People who don't have bicycles sometimes try to build their own by sawing their car in half or affixing an extra wheel to their unicycles. Obtain a traditionally built bicycle with today's Groupon: for $499 you get a Dutch Oma Fiets bike (a $900 value) from J.C. Lind Bike Co. on North Wells Street. This Groupon is also good for a year of service from J.C Lind, which includes adjustments and an annual tune-up. A tax of $48.65, not included in this Groupon, will be due when customers come to pick up their bike.
The Oma Fiets is the quintessential Dutch bike, a durable and reliable means of urban transportation no matter the weather conditions. The Oma comes complete with fenders, a rear luggage carrier, LED lights, a fully enclosed chain case, and a stand-alone propstand. The name Oma literally translates to grandma, and like grandma's lap, the bike has had the same comfortable design, fitted for both men and women, for more than a century. It's available in two sizes: 50 cm frame (fits most riders approximately 5'2"–5'8") and the 57 cm frame (fits most riders approximately 5'8"–6'2"). Bikes will be ordered from Holland and available for pick-up 10–12 weeks after the order date.
