Our 2015 goal is to get an even better pressence on the East Coast. Therefore, we will open an office in New York.
This second office will mostly focus on the North American market and look into expansion of our concepts.
Naturally, the bikes will still come from the Netherlands! Our Head Quarters in Amsterdam will focus on the European market and on procurement.
See you later! We will keep you posted!!!
“Protected bike lanes are the latest approach US cities are taking to help their residents get around by bike. But these protected lanes lose their buffer separation at intersections, reducing the comfort and safety for people riding. What the protected bike lane needs is the protected intersection.”
“This proposal for the George Mason University 2014 Cameron Rian Hays Outside the Box Competition presents a vision for a safe, clear intersection design that improves conditions for all users. Proper design of refuge islands, crossing position and signal timing can create a safe intersection that people of all ages and abilities would feel safe in.”

We are the first company to use crowd-funding to import Dutch bikes to the USA direct to consumers. Stay tuned for our first campaign soon!
We are Tijmen Struijk and Rob McPherson and we founded Dutch Double Bar Bicycles in November 2013. Rob is an American expat living in Amsterdam, Tijmen is a Dutch native.
We met through a mutual friend at a brunch in Amsterdam and immediately connected. We both have a healthy passion for cycling and use it as our main mode of urban transportation. We believe that the way the Dutch use cycling for their urban commute is something New York could really appreciate.
Exciting event Tuesday, June 3, 2014 – 5:45pm to 10:00pm at 3B Brooklyn!
Dinner and Bikes at 3B Brooklyn
Elly Bleu will present about Bikenomics and the economic case for bicycling.
“Bikenomics provides a surprising and compelling new perspective on the way we get around and on how we spend our money, as families and as a society. The book starts with a look at the real transportation costs of families and individuals, and moves on to examine the current civic costs of our transportation system. The book tells the stories of people, businesses, organizations, and cities who are investing in two-wheeled transportation. The multifaceted North American bicycle movement is revealed, with its contradictions, challenges, successes, and visions.”
