GAZELLE VAN STAEL 7
Gazelle dates back to 1892 and the Van Stael references their 1915 Tour de France racer while retaining practical features, such as full-size chain and mudguards. If you’re confident with a coaster brake, the Van Stael stops sharply and we’re fans of the Nexus hub. A 3-speed model is £589. The Van Stael steers nicely but isn’t very compliant ride. Assuming you like this single colour, we think it’s a cracking town bike.
