The only thing Jefferson nurtures more than Mission Bicycle is his facial hair; and the only thing he wouldn’t do for us is miss Burning Man. He often has to be reminded that he does not in fact live in the shop, but has a home only a few hundred feet away.
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.
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.
Light & Long-lasting
Our framesets are hand-welded from double-butted 4130 chromoly steel by specialists in Taiwan. The tube walls are thinner in the middle to reduce weight, and thicker at the ends to retain strength. Guaranteed for 50 years.
Single Speed or Geared
Our single speed Valencia offers a simple, efficient ride at only 19 pounds. The internally geared Sutro features internally routed cables for a minimal aesthetic with full gearing versatility.
Form & Function
We start with the most dependable and elegant parts available, then offer upgrades from the highest quality manufacturers around the world like Chris King, Sugino, and Brooks.
