form and function!

I am constantly saying that something is all form and no function because, well, it's true; often something that is beautiful is not very functional and vice versa. This minimal bell is beautiful and simple and has a nice, but effective ring. It's not an obnoxious sound but more of an "excuse me, I'm behind you" kind of bell. It was also easy to attach to my handle bars and blends seamlessly with the design of my Brooklyn Bike.

Thanks so much for sharing Pamela. We are thrilled you're enjoying the Oi Bell. You captured our sentiments perfectly in your review. -Ryan Zagata

Stylish and effective

Great little bell! Can hardly notice it on the handlebars and the sound carries perfectly.

Thanks so much for sharing Amanda. We love the Oi bells for the exact reason you describe. They're functional yet discrete. -Ryan Zagata

Best bell...

Can a bicycle bell be considered sophisticated? I believe so! Barely know it's there as it blends in with my black handle bars. The ding is just loud enough to be heard and quiet enough to be zen!

Thanks so much for sharing Liz. The Oi bells are an office favorite and great match for our bikes. -Ryan Zagata

So discreet

Gorgeous. The silver blends in with my handlebars and you can't even tell I have a bell on my bike. And the 'ding' has a nice sound quality. Doesn't irritate any of the pedestrians I warn.

Thanks for sharing Jay. We love these bells as well! -Ryan Zagata

What Are the Differences Between the Franklin and Willow Step-through Models?

Looking at the Franklin and Willow, but not quite sure how the models compare? No worries – we get this question a lot, so we’ve put together a quick rundown on what sets these models apart!

 

#TLDR (AKA Too Long Didn't Read)? Here's a Quick Summary:

 SIMILARITIES DIFFERENCES
FRAME GEOMETRY HANDLEBARS
COLOR-MATCHED FENDERS & CHAINGUARD SADDLE
3-SPEED INTERNAL GEARING GRIPS
KICKSTAND INCLUDED TIRE COLOR
REAR CARRIER
CHAIN COATING
7-SPEED GEARING
FRAME MATERIALS

 

 

1. HANDLEBARS

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.

 

2. TIRES

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.

 

3. ACCESSORIES

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.

The Franklin 3 model includes internal gearing (just like the Willow), whereas the Franklin 7 has an external 7-Speed derailleur.

 

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.
