Beautiful bike, easy ordering

I was a little nervous about ordering a bike online, but I decided to give it a shot based on the positive reviews. I was pleasantly surprised by how easy and quick the process was from ordering it to picking it up at my local bike shop. The Franklin 8 Speed looks and feels amazing. It is pure quality, through and through. Picking it up at my local shop introduced me to a great group of bicycle experts, which was an added bonus.

Thank you for sharing Angie and thanks also for sharing your experience with your local shop. Our partners are such an integral part of the experience that we love hearing feedback. Thanks again. -Ryan Zagata

Makes me smile every time I see it

The bike provides a smooth ride and I genuinely look forward to using it. Unlike some bikes I've owned in the past, this one is just as much a joy to look at as it is to ride, I'm so glad I chose it.

Thank you so much for sharing your feedback and your photo. We are truly thrilled that you're enjoying Franklin 8 city bike. -Ryan Zagata

Fall in love with my Franklin 8 Speed!

I’m so glad to purchase this Franklin 8 Speed because after I rode my bike, I realized there are a lot of small hills around my neighborhood. I can easily ride my bike and do some small errands too! The bike is stylish and it is exactly what I wanted (like European style). The handlebars are very comfy and I don’t have to bend down my shoulders. I’m 5”2 and went with S/M size! It’s lovely!

Thanks so much for taking the time to share your feedback Yuchi. We're thrilled you got 8-speed to tackle those hills. -Ryan Zagata

Love my Franklin 8 Speed!

I love how stylish my new bike is, it's perfect for cruising around my neighborhood and running errands. I added a rear frame mounted bike seat on the back so my child can join me on trips. The handlebars are very comfortable and I'm super glad I went with the 8 speed especially because there are some small hills where I live and I have extra weight with my daughter on the back. Brooklyn Bicycle offers some great options for accessories, they are all so good looking, but so far I only added a Nantucket basket to hold my phone, keys, and other little things, it's very spacious. I'm 5'7" and glad I went with the S/M size, it's perfect.

Thank you so much for sharing this photo along with your feedback. We're glad you are having some great adventures on your new city bike.-Ryan Zagata
