This review is long overdue. After a few years of thinking about, poring over, testing, and then buying an inexpensive sort-of, Dutch bike, I finally purchased a WorkCycles GR8 in February 2017 (3 1/2 years ago) from Jon. I will start off by saying this is the best purchase I have ever made. Although I still love my touring bike for longer jaunts, the enjoyment I get from riding my GR8 is unequaled. I use it as a daily commuter and for shopping (I have managed 6 full grocery bags!), and also for anything under a long weekend ride (although it works well for those too if not in too much of a hurry). I love how simple and easy it is to ride in any clothing, from a suit to a bathing suit. I can strap a beach chair on the rack, and put a backpack in the basket with all I need for the day. It is almost unbelievably comfortable. The rear wheel lock is simple genius, the full chain case makes chain maintenance almost non-existent and protects pants legs, the dynamo lighting is convenient and safe, and I never need worry about staying out after dark. Riding it gives me a joy that's just like when I was a kid on a single speed coaster brake bike - simple pleasure and freedom. I tried several of the models JC Lind carries and all were wonderful. I liked the industrial look and the sturdy feel of the GR8, but would have enjoyed any of them equally. And Jon and his colleagues are fantastic - genuinely nice, expert, and with a true desire to help. I can't recommend the shop or the bikes highly enough. Just try it and you'll see!
