New CB Bottles and Caps

New CB Bottles and Caps

We like you, do you like us? We've got new goodies for the fans. We're fully stocked on Cambridge Bicycle caps in a new colorway - by local designer Beverly Hsu and made by Walz Caps in California. The caps look great on the Cinelli Gazetta Della Strada above, but  we think they'd look even better on you. For your hydration needs we have new Purist bottles with our classic 2010 logo on it.  Quality bottles with a quality brand! We recently re-upped American Apparel shirts with the same logo on...

Introducing Endura Clothing

Introducing Endura Clothing

Our brand new clothing display is brimming with winter and spring apparel. We have options for women and men by Endura including waterproof hardshells, socks and gloves, helmet liners, and their BaaBaa merino wool baselayers.

Between our wide selection of clothes and our overhauled and reopened changing room, we're more stocked than ever to help you get comfortable on your 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. At just 1.65 pounds, it's easier to carry than most other u-locks without compromising your bike's...

Here's a quick rundown: The jackets we have are Path Gore-Tex in a men's cut ($199), and Oxygen Gore-Tex Active in a ladies' cut ($230). Both are made with Gore-Tex, meaning they're waterproof, breathable, and incredibly durable (and stain resistant!). These are perfect...

Handsome Cycles Devil Complete

Handsome Cycles Devil Complete

Last week we profiled the 2013 Handsome Cycles She Devil complete. Since then we built up a Devil complete and took some great photos to share: Like the She Devil, the Devil complete is a commuter, day tripper, or light touring bike for those who don't need a heavy bike for fully loaded touring, or a cyclocross race bike for general rides. We like the way it's set up - upright posture, comfy saddle, flat pedals, and a wheelset with Mavic Open Sport rims and Shimano Deore hubs - but with a...

Girls of Giovanni’s model new CB Team cap!

Girls of Giovanni’s model new CB Team cap!

Alyssa, Ashley, and Laura @ Giovanni's Pizza show off the new CB Team cap. Each Wednesday on our way back from racing at the New England Velodrome, we stop into Giovanni's Pizza for our post-race recovery meal. They have a killer roast beef sandwich and stock an amazing all-natural whoopie pie, but we really go there for the friendly (read: super cute) staff. They remembered us from last track season and have come to expect us each week, but I think we are still a bit of a novelty for them....

Another Day, Another Shipment

Another Day, Another Shipment

As the cycling season has come into full swing so has the number of shipments we have been receiving. It seems like every weekday we get multiple shipments of goods to keep the Boston and Cambridge cyclists on their bikes. Yesterday one of our favorite local celebrity cyclists had stopped in at about the time one of our shipments rolled in and jumped right in helping to unload the truck. She can be seen here in the back ground, with Pete in the foreground. Recognize her yet? Well here is a...

FINALLY…Vittoria 1976

FINALLY…Vittoria 1976

So finally someone has stepped up and made a somewhat decent looking SPD compatible shoe that is comfortable to wear on and off the bike. Vittoria has basically reissued an old shoe from the 70's with newer features to allow it to be SPD compatible and still very walkable. The shoes will be coming in a wide range of colors and apparently are only for fixed gear riders, however, word is they work on geared bikes as well. I am still waiting for SPD compatible Reebok Pumps, but I am not holding...

Mavic Avenir Road Shoe Review by Croth

Mavic Avenir Road Shoe Review by Croth

Cambridge Bikes recently got a big shipment of Mavic shoes, and I was lucky enough to get ahold of a pair to try out. I chose the Avenir model because they will look hot with the new CB race kits, due in any day now. Here's my experience so far: Last year I raced with the Adidas Adistar Road Pro, which were made by the same company (Salomon) that owns Mavic. Mavic now makes the Road Pro model, with a price in the $250 range, but the Avenir that I'm wearing is a lower end model, costing only...

Hats as canvas

Hats as canvas

I ran into this tough guy on River Street and his modified/dyed CB hat caught my eye. His name is Kit and if you run into him tell him that Kip wants to give him a new CB hat of his choice. We've currently got two different models in the shop, and a new top-secret one is boxed up in some crazy factory in China or somewhere.... See you soon Kit!

Found in the Basement: Fat City Cycles cap

Found in the Basement: Fat City Cycles cap

New England has a rich mountain bike heritage. Fat City Cycles was one of the first New England MTB-specific frame builders. Many of its former employees went on to start their own companies, Independent Fabrication amongst them. Last night, I was lucky enough to have dinner with legendary framebuilder and title sponsor of the Cambridge Bicycle racing team Christopher Igleheart who was a welder at Fat City. This priceless cap was just sitting in his shop among the many other pieces of eye...

Found in the Basement: Saeco Cap

Found in the Basement: Saeco Cap

Mario Cipollini represents all that is awesome about Italian pro cyclists. Mario is a superstar and he knows it. One part super sprinter, one part Italian model, one part greaseball. I beleive that the latter two traits enhance the former. Cipo defines flamboyance: at home on the podium or with a bevy of surgically enhanced models. Recently, my teammate Natalia reminded me about Cipo's sprint and the next day I ran across this Saeco cap in the basement. As many of you know, Cipo and Saeco...

Found In The Basement–Disgraced Teams’ Caps!!

Found In The Basement–Disgraced Teams’ Caps!!

Everyone loves a scandal. In cycling that means doping and cheating. Festina was a great team. The team's soigneur was pulled over and caught with 250 vials of EPO and steroids. Further investigation revealed that systematic doping was behind Festina's success. The 1998 "Festina Affair" exposed widespread systematic doping in cycling. TVM was one of the first other teams to be implicated. I love memorabilia from disgraced and/or defunct organizations. RMM

Miko Jersey

Miko Jersey

I like hanging out in bike shops. I especially enjoy the vintage cycling gear that any good shop has in abundance: team clothing, componentry, bicycles, yellowing pictures of long retired champions. This Miko jersey caught my eye today. I don't even know what the Miko team was, but they had a sweet jersey. I wish that it fit me... RMM

Bag king in shop!

This week we were graced by the presence of John Bailey of Baileyworks. Not only has he made some cool suit patterned bags for us, but we got a sneak peak at whats on the horizon for Bailey Bags. Thanks for allowing us the chance to talk your ear off John! Other happenings this week: we received a fill-in of Gore Bike Wear sizes, and had a preview of the 07 F/W line of offerings. Thanks go out to both Tom and Jay for highlighting what makes this line of cycling apparel so great.

Adidas shoes are now in stock

We received our first shipment of Adidas road shoes today, and they look sweet!

If you haven't yet been exposed to the benefits of a dedicated cycling shoe, come in and talk to one of us about how this small upgrade to your bike can translate into more on the bike comfort and better power transfer.

New Gore Bike Wear Product!

Hey ya'll- its been a week since we got our first shipment of Gore Bike Wear (a division of Gore-tex, so you know its legit) and we can barely keep it in stock! So we are going to double our jacket offerings and bring in a few more cold weather accessories. They are the authority for waterproof apparel and the WindStopper membrane is in most of my foul weather apparel; i'm in love. The best thing about them is the price, not Assos territory, but not too much more than Pearl Izumi. If you...
