THIRD WARD 3 SPEED
The Third Ward is a classic Dutch style step through bike. Named after Milwaukee's historic Third Ward, this upright steel 3 speed bike is perfect for cruising around town and is geared for the city or neighborhood. Built around a simple and reliable Shimano 3 speed hub with an easy to use twist shifter, this bike features elegant 1 color paint and simple styling. Finished off by matching painted fenders, painted chain guard and a built in rack, this bike is perfect for any city.
We recommend that you size your bike based on your height and inseam. This insures you have proper clearance over the top tube, and the other fit dimension's will fall in line. The step-thru design of the Third Ward allows for a greater range of riders per bike size. Still have questions on the best size? Chat with us below...
The Third Ward may take it's styling from bikes gone by, but we added a dash of modern reliability with Shimano's Nexus 3 speed hub and Revoshift. Simple, fun and ready to roll!

My fiancée loves her new Third Ward and rides it a mile to work almost every day. The bike arrived promptly and everything needed for the installation was included. She’s very happy with it and loves how comfortable and convenient the design is. There are only 2 small opportunities for improvement. The rear fender arrived with a little bit of marring: a cluster of 7-10 small dents in a total area of maybe 4 square inches. You hardly see it since it’s low down, but it was just a little sad to have a new bike with small dents in it already. Second, I’m not super experienced with bike builds, but I was able to assemble this in less than an hour! It was really easy, though, it could have been helpful to include a small instruction sheet or a reminder to install the front fender before putting on the front wheel. Otherwise, the bike is fantastic and feels well built!
Love this bicycle
This step-through is the perfect fit for a small adult human! I'm 5'3", 100 lbs and ordered the adult small; rode for 11 miles the first time I took it out for a spin because it was just that comfortable--I adore it already.
