Brooklyn Bicycle Co. just announced two, new hybrid bikes made from Chromoly steel: the Roebling and Lorimer. The company makes bicycles prepared for any city adventure, inspired by the streets of Brooklyn.
Each bicycle features 24 speeds provided by a mix of Shimano components, plus Tektro linear-pull brakes and Brooklyn Bicycle Co.’s own Ergo Touring saddle and puncture-resistant 700×32 mm tires. Each bike is ready for front and rear racks and fenders and features quick-release hubs. The Roebling, named for the man who designed the Brooklyn Bridge, weighs 26.75 pounds and is available in black in the following sizes: 15”, 17”, 19”, 21” and 23”.
The Lorimer is the version of the Roebling designed for women. The only difference is the white color, available sizing and a slightly lighter reported weight of 25.5 pounds. Available sizes are 14″, 16″ and 18″.
Each bike retails for $499 and can be purchased direct from Brooklyn Bicycle Co.’s website. When you order, your bike is shipped to a local shop where the cost of professional assembly is covered by your purchase price.
