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? 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.
