Comfortable. Reliable. 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 3 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 low-maintenance 3-speed internally geared hub and puncture-resistant tires allowing you to conquer varied terrain, this bike is as versatile as it is stylish.
Easy on. Easy off.
The step through geometry of the Franklin lets you hop on and off your bike with ease. No more awkward stretching to get on your bike. Just step right through, and off you go.
Relibility, first and foremost
The Franklin 3 speed's internally geared hub eliminates the moving parts of a traditional drive train. That means smoother more reliable shifting, fewer tune ups, and more riding.
