"Great for Commuting"
My first Brooklyn Bicycle and I love it so far. Can’t wait to ride it again when the weather gets warmer
Got this bike last month and honestly it's so great! I got the beautiful seaglass color! I don't know much about bikes but Ryan was super helpful at making sure I found the right one down to what I should feel the best seat height for me would be. Pickup was super easy! They have a partnership with Silk Roads so it was great to be able to pick up my already assembled bike. 10/10 would recommend this bike to anyone who is just looking for a cute commuter style bike!
We love our new bikes. The matte denim paint and silver trim looks so good in person. Excellent build quality, good components, fun to ride, and great customer service from Brooklyn Bicycle Co.
My wife and I had been contemplating buying new bikes for a few years. After some pretty extensive reading and searching, we decided on the Lorimer and Roebling models. I had some anxiety about ordering a bike online and very nearly pulled the trigger on an REI Co-op bike, but I could not be more satisfied with my decision to go with Brooklyn. First the process - it was exactly as advertised. Online chat answered a few questions for me and was very helpful. Once ordered, I had made a mistake in buying components (added a chainguard I didn't need). They e-mailed me over a holiday weekend to check on it, got it corrected for me, and refunded all by the next business day. I also decided last minute to switch the rack I purchased and they made that adjustment for me as well. Notifications when it shipped and told me the bike shop it would be at. Two weeks later I got an e-mail that it was ready. The assembly was nearly flawless (a loose bolt on the rack caused it to slide during first use, but it was easily remedied). As for the bike itself, I love it. Aesthetically, it's awesome. These bikes ooze cool. The logo, the matte paint, the trim, everything is beautiful. It's a ton of fun to ride. Between the customer service and the quality, I don't think you can do any better.
I've been riding this kind of city bike for 20 years (Toronto and other places) and this bike is excellent. I like steel frames for the bit of butter you get in the ride, but this one has a smoother ride than others I've had. (And still have). I think it might be the frame geometry. It has a bit longer wheel base than my other bikes, and I think that may be what has improved ride quality. I have a similar bike in Toronto but with a 7 speed Shimano internal hub, and I wasn't sure if 3 speeds would be enough. But it is! In fact I wouldn't want more. One other reviewer said he put a smaller cog on the back to change the gear ratio. While the stock set-up is I'm sure right for most riders, I'm a big fit guy and I think I will do the same at some stage, as I'm cruising too easily in third gear and could use more speed. Another thing I appreciate about the bike is the comfortable seat and grips. I was thinking of doing a Brooks saddle, but not sure that will be necessary. Also the grips are great - vegan leather? i think that means fake leather, but it's really good fake leather. The grips have a little cushioning underneath which really makes them comfortable. The twist shifter is great too - very smart for quick shifting in the city to get out of somebodies way. This is a well thought out bike and great value. I only wish there had been a black one available. I was impatient so went with the white one in stock at the showroom in Brooklyn (which was an enjoyable visit in itself). But the ivory colour is growing on me... Anyway, exceeds expectations on all levels. Thank you.
This gorgeous beauty gives me serious riding! Second ride on it was over 15 miles and my body (including my seat) loved it!! Performance and comfort on the cutest frame ever!!!!!! Thanks, BBC!!! It’s a 5-heart rating!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
I was not so sure about getting a fixie bike but this ride is very smooth and comfortable even though I was out of shape
Also the team was very patient and kind while helping me figure out the model that was best for me.
I was really nervous about buying a bike online, but the entire process was so seamless. The service was great and so is the bike. I love its simple and sophisticated design, and how smoothly it rides. It is also light enough for me to carry it up and down 3 flights of stairs on a daily basis. So pleased with this purchased.
Although there at least 2 or 3 Brooklyn Bike in my town, I get a lot of”ooh” and “ ahh”s when I drive around town.
A bit heavier than I expected this bike feels really solid and rides great on the beach in low tide, when the sand is packed down. I love it!
Love all the features, the bike is perfect. I get compliments all the time on how beautiful it is! Had the luck to get it assembled directly at Brooklyn Bike Co since I live in Bk, and the build time was pretty quick, the attention was great.
I usamy bike everyday for work commutes and its great to feel great, safe and cool while riding it.
Also took it down to the rockaways and it glided the whole 26+ Mile ride!
Thank you BKBIkeCo!
Very accommodating, extremely thorough, helpful and produced a high quality product. Thanks!
The customer service was excellent. The bike shipped locally and was assembled quickly, and I feel proud cruising around on my colorful ride!
I wanted a smooth and comfortable ride for bopping around town and getting groceries, and I got it. For the money, it would be tough to find a better value out there for a new ride.
The materials used, welding, sealed bearings and geometry are all top notch. The double-butted chromoly steel frame has a good bit of flex also, which makes for a very forgiving ride. I decided to swap out a few components to suit my style and needs, but the stock kit is thoughtfully put together.
Most of all, Ryan and the team at BBC are amazing! It was like talking to friends in person. I felt very good with this purchase from start-to-finish.
I got this bike for my boyfriend as a birthday gift after his previous bike was stolen from our backyard. I still cannot believe how easy this surprise was to pull off. The bike was sent to a local shop only a mile away from my house and I was able to easily pick it up and bring it home. He was indeed surprised and says he absolutely loves his new Roebling. Thank you so much Brooklyn Bicycle for your exceptional customer service!
This bike is just what I was looking for. It’s lightweight and versatile over different terrain; the upright handlebar is comfortable and easy to steer. The internal gear system is very convenient for changing gears and works well for the area I live; if you live in a more hilly area you may want to consider the 7-speed. It’s very comfortable and the cream color is so pretty.
