The F3 2.0 is a fully hand built smooth welded frames in 6061 aluminium with integrated headset and internal cable runs. Both versions are available with either the KOGA Feathershock suspension forks or with a rigid fork as preferred. The F3 is characterized by the shape of the frame tubes where round and sharp lines are used alternately, accented with an "understated" design.
Koga's designers have excelled in producing a clean bicycle concept, where functionality, integration and design are in perfect harmony.
A good example is the cable for the rear light, which is completely routed through the frame and the luggage carrier. Also the rear mudguard and luggage rack are striking examples of the comprehensive integration: the points of attachment are barely visible.
Bikes in the F3 series are available with an efficient SRAM 3D hub dynamo and a high quality LED lighting system with standlight, plus a KOGA oversized sport touring handlebar, Hermanns Adrenalin Ergo grips and a KOGA LoDo F3 integrated rear rack.

All Koga bikes are built by hand at their premises in Heerenveen, The Netherlands. A single technician is responsible for the full assembly of each bike. The ‘handbuilt by Koga’ logo on the frame is the guarantee of this unique working practice. By individuals, for individuals. This close relationship to the product is reflected in the results: perfection down to the finest detail.

Since 1974 people have had more time for leisure activities, because the working week got shorter. Koga, as a newly-founded cycle manufacturer, took immediate advantage of this trend. Andries Gaastra, former Sales Manager at Batavus, founded Koga B.V. when his father Gerrit sold the Batavus business. He joined the first two letters of his wife’s surname with the first two of his own to form the brand name Koga.
Gaastra’s aim was to bring an exclusive range of lightweight bikes to market. He built the very first Koga at his own home in Oranjewoud, near Heerenveen. Gaastra quickly decided to specify components only from exclusive suppliers, so as to meet the highest quality expectations. Once Koga had become an importer of Shimano components, a network developed including other Japanese cycle manufacturers. Among them was Miyata, a company which at this time had already been producing cycle frames for 80 years. Until 2010 Koga frames were produced by Miyata, and the suffix Miyata was placed after the brand name Koga.
Koga's starting point when developing new models is always to produce the very best product for the passionate (and demanding) cyclist. They dedicate a lot of attention to the finish, and carefully select a harmonious set of components. If that isn’t possible with existing components, they develop their own. This gives Koga bikes their distinctive appearance and stylish look. Less is more!
We offer only the highest quality European bike brands so Koga's enviable reputation for outstanding detail and exacting standards naturally fitted in perfectly.
