Very Practical

I recently moved to a bike friendly area and figured I can run errands and go shopping on a bike. I researched a lot and went with the Franklin 3. It's sturdy and the upright positioning helps me see where I'm going. I love taking it shopping and to the community garden. I got a bike trailer to carry things and that worked well. Definitely got my money's worth. Highly recommend.

Thanks so much for sharing Abraham. We are glad the Franklin 3 is delivering on its promise. -Ryan Zagata

So classic!

I love the classic lines and style of the Franklin. I get compliments on it all the time. I especially appreciate the internal gears. Low maintenance! Even the owner of the bike shop where I picked it up was impressed! That says a lot! Thanks for a great bike that's a pleasure to ride and to look at.

Thank you for sharing Bonnie. We're thrilled you're enjoying your bike. -Ryan Zagata

City Bike Helmet by Thousand
Frances (Belmont, US)
Scooter Perfect

I bought this for my scooter-loving boyfriend. The look and function is PERFECT for scooter use. The snap allows quick-on-off for the urban transit connections and zipping to meetings in the city. The brim is just enough to prevent glare while still keeping the helmet compact for errands and trips to the grocery store. And did I mention that he LOVES the look of it? He said it distinguishes him from the bike crowd in a very smart way.....Still kicking it at 60!

Thanks so much for sharing Frances. We're glad you're finding many uses for the helmet. -Ryan Zagata

Ride in style

In a sea of boring bikes, I found Brooklyn bike, and I couldn’t be more happier with my Bedford. The city ride is so smooth, and can’t help but notice the heads turning when I ride by :)

Thanks so much for sharing Raphael. We're thrilled you're enjoying your Bedford. -Ryan Zagata

Swept Back Handlebars
Blake Hebold (Falmouth, US)
Great Handlebars!

As a young bike mechanic I don’t have preferred bike component retailers. But these are perfect bars for cruiser vibe bikes. Everything (grips, brake levers etc) fit according to measurements. Great product, highly recommend it!

Thanks so much for the kind words and acknowledgment Blake. -Ryan Zagata
