Best Bike Ever!

The Brighton bike is the MOST comfortable bike I’ve ever rode. I love it!

Thanks for sharing Deb. Glad to hear you're enjoying your Brighton 7! -Ryan Zagata

Beautiful, comfortable, and all-around awesome!

I love my Brighton!

It had been 16 years since I last rode a bicycle, and I spent the last few months researching bikes that would allow for comfortably navigating the city while looking cool. The Brighton fit the bill!

I was wary about purchasing a bike online, but the process was super easy and my bike was assembled and ready for me five days after ordering it.

I've had my bike for about a month now. Casually riding around my city is fun and comfortable, and the extra gears make climbing hills a breeze. I haven't had issues in the various terrains out here between city streets and the many lakefronts. And many, many people have commented on how cute my pink retro bicycle is.

Best purchase I've made in a long time! I'm currently waiting on a front rack I just ordered from the site, and can't wait to accessorize my new rockin' ride some more.

Thanks so much for sharing your experience Sarah. We're so glad you're enjoying your cruiser bike. -Ryan Zagata

Fun ride, great service!

I ordered my Brighton after a year or so of occasionally shopping bicycle websites. Brooklyn Bikes had a sale and I finally ordered one in a pretty coral color. The local bike shop that it was sent to was wonderful and I am in love with my bike. I ride paved trails and 7 gears is perfect for that. It has a nice ride, great big seat for my big seat!

Thanks so much for sharing Renee. We are thrilled that you are enjoying your new cruiser bike. -Ryan Zagata

Very Happy to have one

I haven’t had a bike in years... why? Because I am short person and the only ones I could potentially buy were kids’ bikes. My middle child recently learned how to ride her bike so I got motivated to look for one that would accommodate my height. I came across this brand in the internet and I bought it. It is amazing! I mainly ride it on the weekends to join my daughter and husband.

Thanks so much for sharing Claudia. We're glad you're able to keep up with your kiddos. -Ryan Zagata

One of a kind!

Although there at least 2 or 3 Brooklyn Bike in my town, I get a lot of”ooh” and “ ahh”s when I drive around town.
A bit heavier than I expected this bike feels really solid and rides great on the beach in low tide, when the sand is packed down. I love it!

Thanks so much for sharing Zila. We're thrilled you're enjoying your Brighton 7. The Brighton 7 has wide cruiser tires which, while great for riding on the packed beach, do add a considerable amount of weight to the bike. -Ryan Zagata

Cadillac of bikes

Now 56 years old I have owned many bikes. I have never owned a bike that rides as smooth as my new Brooklyn bike. I got the Brighton 7 in bright blue. I absolutely love the seat (so comfy)!!! It also has 7 speeds. Just enough for my trek to work or just a weekend joy ride. ❤️❤️❤️

Thanks so much for sharing Cheryl. We're thrilled you're enjoying your Brighton 7 cruiser bike. -Ryan Zagata

What Are the Differences Between the Franklin and Willow Step-through Models?

Looking at the Franklin and Willow, but not quite sure how the models compare? No worries – we get this question a lot, so we’ve put together a quick rundown on what sets these models apart!

 

#TLDR (AKA Too Long Didn't Read)? Here's a Quick Summary:

 SIMILARITIES DIFFERENCES
FRAME GEOMETRY HANDLEBARS
COLOR-MATCHED FENDERS & CHAINGUARD SADDLE
3-SPEED INTERNAL GEARING GRIPS
KICKSTAND INCLUDED TIRE COLOR
REAR CARRIER
CHAIN COATING
7-SPEED GEARING
FRAME MATERIALS

 

 

1. HANDLEBARS

This is probably the most notable difference between our step-through models. With the Willow featuring our Swept-Back Handlebars. This means a much more upright (European-style) riding position (think sitting in a chair) that is well suited for leisurely riding.

The Franklin models feature our Relaxed Ride Handlebars, which are slightly more aggressive and ideal for both commuting and leisurely weekend rides.

 

2. TIRES

The Willow comes with cream tires, whereas the Franklin sports black tires. Do note that regardless of color, all our tires offer an added layer of puncture resistance.

 

3. ACCESSORIES

The Willow is our premium model and includes a rear carrier, as well as an upgraded sprung saddle and grip set from Selle Royal’s Royalgel™ line.

The Franklin features Selle Royal Vegan Leather saddle and grips. Please note that this bike does not come with a rear carrier. If you would like to purchase a rear carrier for this model, you will need a 26” carrier for the S/M Franklin and a 700C carrier for the Large Franklin model.

Both models come with color matched fenders and chainguard, as well as a kickstand.

 

4. RUST-PROHIBITIVE COATING & GEARING

As our signature model, the Willow has a few additional premium features including a rust-prohibitive coating on the chain and internal gearing resulting in less maintenance and more riding.

The Franklin 3 model includes internal gearing (just like the Willow), whereas the Franklin 7 has an external 7-Speed derailleur.

 

5. FRAME MATERIALS

On a more technical note – the geometry on both frames is identical, however the Franklin and Willow models are made from different materials. Are you currently thinking “WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?! I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT BIKES!!”? Do not fret – we totally get it! Take a breath and read on…

The Willow frame is made with double-butted 4130 Chromoly Steel. We use a stronger grade of steel, which allows us to use thinner tubing resulting in a lighter frame.

The Franklin frame is crafted with specially engineered high-tensile steel. What does this mean? We are able to offer a similar bike of a more moderate price point. Our Franklin model is the most economical step-through model in our portfolio of bikes (as well as a team favorite)!

Still have questions on sizing (or anything else)? Email us or schedule a concierge call with our team. We’d love to help!

 

Don’t forget: All of our bikes include Free Shipping & Professional Assembly.
