After getting hit on my rusty old Nishiki road bike I was looking for a new bike that was reliable, affordable, rode well over bumpy city roads, and looked cool (but wasn't flashy enough to get stolen). The Roebling is all that and more. I've been commuting to work on mine for the past week and I am thrilled. The shifting is smooth and helps me power up steep hills, the ride is comfortable, and I can trust the bike to get me to the store down the street or to the waterfront miles away. A major bonus is that it's lightweight and easy to pick up. Many thanks for this solid build and design!
My bike shop pointed me toward the Roebling when I asked for something a little lighter and faster than my Jamis commuter. That was two months ago, and it's been a delight so far! I mainly use the bike for commuting the five miles (mostly bike path, no hills) each way to work. It's also perfect for quick errands or a nice weekend ride on a local bike path.
The Roebling is super light, comfortable and attractive. I'm a big fan of the matte black. The only small issue I had was keeping the saddle up. During the first couple rides, the seat post would gradually sink until it was challenging to ride. Eventually, I summoned enough strength to tighten the clamp and resolve this. It hasn't been a problem since and I've loved this bike! Thanks, Brooklyn!
I was searching for both a commuter (to get around DC) and recreational bike that wouldn't break that bank. I first saw the Roebling at my local bike shop and knew right away it was the one. It was light, sturdy, comfortable, loved the matte black look, and more importantly the price point was in my budget. I did some additional research, read reviews and reached out to Brooklyn Bicycle with my questions/concerns (which they responded to quickly). Ultimately, I purchased the Roebling and thus far has been great! I love the attention to detail and the pride Brooklyn Bicycle takes in making such quality and affordable bicycles.
I was on the hunt for a sleek bike that was light-weight, minimal, and could get me around a city. This bike delivers and more.
After discovering the Roebling and going over several reviews, I was sold. Brooklyn Bicycle kept me up to date on my order, tracking, and delivery. It was nice that they found a local bike shop to put together my bike, easing me of that burden and not having it delivered to my apartment when I wasn't around.
I'm always hesitant when making high-price purchases online without testing the product, but was extremely pleased with the bike. The fit guide was right on point (I'm 6ft and purchased the Large size). The transition of gears is the best I've seen on a bike so far with no issues of the chain falling off. After several uses, the seat became quite comfortable. What I like most about the bike is its sleekness and light weight.
Overall GREAT product and will recommend to my friends and family.
I bought a Roebling for myself and a Lorimer for my wife and we're absolutely in love. These bikes are exactly what we need to zip around Kansas City, MO. From the frame construction and high-quality parts to the expert assembly and no-hassle pick up, these bikes are completely perfect and a fun way to bring Brooklyn to KC. I've already put 250+ miles on my bike in just over a month and haven't had a single issue at all. Thanks for such a great experience!
