Very Practical

I recently moved to a bike friendly area and figured I can run errands and go shopping on a bike. I researched a lot and went with the Franklin 3. It's sturdy and the upright positioning helps me see where I'm going. I love taking it shopping and to the community garden. I got a bike trailer to carry things and that worked well. Definitely got my money's worth. Highly recommend.

Thanks so much for sharing Abraham. We are glad the Franklin 3 is delivering on its promise. -Ryan Zagata

Enjoying my Franklin!

Just had my first ride on my Franklin 3 speed. Loved it! Easy gear change and a smooth ride. Also purchased the rear carrier. Looking forward to some great rides as the weather continues to get better in the Midwest!

Thank you for taking the time to share Karen. We are thrilled you're enjoying your bike out there in the Midwest. -Ryan Zagata

Best bike I’ve ever owned!

The entire order process was seamless! The customer service team is amazing and so helpful! I have nothing but love for these guys and gals! I preordered the Franklin 3 and I am so happy I’m finally out and about riding! The bike is amazing and the features are awesome. I’ve never had such an amazing bike! It rides smoothly and the gears are great! Not only that but my bike is beyond beautiful. Thank you Brooklyn Bicycle for being so kind and for making a product that I absolutely love.

So classic!

I love the classic lines and style of the Franklin. I get compliments on it all the time. I especially appreciate the internal gears. Low maintenance! Even the owner of the bike shop where I picked it up was impressed! That says a lot! Thanks for a great bike that's a pleasure to ride and to look at.

Thank you for sharing Bonnie. We're thrilled you're enjoying your bike. -Ryan Zagata

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

Roebling
Joseph Abad (West Hartford, US)
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

Perfect Bicycle

As soon as I saw its sleek, vintage look, I knew this was the perfect bike for me. Ordering could not have been easier. And having it shipped to and assembled by a local bike shop made it a breeze. Six weeks later, I love everything about this bike and could not be happier with my choice. I can't say enough about it!

Thanks so much for sharing. The Driggs is a real head turner so we're glad you're able to enjoy it and appreciate the feedback. -Ryan Zagata

Rear Carrier
Johny B (Warren, US)
Look At That Rack!

I had won a New Belgium cruiser a few weeks ago. It was shipped to me and while in transit, the rack was bent. I located the rack on the website to fit the bike. It shipped quickly and was very easy to install. My overall experience was great! I was informed about this purchase from the moment I ordered it and it was easy to track until it was delivered.

Thanks so much for sharing Johny. So glad you're digging your rack. -Ryan Zagata

Driggs 7

What a great experience so far, the pictures online don’t do the bike justice. It is a great looking bike very comfortable and easy to ride. I had quite a few issues related to the shop that put the bike together resulting in some failures that the team at Brooklyn bicycles was quick to rectify. I have enjoyed my experience working with the team at BB. I also have enjoyed my bike thus far.

Thanks so much for sharing your feedback and this amazing photo William. As you likely gathered, one of our biggest challenges is ensuring the customer experience is universally flawless across our 450+ network of partner shops and it is an also an area where we will never stop pursuing perfection. Enjoy your ride. -Ryan Zagata
