This bike is solid. They spent money on the right components of this bike, other components didn't need to be expensive to still work. Rides smooth and looks great. Missing a black part under the saddle but will contact about that. Other than that, it's a nice bike, well built, looks great and rides smooth. I was concerned about the angle of the handle but it was actually fine.
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with the bike and how it rides. Appreciate you sharing photo of your sea glass Franklin as well. -Ryan Zagata
I'm the guy who saw Jase and his new Bedford! Loved it so much I went home and ordered one. And don't worry Jase I got the black not the green! So there'll be two Bedfords cruising around Burleigh Heads now!
Thanks a bunch! It's awesome to hear that you loved it so much! The black is super sleek! Two Bedford's cruising around Burleigh Heads will definitely turn some heads! Enjoy the ride, and here's to making the streets a bit more stylish!
Picked up The Bedford 8 a week ago, and got to say - it's the bees knees!
This beautifully designed bicycle is comfortable to cruise on and also has great speed when kicking up the cadence.
It is also getting a lot of attention around town - one guy said to me yesterday - "OMG - this is gorgeous" and he ain't wrong.
Hi Jase, Thanks for the being apart of the Brooklyn Bicycle Co family. Enjoy the ride!
wonderful compromise between the comfort of a cruiser & responsiveness of drop bars at a yummy price
Thank you for sharing Drew. We love your enthusiasm for these handlebars. - Ryan Zagata
Ordering the bike was fast and easy. This is a quality bike. Very well built and shifts very smooth.
Thank you for your feedback! We're glad to hear that you are happy with your purchase and that the bike is quality built. -Ryan Zagata
After not having a bike since high school I got the sea glass color Franklin 8 in late 2022. I enjoyed it so much that I got the dark blue Franklin 8 in 2023. I use the basket to pack food and beverages for longer rides, while I use the newer bike for shorter trips usually, and evening rides mostly. Go on paved bicycle trails only and have ridden well over 1,500 miles this summer and fall. Both bikes ride smoothly and get compliments on their retro looks. Love the fenders!
Thank you so much for your feedback Ed. Nothing validates what we're doing more than a repeat customer. We appreciate your repeat business and we appreciate you taking the time to share your experience. -Ryan Zagata
