7-Speed City bike with basket and light
A pretty Vintage Bike designed for middle and short distances in the city. The ideal bike for the way to the pool, to school, grocery shopping or the way to work. Price includes the front steel & cane baskets, the rack, fix-installed battery lights, and everything else a city bike needs (kick stand, fenders, bell, ...). The "light" version comes with an aluminium frame.
When you should buy a Gangurru
With only 15.5kg bike weight is the Gangurru Vintage bike a great compromise between Vintage-Classic and functional. The Shimano-7-Gang-Gearing will help you to reach the hill top sweat-less (or at least sweat-reduced). The light is fix-installed so you will never forget it and no one can steal it easily. In our opinion, the Gangurru bike still is the best price-performance offer in bike Switzerland!
The Gangurru is the right bike for you...
...if you are a leisurely rider: The dutch bike style of the Gangurru Vintage Bike 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
Affordable bikes require in any case some maintenance. Admittedly, every bike needs that, but with affordable bikes you actually need to care. This effect is even stronger, if you don't have the opportunity to shelter your bike from the weather over night.
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 Bikes 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 a Gangurru 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.
