Classic in appearance, yet functional. The basket is a beautiful addition to the bicycle and provides adequate space for a nice picnic lunch.
The basket I purchased from Brooklyn Bicycle is, in a word, CUTE! Its great quality and looks good on the bike as well as being very functional. The people at Brooklyn Bicycle were easy and pleasant to work with. I would go to them any time I needed to buy a bike or any accessories in the future.
The basket is beautiful and thyme basket is beautiful and the delivery was quick.
I love this Nantucket Lightship Basket. It’s big enough to fit my library books, phone and wallet. It came super fast as well! But I didn’t get my free tote yet!
I got this as a mother’s day gift for my mom, and she just loves it. Thank you so much.
The basket was a gift and well received by the recipient.

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.
