Comfortable, reliable, and deceptively sporty.
Our essential commuter bike, the Bedford 8 is a fan favorite for getting around town without working up a sweat. Simple and utilitarian, the Bedford 8 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 eight gears and puncture-resistant tires allowing you to conquer varied terrain, this bike is as versatile as it is handsome.
Sportier than it looks
Meticulously designed to achieve the perfect balance of classic styling and performance, the Bedford is suited for any type of riding - whether you're cruising around town or racing to work.
Ready to get you there
