Steve’s Superb Sprint

We built up a Superb Sprint for Steve over a year ago. He has been getting a lot of use out of it and personalizing it a bit along the way. Last month he decided to upgrade the wheels. We built these Phil Wood Anniversary 3.5 purple hubs to Hed rims and they look amazing on the bike. Steve sent us over these photos and they are great, check it out! If you are interested in a custom build hit us up!

Group Bike Ride w/ Without Walls

We will be joining Without Walls for a group bike ride this Thursday from 6pm-8pm. Come by their location in Harvard Square, Cambridge to join in the fun. From 6pm-7pm hang out, eat and drink refreshments from Neuro and Health warrior, and we’ll be there to give bikes a quick safety tune. At 7pm we will be leaving on a easy group ride around the Cambridge area, should be back in Harvard Square by 8pm. Any and all bikes and rider levels are welcome just be sure to dress appropriately and remember your lights! If you don’t have lights yet stop by Superb before the ride to pick a set up, they start as little as $10 per light. If a car/truck/bus can’t see you, then they can’t avoid hitting you!! We also have a large selection of winter riding apparel: Jackets, gloves, pants, hats, from Swrve, Chrome, Levis, Craft, Giro… come check it out!

Also of note we will be closing the shop at 5:30 pm to ride over. See you there!

It’s Not Funny Anymore

When my friend Mark Phinney asked asked me to be the bike consultant on his new film It’s Not Funny Anymore I jumped at the chance. Now I’m stoked to say that not only will I be working with the lead actor on his riding, but Superb Bicycle will also be a filming location AND the main character will be rolling around Boston on one of our Superb Sprint frames.

A bit more about the film:

A stand up comic has to decide if he can keep performing material based on his own life issues. Set in the comedy world, It’s Not Funny Anymore is about mental illness in creative people who have to decide if self sabotage for art is worth doing it.

Currently It’s Not Funny Anymore is in Kickstarter mode. You can learn more about Mark and the project and if so inclined make a donation here. Follow along with the film on Facebook and Twitter and we’ll be sure to keep you all updated on the progress and filming!
