Wheels Your Way: The ‘Cafe Racer S’ Bike by Seven Cycles in Watertown

By | Boston Magazine |

Want to up your pedal power and stand out from the cycling crowd? Watertown’s Seven Cycles will forge, weld, and paint a custom frame to your specifications before shipping it off to a retailer, who will trick it out with the components of your choice. Commuters should consider the company’s understated “Café Racer S,” a single-speed steed that’s nimble and durable for city riding. One thoughtful upgrade is a belt drive, which replaces the chain. It’s grease-free and makes for a blissfully quiet trip.

“Café Racer S” titanium bike, starting at $3,700 ($6,800 as shown), 617-923-7774, sevencycles.com.
