Why You'll Love It
I've been riding this kind of city bike for 20 years (Toronto and other places) and this bike is excellent. I like steel frames for the bit of butter you get in the ride, but this one has a smoother ride than others I've had. (And still have). I think it might be the frame geometry. It has a bit longer wheel base than my other bikes, and I think that may be what has improved ride quality. I have a similar bike in Toronto but with a 7 speed Shimano internal hub, and I wasn't sure if 3 speeds would be enough. But it is! In fact I wouldn't want more. One other reviewer said he put a smaller cog on the back to change the gear ratio. While the stock set-up is I'm sure right for most riders, I'm a big fit guy and I think I will do the same at some stage, as I'm cruising too easily in third gear and could use more speed. Another thing I appreciate about the bike is the comfortable seat and grips. I was thinking of doing a Brooks saddle, but not sure that will be necessary. Also the grips are great - vegan leather? i think that means fake leather, but it's really good fake leather. The grips have a little cushioning underneath which really makes them comfortable. The twist shifter is great too - very smart for quick shifting in the city to get out of somebodies way. This is a well thought out bike and great value. I only wish there had been a black one available. I was impatient so went with the white one in stock at the showroom in Brooklyn (which was an enjoyable visit in itself). But the ivory colour is growing on me... Anyway, exceeds expectations on all levels. Thank you.
I was looking for a simple and stylish commuter and I found it! Since it's still Winter where I live, my riding has been limited to about 30 miles so far. But in the 30 or so miles that I've ridden so far, over paved bike trails, gravel, city streets and suburban roads the bike has been great. Smooth shifting and the 7 gear is all I've needed for moderate hills. I ordered the rear rack with the bike and added the front rack a few days after I got the bike. I carry a camera bag on the front and the tripod on the back and it does the job that I expected. Great bike, great price and great ordering and delivery service.
From purchase to the first ride I haven't been disappointed. It's exactly what I was looking for down to the look and performance, I couldn't be happier with my bike. It's going to save me a bunch of money on parking at work, while also giving me the chance to see more of my city that I wouldn't be able to while driving a car. They also chose a great, super helpful shop to deliver and assemble the bike and easy for pick up. I will definitely continue to use this local bike shop for any maintenance and upkeep. Thank you, BBC for getting me out on the roads. I'm looking forward to the journies ahead.
I moved abroad and wanted to have a good memory of my time in Brooklyn. This bike was the perfect fit and I can't stress enough how great of a service I received. Ryan, the owner, was most helpful and I truly had an amazing buying experience. I fully endorse Brooklyn Bicycle and can only recommend it to anyone looking for a cool bike and a great experience.
I just got my Bedford 3 (+ Universal Rear Carrier & Handcrafted Wooden Bike Crate) a couple days ago and the bike is fantastic! I live in a fairly small beach town in Southern California so I finally ditched the car and this is my "daily driver". It's everything I needed functionally and the fact that the bike is absolutely beautiful doesn't hurt either.
Brooklyn Bicycle Co.'s customer service also deserves a huge shout out. The "Buy And Ride" business model made the purchase totally seamless and the team was quick to talk me through the process when I called in with some questions. Thanks to SoCal Bike in Oceanside for the build as well.
I've never ordered a bike on line. It was honestly seamless with outstanding customer communication throughout the order, shipping and assembly process. This is what customer service is supposed to be like!
