The Duchess has been leading the way in heritage style, 26” wheels and a 15” frame, comfortable bikes for several years now. This new version has been upgraded to include a colour coordinated rear carrier, and a handy double basket. Why do I need two baskets I hear you say? When you stop off at your local shop and want to remove your normal basket fitted to your handlebars, you need to unclip it from a mounting bracket. Not very elegant at all. With our new double basket design, the steel basket stays securely on the bike at all times, and the stylish rattan basket with carry handle slips out of it’s holder with ease, allowing you to quickly, easily and elegantly use it for your shopping, then just drop it back in place. Lovely. Mix with that the new metallic paint job and reliable Shimano gearing and you have the perfect recipe for a smooth ride.
