The MOST IMPORTANT measurement when sizing a bike is your inseam length.
Don't base your inseam simply on your jean size.
The more precise, the better.
1. Stand with your back against a wall and spread your feet 6-8" apart.
2. Place a book between your legs and up against the wall, spine up; raise it until snug against your crotch (this mimics your bike seat).
3. Have another person measure from the top of the book (spine) down to the floor.

The Best Overall Commuter Bike
"The step-through frame makes mounting your bike effortless regardless of what you're wearing."
Best Bike for Beginning Commuters
"Most commutes involve hills or bridges, so a multiple-gear style is better for regular commuting."
Easy to Buy, Exceptional Service
"By all accounts, buying a Brooklyn online is a pleasant experience."
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
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!

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!
