In 1946 our grandfather Achiel started a bicycle shop in Zwevezele (Belgium). Seventy years later, we, Peter & Tom, now make bicycles bearing his name and face together with our father Jan and some loyal employees.
The inspiration for our Achielle bicycles stems from the early 20th century. We combine these models with current technological advances. What makes Achielle truly unique is that all steel frames are still produced in our own factory in Belgium. From steel tube to complete bicycle in one workshop.
This enables us to put our heart and soul into the very essence of every Achielle, its frame. We then look for the best components to equip the frame, such as Brooks, Shimano, Sturmey Archer, Hebie, Steco, AXA, Humpert, Thun, Spanninga, Mach1,…
At Achielle, we do not just build bicycles, we build your bicycle. Each and every Achielle is made to order. You choose your model and then begin designing. You decide what to add and what not. You start with choosing one or several colours. However, you can also personally determine the number and type of gears, the kind of brakes, the colours of the tyres, the saddle and even the colour of your chain. Our configurator enables you to explore all possibilities. If desired, our dealers will gladly help you with all the details.
Once you have ordered your bike, we will start building it, from cutting tubes over painting the frame to completing the assembly. A few weeks later you can collect your own Achielle with your dealer.
