Had never considered buying a bike online unseen but stumbled across a great review on Brooklyn Bike Company so got in touch. Ryan and the team were super helpful and supportive during the sales process. It’s early days but I’m really happy with my purchase so far and have no hesitation in recommending these guys!
The bike rack is great. It was easy to install and looks fantastic! Everyone at Brooklyn Bicycle is wonderful to work with and very helpful!
I've taken this on a few long rides and it's unquestionably reliable, smooth as almond butter, and aesthetically pleasing more than any bike on my route. This bike makes riding more than 10 miles effortless and fun -- it's also light enough for me to carry up stairs with no regret of taking it out again.
Overall this company is doing great things and provides wonderful service -- I'm grateful to have my dream bike so accessible and support a small business.
The Roebling is a great bike for my commute to school and trail riding on the weekends. It's light enough to transport easily but stable enough to handle uneven ground (either trails or rough Michigan roads). I paired mine with the Brooklyn Bike Co fenders and they get me to school mud-free on the rainy days. Customer service was great and helped me choose the right model and frame size for my needs. Would recommend for an all around great bike!
These fenders keep the rain and mud away while riding in wet conditions. I purchased these with my Roebling bike and they were installed together which was super convenient. The profile is sleek and fits nicely with the bike.
I wanted a smooth and comfortable ride for bopping around town and getting groceries, and I got it. For the money, it would be tough to find a better value out there for a new ride.
The materials used, welding, sealed bearings and geometry are all top notch. The double-butted chromoly steel frame has a good bit of flex also, which makes for a very forgiving ride. I decided to swap out a few components to suit my style and needs, but the stock kit is thoughtfully put together.
Most of all, Ryan and the team at BBC are amazing! It was like talking to friends in person. I felt very good with this purchase from start-to-finish.
Uber-cool bike built for NYC riding. A no-nonsense, eye-catching fixie at a reasonable price born in Brooklyn. What’s not to cheer about?
This bike is just what I was looking for. It’s lightweight and versatile over different terrain; the upright handlebar is comfortable and easy to steer. The internal gear system is very convenient for changing gears and works well for the area I live; if you live in a more hilly area you may want to consider the 7-speed. It’s very comfortable and the cream color is so pretty.
I immediately felt much more comfortable on this bike then others I have ridden. Having it made to my height specifications and particular needs was a wonderful decision. I do wish it was a bit lighter (I happen to have to carry up two flights of stairs), but other than that, I am perfectly delighted with my Franklin!
My wife loves her bike. Customer service was top notch as well as the build and style for the cost and quality of what we bought. Love it!
Brooklyn resident here. Was on the market for a bike to get around on casual sunset rides with my girlfriend around the neighborhood. We went into the showroom and met Ryan - one of the nicest guys ever! We we're basically already sold based on past reviews and the look of the bikes, but Ryan's personality sealed up any doubts we had. Bought two bikes and been happy ever since!
I love my bike! It's a great ride, works for the hills in SF + I get a ton of compliments on the design. Amazing customer service. 10/10 would recommend.
Love my bike and get so many compliments! Definitely recommend it if you're looking for a good looking cruiser!
I live about 8.5 miles away from where I work. In an effort to cut living costs, I decided to sell my car and commute via bicycle.
I didn't know the least bit about bikes aside from how to ride one, but I knew I needed something low-maintenance, not too expensive, and pretty durable. Style wasn't the highest on the list, but it was still a factor. My first intro to Brooklyn Bicycle was via a Forbes article where the writer test rode one of their bikes and then wrote an article about it. It piqued my interest and a few weeks later I reached out with a few questions. Their customer service was what hooked me. Ryan was incredibly helpful and responsive. In fact, I was so pleased that I convinced my wife that she needed to get a bike from them as well (which she did! The Franklin 7).
In regards to my bike experience, I ride it 4 times a week for work which is about 17 miles round trip. We've also ridden our bikes to the beach and back a few times which is about a 28 mile round trip. It's relatively flat with a few inclines/declines. So far, so good—in regards to what I mentioned above, my Bedford 7 checks off all the boxes I was looking for. We love taking the bikes out and viewing the city from a different perspective.
Definitely not missing the car.
I got this bike for my wife and she loves it - great for cruising around town and feeling happy about it. Super good customer service, fast delivery to my bike shop (even here in rural New Hampshire), and a pleasing ride. Went for the Selle Royal seat and the box on the back.
I bought this rack for my bike and it looks great! The style is simple but fits well with the look of the bike and the wooden crate. So happy with my purchase!
This is the other ½ of a pair of Brooklyn bikes for my son and new D-I-L bought as a wedding gift. This one got a custom handlebar, Soma f/r racks, a stripped and polished chain guard, a handmade basket, and Schwalbe Delta Cruisers (26x1 ⅜) — I also installed water bottle mounts on the downtube. I was going for that ultra cool 70’s mixte vibe... how did I do?
I love my wooden crate so much, words cannot describe. It’s very useful for throwing in bags for errands or a sweatshirt but more importantly, it completes the look of my bike! It’s easy to assemble and very useful.
This was easy to install. The quick release is perfect for on the go. I also love that the wicker fits in perfectly for cruising the beach.
1st bike in over 20 years. I got the Roebling hybrid. Very nice bike. Great price and great customer service. The show room in Greenpoint is a nice set up. I was able to actually test ride my bike in the long hallways. I highly recommend
The U lock works really well but I rarely use the cable bc the whole thing is a bit fiddly.
Easy to attach and remove, but the light but might fall off of the strap, especially if you carry them in a bag with other objects, while not biking. That being said, still very good lights!
