The company behind General Lee, Classic wit en F Fixie
In the current world where everybody is short on time, speed of transportation is key to make the most out of your day. Besides that, we want to look good doing so. This was the motivation of two Dutch guys from Amsterdam to start their own fixiebrand, called JACOB. One of the founders saiid: "I want to drive through the city fast, but not on an expensive carbon-bike. The other option would be to take an old bike, there goes the "good looking" part..". The other founder wanted to create a unique bike which stands out in both design and colour compared to the standard Dutch "omafiets". The result was thé JACOB bike, a so-called fixie.
BUYING A JACOB FIXIE
A fixie is both light and minimalistic, JACOB fixies are focused on quality, are low maintenance and have an unique clean design in three colours which really stand out. Either you need to paddle through the city, getting from A to B asap, or want to cruise to school or work, covering a long distance along the way, or you want to stand out with a unique bike. You cannot go wrong with a real JACOB fixie with an Amsterdam design.
