My journey starting with submitting questions about the Franklin to the form in BBC website. I’m pretty sure the company founder was answering them. Then I went to the showroom and get excellent treatment. They let me drive a few models and talked me through the proces. I’m super happy with the Franklin 3.
I got this bike almost exclusively because of the price point, but it's turned out to be perfect for my riding needs. I probably put between 60-80 miles on it a week, and the three speed has been perfect for a mostly flat commute with one serious hill. The ride is smoother and the gears have held up way better than the craigslist find I used to ride. The delivery through a local bike shop was a breeze, and I've returned there for free tune-ups since. Couldn't recommend both the bike and the experience more.
I was looking for a lightweight Dutch-style step through bike for casual neighborhood/beach riding at a reasonable price and couldn't seem to find The One, UNTIL I stumbled upon one of these beauties in my old neighborhood in Brooklyn. The Franklin 3-speed is a dream. I love the sleek, thoughtful design, the soft cushiony leather, and the simple logo. It's a high quality bike and looks more expensive than it is. I got it in sea glass and it's so rich and beautiful in person. She gets compliments everywhere I go! Most importantly, it's the smoothest, easiest, most comfortable ride. Even longer, more arduous rides have been a breeze. I'm 5'5 and the S/M is the perfect size for me, and it's light enough that I can easily carry it up and down stairs. Pleasure to ride, super pretty, and unmatched quality and design at this price point. Couldn't ask for more.
I also can't say enough good things about the customer service and Buy & Ride experience. When my first color of choice was out of stock, they were very kind and talked me through my options. The bike arrived at a local bike shop less than 2 weeks later, they assembled and adjusted it for me, I got an email when it was ready and rode it home that day. So easy. The guys at that shop are awesome and, as someone who is *not* a bike expert, it's nice to know where I can go if I need anything. I really appreciate Brooklyn Bicycle Co's values around supporting local businesses. Great company, great product.
I absolutely love my bike! Everyone at Brooklyn was so kind and friendly that I would recommend buying a bicycle from them over any other company. My Franklin 3 rides like a dream! I have been so excited about getting back into cycling and I did a lot of research online before deciding to go with Brooklyn. Needless to say, I am so glad that I did! My bike fits all of my commuter needs and is super cute! You truly get more than what you pay for when you go with Brooklyn. I also really appreciated the payment plan option as I am a Full-time student! If you are on the fence, definitely go with Brooklyn.
I recently purchased a Franklin 3 and it is the perfect bike. I almost went with the 1 speed because I will be mostly doing local riding without many hills, but I'm glad I chose the 3 speed because I like having the flexibility of speeds. This bike is BEAUTIFUL and rides so smoothly. It is a comfortable ride, even for someone who has not been on a bike in awhile. The customer service was excellent, I had a little snag with a promotional code and it was handled very quickly and courteously. The bike was assembled and adjusted for me at a local bike store and the whole experience was lovely from start to finish!
