FLORALS / A LINUS BIKE GIVEAWAY!

we east side girls traveled west to visit linus bikes in venice beach. just off the abbot kinney strip and down a tiny garden path is a beach bungalow surrounded with bikes and full of beautifully made baskets, bells, and all sorts of other must haves to style your ride.

i really love the linus look! sleek and chic. reminiscent of the french bicycle design of the 50’s and 60’s. its with this spirit that the sweet people at linus let us take the bikes out on the town for an afternoon of flowers, farmers markets, and fresh juice. all day long I kept saying to myself that it doesn’t get better than this!

in keeping with the spring farmers market afternoon i filled the baskets with all sorts of spring flowers like daffodils, ranunculus, fritillaria. i also incorporated sweet pea tendrils and kale into this bouquet to give it that extra from the garden touch.

another great find of the day were the beautiful white forsythia branches which have a sweet fragrance. (i must have left a spring scented trail behind me.)

if in venice be sure to take stroll into linus. we heart them and their bikes! -kristen

    Sounds like a perfect afternoon :) lovely photos! Send some spring my way!

  • 2. Katie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 7:50 am

    Perfection! I don’t even have a bike, but I love renting them when I travel. I could ride “my” bike around a new city all day long.

  • 3. giulia  |  March 19th, 2013 at 7:53 am

    the photography here is simply perfect! beautiful:)

  • 4. rachel  |  March 19th, 2013 at 7:57 am

    i love the use of kale in the bouquet. i really love it.

  • 5. Katie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:02 am

    I love the Dutchi1 in cream! This would give me the motivation to bike to work instead of drive. So lovely!

  • 6. Courtney  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:03 am

    Love these bikes and the photos are beautiful! The Dutchi in Spring Green would be perfect for cruising around town!

  • 7. Jeweli  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:04 am

    I love the market bag!!

  • 8. Lori A Freeman  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:06 am

    These bikes are so dreamy, especially the Dutchi 1 in cream. Who doesn’t want to take their bike with a good book and picnic out to the park on a sunny day?

  • 9. Brandy  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:06 am

    A bike is smack dab at the top of my wishlist, the Roadster Classic in black gives me heart eyes!!

  • 10. Monica Schrock  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:07 am

    So pretty! The roadster classic in rosewood is my favorite :)

  • 11. Kristin  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:08 am

    Ah! I’ve been wanting a Linus bike for awhile – The Dutchi1 in green is swoon worthy – as is the rear wire basket! Ding! Ding! Cuteness coming through!!!!

  • 12. Laicie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:08 am

    LOVE the rear wire basket — and would love a brand new roadster classic to put it on! Either way, that basket might need to be mine.

  • 13. LARY@ Inspiration Nook  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:08 am

    FINGERS CROSSED! I love the Dutchi in cream. Simply beautiful :)

  • 14. lauren  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:08 am

    eeeeep! would love a bike… i’ve missed riding around houston since my bike got nabbed last year. (now have garage to keep it safe). anywho, favorite accessory would be the nantucket pannier (and the market sac, to boot). fingers crossed.

  • 15. Rachel  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:08 am

    My favorite basket is the Nantucket Tuckernut!

    Also – I would love to win the Roadster Classic for my husband’s upcoming birthday! He really wants a new bike and I haven’t found one nearly this cool yet!

  • 16. Sarah  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:09 am

    My bike (my way to work) was stolen!!! It made me sad, but the Roadster Classic in cream or rosewood would make me so happy!!! I would have to get the wire rear basket to go with it…Thanks for this chance!

  • 17. Christa  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:09 am

    Ahh, spring! What an inspiring layout with the flowers and the market. I have been saving up for a Linus bike — love the dutchi 1 style in cream. I’d accessorize with that cool headlamp and rear wire baskets in teal. While it’s dreamy in your California setting, it’s the perfect New England bike, too. I’ll be riding in style through the Cambridge, MA bike lanes if you pick me. Thanks, Bri.

  • 18. bethany  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:09 am

    The Mixte 3 in cream is beautiful and slightly vintage! I’m moving into the city this summer and need a bike before-hand so i can really take advantage of the great weather and summer activities… even when commuting (whether its to the beach, street fests, the local deli or any other place i can get to without compromising for the train.)

    thanks for introducing everyone to this site! just what i’ve been looking for.

  • 19. Ana  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:10 am

    OOOOH the Dutchi 1 in cream :))

  • 20. brookstar  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:10 am

    I am totally looking for a new bike. The one I have now barely has brakes and has been to Burning Man twice, coming home a bit shabbier and dustier each time. My favourite is the Roaster Classic in small – I’m excited they have smaller bikes for petite girls!

  • 21. Becky  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:10 am

    Oh goodness. I love the cream Dutchi 1. The Rosewood Roadster isn’t bad either…

    I’ve been shopping around for bikes, and haven’t found anything perfect yet. Having this newbie would be a sweet way to ring in my fresh move to Austin as a new, frugal freelancer. Someone is going to be a lucky lady (or gent).

  • 22. Rachel  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:10 am

    I want the basil bottle basket!!! would be perfect for the farmers market!

  • 23. Debbie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:11 am

    I’ve been dying to upgrade my bike for months! The cream colored mixte 8 is such a beautiful bike, and would be perfect for my daily Chicago commute! Linus makes such stylish and high quality bikes.

    http://www.linusbike.com/models/mixte-8/

  • 24. Andrea Zamboras  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:12 am

    Oh my goodness!! I live in Austin and it’s bike town, USA! I love the Roadster classic in cream… With a basket of course. Great prices too!

  • 25. Ilenia  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:12 am

    the little rear wire basket is just so cute, it looks pretty but also very comfortable to use on a daily basis and the roadster classic is the perfect bike for brooklyn! thanks for the giveaway.

  • 26. Samantha Simmons  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:13 am

    As a Chicago city girl I have been itching to get a bike for the last 6 years that I have lived here! I’ve yet to find something that suited my style though until I saw these beautiful gems. Sadly out of my price range, I can daydream (or cross my fingers to win!).

    I’d get the cream Roadster, put on some gold glitter tape in stripes around parts of the frame and daydream about that basil yellow basket and apple green bike saddle!. *swoon*

  • 27. Anna Liesemeyer  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:14 am

    Oo the photos are amazing.
    Would definately go for the Dutchi in green.
    My high school bike doesn’t quite cut it anymore;)

  • 28. Yvonne  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:14 am

    Oh what fun!!! I ride by Linus bikes everyday on my beach cruiser to work. I have always wanted one of there bikes. They are tres chic. I love the Dutchi 3 Limited Edition!!!!

  • 29. Errol o'falahee  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:15 am

    The dutchi with a Nantucket basket would be a dream to ride to farmers market!

  • 30. Sara Kay  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:15 am

    Holy lovely photos and beautiful bikes! I don’t drive (my low vision can’t be corrected to pass the vision test), so a bike would be perfect for this gal! I’ve been wanting one for a long time, and that Dutchi1 just stole a little piece of my heart…!

  • 31. michelle  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:16 am

    SQEEEEEE!!! I love the Dutchi 1 in Spring. With the adjustable rear rack with the market bags I would be the talk of the farmer’s markets :) Fingers crossed!

  • 32. Heather Marie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:16 am

    I adore the Dutchi 1 in cream, would be a great 30th birthday gift (on the 23!!) to ride around sunny san diego in the summertime with a cute little basket to carry all my beach/farmers market/festival gear!

  • 33. caroline  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:19 am

    I love the style of the Dutchi 1 because it’s elegant and designed, but still practical. The copper bell is a perfect accessory for the cream bike, and it adds to my current copper/bronze obsession!

  • 34. Caroline Cutshall  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:21 am

    I’m a Dutch 1 girl in green kindofagal. As a kid, my grandma would take us on bike rides to go get ice cream, and this summer, I’m keeping the tradition going when she comes to visit!

  • 35. Anonymous  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:21 am

    I absolutely love the Roadster Classic in rosewood! This makes me so excited for Spring!

  • 36. Bree McCool  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:21 am

    Im so glad you did a post with Linus! I go in there nearly every weekend and stare at the beauty that the MIXTE3 Limited Edition…THAT HEAD LAMP! I die. I finally got a used bike a few weeks ago and it completely broke apart on me. I will use this EVERY DAY, Id be so completely stoked! ;)

  • 37. Vanessa  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:21 am

    These are the perfect LA bike for a ride along the strand. I love the Dutchi 1 in spring!

  • 38. Tracey  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:21 am

    Love this post – the styling, everything is gorgeous. My favorite practical accessory is the head lamp and favorite splurge would be the child seat. I would love to take my 2.5 year old on rides through the neighborhood this summer!

  • 39. Mace  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:21 am

    The dutchi bike in spring would absolutely rock! My bike is ancient and basically crunches when I pedal. It’s time for a new one to say the least especially if it was as cute as that one!

  • 40. sara niedablski  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:23 am

    Oh my gosh! This give away came at the perfect time! I recently had a bike stollen when I left it outside of my office (even though it was locked up!). Desperately seeking a cool new urban bike to commute to and from school/work. I live in Albuquerque, New Mexico – an incredibly bike friendly city. I would love to be able to cruise around this summer in a brand new bike! I had been looking at Public Bikes in San Francisco to get the Euro look I want in a bike, but these Linus bikes are AMAZING! I have never heard of this company before, and now I’m completely smitten! Please please consider me for this give away – I have my little heart set on the Dover 1 model in grey. Really really beautiful design :)
    -Sara

  • 41. Kayla  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:23 am

    ALLof it is amazing! I love the rear wire basket, it’s perfect for Saturday farmers market. I could only dream of winning a bike like this!

  • 42. Meghan  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:24 am

    honestly, my favorite product is the Dutchi 1! the cream is too good, and I’m in desperate need of a new bike!

  • 43. emily O  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:24 am

    The Roadster Classic in so lovely! I’ve been saying for ages that I would like to bike to work… but I just haven’t ever found a bike- would love this!

  • 44. Royale Alexandra  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:25 am

    Dutch 1 in cream. So cute! **ring ring**

  • 45. Daisy  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:25 am

    Lovely post! I would definitely need a oopsmark wine holder to go with my new bike.

    Love the Roadster Classic in black, hope I win!

  • 46. christine o'connell  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:25 am

    I’ve been eyeing the Linus Dutchi 1 bike in cream for quite some time. Living in Chicago without a car for 7 years means that getting from place to place isn’t always the easiest. Winning this bike would be a big game changer, plus they’re so perfectly made!

  • 47. Maria Polton  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:25 am

    Good morning! What a great contest. I would absolutely love to win this bike.. considering I do not have one and spring is hopefully right around the corner (I live in Iowa :-/) and I would loveee to break the warm weather in with a lovely bike ride.

    My favorite product was the “The Near Wire Basket” in teal. Even though I do not have a bike I’m contemplating buying it just for an accessory around the house!

    My favorite bike would be the Dutchi 1. It reminds me of Amsterdam!

    Thanks again for the opportunity! :)

    xx– Maria.

  • 48. Jordan  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:25 am

    I really love love love the roadster dutchi 1 in cream! It’s so beautiful and classic and I could really use it for my commute to work!

  • 49. Hanna [excelsior lady]  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:26 am

    Oh my, the Nantucket Tuckernuck Tapered basket is so beautiful! Makes me wanna put fresh flowers in it for sure. This would be perfect for biking around West LA!

  • 50. Danica  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:26 am

    This is too good to be true! I live in Davis, which means bikes on bikes on bikes, and I’ve been pedaling on my cruiser’s last leg for awhile now. A new bike, especially a Linus one, would be a dream to ride. As for a favorite product, I’m now eyeing that teal rear wire basket—I’ve only ever seen them in white or black, so that would be perfect for standing out in Davis’s sea of bikes!

  • 51. Samantha @ The Umbrella Brand  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:26 am

    The Roadster Classic is { PERFECT } for a ride along Newport’s Ocean Drive this summer! I love, love, love the color.

  • 52. lindsey  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:26 am

    Choosing a bike is hard! I’m going with the Mixte 3 in sky blue because I’m short and LOVE COLOR!

  • 53. Melissa  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:26 am

    It’s so hard to pick just one beautiful thing among so many! My heart skips a beat at the sight of the spring green Dutchi. I can imagine many trips to the farmer’s market with that gorgeous set of wheels. Green veggies to match a green bike!

  • 54. Cate  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:27 am

    I love these bikes! So cute!! My favorite is the cream dutchi 1!

  • 55. Trish  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:27 am

    I’ve been meaning to replace my beach cruiser with a more practical bike since I’ve moved to DTLA. The Dutchi 1 in Cream with adjustable rear rack and market bag would be perfect to ride around the city!

  • 56. Lorie Ann  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:27 am

    I live in Minneapolis and don’t have a bike :$ oh oh i really need the Dutch1 in cream and the nantucket adult lightship tapered basket :)

  • 57. Sara  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:27 am

    I love the Dutchi bike in cream! So beautiful, so perfect for LA. The Peterboro farmers basket would go perfectly with it and make it the best summer ride! Love it! Great giveaway!

  • 58. Celi Merchant  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:27 am

    Love the office bag! If I had a bike to put it on, it would be perfect for pedaling to work with all my things.

  • 59. Julia Stotz  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:27 am

    I love the Duchi 1 in cream. It is so classic. As a photographer, I picture cruising around town scouting locations and having a basket of farmers market snacks and flowers by my side.

  • 60. Jenn  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:27 am

    Wow! That Dutchi 1 bike in green is absolutely stunning! That would be so fun to ride around in Piedmont Park and having a picnic. Gotta love an Atlanta Spring!

  • 61. Eva  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:28 am

    I love the rear wire baksets…SO CUTE! The bike I would choose is the Dutchi 1 in cream. I would definitely ride the bike to work everyday and to the farmer’s market every weekend. Oh, the possibilities!

  • 62. allie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:28 am

    I have been wanting a bike for the last 12 months – a Boston native (but California gal at heart), hoping to ride it to & fro in the spring & summer months!

    I’m loving the Roadster Classic – reminds me of my parents!

    Fingers crossed!
    Allie at alliewears.com

  • 63. Ashley  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:28 am

    Oh I have been lusting after Linus bikes for far too long! I love the Roadster Classic in Cream!

  • 64. stephanie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:29 am

    I am so wishing I could be Bri in Paris right now. I miss it so much and am saving up money to go back, hopefully soon! It would be SO amazing to ride the dutchi 1 bike in cream around town to work and enjoy sunny days. The Nantucket baskets are so cute to ride around to farmers markets as well- if only I could be a Parisian girl!

  • 65. Chrissy  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:29 am

    The Lil Dutchi is my favorite…childhood memories bought back to life. Would LOVE to see my daughter riding one of them. Might just be the birthday present idea I was searching for. :)

  • 66. Betsy  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:29 am

    I love these bikes ive been wanting to purchase one from their site for the longest time my favorite is the roadster classic in the cream color I love the photos so springy!! :)

  • 67. Jenn  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:29 am

    This post is amazing! I’ve been dreaming of a new bike since last spring! The Mixte 3 in sky blue is beyond beautiful, but any of the Linus bikes would be a dream to ride around the lake on warm days, make my weekly haul to and from the farmers market, ride in style to work…the list goes on and on! Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway Bri!

  • 68. Jen Clarke  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:29 am

    i would adore the roadster classic with the rear wire basket! it would be perfect for me to pick up my groceries here in SF, since i don’t have a car. it would also be fantastic for my short commute to work in downtown sf. i could ditch muni and have a nice bike ride into work! thanks for your consideration! :)

  • 69. Alyssa  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:30 am

    I LOVE the Roadster Classic in Cream. So Beautiful. So simple.

  • 70. Kimberly  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:30 am

    I l-o-v-e the Dutchi 1 in cream and would love to win it. Pick me! Pick me please! ;)

  • 71. Meredith  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:31 am

    So pretty!!! Makes me want farmers market weather NOW! I can see myself on a Dutchi 1 in green!!

  • 72. Arianna  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:31 am

    I heart the Nantucket Adult Lightship Tapered basket!It would be a great item to store all the great goodies you find at your local farmers market :)

  • 73. Caitlin  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:31 am

    My husband and I just recently moved to Santa Monica from the east coast! I would love to have this bike to explore our new surroundings:) I really like the Dutchi 1 in green. Regardless I will be making a trip to Linus to check it out. Thank you!

  • 74. Meghan  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:31 am

    The Mixte 3 is so cute! I already have a beach cruiser (an Elvis themed one at that…) but it’s so heavy. I’d love a new bike that’s lighter and easier to get around, and also not too big for me. My Elvis is about 6 inches too tall and with my clumsiness there have been some pretty embarrassing moments trying to get on and off.

    If I won, I’d love the roadster in cream, and I’d probably have to purchase a cute basket for it too!

  • 75. Mina  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:32 am

    I have been on the craigs list GRIND for a bike!!! the dutchi 1 is my dream bike!!

  • 76. Rebeca  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:32 am

    I want the Dutch 1 in cream! I sort of forgot how to ride a bike (even though everyone says one never forgets, i did). Getting a brand new bike would be the perfect motivation to get off my tush and gain that confidence back.

  • 77. Megan  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:32 am

    My heart just skipped a beat when I saw this on instagram! I love the cream Dutchi bike with the rear wire basket. I love how timeless it looks. I’ve wanted my own bike my whole life!! I’m so excited to ride around to the local horses and pick wildflowers where I live. I can imagine wearing my Toms booty wedges and a cream lace dress with a yellow flower in my hair. Wow thanks :)

  • 78. Brandy  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:32 am

    Your Parisian bike adventure sounds like a slice of heaven! I love the dutchi1, so cute with that perfect vintage feel. The Nantucket adult lightship tapered basket is to die for too! How cute for riding around town and gathering flowers or produce from the local farmers market :)

  • 79. Christa Tubach  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:33 am

    I love love love the roadster since I’m moving to Philly in the summer, and it would look adorable with the basil bottle rear basket in teal :D!

  • 80. Emily  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:33 am

    The green dutchi is an absolute dream!

  • 81. Trisha Adams  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:34 am

    The Roadster Classic is pretty much bike perfection. Especially with adding a rear rack to it! And it would be wonderful considering my husband’s only bike was recently damaged beyond repair. :( We live downtown and try to bike everywhere as much as we can.

    Thanks for posting this contest! I’m glad I know about this bike company, I love all their bikes and accessories!

  • 82. Allison  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:34 am

    Love the Dutch1 in cream – plenty of room to strap on baskets for all my grocery shopping! =)

  • 83. Christine  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:35 am

    Please have some contests open to Canadians! I can’t stand it! I’m so jealous of US residents!

  • 84. Karen Stretch  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:35 am

    I really like the Dutchi in cream – it’s a beautiful, classic bike. My current bike is on it’s last leg, but my 11-year-old terrier (who is too old to go for long walks now) loves to get into her bike basket and go for a ride. I know she’d love to cruise around town in this beauty!

  • 85. Ruthie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:35 am

    The Basil Bottle Rear Basket (in yellow!) is a dream! And would go oh so nice with the green Dutchi 1. I don’t own a car, so biking with a basket to Trader Joe’s for groceries would be the BEST! Thanks!

  • 86. Jenny  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:35 am

    So much to love on their site, but I would love a Nantucket tapered basket and a brass bell for the Roadster!

  • 87. Leilani  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:35 am

    The Dutchi 1 in Cream is perfection. It would be a perfect ride to ring in the fast approaching warmer days!

  • 88. Theresa Delano  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:35 am

    So cute! The Dutchi 1 in cream is my favorite. I would love to dress it up with so many accessories for spring, summer and fall bike rides.
    I would be dressing it up with “THE DELANO BASKET”… conveniently my last name!

  • 89. Erica W  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:35 am

    WOW! I cannot believe LINUS is the giveaway item! This is too good to be true, I have had my eye of the Rosewood Roaster for longer than I can imagine; so clearly, the roaster is by far my fav. It is classy and classic and that frame is flawlessly gorgeous! I have been waiting to get a bike until I moved down into the flat part of my little town in San Diego – now that I have finally made the move just a bike ride away from the beach, farmer’s markets, my favorite craft store and coffee shop it is time to put my car away and bring a Linus out to play!

  • 90. nichole  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:36 am

    these bikes are stunners!the roadster classic is cream is a dream!

  • 91. Leslie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:36 am

    The dutchi 1 is perfection for spring <3

  • 92. Molly Oberstar  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:36 am

    My favorite basket is the Nantucket Adult Lightship Tapered. I already have it, and it would look so lovely attached to the Dutchi 1 (the model I’d love to be entered for). The perfect pair!!

  • 93. Amy  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:36 am

    Hi! I have been wanting a new since moving to Montreal about a year ago and never found the perfect match! The Dutchi 1 seems like the perfect city bike, just in time for spring :)
    Great giveaway idea!

  • 94. Rachel Jang  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:36 am

    I’m a college freshman now and planning to live off-campus starting this summer. I wanted a bike since beginning of college…looking at all the thrift/antique shops around town, but my legs weren’t long enough for the most models (Asian problem), sigh. But the Dutchi1 looks PERFECT. (spring green) And it would be awesome to ride down the the street on it. Also the wire rear basket is beautiful.
    I’ve never had a bike to call my own, but this would be my dream come true–first one to be achieved as a college student!

  • 95. Kyla  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:37 am

    LOVE THIS I’ve been eyeing a new bike for awhile my bike broke awhile ago and would love a new buddy to run errands with! love the dutchi 1 in cream!

  • 96. Pakou  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:37 am

    I have been dreaming of a bike to ride since I was a little girl. Last summer, I found a used one for $20 at a garage sale but it now has a broken tire. The Dutchi 8 in cream is my favorite on the site; however, I would definitely choose the Dutchi 1 in Spring if I’m the lucky one.

  • 97. Morgan  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:37 am

    I love the Nantucket Adult Lightship Tapered Basket.. so adorable! Also, love the Dutchi 1 in Cream! <3

  • 98. Katie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:38 am

    Omigosh! The green Dutchi–I swoon, I die. It’s gorgeous. I would feel like the protagonist in a French novel heading to market on that lovely.

    As it is, I head to market on foot these days. My bike was stolen last fall and, what with Chicago winters and spending all my money on buying and diy-renovating a house, I haven’t been able to replace it. It’s been hoofing it and heeling it for me–but goodness, would I love to tool around on this!

    (I might even make some saddlebags for it. I was recently given a roll of vintage leather, and I couldn’t imagine a better use… Ooh, fingers are crossed!)

  • 99. Kate  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:38 am

    Perfect timing on this contest! My guy just got a job near Santa Barbara, which would be the perfect place to ride the bike I don’t currently have! My fave is the Dutchi 3 in Sage + Basil Rear Basket in Orange, since those are my signature colors for my business/blog :)

  • 100. Katherine Sanchez  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:39 am

    The Roadster 8 is my absolute favorite! It is such a perfect bike for someone who lives in a city. I live in Downtown Los Angeles and this bike is perfect to commute in and carry stuff on with the rear rack.

    It would be a dream to win one of the bikes featured. I can’t afford my own bike and I commute everyday to work in my boyfriends bike. Im 5’1 and his bike is a 56″ now that is way to tall for me. Winning this would be amazing.

    xo,
    Kat

  • 101. Hannah  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:39 am

    I really like the Mixte 8 model in sage from the Linus website. 8 speeds, sage color, clean lines, what’s not to love? Thanks for the giveaway!

  • 102. Christine  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:39 am

    I love the Basil Bottle Rear Basket to match the Cream Roadster Classic!

    This is the perfect bike for me to zip around San Francisco. I’ve been looking into bikes for a while now and these look amazing.

  • 103. sarah  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:40 am

    I have always wanted a cruzer! I spend all my bike riding hours on a road bike because I commute a long way. Id love to have a bike that was just for FUN stuff! Those baskets rule. I’d be stoked on the Delano!

  • 104. Ashley  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:40 am

    The Dutchi1 is ADORABLE! Perfect for farmers markets and strolls in the summer afternoons.

  • 105. herbst-kind  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:40 am

    ooooh das sind so viele schöne sachen, eine wirklich schwere entscheidung, aber ich wollte schon immer einen Korb für so ein wunderschönes bike, also wähle ich den NANTUCKET ADULT LIGHTSHIP TAPERED

  • 106. Rhonda  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:40 am

    I like to ride my bike to and from the store, so the rear wire basket would be very practical for me! More cargo room = less things I have to drive to the store for = happy me and happy planet!

  • 107. tess  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:40 am

    I love the Roadster Calssic in Cream (size small) and the Nantucket Pannier Tuckernuck basket, so dreamy! My husband got a new bike from his groomsman this past November and I would love to be able to join him on his cycling adventures on a bike that actual fits me, Im quite short and it makes for an uncomfortable and sometimes scary ride. Thanks for this opportunity! xo

  • 108. Jen  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:40 am

    I love these bikes! I haven’t owned one in 10 years, I especially love the dutchi 3 in marine! That blue is just perfect.

  • 109. Lynne  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:41 am

    I am really wishing to win this! I love the green dutchi 1 with a basket!!!! Pick me!

  • 110. Natalie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:41 am

    Loving the Roadster Classic in cream or the emerald color you have displayed, SO in right now! Such an inspiring site!

  • 111. Michelle Pimm  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:41 am

    Make this girls dream of heading to her local market in oxford shoes, a floral dress, a woven hat and that Kelly green Dutchi 1! It’s what every girl dreams of riding here in Austin. All she needs is a basket with florals. Perfection.

  • 112. Stacey  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:41 am

    Love the dutchi 1 and all the fun accessories!

  • 113. Kit  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:42 am

    I see an adorable girl riding around Highland Park, Los Angeles on the Roadster Classic model, and am always instantly jealous–regardless of how many times I see her. I want to be in her absurdly chic club!

  • 114. marissa hermanson  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:42 am

    Love the rear wire basket in blue. Just what I need to put my farmers market produce in on my ride back from the market.

    I just moved to Richmond, which is a very bikeable town. I’d love to be able to ride this bike to work and take it for pleasure cruises, exploring my new city.

    xo, marissa

  • 115. Vanessa T.  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:42 am

    I’ve always dreamt of a cherry red bike to ride on my college campus! Despite the numerous hills and stairs, I think I’d enjoy the (treacherous) ride on a red Dutchi 3. So dreamy! And add a straw basket, it’ll be like riding a unicorn! AHHHHHHH!!!

  • 116. tamar  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:43 am

    i love the Dutchi 1 in green! that is the bike i have been dreaming about and would love to win it. it would make my summer just perfect!
    ps. i am in LOVE with your living room!

  • 117. Chrystal  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:43 am

    I really like the Linus Market Bag, would be great for our many Portland farmers markets! Would look lovely on the Roadster Classic, and so would I :)
    Thank you for the opportunity, and the wonderful blog!

  • 118. Natalie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:43 am

    love love these bikes! I am loving the Dutchi1 in cream with the lovely NANTUCKET ADULT LIGHTSHIP basket for all of my goodies.

  • 119. Lindsay Rondo  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:43 am

    Love the classic roadster in cream! Love them wire baskets in their bright colors! How fun!

  • 120. Olivia  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:43 am

    The Dutchi 1 in green combined with the Nantucket Adult Lightship Tapered Basket would allow me to get to work quickly (and environmentally friendly) without an enormous backpack or briefcase on my back. It would also carry my bread, cheese and strawberries to Golden Gate Park in San Francisco on the weekends and let me catch some exercise along the way. I need this combo!

  • 121. Christine  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:44 am

    ahh please pick me! My bike is on it’s last leg and I would love love love the Dutch 1 in cream! eek! too perfect! I also love all the accessories on the site. the market bag… the wine holder… I love them all :o

  • 122. Anonymous  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:44 am

    Dreaming of summer, riding around Portland with that cream&black Roadster! I’m currently bike shopping and a Linus is definitely at the top of my list. Such classics!

  • 123. Sarah  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:44 am

    The roadster classic in rosewood…it’s so lovely! I would love the chance to toss on one of their lemon yellow basil bottle rear baskets on and go on a floral adventure of my own.

    Whoever wins this one will be so lucky! I hope its me :) Thanks Bri, you’re giveaways are always great and the blog photos are always inspiring and romantic.

  • 124. Abby  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:44 am

    Dreaming of summer, riding around Portland with that cream&black Roadster! I’m currently bike shopping and a Linus is definitely at the top of my list. Such classics!

  • 125. Jacquelyn  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:44 am

    My favorite item in the Linus shop is definitely the dutchi1 bike! I’ve been wanting a bike just like this for ages. I love the green color and spending time on a bike, just pedaling away! :)

  • 126. Janell  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:45 am

    The Dutchi is just absolutely sleek and chic and adorable. Xo.

  • 127. o!suzanna  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:45 am

    Oh My! I am head over heals for the Dutch 3 in Sage, oooh la la! And, the Nantucket basket would look adorable with it. Oh, pick me, pick me!

  • 128. MFree  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:45 am

    I love the lil Dutchi for my soon to be bike rider. But I could totally use a new bike myself. I cruise around HLP in an old Peugeot that I got at a thrift store in San Francisco for 10$.

  • 129. Emma  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:46 am

    I would love to spend my days biking around the lakes in Minneapolis on the cream Dutchi 1 with a basket full of flowers or picnic goods!

  • 130. Jen T,  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:46 am

    That adorable dutchi 1 in cream (with the basil bottle rear basket attached) would make last minute rides to the market so fun. :)

  • 131. Robin Plemmons  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:47 am

    I have been day dreaming of cruising on a basketed bike to the local market! I’d love the Dutch in spring green with a colorful basil basket. I could stuff it with baguettes & flowers & champagne & a baby (just kidding). Loving the kid bikes too. Thanks for the chance!

  • 132. Jennifer LIttle  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:47 am

    I’d love the Dutchi 3 in cream and the rear wire basket. I’m in need a bike since I live in Fort Collins, Colorado, the bike riding capital of the USA! Cheers!

  • 133. Melanie Abrantes  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:48 am

    Dutchi 1! I love linus bikes! I remember when Philip Lim used them in his spring collection. I was head over heels for them and have been wanting one since! I would cruise around highland park to go to my favorite coffee shop :)

  • 134. Nichole  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:48 am

    They are so beautiful!! I’d have to say the wine holder ;) and the nantucket cisco tapered basket is adorable!
    I’m moving to Germany from Florida, so this would be so perfect and so ideal! I would pay to have this shipped from my house to where I’m heading. It would be a blessing! Thanks so much for the opportunity Bri! Love your blog, heck love your life!! <3

  • 135. Carley  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:49 am

    The DesignLoveFest team rocks & what more could an LA newbie from Maine ask for on her 25th birthday – March 31 ;) ?

    ~ Roadster Classic in Rosewood w/ the rear wire basket ~

    After an amazing road trip across the country I lucked out finding a new job in LA with a short commute. Now, just one thing is missing… the bike to get to work. (Sold my old Jeep to take my boyfriend’s VW on the cross-country adventure & LA public trans. is a little eh, iffy)

    Thanks for the fun opportunity!

    Cheers,
    Carley

    P.S. How amazing are those Crane hand painted bells too?!

  • 136. Vanessa  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:50 am

    The Nutcase Helmet is great! Safety + Style. I’m jonesing to join the Angelino bike community. What a better way to experience Venice/Silverlake/etc

  • 137. cerrissa  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:50 am

    I’ll take the cream dutchi1 please!! and a rear wire basket to pick up baguettes a plenty at the market :)

  • 138. Sara K-B  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:51 am

    the Linus bike bell in alloy silver would be a perfect addition to the roadster classic in cream! That way I could travel with a tinkling sound of joy wherever I went.

  • 139. Frances  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:51 am

    The Roadster Classic in White!! Love it. Been wanting to buy a bike for a while! :)

  • 140. emily  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:52 am

    Roadster Classic in cream with a copper bell?! Lerve. This would definitely be awesome to conquer the rolling hills of Austin. Congrats to whoever wins this beauty!!

  • 141. Margaret  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:54 am

    I’ve been wanting a cute bike for awhile! The Roadster Classic pretty please. I can already imagine the glorious summertime bike rides!

  • 142. Jane  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:54 am

    Gorgeous bikes! And I just adore “the pouch” bag! Perfect for the duchi bike, which I totally need right now. The kids have newer bikes but mom can’t afford one.

  • 143. Becca Stahl  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:54 am

    I’ve been desperately craving some summertime cheer as we continue to freeze here in Chicago. Dreaming about pairing the Dutchi 1 with the market bag reminds me that the thaw is coming soon, and I can look forward to happy days filling the bag with green market treats and riding down lakeshore drive being grateful for the wind – instead of hiding from it! I’d love to be riding in style this summer, thanks for sharing this giveaway!

  • 144. kellen  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:55 am

    I REALLY love the Dutch 1 in Creme! I’ve been dying for a bike for a really long time. Might have to invest even if I don’t win.

    *fingers crossed*

    XO

  • 145. Patria  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:56 am

    I love the The Roadster 8!! I would ride my bike to the market every weekend if I had one. Especially in summer :) Hope I win!

  • 146. Alicia  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:56 am

    Oh my gosh! I absolutely LOVE that Dutchi1. What a perfect bike for quick rides to the market! I also love the rear wire baskets! I would love this bike! So fun!

  • 147. Tim  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:57 am

    This would be a great gift for my girlfriend. I would like to see her cruising around on the roadster 8. She’s a babe and deserves it.

  • 148. lea  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:57 am

    i’ve been contemplating getting a bike for so long and these are perfect – I love the Dutchi 1 in green !

  • 149. Mary Beth  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:57 am

    I love the dutchi 1 in spring. Nice pop of color. I’ve been wanting a bike for so long. Great giveaway! Love all their other products.

  • 150. Christine  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:58 am

    I just moved to New York City and as much as I love the subway, I would LOVE to start biking around this city once the sun comes out and the snow stops falling! My best friend just moved to Brooklyn and while we’re not too far away in physical distance–about a 15-minute bike ride–because of complicated subway lines, it’s a 45-minute public transport trek whenever we want to grab coffee or make dinner or borrow each other’s clothes! I would LOVE the Dutchi 1 in Marine to ride around the Lower East Side, over to my friend in Williamsburg, and up to work in Midtown :)

  • 151. Carrie Brantley  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:58 am

    I love the wire baskets with the market bag!!! So delish!!!

  • 152. Laura  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:58 am

    I love the Linus bike line and have been itching to get one. I think my dream Linus bike would be either the Mixte 8 in green or the Roadster 8 in blue. I use my bike all the time in the warm weather but have been using a mountain bike. I’d so love to transition to more of a city bike.

  • 153. Jaime  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:59 am

    I really like these bikes they look so comfortable and classic at the same time my favorite out off all of them is the mixte 3 in color skyblue, they are just amazing I would love to win one of your bikes !!!!

  • 154. tate  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:01 am

    oh man, I had no idea these came in small sizes for us shorties! I LOVE the rosewood roadster, it is soo adorable! I can only imagine all the adventures I could take this summer!

  • 155. Melanie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:01 am

    both of those bikes are gorgeous and I would love you own either one! Especially with spring right around the corner, I can imagine myself riding under the cherry blossoms with my hair blowing in the wind and a cute little copper bell to ring!

  • 156. chrissypedia  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:01 am

    you’re such a doll! after reinventing myself with a healthy lifestyle in 2012, i’ve been ready to take charge in 2013. i’m dying to learn how to ride a bike, in the most stylish way, of course, this spring! nothing would make cruising LA as perfect as the Dutchi1 in spring green along with a delano basket! regardless, thank you bringing this bike company to my attention! and good luck to those win this fabulous bike!

  • 157. Liesel Wiscombe  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:01 am

    I love bikes! I have been needing a new bike! I love the Raodster Sport! Thanks for the giveaway and for being so inspiring!

  • 158. Lindsay Johnston  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:02 am

    I sold my car a year ago in order to pay loan payments. My cruiser bike became my main mode of transportation and it turned out to become my best friend as well! Riding is my therapy. Though pretty, my bike is way to heavy and slow for daily commuting. The cream roadster classic is so pretty and light and fast. It would surely become my cherry on top every single day.

  • 159. cara clara  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:03 am

    I am super bummed that only us people can enter. Irish people love your blog and bikes too!!!

  • 160. kortnee angel  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:04 am

    I would so rock the Dutchi 3 with the nantucket basket!
    After buying cheap used bikes off of Craiglist, one of these bad boys would be an absolute treat! heart!!

  • 161. Kris H  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:04 am

    Omg. What an amazing giveaway I would look so fabulous riding the roadster 8 in cream. It would be magical if I could win this and cruise with my dog in the basket.

  • 162. Sarah  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:04 am

    I love the rear wire basket in teal! What a great pop of color to add to any of their bikes! Really, really hoping I win the Dutchi 1 in spring. It’d be perfect for biking around Philly in the spring.

  • 163. Bri  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:04 am

    oh goodness me. i love the dutchi1 with a nice little peterboro farmers basket on the front! how cute. perfect for biking down to the market every week to pick up my fish and goat cheese popsicles!

  • 164. Kim  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:05 am

    I absolutely adore the mixte 3 in sky blue. :)

  • 165. Lauren  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:06 am

    I love love love the Dutchi1 bike in cream! We are moving to Chicago later this year, and I have been on the search for a good bike since we will be selling both our cars. This giveaway couldn’t have come at a better time since I have been researching on the web for the “best” bikes, and Linus is definitely at the top! I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I’m the lucky winner!

  • 166. Missy  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:06 am

    This is incredible. I wish I would have known about Linus when I was there two weeks ago. I live in OC and would love to add the Yepp Mini to one of these bikes! I can picture myself now taking my daughter to get fro yo in it! Thank you!

  • 167. Leah  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:07 am

    The rear wire basket would be perfect on the back of the roadster classic. Such beautiful styling in this post!

  • 168. Hilary  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:08 am

    gosh, there is no better feeling than a bike ride on a nice warm day. i am in love with the basil bottle rear basket in pastel green! don’t you think it would complement a cream Dutchi1 bicycle? i am REALLY crossing my fingers on this one. what an incredible giveaway.

  • 169. MCR  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:08 am

    I’ve been wanting these ever since I saw one in Venice. I tried to fix my dad’s old one to use but it was rusted sooo bad from a couple of Hurricanes that hit a few years ago. I can already see myself in Chicago with one of these <3 The Dutchi 1 in Cream and I would definitely get that Market Bag i n Navy! Come ooon Spring and Bikes!

  • 170. Maddy  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:09 am

    What a great bike shop! I love the look and love their Linus Market Bag! I can just imagine going for a picnic with the bag on the back of my bike. Would love to win this…considering my bike recently got stolen! Wa wa. Anywho, would like to win at Dutchi1 bike in Spring! Great giveaway.

  • 171. Tammy Warner-Wilson  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:10 am

    Oh, happy day! I’ve been dreaming of the cream Dutchi 1 for months. If this two-wheeled dame were mine, her name would be Delilah and she would transport me and my baby girl (and maybe even Hercules, our one-eyed pug) everywhere!

  • 172. Shadia  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:10 am

    The wire rear basket is adorable! Love these bikes. Hope to ride one soon :) xx

  • 173. Mandy McDonald  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:10 am

    I LOVE the Dutchi1 Bike, the Tuckernuck Tapered Basket & the Side Strike Brass Bell. I would be a very happy girl if I won! Thank you for the chance!

  • 174. Nicole Daniels  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:11 am

    Oh my goodness, the Dutchi 1 in cream is my dream bike! I love everything in the Linus shop but I would have to buy the Rear Wire Basket to add to it! These photos are so beautiful! I’d have to ride around all day with flowers and veggies in the basket like this ;)

  • 175. Katie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:11 am

    I have been looking for a bike for the past few months for the warm weather coming up! I live in NYC and can’t spend another spring or summer missing the nice weather while riding to work on the subway!

    I love the roadster classic in black- and I would have to buy the sac to tote all of my things! It is so cute and functional! Perfect for a NYC life on the go. :)

  • 176. Bre  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:11 am

    I just sold my mountain bike, so I’m on the hunt for a new bicycle! I love the Roadster in cream. Perfect for a summer ride to the Farmer’s Market!

  • 177. Anonymous  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:11 am

    Love it all! I’d say the dutchi 1 in cream is my favorite. It’s all so lovely!

  • 178. Jordan  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:12 am

    I love the Petersboro Farmer’s basket! It would be so perfect for bringing back purchases from our local farmer’s market! I would so love to win!!! I’d definitely pick the Dutchi 1 in green!

  • 179. robin pulsifer  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:12 am

    i LOVE the dutchi 1 bike in cream and the rear wire basket for an accessory. i live on cape cod and the basket reminds me of clam baskets. so….

  • 180. Katelyn  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:13 am

    As a young design student headed to NYC for an internship, I have been looking for a great way to get around. I have never lived in the big city and, not only would this save me precious money spent on subway fare, but it’s a stylish way to keep up with all of those chic NYC women! The DUTCHI 1 in cream would put the perfect spring in my step especially when paired with their adorable teal rear wire basket!

  • 181. AIMEE  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:13 am

    I love the roadster classic in cream, so cute and simple!

  • 182. Elizabeth Baxter  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:14 am

    The dutchi1 in cream is my favorite bike! I love it all though. So lovely.

    I would love to win my boyfriend a roadster sport! Poor thing had his wheels stolen last month and needs a new ride!

  • 184. Colleen  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:14 am

    Love the Mixte 3 limited! Any color.

  • 185. Sloan  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:15 am

    Love, love, love both styles of the bikes. It is so awesome to see that the Roadster comes in a small frame size as I am a pretty petite young lady. The Basil Rear Bottle Basket comes in such great colour options. Nice work, Linus!

    If I could make my dream combo… Cream dutchi1 with a Mint Basil Rear basket.

  • 186. Eija  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:15 am

    The Dutchi 1 in Green is perfect! I’ve been bike shopping for the past year trying to find the perfect bike for commuting and quick trips. Thanks for sharing the beautiful bikes and baskets from Linus.

  • 187. MaryB  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:15 am

    Oh, how I would love to win this! I’ve never owned a bike in my life (and I am 60!) and just learned how to ride one a few months ago on a borrowed bike. I would love to have a bike of my own. My favorite is the Dutchi 1. I hope I win!

  • 188. shams  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:15 am

    loving the delano basket! it’s so unique!

  • 189. angie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:16 am

    I love the sleek, simplicity of the black Basil bottle rear basket. I’d put fresh sunflowers in it to remind of home in Kansas with a good book and a bottle of bubbly for no reason at all :)

  • 190. chelley  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:16 am

    I’ve been lusting after the beautiful green Dutchi 1! Just having moved back to my hometown of Raleigh, NC after living in NYC, I need a good alternative to a car. My current Huffy cruiser (which is really sweet) is too heavy to handle the Raleigh hills.

  • 191. Allison W  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:16 am

    Oh my goodness, what beautiful bikes!
    My husband and I have been on the hunt for the perfect bike for a year now. He’s been riding for a while, and I’m dying to shake the dust off my walking shoes and ride through some of the beautiful trails in my wonderful city of Raleigh.
    Though I’d say the Dutch 1 is more my style, I am in need of the Roadster 8 for the hilly rides found in the North Carolina Piedmont. The cream color is gorgeous accompanied with those brown details.
    I’d be tempted to purchase one of their rear wire baskets, or an adorable Nantucket basket. Honestly, though, I’d love to walk away with anything on this site.

  • 192. Lauren  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:17 am

    In love with the Classic Roadster and Mixte 3 in Cream. Add a Nantucket basket and a copper bell, and hello sweet summer. :)

  • 193. Khadija  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:18 am

    ooo dutchi 1 in cream, delicious ;) and it seems i’m not the only one craving that beauty!

  • 194. Emily  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:18 am

    I love the Dutch 1 in Cream, but in terms of accessories I think the Cardiff Grips Eastwick Wood would be a perfect accent. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway!

  • 195. Amanda  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:18 am

    I would LOVE the Nantucket Adult Lightship Tapered basket on the Dutchi! Perfect for spring!

  • 196. Melissa  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:20 am

    I’ve been wanting a Linus bike for ages! I have my heart set on the green Dutchi!

  • 197. Jessie J  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:20 am

    What an amazing give-a-way! If I were chosen, the bike would definitely be going into good hands & would be put to good use. I love the Roadster Classic in Cream.

  • 198. Kath jones  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:20 am

    When I first went to the Linus website I read their story, and I loved the part where they were saying that bikes arn’t being fully put to their use, that they are great for running errands around town. I thought that was kind of inspiring. I live in a college town, so I am constantly walking everywhere, but it would be so much fun and faster to ride around town on one of the Linus bikes. They’re beautiful! My favorite thing on the website is the Lil’ Roadster because it is adorable, although if I end up ordering my own bike I’ll also be purchasing the Rear Wire Basket, its lovely and I tend to have a lot of baggage. Ahhhh I need this bike!

  • 199. Ciara  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:20 am

    I’ve been wanting a bike for 2 solid years now. It’s either not been the right time, or I haven’t been able to afford one. I live in downtown Atlanta and a bike would really help me get everywhere I need to go without having to rely on a car. I’d love to be totally green this year! The dutchi 1 in cream is beautiful! Can I have one in my life?

  • 200. Cristina  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:21 am

    These images just made my rainy Brooklyn day brighter! I love the Nantucket Lightship tapered Basket with the copper bell!

  • 201. SHOPHOUSE  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:22 am

    We love biking all over the city! Betsy recently got her bike stolen outside our office :( The Dutchi is right up our alley, would love to pair it with the Peterboro Farmers Basket and a bouquet of pretty tulips!

  • 202. Kallie B  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:22 am

    Oh. my. YES! I’ve had a Linus bike on my wish list for a year now! We moved to Seattle from Florida a year ago and had to sell our bikes before the move. Now I’m completely without and Seattle’s beautiful summer is just around the corner. This would be a dream come true! The Roadster Sport is my fave, but I’ll quite happily choose the Roadster Classic if I win. Fingers crossed!

  • 203. Stacey  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:22 am

    Soooo pretty! Thanks for the introduction to this sweet company! The Dutchi in Cream (with a basket!) would certainly be my favorite! It’s about to be a perfect season for this around Cape Cod and the farmers markets! Maybe even in time for the Daffodil Festival on Nantucket! XO

  • 204. Meredith  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:22 am

    oh la la! I LOVE bicycles! I am crushing on the Mixte 3! Amsterdam style bikes are just so fun! Perfect to ride alongside your boo! Add a cute basket on front and you are all set for a picnic date! Happy Spring!

  • 205. Jessica  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:23 am

    The Roadster Classic in Cream :)!! My younger brother sold my bike a couple years ago without my permission and I have been dreaming of what I will get to replace it – this is perfect!! I’m in love.

  • 206. becka robinson  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:23 am

    Oh please please please pick me! I’ve been wanting one like this but it is just not in the budget right now. If I won I’d pick the Dutchi 1 in cream and I’d probably end up buying one of the Yepp Mini kids seats so my son could ride to the farmer’s market down the road with me! I’d also get one of the wire baskets for the back so I could load up all our farmer’s market goods and my bag. Oh my gosh, how perfect. :)

  • 207. Christina  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:23 am

    That head lamp would be really cute on my bike! I would love to win to give it to my boyfriend, because his bike was stolen :(

  • 208. Katie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:24 am

    I like the Dutches I in cream. So dreamy.

  • 209. Shannyn  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:24 am

    I have been in love with Linus bikes forever, and have seriously been considering pulling the trigger on one lately! Perfect for bike rides down to the beach. The Dutchi 1 in cream, hands-down!

  • 210. Kristin  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:24 am

    I love the Dutch1 bike in green and the Nantucket adult lightship basket. So cute. I have been wanting a new bike for soo long.

  • 211. Stephanie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:24 am

    Adoring the Roadster Classic- slender and speedy, just like the one I keep borrowing from a friend while he’s out of town and mine is being fixed (for the 3rd time in the lat 6 months)! While I save for a new bike ($500 is a lot to come up with between two part time jobs and school), I am loving how fun, and fast these thin bikes are. I woosh down the street to the beach to enjoy times with friends, or a scenic run. I am lusting over the adjustable rear rack and that canvas market bag- durable, classic, oh so cute and perfect for stocking up on fresh produce!

  • 212. Jamie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:25 am

    I am completely, head over heels in love with the kelly green Dutchi-1 bike. Like serenade it outside of its window love.

  • 213. Sarah  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:26 am

    Ohhh, the Dutchi 1 in green hand down! A few more weeks and it will be prime “leave the car parked and pedal everywhere” season :-)

  • 214. Katie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:26 am

    I have been scouring Craigslist for a vintage bike to troll around town…and the Dutchi 1 in Spring Green is JUST what I’ve been looking for! Add the Nantucket oval basket and I’m set! Love the florals in these photos. Thanks!

  • 215. Dani  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:26 am

    A Linus bike would sure be a nice replacement for my old Craigslist cruiser that needs new tires, chain and basket!

  • 216. Jamie Schoen  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:26 am

    What a fantastic giveaway. I have a bike but my boyfriend doesn’t… we could ride together!!! I like the classic in cream:)

  • 217. Rachel  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:27 am

    The Dutchi 1 is the style of a bike I have been looking around for! I absolutely love the cream color and it would go great together with the Nantucket Adult Lightship Tapered basket

  • 218. Judy P  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:27 am

    I LOVE Linus bikes :) So happy you did this style post! I love the straight lines of the Dutchi 1. It’s exactly the type of bike I’ve been dreaming of building for myself. I’m in love with the Nantucket woven baskets, and you can’t go wrong with Bookman lights for when it gets dark! <3

  • 219. erika  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:27 am

    The green Dutchi 1 is definitely the one! So beautiful!

  • 220. Florencia  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:29 am

    OMG I have seriously been desiring a bike like crazy, but cannot afford one at all, not even from Craigslist. PLEASEEE! I love the Dutchi 1 in Cream :)

  • 221. Giselle  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:31 am

    The rear wire basket is adorable, especially on that roadster classic!!!

  • 222. Heather Jones  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:32 am

    Dutchi1 in Cream is beautiful! What a great giveaway :)

  • 223. Piia  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:32 am

    Holy holiness :), amazing! Thanks for the opportunity, I would love to win the Dutchi1! Beautiful bike!

    I love/want/need that rear wire basket! I’ve been missing out on some romantic bike rides with my fiancé for some time now since I haven’t had any wheels. Perf combo: The dutchi1 in sky blue with that rear wire basket. When I’m not riding I’ll full the basket with fruits and flowers and use it to add some romance to my yard!

  • 226. Charmaine  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:33 am

    I currently have a helmet, but no bike. I’d love one of these pretty linus bikes! The Nantucket Adult Lightship basket on their site is really nice too!

  • 227. Esther  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:33 am

    Dutchi1 in cream is the one for me. Have been wanting a bike so I can go on rides with my husband and 1 1/2 year old son. This would be perfect and so lovely!!

  • 228. Masha  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:34 am

    I am an art student in Florida so I constantly ride my bike around, especially to get groceries. My bike is quite old now so it’s already quite rusty in places. If I were to get a Linus bike, I would definitely grab a rear seat basket to carry all my purchases, as well as a sturdy D lock so the bike stays in my possession forever! Man, that green Dutchi is pulling at my heartstrings…

  • 229. gabrielle  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:34 am

    i absolutely love the dutchi! it looks perfect for a ride on the town, with a big bouquet of flowers in my basket :)

  • 230. Sydney H  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:35 am

    I LOVE the roadster classic. So cute and classic.

  • 231. Whitney  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:35 am

    The roadster in the creme is beautiful! I live on a college campus and a bike would be such a great asset! Not to mention a stress reliever!

  • 232. christine  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:37 am

    i’ve been wanting a cruiser for so long now! that dutchi in spring with a nantucket lighthouse basket is perfection! <3

  • 233. Marie jones  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:37 am

    This is crazy, I have been lusting over the Roadster Classic in cream ever since I saw it!! Im feeling lucky, today I just happened to find your blog, and while I was admiring how fresh and springy it is I came to the giveaway and got so excited!!! The Roadster Classic in cream is my favorite thing they have. It’s very lighthearted and dreamy, which is exactly the mindset I want to be in this Spring and throughout the Summer. I just want to put on my biggest sunglasses and float around town on it…

  • 234. Tim Lampe  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:39 am

    Oh man, this is perfect. I’m in the market for a new bike! I’m really just digging the original roadster classic in cream. Such a gorgeous bike!

  • 235. Katy  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:40 am

    oh my! The roadster classic in cream is just my kind of bike. Love it! Such a perfect giveaway, now I just need the warm weather to get here already!! :-)

  • 236. Leila  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:41 am

    Absolutely in love with the Roadster Classic in cream! I haven’t had a bike for years and have been looking for one, but no luck. This one is perfect and great way to motivate to ride my bike to class instead of driving!

  • 237. Anonymous  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:42 am

    The Dutchi 1 in Kelly Green is a day brightener! I would love my first summer in Burlington, VT to involve a lot of bathing suit biking to the beaches of lake Champlain. Hmmm a basket might also come in handy for those sunset picnics with bottle(s) of wine….

  • 238. Elyse  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:42 am

    Eek! The Roadster Classic in cream is so elegant! Love the design. This one would definitely be friends with my Schwinn Jenny. I would DEFINITELY need one of those adorable woven baskets, too. And the apple green seat! For flare :)

  • 239. Jenna Rainey  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:42 am

    What a great idea. I love the basil bottle rear basket!

  • 240. ana  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:44 am

    I was JUST telling the hubby how I wanted a bicycle for my birthday so we can take our little Edie on family bike rides around SF and I think the roadster classic would be perfect!

  • 241. Sarah white  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:45 am

    I’ve had my eye on the Roadster 8 for awhile now but can’t afford it. :( would love the Roadster classic though in black or creme!!

  • 242. Hanah  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:46 am

    I love the Roadster bike…super classy! As well as the rear wire basket, it would be perfect for the groceries I lug around (as a college student, I do a lot of commuting).

  • 243. Pankita Desai  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:46 am

    I HAVE BEEN WANTING A BIKE FOREVER! This is a great giveaway! I love the DUTCHI IN CREAM. Love the woven basket, perfect for summer picnics in the park <3 IN LOVE!

    oh mannn! the roadster classic in cream! <3

  • 245. Sarah  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:48 am

    This is an amazing giveaway! I have been window shopping beautiful bikes ever since I moved to Chicago (2 years ago…) The Linus bikes are beautiful and I love the office bag- sleek and polished for my commute.

  • 246. Jihan  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:48 am

    Life is better on a bike.
    Balloons are better delivered on a bike too. Two bikes have been stolen from me in LA this past year and so I no longer ride through town with big huge bundles of balloons to deliver, which is really sad! :)
    If entrusted with a dutchi 1 in white (with bright metal baskets I would buy from the shop) , I would promise to be a beacon of kindness and friendly delight… With music ringing, frill on the handlebars streaming and smiles beaming!
    I’ll be the ambassador of love, on my linus… Pedaling through town with big bombastic balloons billowing behind me.
    I promise. Balloon trooper honor.
    Xo

  • 247. Danielle  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:48 am

    the dutchi 1 in cream would be perfect for our weekend trips to the farmer’s market. we’re about to be a one car family, and a bike would be so helpful for getting around town!

  • 248. anika  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:49 am

    What a beautiful post. I’ve been wanting a new bike, especially now that spring is on its way. I love the Dutchi I in spring. Such a great color!

  • 249. Rachel  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:50 am

    I love the Linus Market Bag :) and it would be great if I could win the roadster classic in cream – my husband was planning on purchasing me a bike this spring, but how great would it be to WIN one!

  • 250. Chris Yinger  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:50 am

    oh oh OH i LOVE the green Dutchi!! It’s so sleek and beautiful and perfect for my daily rides! Also my bike, much loved and my only mode of transport, was stollen this week so please oh please pick me!! Ah sweet beautiful bike.. I smile and cross my fingers and hope for you…

  • 251. Georgie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:51 am

    Beautiful bikes! I’d love a green Duchi to scoot around my new city (San Francisco). Especially with the Delano basket for trips to the farmer’s market. Hope I win!!

  • 252. Colette  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:52 am

    Love the rear wire basket!! Perfect for farmers markets… I would LOVE a new Dutchi 1 to pedal around Park City!

  • 253. Kait  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:52 am

    my boyfriend and i walk past their shop every weekend and always think to ourselves “if only…”

    their bikes are so cute – i think the dutchi 1 is adorable and my favorite item from their shop is the nantucket basket. too good.

  • 254. Priscilla  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:53 am

    Oh my goodness, the Dutchie bike in cream is so awesome! Perfect to ride to campus or around town! I love the linus headlamp as well, perfect for summer night rides!

  • 255. Stephanie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:53 am

    Such beautiful bikes! Would LOVE to cruise around sunny Denver, CO this summer in a cream colored Dutchi 1!

  • 256. Erin  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:54 am

    Winning a Spring Dutchi 1 would be a dream! I was drooling over the Mixte 3 in Sky Blue too!

  • 257. Colleen  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:54 am

    The Dutchi 1 in green is so swoonworthy! The perfect two-wheeler to ride through the park with my beau this summer! Sigh.

  • 258. Nadine  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:55 am

    I’d love to take my puppy out on a bike IN the Nantucket adult lightship basket of course haha!

  • 259. Sarah  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:57 am

    The cream Duchi 1 is a dream.

  • 260. Ada  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:57 am

    I love all of the bikes! I have been dreaming of getting a new bike for ages, and these are beautiful. I think the Mixte or the Dutchi are my favorites, but honestly they’re all perfect. Lovely colors, too!

  • 261. Liz  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:57 am

    The Delano Basket would come in handy!
    I adore the classic roadster. :)

  • 262. Ashley Garcia  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:58 am

    I have been pinning bikes as of late because biking at the beach and around town in this nice weather sounds just perfect! The Roadster Classic with the rear wire basket would be a dream come true. I would look so cute with my beach towel in the back riding next to my sweetheart down the boulevard! Thanks for this awesome give-away and introducing these rad bikes to me!

  • 263. Leah  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:59 am

    Every bike is absolutely amazing, but I also really adore the Market Bag. Commuting to work would be so fun!!

  • 264. Ashley  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:01 pm

    Hello there! The Dutchi 1 is adorable!!! I have been looking for the perfect bike now that my little boy is old enough to ride along! This would be the absolute best accessory to a summer dress with a lunch packed in a rear wire basket!!! I can just smell the flowers we’d be whizzing by!

  • 265. Kayla Sheerin  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:02 pm

    I am in LOVE with the Mixte 3, in the teal version! Who wouldn’t want a bike to brighten up their sunshine and hit the road
    To the farmers market, with a Dorothy & toto basket going on! I miss my old bike so much! The Mixte 3 looks like a revamped twin! I can’t wait for summer to cruise in the sleek Linus bike! <3

  • 266. Kate Bradshaw  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:02 pm

    My sister is getting ready for her move to Austin, Tx and has been going on and on about needing a bike to run around town on. My plan was to go to a sporting goods store and find one that would get the job done, until I saw this! It hasn’t even crossed my mind that I could find her a bike this chic! This is so right up her ally, this Linus bike belongs in Austin with my sister. If we win, I’m going to get her a Rear Wire Basket so she can run all of her errands with it. I’m also going to get her the Bell, she loved the bell on her bike when we were kids, but she rang it too much and our mother took it away HA!

  • 267. Jada  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:03 pm

    Love, love, love the Dutch 1 in “spring.” Loooonging for summertime in Chicago and this would be perfect.

  • 268. Rachel  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:05 pm

    The Dutchi in cream is heaven. It’s so much like the bike from my study abroad Amsterdam days, it even has the same bell. And what a perfect bike for spring! I’d kiss my car goodbye every morning, hop on the bike path and pedal to work. What an amazing DLF giveaway – the first one I couldn’t pass up!

  • 269. Kyle Taylor  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:07 pm

    My girlfriend has wanted a Linus bike for months. It’d be great for riding down the boardwalk in Santa Monica!

  • 270. Rachel Tobias  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:07 pm

    Gosh I used to live right down the street from this shop! :) Now I live in San Francisco and desperately need a bike, when I never really needed one in LA (yay for being free from my car!). I love the rear wire basket! And if given the chance, I would certainly choose the Roadster Classic!

    Thanks lovely!

  • 271. Yvonne  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:08 pm

    Love the little bicycle bells! I’ve always wanted one! Everything at Linus Bike is so cute and classic.

  • 272. Clara Vigh Riis  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:08 pm

  • 273. nicole  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:09 pm

    The Dutchi 1 in green is beautiful! And I’ve been saving for a bike, so winning this giveaway would be perfect! :)

  • 274. Haley Doolittle  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:10 pm

    I’m the victim of a stolen bike, so I would love to win a new one! I like the Dutchi 1 in Cream. I would add the rear Wire basket in Teal to it as well!
    Keeping my fingers crossed!

    Oh boy!!! The DUTCHI 1 in cream is my dream bike. I woul feel so blessed to win anything from Linus. Their bikes are the best! Fingers crossed

  • 277. Mary Hermes  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:13 pm

    Love everything, but especially the Mixte bike. So adorable. Look cute while get some exercise!

  • 278. D Robinson  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:16 pm

    The Dutchi 1 in spring green are what dreams are made of. It’s absolutely beautiful.

  • 279. Jessie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:16 pm

    That Roadster Classic is SWEET. It’s a nice middle ground between cruiser and road bike. I’d go for classic black with a Delano Basket – gotta have something to tote your goodies in!

  • 280. Rose  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:17 pm

    Ah!! My husband bought a fancy (& expensive) road bike last Summer. Now it is my turn to have a pretty bike! I would absolutely cruise around on the Dutchi 1 in CREAM! I even made a style-board last August fantasizing about a new bike and it looks very similar to the Dutchi – check it out: http://www.polyvore.com/summer_ride/set?id=55084432

  • 281. stephanie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:17 pm

    I have looong admired those beautiful bikes on Abbot Kinney and on the streets around Venice. I would love to win one now that I am in SF, such a bike friendly town. I would love to ride to and from work on a Linus. My favorite item on the site is the Roadster Classic in Cream. And those Lil Roadsters for kids are so cute!

  • 282. The Belvedere-Alyssa  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:17 pm

    Oh la la- best giveaway i’ve seen in a while! I love the cork grips they have- what a classic bike accessory. Would love to win!

  • 283. Michelle Nutter  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:17 pm

    Their bikes are awesome…I’ve been dreaming of a new bike for so looong!

  • 284. Rose  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:17 pm

    p.s. I would add a basket for sure!

  • 285. Casandra Salas-Porras  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:18 pm

    Jaw dropped!
    Pants fell down!
    Fire on my ears!
    Hat flew away! with the Dutch 3 Limited Edition. Wowza.

  • 286. Cristina J  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:18 pm

    These bikes are adorable. My favorite accessory on the site would be the Nantucket Tuckernuck Tapered. This basket would be really cute on the green cruiser. A new bike would be so much fun for our family activity – my siberian husky puppy chases me on the bicycle and pulls my boyfriend on his skateboard!

  • 287. Jana Miller  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:18 pm

    The Diuch 1 in cream please!

  • 288. Taylor Rae  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:19 pm

    I have to say this is one of the best giveaways yet! Who gives away a bike, someone extremely awesome like you Bri. I would loooooove to win the beautiful green Dutchi bike. After taking a long look at Linus website I’m pretty sure all their bags are some of the most amazing I’ve ever seen. My favorite is The Market Bag.

  • 289. Dana  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:19 pm

    I love the Roadster Classic bike in cream! So gorgeous! And would be adorable with the Nantucket Adult Lightship Tapered basket!

  • 290. Brittany  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:20 pm

    My husband and I just moved to America from Copenhagen, land of bikes, and though we are thrilled to have a car, I find myself wishing for my bike. We rode our bikes everywhere and I developed some pretty great leg muscles. Sadly, we didn’t bring them over with us, and now that the weather is getting better, I’d love nothing more than the use a bike for my errands once again. I absolutely love your brand of bikes and love so many products. I’m REALLY digging your baskets, like your Nantucket. I think Danes would really love your products too. I’d LOVE to win this bike (Dutchi, of course) and show my readers that I’m once again on a bike!

  • 291. ccm  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:20 pm

    I love the Nantucket Cisco Tapered Basket. It would look perfect on the Dutchi 1 in Spring!

  • 292. Jenny (vintagesugarcube)  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:21 pm

    Ohhh my gawd! The Oopsmark wine rack for a bike? I must have.

  • 293. Maria agurto  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:23 pm

    I love the dutchi 1! I’ve been dying for a new bike!! I hope I win! Thanks for the wonderful giveaway!

    the Dutchi1 in cream, please. so. this is a funny one for me. because actually, I don’t know HOW to ride a bike. I know, RIGHT! it’s awkward. when people say “oh, it’s just like riding a bike!” I cringe. I knew once! now, I don’t. it seems, ah yes, I’ve *forgotten.* when I lived in NYC it was okay – I could walk, it was a choice. it was a lifestyle, walking places. but now here in Los Angeles, it’s becoming a thing. everyone knows about it! I miss out on bike rides down to the beach, trips to the market that are a breeze on a bike but kind of a trek on foot. I have to kind of duck out of these gatherings or otherwise tell them I’ll just *jog* next to the caravan of chic bikes. right, yes. jog alongside the bikes! I’m confident that if I had a pretty little Linus, I’d make it happen. I can ride a little bit, like, in straight lines, uninterrupted, no obstacles added to my trajectory. I’m quite sure I just need some good practice. is it a little histrionic to say that winning this contest might.. just.. change… my California life?! I’ve said it. fingers crossed!

    Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of riding a bike. [ John F. Kennedy]

    And boy would I love to have one to ride … particularly the cream Dutchi! We would go together like bacon and eggs … and we all know that everything is better with bacon! :)

    • THE REAR WIRE BASKET
    • OOPSMARK WINE HOLDER 1″
    • COPPER BELL-SIDE STRIKER

  • 296. Meg  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:24 pm

    Such a great giveaway. I really wish more people rode bikes instead of driving cars! Linus bikes are the cutest and I especially love the baby blue mixte 3 and of course the dutchi 1!!!

  • 297. Stephanie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:25 pm

    Ahhh, spring is definitely in the air! Day adventures riding around with fresh flowers from the market and the crisp air and warm sun upon your face…Dreamy!!
    The Copper Bell is lovely! Brings back great memories of the bell I once had on my bike as a child.

  • 298. lydia {ever ours}  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:25 pm

    i never win these things..but it’s always worth a shot. i’ve been hunting for a new bike since i now live 4 blocks from work and would rather bike instead. would love to win this bike and pick up a basket from linus too!

  • 299. Wendy  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:25 pm

    Oh my, these photos are so lovely and the bikes/baskets/flowers are pure joy! I have been looking for a new “vintage” bike and the dutchi 1, in cream, is just stunning, the colors the details the lines are sure to transport the rider back in time. I also love the Nantucket Adult basket. Now I just want to go to Venice and live this blog post.
    Thank you for sharing this and the chance to win!

  • 300. Tracie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:25 pm

    A cream Roadster Classic with a teal Rear Wire Basket?! Thinking about that gives me butterflies. The dream bike.

  • 301. Stephanie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:26 pm

    I love the Gaston 3!

  • 302. Ashleigh Bergh  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:27 pm

    I absolutely love the Nantucket Adult Lightship Tapered basket – being from New England and living in Los Angeles, I miss so many things that are typical East Coast. That basket instantly makes me think of home!

  • 303. Kim  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:27 pm

    First of all, such lovely photos!

    I’ve been looking for a new bike! As a photographer in SF (without a car), I need a better mode of transportation to help me location scout for photo shoots! I love both of the bikes, but if I had to choose, I’d go for the Dutchi 1 in cream. :)

    Also, love this basket: http://shop.linusbike.com/collections/linus-baskets/products/the-rear-wire-basket Would be perfect to put my camera bag in!

  • 304. Laura  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:28 pm

    The green Dutchi 1 with a rear wire basket would be perfect! I am about to move to California and I am looking for a great bike so I can be a bike only commuter. This would seal the deal!

  • 305. Georgia  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:30 pm

    the roadster classic in redwood! would be great to ride to work :)

  • 306. Rose  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:31 pm

    p.s.s. all of the Linus accessories are so great! I am stck browsing their goodies!

  • 307. Angie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:31 pm

    Oh my goodness! My fav shop street, Abbot Kinney, and beautiful Linus Bikes featured all in one post…yes please! I would accessorize the DUTCHI 1 in Spring Green with the Oopsmark Wine Holder and Basil Bottle Rear Basket… picnic season here we come!

  • 308. Carmen Ellis  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:32 pm

    Apparently I am not alone in my love with the Roadster Classic in cream. It’s been on my “Dream” board on Pinterest for at least a year now! P.S. Thanks for all the inspiration your blog brings!

    -Carmen

  • 309. Paige Smith  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:33 pm

    I love the Dutchi 1 in cream. It is just beautiful. It would look amazing with one the the Nantucket baskets on the front. Makes me want it to be spring ASAP!

  • 310. Sarah  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:33 pm

    I am such a fan of the Dutchi. A new bike just in time for Spring!
    I love the timeless bags too. The satchel and the office bag are the perfect mix of old timey and classic.

  • 311. Madison Bartz  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:33 pm

    Can I tell you how in love I am with everything Linus produces? The bikes are gorgeous and the Crane Riten Bell with the Rear Wire Basket are the *perfect* accessories. I live in Downtown Fargo, ND and in the summer I ride everywhere. My current bike was destroyed from a ride I took one day. My maxi skirt got caught in the front tire, locked it and i flew forward into the street. Thank goodness for my front basket that broke the fall a bit. And thank goodness that on coming traffic had their eyes peeled for me. It’s funny to visualize, that’s for sure! I’d be honored to own anything from Linus so I’ll just cross my fingers and hope that I’m your lucky girl!

  • 312. Alexis  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:34 pm

    The Dutchi 3 with the Farmers Market basket would be just perfect for summer rides for local produce. I’m living in Amsterdam for now and would be over the moon to be able to continue to bike around once I get home.

  • 313. sarah  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:35 pm

    Love the dutchi 1 in cream! So classic and timeless :) would be so much fun to ride it to work everyday!

  • 314. Marie Bradshaw  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:35 pm

    My bike was run over a few weeks ago by my next door neighbor who is the sweetest lady. She is insisting on buying me a new bike but I know she can’t afford it anymore than I can, so I’ve been super vague every time she brings it up, asking me if I’ve found a replacement yet. Long story short this would be KISMET! I adore all of their bikes, especially the curvier ones like the Dutchi 3 Limited Edition. They’re very chic and feminine. So French. EEK!

  • 315. Jasmine Joy  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:35 pm

    The Cream Dutch and Copper bell make a power couple! Absolutely perfect. If you add in the wire rear basket I’d fall real hard for that one. Beautiful.

  • 316. mari  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:37 pm

    I love the Dutchi 1! Such pretty bike.

  • 317. Kelsey  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:38 pm

    The Dover 5 in stone gray- love it

  • 318. Tessa Sanchez  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:38 pm

    The Dutchi 3 Limited Edition is so classy! Your post reminds me of all-day summertime rides on the river. That’s a very uplifting image, considering it’s a sad, snowy day in Boston. Thanks Bri!

  • 319. Aidan Miolano  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:41 pm

    Love the Dutchi 1 in cream! So chic! It would be lovely to ride around on for spring. I have a small puppy who would look awful cute in a wicker basket :3 Thanks for the lovely giveaway! Fingers are crossed!

  • 320. Jessica  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:42 pm

    The bikes and baskets all look great! Love the dutchi 1 in cream! It would be perfect for riding around in the summer!

  • 321. Sarah  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:44 pm

    What an awesome post and giveaway!! I love the Linus website and one of my favorite items is the Nantucket tapered basket. It would be adorable on the roadster Linus bike!!! Please pick me!!

  • 322. Alyssa  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:44 pm

    Oh my! Do I have to pick just one thing from their lovely shop? I have always wanted a bike with a Nantucket basket and a hand painted bell on it. I would be delighted to win :)

  • 323. Debra Matlock  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:45 pm

    I LOVE the Dutchi in green. My mom had a dutch style bike when I was a kid, she would go out on a ride and come back with a basket full of wildflowers for me :)

  • 324. malika luthra  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:46 pm

    all of the models are gorgeous but the dutch 1 in cream makes me swoon! one of these would be the perfect start to taking advantage of the lovely summertime weather here in seattle!

  • 325. Megan Herak  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:47 pm

    I bike all spring, summer, and fall in NYC. I borrowed my friends bike for the past year (since mine was stolen) :( I love the roadster classic even though there are so many options! :) great photo shoot!

  • 326. Marin  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:48 pm

    Love these bikes and baskets! Since I’m in college, having a bike would be so nice and make getting around campus so much easier! I love the basil bottle rear basket in pastel green. The vintagey look is so cute and springy. Between the two bikes, I would love to win the dutchi 1 bike in cream–I’m giddy over how cute that basket and bike would look together! Thanks for giving us that chance to win such awesome giveaways!

  • 327. Dale Mackey  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:49 pm

    I LOVE the roadster classic in cream. So very adorable!

  • 328. natalie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:49 pm

    <3 Linus bikes! And <3<3 this post! I can totally picture myself riding a Dutchi 1 with my cute pup in the basket…woo!

  • 329. Kathryn  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:50 pm

    Oh my goodness! These are such beautiful bikes and accessories. If I have to pick I guess I would choose the “Dutchi 1″ in the cream. But “The Office” and “The Pouch” are amazing!

  • 330. Allison  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:52 pm

    oh my goodness, i’ve been itching to get a bike and these are so beautiful. i love the dutch 1 style <3 and the basket on the back is so adorable.

  • 331. Jess W  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:52 pm

    The Brass Bell (Understrike) on the Dutchi 1 in Cream would look suuuuuper fly cruising down the Ballona Creek Bike Path from my new condo!

  • 332. Nati  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:53 pm

    I’m an urban designer who embarrassingly can barely ride a bike. But I’ve been mustering up the courage to learn, and dreaming of a beautiful bike to ride around my city all winter long! Would love a Spring Green Dutch 1 with a Rear Wire Basket to ride every day.

  • 333. Emily  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:53 pm

    I love the Dutchi 1 in Cream. My husband and I are a one car family, and I’ve been wanting a bike to make life a little easier. Absolutely beautiful bicycles!

  • 334. Dawn Gahan  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:54 pm

    Well, the Dutchi 1 in cream is just about as simple and happy as a bike can be. What a luvly giveaway!

  • 335. Lesley Myrick  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:54 pm

    The Dutchi 1 in cream is just perfection! I’d love to ride it all around sunny Pasadena.

  • 336. Rachel Apodaca  |  March 19th, 2013 at 12:59 pm

    I really love the BRASS BELL – UNDER STRIKER and THE MARKET BAG

  • 337. kristine  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:00 pm

    pick me! i would love, love, love the dutchi 1 in cream.

  • 338. Kathyrine  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:01 pm

    Wow, this is an amazing giveaway! Both of my sisters have a bike and I’ve been using their’s instead of getting my own bike. I think my favorite item would be the Satchel, it looks liked can take it around everywhere. And I would love to win the Dutchi1 in cream. :)

  • 339. NOELL | LOGAN  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:01 pm

    Lalalalala —-> the roadster classic in cream + a little basket that my kitten can ride in*

    xoxoxo

  • 340. Betsy  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:01 pm

    My car has been having a lot of issues lately so I have been looking for a new bike. The Dutchi 1 looks perfect for a ride around town, or, if I add on a basket or rear rack, I could ride to and from work. Everywhere I go is within riding distance, all I need is a bike!

  • 341. Carissa  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:01 pm

    I love the Dutch 1 bike in green! I live in Richmond, VA, which is a fantastic bike-friendly city, and am sans-bike. I’d love to ride the Dutch 1 to the Carytown Farmers Market!

  • 342. Ashley  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:03 pm

    I love the Dutchi 1 in Green! The design is exquisite and it has such a classic look. The green gives it the perfect pop of freshness that is definitely lacking here on the East Coast with the snow we got today! This bike would be so cool to own and would definitely make my commute to the train station much more enjoyable :)

  • 343. Leah  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:04 pm

    I love the Dutch 3 in sage. So sweet. I live in Philly which is a great biking city!

  • 344. Laura  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:04 pm

    I love the Roadster Classic in the gorgeous rosewood color! I had one and it was sadly stolen last year, so I’d love the chance to replace it. Darn NYC bike thieves!!!

  • 345. Jordan  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:06 pm

    Love the Duchi 1! Would purchase it myself if I had the extra funds laying around! I can just imagine myself cruising to the local coffee shop by my house to enjoy a nice cappuccino before heading over to the lake. Beautiful pictures!

  • 346. Ash  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:07 pm

    This giveaway brought a tear to my eye, no exaggeration. I really want a bike, and the affordable options are lackluster. These bikes are so beautiful – I love the girlieness of the Dutchi 1 in green. They also have some of the best bike accessories I’ve seen (on which I went Pin crazy).

  • 347. Nicole  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:08 pm

    I’m loving the Dutchi in Spring and for an accessory, the rear wire basket. Such a fun giveaway!

    Thanks.

  • 348. katie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:09 pm

    the roadster classic in cream fo’ sho!

  • 349. Janelle  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:09 pm

    I’ve had a linus on my wishlist for a few years now! They are such beautiful bikes! My fave on the site is the roadster classic in black. These photos are gorgeous by the way. Love the linus shop on abbot kinney!

  • 350. Macy W.  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:10 pm

    The Dutchi 1 in cream has my heart! I would love to ride this to and from summer classes at San Francisco State.

  • 351. Justine  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:11 pm

    This is kind of perfect timing because I saw the Dutchi 1 about two years ago in Cream color at my local bike shop when I was getting my old mountain bike repaired. The one I saw had a rear rack and a front basket and I knew then that I would get one at some point and ride it along the waterfront in DC and Virginia in the nice weather. I travel alot for my profession (archaeology) and unfortunately haven’t been able to save up yet so this could be the answer to my Linus dream!

  • 352. meg  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:13 pm

    I can defintely see myself cruising around on the Dutchi1 with a Delano Basket attached!

  • 353. Tori  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:15 pm

    Oh my gosh, I have been dying for a new bike! I love the Roadster Classic so much. I would definitely go with the color cream. :)

  • 354. Maggee  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:16 pm

    It snowed in NYC last night, but I’m still pulling for an early spring! A Dutch 1 in cream would be the perfect spring accessory.

  • 355. Lauren Dinley  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:18 pm

    This giveaway couldn’t have come in a better time! My brother used to use my bike and it now belongs to the garbage bin):
    I absolutely adore the Nantucket Adult Lightship Tapered basket. I can just imagine going to the farmers market and bringing home the prettiest flowers and produce. I’ve been loving the Dutchi 1 in cream for a while now, and I know that basket would look perfect with it!

  • 356. Josie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:18 pm

    Loved this post! Dutchi 1 in cream. (Worth a shot)

  • 357. Pilar  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:23 pm

    that Lil’ Dutchi is killing me. can i be 5 all over again?

  • 358. lootie tootie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:24 pm

    The dutchie 1 in cream would be a dream and what a scream if I won. I own the perfect basket, It is ready to be filled to the brim with fresh fruits and veggies from the farmer’s market.

    Here’s the kicker, my mother actually owns a linus and I secretly want to be twinsies with her! She is pure chic, I want to be her.

  • 359. Anathalia  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:28 pm

    This post just looks like the spring I’m waiting for here in Boston! Beautiful! I love the Dutchi 1 in spring (green) and I would definitely get a Nantucket lightship basket to go with it!

  • 360. Danielle  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:29 pm

    The Roadster Classic in Cream for sure. I’ve been dying to try riding a bike here in Brooklyn and this one is just too gorgeous! Spring on a bike would be amazing!!

  • 361. Haley  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:30 pm

    Perfect for riding to the market soon! I’m in love with the Basil Bottle Rear Basket on the dutchi-styled bike.

  • 362. Jenna  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:31 pm

    Im loving the rear wire basket in teal! So cute and practical. I’d put it on the roadster classic in cream. So perfect for summer!

  • 363. rachael  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:31 pm

    oh goodness, these photos are too pretty!
    i’ve been dreaming of buying a bike for this spring, but haven’t been able to spend the money just yet. the cream dutchi 1 is gorgeous.

  • 364. Nicole  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:32 pm

    I really like the Dutchi 1 in green. And the rear mesh basket. I’ve never had a bicycle with fenders, or a basket before!!

  • 365. Allie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:33 pm

    I love the YEPP Maxi child seat. I love that I would be able to travel in style with my little one.

  • 366. Kathl  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:33 pm

    LINUS BIKES! Oh, I love these little fellas. They are so dreamy especially the Dutchi 1 in spring! I just moved to a new city with a great bike path and have been itching to snag a great bike sometime soon! I am just bogged down with wedding planning (yay for July 27) and finishing up my English degree! Fingers crossed I can get my paws on one! Exciting stuff!

  • 367. Sarah  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:34 pm

    so cute!! I love the rear wire basket!

  • 368. Celeste  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:36 pm

    I am going to be dreaming about the Dutchi 1 (alternating nights between the spring green and the cream. I want the Market bag AND the Office bag and the Linus headlamp for safety, of course. I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed and start saving up some cash anyways!

  • 369. Paige  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:39 pm

    your giving away a bike?! this is fabulous.
    bikes are possibly my favorite thing in the world!
    I have a bike pretty similar to the dover 5 in cream, but obvi the dover is better. The one problem with my bike is i haven’t had the time (okay, or money) to actually make the bike fit my “personal aesthetic”. This thing is my car, I want it to stand out, have little trinkets that make it, well… me.
    I am in love with head lamps and would love the linus headlamp (it’ll make a big difference riding at night)! But, what would be super awesome to finally have is the delano basket! I could finally ride my bike to get groceries and not look like a weirdo!

  • 370. Sheri Herrera  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:40 pm

    This bike is my favorite: http://www.linusbike.com/models/mixte-3/

    Mixte 3, in sky blue.

    If I win, I love the Dutchi 1 style in CREAM!

    Lots of love and excitement!

    Thank you!

  • 372. Pomai Weall  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:41 pm

    The Dutchi bike in cream with a brass bell and Peterboro Original basket is pure perfection!

  • 373. betsy  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:45 pm

    The Roadster Classic in Cream is GORGEOUS and would be perfect for riding around my town!

  • 374. Emily Dolan  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:45 pm

    I would love to ride the Dutchi 1 all around the Chicago when I move there this spring!

  • 375. Krista  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:45 pm

    The roadster classic is my favorite item in their shop…although those baskets are quite wonderful as well! I would choose the Roadster Classic in Black or maybe…cream?

  • 376. aileen  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:47 pm

    Oh! And my most favorite product from their shop is the Delano Basket. It’s perfect! http://shop.linusbike.com/collections/linus-baskets/products/delano-basket

  • 377. Hillary  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:48 pm

    I was just day dreaming about owning a Linus and riding around my new neighborhood (Glassel Park). I would feel like a French New Wave dream riding The Dutchi 1 in cream with the wire basket!
    Love DLF + Moon Canyon Floral posts!

  • 378. joyce kim  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:50 pm

  • 380. Celeste  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:52 pm

    My favorite item in the shop is the brown Peterboro basket– so classic and perfect for any bike. If I were to choose a bike, I’d pick the roadster in cream :)

  • 381. Hilliary  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:52 pm

    I have been loving that classic roadster for such a long time!

  • 382. Heather  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:55 pm

    I LOVE the roadster classic in cream! I live near downtown San Diego and my husband and I share a car so a bike has been on our wish list for lovely rides around Balboa Park or running errands!

  • 385. Allison  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:58 pm

    I love the classic roadster! This would be the perfect ride for when I return to school this summer. Fingers crossed!

  • 386. des  |  March 19th, 2013 at 1:59 pm

    oh, a new linus bike would be a dream! i am a mom with a cargo bike to ride the littles around but to have a sweet bike of my own would be so lovely. i love love love the wooden grips and the tuckernuck basket. i’d be the fanciest mom around, for sure!!

  • 387. Marilyn Griffin  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:01 pm

    Not sure how I will get picked out of all these messages but I had to try anyway :). I would LOVE to have Dutch1, it’s very cool and reminds of my old bike that I had to leave behind when I moved to NYC. I planned to buy one before the Spring hit so that I wash away my long days of teaching 11 years olds and just ride in the breeze along the West side highway in Manhattan. This would be such an awesome bike to have where I’d add a basket on the front and occasionally stop at the various shops and take pics along the way. Oh how I want this bike! Please grant me this one wish please :)

  • 388. Tessa R  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:02 pm

    Oh I love these bikes! The Rosewood Roadster classic is SO dreamy!

  • 389. Katie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:03 pm

    would love this little dutch1 in cream….with a bell!

  • 390. Angela  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:03 pm

    the dutchi 1 in green would be so perfect for spring and summer in los angeles, especially with the adjustable rear rack for a picnic basket. I could just see myself riding this bike at the beach. :)

  • 391. Danielle  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:04 pm

    The cream Dutchi 1 is lovely and would only get lovelier with a basil bottle rear basket in pastel green. Perfect for trips to the Sunday Farmer’s Market or trips down to our favorite oyster bar in the Spring and Summertime…

  • 392. Jennifer Elliott  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:05 pm

    I’ve have been researching bikes lately as I am going to be taking the train from Dallas to UNT in Denton this upcoming Fall semester and need some classy, reliable wheels, aka a bike to get around campus!
    I have to say the classic roadster is pretty much the best choice for me- and it is described as inspired by “French and Italian cinema from the 50’s and 60’s”. Sold!

  • 393. caitlyn  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:06 pm

    The nantucket basket is so charming. It would look adorable on the cream dutchi.

  • 394. Justine  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:06 pm

    I’d love to have the cream Dutchi 1 fitted with the Brooks B67 Honey Saddle, a copper bell side striker, and the Basil Bottle rear basket in pastel green to pack yummy treats for a lunch at the beach!

  • 395. Tish  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:07 pm

    I’m a sucker for the Dutchi1 in green <3

  • 396. Bre'an  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:08 pm

    Oh my heck, it’s like you knew exactly what I have been dreaming of. I live in the city of Provo, near Salt Lake City, and I walk everywhere. I’ve been caught with the bike envy fever, as the weather here as been practically dreamy.
    No surprise that my favorite product, would be the one you’re giving away.
    The Dutchi 1 in cream would be my absolute favorite product, no doubt.
    xo

  • 397. Ashley  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:09 pm

    I love the rear wire basket – perfect for picking up flowers or transporting wine to a friend!

  • 398. Kortni  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:11 pm

    The Dutchi1 in green is unreal! What a cute set of bikes! I don’t know if I could choose just one thing from the shop, the baskets are adorable!

  • 399. Emily Whitener  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:14 pm

    Oh my, the cream Dutchi 1 with the yellow basil bottle rear basket would be sooo adorable!! I’ve been dying for a cute little bike!! SO perfect! :)

  • 400. Alex  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:14 pm

    Aw man, if I could have the Roadster in cream…Houston is a huge car city; there are not many bike friendly paths. But I don’t have a car, and I have dreamed of daring the roads on a bike on the way to work and school.

  • 401. Milan Cook  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:15 pm

    Seriously though, I was just talking about this with some of my friends! We’ve all been thinking about getting bikes to ride around on this summer! We’re all 16 and have access to cars but gas is so expensive, so this would be the bomb! The roadster in brown with the white wheels is killer! Such a great idea for a giveaway.

  • 402. Dorene  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:16 pm

    Love the Dutchi 3 Limited edition bike, perfect for a quick ride to the farmers market! Those flowers are gorgeous-love the styling!

  • 403. Casey R  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:18 pm

  • 407. Whitney M  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:27 pm

    Oh these bikes are the BEST! I’ve been looking for new wheels to cruise around the boardwalk at my new house! Every good bike needs the perfect basket. I’m loving the Nantucket Pannier Tuckernuck basket. Perfect for snacks! You can’t ride without snacks ;)

  • 408. Kate Smith  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:30 pm

    Ah I’ve been dreaming of getting a bike for this summer! The Dutchi 1 in either color (I can’t decide!) is gorgeous. I would definitely add a Nantucket basket and a Linus headlamp. Thanks!!

  • 409. Sprite  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:31 pm

    Oh goodness! I have been wishing and hoping for a bike! These are all lovely! My favorite is the Dutchi 1 in Cream, and I also love their Mixte 3 bike. Thank you for the incredible giveaway! You have such a wonderful gift of finding the beauty in life… thank you for sharing it with us! You are truly an inspiration! ❤

  • 410. Andrea Cenon  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:34 pm

    and the adjustable rear rack + the market bag would make my life crazy inspiring! hahaha

  • 411. Ashley  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:35 pm

    One look at these photos were enough to bring me out of the gloomy mood I’ve been having lately with the cold and wet weather in the Northeast. I can easily imagine riding around with the cream Dutchi1 along Riverside’s Park Promenade or in Central Park for a nice ride with the pup and fiance.

  • 412. fawn  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:36 pm

    INCREDIBLE GIVEAWAY!? THE WINNER WILL BE SO LUCKY! The green Dutchi 1 is my favorite, but the Duthchi 3 in cream is also great. (How cute are the kids’ bikes?) Seriously, best giveaway ever. Thank you and Linus for hosting. I’m crossing my fingers.

  • 413. Carrie C  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:39 pm

    Love the look for the market bag and the dutchi 1 in cream. Learning how to ride a bike was one of my new year goals the past couple of years!

  • 414. whitney  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:39 pm

    I recently opened a letterpress print studio a mile from my house after commuting an hour to my dad’s shop twice a week for 4 years! I can’t think of a better way to top off this exciting move than to have a Linus Dutchi 1 in Spring so I can bike to work! Love this giveaway so much. xoxo

  • 415. Amy F  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:39 pm

    The loveliest bikes! The Dutchi 1 in cream and basil bottle basket in pastel green make my heart melt!

  • 416. Katie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:41 pm

    I love their leather Brooks saddles, but if I won this I would get myself that gorgeous Roadster in Rosewood :-)

  • 417. Kelly  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:44 pm

    I am absolutely in love with the roadster classic! I love the rosewood coloring its a vintage look in a modern way! What a fantastic giveaway!!

  • 418. kelsie brandt  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:45 pm

    i’ve been dreaming of a cream dutchi 1 with a nantucket basket to carry all of my goodies in. the streets of denver would be better to have a bike like this cruising along them!

  • 419. Jamie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:45 pm

    i love the dutchi 1 in spring!

  • 420. Stephanie T.  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:45 pm

    How fantastic are these bikes! Ever since my bike was stolen in NYC, I’ve been hesitant to get a new one (it scarred me for life!) But now back in LA, with the sun shining, all I want to do is cruise! I especially love the market bags that Linus carries. How fantastic are those! Here’s hoping my bike faith is restored with a new snazzy Linus bike!!

  • 421. Lizzie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:48 pm

    The Roadster classic is a beaut! Add a Delano basket and I’d be set for some great rides.

  • 422. Karen S.  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:52 pm

    Loving these photos! That dutchi 1 in cream is beautiful!

  • 423. dominique  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:54 pm

    I walk to work because i don’t have a bike. I would be so excited to ride around on the dutchi 1 in either color…but green is my favorite so that’d be my pick. this is a crazy cool giveaway!

  • 424. Stacy  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:57 pm

    Um this contest is coming in perfect timing as I’ve been hoping to get a bike before I study abroad in Paris! I’m dying over the Peterboro original basket; it would be a must if I were to win the Dutchi 1! I can imagine that I could fit my days meal from the market inside of that adorable white basket, right?! please and thank you!

  • 425. Macayla Graham  |  March 19th, 2013 at 2:57 pm

    I am in LOVE with the Dutchi 1 in Spring. So adorable. I would ride that thing everywhere.

  • 430. sharon  |  March 19th, 2013 at 3:05 pm

    i really like their wire baskets. i can’t wait to fill them up with lots of treats from the farmers market (:

  • 431. Stephanie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 3:08 pm

    The dutchi 1 is a dream in cream!

  • 433. MacKenz'  |  March 19th, 2013 at 3:08 pm

    The duchi 1 in cream would be the perfect, adorable way for a college fashion major to get around instead of these crazy gas prices ;D

  • 434. Frankie!  |  March 19th, 2013 at 3:10 pm

    This is an insane giveaway. I hope I’ve got some luck on my side!

    How can you choose!? The Dutchi 1 in Cream is PERFECT. But come on…everything is ridiculous and the baskets are spot on! I was just dreaming of one of these a few days ago.

    Fingers crossed!

    The baskets from Lins Bikes are definitely my favorite things there. They’re cute, useful, and so vintage looking! Personally, I really like the dutchi 1 in beige but all of their bikes are fantastic. :3

  • 439. Criss Marie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 3:14 pm

    This would be amazing! I’ve been looking everywhere for a bike like the Dutchi 1 for Savannah — perfect for the commute to class. And the Market Bag would be ideal for those lazy weekend days at the park. Loving this giveaway!

  • 440. susie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 3:14 pm

    I wandered in the Linus shop in Venice a couple of weekends ago. These are EVEN nicer in person! I love the Dutchi 1 in Spring Green. I would definitely get one of the rear wire baskets for grocery (AND flower) shopping!

  • 441. Jenn L.  |  March 19th, 2013 at 3:16 pm

    Ugh, it’s hard to choose between either style! But I’m in love with the Roadster Classic in Rosewood, but the Dutchi 1 in Cream is adorable too. Both of them would be adorable with the rear wire basket — perfect for putting bouquets in! I’m soon to be living in the city, and this would be fantastic for commuting! Whether to class or to the farmer’s market, I can see this bike lasting me a lifetime. Thanks!

  • 442. Lauren  |  March 19th, 2013 at 3:16 pm

  • 444. Emily L  |  March 19th, 2013 at 3:17 pm

    Definitely going to have to with the roadster classic in black! I’ve been looking for a bike to get around and use my car less, but alas a poor college student and cannot find an affordable one!

  • 458. Shara  |  March 19th, 2013 at 3:36 pm

    To ride a bike in a skirt without having to lift my leg up and flash the world..that is the joy the Dutch would bring to my life!

  • 459. Alexa Sonken {The Wedding Collection}  |  March 19th, 2013 at 3:40 pm

    I love the roadster 8! I’d LOVE to win this!!

  • 460. Patricia  |  March 19th, 2013 at 3:44 pm

    I am in love with the Roadster Classic model in Rosewood. It is simple yet elegant. Two things that inspire my life, my work, and my wardrobe.
    Winning this bike would mean the world to me! I grew up in East Los Angeles in a very humble upbringing. With two working class immigrant parents working multiple jobs to support the family, I never owned a bike; let alone learn how to ride one. Most people learn how to ride a bicycle as children, I learned how to ride a bike as a 26 year old! Many people ask me, “Why didn’t you just learn as a middle schooler or high schooler?”. And that’s a good question. The reason I didn’t learn as an older youth was because I was embarrassed. It’s a mediocre excuse but its the truth. It wasn’t so much that I was embarrassed of not knowing how to ride a bike but more so that I was embarrassed of my impoverished upbringing. I have never been embarrassed or ashamed of my parents; no that was not the case. I was embarrassed of the missed opportunities and privileges that many of my peers experienced that I was not able to live.
    As an adult,I now cherish and hold my upbringing and life experiences as a badge of honor. Through my parent’s sacrifice, hard work, and numerous opportunities, I am now living a different life and living to “pay it forward.” With that said, on my 26th birthday I decided I was going to learn how to ride a bike, regardless of how ridiculous I’d look. I got an old, unwanted mountain bike from my friend, bought a bike helmet, and my bike-riding lessons began.

    Like I said, winning this contest and owning a Roadster Classic would make me the happiest girl in the world.

    Love, peace, & sunshine-
    Patty

  • 461. Dana McDowell  |  March 19th, 2013 at 3:46 pm

    I’m a big fan that the Delano basket has a spot for a drink! I would definitely like to become more mobile in my little Alaskan town…a bike and basket would be just the ticket!

  • 462. Heather  |  March 19th, 2013 at 3:52 pm

    Ever since my beach cruiser got stolen, I’ve really missed riding from Manhattan Beach to Santa Monica via The Strand!

  • 464. Jade Sheldon  |  March 19th, 2013 at 3:54 pm

    Oh my word!! This would be a dream come true! The Nantucket Adult Lightship Tapered Basket also has my eye…

    I love the yellow Basil Bottle Basket :) I would also love to win the Roadster Classic in cream. It looks so lovely and fun to ride!

  • 471. Megan  |  March 19th, 2013 at 4:03 pm

    love the roadster classic in rosewood!

  • 472. Erin M.  |  March 19th, 2013 at 4:06 pm

    The MIXTE in Sky Blue is my favorite! I’ve been itching for a bike for quite some time.

  • 473. clementina  |  March 19th, 2013 at 4:08 pm

    oh the toss up… Dutchi 8 (cream) for getting around or the Dutchi 3 Limited Edition looks simply delicious. mmmm….

  • 474. Cory  |  March 19th, 2013 at 4:10 pm

    The ‘Lil Dutchi is the coolest kids bike I have ever seen. I don’t have my own bike or a kid, but I would get it just so one day when I do have children, they can ride in style.

  • 475. Annette  |  March 19th, 2013 at 4:11 pm

    Oh my gosh. My heart DROPPED when I saw this giveaway– I’ve been pining after a bike for ages. I live in Boston, a city that’s getting increasingly friendlier to biking commuters, and for me to be able to forego the public subway to ride one of these beauties would be such a dreaaaaam. I love the Dutchi 1 in cream. It’s just perfect. And I’d totally get a basket to complete the whole look.

  • 476. Marilou  |  March 19th, 2013 at 4:12 pm

    I am in love with the dutch model in blue! It would be so perfect to wander around in Montreal of to get to work!

  • 477. Jane  |  March 19th, 2013 at 4:15 pm

    I’m so happy you posted this! It is snowing right now up in Portland, Me but I have spring and warm weather on my mind. I am absolutely in need of a new bike this year and I really love the Roadster in Rosewood. The oopsmark wallets are really fun too!

  • 478. Marilynn  |  March 19th, 2013 at 4:17 pm

    I love the Mixte 3 in Sky Blue! I’d blend right in with the beach which is where I’d take this bike all the time!

  • 479. KS  |  March 19th, 2013 at 4:17 pm

    …what cool stuff! I love their delano basket. I would put a piece of reclaimed wood at the bottom and fill it with some flowers. Then i’d be perfect!

  • 480. Brittany C.  |  March 19th, 2013 at 4:18 pm

    I live in a small town where public transportation is a the common means of transportation, or just simply walking. I have yet been able to afford such a luxury and it would mean the world to me if I would be able to win this bike. Ill ride it everywhere around town! (Go Green!)

  • 481. Brittany C.  |  March 19th, 2013 at 4:22 pm

    My favorite product of theres is the Dutchi 1. Thats one sexy bike.

  • 482. Jeline Catacutan  |  March 19th, 2013 at 4:22 pm

    Wow. Now I really wish I live in the US right now!!

  • 484. Madelyn  |  March 19th, 2013 at 4:23 pm

    The green Dutchi is fabulous! I’ve been eyeing the Linus bikes forever. So stylish!

  • 485. Morgan  |  March 19th, 2013 at 4:29 pm

    Love this giveaway! I’ve been searching for a new bike, my last one was stolen! I would love to cruise around on a new cream Roadster Classic!

  • 486. Court @ Love, Court xoxo  |  March 19th, 2013 at 4:31 pm

    EEEEEEE…the roadster classic is (for lack of a better word) classic and chic! The cream one would make a great birthday present for me since I turn 20 on the 26th!! :)

  • 487. Carrie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 4:34 pm

    Love the dutchi 1 style in spring!

  • 488. Andrea Mehner  |  March 19th, 2013 at 4:34 pm

    i LOVE the dutchi 1 in cream!

  • 489. Kristy  |  March 19th, 2013 at 4:34 pm

    The Spring Dutchi 1 is so beautiful! I actually don’t know how to ride a bike, but now that I live 2 miles from my office I am planning to learn. How amazing it would be to take it from work straight to a friends (using the oopsmark wine holder of course)!

  • 490. Ailyn  |  March 19th, 2013 at 4:37 pm

    Love, love, love the green dutchi.

  • 491. Esther  |  March 19th, 2013 at 4:48 pm

    Oh my goodness that Roadster Classic is adorable, easily my fave. I need need need a new bike for getting to work in the morning. Thanks for such an awesome giveaway!

  • 492. Rin Vi  |  March 19th, 2013 at 4:49 pm

    Oh my, what a perfect giveaway! I bike to college, and I’ve been to Linus in Venice a year ago, and test-drove some of the bikes, but in the end it was just too expensive for my student budget. I’m still dreaming about the bike until now, and here’s a giveaway for it! I’d love to get a Linus bike! I think my favorite style is the Mixte in Skyblue, although the Dutchi in cream is beautiful too though :).

  • 493. Christina P.  |  March 19th, 2013 at 4:49 pm

    I LOVE the dutchi 1 in cream! HEART! love love love. =)

  • 494. Kate M.  |  March 19th, 2013 at 4:54 pm

    I’m loving the sexy streamlines of the Roadster Classic in cream, or black. I see a couple of these bikes around Philly and ogle them like they’re a well-dressed Frenchman. I’d love to have one of these to ride around town to and from work and around to the various markets. Pretty please!!

  • 495. Annie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 4:56 pm

    Have been dreaming about a dutch bike every since my lovely wife (then fiancee) peddled the streets of amsterdam last year. (and also snuck in an engagement shoot…http://www.onabicyclebuiltfortwo.com/2011/12/engagement-shoot-amber-and-annie.htm) Love the dutchi 1 in cream. Would put a basket on the front and fill it with baguettes, sparkly wine, and flowers regularly.

  • 496. Amanda  |  March 19th, 2013 at 4:57 pm

    Beautiful pictures! I can’t wait for Spring biking :)

  • 497. Katy Dennison  |  March 19th, 2013 at 4:57 pm

    Ooooh the Dutchi1 is my most favorite for sure! I would ride all over town gathering pretty little things for a basket too :)

  • 498. Tina  |  March 19th, 2013 at 4:57 pm

    I love the rear wire basket and the roadster classic. They are all beautiful!!!

  • 499. Kathryn  |  March 19th, 2013 at 4:58 pm

    I would love to ride the Duchi1! How wonderful!
    Bike riding makes me feel like a kid. I want to race people and go on an adventure!

  • 500. Maggie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:01 pm

    Love “The Pipette” and how it just disappears into your bike frame but is there to bring your necessities on your trip! How cute is the Lil Dutchi too? I would have loved that when I was a kid!

  • 501. Jessica  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:02 pm

    Oh my I literally feel faint looking at the roadster in rosewood. Def my fave. Swoon swoon swoon. I’m short, so finding a bike to fit my frame is a challenge, especially since I’m a poor grad student and can only afford used bikes. Winning this would be a dream!! I was bummed about the Benefit giveaway but this is SO MUCH SWEETER. Gah!

  • 502. Aubree  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:05 pm

    I love the rear basket! The photo at the farmers market looks so beautiful, I would love to ride to pick up fresh flowers, fruits, and veggies!

  • 503. Heidi  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:05 pm

    These are so beautiful! I used to have a lovely green bike which I would ride every day to class. Unfortunately I asked someone to watch it for me during our honeymoon and it was mistreated and ruined. This would be the perfect replacement! I love the Dutchi in green! Thank you!

  • 504. Keisha  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:09 pm

    The Peterboro Farmers Basket is perfect! I would LOVE the Duchi1 in Cream especially with Spring right around the corner.

  • 505. Suzanna  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:14 pm

    Dutchi 1 in cream. Love it!

  • 506. Denysia  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:15 pm

    I love the Mixte 3! :)

  • 507. Heather  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:16 pm

    I love all of the bikes, but my favorite item is the rear wire basket. The bikes are charming, but the basket makes them magic.

  • 508. Sophia  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:16 pm

    I <3 the Dutch bike! When I think Dutch, I think van Gogh!

  • 509. Natalie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:17 pm

    I absolutely love the Dutchi 3 in Marine! I love the color and shape of the frame. The Nantucket Tuckernuck Tapered basket is so pretty and cute! I’ve always wanted a basket on a bike and that one is just right! Beautiful pictures btw! :)

  • 510. Jenya Alexandrovna  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:19 pm

    The Duchi in cream would be perfect for riding on the bike path here in Ventura, CA.

  • 511. Ariel  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:19 pm

    Definitely could use one of those cute wicker baskets!

  • 512. Emily S  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:19 pm

    I super love these bikes. I love them all but I’d probably go for the Duchi 1 in green. Simply because I love colorful bikes! So pretty.

  • 513. Viet  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:20 pm

    i’ve always wanted a linus! i love the dutchi :)

  • 514. Patti Murphy  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:20 pm

    I have been wanting a bike for years now!! I love the Roadster Classic in Cream! :)))

  • 515. Mackenzie Dunn  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:24 pm

    BRI!!! I have wanted a Linus bike for so long! I have gone to test drive them, daydreamed about them, have and kept my my fingers crossed that one day I will own such a pretty bike! My favorite style by far is the white Dutchi 1. So classic, simple, and elegant. I love how it rides, too; the handle bars are the perfect height! You would honestly be making my dreams come true!

  • 516. Sarah  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:25 pm

    The Dutchi 1 in spring is so cute! My bike is all rusted from the salty air here in Key West. It’s my main mode of transportation too.

  • 517. Simona Gayauskas  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:25 pm

    1. The nantucket basket is precious!
    2. Would LOVE to be styling on the venice boardwalk with the dutchi 1 bike in cream!
    Thanks for the opportunity!

  • 518. Katie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:27 pm

    Ah I need a bike so badly!! I would love the dutchi bike!

  • 519. Lauren  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:28 pm

    This is my DREAM giveaway! I have been pinning Linus bikes forever, and could only dream of being able to afford one. I live in NYC and nothing would be better than riding around on a beautiful cream Dutchi 1 all summer!! Thank you Thank you for this opportunity!

  • 520. Becca  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:30 pm

    OH MY GOODNESS. I am dying. This is such a fun giveaway! I’m crossing my fingers that I get lucky… I love the Roadster Classic. So adorable, and great to ride around town, since I have lack of a car…

  • 521. Anni  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:34 pm

    I adore the Mixte 3 – best giveaway you’ve had yet, I have all my fingers (and toes) crossed to win this one!

  • 522. Jenny  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:36 pm

    I love love LOVE the Dutchi 1! I just moved back home to Austin from Seattle and would love this bike to ride around and enjoy the beautiful Texas weather!

  • 523. Stephanie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:38 pm

    The Dutchi in green with a Delano basket would be my dream bike. I would love to cruise around my neighborhood in this bike with my corgi =)

  • 524. Jane Doe  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:39 pm

    I’ve wanted a Linus for the past year. They are so adorable! I am partial to the Classic in Cream, but I wouldn’t kick any of them out of be for eating crackers.

  • 525. Summer  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:39 pm

    I just love the Dutchi 1 in Spring! So cute!!

  • 526. Julianna  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:40 pm

    I’d love the Dutchi 1 to ride to work and the market! Thankyou for the opportunity

  • 527. Lisette  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:41 pm

    How lovely! These bikes are beautiful! I really like the Market Bag in their shop as well — simple, pretty, and utilitarian!

  • 528. Dani Du  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:50 pm

    I am in love with these bike photos! I am a Native Californian and lived in Venice for 5 years so I understand bike and beach culture and these styled Linus Bike picks are to die for! I especially love the Dutchi 3 because it allows a lady to wear a dress with out a wardrobe malfunction / peep show every time you get on and off the bike. With the lower cross bar you won’t get tangled up or be inappropriate and can still rock fun, flirty frocks! Pick me I would love this bike and that I can wear dresses while riding, because if you’re not riding in style what’s the point?!

  • 529. Minna S.  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:52 pm

    oooh! i’ve been wanting a bike for quite some time (:
    this would be perfect! the roadster bike looks awesome!

  • 530. Ryan  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:53 pm

    I love the Delano basket. I am in dire need of a bike for toddling around Studio City.

  • 531. Courtney K  |  March 19th, 2013 at 5:56 pm

    love the green dutch bike. So cute!

  • 532. mahsa  |  March 19th, 2013 at 6:06 pm

    I love the Dutchi 1 in cream. I’ve been wanting to get a bike for summer ,and this one is perfect.

  • 533. Autumn  |  March 19th, 2013 at 6:12 pm

    I’m going to have to wish for the Roadster Classic in Cream, with a Nantucket basket….any will do, they are all adorable! Also, I am going to need the round reflector mirror to complete the ensemble! Total bicycle perfection!

  • 534. jenna  |  March 19th, 2013 at 6:12 pm

    i commute to work on a bike and the harsh minnesota winter has left me in the need of a new one! i absolutely love the Dutchi 1 in green. it is splendid.

  • 535. Marie B  |  March 19th, 2013 at 6:15 pm

    I love that “Life is better on my bicycle” tee! My boyfriend would wear that proudly. I also adore the simple Walnut Bike Rack. But that roadster classic is the ultimate! LA is way more bike friendly than one might think, and I want in!

  • 536. Katie J.  |  March 19th, 2013 at 6:31 pm

    I absolutely love the “Nantucket Cisco Tapered” Basket! I had a super cute basket that looked like that and a great bike to go along with it that were both destroyed in the most recent hurricane here in New Orleans, been itching to get whole new set!

  • 537. Kina E  |  March 19th, 2013 at 6:33 pm

    As a New Englander, Peterborough Basket is so perfect. I love the classic roadster in in rosewood.

  • 538. Courtney  |  March 19th, 2013 at 6:35 pm

    Th8is is perfect, I’ve been wanting a bike to take leisurely rides on :) I haven’t had a bike since middle school! The Roadster Classic is quite pretty; it would be perfect equipped with a Nantucket basket!

  • 539. Kelly  |  March 19th, 2013 at 6:43 pm

    My favorite Linus product is the sac bag. I love it that I can hook it to my bike then carry it on my shoulder when I get to my destination. So many bike bags are so awkward to carry.

  • 540. Meghan  |  March 19th, 2013 at 6:46 pm

    Roadster Classic in black! And instead of a basket, I’d go for “The Sac” in sand/red.

  • 541. melissa  |  March 19th, 2013 at 6:48 pm

    Though not For Myself, The Lil’dutchi Is My Favorite!

  • 542. monica  |  March 19th, 2013 at 6:51 pm

    love the dutch bike! hard to choose, all the bikes are awesome!

  • 543. Rachel  |  March 19th, 2013 at 6:55 pm

    Been dreaming of a classic bike like the Dutchi in cream…would look great with a Linus headlight for those after sunset rides!

  • 544. Karis  |  March 19th, 2013 at 6:56 pm

    My best friend just got a Linus and LOVES it. My favorite is the Roadster Classic. So perfect.

  • 545. Molly Mc  |  March 19th, 2013 at 6:56 pm

    HOLY AWESOME! I’m not one to enter contests, but I have really been bugging my husband lately for a bike. I dig that Linus sells everything you could possibly want for a bike, including a child seat! Which is EXACTLY what I’ve been looking for. I want to take my wee man on rides on the trails in town. The roadster classic is perfect, and you can’t go wrong with brown! (; (;

  • 546. Aubrey  |  March 19th, 2013 at 6:57 pm

    I was planning on getting a bike this spring; it is pretty essential for us college kids! The Dutchi 1 in cream is beautiful and would be my pick! Thanks!

  • 547. Sylvie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 7:02 pm

    I want A NEW BIKE SO BADLY!! If I had a choice from the Linus website, I would choose the Dutchi 3. So in love because its perfect for my 5’3″ frame.

    ~Sylvie

  • 548. Jen W  |  March 19th, 2013 at 7:05 pm

    How gorgeous! I have obviously been doing bike rides wrong all these years. I need a basket full of florals on my next ride. And I’m kinda in love with the Linus Dutchi 1 in cream.

  • 549. JENN  |  March 19th, 2013 at 7:05 pm

    I’d love the dutch 1 in cream. It’s so dreamy and perfect for spring and summer. I’d take it to the beach and around town!

  • 550. Amy  |  March 19th, 2013 at 7:07 pm

    Oh my, this is what I need! Springtime is here and my boyfriend keeps telling me I need to get a bike so I can cruise around Phoenix with him. I browsed the amazing offerings on the site and would probably end up with the Mixte 3 if given the choice, but that Dutchi 1 – especially in the green… that would be my choice of prize!

  • 551. colleda  |  March 19th, 2013 at 7:11 pm

    Oh man! I’ve been needing a new bike for ages! The Mixte3 is right up my bike alley…my current bike is a rusty love affair with a non-shifting, bad breaking, sad little turquoise gem.

  • 552. Laura  |  March 19th, 2013 at 7:19 pm

    I love the rear wire basket! So stylish & practical! Here’s hoping for an amazing new bike!

  • 553. Alina  |  March 19th, 2013 at 7:25 pm

    I’ve been wanting a new bike for so long! They’re just so darn expensive! I would love the Dutchi 1 in cream. It’s beautiful!

  • 554. amber  |  March 19th, 2013 at 7:33 pm

    the dutchi 1 in cream with the wicker basket is my dream bike!!! such a beauty and would be perfect for rides to the farmer’s market and beach!

  • 555. lei  |  March 19th, 2013 at 7:39 pm

    do bags count? i love the market bag! so chic and would be a great masculine balance for a feminine bike. i would order this if i won one of these bikes!

  • 556. Simone Anne  |  March 19th, 2013 at 7:48 pm

    Oh my goodness!! I just adore the Roadster Classic in cream! So stylish and lovelyy!! <3

  • 557. jess  |  March 19th, 2013 at 7:50 pm

    Ohhhhh, i think the mixte 3 in sky blue wins.

  • 558. dana  |  March 19th, 2013 at 7:57 pm

    that dutchi is calling my name!! i love it!

  • 559. trina  |  March 19th, 2013 at 7:57 pm

    i’m loving the dutchi 1 in cream. so gorgeous!!!

  • 560. Bre Richison  |  March 19th, 2013 at 8:00 pm

    After moving to Portland and realizing how amazing it is to ride bikes everywhere here, I’ve been wanting a bike so badly! These Linus bikes are high quality and so stylish, would love to win one! I love the Dutch in cream and the Basil bottle rear basket :)

  • 561. Jaclyn  |  March 19th, 2013 at 8:02 pm

    I love the dutchi in spring green! I am trying to amp my workouts up by being more active so a bike would be prefect! I also just moved to Florida so I would be able to get a lot of use out of it :)

  • 562. Michaela  |  March 19th, 2013 at 8:08 pm

    I am in love with the Dutchi in cream. Sooo cute

  • 563. Kari  |  March 19th, 2013 at 8:11 pm

    I would lurrrrrv the Dutch1, in ice cream ‘cream’ pa-lease ;) Bike in time for summer, I think so! loved the flowers bursting out of the back.

  • 564. Martita  |  March 19th, 2013 at 8:14 pm

    Oooh, the Dutchi1 and Dutchi 3 are dreamy, especially in the creamy cream color! I haven’t had a bike since probably 1995, and now that I’m trying to teach my 5 year old to ride her bike, it would be good “modeling” to ride with her!

    Marty

  • 565. Claire T  |  March 19th, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    With winter still rearing its ugly head here in MN it is hard to think of biking. Or flowers. Or, well, anything besides sweaters and parkas. But soon it will be warm enough and I can’t think of a better spring celebration than scooting around on one of thes beautiful bikes. I love the Dutchi 1 in cream (so classic!) and I’m thinking the Linus headlamp would be a necessity for night rides in the summer – if it ever comes!

  • 566. TyAnna Howell  |  March 19th, 2013 at 8:19 pm

    A bike is at the top of my birthday wish list! I love the yepp mini child seats — would be so perf for my one yr. old! I think the cream Dutch 1 is to die for!!!!

  • 567. Sam  |  March 19th, 2013 at 8:21 pm

    Dutch 1 in cream is so cute!

  • 568. Becca  |  March 19th, 2013 at 8:25 pm

    I absolutely LOVE the roadster classic in cream. It’s just what a bike ought to be. And with the Delano Basket–we would be the belles of my university.

  • 569. Sophia  |  March 19th, 2013 at 8:26 pm

    Any kid who rides the lil’ bikes around the block will instantly become the coolest kid in town. Those are so neat! The Dutchi 1 style bike is just as classy!

  • 570. Marissa  |  March 19th, 2013 at 8:26 pm

    Ohhh! I just love love this. I’ve been wanting a bike incredibly bad after using a friends on a recent trip to California – the dutchi in cream would be FAB!

  • 571. Alyssa  |  March 19th, 2013 at 8:26 pm

    dying for a new bike! i bike all over austin on a beat up mountain bike as of now. whatever works!

    the roaster classic in rosewood is beautiful, and so unique! absolutely love it.

  • 572. Heidi  |  March 19th, 2013 at 8:30 pm

    The Mixti in that sky blue color is heavenly! And if I had a little one, how I would want a Linus bike for him or her!

  • 573. Stephanie Marie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 8:34 pm

    The back basket! For errands to the market and everywhere in between! http://shop.linusbike.com/collections/linus-baskets/products/the-rear-wire-basket

  • 574. Alison  |  March 19th, 2013 at 8:39 pm

    I LOVE the basil bottle rear basket in yellow. It screams spring and that’s all I want right now. To go for a spring bike ride!

  • 575. Craig  |  March 19th, 2013 at 8:41 pm

    The rosewood roadster classic with cream tires is my favorite 2 wheeled transport.

  • 576. Jenny Star Lor  |  March 19th, 2013 at 8:43 pm

    Been eyeing the Dutchi1 in cream for quite some time! This is the one for me!

  • 577. Priscilla P  |  March 19th, 2013 at 8:45 pm

    I absolutely love the Roadster Classic! It would be perfect for riding along the waterfront once Portland warms up :)

  • 578. Melissa  |  March 19th, 2013 at 8:45 pm

    You guys……the Roadster Classic in cream is AMAZING and should be accessorized with The Rear Wire Basket in teal! What a combo! It would scream sunshine and spring. Can’t wait!

    With everything going on in my life right now I would kill for a bike to just let myself feel wind in my hair. The Mixte 3 in sky blue would be that bike, even though I’m also really loving the classic roadster.

    Adore the Mixte 3 in sky blue, such a great color- would be fabulous for spring!

  • 582. Linda  |  March 19th, 2013 at 8:57 pm

    These bikes and baskets are so beautiful! I especially like the Dutchi1 in cream… I would love to ride home from the farmers market here in boulder, co with fresh flowers in my basket :)

  • 583. Brittannie  |  March 19th, 2013 at 9:03 pm

    My favorite is the Gaston 3. It’s so adorable and classic. I don’t have a bike right now and would love one to ride around my city (Long Beach). Oh my goodness, I would just die happy.
    xxoo

  • 588. Madeleine H.  |  March 19th, 2013 at 9:25 pm

    The Roadster Classic is such a beauty. Cream is definitely the best! I have been eyeing Linus bikes for a long time – they’re just darling.

  • 589. Megan Shipley  |  March 19th, 2013 at 9:26 pm

    Oh my my! The roadster classic. What a dream! Spring has officially sprung on campus and I would love to ride that to class every day!

  • 590. Candace  |  March 19th, 2013 at 9:27 pm

    the roadster classic in the cream color would just be PERFECT! i would use it to ride with my husband to this reservoir near our house where we like to have picnics! he has a bike and i’ve been dying to get one! this would just be AMAZE! =)

  • 591. Kelsey  |  March 19th, 2013 at 9:31 pm

  • 595. Cat  |  March 19th, 2013 at 9:53 pm

    I die for the Mixte 3 in cream with the pouch in green to go along!

  • 596. Amanda Rose  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:03 pm

    Wow, what an awesome company! Thanks for sharing. I love The Delano and the rear wire baskets, how would I choose should I win a bike? The Delano would be so sleek but how fun is the rear wire for carrying goodies from the farmer’s market?

    Also, if I win I would love to let my hair down on the sweet Dutchie I!

    Xo

  • 597. Madi  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:04 pm

  • 600. Brianna  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:13 pm

    The Linus roadster is my DREAM bike! How stylin would the cream colored bike with the army market bag be?? Would be a nice step up from the 30 year old bike I’m riding now :D

  • 601. Anna  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:18 pm

    I love the Roadster! I love the classic, yet modern look!

  • 602. Michelle B  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:29 pm

    Beautiful bikes!! As I am ever so hopeful to be the lucky winner, my favorite accessory from the Linus Bike shop is the Market Bag. Love the storage and that they roll up :) Thanks for the giveaway!

  • 603. Jen  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:31 pm

    I LOVE Linus bikes! Living in Venice, I spend a ton of time on my bike and use it as my main mode of transportation. My old Schwinn is near death I dream about the Dutchi1 in green as her predecessor.

  • 604. Jaimie Huynh  |  March 19th, 2013 at 10:57 pm

    The mixte3 is my faaaav!

  • 607. Laura C.  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:22 pm

    Is it ok to say that my favorite is the Lil DutchI?? How adorable!!

    Honestly, the last bike I remember was a Beauty and the Beast bike I got when I was just a little girl, handlebar streamers and all! After that, I always took my brother’s hand-me-down bikes. But it might be time to have one that I coud actually call my own. The Roadster in cream would be lovely to ride around.

  • 608. jen chii  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:26 pm

    Hmm, what to choose as a favorite????!!! Absolutely love the DUTCHI3 in marine!!! I would definitely want to accessorize with a lovely Nantucket Pannier Tuckernuck, a Crane Hand Painted Bell, and the Oopsmark Wine Holder! Thanks for this giveaway! Good luck everyone ❤

  • 609. Alex Malter  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:33 pm

    Oh my, my stomach is fluttering at even the opportunity to be in the running to win something like this. I have been wanting a bike like one of these for so long. Ahhh I would die happy.
    So my favorite thing at the Linus bikes shop: the little reflector mirror. It’s under “Accessories.” It would so complete any bike.
    If I win, I would without-a-doubt choose the dutchi 1 in cream. Beautiful.

  • 610. Courtney J.  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:46 pm

    My favorite Linus accessory is the Delano basket, which is a handlebar basket that has enough room for farmer’s market finds and even a spot for your morning cup of coffee. If selected as the Linus bike winner, I would go on so many adventures on the Dutchi1 in Spring!

  • 611. Rachel  |  March 19th, 2013 at 11:55 pm

    oh man, i would love the roadster classic!! so freakin cute. and the basil bottle rear basket is amazing. xoxo -Rachel

  • 612. Jessica  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:06 am

My fiance has been wanting a new bike for a while, that would be an awesome wedding gift to him! :) I strolled past Linus today, cute shop, lovely bikes! And I has an amazing bagel and smoothie at Local 1205! The Beauty Burst acai smoothie is AMAZING!

  • 613. Matt  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:08 am

    The Dutchi 1 in spring is really cool

  • 614. Carly  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:30 am

    The Lil Dutchi in red reminds me so much of my first real bike as kid. I will have to get my daughter one in couple of years. All Linus bikes are gorgeous!

  • 615. Heidi  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:40 am

    The Nantucket baskets and the copper bells are my favorites from the Linus shop. But of course, the bicycles steal the show. The Dutchi 1 in Spring AND Cream are both lovely.

  • 616. emeryann  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:45 am

    I have been in love with the roadster classic in cream for months now! But as a student I can’t justify the price, so hopefully I can win and be able to take a bike into school & work!

  • 617. Christina L  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:48 am

    The Roadster Classic is gorgeous! :) Love how simple and clean it is. It’d be perfect to ride everywhere.

  • 618. Helen  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:54 am

    Love the Dutch 1! Wish it came in sky blue. I’d put a basil bottle rear basket on it and ride it all over town :)

  • 619. dianne a  |  March 20th, 2013 at 1:39 am

    I would love to win the Dutchi 1 in green, it is my very favorite.

  • 620. Desi  |  March 20th, 2013 at 1:45 am

    The dutchi 1 in creme with pretty much every accessory offered would be my favorite. I have been wanting a bike pretty desperately these days. Hopefully being up at 1:30am with a cough will pay off ;)

  • 621. Kate  |  March 20th, 2013 at 2:04 am

    aww I love the roadster classic so much! the cream is beautiful and would look so good with a Delano Basket up front for a day cruising around Boulder!

  • 624. liss  |  March 20th, 2013 at 3:49 am

    the dutchi bike in white has been bookmarked on my computer for AGES but as a college student i havent been able to quite muster up the funds…this would be so perfect! amazing giveaway–crossing my fingers and toes!

  • 625. Victoria C  |  March 20th, 2013 at 4:13 am

    Gorgeous bikes! I have not heard of them before but I have been wanting a bike for the longest time! I dream of cruising to the farmer’s market on Sunday on my spring Dutchi 1 with the Nantucket Adult Lightship Tapered basket on the front and picking out all sorts of yummy veggies for the week!

  • 626. Nadia Gaudet  |  March 20th, 2013 at 4:39 am

    The Dutchi 3 speed in sage would be my pick. Super sweet giveaway!

  • 628. Sarah yvonne  |  March 20th, 2013 at 5:10 am

    I love the classic wire bottle basket! Perfect for packing a picnic and heading to the park & it doesn’t matter if your sangria spills because it’s wire not wicker. The classic roadster is such a dream bike.

    What a great giveaway!

  • 629. Erin Turner  |  March 20th, 2013 at 5:17 am

    I love the Roadster Classic w. a Nantucket Basket.

  • 630. Lauren  |  March 20th, 2013 at 5:42 am

    Love the DutchI 1 in cream. Absolutely love all the photos. The second to last photo with the flowers is just heaven. Down to her hat and the bike overflowing with all those beautiful flowers. I could totally see myself riding one of these to a farmers market a few miles from my house and just coming back feeling refreshed and ready to go. Thanks for hosting such awesome giveaways Bri!

  • 637. Carly Stotts  |  March 20th, 2013 at 6:16 am

  • 638. Lemon  |  March 20th, 2013 at 6:20 am

    The Dutchi 1 is my absolute favorite thing. I’ve been wanting to be able to join my boyfriend on bike rides for the past two years. It is a beautiful bicycle.

  • 639. Hannon  |  March 20th, 2013 at 6:25 am

    THE NANTUCKET ADULT LIGHTSHIP TAPERED BASKET TUGS AT MY HEART STRINGS. REMINDS ME OF MY GRANDMOTHER, SHE HAD A COLLECTION THAT HAS NOW BEEN PASSED DOWN TO ME. FAB PHOTOGOS AND STYLING AS ALWAYS LADIES!

  • 640. Danielle Magnuson  |  March 20th, 2013 at 6:26 am

  • 641. Caroline  |  March 20th, 2013 at 6:31 am

    How beautiful! The florals and bikes conjure up such a dreamy summer afternoon ride! I can just see the NANTUCKET ADULT LIGHTSHIP TAPERED basket form Linus strapped on the front, a little pup inside along for the ride to a farmers market – I know with such a cute bike, i wouldn’t let it go to waste! Thank you designlovefest for another inspirational post!

  • 642. Karla  |  March 20th, 2013 at 6:36 am

    The Roadster in sky blue is adorable. Would be a dream bike for sure.

  • 643. Chelse  |  March 20th, 2013 at 6:45 am

    My biggest dream {this is no joke} is to own 20 different bikes and to pedal around in the sunshine all day going to work, or getting groceries, or just laughing and enjoying. I am in deepest love with Dutchi 1 in cream. This would probaby make my entire YEAR if I won this beauty to start my collection off with such a stunner.

  • 644. Rachel C  |  March 20th, 2013 at 6:53 am

    I really like the roadster classic in cream! So pretty! :)

  • 645. Chelsey @ Pure Draft  |  March 20th, 2013 at 6:53 am

  • 650. Audrey  |  March 20th, 2013 at 7:10 am

    What a fun giveaway!

    I am loving the Delano Basket as an accessory. So much fun!

    BUT I am also in love with the green Dutchi 1. Riding around on that would be a dream!

  • 651. Jaimie  |  March 20th, 2013 at 7:25 am

    I have been looking for something like THE PIPETTE for ages! That and the NANTUCKET CISCO TAPERED are the perfect accessories for a day out on your bike! Love all the stuff on the Linus site. It’s so hard to find functional bike accessories that also reflect person style.

    Would look great on a brand new Dutchi 1. :)

  • 652. Andrea  |  March 20th, 2013 at 7:28 am

    Love, love, love the green dutchi 1! And the Nantucket adult tapered basket…oh lala! A bike would be so awesome…my little girls each have one. It would be so nice to be able to ride with them!

  • 656. Emma  |  March 20th, 2013 at 7:37 am

    I’m a bikeless, carless college kid who swoons at the thought of owning a Linus Dutchi in cream. My favorite item in their darling shop is the market bag – so genius! I would be able to get groceries other than meal plan cafeteria food! (Yay trader joe’s!)

  • 657. Sarah Snodgrass  |  March 20th, 2013 at 7:38 am

    This has been the longest, snowiest winter that I can remember (another 2 inches coming tomorrow – eek!), and I have been dreaming of a new bike for when Spring finally hits. Linus bikes are a favorite of mine; I love the classic Dutchi frames. If I had my dream bike, I would choose the Dutchi 3 in sage. If I win, I will choose the Dutchi 1 in cream – no doubt. Thanks for this awesome giveaway and for your blog which always inspires me. ~Sarah

  • 658. Grace  |  March 20th, 2013 at 7:44 am

    I love the Dutchi 3 Limited Edition! Would be the perfect bike for lazy sundays.

    Crane Riten Bell in GOLD!

  • 660. Andrea  |  March 20th, 2013 at 7:50 am

    My favorite thing is the market bag.. Very classy and old school and if I had a bike that’s what I would do. Ride it every Sunday to the farmers market.

  • 661. Lenay {Whim & Fancy}  |  March 20th, 2013 at 7:52 am

    Great minds think alike! I was just dreaming the other day of bicycle season in Colorado and how perfect it is!! Speaking of perfect, thank you so much for sharing Linus bikes and accessories – they are just what I was looking for! I love love love the rear basket and the adorable copper bell-under striker, but first, the bike! I’m totally a “Dutchi 1″ in Cream! I love the curved frame, feminine but oh so sleek. xox

  • 662. Nicole  |  March 20th, 2013 at 7:56 am

    LOVE these!! Mixte 3 is my favorite!

  • 663. Sms  |  March 20th, 2013 at 8:01 am

    My favorite is the Dutchi 3, but I’d love to win the Dutchi 1 in cream.

  • 664. Stephanie M  |  March 20th, 2013 at 8:05 am

    I love the Rear Wire Basket! It would look great on the Dutchi-1 in Green!

  • 665. courtney  |  March 20th, 2013 at 8:12 am

    yeah for bike giveaways! perfect way to ring in SPRING! i love the dover5 and the mixte8!

  • 666. krissy  |  March 20th, 2013 at 8:15 am

    I love the Pouch bag and the Rear Wire Basket is too cute! I think I would die of happiness if I won this bike…mine got stolen last June while I was at work and I haven’t been able to replace it yet. Keeping my fingers crossed I get to buy a new supersecure bike lock to keep one of these purty Linus bikes safe.

  • 667. Stephanie (afunhouse)  |  March 20th, 2013 at 8:17 am

    Oh, winter has been SO long here in the midwest. That mixte3 in sky blue is my fave but the roadster in rosewood is also a dream- just in time as spring is rumored to be inching my way! Thanks for the fabulous giveaway!

  • 668. Ashley H.  |  March 20th, 2013 at 8:18 am

    I love the idea of [finally] being able to ride a bicycle with my boyfriend around the city! Linus’ lineup of products are gorgeous! I love the look and practicallity of the “Market Bag” – it’s oh so cool in navy! I think it’d look just perfect on the roaster classic! :)

  • 669. Rebecca  |  March 20th, 2013 at 8:24 am

    The Roadster Classic in Rosewood looks just like the old bike my mother used to ride (my sister has it now) – it’s still rollin’ :)

    Thanks for the giveaway guys!

  • 670. Samantha  |  March 20th, 2013 at 8:26 am

    I’m planning on getting my first bike this summer and have been looking at Linus bikes! I really like the classic and clean look of their bikes. I would pick the roadster classic (red or cream) or the mixte 3 (cream). I would love to commute around the city on one of these!

  • 673. lolo  |  March 20th, 2013 at 8:32 am

    the market bag would look so so great on the dutchi 1 rollin’ down the streets of downtown denver.

  • 674. Meredith  |  March 20th, 2013 at 8:42 am

    I have to say that my favorite product on their site is the Dutchi 1 bike in white – what an awesome and slightly retro way to get around!

  • 675. Mia kunyo  |  March 20th, 2013 at 8:46 am

    The market bag is brilliant. I am in serious need of a bike this spring as I just sold my jeep for environmental reasons. I loved that old jeep. http://shop.linusbike.com/products/the-linus-market-bike-bag

  • 676. Kat  |  March 20th, 2013 at 9:02 am

    I absolutely adore the Linus Pouch and I think it would go great with the Roadster Classic in cream! Nothing screams spring and summer like bike rides to the farmer’s market, parks, etc. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE this!

  • 677. Kirstin  |  March 20th, 2013 at 9:09 am

    Roadster Classic in Cream. Oh my goodness yes! I’m a traveling florist and this would be helpful/lovely addition to my buisness!! What a great giveaway!

  • 678. Casey  |  March 20th, 2013 at 9:12 am

    love the linus story! “you’re floating a little from the wine you drank at lunch… maybe instead of going back to the office you’ll take a nap under a tree, go for a swim in the sea or drop by your lover’s house…” exactly! i like the dutchi3 in marine for riding the hilly streets of laguna beach or in the wine country!

  • 679. AD  |  March 20th, 2013 at 9:28 am

    LOVE the dutchi 1 in green. Have been wanting a bike for soooo long, thanks for the chance! :)

    I heard about Linus bikes a while back, and I absolutely love the Dutchi 1 in cream.

  • 681. brigid  |  March 20th, 2013 at 9:58 am

    this would be too perfect! my birthday is just around the corner on march 29th and a bike is at the very top of my list! i couldn’t believe it when i saw this giveaway. how serendipitous would this be! i live in nyc and, without a car, i’ve always wanted to have a bike as an alternative to public transportation — plus it’s great way to stay in shape and save the environment to boot! i LOVE linus bikes! i first spotted one on a blog last spring and have pined after one ever since — in fact, i’ve had the dutchi 3 in cream bookmarked on my computer ever since! this would be a dream come true! fingers crossed!

  • 682. Jess the Mess  |  March 20th, 2013 at 9:58 am

    p.s. i love the delano basket – it has a cup holder!

  • 685. jamie y.  |  March 20th, 2013 at 10:09 am

    I absolutely adore the Dutchi 3 Limited Edition!! So classy yet rugged.

  • 686. joanna strauss  |  March 20th, 2013 at 10:10 am

    i am digging the cream dutchi 1 :)

  • 687. Jessica  |  March 20th, 2013 at 10:10 am

    These bikes are a dream. The first thing that caught my eye is that adorable lil’ roadster in red- I can just imagine the pictures I would take of my nephew cruising!

  • 688. Dana  |  March 20th, 2013 at 10:16 am

    The Roadster Classic in cream is *gorgeous*. Love it! I’ve been looking for a new bike so we can do family bike rides again with the kids–I’d definitely be doing it in style on a Linus bike!

  • 689. Beth  |  March 20th, 2013 at 10:18 am

    At first I thought ooh I love the roadster classic then oh no I love the dutchi! they are all good looking bikes and i’d be so lucky to own one!

  • 690. Chic Gift Guide  |  March 20th, 2013 at 10:19 am

    I love the nantucket tuckernuck tapered basket! It reminds me of my Dad’s antique fishing basket that he would use when he took me and my sister fishing in the summers! Oh the memories! It would go perfectly with the Dutchi 1 in cream : ) xx Kel

  • 691. Ellen  |  March 20th, 2013 at 10:23 am

    I love the cream colored Duchi 1! The sleek and simple style of it makes it really picturesque!

  • 692. Michelle Perenchio  |  March 20th, 2013 at 10:43 am

    I’m dreaming of the Peterboro Farmers Basket on the Dutchi 1 in Spring! Why do I want to win a Linus so badly (other than the obvious fact they are absolutely adorable)? Here’s a rather funny visual for you: I currently ride a borrowed 1970 Schwinn that was purchased for my boyfriend. He is a staggering 6’5″. Why does this matter? Well, I am a whoppin’ 5’2″. My feet can’t touch the ground. So on our rides to the local market, the beach, and the fun outdoor patios we spend many days on, I have to scope out a patch of grass or pile of soft sand to pretty much topple over into! It’s quite entertaining to witness I’m sure! I have the added bonus of carrying (yes, dangling bags of fruits/vegetables/wine from my arms). I would be delighted to finally have a bike of my own! I can only imagine how many lovely adventures we’d have together on our cruisers! Thanks Bri & Linus! xxo

  • 693. MelissaW  |  March 20th, 2013 at 10:50 am

    Super cute bikes! I love the market bag too. If I win, I’d get the dutchi ! in Pantone color of the year, green!

  • 694. michelle  |  March 20th, 2013 at 11:02 am

    Linus is so charming! i could so see myself toting my kids behind me on the cream Dutchi with farmer market goodies in the Peterboro Farmers Basket and my camera packed in the navy blue satchel.

  • 695. Hillary  |  March 20th, 2013 at 11:03 am

    I would love the dutchi1 in green! Add a basket and I would be biking in style!

  • 696. Elyse G.  |  March 20th, 2013 at 11:03 am

    The Dutchi 1 is my dream bike! I’m especially obsessed with it in Spring. *fingers crossed*

  • 697. ebonyh  |  March 20th, 2013 at 11:05 am

    There’s so much to love on the site! But, beyond the bikes of course, my favorites are the Market Bag, the Linus Headlamp, and the brass and copper under ringer bells. Thanks for the great contest!

  • 698. caroline  |  March 20th, 2013 at 11:09 am

    love all their bikes! It would be great to have one that i can casually ride around on my college campus!

  • 699. Grace  |  March 20th, 2013 at 11:12 am

    Love the Dutchi style with the Nantucket basket. So sweet!

  • 700. Erica  |  March 20th, 2013 at 11:20 am

    i love the basil bottle rear basket, and the win of my choice would be the Dutchi 1, in Spring green. beauties! my current bike is beautiful & turquoise, but it’s british mid-century, so it weighs a hundred pounds, seems like.

  • 701. Katie B.  |  March 20th, 2013 at 11:35 am

    i’m head over heels for the dutchi bike in spring! my bike was stolen a few months ago, so i’d be oh-so-grateful to acquire a new one. these san francisco hills are begging for some action.

  • 702. Kathleen  |  March 20th, 2013 at 11:36 am

    A dutchi in cream with a basket is my absolute dream! Would love to win this.

  • 703. Blake  |  March 20th, 2013 at 11:37 am

    I’m dying over these gorgeous shots! Those ranunculus…swoon! Oh, about that bike. The roadster classic is beautiful (and in black to keep it classy, of course). Xo!

  • 704. Mai Fink  |  March 20th, 2013 at 11:49 am

    The Nantucket Adult Lightship Tapered basket is very lovely. Would pair perfectly with the Dutchi 1. What a fun giveaway!

  • 705. Courtney  |  March 20th, 2013 at 11:50 am

    I love the Peterboro Farmers Basket. I could use it when I cruise to the farmers’ market near my house-on my new bike!

  • 706. Sally  |  March 20th, 2013 at 11:54 am

    Ahhhdjfsldfs!!!!! Definitely the Dutchi in green! With a basket, it’d be a dream come true! I’ve been eying it for ages! With a new city on the horizon, this would be perfect for exploring…

  • 707. Vanessa  |  March 20th, 2013 at 11:56 am

    Oh gosh, I would LOVE a bike like this. Here in Portland OR you gotta have a bike to fit in :) I LOVE the Dover 5 but any of them would be fantastic!

    Fingers crossed!

  • 708. Caitlin W  |  March 20th, 2013 at 11:56 am

    My husband and I are relocating to a very bike friendly town and I would love love to ride the dutchi around my new neighborhood!!!!

  • 709. Kara  |  March 20th, 2013 at 11:58 am

    i have been wanting a new bike for so long now! i bought myself one two summers ago and wasn’t happy with how it rode, so i returned it and have yet to find another one. i walk to work every day and would love to ride one of these with one of those beautiful baskets, too! the dutchi 1 in cream is so pretty. good luck to everyone!

  • 710. Paige K.  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:00 pm

    I love the Dutchi 1 in Cream! I start at the University of California, Davis in the fall which is one of the most bicylce-friendly cities in the country and I’m going to need a bike to get around! :)

  • 711. Margeaux  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:02 pm

    WOW! This is the best giveaway. I have been eyeing these bikes for years!
    The Market bag is to die for! I love the sand version.

  • 712. Erin  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:04 pm

    Loving the Dutchi 8 in black!! Would be perfect to ride around Brooklyn once the weather warms.

  • 713. Anonymous  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:06 pm

    The rear wire basket is the sort of thing that dreams are made of! Having just moved from the least bike-friendly city on earth (São Paulo) to one of the most (Minneapolis) I could totally see myself making biking a blissful, viable means of taking care of business, especially with one of those gorgeous bikes from Linus.

  • 714. Meg  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:07 pm

  • 715. Lee  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:08 pm

    i have been lusting over a linus bike for about a year, maybe more, but haven’t been able to swing it. I love the cream roadster classic! I also love the basil bottle rear basket! Yay for pretty posts and give aways :)

  • 716. Ashley  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:09 pm

    + creamy dutchi 1

    + i just moved to the beautiful brick and cobblestone streets of Boston. i have been longing for a gorgeous bicycle that not only makes my ride to work smooth but also makes me feel just as pretty as the bicycle itself is!

    + with this, i would purchase their nantucket adult lightship tapered bicycle basket! for lovely spring flowers to bring home for my little downtown apartment <3

  • 717. Ry Pepper // Arts & Dafts  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:10 pm

    I LOVE these bikes. Love. And I’ve been lusting after a new city bike lately. If I won one of these beauties, I would HAVE to get a market bag to go with. Definitely my favorite thing in their shop aside from the actual bikes…

  • 718. Nicole Dao  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:11 pm

    Love the Classic Roadster in cream! I live in D.C., and a bike like this would be perfect for riding in the city.

  • 719. Kelsey Blackman  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:12 pm

    I would love to win a Dutchi 1 in cream. It’s the perfect fit for me! My husband and I relocated recently and I had to leave my bike, which has been with me since college, behind. Since I work from home, riding my bike around town on breaks was always my favorite pass time. However, since we moved I have mostly stayed in doors. A new Linus bike (something I’ve dreamed about for years) would be perfect! Thanks for the opportunity to enter!

  • 720. Ainsley A  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:12 pm

    Dutchi 1 in cream!! Oh how I love it. I would get a rear wire basket to make it all the dreamier!

  • 721. Allison  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:12 pm

    I absolutely adore the Dutchi 1 in cream! I’ve been looking for a new bike for months now since mine was stolen last summer. Living at the beach, one of my favorite past times is cruising the boards.

  • 722. Erica  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:15 pm

    My biz partner Liz has the classic Dutch. I’m dying for something similar to cruise around Brooklyn. With Natucket basket (of course). … I need a sidecar for my dog!

    erica @ tinseltwine

  • 723. Amy S  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:16 pm

    I love the Dutch1 – in green!

  • 724. Julia Wilson  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:16 pm

    Thanks so much for introducing me to Linus Bikes! Obsessed with the cream Dutchi 1. Would be so amazing to have a bike in Boston and save myself from walking 10 miles a day! Also would be great at the beach!

  • 725. Lindsay Jo Design  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:17 pm

    I don’t live too far from work and I have been jonesing for a new bike to start commuting on the days I don’t have school. It’s finally starting to heat up in Florida, so I can ride by bike in the warm weather and not worry about the sun going down at 5:30pm. I would love the Roadster in creme, but my favorite thing on the site has to be the mandarin and black steel saddle – a pop of color would be perfect on any bike!

  • 726. Sahra Harvin  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:18 pm

    I love the Roadster Classic and Roadster Sport bikes! They look just like the vintage Raleigh bike I used have, but mine got stolen last month :(. I was planning on buying a Raleigh with my tax return. Both Roadster bikes would be perfect for riding around the neighborhood and to and from class! The rear wire basket would be perfect for carrying my bookbag!

  • 727. Julia  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:18 pm

    OHMY! How gorgeous! I have been eyeing these bikes for a while now…dreaming about all the adventures I would have. *sigh*

  • 728. Kate Franzman  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:18 pm

    These bikes are so dreamy, especially the Dutchi 1 in green. Who doesn’t want to take their bike with a good book and picnic out to the park on a sunny day? Thanks for the chance!

  • 729. Sherrie G.  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:19 pm

    I would love that Dutchi 1 in Forest with the Peterboro Farmer’s Basket – perfect for biking to one of LA’s many excellent Farmer’s Markets! Hey, throw a bell on there too, just for fun’s sake!

  • 730. Kasia  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:20 pm

    My favorite bike is the dutchi! I’d love to win a bike for college!

  • 731. Audi  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:21 pm

    I’ve been on the lookout for a nice cruiser to take on summer rides with my husband for a while now! The teal wire basket would go nicely with the cream Dutch. Perfect for our weekly farmer’s market outings!

  • 732. Charis  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:23 pm

    My boyfriend has been trying to get me to ride bikes around the city with him…I said only if I find a cute bike! I LOVE the Dutchi 1…the hardest part would be choosing which color!!

  • 733. Danya  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:24 pm

    Love the Dutchi bike in Green. So amazing!

  • 734. emily  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:25 pm

    Oh my heavens! I live in Huntington Beach and have been DYING for a sweet bike to ride around the beach! I love Dutchi1 in spring and Dutchi3 in sage! And then with their wire basket!… If only I can be cool enough to have one of these bikes!

  • 735. Kaycee  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:26 pm

    Of course i like the dover 5! Still, the Dutchi 1 is just as amazing. I’ve been hunting for a new bike, this would mean the world to me!

  • 736. Pegah  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:27 pm

    I would so love to have this bike. I have been ridding my sisters bike for a while and she wants a back now. Please I need a bike….with an adjustable rear rack please.

  • 737. Kimberly M  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:27 pm

    I’ve been wanting a bike for soooo long! The dutchi 1 in cream is divine! Thanks for the contest!

  • 738. jordan  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:29 pm

    I think i would look pretty cute riding around this summer on a cream Dutchi 1…with a black brass bell…and maybe those cool wooden grip handles – ding ding!

  • 739. Amanda K  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:32 pm

    Oh my gosh! I would LOVE one of those bikes! I love the Dutchi 3 Limited Edition.

  • 740. Tracey  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:32 pm

    So many great accessories in that shop! I love the Peterboro Original Basket and the brass bell. The dutchi 1 is maybe the most adorable bike I’ve ever seen!

  • 741. amelia  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:33 pm

    ohhhh first day of spring, and all I want to do is ride. The spring Dutchi would look awesome with the Nantucket Adult Lightship Tapered Basket, with our lil’ Pom pup hanging out, cruising down Alki Beach in West Seattle!

  • 742. Amanda Bowman  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:36 pm

    I love the Dutch 1 in cream! Summer won’t be here in Alaska for another month or two. I would love to cruise around on this bike when it gets here! I’ve been wanting a bike for a while so I can bike to work and school:) Thanks!

  • 743. sarah  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:39 pm

    the Dutchi8 in cream is my fav for sure! Then I would have to trick it out with a market bag, a brass bell, some leather hand grips….

  • 744. Ennis  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:42 pm

    Love the roadster in cream! So cute!

  • 745. Anna Z  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:46 pm

  • 746. Raquel  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:46 pm

    I love the Mixte 3, the blue is so sweet!

  • 748. mia L.  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:51 pm

    Falling in love with the dutchi 1 in green! Perfect for this upcoming Spring weather!

  • 749. Shan  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:53 pm

    I LOVE the Linus Bikes!!! I love the Dutchi collection it would be great to be able to ride a bike with my son instead of just watching him from the bench at the park. I also love the satchel and headlamp and many other things from their shop!

  • 750. Kathleen  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:53 pm

    I love the walnut bike rack! The Dutchi 1 in spring is so pretty! I would definitely attach a basket to complete the look!

  • 751. Tessa  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:54 pm

    I’m moving to a city where everyone rides bikes this summer, and I don’t have a bike! The Mixte 3 in cream is amazing! ♥

  • 752. Kathy  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:59 pm

    I love the Dutchi and my hubby loves the Roadster Classic!

  • 753. Allison  |  March 20th, 2013 at 12:59 pm

    I love the roadster in black! Been dying for a new bike. Thanks!

  • 754. the chronic utilitarian  |  March 20th, 2013 at 1:00 pm

    love the dutchi 1! nice lines and i need a bike to go to the river this summer.

    thank you for the giveaway!

  • 755. Alex  |  March 20th, 2013 at 1:06 pm

    The Dutchii 1 in cream is so dreamy. I haven’t had a bike in about 5 years and I miss riding one badly. Sidenote the photos in this post are beautiful, love the bike covered in flowers!

  • 756. bethany  |  March 20th, 2013 at 1:07 pm

    after having 4 (seriously 4!) bikes stolen in brooklyn, i would be so excited to win the linus roadster classic bike in cream! I also love the bell in alloy silver! (i would also lock it up in the most heavy duty lock available! :) )

  • 757. Ashlyn  |  March 20th, 2013 at 1:07 pm

    The Basil Bottle Rear Basket in Teal looks smart to me, in more ways than one—and would look even smarter on the side of a Roadster Classic in Cream. :) I currently live in a small beach town, and my new husband and I are planning a move to NYC soon, so getting a bike for the transition from beachy summer to city fall would be amazing, especially while we’re saving up for the move. All around, big fan of Linus. Thanks for introducing them here!

  • 758. kristian roberts  |  March 20th, 2013 at 1:08 pm

    Farmer’s market weather is right around the corner. I cannot imagine a more stylish way to get there than the Dutchi 1. Both the cream and the green are so charming. i’m not sure how I would decide;) Fingers crossed!!

  • 759. Brittany  |  March 20th, 2013 at 1:08 pm

    *YEEP!* I’ve been wanting a bike for years, how perfect would that be! The Dutchi 1 in Spring is gorgeous.

  • 760. Kellie Liu  |  March 20th, 2013 at 1:08 pm

    my favorite is the cream the Dutchi 1!

  • 761. Meghan  |  March 20th, 2013 at 1:08 pm

    Oh man. I LOVE the Dutchi 1 in green! If I won this bike, it would seriously change my life.

  • 762. Heather  |  March 20th, 2013 at 1:11 pm

    I love the Dutchi in cream – such a classic – would love to spend all summer riding it around!

  • 763. erica  |  March 20th, 2013 at 1:12 pm

    LOVING the dutchi! these are so beautiful.

  • 764. Hannah  |  March 20th, 2013 at 1:28 pm

    My favorite is the roadster 8 in metallic blue! Since that’s off the table, I’d choose the roadster classic in cream – lovely!

  • 765. Lauren Zahn  |  March 20th, 2013 at 1:31 pm

    The cream DUTCH 1 is the CUTEST. This would be the best way to roll into spring;)

  • 766. Anonymous  |  March 20th, 2013 at 1:32 pm

    the duchi 1 in that white is devine!!!!

  • 767. Jackie  |  March 20th, 2013 at 1:34 pm

    I love that dutchi 1 in cream is like a dessert

  • 768. Dana  |  March 20th, 2013 at 1:35 pm

    I love Linus. I’d stop by the shop every time I went to Abbot Kinney. It always broke my heart to walk away without a beautiful new bike. I love the cream roadster classic. So gorgeous!

  • 769. Ruthy Effler  |  March 20th, 2013 at 1:35 pm

    I love the Dutchi 1 in green. My bike was stolen recently and winning this sweet ride would seriously put some bounce in my step (er, pedaling?). Sure beats the NYC subway!

  • 770. josephine  |  March 20th, 2013 at 1:36 pm

    My eye immediately fell for the Dutchie Limited edition, but honestly I would be happy with any of them. The Dutchie 1 is cute in either color.

  • 771. Jodi  |  March 20th, 2013 at 1:38 pm

    i would love the dutchi 1 in cream! thanks for the chance!

  • 772. steph t.  |  March 20th, 2013 at 1:39 pm

    My hubby and I recently relocated within 3.0 miles of my work!(he’s home-based) leaving my hour-each-way-i’m-growing-old-in-my-car freeway commute in the dust! We’ve been budgeting for a new bike for me to ride to work with the extra cash saved from living/working/thriving close to home. My bike is sad. I’ve ridden to work and it’s a mess – walking home with flat tires or gears stuck. Discouraged, I’ve given up for now, driving way more often than I should.
    Winning a masterpiece Linus Bike would truly complete my locavore transformation, I could ride everywhere!
    I can just imagine my perma-grin coupled with The DUTCH 1 in green complete with a Nantucket basket, brass bell in black, and handlebar bottle cage mount (what?!) Thanks for the opportunity!

  • 773. Erin  |  March 20th, 2013 at 1:40 pm

    I love the Dutchi bike and that lovely cream color! I would so much rather be riding around Chicago on a bike than crammed into crowded public trans.

  • 774. Gabby  |  March 20th, 2013 at 1:40 pm

    My favorite is the Dutchi 1 in cream. It’s so classic and dreamy! I think it would be stellar to bike on over to a farmers market, pick up fresh fruits and veggies, throw them in “the market bag” and ride on home with the wind in my hair!

  • 775. Marci  |  March 20th, 2013 at 1:46 pm

    I LOVE the Dutch classic with the rear wire basket. So classic. This bike would be perfect for riding around my hometown in Richmond, VA (we love bikes here)!

  • 776. Jenn J.  |  March 20th, 2013 at 1:52 pm

    I’d love the Dutchi1 in green plus a Nantucket Basket and Wine Holder. This would be the perfect vehicle to us when heading to my “supper club” with girlfriends :) The wine holder would come in especially handy!

  • 777. Katie  |  March 20th, 2013 at 1:53 pm

    The Dutchi 1 cream bike is on my dream wishlist. I’d love a bike so I can start riding to class, and these are absolutely stunning!

  • 778. CarrieVThayer  |  March 20th, 2013 at 1:54 pm

    I’d love the Dutch1 in green so I can ride with my kids around our neighborhood!!

  • 779. Kelsey  |  March 20th, 2013 at 1:57 pm

    The dutchi 1 in cream is my absoulute dream bike! I’ve been riding a handmedown bike for a long time – this bike would be a dream come true!

  • 780. Megan  |  March 20th, 2013 at 2:01 pm

    I just moved to Portland and am bikeless! I love the cream Dutchi1.

  • 781. Meg  |  March 20th, 2013 at 2:07 pm

    Both of these bikes are amazing! March 26th happens to be my 28th birthday! I would love either of these bikes – as biking to my work (which is only 4.5 miles from my house) is on my life list. I have used the first few months of 2013 to get healthier – cutting hormones from my life and food, spending more time outside, etc.. This would be an amazing addition to all of that. The best part would be buying one of the brass bells! Nothing like the sound of a bike bell to make you happy.

  • 782. Jennifer v  |  March 20th, 2013 at 2:07 pm

    Oh the green Dutchi1 is just the object of perfection; I’ve had a similar one on a Pinterest board ever since mine got stolen. How sweet. I’d love to cruise down Lake Michigan on one of these. What a dream.

  • 783. Karen Crilly  |  March 20th, 2013 at 2:13 pm

    I’ve always imagined one day zooming around the countryside on a beautiful green bike, pretending I’m straight out of an Enid Blyton book, unfortunately I live in the city and much to my sons disgust use his ugly bike to travel to work.
    The Dutch1 would be much better suited ( I can even wear a skirt!)

    Biking is such a beautiful way to escape to the outside world of breezes & warm sunshine. I adore the Dutchi1! Looks like a perfect way to break in the new spring season! :D

  • 785. Sara Nicely  |  March 20th, 2013 at 2:21 pm

    The stars have aligned! This is my dream contest come true! I have been wanting a Linus bike for over a year. I need a sleek and safe bike for my commute from Berkeley to San Francisco and for coasting beachside with my pup Pootietang. The Roadster Classic in Cream is my all time fav.

  • 786. Teresa  |  March 20th, 2013 at 2:25 pm

    The teal basket is adorable. I’m moving to Colorado. I need a bike!

  • 787. MF  |  March 20th, 2013 at 2:25 pm

    Oh my! Dreaming of the cute outfits to go with the green Dutch bike! Of course it needs to warm up here in Chicago to really max out the cute attire for biking! :)

  • 788. Linds-E  |  March 20th, 2013 at 2:28 pm

    I just moved to a big city and before we moved we sold one of our cars leaving us with only ONE. I DESPERATELY need a bike! And I desperately love the Dutch1 in SPRING! It’s my favorite on the website! (There’s also SO MANY BEAUTIFUL bike trials here, not mountain trails, but 30+miles of park trails by the river…I want I want).

  • 789. Andria  |  March 20th, 2013 at 2:28 pm

    The market bag is such a cute accessory. I really need a new bike, too (Hi, Dutchi). I’m moving to a new city that is crazy bike friendly and I want to join in on the party!

  • 790. Samantha  |  March 20th, 2013 at 2:33 pm

    i’ve been wanting to get back into riding a bike. The Dutchi 1 in cream looks like a great one!

  • 791. Amanda  |  March 20th, 2013 at 2:34 pm

    The Dutchi 1 in cream is SO gorgeous. The perfect little venice beach bike, isn’t it? Happy sigh.

  • 792. Amanda Pritchard  |  March 20th, 2013 at 2:40 pm

    I LOVE the Roadster Classic! Especially the creamy color with mahogany colored frame. It has such a classic look to it. It reminds me of “Dead Poet’s Society”. I REALLY need a bike too.. so pick me. xoxo

  • 793. Cheri  |  March 20th, 2013 at 2:43 pm

    I would to have the dutchi 1 in cream! So perfect for the upcoming summer!

  • 794. Lauren M.  |  March 20th, 2013 at 2:45 pm

    I love the Dutchi 1 in cream! So pretty and perfect for Spring.

  • 795. Alyssa  |  March 20th, 2013 at 2:46 pm

    I like the Linus Headlamp. So classy looking.

  • 796. Heather  |  March 20th, 2013 at 2:50 pm

    I love, love, LOVE all things Linus. I’d have to say the roadster classic and the rear wire basket would be the ideal companions for my daily commutes to work, school, and the grocery store! With 300 days of sun in my hometown of Denver, a bike like that would see many, many miles of love!

  • 797. Ana  |  March 20th, 2013 at 2:50 pm

    My favorite item would have to be “the pouch.” It would look so cute on the Dutchi 1, in cream! I just interviewed for a job that’s about 10min from my new condo. If I were to get the job, the Dutchi would get me there quick- all with my work shoes in the pouch!

  • 798. Erica  |  March 20th, 2013 at 2:55 pm

    Just got on the market for a new bike after I sold my beautiful Bianchi race bike that saw me through two terrible accidents. Am looking for more of a chill bike instead of racing around town. In love with the Dutch1 in cream!!!

  • 799. Michal  |  March 20th, 2013 at 2:59 pm

    Eeeek! The roadster classic in cream is such a beautiful bike. I love it. I also love the basil bottle rear basket. I want it in yellow to match my burgundy and yellow Schwinn!

  • 800. Cayt  |  March 20th, 2013 at 3:01 pm

    DREAMING of the cream Dutchi 1 – these bikes are sooooo lovely and would be the perfect match for my resolution this year to bike more! It would be the prettiest way to travel to and from the farmer’s market with baskets full of flowers, fruits and vegetables to keep me company for the week to follow. Happy to have been introduced!!

  • 801. Mackenzie  |  March 20th, 2013 at 3:01 pm

    I’ve been trying to get more exercise, and the dutchi 1 in spring would be the perfect motivation to get out there and get healthy. I’d be so happy if you picked me!

  • 802. Emily K.  |  March 20th, 2013 at 3:01 pm

    Loooove the Dutchi 1 in green – perfect for Spring and Summer! Throw a basket on that baby and head to the farmer’s market!

  • 803. Gaby  |  March 20th, 2013 at 3:01 pm

    i LOVE the roadster classic in white. it is perfect for trips to the beach this summer!

  • 804. Molly  |  March 20th, 2013 at 3:01 pm

    The Basil Bottle Basket is my favorite – the colors are bright and would be the perfect compliment to the dutchi 1 in cream. Lovely!

  • 805. Anna  |  March 20th, 2013 at 3:04 pm

    My favorite is the Dutchi 1 in cream! I want to ride it to the farmer’s market on a beautiful day :)

  • 806. Sarah  |  March 20th, 2013 at 3:13 pm

    J’adore the Mixte 8 – the perfect mix of femininity & functionality!

    I’d LOVE the Roadster Classic!!!

    S.

  • 807. Adam  |  March 20th, 2013 at 3:18 pm

    Winning this bike would mean the ultimate 5 year anniversary gift for my wife – we could finally cruise down to the beach together – and the cream Dutch bike with a basket for a french bulldog would make my wife ecstatic

  • 808. Kristen  |  March 20th, 2013 at 3:24 pm

    I really love the roadster classic. I’ve been coveting it for months!

  • 809. Christina Marie  |  March 20th, 2013 at 3:50 pm

    I lurve the Dutchi 1 in Spring. why, hello gorgeous!

  • 810. Lindsey H  |  March 20th, 2013 at 3:50 pm

    I’ve always wanted to own a Linus Bike! I would love to ride around town on that Dutchi with that adorable teal wire basket holding all of my essentials.

  • 811. Sara McCann  |  March 20th, 2013 at 3:52 pm

    I have never owned a bike. Ever. And seeing this giveaway made me do cartwheels! I’m going to be enrolled in a University soon and I’m not taking a car with me. The Dutchi 1 bike in cream would be a wonderful addition to my “Things I Need To Bring To College” list. <3

    http://www.linusbike.com/models/dutchi-1/

  • 812. Vanessa  |  March 20th, 2013 at 3:57 pm

    I’m loving the Dutchi 1 in Spring, it’s adorable! I’m in dire need of a new bicycle and regardless of if I win, this bike is going on my wish list.

  • 813. Kim  |  March 20th, 2013 at 4:01 pm

    I’ve been wanting a new bike!! I don’t have one right now. I love the green dutchi 1. Love all the cool linus accessories too!

  • 814. Emily Hazzard  |  March 20th, 2013 at 4:03 pm

    what a coincidence, i was just looking at bikes online a few minutes ago! i love that classic roadster in cream, but it only comes in my size in the rosewood – which is still awesome. what a pretty set of photos and great giveaway!

  • 815. madeleine  |  March 20th, 2013 at 4:08 pm

    Oh wow! My beloved bike was stolen recently and I’ve just started to look for a new one! The dutchi 1 in that awesome green is the coolest!

  • 816. Melanie  |  March 20th, 2013 at 4:19 pm

    AMAZEBALLS. I indeed HAVE been wanting/needing a new bike : ) Green Dutchi all the way!!

    The design of all of their bikes is amazing, actually. I’m especially loving the lil’ linus line! And oh dear all the accessories! I’d probably have to pimp mine out with a rear rack, copper bell, colored basket and….key chain knife?

    YEP.

  • 817. Katie  |  March 20th, 2013 at 4:20 pm

    I love the Dutch 1 in green. I see I’m not alone :). I have a goal of biking my so.a to school everyday beginning next year and this would certainty set the BA in motion. :)

  • 818. Kay Lee  |  March 20th, 2013 at 4:21 pm

    i’m OBSESSED with the Linus Rear Wire Basket! Would tote all my farmers’ market goods in it! Crossing my fingers! :)

  • 819. Arianne  |  March 20th, 2013 at 4:26 pm

    I love that Dutchi bike in green! I’ve been pining for a bike; I haven’t had one of my own since like junior high. I would also get the adjustable bike rack and get a baby seat (an helmet) for my baby boy!

  • 820. Kate Marinchak  |  March 20th, 2013 at 4:30 pm

    The Dutch 1 bike in the beautiful “Spring” Green is my favorite product of Linus Bikes! The green is a great pop of color, greatly paired with any occasion or outfit! A bike like this would be an absolute dream to have for riding to and from school while carrying all my books and supplies!

  • 821. Stasia  |  March 20th, 2013 at 4:35 pm

    A copper bell and any of the gorgeous baskets on a Mixte bike (or any of the models in any color, they’re all gorgeous!!!) would be a perfect travel companion! I would bike everywhere this summer if I had a bike like these.

  • 822. Sarah  |  March 20th, 2013 at 4:41 pm

    I love the Roadster in Rosewood and I’ve been dying for a bike to ride around all the awesome parks here in Austin!

  • 823. Cassidy  |  March 20th, 2013 at 4:43 pm

    OOOoooh I need a roadster in cream! I’ve even blogged about my need for a Linus! GREAT GIVEAWAY!!

  • 824. Melina S.  |  March 20th, 2013 at 4:50 pm

    Their wire basket is adorable! Their bikes are retro with a modern twist, which is my personal style! I also love all the little details they put into their products. It would be lovely to win one of them! I have been wanting one for the longest time, but unfortunately can’t afford one being a college student.

  • 825. Chrysse Leigh Haynes  |  March 20th, 2013 at 4:52 pm

    Ooooh so cute! The Dutch1 + Cream + Copper Bell + Aqua Back Basket = BEST summer ever!!!

  • 826. Jkoorstra  |  March 20th, 2013 at 4:54 pm

    I have to say I love the Crane Hamd Bell! Oh … and the Roadster to go with it =)

    JK

  • 827. Nicole  |  March 20th, 2013 at 4:58 pm

    I adore the Dutchi 1 in cream!! I am Dutch and a year ago had the opportunity to finally visit the “old country” and ride borrowed bicycles around Rotterdam. Love. I have been addicted to being in the saddle through spin class since. I dont own a bike and it’s pretty gorgeous out there…

  • 828. kristin  |  March 20th, 2013 at 4:59 pm

    The Dutch1 bike in cream is my DREAM bike! SQUEE! And their market bag? Straight up genius.

  • 829. Katie  |  March 20th, 2013 at 5:14 pm

    The Rear Wire basket would be the perfect accessory to hold all of my Saturday farmers market finds! I could put all my eggs in one basket!

  • 830. Yelle  |  March 20th, 2013 at 5:15 pm

    What an amazing giveaway! The Roadster Classic in cream is a gorgeous looking bike! I wouldn’t want to ride it I would want to just put it in my pocket it’s so pretty!
    I also love the Gaston 5 – super sporty!

  • 831. Alena Jaffe  |  March 20th, 2013 at 5:17 pm

    I’m taking the plunge and moving to NYC this summer, the classis roadster in rosewood would be the perfect start to a new beginning!

  • 832. Renee  |  March 20th, 2013 at 5:21 pm

    The Mixte3 in the small frame would be my top choice because I’m petite. I must say, I adore the headlamp!

  • 833. Laura  |  March 20th, 2013 at 5:27 pm

    Oh my goodness! To die for! biking is my favorite and I’d been planning and making an upgrade this summer! I love the Dutchi 1. And the colors!!!! I’d definitely go for the Spring Green =) What a great give away!

  • 834. Jamy  |  March 20th, 2013 at 5:28 pm

    Definitely the Roadster Classic :) Fingers crossed!

  • 835. Andrea  |  March 20th, 2013 at 5:34 pm

    Obsessing over this bike segment. I would very much love a new bike. I live in Chicago and with the warm weather right around the corner I am needing a new bike to get around the city this Summer. The Roadster Classic in Cream color would be my preference, but I’d be happy with anything with 2 wheel really. I’ll keep my fingers crossed until the giveaway is announced… and hope its MEE!!! :))

  • 836. rebecca  |  March 20th, 2013 at 5:37 pm

    I’ve been wishing, hoping, and praying for a bike!!! The Dutch 1 is a beauty!

  • 837. Lauren  |  March 20th, 2013 at 5:37 pm

    Best bikes ever! I’m totally smitten with the wicker baskets! Swoon!

  • 838. Andrea  |  March 20th, 2013 at 5:38 pm

    I also forgot to add my favorite product of theirs is probs the Rear Wire Basket they sell. Would be a super adorable addition to one of their bikes, as well as very helpful for lugging things around in the city.

    I can’t stand the anticipation!!

  • 839. Andrea  |  March 20th, 2013 at 5:46 pm

    I am all about the wine bottle holder! Thats exactly what I need if I win a Linus bike. I would cycle all over Los Olivos tasting wine with my boy. Thanks for having this contest, Bri!

  • 840. Nicole  |  March 20th, 2013 at 5:47 pm

    LOVE the Dutchi1 in cream! I think the first accessory I’d get would be the Linus headlamp. It’s a safety priority, and it maintains the chic style.

  • 841. Allison  |  March 20th, 2013 at 5:48 pm

    The Peterboro Original basket is darling. Perfect for spring! The Roadster is an absolutely beautiful bike.

  • 842. Rebecca M  |  March 20th, 2013 at 6:00 pm

    I love the Dutchi 1 in green! Gorgeous!

  • 843. Meg  |  March 20th, 2013 at 6:13 pm

    Ohmyword. What amazing bikes! It’s a tie between the Dutchi 3 in green and the Lil’ Dutchi. Gotta love great bikes for kids. Thanks for the opportunity!

  • 844. Caroline  |  March 20th, 2013 at 6:17 pm

    I would sooooo love to win the bike! I moved from Germany to the US to be with my husband and had to leave my 2 bikes behind. I used to go everywhere with my bikes and never even owned a car. I resorted to spinning but that is not the same at all! I would love to have the Dutchi 1 in Spring. I looks like one of my bikes I owned (my day-to-day bike).

  • 845. audrey vasauskas  |  March 20th, 2013 at 6:28 pm

    I love the rear wire basket in teal. So cute!

  • 846. Camille  |  March 20th, 2013 at 6:35 pm

    I absolutely love these bikes. They are expensive but not unrealistic. Good to know for future referrals. I am in love with the Dutchi 3 in sage. Good luck to me!

  • 847. Sandra  |  March 20th, 2013 at 6:48 pm

    The Dutch 1 in green looks like my Brooklyn dream come true. I can already see myself pedaling through Prospect Park on my way to the Saturday Farmers Market each weekend.

  • 848. Wenda  |  March 20th, 2013 at 6:55 pm

    I would love to have a new bike and these are all so beautiful and just look like lots of fun! I would love to have one with the wire basket which reminds me of how I used to carry my lunch pail when I rode my bike to my country school.

  • 849. Kylie  |  March 20th, 2013 at 7:01 pm

    Oh my goodness that roadster classic bike is just beautiful! I’ve been using my dad’s bike since I outgrew my childhood bike many years ago and it’d be wonderful to have my own again.

  • 850. jennifer  |  March 20th, 2013 at 7:05 pm

    Love the roadster classic! In cream or black, I can’t decide.

  • 851. Laura  |  March 20th, 2013 at 7:06 pm

    Dutch 1 in Spring Green is my dream bike – I’m visualsing it now!! Oh the spring time zooming around on my stylish Dutch bike … I would obviously need a wire basket to put my spring flowers & market treats in! I’ll now need to find suitable bike riding outfits ;) great competition & love Linus! Thanks so much!!

  • 852. Cindy Noble  |  March 20th, 2013 at 7:10 pm

    I’ve been wanting a bike for so long,i will have to cross my fingers extra tight! I love the dutchi 1 in green. So classic.

  • 853. Cindy Espinoza  |  March 20th, 2013 at 7:12 pm

    This is the kind of bike I’ve been dreaming about. I love the dutchi in green. So cool, I’ll be ready for the Atlanta beltline

  • 854. Alex Graddy-Reed  |  March 20th, 2013 at 7:29 pm

    I love the dutchi 1 in green! i just learned how to ride a bike last month and would love this cutie!

    I am absolutely, head-over-heels, in love with the Roadster Classic in Rosewood! It’s so beautiful. One day!

  • 858. Sara  |  March 20th, 2013 at 7:43 pm

    I would love a Linus bike to ride around Denver with my kids! I was loving vintage schwinns but now I am thinking
    LINUS!

  • 859. Rebecca  |  March 20th, 2013 at 7:46 pm

    Hands down the dutchi8! Perfect for hills and valleys.

  • 860. Lana  |  March 20th, 2013 at 7:53 pm

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Dutchi 1 in the green “Spring” color. Would be a nice upgrade from my 30 y/o craigslist schwinn :)

  • 861. Danielle  |  March 20th, 2013 at 7:59 pm

    I have to say I love the Mixte 3! Looks perfect for an afternoon ride under a blue summer sky.

  • 862. Kate  |  March 20th, 2013 at 8:03 pm

    This is the best giveaway EVER!. The Dutchi3 in sage is amazing!

  • 863. Laura  |  March 20th, 2013 at 8:07 pm

    I love the Dutchi in Green! I would love to have a bike to go on rides with my husband and daughters! :)

  • 864. ginny  |  March 20th, 2013 at 8:07 pm

    So much to love in your pics and at the Linus site! Love all those baskets on the top shelf, especially the one with the two stripes (though it’s not for sale on the website). Although I’m a huge cream-colored bike fan, I’d love the Dutchi 1 in bright green for the happy factor here in rainy Portland. I really need that Linus headlamp, too. Putting that on my wishlist. Thanks for the biking lust.

  • 865. Elise  |  March 20th, 2013 at 8:10 pm

    I adore the Dutchi1 in green. It reminds me of growing up in the south, riding my bike through down residential neighborhoods under tree-lined streets. I think the Nantucket Tuckernuck Tapered basket would be perfect on this bike to fill with food for a picnic in Central Park or groceries from the farmer’s market.

  • 866. Lauren Koster  |  March 20th, 2013 at 8:10 pm

    I think I would choose the Roadster Classic in Cream. What a fantastic prize!! Thank you. Good Luck to me!

    Lauren

  • 867. Donna  |  March 20th, 2013 at 8:11 pm

    love the basil bottle rear basket for trips to my local Trader Joe’s and I would feel totally swoon worthy riding any Linus bike!

  • 868. EM. Halliburton  |  March 20th, 2013 at 8:13 pm

    Beautiful florals, amazing giveaway! I love a classic cream bike, and the roadster is definitely the ideal in that department.

  • 869. Nora  |  March 20th, 2013 at 8:19 pm

    Oh my gosh! They’re all so lovely! I adore the Dutchi and Mixti for their femininity – the slanted bar would allow for lots of dress-wearing while bike riding! Add a basket and that’s about perfection!

  • 870. Gloria  |  March 20th, 2013 at 8:29 pm

    My favorite product is the PETERBORO ORIGINAL BASKET. Pretty feminine and lovely! If I win, I’ll pick the Dutchi 1, in cream.

  • 871. Ellie  |  March 20th, 2013 at 8:32 pm

    I’ve biked all over and I love the dutchi 1 in spring! It reminds me of the laid back grandmothers passing me on their old school Dutch bikes in the neatherlands. More on the confusing holland vs neatherlands conundrum can be found in this enlightening and charming video http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=eE_IUPInEuc&desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DeE_IUPInEuc pick me so I can make a whole hearted attempt at being half as cool as they are!

  • 872. Andrea  |  March 20th, 2013 at 8:39 pm

    The dutch in cream with a wire rea basket……perfect for cruising around town with my little girlies.

  • 873. Miriam  |  March 20th, 2013 at 8:43 pm

    Oh I love the Dutchi 1 in green – perfect for spring!!

  • 874. Susannah  |  March 20th, 2013 at 8:44 pm

    I love the Roadster Sport in Marine, such a pretty color. I love the look of my Scwinn LaTour, but it has turned into a rattle-y piece of junk and with two bent wheels and a rusted frame, I am in serious need of a cute upgrade!!!

  • 875. Hannah  |  March 20th, 2013 at 8:56 pm

    I love the Dutchi 8. I recently moved to San Francisco and have been on the hunt for a new bike!

  • 876. jocarol  |  March 20th, 2013 at 9:01 pm

    Love the office bag! It would be perfect for a quick trip of errands around the neighborhood!

  • 877. Channing Fransz  |  March 20th, 2013 at 9:07 pm

    THANK you for this giveaway!!! My husband and I live in a small beach community in San Diego and sadly have gotten BOTH of our bikes STOLEN within 5 months! He had a fancy one that looked exactly like the Roadster Classic, mine on the other hand was a bit sad looking but that little lady served me well!!! With today being the first day of spring we are in desperate need for some new wheels and adding the Linus Headlamp would make that little lady shine!

    P.S. (she will for sure be stored in the dining room…not gonna risk this beauty getting stolen!)

  • 878. Kelsie Rae  |  March 20th, 2013 at 9:12 pm

    Love the pouch bag!!!!

  • 879. Whitney  |  March 20th, 2013 at 9:17 pm

    I Live In Venice, and have wanted a Linus Dutchi 1 in green since the day I moved. They are the perfect westside ride!

  • 880. Brittany Stiles  |  March 20th, 2013 at 9:19 pm

    me + roadster classic in rosewood + Linus adjustable rear rack = set. for. life.

  • 881. Maggie  |  March 20th, 2013 at 9:22 pm

  • 882. judea  |  March 20th, 2013 at 9:24 pm

    The Dutchi in cream – perfection! Fingers crossed…

  • 883. Amy  |  March 20th, 2013 at 9:26 pm

    Amazing looking bike! Love the classic French bike. The dutchi is perfect!

  • 884. Samantha  |  March 20th, 2013 at 9:47 pm

    I love the Delano basket – it even has a spot for your coffee cup. Perfect!

  • 885. Natalie Shapiro  |  March 20th, 2013 at 9:56 pm

    Ah! I am digging the rear wire basket & the Dover 5. Would love riding this bike to work in -mostly- sunny San Diego :)

  • 886. Anonymous  |  March 20th, 2013 at 9:58 pm

    That nantucket pannier tuckernuck basket would be so cute on the back of a roadster classic!

  • 887. Chris S  |  March 20th, 2013 at 9:59 pm

    That nantucket pannier tuckernuck would be a great picnic basket on the back of a roadster classic!

  • 888. abi  |  March 20th, 2013 at 10:01 pm

    looove the roadster classic!

  • 889. Malia  |  March 20th, 2013 at 10:05 pm

    The Dutchi in cream is lovely and would be so perfect with a Yepp mini seat for my child now that he’s finally big enough. I have been waiting to get a new bike for just this reason!

  • 890. ricky  |  March 20th, 2013 at 10:07 pm

    Oh my goodness, such delicious bikes. My favorite has got to be the Roadster Classic in Cream. Anything in Cream, thank you. That insanely generous Sac in red and sand is also to die for.

  • 891. Dyanna Littke  |  March 20th, 2013 at 10:22 pm

    I adore the Dutch1 in Cream. They are beautiful! My daughter adores green though so she may be in charge of color if I win! thanks for the opportunity!

  • 892. Amy  |  March 20th, 2013 at 10:25 pm

    I seem to be in good company in adoring the Dutchi1 in cream! That or the Delano rear basket! My boyfriend and I are moving to a way more bike-friendly town this summer and I’m not sure my poor old cruiser can take that sort of continuous stress :(

  • 893. Melissa  |  March 20th, 2013 at 10:29 pm

    Oh what a great spring giveaway. I LOVE the cream Roaster classic, or maybe rosewood…it’s so hard to pick! Exactly what I need to bike to class in my little college town, San Luis Obispo. Thanks for the opportunity!

  • 894. Shauna Nep  |  March 20th, 2013 at 10:59 pm

    Linus really is the best! I don’t mean to post a sob story but… I had a linus roadster classic. She was perfect. My everything. I called her Stella. I took her everywhere. The farmer’s market, to and from work each day… But alas, my linus was stolen just a few months ago! I think it goes without saying that I miss Stella, and would love to bring a new linus into my life. Preferably, another black roadster classic – in her honor. :) Great contest, thanks for hosting it!

  • 895. Jen  |  March 20th, 2013 at 11:00 pm

    Oh my, definitely the Mixte #!! So clic! I’ve been wanting a bike for years and would love it if I won. LOVE the pairing of florals + bikes for the photoshoot!

  • 896. Meagan  |  March 20th, 2013 at 11:15 pm

    Last summer I ran over my Mom’s bike on her first day of retirement. True story. It was the saddest day! If I could win her this Dutchi1 bike I would get her peterboro original basket and fill it with flowers to hopefully redeem myself!

  • 897. Sidney  |  March 20th, 2013 at 11:29 pm

    Mixte 3 in sky blue please! Will have good home.

  • 898. Julia K!  |  March 21st, 2013 at 12:29 am

    the green dutchi 1 !! I would love/ in much need of a bike for the Chicago spring/summer!!

  • 899. Julia K!  |  March 21st, 2013 at 12:31 am

    the green dutchi 1!! i would love/in need to a new jazzy bike for the Chicago spring/summer!

  • 900. Amanda Rose  |  March 21st, 2013 at 2:34 am

    The dutchi 1 in spring green has my name on it! <3 <3 <3

  • 901. Caitlin  |  March 21st, 2013 at 3:52 am

    Put me on the white classic roadsters, and top it off with the CUTE Brooks Mandarin Orange bike seat, and I’ll be ready for summer in Austin!

  • 902. Reese  |  March 21st, 2013 at 3:56 am

    The Roadster classic in cream has been on my wish list forever! Would love to cruise around Brooklyn in it this summer. Beautiful shoot!

  • 903. allyson  |  March 21st, 2013 at 4:40 am

    Loving the Dutchi 1, in green. I’ve been hiking my skirt over a roadster style bike for years now. It works, but I’d prefer to be more of a lady. Love what you gals do!

  • 904. Zoe | Eat Breathe Live Color  |  March 21st, 2013 at 5:30 am

    Sweet! I have to go with the child seat. I’ve always wanted one for my youngest so we could all ride together – although the polka dot little nutty helmet is pretty tempting too!

  • 905. sue b.  |  March 21st, 2013 at 5:41 am

    those flowers… swoon!! that bike… love! I would love the dutch in green!

  • 906. The Art of Michelle  |  March 21st, 2013 at 6:19 am

    Yes! I’ve been wanting a new bike soooo badly! This giveaway is awesome. Dutch in green please!

  • 907. raquel running  |  March 21st, 2013 at 6:23 am

    the office bag is my favorite! Roadster classic in Black! This would be awesome in chicago this summer, and bikes are PRICEY

  • 908. Amber  |  March 21st, 2013 at 6:33 am

    OMG LOVE LOVE LOVE. I could so use a new bike! I would put this gorgeous Nantucket basket on the front of it to make my trips to the farmer’s market easier! Thank you so the opportunity!

  • 909. Bethany Vensel  |  March 21st, 2013 at 6:49 am

    I love the dutchi in cream.

  • 910. mariele  |  March 21st, 2013 at 6:50 am

    I’d go for the roadster classic. Simple is best!

  • 911. Lauren w  |  March 21st, 2013 at 6:58 am

    The dutchi1 in green is so pretty! Add a basket and I could see myself riding around my new little town running errands on a bike! How beautiful!

  • 912. Anna  |  March 21st, 2013 at 7:03 am

    What a fantastic giveaway! I would love the Dutchi 1 in green (and those Basil Bottle Rear Baskets are adorable)! I plan on doing a lot of bike riding with my daughter this summer.

  • 913. Hannah B.  |  March 21st, 2013 at 7:10 am

    The Dutchi 1 in green would be *perfection* for a Saturday at the farmers’ market and then picnicking in the park! Too cute!

  • 914. michelle schumaker  |  March 21st, 2013 at 7:17 am

    I have been LUSTING over the Roadster Classic for over a year now! I bought a crappy bike just to hold me over until I can save up to buy this beauty. I would love it in cream or Rosewood

  • 915. Megan Leader  |  March 21st, 2013 at 7:35 am

    These bikes are gorgeous! I love the Dutchi 1 in green, and that rear basket would be perfect for farmers market shopping! I am in LOVE. Thanks so much for sharing Linus Bikes–I’d never heard of them, but am definitely going to follow them!

  • 916. Eric Williams  |  March 21st, 2013 at 7:39 am

    I’ve wanted a Linus for over 2 years now. My favorite is the green roadster sport.

  • 917. Anna {dear friend}  |  March 21st, 2013 at 7:42 am

    I have been dreaming of owning one if these bikes for awhile now. Just haven’t had the funds! I love the Dutchi– such a classic looking beauty! I love the cream, too. Gorgeous.

    And of course I would attach a Nantucket basket on the front! Adore!

  • 918. Fernanda  |  March 21st, 2013 at 7:57 am

    I used to have the most adorable blue Linus Mixte 3. It had a lovely basket in the front, and it made me feel like a million bucks. It was stolen a month ago, so now I’m waiting to get a new one, maybe the emerald green dutchi 1…

  • 919. Blakely G  |  March 21st, 2013 at 8:08 am

    As a Charleston SC girl, my thrift shop bike is on its last leg, or should i say wheel. I would ADORE the Dutchi in cream. Especially with the rear wire basket in teal or a sweet little Nantucket basket. A dream!!!!

  • 920. Rachel Fannin  |  March 21st, 2013 at 8:32 am

    In my dreams I am riding the green Dutchi 1. With the Nantucket basket, of course! All of the bikes are beautiful, really!

  • 921. Melody Gates Hansen  |  March 21st, 2013 at 8:32 am

    The rear wire baskets are so amazing – I’ve been dying for them! My vintage Schwinn is adorable, but not the easiest to ride. A new Dutchi would be to die for, especially bc I live in Venice (down the st from Linus!) and need a bike to get around on the weekends!! :)

  • 922. cmlittle  |  March 21st, 2013 at 8:38 am

    Linus Lunch Rack, so perfect! Dutchi 1 in cream would make my fiance’s life!!!

  • 923. Dalia  |  March 21st, 2013 at 8:40 am

    I love the stone grey Dover 5 bike. I’ve been wanting a bike since the last few months of 2012. My boyfriend got a mountain bike back in October and we’ve been trying to find one for me as well to go riding together – which sounds more exciting now that it’s spring and starting to get warmer!

    I’d love to win the Roadster classic!

    Fingers crosseddddddd!

  • 924. Ally Cronin  |  March 21st, 2013 at 9:01 am

    I love the Dutchi 1 in the “Spring” color with the Nantucket basket. Every time I go to a bike shop, that is the style I lean towards. It’s just a beautiful bike.

  • 925. JR  |  March 21st, 2013 at 9:05 am

    My wife and I are buying our first home and we would love to get new bikes to explore the new neighborhood. The roadster classic in brown is really beautiful bike. It reminds me of a bike I road around in France when I was 17. (sighs)

  • 926. Amanda  |  March 21st, 2013 at 9:09 am

    I love these bikes!! & the photos are beautiful. Definitely am loving the roadster classic. My current bike is a little worse for wear, definitely time for an upgrade.

  • 927. jenn  |  March 21st, 2013 at 9:22 am

    the delano basket is ADORABLE! reminds me of all of the parisian riders in paris. i would die for a new bike. need one in seattle SO bad!

  • 928. Joy  |  March 21st, 2013 at 9:26 am

    The dutch1 is gorgeous, and I’ve been aching (literally) for a new saddle. The mandarin Brooks B17 is irresistible!

  • 929. Lauren  |  March 21st, 2013 at 9:30 am

    I love the Roadster Bike! It would be perfect for me, I’m planning on moving and I don’t want to have a car, so this would be amazing to win! I love the Sac bag, but I’m a geek and would just invest in lights, new grips and a portable pump!

  • 930. Vanessa  |  March 21st, 2013 at 9:34 am

    The Roadster is super sweet, also can a girl be in love with bells because i’m totally digging those brass bells and the sweet headlamp! The Lil Dutchi is soooooo cute, i’m obsessed! Fingers crossed.

  • 931. Tabitha  |  March 21st, 2013 at 9:52 am

    WOW! I’ve been looking for a bike that fits my personality for years. . . I think I’m in love. All I need is a bottle of wine, and I would ride this baby all day! (too cheeky?!) Cruising around campus would be so much easier with that beautiful cream Dutchi 1!

  • 932. Naomi A  |  March 21st, 2013 at 9:57 am

    The Dutchi 1 in cream with the Nantucket tapered basket!

  • 933. Carmen  |  March 21st, 2013 at 10:03 am

    i’m in LOVE with “THE POUCH”
    It reminds me of my childhood.

  • 934. Jennifer  |  March 21st, 2013 at 10:11 am

    I’m in LOVE! The dutch 1 in the cream color is my favorite and then add on the Brooks B17 Apple Green sadle would equal heaven!

  • 935. Kelsey Boyce  |  March 21st, 2013 at 10:17 am

    I’m in love with the Roadster 8. Enough gears to make hills possible, without the excess of too many gears. Totally split between cream or grey!

  • 936. Anna  |  March 21st, 2013 at 10:20 am

    I love the Dutchi 1 in green. My boyfriend and I have been wanting to get bikes so we can ride together some on the weekends and when we’re free. These bikes look really nice.

  • 937. robin park  |  March 21st, 2013 at 10:24 am

    wow..i never do this, but i’m pretty desperate for a bike. the roadster classic has shown up in my dreams i think..literally my dream bike haha:)

  • 938. kaci  |  March 21st, 2013 at 10:24 am

    the navy market bag is brilliant! tough and durable, it’s perfect for those trips to urban farmers markets. i’d love to pair it with the rosewood roadster and ramble around this new city o’ mine! owning a bike is definitely on my summer 2013 bucket list!

  • 939. Sara  |  March 21st, 2013 at 10:25 am

    Roadster Classic in cream with fenders, a headlamp, and an oopsmark wine holder for late night summer parties.

  • 940. Mojokat  |  March 21st, 2013 at 10:31 am

    What a dream, to ride wind through your hair on a Dutchi 1, cream colored as any sophisticated lady should be. Ready for the farmers market woven baskets and floppy sun hat. Sweet!

  • 941. Christina  |  March 21st, 2013 at 10:35 am

    brook’s saddle b17 on a cream classic roadster! and a bell just for fun

  • 942. Kate  |  March 21st, 2013 at 10:43 am

    Hey! My favorite bike of their is the Roadster Classic! It just looks so magical and amazing!

  • 943. Molly McManus  |  March 21st, 2013 at 10:45 am

    Wow I could really use a new bike, I’ve been trying to get around the city on a terrible old mountain bike. I love the copper bell they have – so pretty.

  • 944. Shannon  |  March 21st, 2013 at 10:48 am

    The black roadster classic is SUCH a beautiful piece! Major bike envy right now! Definitely my favorite!

  • 945. Lisa  |  March 21st, 2013 at 11:06 am

    I love the Roadster Classic. My little sis destroyed my old bike, so I new Linus one would be amazing!

  • 946. Margaret  |  March 21st, 2013 at 11:08 am

    Oh my god I’ve been wanting a Linus bike for forever! They are perfect! I love the dutchi and feel it would be necessary to equip it with the wire basket and brass bell. So lovely and perfect for Saturday mornings at the farmers market.

  • 947. Erica  |  March 21st, 2013 at 11:11 am

    I just recently moved to downtown Phoenix and I have been wanting a bike for months! I love love LOVE the Dutchi 1 model in cream!

  • 948. Ariana  |  March 21st, 2013 at 11:40 am

    GAH! Every time I pass Linus I LUST!!! Dutchi1 in Spring or Dutchi3 in Marine…amazing. BRING ON THE FROLICKING.

  • 949. Jess  |  March 21st, 2013 at 11:49 am

    Love the Linus Headlamp!!! Everything on the site is great, the roadster classic is my style for sure!

  • 950. Suzanne  |  March 21st, 2013 at 12:01 pm

    I have been riding the bike I got for Christmas when I was in the 6th grade, and I was going to ask for a Linus bike for my college graduation this summer! I like to roaster classic and the mixte, but either way I would definitely want the Linus bell! Such a fun touch!

  • 951. Linnae  |  March 21st, 2013 at 12:03 pm

    This would absolutely be a HUGE thing for me to win this bike. 1, I’m OBSESSED with these. 2, I am on the lookout for a bike and, not that it’s a must, but I really could use a bike. I’ve been wanting one for a long time now but just haven’t had the money to invest 3. You’re right, it doesn’t get much better than these ones.

    I think I’d have to go with the Mixte 3 in Sky Blue. Or the Roadster 8. Tough call.

    Here’s to hoping I win!

  • 952. Kelsy  |  March 21st, 2013 at 12:08 pm

    I live in the city so this would be the perfect excuse to finally sell my car and cruise around in style. The roadster classic is a babe!

  • 953. Kerry  |  March 21st, 2013 at 12:13 pm

    Love all of them. Who could resist any of these amazing items?! Especially digging the Mixte 3 in sky blue. xo

  • 954. Jessica Thomas  |  March 21st, 2013 at 12:22 pm

    Would love, love, love the Roadster Classic in cream — been dreaming of owning a Linus bike for a long time!

  • 955. Linda  |  March 21st, 2013 at 12:31 pm

    Beautiful bikes! My favorite is the Dutchi 1…I can see it looking pretty in NYC!

  • 956. Helen Stackhouse  |  March 21st, 2013 at 12:32 pm

    I have been searching for a new bike and these are absolutely perfect. I would be the happiest summer girl if I won one of Linus’ bikes! My favorite is definitely the Dutch style 01, in cream color :)

  • 957. Danielle  |  March 21st, 2013 at 12:36 pm

    Cream Dutchi 8 with the yellow basil bottle rear basket is DARLING. LOVE bikes. Spring needs to get here faster! Love adventures on the bike!

  • 958. Matt  |  March 21st, 2013 at 12:38 pm

    I would give it to my darling wife! She’s been wanting a Dutchi cream for ever and always. :)

  • 959. jim  |  March 21st, 2013 at 12:39 pm

    I love the GASTON 5. It looks comfortable but also can get me all over town to my job. I have been wanting a bike like this for a while.

  • 960. hillary  |  March 21st, 2013 at 1:35 pm

    The Mixte 3 is super cute! Love their bikes!

  • 961. Kristen  |  March 21st, 2013 at 1:44 pm

    The Dutchi 1 in cream is so amazing! I would ride it around town all day, everyday!

  • 962. Peggy Koehler  |  March 21st, 2013 at 1:56 pm

    Thank you for this wonderful giveaway! Our bikes (they were a bit old) were stolen from our back yard last year, and we have not yet replaced them, so it would be super to win the Duchi cream!!

  • 963. Cassie  |  March 21st, 2013 at 2:28 pm

    I love the idea of riding around with a rear basket on the back. Just the thought of something as romantic as that, to carry bread or flowers, makes riding a bike more than just a dream. Something as simple and fun as the Basil Bottle Rear Basket would help make all my girlish dreams come true.

  • 964. peka  |  March 21st, 2013 at 2:36 pm

    in LOVE with the Dutchi 1 in the cream! if i had a great bike like that i think i’d have to nix the car altogether! <3

  • 965. erin  |  March 21st, 2013 at 3:31 pm

    The the Roadster Classic in black would be divine, but a Nutcase is a must with any ride!

  • 966. Nicole  |  March 21st, 2013 at 3:40 pm

    The Dutchi 1 is super cute! I love the spring color. Would be so fun to ride around my college campus in the spring and fall!

  • 967. Stephanie C.  |  March 21st, 2013 at 3:51 pm

    I love biking and could definitely use a new one!! My favorites are the Dutch 1 and Basil rear basket

  • 968. Timothy  |  March 21st, 2013 at 3:53 pm

    I would love to win the Roadster Classic for my fiancé as a wedding present (Since all of our money is going toward the wedding). Her favorite bikes are Linus and really loves the color Rosewood. Here’s wishing! ::crosses fingers::

  • 969. Kandis  |  March 21st, 2013 at 3:55 pm

    oh my! I would love the Dutchi1 in cream….I love all their products! Their basil basket is pretty awesome too! Been dying for one of these– fingers crossed! xo

  • 970. zon  |  March 21st, 2013 at 3:55 pm

    I love the simple leather wine holder! I’d love to hang it off of the roadster in black!

  • 971. Tom Montague  |  March 21st, 2013 at 3:57 pm

    My favourite is the Roadster classic, and as a broke, bikeless guy in Brooklyn, NY, that bike would mean the world!

  • 972. mike marmer  |  March 21st, 2013 at 3:58 pm

    I want the Roadster Classic! A nutcase is a must-have!

  • 973. Jennifer  |  March 21st, 2013 at 3:58 pm

    I’ve been coveting the Dutchi 1 in cream for some time now, and I think the wire rear basket would be a fantastic addition. Fingers crossed!

  • 974. Victoria  |  March 21st, 2013 at 3:58 pm

    Gah, I’ve been wanting one of these forever! Love everything they make, but mostly I dream about owning the Dutchi 1 in cream. Luuuurve. Fingers crossed!

  • 975. Tracy  |  March 21st, 2013 at 3:58 pm

    The Dutchi is gorgeous! Brown saddle and a small basket for my ride to the farmers market would make me smile from ear to ear. It’s the little things…

  • 976. Kim H  |  March 21st, 2013 at 3:58 pm

    I love Linus bikes, have wanted one for awhile. I would pick the roadster classic in black, my favorite color.

  • 977. Ashley  |  March 21st, 2013 at 3:58 pm

    I love the mixte in the light blue color. The basil basket is also very pretty!

  • 978. Kim Magnusson  |  March 21st, 2013 at 3:58 pm

    these bikes are just how a bike should be – being from Denmark – the land of bikes – this makes me homesick, and if I was to get a bike now – LINUS would be the answer :-)

  • 979. Mary  |  March 21st, 2013 at 3:59 pm

    I have a linus bike and I absolutely love it. My sister, however, hasn’t had a bike in at least a decade and I would love to be able to surprise her with the Dutchi 1 in green. Her house has awesome bike paths around, but she is still paying off grad school loans so a bike isn’t really in her sights right now. This would be a good way to her to get back into biking.

  • 980. Nancy Q  |  March 21st, 2013 at 4:00 pm

    I would love to have the Dutchi in Spring since it’s dress friendly and a basket in front is a must. *swoon*

  • 981. Krista  |  March 21st, 2013 at 4:00 pm

    I love the Dutchi 8 and The Market Bag — such a cool on and off bike item carrier. They’d make a fabulous errand running pair.

  • 982. Cristy  |  March 21st, 2013 at 4:00 pm

    I want the Dutchi 1 in green. I would name this bike Kermit, but I’d call him Kermie for short. <3

  • 983. Joey  |  March 21st, 2013 at 4:00 pm

    Ooh. What a fantabulous giveaway. I really love the Roadster Classic in both black and rosewood. From the site, I’d say the Roadster Sport is my fave just because it’s ready to ride with fenders and a rack. Luckily, if I win the Classic I’ll just put those on myself! I’m trying to bike to work regularly, and I’d love to do it in style on this bike.

  • 984. Dana Larsen  |  March 21st, 2013 at 4:01 pm

    Wow… what a gorgeous design site you have! I’m going to hang out for hours and love on these ideas. As a single dad with two kids in college and an old beater bike that’s gone to pieces, I would treasure one of these classic Linus bikes. My favorite product has to be the Gaston 5, but they are all amazing. Thanks for the opportunity Design Love Fest, and good luck everyone. Happy spring!! – Dana

  • 985. John  |  March 21st, 2013 at 4:03 pm

    I need the exercise. I don’t want to wear spandex and pretend that I’m a racer. I don’t want some high-tech bicycle bristling with technology. I just want an honest bike that I can ride around the neighborhood, on the Monon Trail and downtown. I want an honest, simple bicycle that will help me offset the weight I’ve gained as I’ve aged. I’d love a Linus bike with my favorite item from their website, the Office Bag in army green for a lunch and my Kindle.

  • 986. Alex Grossi  |  March 21st, 2013 at 4:03 pm

    I would totally fit in more in my neighborhood (Los Feliz in L.A.) if I had a roadster classic! I love the retro look and would immediately buy the roll up market bag if I were the lucky winner!

  • 987. Milan  |  March 21st, 2013 at 4:04 pm

    I’d get the No8 OPINEL STAINLESS because 1) I’ve been watching a switchblade knife for a while and 2) I’d never think a product like this would be sold at a bike shop!

    *crossing fingers!*

  • 988. Marisol  |  March 21st, 2013 at 4:07 pm

    What a lovely day! Linus bikes are so beautiful and I have been desperately pining after a bike for some time, but can’t quite afford it, so this would be amazing if I could be so lucky! I would love to cruise around Austin in the Rosewood Roadster with the Market bag in navy or cream. OR really any of the baskets/bags. Is it weird to drool thinking about it? :)

  • 989. Briel K.  |  March 21st, 2013 at 4:09 pm

    I have been wanting a bike so badly lately. I would love to ride it around my neighborhood and get some exercise! I love the Mixte 3 bike in Sky Blue.

  • 990. Cynthia Tomblin  |  March 21st, 2013 at 4:15 pm

    I love the Dutchi 3 limited edition at the Linus store. If I won the Dutchi 1, I would have to buy the basket to put on it. It would be so much fun to ride down the street during market days buying flowers, fruits and veggies, or riding it along the river walk taking in the sights. I love the cream color.

  • 991. FIRE RAPTOR PEW PEW LAZOR GUNS  |  March 21st, 2013 at 4:15 pm

    I really like the Roadster Sport. It’s so purdy and shiny and bikey. But between the two options to win I would pick the dutchi. It’s so purdy and shiny and bikey.

    I am a fire raptor, but I can bike without melting it. Promise.

  • 992. Jordan  |  March 21st, 2013 at 4:16 pm

    Ever since living in Copenhagen I have wanted a bike just like the dutchi 1 in green. Instead of a beautiful dutch style bike while in Denmark i had an old mustang model named Wilson Pickett and just lived vicariously through the Danes with glamorous bikes. Would love to have my own for Seattle!

  • 993. Octavio Partida  |  March 21st, 2013 at 4:18 pm

    I love the Roadster Classic in Cream. Would really love a new bike since mine was stolen. :( Hopes are high!

  • 994. Barbara  |  March 21st, 2013 at 4:19 pm

    I have been lusting after a Dutch 1 for quite some time. It is the best looking bike I have ever seen. Someone at the YMCA I go to has one parked at the bike rack occasionally and that was what sold me. Classic styling from front to back. I will have one someday…

    I love the Nantucket Pannier!

  • 996. Tom  |  March 21st, 2013 at 4:23 pm

    Love the Roadster Classic in black. Simple, clean lines. Wonderful retro look. Perfect vehicle for the ride to work during the week, and a leisurely ride on the weekend.

  • 997. Cindy  |  March 21st, 2013 at 4:29 pm

    I relearned how to ride a bike as an adult in LA. Now that it’s spring, I am enjoying these sunny days down Sunset Blvd., along the LA River, in and out of neighborhoods and especially going DOWN the hill, picking up some milk when it has run out at the market a few blocks away, and all CicLAvias ever since I moved here and the inaugural one that I came down for. The Dutchi 1 in cream has been my dream bike ever since I’ve seen it, and test rode at the Venice shop and continued to eye it at the Pasadena pop up. I currently ride a bike my friend found for me on craigslist, one from the 80s, a heavier, rustier version that challenges me much than I can enjoy it.

  • 998. Ashley  |  March 21st, 2013 at 4:30 pm

    I’m a big fan of the green Dutchi 1. Would be great for riding along the roads by the beaches in Northern MA.

  • 999. Jessica  |  March 21st, 2013 at 4:32 pm

    I love the Nantucket tapered basket! It would go great with the Roadster Classic in Cream that I have been wanting since college.

  • 1000. laura w.  |  March 21st, 2013 at 4:33 pm

    Awesome contest! I love the Roadster 8 the best (to get up the neighborhood hills!), but I’d take the Roaster Classic for this contest. Linus makes such lovely bikes! And I love the Nantucket basket, too! So cute!

  • 1001. Jim  |  March 21st, 2013 at 4:34 pm

    Life really does not get any better than on a Linus.

  • 1002. Alex  |  March 21st, 2013 at 4:35 pm

    I would be so excited to win this bicycle! I have never seen one in person as they haven’t found their way to MI yet. I heard they keep great records of who owns their bikes in order to protect from theft. My favorite is the black roadster.

    crossing my fingers!

  • 1003. Brolin  |  March 21st, 2013 at 4:36 pm

    Love the Roadster Classic in black!

    The Gaston 3 is just my speed.

  • 1005. Laura Ventura  |  March 21st, 2013 at 4:39 pm

    I love, love, love that you make available your awesome handlebar grips in the lengths appropriate for a grip shifter! Thank you for that.

  • 1006. Suzanne Lemasters  |  March 21st, 2013 at 4:39 pm

    I have been drooling over the Linus Dutchi 3 LE for a few years now, I know you are not offering that model but the Dutchi frameshape is just an absolute work of ART!
    In Cream or black with a copper bell and a Nantucket basket :-) (One can dream, can’t they?)
    I’m sure whoever wins the bike will be VERY happy, so even if it isn’t me, I’m lovin it that you are going to make someone’s whole YEAR by giving away a bike! You RULE!
    Love begets love. <3

  • 1007. kacia  |  March 21st, 2013 at 4:47 pm

    I love the roadster classic in cream! such a gorgeous, simple bike. and the nantucket basket! how can one resist?

  • 1008. Cindy Veloz  |  March 21st, 2013 at 4:50 pm

    I’ve been DYING to get a bike. I love theses cause they look classic and retro but still modern. I would love to ride the dutchi1 with both the front and rear basket!!! Is that over doing it? A needs a place for her handbag AND shopping bags

  • 1009. nicolle  |  March 21st, 2013 at 4:56 pm

    dutchi in cream!!! what a wonderful bike. i’ve been looking into getting a bike, i hope this is the one for me!

  • 1010. Stewart Pierson  |  March 21st, 2013 at 4:59 pm

    I dig the Dutchi 1 in spring green!

  • 1011. Gabrielle Horne  |  March 21st, 2013 at 5:02 pm

    The Roadster Classic in Rosewood is a gem of a bicycle. The warm brown color of the frame looks so fine! I imagine adding on Linus’ Delano front wire basket complete with a coffee cup ring for my commutes to, from and around town. I’d especially be excited to ride this bike complete with basket to our local farmer’s market where I work and hand-pour coffee. By the end of the market I always have an armful of beautiful produce to take home with me…I’d just put it all in my basket and go for a ride!

  • 1012. Anonymous  |  March 21st, 2013 at 5:04 pm

    Thanks for opening my horizon up to this awesome shoppe! If luck has it that I will that bike I am going to run and buy that market bag/basket!

  • 1015. Michael  |  March 21st, 2013 at 5:10 pm

    The Roadster Classic in Rosewood is a fresh-lookin bike! I was recently in a bike accident, and this would be a great way to get me back on the road in style.

  • 1016. Katie  |  March 21st, 2013 at 5:19 pm

    The green Dutchi is beautiful! I have been wanting to buy a bike for awhile now…this would be perfect!

  • 1017. Kaelyn  |  March 21st, 2013 at 5:27 pm

  • 1020. Tessa Walker  |  March 21st, 2013 at 5:54 pm

    I’ve wanted a Linus Dutchi for a couple years now – such a perfect urban bike. And I love that perfect shade of british racing green.

  • 1021. Kelly  |  March 21st, 2013 at 5:57 pm

    The Peterboro Farmers Basket on a Dutchi 1 in Spring green would be my dream come true!!

  • 1022. izzy  |  March 21st, 2013 at 6:12 pm

    the product i’ve been lusting after on linusbikes.com is the office bag! so cute with such clean lines. loved this blog post and would LOVE to win a new dutchi!

  • 1023. Amanda  |  March 21st, 2013 at 6:29 pm

    I have been DYING for a Dutchi for years. I love it in every color and would, of course, put the Nantucket basket on the front to carry around my flea market finds. :)

  • 1024. Jin  |  March 21st, 2013 at 6:33 pm

    I love their newest line of bicycles for the kiddos – Lil Linus!

  • 1025. Larry  |  March 21st, 2013 at 6:34 pm

    I have been looking at a new bike for a while and the Linus is high on my list. I love the Roadster Classic in rosewood. It would make a great commuter when paired with a pair of The Office Bags.

    As spring arrives
    Let’s reduce our drives
    And pedal with our feet.
    Save on gas. and parking fees
    Fitness and a warming breeze
    A new Linus Bike can’t be beat!

  • 1026. Tyson Blades  |  March 21st, 2013 at 6:37 pm

    I think the Delano Basket is pretty awesome. It even has a cool cup holder that not only fits a coffee cup, but can handle a soda can or a bike bottle!

  • 1027. Hady  |  March 21st, 2013 at 6:40 pm

    Such cool bike gear! My favorite is the road bike in white. Classic and stylish.

  • 1030. Dima Cioly  |  March 21st, 2013 at 7:56 pm

    My fiance got herself her VERY FIRST bike — a Linus Dutchi 3 in Sage green. She takes it out for a ride any chance she gets. I on the other hand, am saving up for our wedding and can’t afford buying a Linus, but I am counting the days when I get to live my dream and bike around town with her. Funny story…. my original bike was stolen from me before my VERY OWN EYES… and I even chased the thief down and couldn’t quite catch up to him. TRUE STORY. I really hope that I get to win this bike because my life would be THAT much better biking around with my beautiful fiance. I would even considering doing a Linus photo shoot on our wedding day :). PICK ME :)

    I absolutely love the Roadster Classic in BLACK. It’s very sleek and polished.. and I think it would go well with my fiance’s bike too.

  • 1031. Melanie  |  March 21st, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    BASIL BOTTLE REAR BASKET is just perfect – I do so love yellow. I’d love to pair it with a Dutchi bike in cream. Adorable. Thanks for the GREAT giveaway.

  • 1032. emil  |  March 21st, 2013 at 8:26 pm

    linus! i love the sac bag because it is one of the most normal looking bags off a bike while also functioning perfectly on the bike, and that versatility is so important for my vain, yet bike commuting self! throw it on a roadster with a rear rack and life is made! if you superwant other opines, i can nerd out some constructive thoughts in your direction on colorways and obsessive bag geekery for hours, dear linus.

  • 1033. Sarah  |  March 21st, 2013 at 8:48 pm

    I ADORE these fabulous bikes! I’ve just embraced ditching my auto and commuting by train to work, but spring makes me yearn to be outdoors! It’d be lovely to have the wind in my hair riding on a brown classic roadster carrying my lunch in a wire basket!

  • 1034. Jessica  |  March 21st, 2013 at 8:56 pm

    I have wanted a mixte in black for so long…it would be wonderful to ride one to the beach!

  • 1035. Kia  |  March 21st, 2013 at 9:02 pm

    The bikes are awesome but the rear wire basket is just great. I love how it attaches to the bike easily with no crazy hardware and converts into a cute basket to go.

  • 1036. Amy  |  March 21st, 2013 at 9:02 pm

    I love Linus bikes! I tested one out in Portland a couple years ago, and wish I could buy one every time spring rolls around. I’d choose the Dutchi 1 in cream. :)

  • 1037. MICHELLE Lorie DePietto  |  March 21st, 2013 at 9:26 pm

  • 1038. Michelle  |  March 21st, 2013 at 9:49 pm

    The Duchi in cream is to die for! So perfect for traveling around in spring! Combine that with the rear wire basket and you have yourself the cutest little bike!

  • 1039. Tammy S  |  March 21st, 2013 at 9:53 pm

    I’ve been loving Linus for quite a while now and my favorite products from them has to be the Mixte 3 and Roadster Classic. And you guys happen to be giving away a Roadster Classic! I go to school in Davis and bikes has seriously become a huge part of my life. I really don’t know how I would live without one now. Some times I feel like I have become a bike nerd because of my growing interested in bicycles. :)

  • 1045. Sofia  |  March 22nd, 2013 at 6:24 am

    The Roadster in Cream is gorgeous! Would be fun to have around in the spring and summer.

  • 1046. Natalile  |  March 22nd, 2013 at 7:42 am

    Definitely the combination of the Roadster in cream with the Rear Wire Basket! Perfect for farmers market trips and lazy beach days!

  • 1047. Kelley Burrus  |  March 22nd, 2013 at 8:10 am

    I can absolutely see myself scooting along the streets of Austin in a cream Mixte 8 with my teal rear wire basket chock full of the evening essentials of entertaining. Gorgeous product, great value. Well done. Every city needs a fleet of these beauties.

  • 1048. Elizabeth @ The Dapper Paper Co.  |  March 22nd, 2013 at 8:14 am

  • 1052. Jennifer E.  |  March 22nd, 2013 at 8:53 am

    The Dutchi 1 in cream is my dream commuter bike & favorite product from the Linus online store! (close second – that Nantucket basket, for carrying weekend flower & foodie finds – hello, spring!)

    I have a Capital BikeShare membership in DC (2 years running!) and love using their commuter bikes, but it’s a dream to have one of my own.

  • 1053. aimee  |  March 22nd, 2013 at 8:54 am

    i have been coveting their entire dutchi line! i also LOVE their bike baskets. hope i win this sweet ride and good luck to everyone else, too! :)

  • 1054. Sarah J  |  March 22nd, 2013 at 8:54 am

    I love the rear wire basket!! So cute.
    I would love to be able to ride bikes with my husband, once the weather finally turns warmer. (expecting 6″ of snow this weekend. :/ ) So, the Roadster Classic in black would be perfect! <3

  • 1055. Carissa  |  March 22nd, 2013 at 9:01 am

    Oh my gosh that roadster classic is a dream (either black or Rosewood…or cream…I like them all of course)! I would LOVE to have a new bike. I haven’t had one since before college and lately I’ve been thinking how incredibly handy it would be to zip around on. :)

    Thanks!!

    PS. I’m so enjoying seeing your instagrams and tweets while you’re in europe. Living vicariously through you over here!

  • 1060. sasha lynne  |  March 22nd, 2013 at 9:36 am

    I love the mixte 3 bike, paired with the linus headlamp = riding in style.. super retro, makes a great statement while providing function! I also love that they call their seats saddles :) Good Design is good business…

  • 1061. Zella P.  |  March 22nd, 2013 at 10:14 am

    Hi there! I literally just moved to Santa Monica last month and the only thing I’ve been pining for is a bike, more than a sofa, a TV or anything else that my new apt needs in its barren unfurnished state…because if you know anything about the Santa Monica/Venice area is that you need a bike to get around :) The Dutchi 1 in green would be oh-so perfect to ride down to the farmer’s market on Sunday’s, then over to First Fridays on Abbot Kinney and lastly the Santa Monica Pier Concerts… It would give me such bliss and help me enjoy my first summer in beautiful/sunny Santa Monica. Best of all, no delivery would be needed, I’m a hop, skip away from the Linus shop in Venice…I can be there in 2 min flat (will be sprinting my buns off if i win the bike)!!

  • 1062. Emily  |  March 22nd, 2013 at 10:28 am

    I just moved to the heart of Philly and a bike is now at the top of my list!! I would be so grateful to win. I absolutely love the Dutchi 1 in cream =D

  • 1063. Chanel  |  March 22nd, 2013 at 10:35 am

  • 1064. Sarina  |  March 22nd, 2013 at 10:41 am

  • 1065. Corey  |  March 22nd, 2013 at 10:53 am

    Put a wine holder on the roadster classic, ride down to the store to get a bottle of wine, head to the park to enjoy a nice spring afternoon with a glass of wine. And of course chill out after the glass of wine before riding again. No one encourages drinking and riding.

  • 1066. Jillian  |  March 22nd, 2013 at 11:05 am

    I love the Dutchi 1 in spring! Beautiful!

  • 1069. Lyddiegal  |  March 22nd, 2013 at 12:06 pm

    I would love to win this – a new bike has been on my wishlist for the last year. I’d choose the green Dutchi and outfit it with the nantucket basket. Then I could ride though town in style and try to put my dog in the basket. Doubt she’d like that very much though.

    Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  • 1070. Alison  |  March 22nd, 2013 at 12:10 pm

    A green Dutchi with a market bag! Would look awesome parked in front of a big ol’ lilac bush. With some orange ranunculus. Secondary color scheme for the win!

  • 1071. Tricia Bautista  |  March 22nd, 2013 at 12:13 pm

    The Market Bag would be so great with my vintage Schwinn! Love these Linus bikes.

  • 1072. Sara  |  March 22nd, 2013 at 12:41 pm

    The Delano Basket is a necessity. You’ll need it before adding other accessories, like The Sac.

  • 1073. Carmen Quinonez  |  March 22nd, 2013 at 1:01 pm

    The Peterboro basket is my favorite! So cute :)

  • 1074. Adrienne K  |  March 22nd, 2013 at 1:12 pm

    Oh my! That Dutchi 3 Limited Edition is pretty sweet. But I am rather fond of black. Of course I’d have to add a basket to it. :)

  • 1075. Ellen  |  March 22nd, 2013 at 1:31 pm

    Wow what an awesome giveaway! I’ll be leaving to a four year college this year and it has a craaaaazy bike community! No cars, all bikes! I’d love the roadster classic to get me to class, and the Delano basket for my books!

  • 1076. Margaret O'Malley  |  March 22nd, 2013 at 1:40 pm

    These photos have made me even more desperate for spring! I love the Dutchi 1 in green — swoon! My old bike bit the dust last fall so winning this, just in time for the sunshine, would be lovely!

  • 1077. Elisha  |  March 22nd, 2013 at 1:54 pm

    The Dutchi 1 is adorable! With the Nantucket Tuckermnuck basket? To die for.

    Im heading off to Cal Poly SLO next year and honestly can’t wait! Their Farmer’s market has got to be a mile long, the picture just reminded me!

    I’ve been looking for a bike to take down there in the fall, a new one would be a dream come true! (And my birthday is on the 25th, I can’t think of a better present!)

    LOVE the blog, first saw it today–happy weekend!

    This post is amazing and so gorgeous. I am DYING over that rear wire basket in teal. I love the black and iron one too, but the teal just gives the basket that pop of fun! I would love to be the proud owner of the roadster classic in cream. I currently own a bike I have been riding for yearrrrrsssssss now. She’s a beaut but unfortunately time is taking its toll on her. My poor bike has started to rust and my back brake broke a month ago. I have been saving up to replace her, and when I saw your post I thought this was perfect! This truly is an awesome giveaway. Crossing my fingersss!! (P.s. I hope you’re having a great time in Barcelona!)

    OH YES!

    After a nasty bike accident this past summer, (broken collar and cheek!) this would certainly ease my way back into riding.

    The Dutchi 3 in cream is fabulous as a girl could easily hop on and off with a skirt on:)

    Does your bike come with a dose of courage? Or a hand to hold? I know once I’m back on, I’m good to go! Broken wings too shall mend. xo!

    I am head over heals for all of the linus bikes! I particularly love the roadster classic. I could totally see myself riding it around on campus this fall!

  • 1098. tina  |  March 22nd, 2013 at 11:44 pm

    i am LOVING the walnut bike rack! Such a pretty way to store a bike. I hope i can get the Dutchi 1 in cream!! yay!!

  • 1099. Stefanie Gladden  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 4:36 am

    I absolutely love the Dutchi 3 Limited Edition and the THE DELANO BASKET!! i’d love a great bike to ride around on!!!

  • 1100. Alice Lim  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 5:55 am

    Love the Gaston 5 – I am crazy for old-school down-tube shifters (just like my own bike). If I win, this bike would for my hubby, who is still riding a 20+ y.o. mountain bike that, quite literally, is being held together with rust. The brakes, when applied, sound like a flock of dying geese. Poor guy!

  • 1101. Katherine Strickland  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 8:48 am

    I ride my bike to work and would love to look more stylish on the bike with The Sac! Linus bikes are beautiful!

  • 1102. sandi  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 8:50 am

    I think the dutch1 is awsome and would love to ride it in my community. ….red is good!

  • 1103. Samantha  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 9:26 am

    i like the dutchi 1 in that lovely spring green! and i would love to put that little silver bell and a basket on it! i just got a job across the country, so i have to relocate. my new apartment is only a mile from the office and the center of town, and it NEVER rains, so i’ve been hoping to find a nice bike before i move so that i can sell my car to pay for my moving expenses!

  • 1104. April  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 10:35 am

    OOO. The DUTCHI1 for me, in Cream. With a sweet little bell and rear basket. How this mama would love a little ride in the neighborhood…with or without my little duckies.

  • 1105. Angelique  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 11:35 am

    OMG! I love, love, love the Linus headlamp! With daylight savings time, I need it.

  • 1106. Julie Benson  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 12:29 pm

    I’ve been pining for one of these bikes for years! Hope I win and if not, the lucky lady who does posts lots of pictures!!

    Julie

  • 1107. Julie Benson  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 12:31 pm

    Oh and I’d love the Dutch and any of the adorable baskets!!

  • 1108. Erika  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 12:43 pm

    The rear wire basket is just too cute! Love love love these bikes.

  • 1109. Liz  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 1:11 pm

    My favorite is the roadster, so classic cool! Great photo shoot too.

  • 1110. dotty  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 1:58 pm

    the basil bottle basket is so cheery!

  • 1111. Krista Smith  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 3:03 pm

    The Linus Roadster Classic in black is the quintessential bicycle, simple, sleek, classy. Wonderful post, by the way.

  • 1112. marissa (stylebook)  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 3:06 pm

    oh my goodness. that dutchi 1 is a dream. and these photos! i pinned every single one!

  • 1113. jordan  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 3:07 pm

    Great photos! Great looking bikes too! I am huge fan of Linus and their oopsmark wine holder.

  • 1114. Rachel H.  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 3:44 pm

    Loving the roadster sport. Looks like an awesome commute bike. But all of them are pretty cute!

  • 1115. Natalie Hotaling  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 4:03 pm

    I am absolutely in love with the roadster classic!!! I am moving to Brooklyn this summer for an internship with STATE clothing, and I would love to have a bike for scooting around the city!!

  • 1116. Yoshiko  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 4:36 pm

    The Dutchi 3 in marine is a real beaut!!

  • 1117. Jessica  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 4:42 pm

    My favorite product in the Linus Shop is the Gaston/Dover Handlebar (see below). Why? The design reminds me of a bird flying free, which is exactly how I feel when I’m coasting on a bike. Wind in my face, head tilted back, and holding on to the wings of this bird…can’t imagine that life could get better. Hoping to buy a Linus in 2013!

  • 1118. Laura  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 4:48 pm

    Their Dutchi 1 bike is just a dream — easily my fave! Ever since traveling in Amsterdam I’ve been in the prowl for the perfect Dutch city bike & this babe looks perfect. Team it up with the Nantucket Adult Lightship Tapered basket & you’ve got the best bike in town — hands down!

  • 1119. Libby  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 5:38 pm

    LOVE the Dutchi 1 in Spring Green! I’ve been borrowing my mom’s bike, but this summer she took it back :( I need a beautiful new bike to call my own!

  • 1120. Angie  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 5:58 pm

    I love the roadster bike! It would be very useful for getting back and forth between classes! And that cream color is just what I would pick.

  • 1121. Vanessa  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 5:59 pm

    I would love to cruise in style on the marine Dutchi 3 through the streets of San Francisco!

  • 1122. Nina  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 7:23 pm

    Oh my! The Roadster Classic is so beautiful. I’d love to ride it down the Venice boardwalk. I also love their rear wire basket. Perfect for holding my camera. :)

  • 1123. Laurel Cabrera  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 7:26 pm

    I’m loving the curvature of the Dutchi 1 in cream. Would love to have one of these classic bikes!

  • 1124. grace bae  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 7:53 pm

    My favorite is the basil bottle rear basket:)

  • 1125. Abigail  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 8:18 pm

    I love the pipette bag’ it’s beautiful! I could see myself riding around the city on the cream dutchi1.

  • 1126. Holly B  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 8:24 pm

    They have so many cool bike accessories! I have to pick up a bell and those awesome cardiff wood grips if I won the bike.

    I’d choose the Dutchi1 in Cream…just perfect :)

  • 1127. jaine {brklyn view photography}  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 8:49 pm

    I absolutely LOVE the Dutchi 1 in Green! Our building is FINALLY adding a bike room which is super hard to come by in New York. I’d love to ride around discovering brooklyn and taking photographs on this gorgeous Linus bike! – Thanks Bri!!

  • 1128. Aida  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 9:53 pm

    Wonderful bikes and accessories. I love the dutchi model for me (I would choose the cream Dutchi), the classic roadster for my husband and the lil’ roadster for my son! We just moved to the US and we need 3 bikes to ride all of beautiful Colorado this spring and summer. Fingers crossed! Thanks!!

  • 1129. Bike guy  |  March 23rd, 2013 at 10:22 pm

    I love the special edition mixte 3 speed!

  • 1130. Wendy Yeung  |  March 24th, 2013 at 3:21 am

    What an amazing giveaway! I’ve been looking for a bike like the dutchi 1! The Lil’ Roadster from the site looks amazing too! Thanks!

  • 1131. Daniel Shhehsn  |  March 24th, 2013 at 5:05 am

    My wife and I would love the Mixte, we could share it. I also like the Roadster, especially the 8 speed chromoly version.

  • 1132. Sinead  |  March 24th, 2013 at 5:37 am

    I love the dutchis!

  • 1133. Leah  |  March 24th, 2013 at 9:09 am

    wow beautiful bikes!! love the roadster in cream, and all the baskets and accessories are fantastic

  • 1134. Sarah  |  March 24th, 2013 at 9:14 am

    I have been wanting a bike for a long time. Baltimore is a very bikeable city and with my bike enthusiast boyfriend I feel a bit left out. I think that the roaster classic would be my ticket to more urban adventures and the opportunity to bike to work and the farmers markets and basically anywhere! I try to be as green as possible and I think that gorgeous bike would push me to the next level… Especially with spring on the horizon!

  • 1135. Rachael H.  |  March 24th, 2013 at 9:45 am

    1. I love the yellow Basil bottle rear basket!!
    2. I would definitely pick the Duchi 1 in cream! so adorable.

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  • 1136. Jennifer  |  March 24th, 2013 at 10:05 am

    biking around boston scares the bejesus out of me, but we just moved near the beach so i would love to cruise around on the Roadster Classic in cream!

  • 1137. Ashley M.  |  March 24th, 2013 at 10:21 am

    I have been dreaming about owning a Linus bike for awhile. My favorite is the roadster classic, perfect for taking a ride to the farmers market on a day like today, and filling the basket with fresh fruits and flowers. Thank you for sharing!

  • 1138. Britt  |  March 24th, 2013 at 10:52 am

    These bikes are absolutely lovely! I’m obsessed with the bright blue rear wire basket — it would look so pretty against the cream-colored Dutchi 1. Oh, how I would love to win this bike!

  • 1139. Loren  |  March 24th, 2013 at 12:17 pm

    I love my Dutch Linus bike! I love all the natural baskets and other accessories they sell. In fact, I need to bling out my bike with them ASAP. What I wouldn’t give for another matching Linus bike for my visting friends to get to tool around town with me…

  • 1140. Christina  |  March 24th, 2013 at 12:18 pm

    I’m about to be 23 years old, and I am just now learning how to ride a bike! I never got to learn as a kid and now I’m finally making it a priority! Looking forward to a move to Philly in July, so I could definitely use a pair of wheels. Being as I am still a bit wobbly, I love the “Nutcase” helmet in black. It would pair well with the Dutchi 1 and my nervous demeanor.

    Here’s hoping!

  • 1141. Katie  |  March 24th, 2013 at 12:23 pm

    I absolutely love the Delano basket! Effective and good looking – perfect!

  • 1142. Shana  |  March 24th, 2013 at 12:50 pm

    This would be the perfect bike for my dog, Bait, and I. Also, love the old fashioned rear baskets (maybe my cat could come along, too!). The Dutchi 1 in cream is fabulous!

  • 1143. Lea Anna  |  March 24th, 2013 at 1:50 pm

    I’m digging the Roadster Classic in cream. So cute.

  • 1144. Margot C  |  March 24th, 2013 at 2:04 pm

    In the shop the Market Canvas Bag is a marvelous design; I could put that on my current funky bike!

  • 1145. Margot C  |  March 24th, 2013 at 2:05 pm

    I like the Dutch 1 bike in Cream

  • 1146. alexisbryn  |  March 24th, 2013 at 2:13 pm

    the dutchi 1 is a perfect bike!! I sold my bike when I moved from the beach to downtown LA… figured it wasn’t best. And now that we are planning to move, I would love a new one!! I love it in the Spring Green color, it matches my SUV!

  • 1147. Sarah  |  March 24th, 2013 at 2:16 pm

    How lovely is the Roadster Classic in black? Ive been wanting a new ride and that one is so perfect! Great give a way!

  • 1148. Jessica G  |  March 24th, 2013 at 2:16 pm

    I was just in Venice for work and saw the shop…these pictures capture the spirit so well.

    My baby cousin is moving to NYC this year after she graduates. She’ll be living in Queens but I’d love for her to visit me all the time on the UWS this summer. When I saw their bikes I immediately thought of her…what a rockin graduation gift this would be. She’s a bit of a tomboy and I can see her zipping around on the black Roadster Classic. In the shop I love the copper bells! Thanks for the beautiful post!

  • 1149. Katie S  |  March 24th, 2013 at 2:41 pm

    Roadster Classic in rosewood is an amazing combination. I would love it forever and ever.

  • 1150. Shelly  |  March 24th, 2013 at 3:05 pm

    The Dutchi 1 in Cream = one rad ride.
    I love cruising down the bike path from Venice to Manhattan beach on weekends with the beau. It would be great to do that ride with a bike that has brakes (my current bike does not, which calls for some daredevil-like moves!)

  • 1151. marissa  |  March 24th, 2013 at 3:37 pm

    I like the Roadster 8. My sister has the Mixte 3 and the market bag. It’s a great combination.

  • 1152. Kelsi  |  March 24th, 2013 at 3:49 pm

    I love the Dutchi 1 in cream!

  • 1153. Laura Elizabeth  |  March 24th, 2013 at 4:12 pm

    What a lovely company! That green Dutchi1 is gorgeous! Love it. Such a generous giveaway. Thanks!

  • 1154. Patrick  |  March 24th, 2013 at 5:26 pm

    The Roadster classic looks great.

  • 1155. Elleby  |  March 24th, 2013 at 5:29 pm

    How sweet – I’ve been dreaming of a bike to ride to the farmer’s market, and these are fantastic! My favorite is the Dutchi 1 in cream, and I’d add the market bag.

  • 1156. alicia  |  March 24th, 2013 at 5:36 pm

    last year i saw the most lovely girl, dressed all in chambray with long brown hair flying in the wind, riding the linus dutchi 1 in cream and I have been lusting after it ever since. I’ve been trying to convince my boyfriend to sell one of his road bikes and buy me this white beauty, but if i were to win we could keep both and ride into the sunset together. <333

  • 1157. Heather S.  |  March 24th, 2013 at 6:30 pm

    I can’t explain how badly I’ve been wanting a bike. For the past 3 years or so I’ve been dropping hints & wishing… Oh, to win as marvelous a bike as this!

    I love the Dutchi 1 in cream – its gorgeous:)

  • 1158. Debbie Ivester  |  March 24th, 2013 at 6:38 pm

    I love the Dutchi1 in cream…it looks great!

  • 1159. Julia  |  March 24th, 2013 at 8:01 pm

    The website is beautifully designed, first of all. Secondly, all of the bikes are simply gorgeous. What caught my eye, however, was the yellow Basil Bottle Rear Basket. My favorite color, and it can hold a lot! A bike would be a perfect gift right now as I am moving into big city life [aka: DC] in May!

  • 1160. Anonymous  |  March 24th, 2013 at 8:34 pm

    With a cream roadster classic and my pug in the delano basket- I’d be set for summer (and the coolest girl in town)! Fingers crossed xx

  • 1163. SaraKM  |  March 24th, 2013 at 9:34 pm

    The dutchi 1 style in cream with a nantucket adult lightship tapered basket would be the best everrrr!

  • 1164. Aileen Moon  |  March 24th, 2013 at 9:36 pm

    I really love the Dover model. It is exactly the type of bike I had been admiring after. Great company! :)

  • 1165. Jennifer O'Brien  |  March 24th, 2013 at 11:27 pm

    I would love the Dutchi 1 bike in cream with the Nantucket adult lightship tapered basket! This would be perfect for warm days ahead, I’d use it to go to the beach, the market, even work since it is close by and I’d be able to bring things in my basket!

  • 1166. lauren koval  |  March 24th, 2013 at 11:33 pm

  • 1169. Kaitlynn Breeze  |  March 25th, 2013 at 1:06 am

    Hallelujah! These bikes & baskets are gorgeous! Love the Dutchi models. Would so so love the Linus Dutchi 1 bike in Cream! My husband and I are about to move to LA in two months to plant a church called Fearless with a group of phenomenal people. Having a bike to cruise around the city would totally rock and be the perfect touch to our new lifestyle!

  • 1170. Amanda  |  March 25th, 2013 at 7:07 am

    TOTALLY in love with the DUTCHI1 in spring. Love! Its basically the color of the year :)

  • 1171. Nicoletta Pagnotta  |  March 25th, 2013 at 7:24 am

    I couldn’t sleep last night since I stumbled upon this giveaway.It is fate,Pure Serendipity! Dreams of my very own Linus Bike ensued.

    Just this weekend, I fell in love with a Linus at a local bike sho here in Brooklyn. I am in the market for a new bike for the upcoming NYC 42-mile, five boro ride, and for my daily commuting needs. They are all fantastic, I would be blessed to have any of them, really! If I had to narrow it down, I am torn between the Dutchi3 of the Mixte3 in either sage or cream (both amazing), with a Nantucket Oval basket or the rear wire basket.

    I love to cycle and would love to see NYC become Amsterdam, making cycling the transportation way of the future. A new Linus would be a dream come true! Smitten.

  • 1172. Jennifer  |  March 25th, 2013 at 8:48 am

    What beautiful photos and what beautiful bikes! I’m heading back to school to get my masters degree in the fall, and I really need a bike! the Roadster in rosewood would be a perfect way to get around my college town!

  • 1173. Mica  |  March 25th, 2013 at 9:28 am

    Absolutely love the Nantucket Cisco tapered basket, the pipette bag, and SO much more! Great post, great shop! Here’s hoping…

  • 1174. Stephanie  |  March 25th, 2013 at 9:51 am

    Ooo, they’re all too good! I’d love a little dutchi in cream or SPRING! Add a little Yepp Maxi seat for the little one to the back and off we go on a beach cruising adventure…(sigh). Gorgeous bikes, all!

  • 1175. Julia  |  March 25th, 2013 at 10:44 am

    I love the new Rosewood color for the classic roadster. I am envious of all the Venetians riding around the neighborhood on their Linus’. Great company. I’ve always wanted one.

  • 1176. Kyle Johnson  |  March 25th, 2013 at 10:54 am

    I recently bought a Linus Roadster Sport and love it. It would be great for my girlfriend to win one so that we can ride together so I’m secretly entering this for her. I’m sure she’d like either the spring or cream colored Dutchi 1.

  • 1177. Maddie Brozen  |  March 25th, 2013 at 10:56 am

    My favorite item on the Linus Shop is the NANTUCKET PANNIER CISCO. It’s a beautiful basket that is also very practical since it hooks to the side of a rack. If I won this contest, I would choose the classic roadster. I’ve been riding bikes since I was a kid, but in my adult life I’ve never got to own a brand new bike!

  • 1178. Elizabeth Kennedy  |  March 25th, 2013 at 11:10 am

    My brand new Linus Dutchi 1 in cream was JUST stolen! As a Venice Beach dweller I rode it everyday! Would love to get my hands on another so I can stop depending on my car and get back on the bike path.

  • 1179. Rob  |  March 25th, 2013 at 11:29 am

    My bike was also stolen yesterday (people LOVE Linus, don’t they?!), so a new Linus Classic would help ease the pain. I’m also a big fan of The Sac bag that Linus offers!

  • 1180. Kelley K.  |  March 25th, 2013 at 12:36 pm

    I am such a big fan of the design/ look of Linus bikes (I will own one someday!) It’s so tough to choose just one ‘favorite’…for now, I have to go with the rear wire basket. I could have a lot of fun filling that up with vibrant colors and fresh scents from a farmer’s market.

  • 1181. Kate Harrison  |  March 25th, 2013 at 1:31 pm

    Dutchi with a market bag? Heaven!!

  • 1182. Jessica O.  |  March 25th, 2013 at 3:08 pm

    Dutchi in Cream is my fav :-)

  • 1183. susana  |  March 25th, 2013 at 3:29 pm

    Dreaming about riding a Dutchi in cream in some european capital where i’ll move, and use the bike as a mobile coffee shop. Dreams come true sometimes, right?

  • 1184. Grant Breeze  |  March 25th, 2013 at 3:51 pm

    My wife and I are moving to LA and I would love to surprise her with a bike! I know she would love the Dutchi 1 in Cream. Then maybe one day I’ll buy a matching roadster to go with hers!

  • 1185. Lauren  |  March 25th, 2013 at 3:59 pm

    gahhhhh…LOVE LOVE LOVE the Roadster Sport in Marine

  • 1186. Karissa  |  March 25th, 2013 at 4:25 pm

    Looove the roadster classic in cream! It’s the perfect season for it:-)

  • 1187. Daphne  |  March 25th, 2013 at 4:44 pm

    I love the Nantucket baskets and all the cute little bells – they have just gotten around to painting bike lanes on the major streets in my town so this is perfect timing :)

  • 1188. Erin  |  March 25th, 2013 at 5:59 pm

    Such a fan of the Mixte 3 style bike in Sky Blue. <3
    I'm currently on the lookout for a bike to help me commute to work here in LA!

  • 1189. Sara  |  March 25th, 2013 at 6:11 pm

    I LOVE the Market Bag! It’s the perfect way to get groceries without lugging a backpack around! Now… if only I had the Roadster Classic to go along with it!

  • 1190. Katie  |  March 25th, 2013 at 6:56 pm

    I’m in love with the Dutchi 1!!! I would totally buy the Delano Basket and line it with a snuggly blanket for my miniature dachshund Minnie so we could cruise around town together enjoying the SF sun.

  • 1191. Meredith  |  March 25th, 2013 at 8:16 pm

    My favorite is the Mixte 3 in Sky Blue! The color reminds me of perfect Spring days and endless Summer afternoons. I would definitely accessorize this bike with a pair of cute, high waisted shorts, a good belt, colorful blouse, and red lipstick–ala the gorgeous Ava Gardner–http://ridesabike.tumblr.com/image/2077698238. I’m in desperate need of a new bike, but one that I could ride around my small college campus in style. Mountain bikes do not require accessorizing, but Linus’s Mixte 3 screams for a lovely, fashion-friendly rider. Love, love, love! :)

  • 1192. stephanie  |  March 25th, 2013 at 9:00 pm

    These bikes are gorgeous! Haven’t wanted one as much since I was a kid! Love all the roadster designs!

  • 1193. Melissa N.  |  March 25th, 2013 at 9:37 pm

    I love the market bag, it would be perfect with the Dutchi in Spring. Here’s to hoping I win it!

  • 1194. Anonymous  |  March 25th, 2013 at 10:36 pm

    I love how the website includes all the bells and whistles for bikes, literally! I also appreciate their dedication to a greener lifestyle. The roadster classic in cream is such an amazing design, I’d love to bring some of that European inspired style to the Midwest!

  • 1195. Adrienne M  |  March 25th, 2013 at 10:39 pm

  • 1196. J  |  March 26th, 2013 at 12:01 am

    I love the look of the Dutchi1! I would have to go with the bright green color for spring :D and deck it out with a basket and a bell. I have been needing a bike to get around Santa Monica and to go to work. So excited to enter! <3

  • 1197. becky  |  March 26th, 2013 at 2:28 am

    love the Roadster classic in the rosewood color! add on a bell for fun. :-D

    I think my favorite is the green Duchi 1…I have an old green cruiser bike now, and a Duchi 1 in green would be an excellent upgrade! :)

  • 1201. Mikkele Bringard  |  March 26th, 2013 at 7:17 am

    I love the Dutchi 1! very reminiscent of when I lived in Amsterdam.

    I like Gaston 3 and 5!

    I would love the Roadster classic! That’s my second favorite.

    I love the Dutchi 1 in green!

    I am completely smitten over the office bag, as well as the classic roadster. It reminds me of my Mom’s vintage bike I used to ride everywhere until its demise last month.

  • 1205. Scott  |  March 26th, 2013 at 7:46 am

    The Roadster classic is definitely what I’d grab from the store.

    The Roadster Classic looks like it is the cat’s pajamas! Such a good looking bike, especially in Cream. After perusing the linus site, the rear wire basket looks like a must have accessory for trips to the grocery store. The practicality of the basket would be an integral part of shifting to a more bike-centric lifestyle… AKA WANT!!

    My favorite accessory is the Walnut Bike Rack (http://bit.ly/YybQnH). Living in Brooklyn, floor space is a prized commodity. If I had this rack, I’d mount it on the exposed brick that lines the long hallway leading into my living room.

    I’d love, love, love to have a new Linus bike to ride to the farmers markets in Prospect Park and Union Square and to my office in DUMBO.

    I’m in love with the Dutchi-1 model, and love it in both colors. Thanks for sharing their site!

    I like the NANTUCKET ADULT LIGHTSHIP TAPERED basket.

    Love the dutchi!
