Duell Professional 1991


About this bike

Jan van Dalen started building frames in The Hague, in the barn of his parents' house. However, the demand for his frames  grew rapidly so he relocated to Hoek of Holland where he remained until 2002. Nowadays Jan is giving cycling  clinics in Maillorca. Duell frames are still being built, but Jan has nothing to do with these frames.

Jantje, as he was called long by insiders,  also built frames for PRESTO  in Amsterdam - nice steel frames with lugs. Duell bikes were well known in the Netherlands for their quality and refined details. One of those distinctive details was the bottom bracket, which had specials slots to guide the shifter cables. An other saillant detail was that Duell's always had painted logo's instead vinyl one's. 

The Duell I am selling belonged to a former Pro. It has the typical flashy Duell  paint job, and the frame itself is just stunning. Take a look at the bottom bracket, the slotted cable guides are just one of those typical Van Dalen inventions. The bike itself is still in a good condition. Handlebar tape and all the cables are replaced. Furthermore equipped with an 8 speed chorus groupset.
