Lorimer

 
 

 
One of our most versatile commuter bikes, the Lorimer features a wide gearing range and puncture-resistant tires for all-day and all-terrain riding, but don’t let this sleek hybrid bike fool you: It’s just as ideal for commuting and running errands as it is for working up a sweat on city streets or bike paths. The ultra-lightweight, double-butted chromoly steel frame delivers a light and smooth ride everywhere life takes you. While similar in design to its sibling the Roebling, the Lorimer sets itself apart with a more compact cockpit and wider saddle.

Lorimer Hybrid -- love, love, love it!

I just bought the Lorimer Hybrid in mint and I love it! I am 5'1", and the small frame is perfect for me. It's very comfy--not to mentioned gorgeous. I definitely recommend it--especially if you are a short person like me!

Thanks so much for sharing Lindsay. We are thrilled you are enjoying your Lorimer. -Ryan Zagata

I love it, so do strangers!

I’ve received many compliments on the bike, a few of my friends took it for a spin. Everyone loves it! Took some getting used to with the thinner tires, used to Mtn. Bike tires.

Thanks so much for sharing Jennifer. We're thrilled you're enjoying your Lorimer. -Ryan Zagata

Nice but disappointed on the logo

I was super excited to receive this bike but it is not identical to the one shown online which is very disappointing because you would think for the price you pay, they would sell you what the website promises. I think the website should be more specific on what you should expect to get if they went under a logo change that is fine but I would have liked to receive the one with the new logo instead I got one that says “BK Lorimer” They also had to switch my bike because they had sold out of the 14/s one, but the website again did not indicate that so I’m pretty disappointed in the small details which I believe are still very important for any paying customer.

Cindy - thanks so much for sharing your feedback. We have emailed you separately. While it is apparent from our emails that you are functionally happy with the bike, we understand your disappointment that the branding on the bike was not identical to the photos. As we had shared, the bike is is functionally identical from a component perspective, we did adjust our branding several months ago and not all models/sizes have seen that new branding work its way into our inventory yet which seems to be the case here. Thanks again for sharing. -Ryan Zagata
