Shop Visit: The Coffee Trike

Shop Visit: The Coffee Trike

This is San, the entrepreneur behind Boston's The Coffee Trike. You may have seen him around Boston pedaling his custom fixed-gear cargo trike and coffee shop. He happened to be less than a block away when the bond between his chainring and crank failed. He just barely managed to coast to a stop in front of the shop. We only had tools to remove and replace the crank arm, but not re-attach the chainring. Luckily a former employee and local machinist located near our shop happened to have a few...

KHS Green 8

KHS Green 8

Earlier this spring we showcased the new KHS Green 3-speeds for 2013. We have a new addition to our line of city bikes: the KHS Green 8. It uses the same frame geometry as the basic Green, but with a lighter frame made from Reynolds 520 chromoly. The drivetrain uses a more durable crankset and a Shimano Nexus 8 speed hub. It's a practical, lighter upgrade for those who ride longer distances or in hillier areas, or are using the Green as a day tripper as well. Best of all, it's just $769! It's...

Remodling Progress

Remodling Progress

Our shop has come a long way since we first tore down the old mechanics' area just a few weeks ago. Here are some photos from earlier this week of the current state of the shop. It's looking great but we're still not quite done. Our mechanics are still settling into our new service area and our new register counter and displays are being installed shortly, and we have some organization left to finish on our sales floor. Even with what's left to be done, the shop is looking great: We have tons...

Winter Sunsets

Winter Sunsets

The sun's been setting at the very end of Landsdowne Street recently. We've been getting direct sunlight as the sun goes down and the shop's been lighting up like crazy!  It only lasts a few minutes but it's a nice warming glow to distract from all the cold weather we've been getting.

Brooks Pickwick Day Pack Are In

In August we received a pre-production model of a new bag from Brooks, the Pickwick. Our first three Pickwicks are now in stock and they look great!

You can find our Pickwicks hanging above our retail floor and we're always happy to pull one down for you to try out.

Renovation Snapshots

We've been planning it for years, but now it's happening. Over the past few weeks we've been preparing for remodling the entire shop area, and although it's very early in the process, changes have so far been making their mark. We understand that not all of our regular customers or friends have been able to stop by yet so we'll be sharing the story here on our blog. As a refresher, here are a couple views of the front of the shop the way it's been for several years: ...And this is what the...

Bill and his SE Heavy Hitter

Bill and his SE Heavy Hitter

Bill recently ordered himself a 2013 SE Heavy Hitter for his street BMX riding. He's a big guy, hence the "category 2" frame size. He doesn't just hit the streets on his, though, he's been commuting regularly on it - a few miles each way. Not the optimum choice for a commuter bike by most standards but an awesome one for Bill.

Top 100 Retaillers Award for CB!

We're proud to announce that we received a Top 100 Retailer Award for 2012! Thank you for supporting us since 1999. We've come a long way since then and we are more proud than ever to be serving Cambridge and the Boston area.

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...

Head of the Charles: Bicycle Rentals

Head of the Charles: Bicycle Rentals

Every October brings with it the signs of the season changing. Among these is the annual Head of the Charles Regatta, on October 20 and 21. This is one of our biggest weekends for bike rentals, not just because we're conveniently close to the river, but because being on bike allows you to see more of the race. Spectators with bikes are able to move quickly up and down the banks of the Charles, and watch different sections of each race. Needless to say, watching the race on foot and watching it...

Raleigh Cadent 8

Raleigh Cadent 8

We have a few models this year that are brand new for 2012. This is one variation we're super excited about: the Raleigh Cadent 8. We've stocked (and still stock) Raleigh's Cadent aluminum sport hybrid with its standard gear system. What makes the Cadent 8 unique is that in place of a cassette and derailleurs is an 8 speed Shimano Alfine hub. This internally-geared hub is a low-maintenance alternative to a standard drive train, making this a bike that's appropriate for fitness riders,...

Serfas USL-S150

Serfas USL-S150

Having lights to be visible with are an obvious no brainer, but sometimes having a headlight that can light up the road can make the difference between making it home safely or riding without seeing the road. We've been stocking the USL series from Serfas for a couple of years in their standard boxed kit for $80. It's now also in stock in a basic package: Aside from the light and battery, it only comes with a bar mount and USB cable (no wall charger or helmet mount) for only $65. For those who...

Jamis Dragon Team Custom Build

Jamis Dragon Team Custom Build

A couple weeks ago Andrew walked into the shop, and struck up a conversation with our mechanic, Ryan, about mountain biking. Ryan's introduction to cycling was riding cross-country trails as a young'un in rural New England, and has been passionate about the discipline since. They started talking about bikes, with Andrew asking him, "Well, what would you ride?" Many minutes later, the conversation ended with an order the build above.

Due to a new cell phone commercial there's been a huge spike in interest regarding bikes that glow in the dark.
