Velorbis Dannebrog for Sale

A few days ago, I happened upon an outdated listing for a used Velorbis Dannebrog. Since the bike appeared to have never sold, I contacted the seller to see if the bike is still available. Turns out, that they are still trying to sell this bike. While I would love to get my hands on this gorgeous ride, the sellers are in Connecticut and are having difficulty with getting the bicycle shipped.

You can read their review of the bike through the link as well
As my own sort of PSA (and to prevent Sam from strangling me in my attempts to figure out how I can get it back here to Colorado), I thought I would put this out there for anyone in the northeast who is in search of this bike and would be able to get to the Fairfield, CT area to pick it up. The owner is "entertaining offers" (as he shared with me) starting at $1,000 (really a good deal for the Dannebrog). You can see their original images on the old e-Bay listing here, where you can also contact the seller with questions at the bottom of the listing.

Hopefully, there's someone in their area who can truly appreciate this bike and will give it a good home. Please feel free to pass this along to anyone you know who would be interested.

  1. I must say, that even though i'm not a huge fan of the English/Dutch bike, this is very nice. If it's anything like the Pashley, i'm sure it's solid and smooth (while being substantial, if you know what i mean). No strangling : )

  2. Just a note: I saw this posting back in May and bought this bike for my wife for Mother's Day. She rides it to the market, to work, to breakfast on the weekends. She loves it. I think she loves it more than she loves me. So, yes, it did go to a good home.

Word verification is on, but I've turned off the moderation portion in an attempt to make it easier for you to know that your comment has indeed made it through. We'll see how this goes, but I'm hopeful that this will help out and I'll try my best to weed through and remove spammers comments. Additionally, I recommend copying comments before hitting publish as the "blogger comment eater" seems to continue his snacking.
