Brooklyn Bicycle Company

We were exicted to be San Francisco's first dealer of Brooklyn Bicycles! We chose Brooklyn as our main bicycle brand because we believe that they are a good fit for those looking to explore San Francisco by bike.

 

Brooklyn's Dutch-style city bikes are smooth, comfortable, and well built. They come stock with a rack to carry stuff, a double kick stand to make parking a breeze, and fenders to keep you dry. Made of quality cromoly steel, they are strong and provide a fantastic ride due to the inherent qualities of steel. 

 

We have a fleet of women's and men's models available to rent or buy. 

Soma Fabrications

Designed in San Francisco and hand made in Taiwan, Soma Fabrications offers a compehensive range of steel bikes for any style of riding. They have a well made, nice looking road selecion including 2 lugged models.



I (Uri) have been building Soma frames and stocking their products for the past 18 years.  They have grown from initially offereing a few models to their current catalogue of 24 frames.

Surly

Designed in Minneapolis and hand made in Taiwan. Surly is another company that is devoted to quality and affordable steel bicycle frames. They are a dedicated group of cyclists who are excited to make sweet bikes. 

 

Surly offeres a wide variety of frames including several "fat bikes" and adventure bikes. They are know for making tough frames that can take a beating.  

 

I have been building their frames for 17 years. My first cross race bicycles was a Surly Cross Check and it's still an awesome frame!

All-City

All-City are connected to Surly through their parent company Quality Bicycle Products (QBP), the largest bike part distributor in the world. They grew out of an interest to make a hightly detail oriented product. Careful design stands behind All-City frames and can be seen in details like the stainless dropouts. Like Surly, All-City focuses on steel.​

Here is a custom Nature Boy that we built for city stomping. 650b 47mm wide tires and one gear to rule them all.
