For reliability & easy climbing in super hilly areas like San Francisco & Seattle
For a smooth long-lasting ride on unpredictable urban terrain
For all-terrain, no worry riding
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!
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.
Amazing customer service. Beautiful bike. Happy boyfriend. Such an easy, quick process and everything turned out perfectly. The boyfriend loves his birthday gift.
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!
Huge fan of my bike. Rides like a breeze. It's easy to manage based on weight and design is well crafted. Perfect for my urban commute to work.
