We recommend sizing down if you're in between sizes. Have a question on sizing? Check our bicycle sizing guide by clicking here.
The MOST IMPORTANT measurement when sizing a bike is your inseam length.
Don't base your inseam simply on your jean size.
The more precise, the better.
1. Stand with your back against a wall and spread your feet 6-8" apart.
2. Place a book between your legs and up against the wall, spine up; raise it until snug against your crotch (this mimics your bike seat).
3. Have another person measure from the top of the book (spine) down to the floor.
Best Urban Fixie
"The Wythe features front and rear brakes on a narrow riser bar, a Selle Royal saddle, and sealed-bearing hubs (essential for all-weather commuting)."
Best Commuter Bikes
"A flip-flop hub takes this from fixie to single-speed with quick-release brakes that make disassembly a snap."
Easy to Buy, Exceptional Service
"By all accounts, buying a Brooklyn online is a pleasant experience."
Why You'll Love It
Comfortable, well made bike. Nice drive,train, great brakes. Pedals are not so good, but most high end racing bikes don’t come with pedals anyways, so no worries.
Received the bike in a very short time after ordering. I had a few questions which were answered very promptly via email. Loved that it was already assembled by my local bike shop and ready to ride when I picked it up. Has been perfect for my mile and a half commute and a few longer trips around town.
I don't think that you can find such a good quality and nimble bike for this price. I stumbled upon Brooklyn Bicycle when looking for a bike for my wife. We were so pleased with the quality of her bike (Franklin) that I figured I'd treat myself too. I'm thoroughly enjoying it.
I was only able to test this bike on my commute to San Francisco a few times before the lockdown, but it's been fun to ride around town to get out of the house while working from home. Overall, it the ride is nimble and solid and handles well in traffic. A little worried about how the skinny tires will handle wet roads and rough pavement. The gearing allows you to quickly get up to speed from a stop, but tops out a little too quickly on even a slight decline.
I eventually was able to tweak the bike to a comfortable state. I immediately replaced the quill stem with one that puts the handle bars in a more upright riding position. I'm just shy of 6' with a 32" pant inseam, and the stock stem on the Large stretched me out uncomfortably far over the handlebars. I also threw on a skinnier seat to replace the large, ugly stock one.
The pedals are low-quality stamped metal affairs that I wish were nicer forged platforms like the ones I have on my Brilliant L Train. Overall, it works well enough for its intended purpose and the core product is solid, but I was hoping for better quality components for the price.
-Smooth-riding, lightweight frame
-Support was quick to reply and answered all of my questions
-Great delivery and assembly process (appreciate Brooklyn supporting local bike shops)
-Low-quality seat, pedals
-Wish it had braze-ons for fenders
-Depending on your size and preferences, aggressive stem angle might be uncomfortable
-Expected more for $500 from an online brand
Thanks so much for sharing Jeff. While we are glad you are getting first-hand experience with how lightweight the Wythe is, we certainly wish you had taken advantage of our concierge program and reached out to us prior to purchasing. Your feedback and the corresponding photo suggest you wanted an upright ride with a wider gearing range and wider tires. Our Bedford model fits the bill exactly and we would have encouraged you to move in that direction and I suspect you'd be more delighted as that's the bike you're describing in your review. Thanks again. -Ryan Zagata
I love my Wythe fixie! Ryan was a huge help in figuring out which size I should get and my local bike shop Zen Cog did a fantastic job of assembling my bike and making sure it was perfect for me before I left the store. The whole process was so easy. I ordered on a Monday and was riding by Saturday. This is the way bike buying should be and I couldn't ask for a more well made bike.
My Wythe bike is something special, a perfect balance between quality and style. This is the first real bike I've bought and I couldn't be more impressed. It has such a smooth, unique feel that makes riding it fun and enjoyable. The staff was incredibly patent and responsive when I asked for some help. I would highly recommend purchasing a Brooklyn Bike.
