Best Bike For Your Buck

If I could give my Brooklyn bicycle 6 stars, I would. Wait... I will! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Alison B. (Hoboken, US)

It’s been less than a day since having my ivory 3 speed Franklin and I am beyond obsessed! The back fender was damaged during shipping but the bike shop reached out to the company immediately and they will address it with no issue. I took it for a spin and I love it so much! Can’t wait to keep riding’

Thanks for sharing your feedback Alison and thanks for giving us a chance to address the minor shipping issue. We are so glad to hear you're enjoying your bike. -Ryan Zagata

Angelina Barnes
Beautiful, Smooth, Convenient

Love my new bike! It’s not only beautiful and comfortable but a very smooth ride. The ordering process was so easy. Having it shipped to a local bike shop for assembly was seamless and so convenient. I can’t wait to explore.

Thanks Angelina. We are glad to learn the process was easy for you. Thank you for sharing the photo also. -Ryan Zagata

Pretty Bike

Very cool bike! My Wife loves it. I wish I would have known about the clicking sound the 3-speed internal hub makes- (it's totally normal according to Shimano, just unexpected).

Thank you for sharing. As we shared previously, the internally geared hubs are a bit chatty by design. There is a lot of engineering that goes into getting all of these gears stuffed into a rear hub. -Ryan Zagata

Caleb Carr (Washington, US)
Great Ride for Chronic Pain User

I have issues with chronic pain in my lower back from an old injury and this bike's upright orientation feels great. Been on a few rides and have felt really good after.
The customer support is also really great - when UPS lost my commuter bundle, Brooklyn Bikes sent me a new one within a couple days free of charge!

Thanks Caleb. It's refreshing to learn that our Franklin 3 is able to accommodate you with your lower back pain. Thanks for sharing your feedback. -Ryan Zagata

So far so good.

It’s difficult to find a good three speed internal hub upright bicycle with fenders. This one seems pretty solid. I decided to go with a step through because I’m tired of hiking my leg over the seat.
The factory handgrips are real attractive but become dangerously slippery in the rain… so I replaced them on day one.
Thank you Brooklyn Bicycle Co for creative this handsome bike. We also bought a crème colored one for our son.

We appreciate you sharing your feedback Michael and we're glad you're enjoying your new bike. -Ryan Zagata
