I had been looking for a modified bike for some time and was very pleased when I came upon Bike Friday’s website a few years ago.  After the first few initial conversations regarding modifying a Bantam bike, I knew I had found the most appropriate company to fit my biking needs.  The staff were very knowledgeable of the adjustments needed in the design for my particular biking needs and were very flexible while I was pondering various choices.

The most impressive experience with Bike Friday was when some months later I discovered I needed one part of the bike to be replaced to suit my comfort while riding.   Bike Friday not only quickly supplied this adjusted custom part but also shipped it to me at no cost.  My most recent purchase from Bike Friday has been a suitcase to transport my folding bike.  Everything needed to pack the bike was provided including detailed instructions.  I have been very grateful for Bike Friday's online instructional support in taking care of my bike and learning how to pack and unpack the bike during my travels.

Thank you.

Perfect bike for any LP/Achon who needs to either get around, stay active or exercise.  This bike is super light and convenient to use around town.  I love the 8 speed option along with the ability to adjust the other bike components to fit your physical needs.  I cannot imagine my life in California without this bike and recommend this bike to anyone who is in the market.  People actually stop me all the time to comment on the "awesomeness" of the bike and look.  

Great job Bike Friday!!

Last weekend, I participated in the 2006 Chicago Bike the Drive 30-mile ride. It was a very enjoyable ride and I was able to complete it in the allotted time, something I would not have thought possible a few years ago. So, I can enthusiastically recommend a Bike Friday to other people with dwarfism and any one else!

    We are interested in the Bantam bike for our daughter with Achondroplasia, do you have any available right now? She’s interested in the electric option. Thank you!

      Jill, I know you already got a bike on order, but for anyone else that’s looking at this, we custom make nearly every bike so it’s rare that we ever have any stock. However, we’re happy to build one!

    I have just located your website. I have a grandson who I would like to get him a bike for his Birthday. His Birthday is June 20th . He will be 11 years old. I would like to know what you would need in order for to to make him a Custom bike. He has several cousins and a brother that is forever visiting grandma who has a place for them to ride their bikes which you can see the sadness that he doesn’t have a bike to ride. Please let me know what aI would need to send you and what is your payment plan. Lastly how long does it take for you to customize a bike for someone like Tristan.

    1. Walter

      Barbara, we would be happy to help out. Before I delve in too deep into the details, I should probably get some more clarity on what the situation is. Does he have some special needs that prevent him from getting a traditional bike? I can make some assumptions based on the bike you’re looking at, but want to be sure. Please get in touch with me directly and we can discuss this more. Thanks!
