Dutch city bikes are outstanding commuter bikes — in Amsterdam. These large, heavy, slow-steering bikes are not really fit for any aspect of big-city life in America, but hey, they’re in style. So what if it doesn’t fit in the elevator, the staircase or anywhere else? Who cares that it’s more expensive — and quite possibly heavier — than a decent used motorcycle? It’s only money. And back surgery.
