FAQ

What is a ‘single-speed’ bike? 
Single Speed means ‘at one pace’. Just one gear. Ideal for your daily trips. You can keep your feet steady while cycling, and use a coaster brake (brake with your pedals) to slow down. Just like a regular city bike!

How fast can I go?
A Lust For Rust bike goes 1.5 to 2 times as fast as a regular city bike. How? Smaller tyres and a more efficient body position on your bike. In addition, the bike weighs less, because of the limited number of parts on the bike.

What’s the thickness of the tyres?
The tyres and wheels are 'in between' a regular city bike and a racing bike: 2.8 cm. This ensures less friction, yet enough stability for the city.

 

Help! I see no mudguards!

A black click-on mudguard will be deliverd with every Lust For Rust bike. It keeps your back dry and clean when needed. Put it on in fall and winter. Take it off in spring and summer.


How should I brake?
All Lust For Rust bikes make use of a coaster brake. This means that you can brake with your pedals. Easy, strong, and no ugly handbrake which could… break.

What's the delivery time?
We ship our bikes every day. This means that it will take 1 or 2 days to reach your place. Customized bikes are delivered within two to three weeks.

How will the bike be delivered?
PostNL will take care of the delivery of your bike. Your bike is shipped from Utrecht to your home. During shipment, the bike will partly be disassembled. You’ll need to assemble the frontwheel, bar and saddle yourself. Of course, we will deliver the right tools and instructions to do so.

How can I pay?
On our website we accept IDeal or a banktransfer. If you're not able to use one of those, let us know and we will help you out within minutes!

Can I return the bike?
Yes, of course you can. However, the bike needs to come back to us in the same state as we've sent it to you. Customized bikes can’t be returned.

Can I see the bike before I buy it?
Yes, you can! Even though the photos in our shop clearly show what the bike is like, we understand that you want to see the bike 'in real'. Contact us and come check out the bike in Utrecht!

Do I buy a 'new' bike?
Partly. The frames are refurbished. This means that used frames are checked, sandblasted and coloured with a high quality powder coating. All other parts, including the wheels and bottom bracket are new. This ensures a strong, sustainable, new life for your bike. From the city, for the city.  

Can I create my own bike?
Yes. We’re happy to shape a bike in your colours! Check out the customize page and create your own!
