Superb Overland Prototype

Superb Overland full

We have been working up this Overland frameset for a little while now and finally got in the first prototype. It is currently built up as a 1×10 with a riser bar and trigger shifter. The frame can easily be built up with a front derailleur and drop bars if you want to set it up for cross or gravel. It will easily clear a 700×40 tire or 700×35 plus fenders. It has mounts for fenders and front and rear racks so you could set it up for touring/commuting as well (some mounts are hidden on the inside of the tubes). Like the name suggests it is intended to go the distance over many different terrains, therefor we went with durable and comfortable chromoly steel. This prototype is 4130, but we are on the fence about using columbus steel in the production model. Would you be willing to pay an extra $100 for Columbus Zona over 4130? I know I would! The fork utilizes a large classy crown for all that extra tire clearance. Our plan is to offer this as a frameset and complete. I have already started testing this bike and am looking forward to taking it out on some trails to see how far I can really push it.

Superb Sprint Custom Build for Julie

Julie has been riding a Linus Mixte for awhile and loves it, however she recently told me she would really love a lightweight bike as well to zip around on, and easily carry up and down stairs. She decided to go with a Superb Sprint and was lucky enough to get a one off color in Gold. The end result came out great and she took it for the maiden voyage yesterday all over Boston. We just got in a fresh batch of Sprint frames so stop in to check out the new colors or keep an eye on the blog/online store for photos coming soon.

Superb Sprint Custom Build for Cameron

We recently finished this insane Superb Sprint custom build for Cameron. This is one of those bikes that just leaves you with a loss for words. The details are everywhere and although the mostly black bike is understated the Gold from the Phil Wood Anniversary hubs and the Izumi Super toughness chain pop out in the best way possible. We have had these Gold Plated super limited Phil Wood Hubs in our case for awhile and I was very excited to see them end up on one of our Superb Sprints.

Justin’s Cinelli Mash Histogram Build

Our employee Justin just built up this nice Cinelli Mash Histogram. He wanted something more practical to ride around town than his road racing bike. Justin went with solid components throughout and really nailed the aesthetics as well. Sram Omnium cranks are our favorite go to for durable stiff cranks. The wheels are H+son tb14s laced to our Superb sealed bearing track hubs. The black and white Deda seatpost is a perfect match for the Histogram paint job and the classic silver VO stem and bar match up as well.

Superb now stocking ALL CITY!

We have been selling a decent number of bikes from All City as either completes of custom builds for well over a year now but decided it was time to make some more room on the sales floor to really show off some of our favorite All City models. We won’t always have every model, color, and size in stock. But will try to keep in a good variety and if we don’t have the one you want we can usually get it in within a few days. We currently have the Macho Man, Space Horse, Nature Boy, Thunderdome, and Big Block in stock to check out in person. So swing through to check them out!
