WorkCycles are an Amsterdam-based company that distribute and make modern versions of traditional Dutch city bikes, together with transportation and cargo bikes. The bikes have hand-built frames and use the best components to make study bikes that will last.

Vital Fixies are a Dublin based company that specialises in selling fixie bikes.
