Roebling

 
 

 
One of our most versatile commuter bikes, the Roebling 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 Lorimer, the Roebling sets itself apart with a longer cockpit and sportier, more contoured saddle.

This is what buying a bike online should feel like. (Bonus: The bike is awesome!)

I couldn't be happier with my experience buying from BBC. The owner, Ryan, hopped on a call with me to answer all my questions and calm my fears. The site is so clean and well laid out and the buying experience was nearly perfect. I wish all companies would take this much pride in their customer service.

PS. The Roebling is perfect for what I wanted. Its well built, rides so smooth and is an all around great bike. I definitely recommend going w/ this bike and this company. 10/10 !

Thanks so much for sharing Lou. We always enjoy experiencing our customer's enthusiasm when hunting for a new bike so we are glad you are enjoying your bike. -Ryan Zagata

Great Bike. Great Customer Service.

Couldn't be more happy with the entire process and the bike itself is great, too. The customer service from beginning to end was really impressive. The bike is everything I was hoping for in a cross-functional capacity.

Thanks Reuben - so glad you're enjoying your Roebling. It has been an incredibly popular and well received model for us. -Ryan Zagata

Freedom in the city!

I love this bike. It is my main form of transportation in Seattle, Washington. This the first bike I have bought for myself and I was worried because I did not have the chance to see it before purchase, but I had ridden a Brooklyn before and love the ride. And the payoff has been huge. It is the smoothest ride, climbs those hills with ease, and allows me to travel around the city easily and fast! Thanks Brooklyn.

Hey Patrick - thanks so much for taking the time to share your feedback. The Roebling is my personal favorite model for its versatility and it sounds like you are experiencing the same. Thanks again. -Ryan Zagata

Pretty much perfect

This is a beautiful bike, well equipped, at a great price. I've become a total believer in steel for ordinary (non-racing) riders and rides. We bought this for my wife to replace a heavy aluminum-frame mountain bike — it's so much better for the actual riding she does most days (pavement), while still rugged enough for the small-gravel trail riding we do in the summers. Communication and shipping were great. Local bike shop that assembled the bike did not . . . um . . . excel at that task (front derailleur vertical alignment was off, tires were substantially underinflated, and the owner didn't seem to happy at having "lost a customer" to an online outfit — never mind that he doesn't stock anything in steel at this price). But these were minor issues — we now have a fantastic bike that makes me happy every time I look at it (and that I will be borrowing regularly!).

We are glad you're enjoying the bike Andy. One of the challenges we are always working to overcome is that our last mile of delivery is via an unaffiliated partner and while for the most part that only serves to enhance the experience, on occasion some partners falter and we remove them from our program. That will be the case in this instance. Thanks again for taking the time to review. - Ryan Zagata

Perfect Bike for Me

I can’t say enough good things about my new Roebling. I’ve owned a lot of bikes, road bikes, mountain bikes..including some in the lower four figures and this is my favorite ride. I look forward to riding every day and it’s so comfortable to ride I do to get off. Looks even better than the pics. Buying online was super easy and Ryan was a pleasure to deal with.

Thanks a bunch Chris. So glad you're enjoying your Roebling commuter bike in Florida. -Ryan Zagata
