Move to Dutch title "Stadsfiets"[bewerken]

Why the English words "city bike" in the title? This is Dutch Wikipedia, so shouldn't the title be "Stadsfiets"?

The stadsfiets is very popular in Holland, so why is this article so short?

Dear Mike, "city bike" and "stadsfiets" are imho not exactly the same words. My opinion is that bikeproducers introduced the term "city bike" here in the Netherlands. Stadsfiets in a lot of cities here means something like an old(er) bike so it it won't get stolen very quick but is usable in the city/urban areas. In general most of them/they dont have an external gearing system. Mountainbikes, recumbent/ racing and foldable bikes dont fall exactly in that category. There is a definition in the Dutch dictionary (Van Dale) about stadsfiets but I cant verify what it says about it right now. I will ask someone to look it up.
