Jasmine A. (Vancouver, CA)

Just picked up my first Brooklyn Bicycle, the Lorimer, here in Vancouver today and I already took it out on the trails in Stanley Park and through the streets downtown. I was super impressed with it! It’s incredibly light and super comfortable to ride! I’m nearly 5’4 and I got the 16/M - it fits perfect! I was also incredibly happy with the service at the shop I bought it from on Robson Street - they were super to work with. Looking forward to riding this bicycle all year round!

Thanks so much for sharing Jasmine. You're lucky to have access to Stanley Park - it's one of our favorites. Enjoy. -Ryan Zagata

1st time customer

My experience from ordering to delivery was seamless. The bike is a perfect fit. I am considering purchasing one for my husband because he is eyeing my Lorimer too closely.

Thanks so much for sharing Towanda and we're thrilled you're enjoying your new commuter bike. -Ryan Zagata

Carol (Brooklyn, US)

I've been waiting for this bike since the summer and finally got it and picked it up before Christmas. At first I had to get used to how absolutely LIGHT it is, particularly considering I've only been riding the heavy New York Citibikes. I rode for 2 hours on it the first day and loved every single second of it -- I felt so hip! I CANNOT WAIT to ride it all over the city! I am 5'4 1/2 and got the medium.

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

Sangeetha (Westford, US)
Awesome for newbies and short folks

I have wanted to buy this bike since last summer, and boy, it was well worth the wait. As a 4'11" woman, it's hard to find a bike for my height in a mature style that isn't outrageously priced. It's lightweight and easy to store which is important since I live in an apartment. Look, I haven't regularly ridden a bike in years, but this bike made it so easy and intuitive. Another reviewer said it best when they said "everytime I get on I smile".

Thank you for sharing Sangeetha. This is a common theme with our Roebling and Lorimer, that it is well suited for riders on the shorter side. We're thrilled it worked out for you. -Ryan Zagata

Julia (Ottawa, CA)
Wicked cool bike

I love this bike with all my heart. Every time I get on I smile. It rides so smooth, the gears are simple and clean and the colour is amazing. If this bike came out in a pastel mini egg yellow or lilac purple I would hands down buy another one.
I originally wanted the white, and was going to order a small or xs bike frame because I am 5’2. But I’m really glad I went in to the Brooklyn bike co dealer in my city (Joe Mammas Cycles in Ottawa) to look and try it out. The white was even more off white than I thought which wasn’t for me personally, and the mint green was just so much more beautiful in person. It turned out I was actually a M frame, and I am so grateful for the staff at Joe mammas cycles were there to help me out and get me on the road. This review might be two years to late but on the other hand I love it just as much as I did two years ago! It would be awesome to see more fun matte colours come out on some of your bikes, I get compliments on the daily on this beauty!

Thanks so much for sharing Julia. Nothing delights us more than hearing a customer is loving their bike after a few years and that it continues to deliver on its promise. -Ryan Zagata

Erika (Dallas, US)
Great Bike, Meh Assembly experience

Despite having a couple bikes arrive with damage, the customer service at BB was great. When I finally received the bike, I was extremely disappointed with the bike shop chosen to assemble the bike. They were zero percent interested in helping me and when I indicated that I was there to pick up the bike, the rolled it up and walked off. No help to the car or anything and given the shop had stairs and no automatic doors, I had a hard time getting to the car. Even when I asked about putting the rack on, they quoted an exorbitant price which was essentially asking me to leave. Needless to say, once I found the appropriate allen wrench, I had to adjust everything myself since the seat was way too high and the handle bars weren’t aligned. Accessories were a breeze to install once I looked up online which makes the bike shop quote truly insulting for a 5 min job (4 of which was finding the wrench).

I am 5’2” and full figured and this bike was a great match for me once I made the adjustments. I ride around my moderately hilly neighborhood and round trip to the tennis courts.

I recommend the bike but take pause on whether I would want to go through that experience again. I was hesitant to purchase a bike online and due to that shop, it was with good reason.

Thanks so much for this thorough review Erika. While we're thrilled you're loving your bike, it's apparent our partner fell down in the delivery of your bike and we apologize. While we are continually improving our partnerships, maintaining a consistent experience across all partners remains an ongoing process that we clearly can't rest on just yet. Thanks again. -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

Joseph Abad (West Hartford, US)
Great experience--great fit--great value!

My Brooklyn Roebling checks ALL of the boxes (rack compatibility, STEEL, and most importantly a frame in a 15"!) for an upright (and underrated) commuter/wherever bike. Having this bike for two years, it fits like a glove and is as utilitarian, or minimal, as I want it to be.

Another comment on fit: thinking I was a 14" (in the Lorimer)--Ryan gave me a call and suggested I bump up in size to the 15" (Roebling). He was spot on--and even did me the courtesy of finding a bike shop that "he felt good about" to do the professional assembly.

I love my Roebling so much that I've sticker-bombed it for personal flare. It's not leaving my stable!

Thanks so much Joseph. We appreciate you coming back to share your experiences two years later. We try to build our bikes with longevity at the forefront and it seems our product management team is delivering on that promise. Thanks again. -Ryan Zagata

Driggs 3 Speed
2bfrank (Colorado Springs, US)
Perfect Bicycle

As soon as I saw its sleek, vintage look, I knew this was the perfect bike for me. Ordering could not have been easier. And having it shipped to and assembled by a local bike shop made it a breeze. Six weeks later, I love everything about this bike and could not be happier with my choice. I can't say enough about it!

Thanks so much for sharing. The Driggs is a real head turner so we're glad you're able to enjoy it and appreciate the feedback. -Ryan Zagata

Look At That Rack!

I had won a New Belgium cruiser a few weeks ago. It was shipped to me and while in transit, the rack was bent. I located the rack on the website to fit the bike. It shipped quickly and was very easy to install. My overall experience was great! I was informed about this purchase from the moment I ordered it and it was easy to track until it was delivered.

Thanks so much for sharing Johny. So glad you're digging your rack. -Ryan Zagata
