Jorg&Olif Scout Bike
The classic Dutch styling and quality construction of Jorg&Olif's Citybikes made us instant fans when they debuted in the North American market last year, but the price tag (starting at $800) was a little less easy to embrace. Their introduction of the more affordable Scout makes cruising around the neighborhood in style a little more realistic.
Equipped with a light, rear rack, chain guards, internal Shimano hubs and all the features that we liked about the original Citybike, the only difference is that Scout's only available in one- ($495) and three-speed ($595) versions—which is about all you need in most cities anyway. Available in special edition "Mushroom" (pictured) and "Steel Blue" colors as well as black, it's due out 10 August but you can preorder by emailing Jorg&Olif at info [dot] jorgandolif [dot] com or by calling +1 604 877 1850.
