What We're All About

Mission Bicycle Company was formed in 2008 with a simple premise: to build the most beautiful, practical and customizable bikes on the market. Each bike is designed by its rider and then built by hand in San Francisco, CA. Either in person or online, we'll walk you through every step of designing a bicycle that fits your needs and your personality.

Our Bikes

San Francisco bred,
in 250+ colors,
with 8-speeds or 1,
our bikes are built
just for you.

Hand-Built

With Pride & Skill

Every Mission Bicycle we sell is custom designed and hand-built, one at a time, by expert mechanics in our shop on Valencia Street in San Francisco's Mission District.

Geometry

Built for City Life

Designed by celebrated local framebuilder Emmanuel Eng, our framesets blend comfort with efficiency and agility, offering an upright, fast, and responsive ride.

Construction

Light & Long-lasting

Our framesets are hand-welded from double-butted 4130 chromoly steel. This means the tube walls are thin in the middle to reduce weight, and thick at the ends to retain strength. Guaranteed for 50 years.

Options

Single Speed or Geared

Our single speed Valencia offers a simple, efficient ride at only 19 pounds. The fully geared Sutro features internally routed cables and is the lightest and lowest maintenance, customizable city bike available.

Colors

The Visible Spectrum

Your Mission frameset can be powder coated (far more durable than conventional wet paint) any of 250+ colors. Browse our gallery for inspiration or view the full color chart.
