I picked up my new Driggs 3 today at my local bike shop—paid up, fully assembled, and sporting the wooden bike crate I'd ordered with it. Suddenly the joy was back in my biking. I donated my clunky Raleigh mountain bike to a kid who needed some wheels, while my new Brooklyn Bicycle made ME feel like a kid again. Spring, summer, and fall are going to be filled with rolling happiness. And the journey is going to be invariably more fun than the destination.
The buying experience itself was a pleasure. I took advantage of the customer service chat and made myself a nuisance in emails to Ryan and his team. They were courteous, knowledgeable, and delivered on every promise. Thanks for that.
I’m going to be the proud owner of the driggs bike in the next few days! Can’t decided between the 3 or the 7? I bought another bike a few days ago. After I had purchased my new bike I wandered into another local bike shop in Edmonton. I had never heard of Brooklyn bikes but it was “ love at first site” as soon as I saw it I knew I need one. The next day I returned my new bike and am looking forward to being a proud new owner of one these beautiful bikes! The artist bike maker has returned and it’s a welcome sight.
I have owned the Driggs for just over three years, it’s been great. The buyers experience was the only factor that left me dissapointed; not only did it have to be assembled at a bike shop (no exceptions) and the frame is built in China, which feels misleading for what is sold as a quality made Brooklyn Bicycle.
I've had my Driggs 3 for around a month now. I love it. I use it mainly for commuting, but it also gets some use running to the liquor/grocery store or bar hopping. My typical commute looks like this: ride about a mile from my home to the lightrail station. Take two different trains with the Driggs and then bike about 1.5 miles to the office. In the evening I take one train back, and then ride about 7 miles back home. The Driggs is such a great bike to ride. Even in the cool fall months, you feel like you're cruising through a summer park. It's just *that* much fun to ride. The steel frame is nice and soft making for a smooth, absorbent ride. The stock saddle is fine, but I opted to switch it out with a Brooks. I also added a front rack and purchased the Brooklyn Bike Co. rear wooden crate. Really digging this bike. Between commuting, running out for eggs and milk, or grabbing drinks, the Driggs 3 is great. Highly recommend.
