Very Practical

I recently moved to a bike friendly area and figured I can run errands and go shopping on a bike. I researched a lot and went with the Franklin 3. It's sturdy and the upright positioning helps me see where I'm going. I love taking it shopping and to the community garden. I got a bike trailer to carry things and that worked well. Definitely got my money's worth. Highly recommend.

Thanks so much for sharing Abraham. We are glad the Franklin 3 is delivering on its promise. -Ryan Zagata

Enjoying my Franklin!

Just had my first ride on my Franklin 3 speed. Loved it! Easy gear change and a smooth ride. Also purchased the rear carrier. Looking forward to some great rides as the weather continues to get better in the Midwest!

I preordered the Franklin 3 and I am so happy I’m finally out and about riding! The bike is amazing and the features are awesome. I’ve never had such an amazing bike!

So classic!

I love the classic lines and style of the Franklin. I get compliments on it all the time. I especially appreciate the internal gears. Low maintenance! Even the owner of the bike shop where I picked it up was impressed! That says a lot! Thanks for a great bike that's a pleasure to ride and to look at.
