Who is Jeroen?

My name is Jeroen, and I’m a cycloholic. I absolutely love everything about bikes — riding them, selling them, fixing them up
— everything! People say I’m “the friendliest bike specialist in Amsterdam” who offers “honest advice with a playful attitude”.
All I know is that I always have been, and always will be, totally mad about bikes.
Or maybe I’m just plain mad.

“Een fietser en een fietsenmaker pur sang.”

My Story

I’ve been making bikes since I was 18. I began my career at ‘t Mannetje on the Frans Halsstraat, before moving to Bike Tech in Barcelona. Now I’m back in Amsterdam with my own shop, where I’m proud to share more than 29 years experience of hands-on bicycle repair and supply with the fine folk who make this town a Mecca for cyclists. I really, really love my work, which is why I take proper care of people and products, and why I always deliver service with a smile… and maybe even a little dance, if you’re lucky.


Me and Bikes

Bikes — what better way to travel? Cycling is safe, quiet, environmentally-friendly, and suitable for people of all ages. There’s something very civilised about the freedom, pace and shared experience that makes cycling about so much more than just getting from A to B. Cycling is important! Bikes are important! That’s why I ride every day, making the most of the wonderful cycling culture we have in Amsterdam. And that’s why when you visit my shop, I’ll take time to find exactly the right bike for you. Because I want you to love your bike as much as I love mine.

My Shop

My shop is located next to the beautiful Kastanjeplein in Amsterdam Oost. A former bakery, it was converted into H. Heerooms bike shop in 1968. Harry, the owner, was a friendly, engaging man who became known as the singing bike-maker because of his habit of repairing bikes in the street while singing. After a brief period of ownership by Amsterdam’s ‘t Mannetje, I took ownership in 2011 and the shop became Fietsenmakerij Jeroen. I still welcome many of Harry’s old customers to my shop.

What I sell and Why

I am very proud to present three floors full of the very best bicycles on the market today. Specially selected for quality and style, my stock features folding bikes, town bikes, bikes for grandmas, grandpas as well as fun-loving boys and girls.
I also extend a warm welcome to bikes in need of a little TLC. I’m fully equipped with 29 years knowledge and experience of bikes, a workshop stuffed with parts and tools, and my famous “golden hands”!
