Excellent product and super service!

I wish to thank Brooklyn Bicycle Co for their outstanding customer service. I had a very informative discussion prior to buying the Franklyn 8 Speed. Both, my husband and I enjoy riding these wonderful bikes. Excellent product and super service!

Thank you for sharing Michael. We appreciate your business and making the extra effort to acknowledge your experience with our team in addition to the bike. -Ryan Zagata

A winner

This is the second bike I purchased from Brooklyn Bicycle Company. The first one was a Roebling. I am very pleased with this purchase. The Franklin 8 Speed in ivory is an elegant-looking bike that rides very well and is comfortable. The customer service was very helpful in selecting the right bike. The shop assembling the bike was equally professional. I highly recommend the company to anyone in the market for a high-quality bike at a reasonable price.

Thanks for the repeat business Lutz. We're honored to have you back for a 2nd bike. -Ryan Zagata

Beautiful bike, easy ordering

I was a little nervous about ordering a bike online, but I decided to give it a shot based on the positive reviews. I was pleasantly surprised by how easy and quick the process was from ordering it to picking it up at my local bike shop. The Franklin 8 Speed looks and feels amazing. It is pure quality, through and through. Picking it up at my local shop introduced me to a great group of bicycle experts, which was an added bonus.

Thank you for sharing Angie and thanks also for sharing your experience with your local shop. Our partners are such an integral part of the experience that we love hearing feedback. Thanks again. -Ryan Zagata

Makes me smile every time I see it

The bike provides a smooth ride and I genuinely look forward to using it. Unlike some bikes I've owned in the past, this one is just as much a joy to look at as it is to ride, I'm so glad I chose it.

Thank you so much for sharing your feedback and your photo. We are truly thrilled that you're enjoying Franklin 8 city bike. -Ryan Zagata
