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 Moto brakes, matching Wolf Tooth headset spacer.   He selected a set of lightweight fenders made for...

Cinelli Mash Work Custom Build

Cinelli Mash Work Custom Build

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

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 parts were spit-shined to perfection before install. He worked with us to make sure his project was...

KHS Green 1

KHS Green 1

This year has been exciting for classic style city bikes. We've introduced the KHS Green 8 and the KHS Green 3 earlier this summer. We have one new addition to our commuter bike lineup: the Green 1 single speed. It's the same steel frame and general parts kit as the Green 3, only with a single speed wheel. No coaster brake, either: the Green 1 has front and rear v-brakes. We can see this being an awesome beater bike for those with much nicer bikes, or an excellent low-maintenance workhorse for...

2013 SE Tripel

2013 SE Tripel

Classic 3-Speeds, such as our Linus, KHS, and Raleigh models, have always been a staple bike here at CB. 2013 is bringing about a new kind of bike with our brands: the urban 3-speed. You've probably already seen the Raleigh Tripper we've had in stock. We now have a new model from SE Bikes called the Tripel:

Goodbye, Elyse!

Goodbye, Elyse!

Our beloved salesperson Elyse has moved back home to the midwest. She was determined to get her vintage Schwinn road bike rebuilt into an awesome single speed commuter (complete with front basket and sparkle grips!) right before loading the moving van. Good luck out there, Elyse!

SE Bikes Size Update

SE Bikes Size Update

2013 is right around the corner, and this means we have very limited sizes of 2012 models in stock. Normally, this is great news but we have received a heads up from SE Bikes that they have adjusted the sizing for their single speed city bikes for next season. This means that their Draft Lite and Lager models will unfortunately no longer be available in a size 47 CM for 2013. This means that for those who can't ride a 49 cm safely or fit comfortably on a 43 cm, now is the time to pick up a new...

This new batch retains all of the qualities of past Volpe versions: Tiagra 10-speed drivetrain, triple crankset, double butted cro-mo frameset, rack and fender eyelets galore.

Glow Bike Details

Glow Bike Details

Due to a new cell phone commercial there's been a huge spike in interest regarding bikes that glow in the dark. We've been fielding a lot of questions regarding the bike pictured above.  Our glow bike project from a few years ago has been making its rounds on the internet since the day we completed it. We do not have any stock bicycles available for sale with this kind of paint: this bike was a custom build involving parts that were custom powdercoated with a glow-in-the-dark pigment. Superb...

Employee Bike Profile: Dan’s Miayata

Employee Bike Profile: Dan’s Miayata

Just like pictures, bicycles are worth a thousand words. Dan's Miyata, however; is worthy of it's own Homeric epic. He dumpstered this frame, which was once a 1980's chromoly road bike with Shimano 600 parts, and quickly stripped it. It's been built and re-built several times; changed ownership at least three times; and was once literally dragged behind a car to New Jersey by a previous owner. This bike has been a fixed gear, single-ring road bike, and currently is a dedicated single speed....
