Keith’s Cinelli MASH Work

Keith’s Cinelli MASH Work

We are absolutely fired up about the chance to build a new 2017 Cinelli MASH Work frame, almost as excited as Keith was about selecting components discerningly and getting the project together.  Lots of choice components here from the old standbys - Thomson stem and seatpost, SRAM omnium cranks,  VP-001 pedals, Panaracer Pasela PT tires - to the more unique: check out the purple anodized Mini...

New Year’s Day Ramble

New Year’s Day Ramble

  I was invited to small group ride on New Year's Day, which ended up being just five of us by the 9:30 rollout. Myself, Sandy, our salesperson Rob, and our new friend Annemarie ventured out to Acton and back for a nearly perfect 50 mile ride. It started with donuts, coffee, and quiet city streets. We scrambled over a frozen Minuteman Trail, eventually leaving it  in favor of sleepy rural...

Cinelli Mash Work Custom Build

Just wrapped up a simply gorgeous custom build with a Cinelli Mash frame.

Surly Wednesday in Stock

Surly Wednesday in Stock

Why not enjoy cycling all season? If you're interested in 12-month cycling, on the road or in the woods, we've got a ton of options for you here. There's nothing quite like the Surly Wednesday pictured above to get you out of your routine any time of the year. Spring's right around the corner, but there's no good reason not to enjoy riding a bike today.

Brandon’s Kazane Rebuild

Brandon’s Kazane Rebuild

Brandon came into the shop recently with a Kazane track frame, a mix of parts, and a mission. We helped him rebuild the bike with a mix of his old  parts and new. Upgrades included a  fork and cockpit  (Cinelli Pepper riser bars, FSA Orbit headset, and a new stem), an awesome Cinelli Unicantor saddle, and sleek pedal assembly (All-city toe cages and leather toe straps on MKS pedals). All other...

Staff Ride Report – NEMBA trails in NH

Staff Ride Report – NEMBA trails in NH

Something amazing about our bike shop is that despite our urbane location, we have a huge interest of mixed-terrain and off-road cycling on staff. What's even more amazing is that Boston is a great city to be in for this kind of riding.  I took a rental-car escape the other day to get out of town and back in the woods and ended up at Pawtuckaway State Park in southern NH - less than an hour and...

Introducing Yuba Bikes

Introducing Yuba Bikes

We stock all sorts of racks and baskets from a variety of brands, but sometimes we all feel like we need something more tailored for heavy duty use. That's why we brought in Yuba. You'll see these longtail cargo bicycles all over Cambridge and Boston, and they're designed from the ground up for practical, everyday utility cycling: Yuba's Boda Boda 8 is a fantastic cargo bike for Cambridge.

Preview of our new caps

Preview of our new caps

We're excited to announce we have an all-new cap coming out soon.  Our friend, the lovely and talented Beverly Hsu, made us a design based on the cityscape surrounding the shop in Cambridge and Boston.  The caps themselves are sublimated and sewed together by Walz Caps in California.  We just received a test run and Valentin was a good sport and modeled one so we could give you a glimpse:  ...

MIPS Helmets are in!

MIPS Helmets are in!

Ever since the technology was first discussed, we've been anticipating having MIPS not just available in the US, but in stock in our shop. We're excited to say that we have four new helmets with this feature: the Savant MIPS, Feather MIPS, Sutton MIPS, and Sonnet MIPS.  What does MIPS do? Basically, it provides a secondary safety measure to prevent concussions and injury from angular rotations...

Stuck Seatposts are No Good!

Stuck Seatposts are No Good!

  Some days are just the pits - like when you go to adjust your saddle height and the thing won't even budge. Above, Pete is attempting to break the bond of corrosion holding a carbon post in an aluminum frame with  the tactical soda - one of the many solvents he's used for this customer's  frame.   If you've gone longer than 4-6 months without treating your seatpost with grease,...

Service Area Spotlight: Custom Wheelbuilding

        Pete and Alex (featured) are two of our primary wheelbuilders on staff.

We frequently offer hand built wheels for heavy-duty commuters, cycle tourists, and road cyclists who need the reliability...

First Look: 2015 Raleigh Tamland 1

First Look: 2015 Raleigh Tamland 1

What, exactly, is the Raleigh Tamland series all about? While some may simply label it as a "gravel/endurance" model, we think of it as much, much more. We like it because it's made with Reynolds 631 frame with a steel fork, outfitted with 11-speed Shimano 105 components, TRP Spyre disc brakes, and is based around 700x40 tire size with room to spare. The Tamland isn't simply a cyclocross bike...

Kryptonite Lightweight Mini-6 Lock

Kryptonite Lightweight Mini-6 Lock

Bike locks are a love/hate relationship. We love them because they keep our bikes from being stolen, but we hate them because usually the stronger they are, the more they weigh. Kryptonite just solved this dilemma with their new Evolution Lite Mini-6 - a strong lock that's easy to carry. Compared to the classic Evolution Mini, the Mini Lite promises the same security while shaving half a pound....

First Look: 2015 Raleigh Roper

First Look: 2015 Raleigh Roper

  Raleigh's Roper cyclocross bike is here for 2015, with a twist.  For 2015 Raleigh ditched drop bars in favor for a 31.8 riser bar with a Shimano Alivio 1x9 drivetrain.  The Roper's frameset has the same tested design: disc brakes, rack and fender eyelets, responsive geometry, and now it's made with Reynolds 525 tubing.  It's fine-tuned as an ideal setup for an all weather, 12-month urban...

Minidrome Madness

Minidrome Madness

The other day, Paul Carson, a local frame-builder and teacher, announced a minidrome was completed inside the Artisan's Asylum, a Somerville collective art space. Some of the Cambridge Bicycle crew headed up to check it out armed with a stash of beer and a vintage GT Dyno. The results were beautiful. You can see this wasn't your average Red Bull-chugging minidrome event. Bill's up there rocking...

Steel Road Rides for Under a Grand: The Jamis Quest

Steel Road Rides for Under a Grand: The Jamis Quest

More and more riders are re-discovering the benefit of quality steel frames. Though aluminum provides a stiffer ride and marginally lighter frames, lots of folks are beginning to realize that shaving a pound off of their bicycle doesn't really mean much when you're carrying 10 pounds of textbooks to class, or a change of shoes and a laptop to the office. We're fond of Jamis, in part, because...

First Look: 2014 Jamis Dragon 29 Sport

First Look: 2014 Jamis Dragon 29 Sport

Nothing starts off the new year like a new bike. We just got our first look at the Jamis Dragon 29 Sport for 2014, and it looks great. Jamis' Dragon line of bikes has a 25 year history and this year's model continues the legacy.  Jamis designed the Dragon Sport 29 with a Reynolds 520 chromoly frame paired with a Rock Shox air coil fork, making this both a durable and comfortable bike.

Bill’s Jamis Dakar AMT – Last Day at Highland

Bill’s Jamis Dakar AMT – Last Day at Highland

Hey everybody it's Bill. A couple Fridays ago I went to Highland Mountainbike Park for their last weekend of the season. The warmer weather melted most of the snow they'd had earlier in the week leaving the trails fabulously muddy. Some of the trails became a real challenge but overall it was a great day for riding. Getting dirty is always part of the fun so everybody was in a great mood. I even...

Brooks Cambium C17 Review

Brooks Cambium C17 Review

Ben here. I just had the pleasure of riding one of the new vegan Brooks Cambium C17 saddles out for a couple days. This is the newest saddle in their lineup and was designed to be the same quality as their other leather saddles, only free of all animal products. I've owned a Brooks B17 and have been riding a Swift for several months, so I was curious to see how the ride compares. I took off my...

First Look: Shimano Claris

First Look: Shimano Claris

You may have heard people talking about Shimano's newest groupset, Claris 2400. This is Shimano's most entry level component with their dual-control shifters, meaning that both shifters are on the break lever themselves (rather than a thumb button on the hood). With improved shifting and a sleek, darker anodized grey, this is a grew new group for anyone looking for a new road bike on a budget....

Chain-Driven Grain Thresher

Chain-Driven Grain Thresher

We just received this awesome e-mail from an MIT student we supplied parts to: Hi, Thank you so much for giving us the bicycle hub for free! It was a crucial mechanical component in our product prototype. I have attached some pictures in this email for you to look at! Our team is currently working on a motorcycled-powered grain threshing and winnowing device for the developing countries. This...

2014 Bianchi Volpe and Lupo

2014 Bianchi Volpe and Lupo

2014 Bianchi Volpes are in! We're excited to have the Volpe in stock in basically every size, and also to announce the new Lupo. If you want to try a variety of riding, you're best off with a Volpe. We love the Volpe because it works as a fantastic commuter, light touring bike, mixed-terrain road bike, winter trainer, and could even be used for cyclocross. The Volpe is made with a steel frame...

Giro Chamber and Republic Shoes

Giro Chamber and Republic Shoes

We just added two casual clipless shoes to our lineup: the Chamber and the Republic by Giro. The Chamber ($160, on the left)  is a sneaker-style shoe for urban riders. It uses a two-bolt cleat pattern (Shimano SPD, Time ATAC, Crank Brother's Eggbeater). It has the sole, durability and look of a skate shoe, only with a stiffer sole for riding. The Republic ($150) is a commuter-friendly  two-bolt...

Employee Bike Profile: Bill’s Jamis

Employee Bike Profile: Bill’s Jamis

Bill's summer project this year was a brand new Jamis AMT all-mountain bike. He's been riding for years, and takes regular trips up to Highland in NH.  He purchased the AMT as a frame, threw on a 2x10 SLX groupset, Rock Shox fork, 26" Mavic Crossmax SX wheelset,  Thomson seatpost, and Continental  tires. Although he spends a lot of time riding on the slopes, you can also find him around on local...

2014 Raleigh Roper

2014 Raleigh Roper

4130 chromoly tubing, Shimano 105 components, and Hayes mechanical disc brakes all make the Roper an awesome choice for all-around use. The Roper stands apart from the crowd as being not just capable, but excelling at a lot of types of riding. We recommend it as a 12-month, rain-or-shine commuter bike, but the Roper is at home in the woods, bike bath, or in your first cyclocross bike. It's a...

Brooks C17 Cambium in Stock

You may have heard of the Brooks Cambium C17 saddle as much as a year ago, when it was first announced by Brooks as a future product.

We have it both colors in the standard length, as well as a slightly...

Orchard Cross ’13

Orchard Cross ’13

This past weekend marked the 2013 edition of Orchard Cross, a cyclocross race through Applecrest Farm Orchards. My friend Paul and I loaded up his Saab at dawn and hit the road for what would be my first race, and only his second. We should really buy a bike rack at some point. After a tired drive filled with dad rock (really the only thing that can keep me awake at 5am), we pulled up, changed,...

First Look: 2014 Jamis Quest Elite

First Look: 2014 Jamis Quest Elite

It seems like the biggest assumption that keeps people from riding road bikes is that they're only for racing, or training for races. Jamis' 2014 Quest Elite a bike that proves this assumption wrong. The Quest stands apart due to its use of race-grade components (Shimano 105, Ritchey wheelset and cockpit) on a Reynolds 631 steel frame and carbon fork, with a more relaxed geometry. The frameset...
