Bedford 3

 
 

 
Our essential commuter bike, the Bedford 3 is a fan favorite for getting around town without working up a sweat. Simple and utilitarian, the Bedford 3 beckons riders to hop on and go. The combination of a classic diamond frame accented by vegan leather saddle and grips, makes for out most sleek city bike. The low maintenance internally geared hub and puncture-resistant tires make the Bedford 3 as economical as it is handsome.

    The skinny tubes of Bedford's frame lend a supple, lively feel to the ride while neutral comfortable geometry provides a nice balance of swiftness and stability.

Bedford Single Speed

Bought this bike for my girlfriend for the holidays after she had been looking at bikes for awhile. It's just what she had wanted. Sleek, lightweight, super smooth ride, comfortable, and looks awesome! Haven't had any complaints yet. It's perfect for commuting or just going on a chill ride downtown. I haven't bought a brand new bike in years, as most of my bikes are vintage bicycles, but this one lived up to my expectations. Would definitely recommend Brooklyn Bikes.

Thanks for sharing. Glad you're enjoying the bike. -Ryan Zagata

Snappy 3-speed city bike

I live in Brooklyn and I've been riding a single speed, freewheel bike for a few years. I was getting tired of standing up to pedal whenever I kicked off from a red light or encountered a hill, so I bought this 3-speed bike. If you're looking for a solid ride for city use (basic commuting, hauling groceries, etc), then this bike fits the bill. It's not a featherweight road bike, but that's not what I was looking for. I installed a rear rack and it's all good to go. The price is better than the big names out there, and the components are just as high quality.

Thanks for sharing. The Bedford 3 is my personal favorite bike in our portfolio - so glad you feel similarly. -Ryan Zagata

Bedford 7 is Amazing

It's such a great bike to get you from anywhere! From Downtown to the Rockaways! Its super fast and sleek, and I get compliments everywhere I go. It switches between gears with ease, and it was such a great investment! I love this bike! People have stopped me asking abut the bike, and I always recommend they head into the showroom and talk to Ryan! Best bike and experience I have had for a long time!
