What memories will you create with
your dream bike...

You may have already experienced this...

There you are in the bike store, ready for a new bike. Which one are you going to choose?
So many brands, types and models, so many options. But none of them is exactly what you want.

Because the color is too dark, the frame is too small, the gears aren’t right.
Or you may want a modified handlebar, a wider saddle and different brakes.
There is something missing of wrong on every bike: you will always have to give in on something.

Custombuilt: your dream bike without compromise

The solution for every bicycle enthusiast: custom-built bicycles. Your personal dream bike tailored to your needs.
No more concessions: you choose everything yourself. Frame, drivetrain, saddle, brakes.
The best accessories to suit you. And in the color you want.

Do you prefer to drive through the woods or especially along the main track? Sporty or calmer?
Uphill or false flat? We put your bike together on who you are and how you ride.

This way you have your unique, personally assembled bicycle. A bicycle with character. A bike for life.

Imagine ...

Every person is different, everyone is different. Has different preferences, has a different physique. Has different wishes about the bike and also a different riding style. That's why custom built is so important. Every passionate cyclist deserves his own top bike, completely tailored to his needs.

Robbert R. | Santos founder

Take your dream bike out for a spin: incredible!

Everything is ready in our test center so that you can extensively test your dream bike. This way you are 100% sure of the composition. Your partner can also go on a test ride: we are happy to prepare a separate bicycle for him or her.

On a test drive, you thoroughly try out all parts: your own route or one that we have already pre-programmed on our GPS. We adjust the bike to your use, with optional extra panniers and weights. A suitable saddle and the right pedals.

At the Santos Test Center, we have the full range of Santos in the house. And also test bikes from other top brands such as Achille, Velo de Ville, Koga, Urban Arrow, and Brompton.

"With both sons on my Urban Arrow I rediscovered cycling pleasure"

As a young family with two children, you are obliged to do everything by car, Glynis experienced. Until she bought an electric cargo bike with her boyfriend. The Urban Arrow Family changed her family life.

- Glynis M.
"Amazing how quickly the breakdown with our Santos e-bike was solved from a great distance"

There you are, on a remote campsite in the South of France. With a faltering battery on a cycling holiday, and you're only halfway there. Monique and Will were there. "You won't get something like that fixed on 1-2-3," they feared. "But Jurgen resolved this surprisingly quickly."

- Will & Monique C.
"Great to be able to test my Velo De Ville for a whole day in my own region"

Ghislaine (67) lives in the beautiful, hilly Dworp. She had wanted an electric bicycle for years, but could it handle the tough slopes? There was only one way she could find out. By testing the e-bike on site. She did, all day long.

- Ghislaine L.
"On our Achielle we cycle with all our conveniences whistling to our bees"

For two years they commuted between their hives in Kontich and Sint-Katelijne-Waver, always by car. But that was not in line with their green vision. So beekeepers Joyce and Jan each bought an Achielle. Handy bikes that suit them completely. And with their bees.

- Joyce en Jan

"An electric bike. I thought, "Why not?" Based on the reviews, I arrived at Fietsen Jürgen, and I didn't complain for a second. On the contrary, Vanessa will guide you step by step until you get to the perfect match. And that match is here: my i:SY has been my fat friend since day one. Class matter. Keep up the good work."

I remember it well, you were looking for a strong bike that you could trust and for your wife (my namesake :-)) a nice trendy bike, so that you could enjoy together. It was instant love at first sight when I showed you the I:sy and explained it. Vanessa also did a test drive with the Emma of Achielle and that smile on her face when she came back spoke volumes. I found the match for both of you and that's what makes me happy! Thanks for this review, this pleases all 3 of us. Greetings Vanessa & Jurgen & Olivier

We are very satisfied with our electric e-bike from Santos. Never had a bike that bolted so well. Remarkably sturdy frame. Very good driving comfort. Great sitting position. 80 km cycled in the economical eco-mode at over 20 km/h. And all thanks to the intelligent and professionally practical approach and explanation of Jurgen Fietsen. Thank you Jurgen, Vanessa and Olivier.
