Not all wheels are created equal. Ours offer first and foremost hubs with sealed bearings, which not only afford a smooth ride, but also keep water from rusting the wheel from the inside out. Our rims are double-walled for twice the durability, and offer a machined brake surface for smoother stops. To protect our tires against flats and our rims against damage, nylon rim strips are standard on all our bikes and all models are come stock with puncture resistant protection.
Even though wheels are the heart and soul of a bike, you'll be hard-pressed to find another brand putting as much thought into theirs as we do. Technical details that a casual rider might never know makes a world of difference in daily comfort, time and money spent on maintenance--not to mention overall enjoyment! At Brooklyn Bike Co., we say: enjoy your ride. Let us worry about the details!
