Light Dutch bike with the extra bit of comfort
The Gangurru Deluxe offer the same great value for money as the Classics, but are lighter, more comfortable and available in four exclusive vintage colors.
The main difference to the Gangurru Classics is, that the Deluxe series has an alloy frame (compared to the steel frame in the Classics). This makes the bikes 1.5kg lighter (10%) and more rigid for better pedaling transmission. Aluminum is also corrosion-resistant, which means that even if there is paint damage, rust on the frame is not an issue. The bikes are rounded off with improved comfort parts: metal pedals instead of plastic, a rotary shift lever combined with ergonomic rubber grips, and better tires.
Inexpensive city bike equipped for everyday use
The price includes the steel and rattan baskets in the front, a luggage rack at the back, fixed front and rear lights (battery), and also all other parts required for a city bike, such as stand, chain and mudguard, bell, et cetera.
Optional you can also upgrade the bike to a Brooks leather saddle (CHF 80, very durable and adapts to the rider over time), matching Brooks leather grips (CHF 40), and even switch to a hub dynamo (CHF130 including a new dynamo front wheel, dynamo-powered lights and the conversion work).
When you should buy a Gangurru
With 15kg bike weight, the Gangurru Deluxe are a bit lighter and make the commute to work is even more pleasant. The Gangurru-standard Shimano 7-speed drive brings you sweat-free (or at least sweat-reduced) up the hill. The light is permanently installed so that nobody can steal it from you easily. In our opinion, the Gangurru bike is still the best value for money in bike Switzerland!
The Gangurru is the right bike for you ...
... if you are a leisurely rider: The dutch bike style means a very upright seating posture; that is very comfy, but not very sporty.
... if you don't have mountains on your commute and don't do distances of more than 15km per way on a daily basis. This would get strenuous because of the posture. The streets in Basel, Winterthur, Berne and Zurich are usually flat enough.
... if you are willing to do a minimum of maintenance for your bike.
... if you are looking for a bike that is checked by experts and pre-assembled.
When you shouldn't buy a Gangurru
The Deluxe still fall into the category of affordable bikes, and those definitely need some care. All bikes need this, but with a affordable bike you really have to do it. This is even more pronounced if you have no way of storing the bike.
We recommend to our customers to invest just 10 minutes per month – that's enough already! In these 10 minutes you pump the tires, clean the pretty color with an old rag, and apply some chain lube.
If you don't want to go this effort, we recommend you to invest more into your next bicycle, because the more expensive material provides a bit more resistance against the weather.
If there are still uncertainties, you can read more about your bicycle purchase in our guide to buying an affordable bike.
Gangurru by Loris Velos
We are very proud of our Gangurrus - and yes, they are ours.
We import the cheap Reid bikes made in the Far East into Switzerland ourselves, and then put Swiss work into assembly and adjustment. This is the only way we can guarantee that the bikes meet Swiss quality standards. We have been gaining experience since 2013 and have improved our bikes year after year, and will continue to do so in the future
We, Loris Velos, are a bike Shop in Münchenstein near Basel. So if you are interested in buying and live in Basel or the surroundings, we warmly invite you to our shop for a test ride. We are a 8 minute trip away by tram from the Basel SBB Train station, or 10min per bike.
