Our bikes are shipped flat packed and need to be assembled locally. Depending on your level of skill working with bikes, you may choose to build the bike yourself. However many of our customers take their new bike to a local bike shop for assistance with assembly. Our bikes are built with a Shimano drivetrain and the assembly will be familiar to almost all local bike shop mechanics.
For deliveries in the United States, our orders are generally shipped via third-party freight networks. The majority of our orders are shipped with either ABF Freight or SAIA Logistics; however, the freight carrier can vary depending on your designated address.
ABF Freight and SAIA Logistics operate large nationwide networks of delivery depots. The depots are run independently and each depot operates its own unique fleet of trucks. For this reason, Baere Bikes cannot know in advance the size or class of truck that will be making your final delivery.
Most of our outbound shipments are booked as "Curbside Delivery", and our delivery fees are based on this class of delivery. This means the crate will be delivered safely to the curb in front of your property.
