Handcrafted Wooden Bike Crate

 

 

Made from reclaimed timber, galvanized metal, and brass, our branded rear cargo bike crate makes a handsomely sturdy statement. With hardware provided for easy installment, your roomy crate will soon be doing what it does best carrying your loot, so you don't have to. Be it books or bubbly, a picnic or a parcel, our crate, with its burnt Brooklyn logo, will cart it all in style.

*Engineered to fit most rear carriers 6" wide or narrower. Brackets & mounting hardware included.

Dimensions: 3/8" Ply, 15" x 10" x 8"

 

NOTE: While this rear crate is sealed, it is made of wood and needs to be regularly resealed and not left to the elements for extended periods of time or it will prematurely wear.

*If you are purchasing a crate along with a BROOKLYN BICYCLE CO. FRANKLIN, BEDFORD, CALYER, or WYTHE model, you will also need to purchase a rear carrier.

Very stylish!

A great addition to a great bike.
We took it to Cape Cod and while riding, apparently the screw came loose from the wood bracket and before we noticed we lost one of the two brackets. A longer screw and a nylon lock nut should solve the problem if I can get a replacement bracket.

Thanks for sharing Tim. We're glad you're enjoying your rear crate. -Ryan Zagata

Proof you should buy this box

It’s simple, it makes your bike look cooler and function better. A real head turner when cruisin down the road with a sack of groceries or a sweet pup in your box. Make the right choice and purchase! You’ll thank yourself later for reading this review.

Thanks so much for sharing Kenny. Glad you're finding utility in the crate. -Ryan Zagata

Great storage.

I love the wooden bike crate. So much chicer than other carriers and holds plenty. I needed a little help from a friend to install it, but it went on quickly and have had no issues since. The only other thing to get used to is mounting/dismounting the bike. Thankful I have a step-through bike.

Thanks for sharing Amy. We are glad you are experiencing the utility of the carrier. -Ryan Zagata

This wooden bike crate is fantastically stylish and incredibly useful. I couldn't commute without it! Just practice your high-kicks to mount your bicycle (haha).

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.
