The Achielle Craighton Oma Pure Step-Through is the archetype for all city bikes, Dutch bikes included. In a world of Dutch bike facsimiles and the march towards offshore production (seen especially in Holland), the Craighton is a bike still done the old way. The quality is uncompromising: hand-drawn tubes, hand-brazed frames, rust-resistant undercoats, powder-coat finishes, hand-assembled and equipped with top drawer components. In the march towards disposability, the Craighton is still made to last a lifetime (it will likely last longer!). 

The Achielle Craighton Oma is made for the cold rain off the North Sea or Lake Ontario, and it's one of the few bikes that can weather perpetual outdoor storage, even in a Northeast winter. It's equipped with Shimano's ultra-sealed and ultra-reliable Nexus 8 speed hub. Holland may be flat but this is a bike that can climb, and that's due to the wide gear range built into the Nexus 8 speed hub. Within both hubs are powerful drum brakes, also sealed from the weather, and in the front hub a dynamo to produce electricity for the German-made lighting system. The list of features is near-endless: Schwalbe's top puncture-resistant tire, the Marathon Plus; a Hebie double kickstand with a steering stabilizer, the ever-useful Dutch rear-wheel lock, a luxury Brooks B67 saddle. The Oma classic Dutch position sits you high above traffic with comfort, safety and confidence.

Achielle have been making bikes in the traditional way since 1946. Starting from humble beginnings in a family owned bicycle shop in Zwevezele to the present modern factory in Pittem, they have a long and storied past. Achielle has the advantage of being Belgian and they make bikes that bridge the lighter, speedier porteur bikes of Paris with the almost-overbuilt omafiets bikes of Amsterdam. Today, Achielle is still a small family business and they still produce their bikes in Belgium, from raw steel tubes to finished bicycles.
