Made from reclaimed timber, galvanized metal, and brass, our branded rear cargo bike crate makes a handsomely sturdy statement. With hardware provided for easy installment, your roomy crate will soon be doing what it does best carrying your loot, so you don't have to. Be it books or bubbly, a picnic or a parcel, our crate, with its burnt Brooklyn logo, will cart it all in style.
*Engineered to fit most rear carriers 6" wide or narrower. Brackets & mounting hardware included.
Dimensions: 3/8" Ply, 15" x 10" x 8"
NOTE: While this rear crate is sealed, it is made of wood and needs to be regularly resealed and not left to the elements for extended periods of time or it will prematurely wear.
*If you are purchasing a crate along with a BROOKLYN BICYCLE CO. FRANKLIN, BEDFORD, CALYER, or WYTHE model, you will also need to purchase a rear carrier.

Beautifully crafted. Very nice finish. Durable.
I love my wooden crate so much, words cannot describe. It’s very useful for throwing in bags for errands or a sweatshirt but more importantly, it completes the look of my bike! It’s easy to assemble and very useful.
Perfect combination of form, fit & function.
This basket is a great addition to any bike. It is beautifully hand-made and the price is very reasonable for it having been hand-made. I definitely recommend it!
I absolutely love this crate! It’s so old school and fun. Very well made. Classic. Having walked the Brooklyn Bridge with my son and daughter on a special vacation, the emblem is a perfect commemoration of our time together in NYC. I use it as decor in my home when it’s not on my bike...My son passed away suddenly from an unknown heart condition shortly after our trip. Healthy and 25. The bicycle and crate, with their Brooklyn Bridge emblems ... have filled my heart with joy and captured memories. ❤️ They remind me to enjoy every moment...like he did.
|COLOR-MATCHED FENDERS & CHAINGUARD||SADDLE|
|3-SPEED INTERNAL GEARING||GRIPS|
|KICKSTAND INCLUDED||TIRE COLOR|
This is probably the most notable difference between our step-through models. With the Willow featuring our Swept-Back Handlebars. This means a much more upright (European-style) riding position (think sitting in a chair) that is well suited for leisurely riding.
The Franklin models feature our Relaxed Ride Handlebars, which are slightly more aggressive and ideal for both commuting and leisurely weekend rides.
The Willow comes with cream tires, whereas the Franklin sports black tires. Do note that regardless of color, all our tires offer an added layer of puncture resistance.
The Willow is our premium model and includes a rear carrier, as well as an upgraded sprung saddle and grip set from Selle Royal’s Royalgel™ line.
The Franklin features Selle Royal Vegan Leather saddle and grips. Please note that this bike does not come with a rear carrier. If you would like to purchase a rear carrier for this model, you will need a 26” carrier for the S/M Franklin and a 700C carrier for the Large Franklin model.
Both models come with color matched fenders and chainguard, as well as a kickstand.
4. RUST-PROHIBITIVE COATING & GEARING
As our signature model, the Willow has a few additional premium features including a rust-prohibitive coating on the chain and internal gearing resulting in less maintenance and more riding.
5. FRAME MATERIALS
On a more technical note – the geometry on both frames is identical, however the Franklin and Willow models are made from different materials. Are you currently thinking “WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?! I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT BIKES!!”? Do not fret – we totally get it! Take a breath and read on…
The Willow frame is made with double-butted 4130 Chromoly Steel. We use a stronger grade of steel, which allows us to use thinner tubing resulting in a lighter frame.
The Franklin frame is crafted with specially engineered high-tensile steel. What does this mean? We are able to offer a similar bike of a more moderate price point. Our Franklin model is the most economical step-through model in our portfolio of bikes (as well as a team favorite)!
Don’t forget: All of our bikes include Free Shipping & Professional Assembly.
