Happy Birthday, Samantha

Happy Birthday, Samantha

Yesterday a customer Samantha came in and picked up a new bike for her birthday. She chose a 2010 Fuji Feather, and then outfitted it with SKS Race Blade fenders, a set of Planet Bike Blaze and Superflash lights, and Nitto cruiser bars! The bike already came with a front brake, but everything Samantha chose made this one of the most proper and good-looking bikes to roll out of the shop. Add a silver Crane Bell and it'd be the perfect city fixed-gear bike. Talk about a great gift!

Farewell, Mr. Bottomley

Farewell, Mr. Bottomley

Sadly enough, our mechanic Rob is leaving us for the winter months for greener pastures. Today's his last day in the shop. To celebrate he took the Big Ripper out for a spin.

N. Harvard Street finally getting a makeover

N. Harvard Street finally getting a makeover

Ok, so it's not quite as bad as this picture...yet. But we all know that the section of North Harvard St. by Harvard Stadium is in dire need of some big-time repairs. I used to loath that route like nothing else when I had to take it to and from my old job every day: bumpy as hell, cars parked on both sides, the godforsaken 66(6) bus nearly running me off the road. So, I'm excited to report that the city has finally taken note of this deathtrap and drawn up reconstruction plans. According to...

Natalie “Customer of the Month”!!!

I decided it's time to show some love to the customers that have been behind us in everything that we do here at Cambridge Bicycle, and when I was thinking about this, one of our newer customers popped into mind: Natalie. The first time I met Natalie she stopped in to pick up a few parts for a bike she was building. She then stopped back a few days later--with the bike--to get some parts installed. We chatted and I invited her to the Freddy Vs. Jason Race. Well, she showed up to the race on...

Riding a specially prepared bike from the Manchester Police Athletic League and wearing high-tech fabrics donated by MIT Cycling, Matt went 3:09 for the mile, setting a new record for his age category. While the crowd cheered him on, Matthew repeatedly got out of the saddle to power through the windy back straight and kept on a consistent schedule throughout the 5 lap effort....
