Stylish City Bike

I am in LOVE with my Franklin Single Speed. It's a comfortable cruiser bike with a very sleek design. I actually like storing my bike in my apartment because it's so beautiful to look at! Brooklyn Bicycle Co is a great company with top notch customer service. Totally worth the money.

Thanks Jillian. We are super thrilled to hear you're enjoying your city bike. -Ryan Zagata

Best Bike - and Company - Ever

I'm beyond stoked about this bike. I use it to commute back and forth to work every day. It looks great and rides like a dream. The ivory color is a really beautiful creamy tone - very classic. The leather trim really makes it stand out, too. It's also a lightweight build, which makes carrying it up and down stairs in a city a whole lot less painful. And, it was really nice being able to pick it up fully-assembled; a lot of companies charge extra for that service.

On top of all of that, Brooklyn Bike Co. has the best customer service I've ever experienced. I put them through the wringer after changing my mind a few times on a couple of orders (there are just so many great options - how's a girl to choose?), and they handled it like champs every single time. No mistakes, and Ryan and his staff are always so pleasant. It's a little unnerving. (Just kidding.)

You can't go wrong with this bike or this company.

You're too kind Lesley. We're thrilled you've had a great experience with our team and were able to finally settle on the right colorways. Now for a 2nd bike.... Thanks again. -Ryan Zagata

Exceeded my expetations

I was unable to find this style of bike anywhere in my area so I decided to search online. The idea of building the bike myself made me extremely nervous, so I was incredibly happy that the company arranges to have it built locally. It was so easy to walk in and pick it up complete.

My only issue was when I tried to install a back bike rack. I had a horrible time getting it to fit (it is the correct size) and still am not able to get the back together properly. If you are thinking of getting one, I would HIGHLY recommend having the shop the builds your bike put it on. Save yourself the headache.

That aside, the bike itself is wonderful quality and rides like a dream. I am quite happy and would recommend this bike to anyone.

Thanks so much Chloe. We are thrilled you're enjoying your Franklin 7! -Ryan Zagata

Idyllic

I absolutely love my Franklin 3 speed. Just enough gears to let me easily zip around the city without any stress. Beautiful color and absolutely lovely. I do wish the rack was available for it but I'll just get one from my local bike shop. Love that this bike has opened up new areas of the city to me!

Julie - thanks so much for taking the time to share your thoughts. We're thrilled that you're enjoying your new three speed city bike. -Ryan Zagata

This Bike is Amazing!!!

I LOVE my new bike! It is so light and looks great! I get so many compliments and questions about where I got it. I thought I would regret getting black but the quality design makes it look very cool.
Also, having the bike put together at a shop near me and only having to pick it up and ride felt like VIP service. I would highly recommend this purchase!

Thanks so much for sharing Jenee. We're delighted that you're enjoying your Franklin townie bike. -Ryan Zagata
