Bicycles are designed for many things - performance, recreation - but also transportation; and transportation bikes are the story of Fourth Floor Distribution. We're engaged in a larger story, a narrative of the resurgence bikes-for-transportation in North America. We're supplying the tools as cities become denser.
We began as the first coast-to-coast distributor of city and cargo bikes in North America. Our mission is the same now as it was then: to give bicycles back to the people as a form of transportation. To dignify the bicycle. To make our cities healthier. To landscape and beautify our cities with people on bikes. We are not just pioneers, but continue to be leaders in the field.
We are well-travelled entrepreneurs and search the globe for vendors who have well designed/proven products supported by strong service and customer care. Every brand we import is proven in its market and a leader in its field. We visit the factories, we create relationships, we go for bike rides, we fill up shipping containers. But, more importantly, we import a different value system. Objects that represent a different value system, that insert themselves into our landscapes and cause our landscapes to change. We import the tools to make a difference.
