Nice bike apart from rim issues.

This bike has been very good to me so far, except for the rear rim. Although I always ride at the recommended tire pressure, the rim warped about a year in, and now three spokes have broken. Other than that, the bike has been reliable, user friendly and stylish.

Thanks for sharing Andrew. Often times when a spoke fails, the remaining bikes are severely stressed if the bike is continually ridden. Even if you repair the offending spoke, the others may well fail over time. We suggest to have the wheel rebuilt if any spokes fail to help ensure the integrity of the wheel is maintained. Thanks again. -Ryan Zagata

My new favorite bike

Brooklyn Bikes

After borrowing my wife’s Driggs for a good hunk of the last year, I went ahead and got my own this summer. This is a great all-around bike that is going to see a lot of duty scooting around town, hauling groceries, trying to keep up with the kids, and just getting out of the house for no reason.

For starters, I’m guessing that the biggest apprehension to grabbing one of these is the idea of buying a bike without kicking the tires. Two things on that. First, we had our bikes built up at two different bike shops, and both let us know that they were impressed with these bikes, commenting on the quality of the manufacturing and components. For our second Driggs, the mech who built it up also unboxed it. He gushed about the packaging and the care that went into safely and securely getting everything in and out without so much as a hint of a scratch. So don’t let online shopping be a reason not to go with Brooklyn.

If my wife had not snagged a Driggs last year, I don’t think it would have been my first choice. I’ve just always been into the more aggressive look of a flat-barred bike like the Bedford or the Wythe. But there is something freeing about the attitude of the Driggs. Its not a full-speed ahead, tuck position, dragging your knee on the ground when you turn kind of a bike. It’s more like a natural extension of your self in cruise-mode.

The combo of a three-speed internal with 700x35 tires is a sweet set-up for most every urban situation, unless you have significant hills. You’re not going to be jumping curbs, but you’re also not going to fear the occasional pothole.

The Driggs only comes in two sizes, and I fit dead center between the two. Between the sizing guide to get you started and the adjustability of the seat post and stem, you have a decent amount of room to get a dialed in fit.

I have read that the vegan leather handlebars and saddle can get a little slippery when wet, but I haven’t found that to be true. My wife has the Selle Royal Touring, and I have the retro Spring Comfort, and I like them both equally. I was actually planning on upgrading to a Brooks, but I just can’t justify it, because the existing combo looks so good together.

The only problem I’ve had since getting it has been deciding on whether to put a rack on the front. On the back end, you can’t go wrong with any of the myriad rack trunks out there. On the front, I’m trying to decide between a utilitarian basket or a low-profile carrier just big enough for a six-pack. It’s a tough decision, but again, I’m pretty sure there isn’t a wrong answer.

All in all, we just couldn’t be happier with these bikes.

Thanks Steve for sharing such a thorough and all encompassing review. We're thrilled to have you and your wife riding our bikes. -Ryan Zagata

Unique, Stylish, Sturdy, Secure

The Driggs 3 is a great bike so far. I appreciate that it came assembled and that it includes fenders and a rack. I replaced the included rack with a Portland Design Works bamboo rake which goes well with the style of the Driggs. I appreciate the 3-speed gears, I am used to having a fixie Linus bike, so this is a great upgrade. The bike is very comfortable to ride, especially being upright, although bumps are noticeable. The Driggs is great for hauling groceries, I use a Linus single pannier, but it's not an agile or speedy bike, which is fine for my use. Fits my needs and will hopefully hold up!

Minor Cons (which I was aware of prior to purchase): Cannot place a U-Lock within the frame. The bike is pretty heavy, but not unmanageable. I wish it was all black. I would love if the pedals, kickstand, gear, and handle bar and seat-post were all this lovely matte black to match, but I understand why that would be an exceptional ask.

Thank you for sharing such a thorough review Karen. It sounds like you've got your Driggs well dialed in. -Ryan Zagata

I love my Driggs! I wanted a fun bike that could tackle small hills for neighborhood rides. Couldn’t be happier.

It’s PERFECT

This bike was everything I dreamed of, and then some. The matte black is stunning, and the cognac brown handles are not only aesthetically pleasing, but super comfortable as well.
It is even better in person than it was online.
If you’re even considering it, just do it.

Such a good price; great quality.

Thanks for sharing your feedback and the amazing photo. Glad you're enjoying your Driggs. -Ryan Zagata

Integrity

When a company delivers what they promised, and in perfect condition, they must be thanked and applauded.
I couldn’t be happier with my two bicycles and accessories.
Thank you.

Thanks so much for sharing Bill. We appreciate you sharing your experience and we're thrilled you're enjoying your bikes. -Ryan Zagata

Loving it

As someone who hasn't ridden in over 40 years, this bike made for an easy adjustment back into flow of riding. I was nervous at first but thought it best to pull the trigger and let that be my motivation to get back on the horse. The ride is smooth and the seat is comfortable. I'm still learning to turn corners but with practice I'm sure I'll feel more confident. No regrets.

Thanks for sharing Lauren. We're glad you're back out riding. -Ryan Zagata

💕love love our new bikes!!

We waited a year for our new bikes and they were so worth the wait! I have a Willow and my husband has the Driggs 7. The 7 speed is perfect for Florida riding. Danielle was so patient with us throughout the process and kept us updated as we waited for our bikes to be back in stock due to COVID. We love them and would highly recommend them! Love the company and all the accessories we purchased! Thank you ☺️ so much Danielle!!!

Thanks so much for sharing your feedback Cindy. We're thrilled you're enjoying your bikes. -Ryan Zagata

Bedford 3 - Coo

I had been cycling through different bike brands all winter long. Really spinning my wheels about it. Finally, I came across Brooklyn Bicycle Company after a long and tiresome process. I pumped the brakes on buying from another brand and decided to get the Bedford 3. During my first ride, the bike spoke volumes. And not to switch gears, but the staff was incredibly helpful and the buying process smooth - never an uphill battle. Above all else the bike was reasonably priced, even after I adjusted for inflation.

You won’t regret this bike, it’s honestly amazing. I’m actually trying to get my friend to buy one right now, but he prefers unicycles. Yeah, he struggles socially and can’t handle-bars! It’s a vicious cycle.

This is literally the best bike I’ve ever owned.

Shout out to the folks at Silk Road Cycles, you folks are wheelie nice.

Thanks so much for sharing Joseph and for the seemingly futile attempt to get your mate on one of our steeds. We also appreciate you acknowledging the efforts the team puts forth to make sure things go smoothly. -Ryan Zagata

beautiful and functional with a few tweaks!

I love this rack! It looks really sleek on the bike and I get a lot of compliments on it! It's also really sturdy and functional -- however, it does cause the wheel to bend to the side due to the added weight so I also added a spring to the front wheel to keep it from falling over when the basket is installed. With the spring, the bike can stand up on its own with the kickstand. It's been great -- also definitely recommend a bungee cord with it! Have yet to see a higher quality or more aesthetically pleasing rack.

Thanks so much for sharing Kate. As you suggested, we strongly recommend a wheel stabilizer with this as the added weight of front carrier will cause the wheel to turn. You used the term 'bend' but I suspect you meant the wheel will turn when the bike is stationary. Thanks again. -Ryan Zagata
