THIRD WARD 3 SPEED
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!

Love This New Ruby Red Bike
Everything was easy to assemble. Came with all the tools needed. Bike gears engage smoothly. So happy to ride it everywhere!
Quality bicycle for a reasonable price
We've purchased 2 of the Third Ward bicycles now; one for my daughter and then the most recent one is my wife's new bike. These bikes were clearly designed and built by people who know what they are doing; the bikes themselves are kept simple but the components used are quite impressive. In these bikes, you are getting the same Shimano 3 speed hub you would get on a much more expensive bike. One complaint they've had is that the seat itself isn't the most comfortable, but this is something that is easily upgraded later. Additionally, I wish the front sprocket was compatible with a full coverage "chain case" as is typical on dutch commuter bikes, but this particular design (kind of a domed cage) seems to prevent that. It's easy to add accessories to these to make them practical commuters; for example on my wife's we've added a cafe lock, double kickstand, and a dynamo to power lights (from hollandbikeshop.com). My feeling after purchasing, assembling, and riding these bikes for a few months now is that this was money well spent. There is an excellent ratio of quality to price in these bikes. One other thing that was impressive was shipping... both bikes that we ordered came VERY quickly after the order was placed.
Great Around Town Bike
My Third Ward bike is stylish as well as functional. I use it to bike to work as well as my weekend Farmer’s Market run. I ordered my bike on a Saturday and had it shipped to a local bike shop. I was rolling on Thursday afternoon. The folks at Fyxation are awesome!
