A Black Bike
A commenter on Sigrid's blog My Hyggelig, brings us this encouraging discovery, a 'dutch' bicycle distributor in New York City: A Black Bike
Their web site says they carry bicycles "built by Holland's best bicycle builder using top quality materials and fitted with the latest technology in gears, brakes and accessories." So that would suggest Azor, Gazelle or Koga Miyata are supplying the frames? And the gears would be in-hub (Shimano or Sturmey-Archer?)
However the bicycle pictured appears to be single speed and have only coaster brakes. The web site is registered to someone in the 11205 zip, which is around Fort Green or South Williamsburg. I'm looking forward to learning more... Have any more info? Post in the comments, please.
