CRAIGHTON - OMA PURE - DUTCH STEP THROUGH
♥ Staff Pick
If Achielle is the Vermeer of Dutch bikes then the Craighton is his masterpiece, Girl with a Pearl Earring. Hand-drawn tubes, hand-brazed, galvanized, hand-painted, hand-assembled and dripping with top drawer components. Each step an accountability in the relentless pursuit of building investment-grade, lifetime products.
Our Achielle Craighton Oma Pure bikes all have Shimano Nexus 8 speed gearing giving a massive range of gears in a weatherproof and maintenance free hub, Shimano roller brakes take care of the stopping without the need to ever change brake pads again, Shimano and Busch & Muller dynamo lighting so you are always safe and the rest of the finishing kit is all top drawer custom parts from Brooks leather saddle, stainless steel rims and the awesome Hebie Bipod double kickstand.
So, if you’re looking for a real Dutch bike? Look no further than Belgium and the stunning Achielle Craighton Oma Pure. Belgium has kept up the bicycle building tradition that much of Holland has lost to cost-cutting and overseas production.
About a century ago bicycles companies weren't much different than your local baker, there was one in each village and each one did things a bit differently. In Holland, these companies expanded to different provinces, then different countries, and each time this happened something essential was lost - quality being one. Not Achielle. They still hand build and assemble their bikes in Pittem, Belgium - and the Craighton is their masterpiece.

ACHIELLE COMPANY HISTORY: Achielle have effectively 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 (Egem). The inspiration for Achielle bicycles stems from the early 20th century dutch bikes and then combining these with modern technological advances. What makes Achielle truly unique is that all steel frames are still produced in our own factory. From steel tube to complete bicycle in one workshop. So, when Achielle say Handmade in Belgium. They mean from start to finish.
