For moderately hilly areas with minimal maintenance
For easy riding with no wardrobe restrictions, Franklin's frame provides a light, yet absorbent ride
For all-terrain, no worry riding
I love the look of this bike, it's vintage looking but still modern! All in all just a wonderful 7 speed bike that gets me around the city in style!
I had not expected to fall in love with it right away.
After all, I am sentimentally attached to my Giant mountain bike of 18 years.
After being helped by almost everyone who works at the North Park Bike store,
over the course of three visits, I have to say thank you so much to everyone
who helped get me to this point.
It all started with my bike being stolen.
I was heart broken to think someone may dispose of it.
I had ridden plenty of trails…it traveled everywhere with me.
When I emailed a few shops to ask to watch out for it,
Christine sent an encouraging note and direction to post to
the Stolen Bike Avengers Facebook group,
report to police, and check out a few areas (that were new to me).
Well, the bike was recovered with two days…it was in good shape.
I had been hesitant to buy a new bike, but it was getting increasingly difficult
to get over the cross bar of my Giant. I have a bad leg due to MS.
I have struggled to keep cycling over the last 10 years.
But I LOVE to ride.
Today, when I left the shop, I thought I might just ride home and that would be
a typical ride for me.
I loved ride so much - rode all over Fairfield, James Bay, along Dallas Rd. to Clover Point,
all the while pedaling, but feeling like I could go for hours!!!
This is truly amazing!
It was like being little kid (with new kitted bike) all over again!
Thank you all very much for the great joy you have brought to me today!!!!
I received my Franklin 3 about a week ago and cannot be more than satisfied with this purchase. This bike is gorgeous in person. Pictures online do not do it justice. It rides smoothly and I'm loving every aspect of it. Thank you!
I love my bike. It is extremely well made and I know it will last a lifetime. This company definitely knows how to create a positive customer experience -- I received lots of communication pre-arrival, and the pickup was seamless. I'm 5'6" and really glad I ordered the small because I sit a little higher on the bike and in a slightly more defensive position which makes it easier to go up hills in Denver. I think had I ordered the next size up, I would've been too big. I would recommend this bike and this company to anyone! -Emily
I ordered the bike a few days before the 4th of July. It was easy; I didn't have to worry about buying a kickstand or other expected items that can be sold separately. I paid for delivery to my door. A couple weeks later, I got a phone call and email from Ryan telling me the bike was ready. I was pumped, I quickly fired back a delivery time. It didn't work. So I got cranky with Ryan. To his credit, Ryan kept exploring options and found an evening delivery time that week! It was at this time that I realized Ryan is the president of the company and was personally bringing the bike. We had an amazing chat and he walked me through the features. I've been riding the bike everyday for about 3-5 miles, nothing serious. I really enjoy it! It easily makes it up hills I'm not fit enough to walk up, it's really fun on the flats. Its easy enough to lock up while doing errands. I'm thrilled with my bike!
