So great we bought two

My wife bought me a Driggs three summers ago after coming back from a trip to The Hague. Needless to say, I love it. The problem is she also loved it so much that she ended up riding mine all the time, preferring it over a purportedly much fancier (i.e., expensive) woman's hybrid that used to be her errand/commuter bike! So I bought her a Willow earlier this summer and, problem solved-- now we both have bikes we are thrilled with. We live in central Denver so steep hills are not a problem, and the three-speed is perfect to get anywhere in town. She chose the sea glass color which gets compliments anywhere and everywhere we stop. She reports that the step over frame makes it ideal for cruising to dinner in a skirt or summer dress and for mounting the bike when she has either saddle bags on the back or the baby seat on the front. Regarding the latter, we have a Thule Ridealong Mini that is easily moved from one bike to the other-- our son has ridden on the front of these Brooklyn bikes since he was eight months old. Both the Willow and the Driggs are balanced, stable, and yet still quick with the baby seat installed. Indeed, the ride is comfortable enough that our son has fallen asleep on the bike!

Thanks so much for the repeat business. We are glad you were able to reclaim your Driggs. Also glad to hear that the bikes have become a family affair with the little ones. -Ryan Zagata
Head turner

I bought the Sea Glass colour and love both the colour and the ride. I'm 5"11 and find the large comfortable. I loved the convenience of having it shipped to a local shop and not having to deal with assembly myself. Having used it for a while, I think I might have got the 7 speed if I did it over again, but that's a matter of personal taste rather than anything against the bike. The swept back handlebars took a few minutes to get comfortable with for someone used to a road bike, but again, that has to do with my own experience rather than any problem with the bike. Would buy again.

Thanks for sharing Laura. Glad you are enjoying your Willow 3. The sea glass is an incredibly popular colorway for us. -Ryan Zagata
So happy with my new bike!

Zipping around town on errands, in the countryside, and with my kids my Willow is the perfect bike!

Thanks for sharing Nicole. We are glad you enjoying your Willow 3 bike. -Ryan Zagata
I am loving my new Willow!

I have an 8-mile commute on a mix of paved/gravel path and a teeny bit of road. She is perfect for a leisurely cruise to work. Thank you!

Thanks so much Jennifer. We are so thrilled that your Willow 3 is making for an enjoyable commute. -Ryan Zagata
Very Happy Overall with my Willow 3

I am very happy with my Willow 3. Changing gears is a breeze! 3 gears are all I need for commuting around town and on the many paved trails we have in my area. The ride is smooth and the bike is very well made. The Sea Glass color is gorgeous. I am 5'6" tall ( right on the edge between the medium and large size frame) and decided to go with the medium. I am having to get used to riding a bike again as I haven't ridden in over 10 years and currently find I am having a little trouble with the tight turning radius (or so it seems) with the front wheel. Not sure why I am experiencing that. I can't decide if I picked the wrong size bike frame or if it would happen on any bike with handle bars that curve back towards the rider. Having not ridden in over a decade, I am assuming any slight difficulties I am having in the moment may not apply in the future. Customer service was great! Shipping to my local bike shop was quicker than I expected. Overall I am very happy with my purchase.

Thanks so much for taking the time to share your feedback Lori. For the tight turning radius - have you tried adjusting your handlebar height or angle? The swept back handlebars are a unique experience for riders who are unaccustomed to that style. -Ryan Zagata
