It's that simple!
I've been riding my bike about 10 miles a day for the past month. It is an absolute dream. I used to have a fixie and after riding for 4 miles or so, my arms would start to go numb and I would have a lot of back pain. I went to the showroom and test rode the Willow and two sizes of the Franklin. To my surprise, I needed the larger frame (which was bigger than I imagined), but I'm so glad I did that, because now I can ride pain free. Rachel at the showroom was so friendly and generous with her time. I never felt rushed or pressured to make a decision. When I ordered my bike a few weeks later, Danielle and Rachel were kind enough to let me pick it up from the showroom on the same day rather than wait a week. This bike has been absolutely life changing and I get compliments all the time because I love wearing outfits to match my red Franklin 3. Thank you for making such a wonderful bike! It's truly been life changing
I bought this bike after my old one bit the dust. I originally wanted the ivory and submitted an order for it before they reached out to tell me that this color was actually sold out in the size I wanted. I ended up going with the coral. I am SO glad I did. The color is gorgeous and super unique. If I forget where I parked my bike I can see it blocks away because no one else has a bike this color. Rides super smooth. I had an issue with one of the pedals just a few weeks after getting it. Customer service reached out to the bike shop that built my bike for me and they fixed it for free. Great customer service. I am very happy with my buy.
Great bike, loved the free shipping & assembly
I really LOVE this bike and how easy it is to maintain it. The color is gorgeous. Is the perfect bike, it's lightweight and easy to ride. I totally recommend this bike.
My journey starting with submitting questions about the Franklin to the form in BBC website. I’m pretty sure the company founder was answering them. Then I went to the showroom and get excellent treatment. They let me drive a few models and talked me through the proces. I’m super happy with the Franklin 3.
