Ready To Ride

Ready To Ride Shipping

Get your bike delivered to your door 99% assembled.


If you live outside the San Francisco Bay Area, we highly recommend our Ready to Ride option. With Ready to Ride, the bicycle is shipped directly by FedEx to your home or office and arrives within 7-10 business days, depending on where you live. We have other delivery options too. 

Our professional bike mechanics build the bike for you 99% assembled with the wheels in place. All you need to do is unwrap the bike, complete a few simple assembly steps, and be riding in 20 minutes. With our Ready to Ride option, it takes longer to unpackage the bike from the box than it does to complete the final assembly of attaching the pedals, along with turning and tightening the handle bar. In our years shipping bikes Ready to Ride around the country, we've never had anyone contact us and tell us they don't know what to do to complete the final assembly. It's that easy. 

Ready to Ride is also our recommended solution for gift purchases to be sent anywhere in the contiguous US for a flat shipping and assembly fee of $135 per bike with the exception of our electric bikes. The cost to ship an electric bike Ready to Ride is higher so you will receive a separate quote for electric bike orders.

Inside the box you’ll find your bike, the seat with the seat post, the handle bars with the steering stem, as well as a parts box containing two pedals, a three-way hex Allen wrench, a 15 millimeter wrench, touch-up paint and an owner’s manual. This is all you need, other than a knife or scissors to open the box.

If you've purchased an electric assist bike, your bike will ship out wiithin 7-10 business days after placing your order, and should arrive to you within 10-15 business days.

There is also a one-page assembly guide included in the box all designed to make it easy for anyone. Our friends who aren't "mechanically-inclined" are amazed how easy it is to turn and tighten the handlebars, attach the pedals and seat post, and start riding in 20 minutes after opening your box. Our expert bike mechanics do all the hard work getting your bike 99% assembled. You just put the finishing touches with a few simple final steps.

Read what our customer Rick has to say about Ready to Ride:

"I received my FedEx shipment today as scheduled and just got through assembling my wife's Christmas present, an orange M8. We are now a two PUBLIC M8 family. Assembly was simple, especially when I followed directions. Your tools and touch up paint set are a very nice touch, especially the way the tools match the orange bike. Slick. This direct Ready to Ride shipment option is really the way to go. You clearly take more care putting your bikes together than my local wrench turners."

We also provide you 10 innovative ways to transform your cardboard bike box after you've finished assembling your bike.
