It's that simple!
The Franklin 3 is the best bike I've ridden on! It's extremely comfortable for my 16 mile roundtrip from Queens to downtown Manhattan five days a week and it's a super smooth ride!
The overall bike purchase was also a great experience. By far one of the best companies I've had the pleasure of buying from, Ryan is super knowledgeable and great to talk to! All of my concerns were met and I ended up learning things about bikes that I didn't know before. I highly recommend this bike if you're looking for comfort, ease, and it's easy on the eyes too!
I was unsure about buying this bike because I prefer used/vintage rather than y'know using new resources + not locally made...but I'm glad the company was at least transparent with their factory and their standards. The bike itself is super comfortable and very cute! Perfect size too, no problems with it :-)
I've never loved a bike so much. I sold my car and went all in as a bike commuter (I already was, but now it's really my only option) and this bike has made it a breeze. It gets good speed with little effort, it's super comfortable, and beautiful. I get compliments on it all the time. I also got a front bask and rear rack. The front basket is huge! I can fit my work supplies (laptop, files, etc.) and lunch in it without a problem and the rear rack allows for a pannier on days that I am going to the gym. Even when I get stuck riding in the rain I still have a smile on my face because riding this bike is a dream compared to my last. Additionally, the customer service was top notch. It was easy to order and came days before it was expected. Brooklyn Bike even called me to confirm the color of accessories I wanted (I ordered black thinking nothing of it) because silver matched my bike better. Very happy I received that call because I agree that silver really makes the bike stand out.
I recently received my Franklin 3 and fell in love immediately. I bought the sea glass color which is an absolutely beautiful teal. I feel so stylish riding around the city! The bike rides great and the gear mechanism is super easy to use. I was also very impressed by how easy the process was! Highly recommend the Franklin!!!
Haven’t loved a bike this much since I was 8 years old! They are beautiful and perfect for a scenic ride or ride to tennis. I bought two for the condo and everyone loves them!
