughter would be surprised on Christmas.

    My daughter absolutely loves the bike and now we feel she is safer biking with her toddler on the back. She experienced several flat tires with her old bike while riding a toddler on the bike. With this bike I was able to upgrade the tires which is a huge safety feature. My grandson now asks to go for bike rides as he loves his new and more comfortable child seat. Great thing is we can arrange for regular tune ups at our house which will help the bike will last for years to come.

    Buying this bike was a life time investment for my daughters and grandsons pleasure and safety. What a pleasant experience.

    I ordered and received the Azor Ameland – Ladies Bike for my wife, as a surprise anniversary gift. She is so happy with this bike, which brings the awesome biking culture of Amsterdam to our community here in the U.S..

    The quality of the bike is superb and was well worth waiting for it to be hand made in Holland. We did have some slight freight damage in the shipment, which only provided another opportunity to prove Amsterdam Bicycle Company’s commitment to complete customer satisfaction. The items damaged in shipment were very quickly replaced by the company.

    Steven exceeded my exceptions by assisting me with the bike sizing and up-gradable options, along with insuring that the bike was delivered. I am planning to order another bike from the Amsterdam Bicycle Company, as my ride now is seriously inferior to the Azor Ameland – Ladies Bike’s ride and appearance.

  18. Mac Mail Andrea ELLIS 2011

    I just received my Ameland Azor in NYC and it’s a beauty.
    I opted to have Velotooler to assembled it and do not regret: Elvis was super efficient and happy to help. Communications with Steven were always smooth and agreeable.

    Definitely would recommend this company.

  19. L. Mares (verified owner)

    I just got my Ameland bike in and it is so nice. And cool looking.
    Steven was helpful answering all my questions prior to purchasing. I did the Velotooler option and glad I did. Worth it. The only thing I recommend if ordering and need it for a specific date, is to ask ahead of time what the production time frame is. Azor was behind and mine took 8 weeks to ship, but as it was just for me and didn’t need it by a certain time, it was ok.

  20. Kevin Filter (verified owner)

    I purchased the Ameland Azor for my wife recently. The bike is beautiful and turns heads everywhere in St. Paul, Minnesota.
    And while the bike is incredibly special and I would highly recommend it, the service at Amsterdam Bicycle was as good as it gets. From the day we completed the order form we were in touch with Steven Verschuijl. He made absolutely certain the we had the right bike, the right sizing, the right features, and the right color to make the the bike “just right”!
    He not only kept us informed as to timing and delivery but followed up to make sure the delivery went well and the bike was in perfect shape with no shipping issues.

    I have been in and had my own business for over 40 years, so I am sensitive to costumer service and if I could add additional stars to the rating for the service and care that Steven provided I would do so in a heartbeat.

    Well done Amsterdam Bicycle and Thank you Steven. Happy riding!

  21. RSB (verified owner)

    I purchased the Ameland for my wife to ride to work, about 1.5 mi one way with some medium hills. She loves it. I like to raise the saddle and take it for a spin around our neighborhood too!

    Quality is great. Pearl Blue paint job is beautiful. Every other bike we have has traditional external derailleurs and caliper brakes (or is a single speed), but the Shimano Nexus drive train and roller brakes are really nice.
    This our first Dutch-style city bike, and it is so much fun to ride, sitting upright and totally relaxed. You really do have a great view of the road and are more visible to cars. I found assembly easy, but I do have some experience doing routing maintenance on our other bikes.

    Steven was great and kept us updated throughout the process. I recommend Amsterdam Bicycle Company and Azor bikes without reservation.

  22. James Dawes

    I looked everywhere for a comfortable upright bike in my city. But nothing like the bikes I rode in The Hague. I was a little suspicious of buying online – but the owner was extremely attentive to detail and made everything both easy and perfect.
    I have never written an online review before but this time felt inspired to!
    Amazing bikes and service!

  23. Andy Wang (verified owner)

    Please refer to my review of Ameland – Gent’s bike regarding Steven’s service, which is excellent!
    The ladies bike itself is wonderful. Unlike most bikes on States side, these are made to last. Sturdy and practical. Should last many years.

  24. Marc H (verified owner)

    Well done, Steven!
    Before I ordered my bike, I had many questions, trying to decide between two different bikes, and various options. I asked them in an email and received a phone call within minutes from Steven. It was late here in Michigan. It was much later in Amsterdam. Steven answered all of my questions and left me to choose between the two units I was considering. (It is humbling to speak to someone in a foreign country who speaks better English than most of the people I know…)
    The next day I ordered a completely different configuration and expected the delivery in 5 or 6 weeks. I think it took 3 weeks. The shipment was delivered with several minor dents and short rips enlarging the hand holes in the box. The FedEx driver properly reported damage to the package. Before she left I had already determined the contents were fine. Steven had tracked my shipment and wrote me immediately, concerned about the reported damage to the container and the condition of my bike. I assured him everything was in perfect condition.

    Since delivery day, I have taken way more time than needed to finish assembly of this excellent machine. I treated it as “play time” and fussed over every possible thing. In my working life, I have been a motorcycle mechanic, a machinist, and a die maker. I am used to working to close tolerances on complex machines. I studied the manuals for the sub-assemblies which Steven sent me. I was fully prepared for an intense assembly experience. Wow, I was overly concerned!
    It seems each bike is completely assembled at the factory. Only the parts necessary to fit into the shipping box are removed or rearranged for shipping. I was worried about assembling the roller brake hubs and the gearbox. I had been studying the manuals for days. NOT NEEDED!
    Put the front wheel on. Put the handlebar post in place. Put the seat post in place. Put the pedals on. Hook up some cables and wires. That is pretty much it. The rest is tuning and adjusting it to fit your body.

    I asked Steven plenty of questions before and during assembly. The man is excellent at his job. He made the entire process a pleasure.
    Thank you, Steven, I’ll keep in touch.

  25. Steven – Amsterdam Bicycle Company

    Thank you for your great review Sam!

    About replacing the cables: there is no for that, because all cables (and nuts, bolts, fender stays, spokes etc) of the Ameland already are made of stainless steel.

    Please wish K. many comfortable and relaxed rides from me!


  26. Sam R

    Ordered one for my wife. She found it after a long while because she wanted a cruiser but I disliked the general poor quality of anything sold as a cruiser.

    She was very happy with the constant communication when ordering something from across the pond. Bike arrived exactly on time.

    The color is gorgeous, and the build and assembly quality were done well. I am probably too overzealous about hunting for things so I’d probably spent 6mo on looking at hundreds of cruiser and city bike designs. Its interesting to me how well designed these Dutch bikes are. Like a road bike uses a lot of fancier technology, but single features are not holistic design, if you understand what I mean.

    I had a handful of questions finishing the assembly, and Steven called me in the middle of the day in Chicago to answer everything. Very much appreciated.

    She says it rides like a dream.

    My one complaint was that a zip tie on the back light cable was overtightened. I may also replace the cables with stainless steel as I find they crack, but thats a universal problem.

    All in all I think the bike is worth the price.

  27. Cindy Ten Haaf (verified owner)

    My friends asked why in the world did I order a bike from the Netherlands? I asked them who rides more on a daily basis than the Dutch! I was very pleased with the entire purchase, delivery & assembly (Really impressive.) I was very pleased with the communication from Amsterdam Bicycle and the Velotooler.
    I highly recommend purchasing one of their bikes. Outstanding quality I am loving my new bike for cruising around the island. Oh of course I am Dutch but you don’t have to be to purchase a Great bike…..

  28. Lis Staehle (verified owner)

    My parents and 3 of my siblings were born in Holland. My parents told us stories about all the bikes in Amsterdam, and how sometimes they ended up in a canal. This started my fascination with a Dutch bike.

    What a wonderful experience I had working with Steven. He would respond quickly and always had answers to my questions. I received my Bike when promised. The Asbury Cycle Shop in Asbury Park, NJ picked up by bicycle (Betty) and put her together and returned her the next day. It was an amazing experience and I’m looking forward to buying a similar bike for my husband. Thanks!!!

    p.s. she is in my living room staying warm!

    I went to the Netherlands and I took a liking to their style of bicycle. So, for the first bike I’ve ever purchased for myself, I chose Amsterdam Bicycle Company. Their customer service has been exceptional. Steven, my customer service representative, reached out at every stage of the process to inform me and to make sure that any of my concerns were taken care of. Thank you Steven, I would recommend your services to anyone.

    As for the Velotooler service, there was a bit of a problem where they couldn’t render their services properly. I was told it was because I live in California so they had trouble finding a way to offer the same service. The service that I missed out on was where I was to have the bike already made and delivered- but instead it came in a box, partly built, and I had to bring it to a local mechanic to finish the build. But I didn’t find this to be too troubling and I don’t see this as a blemish on their service. Velotooler found the mechanic in advance, informed them and myself, and made sure I didn’t have to pay a dime for the build.
    They don’t seem like a company to allow this to happen twice and it was a small problem comparable to the overall great quality of service they gave. So I recommend them!

    This was going to be my first bicycle that was completely my own so I wanted it to be something I would love. My bicycle is stunning to look at and I’m so excited to ride it around. It’s so well made and it has the enclosed chain guard, which I love!
    The bike rides as smooth as silk and it’s really quite impressive! I’m convinced I chose the best bike I could have ever found for myself.

    The online buying process was one of the best experiences I have ever had and I felt a lot of confidence that I was choosing the right shop to purchase my bike. Steven was exceptionally helpful and checked in with me and made sure I chose the correct frame size and that I didn’t buy anything I didn’t need. The delivery was pretty quick and it all arrived perfectly. The FedEx driver even carted the box to my garage in the alley and how serendipitous was that‽

    All the Velotooler mechanic appointment set-up was taken care of for me. The bike mechanic came to me and put the bike together and he made it a really positive experience too! Everyone worked so well together and I could hardly believe how lucky I was to be able to get this wonderful bike along with five-star service from everyone involved!

  31. Thea (verified owner)

    Amazing bicycle and one of the best customer service experiences I have ever had. I used the Velotooler service and they were great, as well. The bike is an amazing ride, stable and smooth and effortless. It’s gorgeous and everyone who has seen it is smitten. Every time I look at it I am inspired to ride. It handles beautifully in the snow and on country roads (read: mud and dirt). I love it so much! Thank you, Steven, for such a fantastic experience!!

  32. Donald King (verified owner)

    Excellent customer service and a fantastic buying experience. I ordered two bikes, one for me and one for my wife. I had both bikes in about two weeks. Excellent communication from Steven along the way. I ordered with the 85% complete option. I found assembly to be fairly easy and straight forward. As for the bike, My wife loves it.
