Michael (Williamsburg, US)
Excellent bike.

I'm very satisfied with my purchase. The bike fits me perfectly and is comfortable. But it also begs to be ridden fast. Whoever designed the frame knew exactly what they were doing. Outstanding customer service as well. Can't ask for more.

Thanks so much for sharing Michael. We're thrilled you're loving your new Bedford 8 City Bike. -Ryan Zagata

Ride in style

In a sea of boring bikes, I found Brooklyn bike, and I couldn’t be more happier with my Bedford. The city ride is so smooth, and can’t help but notice the heads turning when I ride by :)

Thanks so much for sharing Raphael. We're thrilled you're enjoying your Bedford. -Ryan Zagata

Andrew Toth (Grosse Pointe, US)
Bedford 3 Speed

I am really digging my Bedford 3 Speed. My first ride brought back wonderful memories when I was a kid in South Africa riding my BSA 3 speed bicycle. I get a lot of compliments. Brooklyn Bicycle Co. you guys are crushing it!. Detroit Bicycle Co. a Brooklyn Bedford 3 Speed is on the road... Watch out.

Thanks Andrew. We're glad you're enjoying your bike. -Ryan Zagata

Richard (Clarksville, US)
excellent Bedford pleases father and daughter

My daughter loves her new Bedford. She's limited to early recreational rides now because it's so hot in Tucson but it will be her daily commuter come October. She hadn't had a decent bike or ridden regularly in 20 years, and her Bedford immediately gave her the confidence to hit busy city streets. She loves the elegant look of her 'raw' bike; I like the solid and reliable frame and components. We're both happy.

Thanks so much for sharing Richard. We're thrilled your daughter is loving her new bike. -Ryan Zagata

Joseph Engelbrekt (Brooklyn, US)
Bedford 3 - Coo

I had been cycling through different bike brands all winter long. Really spinning my wheels about it. Finally, I came across Brooklyn Bicycle Company after a long and tiresome process. I pumped the brakes on buying from another brand and decided to get the Bedford 3. During my first ride, the bike spoke volumes. And not to switch gears, but the staff was incredibly helpful and the buying process smooth - never an uphill battle. Above all else the bike was reasonably priced, even after I adjusted for inflation.

You won’t regret this bike, it’s honestly amazing. I’m actually trying to get my friend to buy one right now, but he prefers unicycles. Yeah, he struggles socially and can’t handle-bars! It’s a vicious cycle.

This is literally the best bike I’ve ever owned.

Shout out to the folks at Silk Road Cycles, you folks are wheelie nice.

Thanks so much for sharing Joseph and for the seemingly futile attempt to get your mate on one of our steeds. We also appreciate you acknowledging the efforts the team puts forth to make sure things go smoothly. -Ryan Zagata
