Since 2008, Mission Bicycle Company’s goal is 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. With hundreds of different options of frames, cranks, grips, and chains, and several options of accessories and components, Mission promises to build you the bike of your dreams.
The shop stands out for their level of customization and craftsmanship well as for the quality of materials used to create each bikes. One of their newest additions to their products is the fully integrated one-touch lighting system, which allows you to light up your bike and be safe on the road with a click of button. "Basically, the premise for doing that was cars come with lights for safety, and why shouldn't bikes?,” explained Mission’s marketing manager Brandon Splane.
Mission’s unique process of bike customization is made collaboratively with their team using their “world famous” design wall. "This is where we can hand-pick every component and really see your bike come to life, whether it’s the frame, or if you want to change up the wheel color. It’s all customizable,” said retail manager Nick Cabillot.
Mission Bicycle Co. holds its city and neighborhood in pretty high regard—from the shop’s name, given after the Mission District, where it’s located, to the in-house crafting of bikes and locally sourced materials, everything is made in San Francisco.
"The shop’s been here in this location for 8 years. We build everything from the frame up straight upstairs. We take our name directly from the neighborhood, so we hold the neighborhood in pretty high regard. We try to make a push to get involved with bike advocacy and get more bike lanes put in. We work with the SFBC to try and promote what they’re doing when we can. We love biking. We wanna get more people on bikes,” Brandon adds.
Mission Bicycle Company is located at 766 Valencia Street , San Francisco, CA.
