Sturdy, rustproof, and polished to perfection, our alloy rear carrier gets the job done beautifully. We suggest you pair it with our rugged rear crate and let your bike do all the work: carry your books, your groceries, your briefcase--whatever you need, wherever you're going.
*If you are purchasing this carrier for a brand of bicycle other than Brooklyn Bicycle Co., and your bicycle does not have braze-ons on the seat stays, you will need to order rack clamps separately. Our carriers are designed specifically for our bicycles.
Our bikes are built to last and we stand by that. That's why we offer a Lifetime warranty on all frames as well as a 30 day satisfaction gaurantee on all purchases. If you have any issues with your order, we'll solve it.
We value our customer's privacy. That means we sell bikes, and that's it. Every transaction is secure and encrypted, to ensure your information is safe.
Every bike purchase is shipped to your local bike shop for assembly, free of charge. You only have to pick it up when it's ready. We take care of everything, so you don't have to.
Very nice a sturdy rear rack. I am able to clamp my dogs bike attachment to it with no worries. The customer service both through Brooklyn Bikes and Edible Pedal (the shop in Sacramento where my bike was built) was absolutely phenomenal. I had original ordered my accessories in black, thinking nothing of it, and I was contacted
it does it
Strong lite and good price, what I wanted.
I bought this when I bought my bike and it was so great having it already installed when I picked up my bike. It has been great so far, great quality but not heavy.
Love this carrier, it's light weight, and very durable. 5 stars.
I ordered the rear carrier with the bike and had it installed prior to picking up my bike. It fits perfectly and is great for my pannier bag.
|COLOR-MATCHED FENDERS & CHAINGUARD||SADDLE|
|3-SPEED INTERNAL GEARING||GRIPS|
|KICKSTAND INCLUDED||TIRE COLOR|
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.
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.
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.
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)!
Don’t forget: All of our bikes include Free Shipping & Professional Assembly.
