We're quite happy with my wife's Brooklyn Bicycle. It was then an easy jump to any of their accessories. Quality item. Arrived faster than expected and well in time for Mother's Day. The bolts that came with it were a little long, but unprompted, Brooklyn sent shorter bolts which addresses the long bolt that gets in the was of the highest rear gear cog.
Thanks for sharing John. We are thrilled your wife is enjoying her bike & rear carrier. -Ryan Zagata

I've had this bike for almost a year now and have put a lot of small local trips on it.
Pros: Handlebar shifting mechanism is intuitive, the bike is very quiet, and the main reason I upgraded - the lightweight frame. The bike can accelerate very quickly and maintains speed.
Cons: I ordered Small, and the handlebars sit just an inch or so lower than where I'd like but based on research I would need an extension piece to raise them at all.
Extra note: My local bike shop that assembled the bike sent me an email that the bike was ready a couple hours before they closed, and I didn't see the email until it was a few minutes too late. I called them and explained I live a couple blocks away, and they stayed late & unlocked the shop to let me get my bike after hours, and didn't rush the process at all. All that to say: I was very impressed, and Brooklyn Bicycle definitely picks good partners.
Thanks for such a thorough and detailed review Lisa. This is helpful for both us and our customers. The photos are also a great help. -Ryan Zagata
