Stylish commuter bike, comfortable ride

Whoever said diamond’s are a girl’s best friend has clearly not ridden the Franklin 8 speed! It brings me so much joy riding this stylish work of art. The seat cushion also makes the ride ultra comfortable! Best purchase decision I’ve made!

Thanks for sharing Mariam! We're thrilled you are enjoying your bike and that it's bringing you joy! -Ryan Zagata

Erica (Buffalo, US)
Everything a Commuter Should Be!

This bike is exactly what I wanted - easy to ride, comfortable, and pretty! I love the way I feel while running errands or rambling about my neighborhood. It’s a nice ride, and I’m grateful to own this stylish beauty!

Thanks so much for sharing Erica. We are glad you're enjoying your new Franklin 8. -Ryan Zagata

Great bike

Got the bike to be my main transportation to/from work and it is exactly what I was looking for. I was a little apprehensive having not taken a bike ride in years. Comfortable, stylish & easy on and off have made the transition an easy one. Ordering experience was fast and easy. Local shop experience was great too- good and speedy customer service.

Thanks so much for sharing Kylie. We're thrilled you're enjoying your Franklin 8 bike. -Ryan Zagata

JDog (Eugene, US)
Pretty Bike

Very cool bike! My Wife loves it. I wish I would have known about the clicking sound the 3-speed internal hub makes- (it's totally normal according to Shimano, just unexpected).

Thank you for sharing. As we shared previously, the internally geared hubs are a bit chatty by design. There is a lot of engineering that goes into getting all of these gears stuffed into a rear hub. -Ryan Zagata

Best Bike For Your Buck

If I could give my Brooklyn bicycle 6 stars, I would. Wait... I will! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Thanks for the clever use of the six stars Paul. It truly means the world to us that you're enjoying your bike so much. -Ryan Zagata
