I surprised my wife with a new Franklin 3 as a birthday present. She is thrilled with her new bike. We ride on weekends on the Jersey shore and we have been stopped several times by people admiring her bicycle. Beautiful to look at, great riding and beautifully appointed. The entire experience with Ryan and Danielle was wonderful. I highly recommend Brooklyn Bicycle to anyone looking to buy a new bicycle. By the way, my wife loves the helmet and basket as well.
Obsessed is an understatement. My first bike as an adult and wouldn’t change anything about the Lorimer! Working with Brooklyn Bicycle was also a great choice. Super helpful and knowledgeable! Appreciate ya!
I bought this bike for my wife. The bike is really simple and clean. it has a nice geometry, and a handsome appearance. My wife thinks it is a comfortable ride and she thinks the range of gears works well for our hilly neighborhood. The delivery to our local bikeshop for the setup worked very well.
Thanks for sharing Eric. We are glad she is enjoying. -Ryan Zagata
Had it only for a month, but so far it's been a great addition to my commute options. Only hiccup is it seems the brakes are already starting to give out a little bit (which seems to be a common issue, unfortunately).
really nice bike ,high quality,I was surprise on the first ride,didn't think it would exceed my expectations,preforms great beyond my imagination. I am really impressed and happy with my bike,Ii ride 10 miles a day, I would highly recommend Brooklyn bikes to anyone looking for a great bike..nice job guys keep up the awesome work !

This is a Great bike for zipping around town! Cuts through wind with no trouble! Handles the stop and go of traffic perfectly! Feels so sturdy I'm never afraid and yet it's still longer of the lightest bicycles I've ever ridden!
I’m so pleased upgrading the color of my tires from factory black to cream. It gave my Franklin 7 a unique retro look and I love it. Keeping them clean hasn’t been an issue in fact a little dust gives it character.
This gorgeous beauty gives me serious riding! Second ride on it was over 15 miles and my body (including my seat) loved it!! Performance and comfort on the cutest frame ever!!!!!! Thanks, BBC!!! It’s a 5-heart rating!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
I was not so sure about getting a fixie bike but this ride is very smooth and comfortable even though I was out of shape
Also the team was very patient and kind while helping me figure out the model that was best for me.
I’m glad I purchased it, I’m looking forward to spending many years with it and getting to work faster and healthier than by driving.
Bought a Diggs 3, and knew the seat would probably not be ideal for me, so I got this one. Looks GREAT with the bike. It's not as cushiony as you'd think, so I ended up also getting a get seat cover. I guess I just need more cussion for my tush! Quality piece though, and would definitely recommend.
I was really nervous about buying a bike online, but the entire process was so seamless. The service was great and so is the bike. I love its simple and sophisticated design, and how smoothly it rides. It is also light enough for me to carry it up and down 3 flights of stairs on a daily basis. So pleased with this purchased.
Although there at least 2 or 3 Brooklyn Bike in my town, I get a lot of”ooh” and “ ahh”s when I drive around town.
A bit heavier than I expected this bike feels really solid and rides great on the beach in low tide, when the sand is packed down. I love it!
This is the first bike I've ever bought and I couldn't be happier. First of all, it's adorable. Second of all it's great for a new or inexperienced rider - super comfortable and easy to ride.
this bike has been a game changer for me. I’ve been citi-biking for the past two years, and was starting to have serious knee and lower back pain. since having this bike it’s gone away completely. It’s so light, and the gears are amazing. Going over the bridges daily has been so much easier, I really don’t know how I want so long without this bike.
Love all the features, the bike is perfect. I get compliments all the time on how beautiful it is! Had the luck to get it assembled directly at Brooklyn Bike Co since I live in Bk, and the build time was pretty quick, the attention was great.
I usamy bike everyday for work commutes and its great to feel great, safe and cool while riding it.
Also took it down to the rockaways and it glided the whole 26+ Mile ride!
Thank you BKBIkeCo!
This bike (Franklin 7) is just what I was looking for! Easy to ride and beautiful, get so many compliments! The matte coral is so pretty. I love the vintage look.
Also very good staff and the owner Ryan so friendly and helpful. I’ll give it 10 stars if I could.
I bought this bicycle primarily to commute to and from work, with a stop to drop the kid at daycare. It has been fantastic, handling wet Boston weather and our gritty potholed streets with ease, thanks to the puncture resistant tires and internal gear hub. The bike feels sturdy and can handle the rigors of city riding, but it still feels nimble enough for me to accelerate with ease up a hill or from a stop, and I can carry it up and down stairs easily enough.
This is the first bicycle I've had with such an upright riding position and it surprised me on the test ride, but I went for it because I like how visible it makes me in traffic and it's very comfortable for someone like me who has lower back issues. And it just feels fun to ride!
I outfitted the bike with a front mounted Yepp Mini child seat, lights, a bell, and a folding grocery pannier, and now I very rarely need to use a car. My kid's reaction to their first ride on the bike was "I LOVE IT!" - safe to say they're also a fan!
I got the 3 speed as Brooklyn is flat. Love my bike, easy quick sweet little ride. Local biz with very friendly staff and owner. They are active in our community, I have a very high opinion of their product and the biz.
Ok it is very cute. But it is also easy to get on and off, fast. Which I appreciate, and it feels more solid than my other brands. Biking in Brooklyn you need a solid helmet.
Best bike ever had, incredibly smooth rides and very practical. Thanks to the Brooklyn Bike team as their service was a 10! You guys are the best!!!!
This bell is ideal for me. I use it to alert people while passing. It us small but powerful. I have used it many times and I am very Happy with it.
