Love my Lorimer

One of my best purchases of all time. My Lorimer bicycle is a classic beauty. I’m just shy of 5’2 and the medium is a great fit for me. I’ve had other pretty bicycles before but the combination of simple yet thoughtful design, its light weight, and the ease of purchase make this one my favorite so far. Even after adding a rack and fenders, it’s still easy for me to carry and maneuver the bike. Though I’m more used to step throughs, after the first one or two rides I am now very comfortable mounting and dismounting it. The gears make the hills near my house surmountable, even for someone who’s not a seasoned cyclist. The only problem is now I’m obsessed with this company and I’m eying the blue or black Willow…

Thanks so much for sharing Sofiya. We are thrilled that you are enjoying your commuter bike. We've got a black Willow with your name on it. -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

1st time customer

My experience from ordering to delivery was seamless. The bike is a perfect fit. I am considering purchasing one for my husband because he is eyeing my Lorimer too closely.

Thanks so much for sharing Towanda and we're thrilled you're enjoying your new commuter bike. -Ryan Zagata

Amazing

I've been waiting for this bike since the summer and finally got it and picked it up before Christmas. At first I had to get used to how absolutely LIGHT it is, particularly considering I've only been riding the heavy New York Citibikes. I rode for 2 hours on it the first day and loved every single second of it -- I felt so hip! I CANNOT WAIT to ride it all over the city! I am 5'4 1/2 and got the medium.

Thanks so much for sharing Carol. We're thrilled you're enjoying your bike. -Ryan Zagata

Awesome for newbies and short folks

I have wanted to buy this bike since last summer, and boy, it was well worth the wait. As a 4'11" woman, it's hard to find a bike for my height in a mature style that isn't outrageously priced. It's lightweight and easy to store which is important since I live in an apartment. Look, I haven't regularly ridden a bike in years, but this bike made it so easy and intuitive. Another reviewer said it best when they said "everytime I get on I smile".

Thank you for sharing Sangeetha. This is a common theme with our Roebling and Lorimer, that it is well suited for riders on the shorter side. We're thrilled it worked out for you. -Ryan Zagata

Wicked cool bike

I love this bike with all my heart. Every time I get on I smile. It rides so smooth, the gears are simple and clean and the colour is amazing. If this bike came out in a pastel mini egg yellow or lilac purple I would hands down buy another one.
I originally wanted the white, and was going to order a small or xs bike frame because I am 5’2. But I’m really glad I went in to the Brooklyn bike co dealer in my city (Joe Mammas Cycles in Ottawa) to look and try it out. The white was even more off white than I thought which wasn’t for me personally, and the mint green was just so much more beautiful in person. It turned out I was actually a M frame, and I am so grateful for the staff at Joe mammas cycles were there to help me out and get me on the road. This review might be two years to late but on the other hand I love it just as much as I did two years ago! It would be awesome to see more fun matte colours come out on some of your bikes, I get compliments on the daily on this beauty!

Thanks so much for sharing Julia. Nothing delights us more than hearing a customer is loving their bike after a few years and that it continues to deliver on its promise. -Ryan Zagata
