Love my Franklin 3!!!

I recently received my Franklin 3 and fell in love immediately. I bought the sea glass color which is an absolutely beautiful teal. I feel so stylish riding around the city! The bike rides great and the gear mechanism is super easy to use. I was also very impressed by how easy the process was! Highly recommend the Franklin!!!

Thanks so much for sharing Kaylee. We are so thrilled that you are loving your Franklin 3 and we appreciate you acknowledging what an easy experience it was. -Ryan Zagata

What’s not to love?!

Haven’t loved a bike this much since I was 8 years old! They are beautiful and perfect for a scenic ride or ride to tennis. I bought two for the condo and everyone loves them!

Thanks so much for sharing. Glad they're a hit with the condo. -Ryan Zagata

Love my new Franklin!

The Franklin single speed is perfect for the terrain here in North Florida. I am also extremely pleased with Brooklyn Bicycle Co. and the ease with which I ordered the bike and received it. The ride is smooth and very comfortable. It’s great for rides in town and on the Rails to Trails.

Thanks for sharing Karen. We're thrilled you're loving your Franklin bikes down in Florida. -Ryan Zagata

great for a college campus

I bought the single speed to get to my classes and back to my dorm at my university and it has been great so far. I have received tons of compliments in the few weeks I've had it. Buying the bike was so simple and Ryan was so helpful over email. I had a small issue picking it up (my local bike store's mistake) and when I called Brooklyn Bicycle Co for help they answered immediately and helped me resolve the issue in minutes. I definitely recommend this company and the Franklin Single Speed.

We are so glad you're getting so much use out of your Franklin Single Speed city bike Malari. Thanks for sharing your feedback. -Ryan Zagata
