Great LA Commuter Bike

This is a fantastic commuter bike. It looks great and performs really well for shorter journeys. I was in between sizes and it was suggested by CS to select the smaller sizing, however if I'd had my time again I would definitely select the larger size as I think the frame size would be more comfortable for longer rides (this is the only reason for 4 and not 5). The 3 speeds are fine for commuting however if you think you'll need to tackle anything more than a mild incline, I would definitely suggest the full 7 speeds. The process was quick and easy, the guy at the bike shop in Culver City that assembled it was really friendly and almost as excited about the bike as I was!! All in all, very happy and have recommended the product to plenty of friends!

Paul - so glad you're enjoying your Bedford. If you want to lighten up on the gearing, switching out the rear freewheel to one with another tooth would do the trick. Thanks again for sharing. -Ryan Zagata
Great bike, wish they made it smaller

Most places I looked before this had “small” bikes that fit a 5’4 person like myself, so I stupidly ordered this one without checking their size chart. I’m going to try and make it work, but I’m a little disappointed. I would never consider a 5’6 - 5’11 person “small.” However, since it was my own mistake, I can’t knock it down any stars. It is a great bike. It’s well-made, beautiful, and rides smooth. The fact that they take care of the shipping and assembly for you, so you get the bike at the actual price listed, is awesome. The quality, the style, and the ease and speed of delivery deserve 5 stars. It’s just unfair not to make this great bike for short people!

Thanks for sharing Molly. I'm glad you had a great experience with us. The sizing charts are posted for each bike and we always encourage customers to confirm their sizing before purchasing. -Ryan Zagata
Couldn't be happier

The Bedford single speed is exactly what I was looking for, and it truly stands out for the quality of its components. Plus, it's a couple pounds lighter than the it's similar product at Linus (26 vs 30 lbs), making it a lot easier to get around the house, on to the bus, etc. And, goes sort of without saying, it's beautiful. Very happy. Perfect for quick commutes around town or a longer work commute so long as the terrain is relatively flat. I rode it to a work meeting last week, 10 miles each way, and it was a joy.

Thanks so much Chas for taking the time to share this review. We're glad the Bedford is delivering for you. -Ryan Zagata

Amazing customer service. Beautiful bike. Happy boyfriend. Such an easy, quick process and everything turned out perfectly. The boyfriend loves his birthday gift.

Thanks Fiana. Thrilled that your boyfriend is loving his bike. -Ryan Zagata
Save the knobbies!

I was looking for something very, very simple for errands and spontaneous short rides on the local bike path. I really don't like using my high performance mountain bike for that (pavement riding) as I consider it junk miles on an expensive drive train and off-road tires. The performance road bike is over the top for the same purpose. This is perfect! It rides like butter and is so quiet and comfortable. Quick to grab off the porch and just "git 'er done"! Love it. I shopped in 3 counties looking for something like this and found it actually very close to home. I win!

Sherry - we are thrilled that you are loving your Bedford. Thanks for sharing your feedback. -Ryan Zagata
