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!

Thank you for taking the time to share Karen. We are thrilled you're enjoying your bike out there in the Midwest. -Ryan Zagata

Best bike I’ve ever owned!

The entire order process was seamless! The customer service team is amazing and so helpful! I have nothing but love for these guys and gals! 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! It rides smoothly and the gears are great! Not only that but my bike is beyond beautiful. Thank you Brooklyn Bicycle for being so kind and for making a product that I absolutely love.

Thanks for taking a moment to share your feedback Marissa. So glad to hear you are enjoying your bike. -Ryan Zagata

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.

Thank you for sharing Bonnie. We're thrilled you're enjoying your bike. -Ryan Zagata

AMAZING

Just picked up my first Brooklyn Bicycle, the Lorimer, here in Vancouver today and I already took it out on the trails in Stanley Park and through the streets downtown. I was super impressed with it! It’s incredibly light and super comfortable to ride! I’m nearly 5’4 and I got the 16/M - it fits perfect! I was also incredibly happy with the service at the shop I bought it from on Robson Street - they were super to work with. Looking forward to riding this bicycle all year round!

Thanks so much for sharing Jasmine. You're lucky to have access to Stanley Park - it's one of our favorites. Enjoy. -Ryan Zagata

LOVE IT!

Thanks for sharing Cyndi. -Ryan Zagata

Love Love Love This Bike

I'm lucky enough to have a commute that's well-suited to biking in a town that's...well, that's more generally not that well-suited to biking. When I went shopping, I was really focused on getting something comfortable, and this bike delivers; the riding posture is super easy-going, and the ride is *really* smooth. There actually aren't enough "o's" in the word "smooth" for how smooth it is. It just sails right along. What I didn't expect was that it would also look as good as it does...I hadn't even got it out of the bike shop that the Brooklyn Bicycle Co. sent it to for assembly before somebody remarked how pretty it was (and let me note in passing: the "Buy &Ride" program is brilliant). Had somebody in a work meeting comment on how sharp-looking it is. I posted a picture of it online and got the response "Super clean and dapper!", which seems to cover it pretty well.

So, in a nutshell: I'm not an experienced enough bicyclist to give you a good assessment of the technical details on this thing. But I CAN say that I'm having a blast riding it, that it draws all kinds of good attention, and that when you factor in the convenience of the shopping experience I can't imagine doing any better for the price.

Thanks so much for sharing such thorough feedback William. We are glad you're finding your Driggs to be smooth. -Ryan Zagata

What a wonderful bundle of goodness!

I bought this to go along with my driggs 3 speed I had on order and couldn't be happier. The bell is just right, the lock is sturdy and makes me feel secure about keeping my bike safe, and the lights work just fine. Not so bright to light my path at night but definitely bright enough to help others in cars see me. About the lights. One shipped defective and I got on the chat app here on the brooklyn bicycles site-which is run by real people and not some bot-and Alex got me a replacement in the ail in less than a week. Great products and great service! Highly recommended.

Thanks Brian. We just launched new lights that will very much light your path at night and they're rechargeable. Appreciate you sharing your feedback. -Ryan Zagata

Integrity

When a company delivers what they promised, and in perfect condition, they must be thanked and applauded.
I couldn’t be happier with my two bicycles and accessories.
Thank you.

Thanks so much for sharing Bill. We appreciate you sharing your experience and we're thrilled you're enjoying your bikes. -Ryan Zagata
