Every bicycle includes free shipping AND professional assembly through our Buy & Ride Program. Once your bike ships, you'll be riding within 14 business days.

Our number one priority is making your bicycle purchase as simple as possible- while also ensuring the bicycle you receive is up to our stringent quality requirements. That's why we ship every one of our bicycles to a hand-selected local bike shop for professional assembly. Once it's fully assembled and ready to ride, you simply head into the shop and roll out the door!

Our industry leading Buy & Ride program was the first of its kind. Through years of experience, and a large network of partner shops across the country, we've perfected the process.

There are several factors to consider when choosing your new bike, and we're here to help!

We highly recommend reading our Bike Buying Guide, along with watching the video. You'll want to consider your preferences on things like frame style and gearing range, and take into account how you'll be using your bike, and on what terrain.

We also recommend taking our Bike Finder Quiz which will point you in the right direction based upon your considerations. 

And finally, it's important to note that bike sizing is not universal across brands, nor across models. Each bike has a unique geometry which means different sizing. Please consult the sizing guide recommendations.

If you have any questions or are between sizes, please contact us for personalized guidance and we'd happy to assist!

Great question! While both bikes offer a wide gearing range with puncture-resistant tires, the Bedford offers a more relaxed riding position than the Roebling.

Absolutely! The Bedford has all the braze-ons (mounting points) you'd need to add things like fenders, a rear rack, a front basket, or a water bottle cage. No need to worry about a kickstand as the Bedford already comes equipped with one!

Bedford 8 Speed

What a sweet ride! Hadn't had a bike in several years. First ride, on the way home from the shop—Silk Road Cycles rules—gliding around Greenpoint on my new Bedford 8 Speed, the sun setting, a crisp breeze blowing, I was thinking, "Oh yeah, this is the stuff." Can't recommend Brooklyn Bicycle Co. enough! Great bikes, great service!

Oh yeah Josh, this IS the stuff. Thanks so much for your enthusiastic review and welcome to the Brooklyn Bicycle Co. family. We will be on the lookout for you around the hood. -Ryan Zagata

Love the Bedford 8

I like a nice zippy road bike but don't like to hunch over it. Been wanting a bike like this for a long time!

Thanks for the feedback! We're glad you're enjoying your new Bedford 8 Speed bike! -Ryan Zagata

A lot of bike for the money

My Bedford 8 was inexpensive but not cheap. Good components, great ride, beautiful bike. It’s got everything you need in a commuter, around town bike and no gimmicky bells and whistles that you don’t need. Brooklyn’s customer service quality is not found very often these days. Real folks you can talk to and questions answered and issues taken care of quickly. I’m very happy with my purchase.

Thanks so much Jesse. We are thrilled you are enjoying your Bedford and we appreciate you acknowledging the team's effort in providing a great experience. Enjoy the ride. - Ryan Zagata

I'm that guy!

I'm the guy who saw Jase and his new Bedford! Loved it so much I went home and ordered one. And don't worry Jase I got the black not the green! So there'll be two Bedfords cruising around Burleigh Heads now!

HI Ian,
Thanks a bunch! It's awesome to hear that you loved it so much! The black is super sleek! Two Bedford's cruising around Burleigh Heads will definitely turn some heads! Enjoy the ride, and here's to making the streets a bit more stylish!

Cruising Burleigh on the Bedford

Picked up The Bedford 8 a week ago, and got to say - it's the bees knees!
This beautifully designed bicycle is comfortable to cruise on and also has great speed when kicking up the cadence.
It is also getting a lot of attention around town - one guy said to me yesterday - "OMG - this is gorgeous" and he ain't wrong.

100% recommend

Hi Jase, Thanks for the being apart of the Brooklyn Bicycle Co family. Enjoy the ride!
Sam.
