Wheels Your Way: The ‘Cafe Racer S’ Bike by Seven Cycles in Watertown
Want to up your pedal power and stand out from the cycling crowd? Watertownâ€™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 companyâ€™s understated â€śCafĂ© Racer S,â€ť a single-speed steed thatâ€™s nimble and durable for city riding. One thoughtful upgrade is a belt drive, which replaces the chain. Itâ€™s grease-free and makes for a blissfully quiet trip.
