    Stylishly Urban Chic

    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.

    Thanks for sharing Kathi. We LOVE Thousand helmets as well. -Ryan Zagata

    Stylish and Comfortable

    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.

    Thanks Andrew. We are thrilled to be protecting your 'medically large head.' -Ryan Zagata

    Excellent!

    Great and stylish helmet! I like that it's not a racing helmet as I use my bicycle simply for commuting purposes.

    Thanks for sharing Montgomery. We love Thousand Helmets 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)!

    Still have questions on sizing (or anything else)? Email us or schedule a concierge call with our team. We’d love to help!

     

    Don’t forget: All of our bikes include Free Shipping & Professional Assembly.
