The arrival of these bikes was featured on the Eastsider LA blog on January 8, 2010, “Eastside Shopper & Diner“.
Flying Pigeon LA bike shop acquired some beautiful bicycles from Belgian bike maker “Achielle” (Ahck-ill-ee) in December of 2009. The two models shown are the Dutch 3-Speed in Creme (the step-through frame) and the Retro 3-Speed in Creme (the classic diamond frame).
We don’t carry the full line of Achielle bikes (yet), but you may recognize the frames – they are identical to those sold by “Jorg&Olif”. In fact, they are made in the same facilities.
Both come kitted out with some very plush Brooks leather saddles and leather grips. Chains are covered, rear wheel locks are part of the package, as are nice dynamo (no batteries!) lights for the front and rear.
