A solid ride

Been riding the Driggs 3 for about three weeks about 10 miles a day around town. It does well in hilly urban areas, and I don't regret not getting the 7 speeds. (Its supposed to be exercise too, right?) Bike has a solid feel over uneven pavement, and the seat is quite comfortable. Looks good, rides good. I'm 6'1" and almost feel like I could have gotten the smaller version as the top bar is quite high, but at the same time I like the largeness of the bike. The vegan "leather" on the grips seems to slide a bit in the FL humidity, but I'm likely going to change those out anyway. Overall, a good, solid and stylish bike right out of the box (or out of the hands of the bike build "partner"), followed by good customer service.

JM - thanks for sharing your thoughts on this. So thrilled you had a great all around experience and are logging some serious miles on your new steed. -Ryan Zagata

Love this bike

This is my super fun stylish townie bike. I ride it with my wife to the bar, with my daughter to get coffee and to my folks for Saturday morning breakfast and sometimes along the bike path. The build quality is great and it's just a very cool bike.

Benjamin - thanks so much for taking the time to share your thoughts on the Driggs 7. -Ryan Zagata

Very impressive package; excellent commuter bike

I use a Driggs 3 for commuting around 7 miles round trip on flat city streets. I'm 6'3" and 230lbs. It's hard to find any quality bike in my size that 1) doesn't weigh a ton and 2) has good ride quality. The Driggs delivers. It's a quality chromoly frame and the double top tube makes this bike incredibly stable and solid, while at the same time smoothing out some of the rough patches as only a quality steel frame can do. I ride it sometimes with the rear rack with panniers and sometimes without, but taking it off or putting it on is a breeze. Like the previous reviewer, the only thing I felt I had to change right away was the saddle (replaced with a Brooks Flyer), and I also swapped the Kenda tires for slightly more aggressive touring tires. It's mostly personal preference. All in all, however, I would highly recommend the Driggs series right out of the box. I opted for the Nexus 3-speed hub and if you can get by with 3 speeds it works great on flat roads; maybe one more tooth on the big ring would be nice but that's splitting hairs. If you are looking for a good commute bike or just an all around recreational bike you should definitely give Brooklyn Bicycle Co a serious look. Overall the quality of the bike is very high for its price point. Very impressed with this company and its products.

Chris - thank you so much for taking the time to share such a thorough review and photos. We love what you've done with your Driggs 3. -Ryan Zagata

A great bike for commuting

I've owned the Driggs 3 for about 3 years and have to say that it's one of the best purchases I've ever made. I don't own a car, so this is my main transportation between April & November/ December. It has so many features to recommend it that it's hard to know where to begin. I'm in my 40's and about 6' tall, so I opted for the XL model; the frame size and geometry make for a very comfortable ride with an upright posture. The internal gearing lets you change gears while stopped at a light; this is more of a convenience than anything, but definitely appreciated in the city. Overall, the fit and finish are excellent, with good-quality components throughout. Here were the negatives for me:
1) I broke spokes on the rear wheel during the first couple of months; my commute has some climbs and I'm a 200lb guy. My bike shop wound up re-building the wheel with heavy gauge spokes at no cost (shout out to Joe Mamma Cycles in Ottawa!). This really shouldn't happen, so it may be the spokes are under-engineered, or there was a QA issue. Resolved to my satisfaction, so no harm no foul.
2) The granny gear is fine, but I find myself occasionally wanting a higher top gear for flat topography.
3) The grips lasted through three seasons; these see a lot of wear, so not a big deal. Making custom leather grips was a good project for a winter afternoon.
4) The seat is very marshmallow-like in its cushioning. Totally subjective, but I wound up upgrading to a Brooks.

That's it! A high-satisfaction ride that will give years of reliable service. Oh yeah- I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that it's a good-looking bike, too!

Wow! Thank you Andrew. We're thrilled that you've incorporated your city bike into your life and that it continues to deliver as planned. For the issues you noted, we've definitely improved upon the spokes & saddle since 2014 with our saddles now exclusively provided by Selle Royale. For the gearing, it's an easy fix to have a bike shop swap out the freewheel to one with less teeth. That will make your top gear more challenging. -Ryan Zagata
