Comfortable, reliable, and stylish. What more can you ask for?

Our essential city bike is a fan favorite for getting around town without working up a sweat. Stylish and utilitarian, the Franklin 8 enables riders of all stripes to simply hop on and go. The step-through frame and color-matched fenders ensure easy-riding sans wardrobe restrictions, while the lightweight design makes for smooth travel from brunch, to the office, and everywhere in between. With a wide range 8-speed drivetrain and puncture-resistant tires allowing you to conquer varied terrain, this bike is as versatile as it is stylish.

Why You'll Love It

Easy on. Easy off.
The step-through geometry of the Franklin lets you hop on and off your bike with ease. No more awkward leaning or stretches to get on your bike. Just step right through, and off you go.

Ready to get you there
The Franklin 8 offers a wider gearing range than its 3-speed counterpart. That means it's easier to pedal uphill, and easier to gain speed moving downhill. Perfect for longer distance, hilly rides.
