We recommend sizing down if you're in between sizes. Have a question on sizing? Check our bicycle sizing guide by clicking here.
The MOST IMPORTANT measurement when sizing a bike is your inseam length.
Don't base your inseam simply on your jean size.
The more precise, the better.
1. Stand with your back against a wall and spread your feet 6-8" apart.
2. Place a book between your legs and up against the wall, spine up; raise it until snug against your crotch (this mimics your bike seat).
3. Have another person measure from the top of the book (spine) down to the floor.
The Best Overall Commuter Bike
"The step-through frame makes mounting your bike effortless regardless of what you're wearing."
Best Bike for Beginning Commuters
"All the gears are inside the hub. The chain doesn’t move when you switch gears, so it’s easy to operate and maintain, and it looks nice."
Easy to Buy, Exceptional Service
"By all accounts, buying a Brooklyn online is a pleasant experience."
Back in April, my boyfriend and I were looking to get bikes. Since we’re local, Ryan went above and beyond and let us stop by the showroom (masked of course!) to get a better look at the bikes. We both decided on Franklin 7s even though they were sold out. We finally got them this week and WOW. These bikes are incredible — 100% worth the wait. We’ve already put a lot of miles in them and it’s only been a few days! Not only do the gears make hills feel like nothing, getting the bikes in and out of our apartment is a breeze because they are so light. And the riding posture is SO comfortable. We can’t wait to ride them to the beach and everywhere in between! Thank you Ryan and everyone at Brooklyn Bicycle Co and Silk Road Cycles — for an incredible product, unmatched customer service, and for making this neighborhood even more of a delight to live in.
This bike is a show stopper. It is a joy to ride and a joy to behold. Others look sadly at their bikes when they see this one. It is perfect-everything that is needed and not a single thing that isn't. Buy the best and you only weep once. Baguettes not included.
I bought this bike for my daughter's tenth birthday during the Covid-19 shutdown. Brooklyn Bicycle made sure the bike was delivered in plenty of time. My daughter loves the bike and it has been a welcome distraction for her during these crazy times! I highly recommend Brooklyn Bicycle Company!
I love my new Franklin 3 speed. Not only does it look great, it performs so well and is perfect for city riding or bike trails or any short trips to the store. It's the best bike I ever purchased and I would highly recommend.
I bought this bike a little over a month ago and am in love with it! Not only is it comfortable but it is an extremely smooth ride- and that's saying something because where I live the pot holes eat cars... I also wanted to comment on the "buy and ride" option that Brooklyn Bicycle Co. offers. I purchased my bike using this and could not have been more thrilled. The shipping was quick, the shop was close and convenient and the bike was assembled, tested, and ready for me to ride away- was that my desire. I also added a couple of accessories which we easy to place. Overall, if youre considering buying a bike- buy this one!
For size reference, I'm 5'3" and purchased the S/M. If I am sitting on the seat I can stand on my tip toes fairly easily- in case thats important to anyone :)
