Take to the streets, trails, and gravel with Barron. Barron sports a durable 6061 alloy frame, Shimano Tourney drivetrain, and thick Kenda Kwest tires for an undeniably smooth ride, regardless of terrain. Leave the city grind behind and experience 21-speeds of blissful riding.

Not all roads are created equal, which is why we designed the Barron to conquer them all. Engineered to quickly adapt to any surface, whether cycling through the manhole covered city streets, trekking up steep hills, or taking a casual ride down your local bike trail, Barron was built to ensure you arrive with ease. 

A lightweight aluminum frame provides strength and agility while its Zoom suspension fork absorbs the shock of the road, ensuring an enjoyable ride. The Barron’s upright handlebars add a level of comfort by allowing for a more natural and relaxed riding position. The Kenda Kwest tires come equipped with a semi-slick tread and water dispersion grooves to provide all-weather versatility and the ability to ride in just about any environment.

Equipped with name brand components such as a Shimano Tourney 21 speed drivetrain and Megarange gearing, this bike allows for fast and easy gear changes, which makes cycling for your commute, fitness, or weekend ride a gratifying experience. Additional features such as a comfort saddle, twist grip shifters, ergonomic brake levers, and a sturdy rear mount kickstand provide everything you need for a day spent gallivanting through a variety of terrains.

    Measuring Inseam

    Inseam is the most important metric to consider when deciding on bike size. In order to take this measurement properly, follow these guidelines:

    1. Stand upright with your feet 6-8" apart.
    2. Using a tape measure or tailor tape, measure from the bottom of your foot to the top of the inside of your leg.
    3. Compare your inseam measurement to the standover height of the bike. You should have about an inch of space between your body and the top tube.

    Comfort, but bigger than expected

    I bought the Comfort to replace a 19.5" Jamis Citizen that was taller than I liked and had skinnier tires than I liked. The Medium size, 18" Comfort has exactly the same standover as the 19.5 inch Jamis! Oh well. I solved one of the two things I was after! I was a little concerned about moving from a steel frame to aluminum, and I can tell the difference in the way road shocks are transmitted. The front shock forks help. I replaced the seat immediately. It was OK, but not great. I may change out the seat mounting stem to a piston-type next. I love the graphite color, the wider tires, the higher handlebars, and the shifters. The Jamis had shift-grips too, but these are better. I am still dialing in the derailer range adjustments as the front derailer currently only likes to get on two of the rings, and the back only on 6 or the 7: the big ring in the back is not quite in range. I'll figure out the range adjustments over the next few rides. I should say that this is expected. Derailers are very analog in the way they are set up. You can set them up at the factory, but the bike really needs final adjustments on the road. Pay attention to the standover doc on this model! It says medium is 31" and I did not believe a 1.5 inch smaller frame (Jamis versus Retrospec) would have the same standover as the Jamis, but it does. If I were buying this bike again, I would get a small, and I'm 6 feet tall. I have short legs for my height and inseam is everything on something like this. I'll also replace the grips soon as I can find some short (to fit the grip-shift length) padded ones. These put my hands to sleep quickly (so did the Jamis....) The bike was well packed and easy to assemble. Took no time. All the stickers on the frame and parts made it easy. I never opened the manual. My daughter has a Retrospec Harper, and we are fans of the price / performance of these units. Sure: Some things need to be replaced (seat / grips), but the core is solid. Wheels, tires, gears, frames, etc are really good for the price, and it's easy to update the few things that bother us. The Harper came without a kickstand so that has been a challenge to deal with as it seems that type of bike (single speed / Fixie) does not have hardpoints for one.

    Great bike

    We bought this bike during covid and it came faster than bikes we purchased before. We put over 100 miles on it the first couple weeks and it has ridden smoothly, gears transition great and is super light weight. My husband originally said I gifted him something for me so he could ride bikes but he loves his bike so much and using it on different paths.

    Barron rocks!

    I am very pleased with my purchase. I am 6'5" and finding a bike that fits is challenging. The XL Barron Comfort is plenty big and my riding experience has been great so far. I even took it to a local bike shop to have them check my assembly to ensure everything was correct, and they were extremely impressed with the bike too!
