It’s not necessarily the bike itself that gives this five stars, but the experience as well. This bike was the fourth, yes there FOURTH bike I purchased online after a series of no ships and canceled orders from stores. What I love about it: — Retrospec shipped it one or two days after I ordered. — It came mostly-assembled. My husband and I were able to assemble it within 45 minutes and we are not handy people. It was simple to put together with good instructions. — It’s cute! I snagged the black Beaumont as it was the last bike in stock and it’s vintage-looking and trendy. — The bike rack on the back as well as the bell and kickstand were nice features. — Handlebars are comfortable. — I’m 5’3. I have the seat almost to the lowest position but not quite. It would work for people shorter (or quite taller) than me as well. The only thing I don’t love is the seat isn’t super comfortable. It’s not the worst in the world but not the best. All in all if these come back in stock and you’ve been eyeing, go for it!!
This bike is ok. I was really excited when I got the notification they had restocked. I feel like ever since I got it there has been issues. First the bell doesnt work, not a big deal buy annoying. The breaks are the worst part, we ended up taking it to a bike store and they said we should put on different ones that the ones they came with were low quality. It also makes alot of sound when I ride, first it was the pedals, then it was the chain. Super cute bike, will be great once we get some modifications on it done (more money to spend on it). Also, the basket we ordered would not fit on the front handles (Apollo Steel/Mesh), which cost more to ship it back then it did to buy it. Just buy one from Target or a bike store. Overall for the cost its not horrible, but just be prepared you may have to put some more money into it.
It was worth the wait. (Due to high demand I was on the wait list). Great city bike. I really enjoy riding it. Super smooth and easy to assemble. I’m getting so many complements. If you are looking for a city bike this is it.
I searched high and low for a bike that’s easy to ride, has major style points, is affordable, and most importantly, fits my 5’0” frame- this bike meets all those requirements! I was skeptical after reading another review about sizing being an issue, but was delighted to find out that the Step-Through Beaumont is a perfect fit for a shortie like me. I have had trouble in the past with other bikes being too big for me, and was actually looking into 24” bikes for this reason, but I am so glad I took a chance on this one anyway. The step-through frame, adjustable seat and handlebars make it possible for me to get my toes on the ground safely. Do not hesitate if you are petite like me...it will work for you! This bike is the highlight of my quarantine summer!
Outside of the wrong color being sent...The Bike and everything about the purchase process was great!!!! Awesome gift for my wife, she loves it!
