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...

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...

Minidrome Madness

Minidrome Madness

The other day, Paul Carson, a local frame-builder and teacher, announced a minidrome was completed inside the Artisan's Asylum, a Somerville collective art space. Some of the Cambridge Bicycle crew headed up to check it out armed with a stash of beer and a vintage GT Dyno. The results were beautiful. You can see this wasn't your average Red Bull-chugging minidrome event. Bill's up there rocking our snack bike, a vintage GT Dyno. It's not even broken after this. At the start, it was supposed to...

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...

650c 43cm Fuji Classic Tracks in Stock

Literally just through the door came in Fuji Classic Track in size extra small: 43 cm frame with 650c wheels. Fuji has been out of these bikes for several months, and we've unfortunately had to turn away many customers because of this. We're extra stoked to have them this early in the year. Very limited quantities are produced each season so if you've been waiting to get one, act soon. Pics to come later, when they've been built up.

Fuji Track Classic SE in Stock

Fuji Track Classic SE in Stock

Just minutes ago a few bike boxes landed at our doorstep: the Fuji Track Classic SEFuji Track Classic SE in pearly white. This model is the same as the Fuji Track Classic, only with a 44 cm frame with 650c wheels. The standover height is just over 27" which makes it great for people below average height but still above 5'1" tall (or so). It's designed to take 650c wheels (rather than the larger standard, 700c), in order to make the bike easier to handle with a smaller frame. We have three of...

2010 KHS Flite 100

2010 KHS Flite 100

The KHS Flite 100 has always been a great choice for a sub-$800 track bike, and this year is no exception. With its double-butted chromoly frame, track geometry, metal pedals with toe clips, and super light weight, it's an excellent choice for street and velodrome riding alike. This year it comes in gold, green, and black color options, with a track drop bar, and three-piece front brake. The best part is that it's dropped in price from $660 to only $599! We have a 55 cm currently in stock, and...

They See Me Glowin’, They Hatin’…

They See Me Glowin’, They Hatin’…

It's here: the one of a kind Glow in the dark fixed gear Bike! Almost every component on this track bike is glow-in-the-dark, and as the photo shows, this thing GLOWS BRIGHT. We had everything custom powdercoated with a special glow-in-the-dark powder that not only looks great but is also a much more durable finish than paint. The bike is size 55cm and is for sale for $2000. We can ship it anywhere in the continental USA for $100. Other than all the parts on this bike, we have a very limited...

Volume Cutter Release

Volume Cutter Release

Today Volume released the new run of the Cutter Frame with a few changes. New colors including Bubble Gum, Raw and Flat Black, also the head tubes now feature the speaker logo cut out. I think this might be the first track bike with this feature, which is most prevalent in the BMX world. I think the key to pulling it off will be to paint your steer tube a contrasting color to make it pop.

Cruiser Mountain Track Bike with a Disk Brake

Cruiser Mountain Track Bike with a Disk Brake

I don't know if you could combine any more types of bikes into one unless you were Sheldon Brown himself. But GW has made a rather interesting Bicycle indeed. It started life as a cruiser with mountain bike style 26 inch wheels, but after GW threw down his $50 for it its life changed course. Now sporting 700c track wheels and an extra welded strut near the bottom bracket an Avid Juicy 7 disk brake now resides where normally most people would attach a 22 tooth granny gear. I got to ride this...

you will have to wait patiently….

you will have to wait patiently….

This is what happens when you give someone a good idea to run with. (whats up OBEY!?!) Thanks Fuji for making more bikes we are excited to have around! If you are too distracted by the sick blacked out lugged frame to notice how this crankset alone is worth buying the bike for, you better recognize. And who else aside from paul smith/mercian is shipping a track bike with a brooks saddle?

Summer Omnium Track Racing Series

Riding Track Bikes on the Track!

We have been fortunate enough to make it up to the track in Londonderry NH the past two weeks! So much fun! If you have considered checking out racing your track bike, click here or give us a call to try and ride share. All you need is some dollars, drop bars with tape and end plugs, and a helmet. Also, if you are going to be driving up and have some space available, there are always people looking for a ride. It was great to hear Tony Eberhardt state that he was primarily involved with...

Happy New Year!

We've had a few more Bianchi bikes roll in this past week. The models include the Fremont track bike (carbon fork, aluminum frame, and dual brakes), the Milano internal 8spd, and the San Jose chromo s/s 'cross bike (fixed on the flipside). If you haven't found a good singlespeed or internally geared city bike, come in and we'll give you the tour of our many options. And if you are looking for something that is super affordable, we received a size fill-in on the KHS Brentwood, the most...
