Custom Build Contest


We’ve done quite a few custom builds over the years. We’ve built up Cinelli Parallaxes, All-City Big Blocks, our Superb Sprint & Vivace frames and everything in between. As a shop it’s one of our favorite things to do – building your dream bike. Now we want to revisit that dream of yours AND make it a bit dreamier. Here’s how it’s going to work:

That’s it. In return you’ll be entered to win the following:

  • FIRST PLACE - Izumi Super Toughness Track Chain, EAI Standard Track Cog and Superb Wool Watch Cap
  • RUNNER-UP (Two Selected) - Superb Camo Cycling Cap & All City Stainless Steel Track Cog



We all know you love taking pictures of your bike – share those pictures with us and you could be getting a sweet drivetrain upgrade. All winners will be selected at RANDOM so throw your hat in the ring and see what happens.

Superb Bikes Ready for Roller Racing

Superb Sprint and Prototype

As you have seen from our previous post we are helping Without Walls with their launch party tomorrow by setting up some Superb Bikes for roller racing. One is our new Black and Teal Sprint with a selection of great parts from Thomson, H+Son, Izumi, and Fizik.

The second bike is our Prototype Hellenic Style track bike, which we will be putting into production next spring (with some minor tweaks). If you want to see it in person or race on either of these bikes, swing on through the Without Walls launch party tomorrow in Harvard Square from 6pm-9pm. We will also be giving out some Superb prizes to the winners.

Brooks England C17 and C15 Saddles

The Brooks Cambium Line is growing due to its huge success! We have had the Brooks Cambium in the shop for about a year now and the overall response has been tremendously positive. Both Doug and I have been riding the C17 all summer and have become true converts.

We had a visit yesterday from Tony and Jason from Brooks to show us some of the new saddles about to hit the market and it looks great! The new Cambium C15 is just a racier cut version of the C17 for those who prefer narrower saddles for more performance oriented bikes. New colors of Black and Rust are also spot on and will definitely suit many different styles of bikes.

Sneak peek below, expect to see these to join our selection of C17 saddles very soon.

“Brooks Cambium is a range of saddles made from vulcanized natural rubber and organic cotton canvas enhanced by a thin layer of structural textile for added resilience and legendary Brooks longevity. The uniquely flexible, maintenance-free, waterproof top is designed to follow the rider’s movements to deliver immediate comfort and ease of use.” -Brooks England

Swobo Sanchez and Accomplice: Now in Stock

We are super stoked to have Swobo Bikes on the sales floor. We are currently stocking 2 models, the Sanchez and the Accomplice.

The Swobo Sanchez is a fast, durable, sexy, fixed or single speed ready to hit the streets. The frame is a nicely spec butted Chromoly that is tig welded. Like all Swobos they are mostly assembled in Colorado with the final assembly and tuning happening here in Boston. The parts spec is pretty impressive for the low price tag of $550. Sealed bearings all around and Velocity Deep V rims!! Yeah its got that!

You can think of the Swobo Accomplice as the Sanchez evil Brother. It’s basically the same bike, but with a chainring bash guard and extra tire clearance to be able to run some seriously big rubber. Wanna launch curbs? Blast down dirt paths? Not worry about pot holes? Then the Accomplice is your ride. And at also only $550 you can’t go wrong!
