A custom bike offers a solution for people who are no longer able to move on a regular bike.
Whether it is a bike with a very low entry, a tricycle or a three-wheel tandem (or more wheels).
For every person there is a solution to cycle anyway.
A leader in this segment of bike builders is surely the Dutch Bike Builder Van Raam.
A company that has at least 100 years experians in building bikes, but the last 30 years has started to specialize in customized bikes.
With more than 100 employees, Van Raam is in Varsseveld creating quality bicycles for adults and children with disabilities or those who seek greater security and stability in cycling.
Van Raam’s bicycles are sold by Dutch and foreign dealers and are available in almost all Western European countries.
What options are there for custom bikes?
The best solution for people who can not keep balance on a regular bicycle, or have too little energy to maintain a constant balance on the bike. An additional advantage of such a bike is that the bike is stable when getting on and off.
And is of course available with pedal assistance.
For people in wheelchairs, there is a work around to show the feeling of cycling.
Even though they no longer cycle.
In the VeloPlus the passenger can keep sitting in his or her own wheelchair. Virtually any hand-driven wheelchair can be driven and fixed easily on the tilted plateau of the wheelchair by one person without transferring the passenger.
Alll wheelchair bikes are available as an electric bike with pedal support, and there are many options available to personalize the bike.
A three-wheel tandem
A three-wheel tandem, in which the users sit beside each other. One person steers, both can pedal. The two persons have a good view and can communicate well with each other due to the seats being next to each other.
The riders can get on without having to step through and the seats can be easily adjusted to the required distance with a lever.
The ideal bike for people to cycle again, even though they no longer can cycle alone.
In addition it is nice to cycle together and increases the social environment of the people.
For everyone a bicycle.
Dutch are fond of bicycles and deFietssite is happy that through companies such as Van Raam also disabled people can enjoy cycling.
Cycling is healthy, better for the environment, and also very good for the economy.
