Fantastic Customer Support and Solid Quality!

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.

Thanks so much Jonathan. We are glad the gift was well received. -Ryan Zagata

Thumbs up

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.

Thanks so much Brooke for sharing your review. For the bike hanger, they make ones specifically for step-through bikes that take into account the geometry. -Ryan Zagata

Adorbs!

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!

Thanks so much Kristen. We're glad you found our Willow 3 to be much more than just a head turner. -Ryan Zagata

Willow

Brooklyn bicycle co has reignited my love for biking. I have purchased my second Willow recently. I keep one at the cabin and one in the city for errands and joy riding. So very comfortable and low maintenance, pure joy!

After years of high maintenance road bikes and mountain bikes that caused sore wrists, firearms and back, the Willow is so much more comfortable. Sitting upright, you can feel the breeze and enjoy the view way better than the hunched over posture of my other bikes.
The toughest part was choosing a color!

Thanks for sharing Lori. We're thrilled you've doubled down on the Willow 3. -Ryan Zagata

Forever Fan Girl

I commuted in through Old Town Alexandria this morning and it was so SIMPLE. No kit,no special shoes,no sense of urgency -- must go fast syndrome inherent on a road bike. In fact, I simply could not go fast. The gearing and geometry insisted I stay cool, you know, ask yourself, "What would Mary Poppins do?". Ha ha ha. She would sit bolt upright, smile, and simple move forward. That is exactly what I did. Wonderful!

When I got to work, I was not sweaty at all. I was not in hurry to get in the office and change clothes before my first meeting. I just locked her up, pulled my bags out of the basket panniers I installed, and strolled on in.

About the bike. That red is like 'bike under the Christmas Tree' red. Perfect. The frame is so well built. My husband and I were, frankly, shocked. I love the head-badge (nice touch). I love the minimalist paint logo - small white Brooklyn on down tube. The rack is outstanding. And, that saddle! Royal Selle does it again. Great choice Ryan. No pain at all, even in street clothes. Here is a bonus: I was thinking about getting another Carradice (big fan) saddlebag. Oh, but then I thought, that saddle won't have loops. I looked. It does! Whaaaat?! Unheard of these days. No Brooks saddle needed. Brown is the best color too. The grips are cool. It shifts like a champ.

The way I had that bike rolling down the road in 48 hours was unbelievable. Big Wheel hooked me up and built it last Friday. I rode it home that afternoon. They made sure I knew what I was doing and that the bike fit. They said I could come in anytime for support.

In summary, GREAT JOB BROOKLYN BICYLCES!

Thank you so much for taking the time to share such a thorough review Michele. Hope our paths cross in Alexandria some day. -Ryan Zagata
