Bedford Single Speed

 
 

 

Our essential commuter bike, the Bedford is a fan favorite for getting around town without working up a sweat. Simple and utilitarian, the Bedford Single Speed 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 a single gear and puncture-resistant tires ensuring minimal maintenance, this bike is 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.

great bike for city cycling

I'm 5'5" female & have really enjoyed using this bike - as the last reviewer noted, it rides very smoothly as a single speed. I don't have to navigate hills in Houston but it rides well on uneven sidewalks & roads throughout the city. Great as a commuter bike or to use for errands. Love the lightweight design and overall style of this bike - would highly recommend.

Thanks so much for sharing Karine. We are glad you are enjoying your Bedford. -Ryan Zagata

Love this bike!

I own the single-speed and live in Florida where commutes are very flat. This is the perfect bike for my location! I could not believe how smoothly it rides, especially up small hills since it is a single-speed! I would highly recommend this bike for the moderate, city-biker who is taking on paved paths and sidewalks. Also very lightweight and sleek.

Thank you so much for sharing Amanda. We are glad our Bedford is delivering on its promise. -Ryan Zagata

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
