It’s a lovely bike and lighter than expected. I enjoy the more upright position so much!
Thank you for sharing Shannon. We are thrilled that you're enjoying your new city bike. -Ryan Zagata
These handlebars look great but the bar end shifters I meant to install won't fit since the diameter of the holes are very small. A huge bummer but I guess I should have anticipated this issue.
Thanks Asaf. The bars are 25.4 at the clamp and 22.2 at the grip so any bar end shifter would need to fit that diameter. -Ryan Zagata
Franklin arrived along with beautiful Autumn weather....A pleasure to ride and it has taken its rightful place in my bicycle line-up.
Thanks to Ryan and his crew for the great customer service and follow-up.

It was fun riding a bike again! I love the look of it and even after riding it for a month still looks amazing! Very nicely made

Our experience buying this bike and the bike itself were both really good. The bike was shipped to our local bike shop quickly and without a hitch. The bike itself is just beautiful. We bought this for an 11 year old girl. She loved it right away.
Many thanks for sharing Steven. We are thrilled that your daughter loves her Lorimer. -Ryan Zagata
I love this bike! It ride’s so smooth. It’s my first commuter. The gears shift like butter. It’s so comfortable. It shipped so quickly and was perfect from the start. We bought 2 and have already put about 30 miles on them. Taking them to Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard this weekend for my birthday. Everyone loves the color and the look. I couldn’t be happier.
Thank you for sharing your experience Will. It's great to learn that you're making quick use of the bikes and LOVE when our customers share photos. -Ryan Zagata
