Great experience--great fit--great value!

My Brooklyn Roebling checks ALL of the boxes (rack compatibility, STEEL, and most importantly a frame in a 15"!) for an upright (and underrated) commuter/wherever bike. Having this bike for two years, it fits like a glove and is as utilitarian, or minimal, as I want it to be.

Another comment on fit: thinking I was a 14" (in the Lorimer)--Ryan gave me a call and suggested I bump up in size to the 15" (Roebling). He was spot on--and even did me the courtesy of finding a bike shop that "he felt good about" to do the professional assembly.

I love my Roebling so much that I've sticker-bombed it for personal flare. It's not leaving my stable!

Thanks so much Joseph. We appreciate you coming back to share your experiences two years later. We try to build our bikes with longevity at the forefront and it seems our product management team is delivering on that promise. Thanks again. -Ryan Zagata

Roebling/Franklin 3 Speed

After a long search my wife and I decided on Brooklyn Bikes, and we couldn't be happier. The bikes look great and ride even better.

I ride the Roebling from the UWS to LES/Soho on a regular basis, and it's a fun ride. I don't dread the inclines of Riverside Park or the Central Park loop anymore as I did on my single speed. The Roebling is fast, sturdy, and stable. It really is the perfect NYC bike.

My wife rides the Franklin 3 spd and she is also enamored with the look and ride of the bike. I rode it back from their Greenpoint show room to the UWS, and can attest to how well it rides. In particular, the stability of the ride.

The crew at BK Bicycle is even better than their bikes. Their patience, responsiveness, cooperation, and courteousness is beyond compare.

I highly recommend taking a looking at them if you're in the market for a bike, not to mention you'll be supporting a homegrown NYC business.

Thank you so much for sharing Arzhang. We appreciate you acknowledging both the quality of our products and the effort our team put forth in getting you on your bike. We appreciate your business. -Ryan Zagata

Whizzing through Long Beach

I ordered this bike towards the end of 2020 and was able to start the new year on a high note when I was notified that my bike was ready for pickup. So far the Roebling has been awesome!. I love the sleek matte finish and the overall look of the bike. It has 8 different gears and is a very smooth and comfortable ride, making it perfect for riding around town in Long Beach, CA. Personally I was looking for a solid hybrid/fitness bike and the Roebling checks all of the boxes. I also love the fact that I am able to support smaller businesses, especially in times like these. I can't say enough about the team at BBC. Everyone I emailed or talked to was super friendly, professional, and always willing to go the extra mile to answer any question I had. I also love the fact that they work with local bike shops all across the country. It made the process of picking up my bike quick and easy. All I had to do was show up to my local bike shop, show my receipt and ID, and I was able to ride off on my new set of 2-wheels shortly after. One last thing to note is their great warranty policy. I just found out about this today when I received an email from BBC, and it shows they really care about their customers and their satisfaction. I would recommend these bikes to anyone looking for an affordable, quality ride. I can't wait to put many more miles on my Roebling. Cheers and happy riding!

Thanks so much for sharing such thorough feedback Andrew. It is always a thrill to see our customers enjoying our bikes. -Ryan Zagata

Could not be happier

Could not be happier
I ordered the Roebling in late summer knowing I would not receive it until December, but living in Florida, I was willing to wait. Love this bike, very impressed with the quality and the buying experience -- delivered to a bike shop I could walk, where it was assembled perfectly so I could just ride it home!

Thanks for much for sharing your experience with both the bike and our Buy & Ride program. We're glad it was easy. -Ryan Zagata

Love this bike and great Customer service!

Its light, responsive and it looks great :)
Most importantly, I had an issue with the delivery of a lock and customer service was super speedy, accommodating and generous in order to help me out.

Thank you for your business and for sharing your feedback on the bike. We also appreciate you giving us an opportunity to help you sort out the delivery issue you had. -Ryan Zagata

Great affordable bike.

Bought this for my 6’ 16 yr olds son. He rides it all over the city. Loves the bike. Thank you

Thanks so much for sharing Thomas. We're glad your son is putting some good miles in on his new bike. -Ryan Zagata

City Bike Helmet by Thousand
Frances (Belmont, US)
Scooter Perfect

I bought this for my scooter-loving boyfriend. The look and function is PERFECT for scooter use. The snap allows quick-on-off for the urban transit connections and zipping to meetings in the city. The brim is just enough to prevent glare while still keeping the helmet compact for errands and trips to the grocery store. And did I mention that he LOVES the look of it? He said it distinguishes him from the bike crowd in a very smart way.....Still kicking it at 60!

Thanks so much for sharing Frances. We're glad you're finding many uses for the helmet. -Ryan Zagata

Love it!

The perfect size and just what I was looking for. The shape of this basket stores my things securely and has a lot of room inside.

Thanks for sharing Lindsay. We're big fans of Nantucket Baskets as well. -Ryan Zagata

Bedford 8 Speed
Raphael Roos (Spicer, US)
Ride in style

In a sea of boring bikes, I found Brooklyn bike, and I couldn’t be more happier with my Bedford. The city ride is so smooth, and can’t help but notice the heads turning when I ride by :)

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

Swept Back Handlebars
Blake Hebold (Falmouth, US)
Great Handlebars!

As a young bike mechanic I don’t have preferred bike component retailers. But these are perfect bars for cruiser vibe bikes. Everything (grips, brake levers etc) fit according to measurements. Great product, highly recommend it!

Thanks so much for the kind words and acknowledgment Blake. -Ryan Zagata
