beautiful and functional with a few tweaks!

I love this rack! It looks really sleek on the bike and I get a lot of compliments on it! It's also really sturdy and functional -- however, it does cause the wheel to bend to the side due to the added weight so I also added a spring to the front wheel to keep it from falling over when the basket is installed. With the spring, the bike can stand up on its own with the kickstand. It's been great -- also definitely recommend a bungee cord with it! Have yet to see a higher quality or more aesthetically pleasing rack.

Thanks so much for sharing Kate. As you suggested, we strongly recommend a wheel stabilizer with this as the added weight of front carrier will cause the wheel to turn. You used the term 'bend' but I suspect you meant the wheel will turn when the bike is stationary. Thanks again. -Ryan Zagata

Nice rack

I have a brooklyn bike, the willow model. My husband installed the rack for me, he said it wasn't that easy to install and had to make some adjustments to the mounting hardware for the rack to fit. So with that said, if you are not very savvy at installing things maybe like the description says, to have it professionally installed. The rack is great, love the look of it and it is sturdy. I haven't used it yet for heavier items but it seem like it will be fine for a bag full of groceries or farmers market run. I docked it 1 star because of the difficult installation.

Thanks so much for taking the time to share your feedback Deebe, We're quick to highlight on the product page that this is best suited for professional assembly. We're glad you're enjoying. -Ryan Zagata

Superb company and product

- Hands down the most aesthetically pleasing bike basket out there -
I had a small issue with the wood stain and reached out to bbc for advise. They recommended putting a lacquer on the planks since I didn't like the weathering effect. Worked like a charm.
To my surprise they shipped out new planks and their sweet little tote to me the next day. I'm super grateful and amazed by their impeccable costumer service and quality of their product. Been gushing about them to everyone I can. Thanks again!

Thanks so much for sharing Albina and thank you for giving us the chance to make it right for you. We're thrilled you're enjoying your front bike rack. -Ryan Zagat

Bike rack review

No what I was hoping in terms of quality, one of the wood slabs was split broken right out of the package.
Very poor quality on the finish and welded seams, it was never polished”.. it has a rather unfinished look.
Oh and for future reference the screws that hold the wood to the metal should always be counter sunk,

Thanks for sharing Alejandro. We certainly wished you had reached out to us in advance of being disappointed enough to leave a non-glowing review. We handle issues like this when they arise. The wood on the crates needs to strike a fine balance between being durable but also light enough such that it's the not the source of unnecessary weight. On occasion, we have had pieces crack which is why we keep ample quantities on hand to address those rare instances. -Ryan Zagata

Best value I've seen

I ride my bike for groceries, shopping, takeout, and pretty much everything else, and this rack has been good for all of it. Compared to the rear racks that lots of my friends have, having a front basket style is way more convenient since I can just thrown bags or takeout containers on easily. I really wanted a rack like this instead of a cheaper basket for carrying heavy things like packs of beer, and it definitely does that job well. I weaved an old belt through the wood slats that I use to quickly cinch down any loads, which has worked great. I had to use p-clamps to install it to my fork, but it seems like a strong fit. The next closest rack that I could find was more than twice the price of this one, so I'd say that this rack is pretty great.

Thanks so much for sharing Alexander. -Ryan Zagata

City Bike Helmet by Thousand
Frances (Belmont, US)
Scooter Perfect

I bought this for my scooter-loving boyfriend. The look and function is PERFECT for scooter use. The snap allows quick-on-off for the urban transit connections and zipping to meetings in the city. The brim is just enough to prevent glare while still keeping the helmet compact for errands and trips to the grocery store. And did I mention that he LOVES the look of it? He said it distinguishes him from the bike crowd in a very smart way.....Still kicking it at 60!

Thanks so much for sharing Frances. We're glad you're finding many uses for the helmet. -Ryan Zagata

In a sea of boring bikes, I found Brooklyn bike, and I couldn’t be more happier with my Bedford. The city ride is so smooth, and can’t help but notice the heads turning when I ride by :)

Swept Back Handlebars
Blake Hebold (Falmouth, US)
Great Handlebars!

As a young bike mechanic I don’t have preferred bike component retailers. But these are perfect bars for cruiser vibe bikes. Everything (grips, brake levers etc) fit according to measurements. Great product, highly recommend it!

Thanks so much for the kind words and acknowledgment Blake. -Ryan Zagata
