For some years The Holidaybiker is the biggest Santos Travelmaster dealer in The Netherlands. We have sold quite a number of Santosses with a beltdrive.
The Santos Travelmaster is built in Holland as you order; custom-built they call it. The boys from the Lowlands are impressively progressive. You have the possibility to chose over 26 frame coulors and almost 80 transfers.
‘If this belt is good enough for a Harley motorbike, it might be just what we need on our bicycles’. Therefore Santos introduced the Rohloff / Gates ‘belt-drive’ five years ago. I have to admit, a bike without chain, but with a belt rides very special.
It takes about 5 weeks to get your bike ready, but for special requests I will call Santos to make your deadline.
Some models are available within 10 days. The so called specials are matt black annodized frames, built up with a Shimano Deore-LX or XT group. Magura HS11 and HS33 hydraulic brakes are optional.
Oops, almost forgotten, we also supply the Santos tandem. Perhaps the most stiff touring tandem around.
All bikes are available in our for test rides if you want to purchase a bike at De Vakantiefietser/The Holiday Biker.

- Mail, Call or skype and we will help you customize your Santos. Certain components we recommend, others we do not. You are always told why. There are examples available in the store and we continue the options where Santos halts, just to make your bike more perfect than you can imagen. That is our experience.
- On the Santos site you can make a beginning customizing your bike.
Oh yeah, if you come to pick up your bike, you will be measured on our unique fitting frame, to avoid pain in your back, neck, wrist or knee. And what about your behind? That’s a matter of cultivating callus, no punishment on your new Santos.
Have a look at this beauty. Can you see what coulor can do; nice brown transfers on a vanilla white frame, topped off with a honey brown Brooks saddle and matching leather grips. Along with the belt-drive, Rohloff speedhub, Magura HS33 brakes, SON headlight and hub dynamo. As good as it gets…
To the right you see Line’s Santos. She is a primary school teacher and took her Santos to class. You cant start young enough…
