For Brooklyn Bicycle Co., a bike is a requisite addition to a rich urban lifestyle. Both style and lifestyle—social life, daily commutes, errands—factor into the design of its zippy unisex two-wheelers. Each model, whether step-through or step-over, is designed in-house in Brooklyn, New York and made to reflect the distinctive characteristics of its namesake city: accessible, durable, and original. Serious strides (or, pedals) have been made since the cycle brand was founded in 2011, with the latest season ushering in the addition of single- and seven-speed models (three-speeds are also available), lightweight 4130 Chromoly (alloy) frames, and weather-resistant vegan leather saddles and grips. The street-cycle company sells in over 85 locations in Canada and the United States with distribution now expanded to Europe, Mexico, and Australia—perpetually ready to conquer the next metropolis.
