Workcycles began in 2003 when Henry Cutler, an American ex-pat living in Amsterdam, decided to put his skills in industrial design to use by designing and making the most practical, comfortable, durable, daily-use bikes in the world. Workcycles is now famed for many of its unique, problem-solving designs, but the company also sells bikes that are essentially modified and improved versions of classic Dutch bikes. The Workcycles Oma is one such bike.
The Workcycles Oma has a silhouette that is timeless and classic. It belongs in the 30s, the 50s, the 70s, and it belongs to us now. The handlebars, which sweep backwards, give the rider a straight upright posture. It is easily the cushiest, most upright bicycle Workcycles offers, which perhaps means it's the cushiest, most upright bike in the world. The large 28" x 1.75" Schwalbe Marathon tires offer both puncture resistance and cushion that helps to absorb the very worst bumps and rumbles that city streets can dish out. The step-through design allows riders with a range of heights and flexibility to mount and dismount easily. Its construction and components make the Oma the ideal choice for shorter distance, little-or-no-hills commuting--durable, dependable, and comfortable, through daily riding in any weather for years on end.
The components on the bike are noticeably the same as nearly every other Workcycles bike we sell: a Shimano Nexus 8 speed internal gear hub, Shimano roller brakes, a Shimano dynamo hub which powers front and rear LED lights, a fork spring to steady the front wheel when parked on its double-leg kickstand, and a fully-enclosed chaincase. The sturdy rear rack and full-coverage fenders complete the ensemble of useful features, ensuring you can carry your goods in panniers or saddlebags.
The Oma comes standard with a frame mounted front carrier rack. This unique feature can be removed/installed within seconds so you can leave it at home if you don't need it. Due to it's frame mounted design it is capable of carrying more weight than a typical handlebar/fork mounted front rack. And since the weight is supported by the frame of the bike it doesn't impact the steering and your handlebars will not flop around when your bike is parked on its kickstand.
