Designed in NYC for NYC.
A simple design means that your bike is built cost-effectively and is easy to maintain. It also means the bike is not obnoxiously plastered with some company's logo. Matte black has always been our most popular color — if you’re locking up outside, you don’t necessarily want the most eye catching bike in this city!
The shop has been designed and organized to make the process of buying a biking as simple and straightforward as possible. All the decisions about the bike are broken down into separate stations where the options are laid out very clearly.
We offer five handlebar options to cater to the riding styles of just about everyone: whether you're a casual weekend cruiser, a daily bridge commuter or a full-time courier. The quill handlebar stem is vertically adjustable by 4 inches to further satisfy aggressive or laid back riding preferences. The bikes come in your choice of single, 3 speed or 7 speed, each of which you can test ride on the streets before you buy to see which one feels right for you.
Every bike comes with your choice of saddle, and each saddle can be test ridden with any bike.
By cutting out all the middle men, we’re able to keep costs down and pass on the savings to you, the cyclist! We have an efficient system to get the bikes from the factory into your hands, without sacrificing quality or the ability to personalize your bike
Over the past 5 years, we've sold over 1,000 of these bikes here in Brooklyn, most from a storefront in Cobble Hill. Very few have come back with any warranty issues. We take quality control seriously, and take pride in designing and building bikes.
All TBT bikes are guaranteed to be free of any manufacturing or assembly errors. Our steel frames are built to last and are backed by a 5 year warranty. All bikes come with a 90 day warranty covering defects and minor adjustments of all components.
Single speeds have the minimal amount of moving parts, which means less parts to break or need replacing or maintenance.
TBT 3 speeds and 7 speeds feature internal gears, which are great for city / commuter bikes, and have many advantages over traditional gears. The gears are completely enclosed inside the hub of the rear wheel, and never get mucked up with dirt. Dirt slows down the chain, wears the components faster, and requires additional maintenance just to clean.
With internal gears, there are no derailleurs, meaning a clean, simple, straight chain line, and no chance that someone will bang into your derailleur while you're parked and render your bike unrideable. And you don’t have to worry about your chain falling off if you switch gears incorrectly.
