Swobo Accomplice: Review

We started carrying Swobo again this year after a few years hiatus mainly due to how stoked we were about this bike. As you know we carry a lot of fixed gear / single speed models but most of them fall into the “GO FAST” category. We have heard from many customers how they wanted something that could take a serious beating so they wouldn’t have to worry about pot holes or jumping curbs. This new bike from Swobo seemed like a great fit for that specific need so we decided to give it a shot. Well the whole crew here has since thoroughly tested this out and here is what we think.

The bike is a beast. The tires are big and have a decent amount of tread. They really smooth out the irregularities in the road and feel very stable. The only down side to this is a little extra weight and rolling resistance. The frame is heavy duty double butted chromoly with a gusseted headtube for extra strength. The bikes comes with long reach tektro calipers which have a great feel and stop quick, the wheels use high flange hubs with sealed bearing hubs which are sure to give years of maintenance free smooth rolling. Gear ratio is 41×18 in fixed or freewheel which is a little lower than most of the other single speed bikes we carry, but this allows the bike to get up to speed really quickly, however it does limit your top speed a bit.

If you are mainly cruising around town, I don’t think the cons really matter, but seeing as this is a review, I want to go over everything. Complete bike weight on the size 56cm is about 24 lbs.

So to wrap up if you want a do it all city bike that can take a beating, give the Swobo Accomplice a test ride. We have them in stock in green or black for $699.

Superb Group Ride: Sat May 3rd @ Brooklyn Boulders Somerville

Hey everyone. Join us this Saturday May 3rd for an easy group bike ride. Meet up with us at Brooklyn Boulders Climbing Gym in Somerville with your bike ready to ride by 12pm sharp. Feel free to ride what ever bike you want, this is not a fast paced road ride, so your single speed or commuter bike will be fine. The weather forecast looks great and we plan to ride out of the city on the Minute Man Bike path. Ride should total about 20 miles and we should be back in the city by around 2pm at the latest. Make sure to check out the other bike week events going down at BKBS and if you haven’t tried indoor rock climbing I highly recommend it. Its great fun and the BKBS gym is a pretty easy ride from most places in Boston. Address for BKBS is 12A Tyler St, Somerville, MA 02143
