Bike Republic

Fietsenwinkel Wieleke belgie

“I, Bart Daems, started the Wieleke in 1993. By 1 January 2022, we will be called Bike Republic. At that time still in my parents’ garage. The 1st shop is in Laakdal (1000 square metres) and the 2nd shop in Diest (1700 square metres) with an indoor test centre. You can test various Huka tricycles in our indoor test centre. Think of the Cortes tricycle, Vasco tricycle, the AT children’s tricycle, the Copilot 24 and the Copilot 24-3 and 26-3. Test riding in bad weather conditions is therefore not a problem,” said Bart Daems.

“It is also possible to test ride outside with us. Our test centre in Diest is located on a cycle junction network with very beautiful hilly surroundings. An ideal environment to experience whether the Huka in question suits you.”

Bart Daems, entrepreneur Bike Republic speaking

“Do you have a restriction or disability? No fear, we have a suitable solution for almost everything. Our workshop is well equipped and equipped with 3d printer, metalworking and, of course, the necessary knowledge. We also employ workers who have worked as nurses. So appropriate handling of disability is not a challenge for us but a pleasure to search with.”

Are you looking for a bicycle shop in Belgium in the Pelt, Meerhout or Beveren area?

“With an extensive offer, we are happy to advise you and are at your service. We have several customers from our area and the Antwerp area, but as a bicycle shop, we also deliver outside that area such as in the area of Pelt, Meerhout or Beveren. You’ve come to the right place.”

Make a no-obligation appointment for advice

“Also visit our youtube channel where we introduce Huka’s tricycles and tandems with short demo videos. We recommend making an appointment to test Huka tandems and tricycles by phone or online. That way you don’t have to wait when visiting and you get our full attention without any time constraints. We ourselves find it very important that you test as many different tandems and tricycles as possible so you find the bike that suits you perfectly. Each visit or test ride is totally non-committal, so there is no obligation or cost involved! We hope to welcome you soon! We’ll get the coffee ready in advance.”
