los angeles-based bike company peace bicycles debut ‘the dreamer’, an concept for commuting on two wheels, combining the upright position and full protection of the elements found in a classic dutch-style urban commuter; and the comfort ride of a typical american beach cruiser. conceived as vintage style, fully-loaded comfort commuter bikes, the two designs – ‘step-thru’ and ‘straight-bar’ – come equipped with a standard 7-speed transmission, pot-hole friendly balloon tires and an upright-riding-position frame. in addition, a spring-loaded saddle and a riser handlebar adds to the already extremely comfortable ride.
‘the dreamer’ straight-bar features modern styling, up-right seating position, and comes fully equipped. a vintage-style string spoke guard adds that vintage look, and comes available in two classic bold colors.

‘the dreamer’ comes standard fully loaded with clothing protection accessories (fenders, chain guard, plastic spoke guard on step-thru or string vintage spoke guard on straight bar model), safety features such as battery-powered front and rear lights and utility parts like chrome-plated steel rear rack with spring clip, tool pouch hinges on the saddle.
the step-through version is modelled after a classic dutch bike
what makes ‘the dreamer’ sensitive to life in the urban environment is the bike guard standard found in each of the four bikes, which allow riders to get around in any type of clothing. whether you need to head to the office in a suit and tie, or are out for a relaxing weekend ride in a long sun dress, this component will let you show off your best outfit, without it getting caught in the spokes or chain, and keeping it clean while doing so.

the pedals, which also feature reflectors, have slip-resistant rubber pads for riding barefoot
‘the dreamer’ is currently seeking funding on kickstarter.
for those backing the project with a pledge of more than $1,299 USD, a ‘couples special’ offer will be available, allowing you to choose from any two bikes.
