Our Downtown Bike Lights easily mount to any bar or post and their super bright LED lights make you difficult to miss. Our Safety On prevents lights from accidentally turning on in your bag or pocket. The Downtown Bike Lights have a durable alloy shell and long runtime. Battery is included.
Please note that these lights have a battery protector that must be removed prior to initial use.
Our bikes are built to last and we stand by that. That's why we offer a Lifetime warranty on all frames as well as a 30 day satisfaction gaurantee on all purchases. If you have any issues with your order, we'll solve it.
We value our customer's privacy. That means we sell bikes, and that's it. Every transaction is secure and encrypted, to ensure your information is safe.
Every bike purchase is shipped to your local bike shop for assembly, free of charge. You only have to pick it up when it's ready. We take care of everything, so you don't have to.
I got these lights because I like how subtle they are. They are easy to attach, and they work great. They aren't super bright, but I use them on the flashing setting and they make it easy for everyone to see me! I've had them now for a couple of months with no issues.
This is the second pair I bought (one pair for my son’s Trek, and the other pair for my new Lorimer). Easy to install, easy to turn on, and until daylight savings comes in the morning, they provide just enough visibility
Easy to attach and remove, but the light but might fall off of the strap, especially if you carry them in a bag with other objects, while not biking. That being said, still very good lights!
Good price, solid construction, small and lightweight, so there’s no excuse not to keep a set in your EDC kit
These lights are well made and easy to use. I did not have any problems attacking them to my Brooklyn Bike Company Bike. Very basic design but does the job and very inexpensive.
These lights seemed great at first: easy to attach to my bike, bright, all the right settings, easy to use even when you've already started riding and realized you forgot to turn it on. However, within two weeks of using these lights, both lights have fallen off and been lost in the street! I carry my bike up a half set of stairs and inside every night, one night my hand knocked the white light off the band--the band was securely attached to the bike, the light just popped out of the silicone (or whatever material that is) band. I was able to find it and re-insert it easily; a few days later it happened again and was lost in the gully-washer. The same happened with the red light, I still have the band but the light itself fell out while I was riding. Super disappointed in these lights since my bike from Brooklyn Bike Co. is great!
|COLOR-MATCHED FENDERS & CHAINGUARD||SADDLE|
|3-SPEED INTERNAL GEARING||GRIPS|
|KICKSTAND INCLUDED||TIRE COLOR|
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.
