‘Opafiets’ means ‘grandfather bike’ but this classic design is ridden by men and women of all ages in the Netherlands.

Very similar to the omafiets, but with a crossbar.

Originally the crossbar was used to strengthen the frame for use by men. Although today's step-through frames are strong enough for use by men and women, the concept of "men's" and "women's" bike frames persists.
