How do I get my bike?
Each bicycle includes free shipping AND assembly through our Buy & Ride program.

We'll ship your bike to your local bike shop for professional assembly, and let you know when it's ready to be picked up.

Where are your bikes made?

Our bikes are designed in Brooklyn—by our in-house team in collaboration with members of our Board of Advisors, a select group of industry experts—and manufactured in China and Taiwan.

Still not sure about our bikes? Check out our Factory page for a peek inside our manufacturing facilities.

Warranty
Brooklyn Bicycle Co. frames are warrantied against manufacturing defects for the life of the original owner, while parts and hardware are guaranteed for one year after purchase.

Does my bike come pre assembled?
We would never ask our customers to assemble a bike by themselves - that’s why we devised our Buy & Ride program. Instead of arriving in pieces on your doorstep, your bike is shipped to a local shop where professionals properly assemble it, and make sure everything is perfectly adjusted for you, long before you hit the pavement.

What if I'm in between sizes?
If you're in between on any of our models, we always suggest sizing down. If you still need help or just want reassurance that you’re making the right choice, give us a call at 800.631.0630 or shoot us an email. You can also schedule a call with our Bike Concierge. We understand that a bicycle is a big investment, and we want you to be comfortable in your choice.

Do you have a store?
Our Brooklyn Showroom offers the most unique bike buying experience in New York. Click here to learn more about the space.

We also have a large network of stocking dealers across the country, who you can visit for a test ride. Click here to find a stocking dealer local to you.

What is your return policy for bicycles?
We can usually resolve any issues without resulting in a return so please reach out to our customer service team with any issues. If a return is necessary, please note returns must be initiated within 30 days of your purchase date (or within 30 days of shipment, for backordered items only). Returned and exchanged bicycles incur a $150.00 USD restocking fee. All purchases on discounted bicycles are final sale. Please note Final Sale items may not be returned nor exchanged.

What Are the Differences Between the Franklin and Willow Step-through Models?

Looking at the Franklin and Willow, but not quite sure how the models compare? No worries – we get this question a lot, so we’ve put together a quick rundown on what sets these models apart!

 

#TLDR (AKA Too Long Didn't Read)? Here's a Quick Summary:

 SIMILARITIES DIFFERENCES
FRAME GEOMETRY HANDLEBARS
COLOR-MATCHED FENDERS & CHAINGUARD SADDLE
3-SPEED INTERNAL GEARING GRIPS
KICKSTAND INCLUDED TIRE COLOR
REAR CARRIER
CHAIN COATING
7-SPEED GEARING
FRAME MATERIALS

 

 

1. HANDLEBARS

This is probably the most notable difference between our step-through models. With the Willow featuring our Swept-Back Handlebars. This means a much more upright (European-style) riding position (think sitting in a chair) that is well suited for leisurely riding.

The Franklin models feature our Relaxed Ride Handlebars, which are slightly more aggressive and ideal for both commuting and leisurely weekend rides.

 

2. TIRES

The Willow comes with cream tires, whereas the Franklin sports black tires. Do note that regardless of color, all our tires offer an added layer of puncture resistance.

 

3. ACCESSORIES

The Willow is our premium model and includes a rear carrier, as well as an upgraded sprung saddle and grip set from Selle Royal’s Royalgel™ line.

The Franklin features Selle Royal Vegan Leather saddle and grips. Please note that this bike does not come with a rear carrier. If you would like to purchase a rear carrier for this model, you will need a 26” carrier for the S/M Franklin and a 700C carrier for the Large Franklin model.

Both models come with color matched fenders and chainguard, as well as a kickstand.

 

4. RUST-PROHIBITIVE COATING & GEARING

As our signature model, the Willow has a few additional premium features including a rust-prohibitive coating on the chain and internal gearing resulting in less maintenance and more riding.

The Franklin 3 model includes internal gearing (just like the Willow), whereas the Franklin 7 has an external 7-Speed derailleur.

 

5. FRAME MATERIALS

On a more technical note – the geometry on both frames is identical, however the Franklin and Willow models are made from different materials. Are you currently thinking “WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?! I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT BIKES!!”? Do not fret – we totally get it! Take a breath and read on…

The Willow frame is made with double-butted 4130 Chromoly Steel. We use a stronger grade of steel, which allows us to use thinner tubing resulting in a lighter frame.

The Franklin frame is crafted with specially engineered high-tensile steel. What does this mean? We are able to offer a similar bike of a more moderate price point. Our Franklin model is the most economical step-through model in our portfolio of bikes (as well as a team favorite)!

Still have questions on sizing (or anything else)? Email us or schedule a concierge call with our team. We’d love to help!

 

Don’t forget: All of our bikes include Free Shipping & Professional Assembly.
