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:   Yup, there's the Mass Ave bridge on the front, and a monster battle on the back.

Service Area Spotlight: Custom Wheelbuilding

Service Area Spotlight: Custom Wheelbuilding

        Pete and Alex (featured) are two of our primary wheelbuilders on staff. A custom, hand built wheel offers a wide array of rim, hub, and spoke choices for either high demand cycling, or for unique projects where a stock rim is just not available. We frequently offer hand built wheels for heavy-duty commuters, cycle tourists, and road cyclists who need the reliability and strength that only a professionally built wheel can offer. While we do offer an extensive...

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. At just 1.65 pounds, it's easier to carry than most other u-locks without compromising your bike's...

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 Swift and installed the Cambium. The profile between the two are very similar, and my seatpost height...

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.

Ilumenox Nano Brake Light

Ilumenox Nano Brake Light

Sometimes is the simple things that can make a huge impact. We just had our minds blown by the Ilumenox Nano, a $12 light designed to alert other cyclists when you're applying your brakes. The Nano mounts directly to your brake line and uses a spring clip that turns on the light as the brake lever is pulled.  It's quick and easy to attach to most cable-actuated rim brake.

Ben’s Antique B17

Ben’s Antique B17

Ben recently got his hands on an antique Brooks B17 standard saddle. Our guess is that it's from the mid-to-late 1970's. He's been commuting with it on his Bianchi Volpe. What's really cool is that it's basically the same as the modern Brooks B17 Standard since Brooks has been using the same mold, shape, and materials with this model for decades. Pictured below are the same details on a modern B17 standard from our display case for comparison. ...Other than the plate on the back and the color...

Linus, Brooks, and Peterboro Baskets

Linus, Brooks, and Peterboro Baskets

That's why we have more accessories in stock from Peterboro Baskets, Linus Bikes, and Brooks England in stock this season. We have an entire section of the shop dedicated to these timeless, classic accessories that are as durable as they are keenly designed. Linus' bags and racks have been a real...

Linus Dutchi 3 with Peterboro Basket

Linus Dutchi 3 with Peterboro Basket

We had a customer in recently who purchased a Linus Dutchi 3 with us. We had one in stock at Superb, so she went out and bought a skateboard just to run over to the other shop during the sunny summer weather we were having. We saw her back in later that day to pick up one of our Peterboro Baskets to maximize the cruiseability of her new bicycle and augment her cargo capacity - what a combo!
