Instead of purchasing, you can also lease a new Bough Bike, based on a fixed monthly amount including maintenance and insurance. As of January 1, 2020, the Dutch government offers new tax breaks to strongly stimulate the lease of a bicycle or e-bike. The benefits apply to employees and employers but also to entrepreneurs. For more information about the lease options of a Bough Bike, you can contact Dick Schouten. 06-27621702 and firstname.lastname@example.org
The bike will be delivered to your home for free.
The delivery time of a Bough Bike is approximately 4 weeks. In case of high need we can sometimes make an exception. Please contact us for this. When your Bough Bike is ready, we will make an appointment to deliver the bike to your home.

The bike is made of solid oak wood. It can virtually handle all weather conditions. The wood will retain its strength, but will show a slight discoloration over time. We work with a protective oil finish on our frames. If you want to keep the original color, it’s advisable to renew the oil treatment on a regular basis (twice a year). A bottle of oil will be included with the purchase of your bike. The stainless steel components are treatment-free. If the wooden surface is damaged you can easily renovate it by slightly sanding the wood and than applying oil. For bigger repairs you can go to a bikeshop.
Yes, it is. You can ride your bike in the rain without a problem. If you’re planning on keeping your bike out all year long, we do advise you to treat your bike with oil quite regularly. Generally speaking treating it twice a year will suffice.
At this point the Bough Bike is available with 26 inch wheels. Because of the adjustable height the bike is suitable for people who are smaller than 1.80 m ( 5.11”) but als suitable for people over 1.80 (5.11”).
The Bough Bikes has two gears as standard that are incorporated in the rear wheel. This SRAM Automatix is a 2-speed hub that shifts automatically. No adjusters, no cables. It detects your speed and switches when you need it. The first gear is to start with and to climb small hills. The second gear is for fast cycling on flat roads. When you stop the pedals, the Bough Bike automatically shifts back to first gear.
The basic model weighs around 20 kg (44 pounds). The E-Bough weighs 25 kg (55 pounds). A bit more heavy than a regular bicycle. However, the ride on a Bough Bike is very smooth and light.
Yes, definitely. The wooden bike is examined by the TÜV Rheinland, which is a renowned international institute that puts new and old products to the test.
Because wood is a warm material. In appeal and sentiment alike. Wood is stronger. It’s less prone to deterioration than metal. Wood is flexible. It absorbs vibrations. Which causes a gliding cycling experience. Wood is sustainable. It’s an inherently green product from the earth which originates from CO2, sunlight and water. We harvest our wood in the French Jura where forests are preserved according to the Nature2000 regimen.
