Bedford 7

 
 

 
Our essential commuter bike, the Bedford 7 is a fan favorite for getting around town without working up a sweat. Simple and utilitarian, the Bedford 7 beckons riders to hop on and go. The combination of a classic diamond frame accented by vegan leather saddle and grips, makes for our most sleek city bike. With 7 gears and puncture-resistant tires allowing you to conquer varied terrain, this bike is as versatile 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.

Nice ride but...

It is a smooth ride, definitely is a commuter cruiser which is fine. I bought it about a year ago and I just noticed that both of the rear rack eyelets popped off. So that stinks, kinda bad craftmanship if you ask me. I am a pothole dodger so not sure what made the eyelets pop off. Too bad.

Erik - we're glad you're enjoying the ride but even the one star you gave us seems generous given the failure of the braze-ons. We have reached out to you privately to get you sorted. Your bike was from a previous supplier and we've subsequently moved to a new factory with much improved QA processes. You can see more about them on 'Our Factory' page. Thanks again for sharing this feedback. -Ryan Zagata

Fantastic Bike

I am amazed at the performance of this bike. I was expecting good, but got great! This is the best riding steel frame bike I’ve ever thrown a leg over.

John - thanks so much for sharing and we're glad the Bedford 7 is exceeding your expectations. -Ryan Zagata

Bedford 7

Purchased this bike a few weeks ago, and it is really a wonderful ride. I live in a relatively hilly, suburban town, and it's perfect for cruising in the city and tackling some of those hills. Also, the customer service was great - they were super friendly on the phone. I would definitely buy from BBC again.

Thanks Sergio. So glad you're enjoying our Bedford 7. -Ryan Zagata

Best bike ever!

Seriously I can’t say enough about this bike. It’s so comfortable and stylish, I use it almost every day all around brooklyn. I got the Oi Bell and the water bottle cage from the website and it fits and looks awesome. Will be purchasing another one for my wife soon. Keep up the good work Brooklyn Bicycle :).

Thanks so much for sharing Fiton. Glad you are enjoying and we look forward to getting your wife on a bike when the time is right. -Ryan Zagata
