Roebling/Franklin 3 Speed

After a long search my wife and I decided on Brooklyn Bikes, and we couldn't be happier. The bikes look great and ride even better.

I ride the Roebling from the UWS to LES/Soho on a regular basis, and it's a fun ride. I don't dread the inclines of Riverside Park or the Central Park loop anymore as I did on my single speed. The Roebling is fast, sturdy, and stable. It really is the perfect NYC bike.

My wife rides the Franklin 3 spd and she is also enamored with the look and ride of the bike. I rode it back from their Greenpoint show room to the UWS, and can attest to how well it rides. In particular, the stability of the ride.

The crew at BK Bicycle is even better than their bikes. Their patience, responsiveness, cooperation, and courteousness is beyond compare.

I highly recommend taking a looking at them if you're in the market for a bike, not to mention you'll be supporting a homegrown NYC business.

Thank you so much for sharing Arzhang. We appreciate you acknowledging both the quality of our products and the effort our team put forth in getting you on your bike. We appreciate your business. -Ryan Zagata

Whizzing through Long Beach

I ordered this bike towards the end of 2020 and was able to start the new year on a high note when I was notified that my bike was ready for pickup. So far the Roebling has been awesome!. I love the sleek matte finish and the overall look of the bike. It has 8 different gears and is a very smooth and comfortable ride, making it perfect for riding around town in Long Beach, CA. Personally I was looking for a solid hybrid/fitness bike and the Roebling checks all of the boxes. I also love the fact that I am able to support smaller businesses, especially in times like these. I can't say enough about the team at BBC. Everyone I emailed or talked to was super friendly, professional, and always willing to go the extra mile to answer any question I had. I also love the fact that they work with local bike shops all across the country. It made the process of picking up my bike quick and easy. All I had to do was show up to my local bike shop, show my receipt and ID, and I was able to ride off on my new set of 2-wheels shortly after. One last thing to note is their great warranty policy. I just found out about this today when I received an email from BBC, and it shows they really care about their customers and their satisfaction. I would recommend these bikes to anyone looking for an affordable, quality ride. I can't wait to put many more miles on my Roebling. Cheers and happy riding!

Thanks so much for sharing such thorough feedback Andrew. It is always a thrill to see our customers enjoying our bikes. -Ryan Zagata

Could not be happier

Could not be happier
I ordered the Roebling in late summer knowing I would not receive it until December, but living in Florida, I was willing to wait. Love this bike, very impressed with the quality and the buying experience -- delivered to a bike shop I could walk, where it was assembled perfectly so I could just ride it home!

Thanks for much for sharing your experience with both the bike and our Buy & Ride program. We're glad it was easy. -Ryan Zagata

Love this bike and great Customer service!

Its light, responsive and it looks great :)
Most importantly, I had an issue with the delivery of a lock and customer service was super speedy, accommodating and generous in order to help me out.

Great affordable bike.

Bought this for my 6’ 16 yr olds son. He rides it all over the city. Loves the bike. Thank you

Thanks so much for sharing Thomas. We're glad your son is putting some good miles in on his new bike. -Ryan Zagata

Excellent bike

I used to build my own bikes. I like them solid, durable, medium in weight. This bike is all that and more. Love the bike. Love the customer service. Highly recommend.

Thanks so much for sharing Lance. We're thrilled that you're impressed by and enjoying your new commuter bike. Thanks also for acknowledging the service you received. -Ryan Zagata

When a company delivers what they promised, and in perfect condition, they must be thanked and applauded.
I couldn’t be happier with my two bicycles and accessories.
Thank you.

Loving it

As someone who hasn't ridden in over 40 years, this bike made for an easy adjustment back into flow of riding. I was nervous at first but thought it best to pull the trigger and let that be my motivation to get back on the horse. The ride is smooth and the seat is comfortable. I'm still learning to turn corners but with practice I'm sure I'll feel more confident. No regrets.

Thanks for sharing Lauren. We're glad you're back out riding. -Ryan Zagata

💕love love our new bikes!!

We waited a year for our new bikes and they were so worth the wait! I have a Willow and my husband has the Driggs 7. The 7 speed is perfect for Florida riding. Danielle was so patient with us throughout the process and kept us updated as we waited for our bikes to be back in stock due to COVID. We love them and would highly recommend them! Love the company and all the accessories we purchased! Thank you ☺️ so much Danielle!!!

Thanks so much for sharing your feedback Cindy. We're thrilled you're enjoying your bikes. -Ryan Zagata

Bedford 3 - Coo

I had been cycling through different bike brands all winter long. Really spinning my wheels about it. Finally, I came across Brooklyn Bicycle Company after a long and tiresome process. I pumped the brakes on buying from another brand and decided to get the Bedford 3. During my first ride, the bike spoke volumes. And not to switch gears, but the staff was incredibly helpful and the buying process smooth - never an uphill battle. Above all else the bike was reasonably priced, even after I adjusted for inflation.

You won’t regret this bike, it’s honestly amazing. I’m actually trying to get my friend to buy one right now, but he prefers unicycles. Yeah, he struggles socially and can’t handle-bars! It’s a vicious cycle.

This is literally the best bike I’ve ever owned.

Shout out to the folks at Silk Road Cycles, you folks are wheelie nice.

Thanks so much for sharing Joseph and for the seemingly futile attempt to get your mate on one of our steeds. We also appreciate you acknowledging the efforts the team puts forth to make sure things go smoothly. -Ryan Zagata

beautiful and functional with a few tweaks!

I love this rack! It looks really sleek on the bike and I get a lot of compliments on it! It's also really sturdy and functional -- however, it does cause the wheel to bend to the side due to the added weight so I also added a spring to the front wheel to keep it from falling over when the basket is installed. With the spring, the bike can stand up on its own with the kickstand. It's been great -- also definitely recommend a bungee cord with it! Have yet to see a higher quality or more aesthetically pleasing rack.

Thanks so much for sharing Kate. As you suggested, we strongly recommend a wheel stabilizer with this as the added weight of front carrier will cause the wheel to turn. You used the term 'bend' but I suspect you meant the wheel will turn when the bike is stationary. Thanks again. -Ryan Zagata
