For moderately hilly areas with minimal maintenance
For easy riding with no wardrobe restrictions
Ultra-lightweight double-butted 4130 Chromoly frame for light, yet absorbent ride
Impressed with quality.
Very nice to ride.
I got this bike for my birthday and I am seriously in love! It's super comfortable and I'm pretty petite so an adult bike that's not too big is pretty difficult to find. I'm recommending Brooklyn to everyone I know!
Customer support is one of the first things I look for in a company. Everyone I spoke with was very knowledgable, kind, and willing to happily answer all of my questions. My girlfriend ordered the Willow 3 and we were not disappointed in the quality! Brooklyn Bicycle Co. paid attention to every little detail in designing this bike. Every component feels solid and the ride compares to no other bike. The styling of this bike is timeless and the quality is built to last.
It is a lovely sturdy bike. It is a bright orange. I wish I had gone for more gears. It only has 3. However, at the time, I had not ridden a bike in 30 years so it was a starter. The other issue it has a very wide seat and a rack on the back. These are nice features but it makes it hard to hang on a bike hanger (vertically). Also, the wideness of it makes it a bit hard to maneuver and my foot bangs into the spokes quite often. Otherwise it suits all my needs.
I'll be honest - I bought the Willow because of its looks. However, it is also super comfortable and easy to ride and shift. I just love it! Also, I live in Minneapolis and the shipping and bike pick up process could not have been easier. Thanks so much BBC!
