From NL to NY: Welcome Demo Bike! 🚲

Originating from Holland, CLIP’s new-old demo bike has come a long way to settle into its newest home- The NewLab.

With it’s faded olive green frame, a blurred front light, and a seat that looks like it has accommodated many, the Zandvoort bike fits right into Northwest Brooklyn.

Like the majority of Dutch bikes, the Zandvoort has a unique upright sitting position that promises a very comfortable ride. (The CLIP.bike team would know- the bike rolled up and down our NewLab headquarters shortly upon arrival.)

Manufactured in the Netherlands, pedals from Germany, rims made in France- similar to the average New Yorker, this vintage bike is a little bit of everything. 

The bike parked in front of Judy’s family owned horse stable, next door to her flower shop.

This Zandvoort’s most recent admirer is a woman named Judy, the owner of a family run flower shop in Middletown, Connecticut. Judy shares that the bike was passed down from a family friend who often brought the bike onto her boat, using it for transportation when they docked. To complete this cycle of traveling water-style, the Zandvoort was brought to NewLab via New York City’s East River Ferry. 

The Zandvoort is lucky to have been a part of the McInerney family for nearly 3 years, and the CLIP.bike Team is looking forward to carrying it onto it’s next journey: testing out the growing world of e-mobility.
