Designed for urban city riding, the minimalist Heritage bike helmets are Thousand's original collection, inspired by the simplicity of vintage moto lids and the heritage colorways of the 50s and 60s.
Our bikes are built to last and we stand by that. That's why we offer a Lifetime warranty on all frames as well as a 30 day satisfaction gaurantee on all purchases. If you have any issues with your order, we'll solve it.

Ok it is very cute. But it is also easy to get on and off, fast. Which I appreciate, and it feels more solid than my other brands. Biking in Brooklyn you need a solid helmet.
For years I could not find a helmet that looked normal or respectable on me. This one far exceeds my expectations. It's not just normal-looking but actually good-looking, both on its own and when worn! Amazing. Great to be able to ride safely at long last.
Very comfortable and looks great!
I love this helmet it is very adjustable and fits nicely.
I was hesitant about purchasing a bike helmet, but being almost 60 I figured safety comes first. Since rekindling my love affair with my new Brooklyn Bike I can honestly say my helmet is a nice addition.
I have the burden of having a medically large head (doctors have asked which side of the family can't wear hats) so I am always apprehensive before getting a hat or in this case helmet online. This helmet not only fits but looks great. The logo pop-out is super functional when you're trying to lock up your bike and not have to carry too much with you. I would definitely recommend this helmet.
|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.
