Dutchi 3i3-Speed Internal
Dutchi 3i3-Speed Internal
ELEGANT, FEMININE & INDEPENDENT
The upright riding position makes it very comfortable for everyday use, and the low step-through frame allows for easy on and off. If there ever was a frame designed for trips to the flower market or picking up fresh baked bread, this is it.
We apply a second layer of protective clear coat to the paint. It’s more work for us but it makes the paint stronger and more resilient for you. Two coats are better than one.
Leather Wrapped Grips
Hand-stitched genuine leather grips naturally absorb sweat and soften over time. If you ever had your skin against vinyl on a hot summer’s day, you’ll understand why we can’t compromise on genuine leather.
Wherever possible, we've chosen to make all the nuts, bolts, and washers on our bikes out of stainless steel. Stainless is much more resistant to rust than your typical chrome plated hardware. This small detail extends the life of your bike and helps to preserve its good looks.
The flat surface of a head set is a place where water often settles and over time rust develops. That's why we chose to make our sets out of aluminum so they don’t rust.
This bike is internally geared, which means you have the benefit of multiple gears without a cumbersome derailleur. For city riding, internal gears have many advantages. They are extremely reliable, require very little maintenance, you can shift without pedaling, and they're very easy to use.
Reflective Tire Wall
This bike has reflective tire walls, greatly enhancing your visibility at night. You can see quite clearly that without the reflective tire wall, a bike is nearly invisible on a dark street.
This bike has sealed bearings in the front hub. The advantages of sealed bearings over loose bearings are less friction, no maintenance, and more resistant to grit, grime and weather, making for smooth rides and extending the life of the bike.
We use 13 Gauge stainless steel spokes on the rear wheel because they are thicker and stronger than the standard 14 Gauge. Stronger spokes make stronger wheels, which is great when carrying extra weight like groceries or toddlers over bumpy city streets.

Medium: 5'2" - 5'10" / 157.4cm - 177.8cm
*Note: Some riders may be a little outside these height range recommendations but prefer the feel of a larger or smaller size. Stand over height measurement is not as important as how the bike geometry feels while it is being ridden. As long as the rider can reach the ground while sitting on the saddle, even if it's just their toes, this size will be compatible with their height.
I happened upon Linus Bikes while searching for a bicycle as a birthday present for our granddaughter. Thankfully I browsed through the adult bikes and purchased the Dutchi 3i for myself. What a fabulous ride! Now I can join the family rides through the neighborhood. Easy to assemble, an excellent ride, and one posh looking bicycle. I have renewed my love for cycling and enjoy another extracurricular activity that both my husband and I enjoy. I’m going to have to get him an upgrade and a Dutchi 3i for my daughter as well when they are back in stock. Press the button! It’s well worth it.
Beautiful. High quality. Comfortable. Perfect.
i’ve been away from cycling for years. the Linus Roadster is my reintroduction to biking and i could t be more happy with my purchase.
Everything i wanted. Definitely glad i opted for the 7 speed, we have plenty of hills here in Tacoma WA.
I am 5’9” and i went for the medium. perfect fit as i have kinda short legs.
My granddaughter loves her ocean blue bike! It is as beautiful as it is fun for her to ride.
Glad that I purchased this bike. My wife loves it!
This bike rides like a dream. I live in an area with a lot of hills and I am able to ride with ease. The 8 gears help make my commute a breeze. The only bummer is that it doesn’t come with a kickstand. Luckily Linus sells it for only $50.
It took me a while to choose my new bike, having not had once since I was a teen. But I’m so happy I went with Linus. The colour, quality, customer service... all exceptional. Also really chuffed with the basket.
This is the perfect bike for getting around the city. I live in Atlanta and the city streets can be rough so I was a little worried this bike may not be sturdy enough but it is perfect! In addition to the smooth ride it’s just a beautifully designed and classic looking bike. I have had several people stop me and ask where I got it. I highly recommend this bike for anyone who wants a functional and fashionable bike for commuting or cruising.
Love this thing. Exactly what I was looking for.
The Roadster Classic is a light and sturdy bike.
The roadster is an eye turner and a performer. Perfect for riding around the neighborhood.
I love this bike! The ride is smooth and the internal derailleur shifts so smoothly! We had it adjusted by our local bike shop after we assembled it (not hard at all) and I’ve had zero problems with it. The bike did arrive with a small dent in the front fender from shipping, but I simply called Linus and they shipped a new fender to me immediately, and they were so easy to work with.
Pretty easy to assemble. Beautiful bike! Can’t wait to take it out for a ride
All is well, bike assembled without trouble. Instructions were clear and the bike was well packed, making it easy to find the parts. Already I am a strong fan of Linus! Now, if the weather improves, I’ll actually ride it outdoors....
Seems like a great li’l bell!
We put it together for the customer who ordered it, it is about the cutest little bike we have seen and seems sturdy!
My new bike was delivered within a week! It was easy to assemble except for two missing bolts. I called Linus and they sent them out immediately. Everything’s good, so cool.
I absolutely love the bike! I have not biked in over 20 years and wanted to get into it with an entry-level commuter bike. I did a bunch of research, looked and looked, and decided to go with Altore mainly because it blends the look I was after and the functionality of a relatively light 7 speed. I had the bike sent directly to me, and it was a breeze to assemble and set up. I threw the Linus fenders and adjustable rear rack on it...absolutely awesome. Highly recommend this bike as a really fun starter bike. I'll put it through a few years of commuting and errands and might upgrade, but I'll keep this bike around as a fun rig to take for a spin.
I love the simple elegance of this bike. It is fun and easy to ride and I get lots of compliments.
I have been riding my roadster 7i to work everyday since I got it, and it’s such a joy. The 7 gears are enough to help you up hills while still be able to keep up a fast speed downhill and flat. So many people turn their heads to look at the bike when I ride it! The green color mixed with the brown leather details is perfection . Super happy with my purchase!
We all ride Linus, and we love them!
I recently purchased the Roadster 7i bike for daily commuting to work and around town. I also purchase the Linus briefcase to hook onto my pannier rack, and I couldn't be happier with the combination. I finally have a bike/bag combo that makes it easy to commute with a laptop. I also got the Delano basket for the front - I love how useful the basket is, and my only comment is that the basket makes the bike a little unsteady when parked. It can cause the front fork to 'swivel' when parking the bike, and has caused my bike to fall over a couple of times. As long as I park carefully, I don't have an issue. Beautiful, and smooth ride.
After dedicating my old Linus Dutchi bike to riding my baby around with the Thule front seat (that I bought at Linus), I decided I needed a bike that was just for me! I love the Dutchi 3i, and I adored the matte Cyan color! I also added the wooden box on back and a cute basket on front so I can take it to the farmers market and get everything home!
I love my new bike. It's adorable and extremely comfortable.
I absolutely love this bike! I’m not the most handy so I had a local bike shop assemble it and all the employees just couldn’t stop talking about it. They said a woman tried to buy it after she saw it assembled on the showroom floor. The gears shift smoothly and I highly recommend the Linus wooden crate.....super handy!
Love my new bike.
The bike was pretty simple to assemble, you do need to get you hand on some tools, so having a friend who's done it before is helpful! Otherwise the bike rides beautifully and looks beautiful.
I’ve been riding this bike roughly 20km everyday since I’ve got it & I can’t say a bad thing about it. It drives beautifully, it’s well built/designed, and it’s well worth it for the quality. I would highly recommend this bike and other Linus products to anyone who is looking for the perfect commute.
I love my new Linus bicycle! It’s lightweight, well make and fun to ride!
A great bike at a great price!
Bought an eraser-pink babydoll of a Dutchi as a grand prize raffle item for the Tour de Fleur women's ride grand prize. Some incredibly fortunate woman is about to fall in love with cycling if she hasn't already. Linus made it incredibly easy, bike shop employees fell in LOVE with her and I can't wait to present her this weekend. I think I need to order another for myself...
I ordered this bike for my daughter's fifth birthday. I was worried she would outgrow it quickly because she is tall for her age, but it fits perfectly and might even last two years. She adores the bike. She learned to ride in just a couple days, and we didn't even use the training wheels. (She was on a balance bike before.) Riding around brings her such joy. I have a grown-up Dutchi, and she loves that we have the same bike in different colors. There was a little hiccup with the order fulfillment, but the Linus staff were super helpful and responsive over email. Thank you!!
If you are looking for the perfect bike, look no further. Everything Linus touches is gold. Their bikes are comfortable, well made, and stylish.
Fast shipping, seems like a decent product. Easy to assemble.
I've purchased a number of partially assembled bikes and this one is definitely tops as it comes to quality. You can really tell how well a bike will last simply by the quality of paint and finish - which Linus has done well. Assembly was straightforward and the wife is loving her new bike.
LOVE my Linus Roadster Sport. Very well made bike, with classic styling and amazing accessories. Perfect for commuting in historic downtown Savannah.
I love the bike and it's 'thin' profile. It's more handsome than I expected and a comfortable, upright ride. The rear fender is a little tight and tends to brush up on the tire.
Absolutely love the look of the bike with cream tires. Customer service and delivery were great. I put the bike together myself due to tight timing woth the holidays. Delivery was 2days and assembly took 1-2hrs but was pretty straightforward. Minor tuning needed to front breaks, but other than that, the gears came attatched and fairly well tuned. The metal around the chain gaurd and fenders is a little flimsy and I needed to bend them a bit to align properly. Overall great experience and beautiful bike for $599.. best part, my wife is happy.
My wife and I each have one and all I can say is how much more we wish we could ride. They are smooth, comfortable, kinda retro, kinda hipster and too much fun. Enjoy an edible and marvel at the city at night while riding your Linus.
So happy with my Linus bike. I really couldn’t be any happier. The look and quality of the bike is exactly what I needed and it exceeded all my expectations! :)
I’m 5’6 and purchased a medium and it’s the perfect size. It also came with a rear rack and bell which was pretty awesome.
Been a longtime fixed gear rider and have had built up a few around town cruisers. But this bike takes the cake. I wanted something functional and aesthetically pleasing to the eye to ride about town. This bike is super comfortable and rides really Smooth. I get complements on this bike every time I take her out. Deffenitly recommend this bike!
Amazing bike! Rides so smooth and feels safe. The delivery service made everything convenient and I appreciated that. Would recommend Linus bikes to anyone who is thinking of getting one!
This is my dream bike. Color is very nice, easy shifting of the gears, and upright. No pressure on my wrists or shoulders. Bike is built to last. Already have a front basket. So many complements.
Just stayed at a boutique Marriott and guess the brand of bikes they offer to guests...yep, Linus.
Attention to detail - great riding and great looking town bikes. Better than anything else in this market segment.
I’ve been riding a Linus for a couple years and when it was time for a new bike for my daughter I went right to Linus. Very well-made and great looking bikes that are a breeze to maintain.
Best bike ever! So happy with this purchase!
Went together quite easily out of the box. Smoothest around town ride, makes hauling a Chariot a breeze and I love grocery store runs with panniers.
Very impressed with the quality of the Dutchi. Bought it for my wife and now I want to get one!
Love my beautiful new Linus Dutchi 8 - a dream to ride! This bike is so well made and gorgeous in every way!! Everything went perfectly - ordered online from Linus Bike, was sent exactly when they said it would be and Bicylcle Cellar in Tempe assembled it promptly and I picked it up. This was so easy and the service was incredible from start to finish. Did I mention it is a beautiful bike and a dream to ride:)
We love our Linus bikes! We ride them all over the neighborhood. Great bike for serious kid riders :)
Rad gnarly tires and a great design on these I think we are going to start carrying them on the floor at our shop soon!
Kiddo loves this bike! Great quality, super cute, easy to ride -- a perfect first "real" bike.
Put this bike together in my garage for my wife! She loves it! It rides so smooth and the gears shift effortlessly! A great purchase from a great company!
I have been looking for a stylish step-through bike. This one is perfect, and the color marine is beautiful! Delivery was easy through Velofix. The Velofix rep told me that you do not have to be moving to change gears which makes it so easy to ride. I am very happy with my new gorgeous Dutchi 3.
I’ve only had the Linus Mixte 3 for one week and it has been superb for cruising around the city. Easy to handle, very light for carrying up and down stairs and of course stylish!
I love my bike ♥️
Have been looking for a great bike for a while and have been keeping my eye on the Linus Dutchi - it has everything! A comfortable seat and an upright riding position. The bike is surprisingly light and 3 speeds make it easy to climb the hills around Atlanta. Great purchase!
LINUS GREAT BIKE /GREAT PROGRAM SHIPEARLY
Great starter bike. My two-year-old niece loved it, and in a few years, my nephew will also. Thanks.
I was in the market to get a slightly overpriced trendy commuter bike and the aesthetics of the Linus bikes really caught my eye. I went to Columbus (Ohio) and got to demo one of their bikes and was impressed with the build so I decided to order one. I absolutely would recommend going with at least a three speed bike, even in relatively flat Ohio, I definitely find the three gears helpful. The bike is exactly what I wanted, looks even better in person than it does online. One warning: definitely size down a little- I’m 5’10 and according to the online sizing recommendations, I needed a large... the large was considerably too big, so I had to send it back and get a medium. luckily, customer service was wonderful and the medium eventually arrived with minimal issues. Kudos to Grant at Velofix and Emily at Linus. Very happy with my purchase.
I use this for short rides around town - it's light, easy to manoever, and easy to attach a basket to.
I’ve had my bike about three weeks, and I love it. I don’t live near a dealer and had it shipped to my house. I found it easy to assemble, and it rides like a dream.
This is a wonderful bike you will not be disappointed. If you decide to order online read the Linus recommendations and follow them. Have a bike shop assemble, order the right size, etc. If you have questions contact Linus, they are very knowledgeable and eager to help. I had the bike shipped to my home, it will arrive in a large rectangular box that is easy to transport to your local bike shop.
Absolutely love the bike. Beautiful color and smooth ride. I wear a lot of dresses and its easy to ride with a bike. My picnic basket fits perfectly on the back.
