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.

Handsome city commuter

I ride this a few miles to and from work and it handles it very smoothly, while looking good too. I recommend the Oi bell to go with it - it fits right in on the bike, and sounds really nice. I got the State front rack to strap my bag to when I'm commuting. The rack is a very slight misfit on this bike - it slopes forward a tiny bit - but it's very light, it fits with the look of the bike and it works. If I were to do it again I'd probably get the BK front rack for a perfect fit, even though it looks a bit heavier. All in all, this is a great bike.

Thanks so much for taking the time to share this review Brendan and we are glad you're enjoying your Bedford 3. I am assuming you purchased the adjustable rear carrier - you can actually adjust the strut arms that attach the carrier to the seat stays of the bike and that will easily level it off for you. Give us a ring and we'd be happy to walk you through it. Thanks again - Ryan Zagata

Great bike and great service!

I love this bike! It came in and looks even better than it did in the pictures! Not only has the bike exceeded my expectations, but the company has as well. I was nervous ordering from a company so far away from where I am (Kansas) without seeing the products but the staff answered all my questions and gave me the confidence that I had made the right choice.

We are thrilled you're enjoying your Bedford 3 Elizabeth and equally as excited that you took the time to acknowledge our team. Thanks for sharing. -Ryan Zagata

Bang for your buck!

I'm thrilled with my bike! Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, it is an absolute joy to ride around. I would absolutely recommend it whether you are a commuter or just looking to go on joyrides. There is nothing as good, in both style and substance, than this bike at this price!

Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback on the Bedford 3 Cem. It's one of our favorites here in the office. -Ryan Zagata

Great Bike.

The Bedford is a good solution for casual & or daily commuter. If you are looking to commute I would suggest getting a slightly higher gear ratio. Maybe you guys at BBC can make diffferent ratios an option before buying! Love the bike tho! Both Stylish & Functional!

Thanks so much Nile. For adjusting the gear ratio, most shops can quickly replace your rear freewheel to one with fewer teeth to provide the higher gear ratio it seems you are seeking. Thanks again Nile. -Ryan Zagata
