We’ve got a new electric folding bike in the shop! Check out the Jetty by FiField.
Designed for the open road and narrow storage space, the jetty is the perfectly adaptable transporter. Powered by a 250-watt motor, this little mover jets you around town and folds down to a compact size.
This great folder uses a 7-speed shimano tourney external gearing and mechanic disc brakes. The Jetty is powered by a 36V/7Ah Lithium battery, has a max speed of 20mph and a range of 28-38 miles. The bike also includes front and rear lights, bell and a rear carrying rack. Sizing is easy as the Jetty comes with 15-inch adjustable seat. All for just $1,495!
Call 617 244-1040 for more info or stop by for a test ride today!

Easy Peasy!

My wife and I attended the 8th World Championship in London in 2013, and I, the 1st US Championship in Philadelphia prior to that. It’s hardly possible to describe how well organized and and fun these events are. Mark your calendars and make it if you can. You won’t regret it!
New in the shop this summer, Momentum Bikes! These modern lifestyle bikes are tons of fun and easy to ride.
The fast-rolling 700c wheels and lightweight ALUXX aluminum frame gives this all-new bike confident, easy-to maneuver handling when you’re zipping through crowded city streets. And the upright positioning offers heads-up visibility so you’re always in control. The classic styling is combined with up to date functionality, including smart integrated features such as a built-in cupholder, a chain guard to protect your clothes from dirt and grime, and a rear rack to carry cargo.
All for just $425. Stop by the shop for a test ride today!
We’ve got a peloTON of bikes on sale this month at the Harris Cyclery! (sorry bad TDF joke)

These stylish, versatile bicycles are 100% made in the USA. Their 4130 chromoly steel construction makes them strong, durable and comfortable to ride.

Almost all of our Raleigh bikes are now on clearance. If you are looking for a comfortable ride the Circa and Venture now start at just $350.
We’ve also got Raleigh mountain bikes on sale. The 2015 Talus and Eva are now $600, marked down from $750. These models feature 27.5″ wheels and an adjustable SR Suntour XCT 100mm fork.

Brompton has just announced a series of events across the country and beyond called the Brompton Urban Challenge. These are events to test your skill, creativity and ingenuity through a variety of fun and exciting challenges.
Bromptons are encouraged, but all bikes are welcome. More information and registration information is here on their web site. It looks like great fun!
The closest to Boston will happen in New York City on Sunday, August 16. I am planning on being there, and hope to see other Bromptoneers from the Boston area.
Pre-owned Bromptons are about as common as snow balls in July (even after the seemingly-endless Boston winter of 2015). Miraculously, we have had two in-house, and they quickly went to good homes!
They have standard 6-speed gearing for any terrain, fenders, rear rack, front luggage carrier block, Eazy wheels, frame-mounted pump and cushy aftermarket saddles. A standard issue Brompton saddle can be substituted at no extra cost. The bike above is an M6R.
This is a P6R. Both bikes have similar builds with the exception of the bars.
These bikes are pristine. Somebody saved a bundle on a barely-used used Brommie!
Keep an eye on our blog. We’ll post more Brompton news as it happens!
Email Elton for further information or to arrange a purchase of a new Brompton from stock or by special order.
The Linus’ Rambler 7 is a very comfortable, no-fuss ride that’s up-right and relaxed, but with plenty of speed when you want it. The tough steel frame damps vibration so you stay comfortable all ride long. It features an easy-to-use seven-speed drive train so you can focus on the scenery along the Greenway and still have that easy gear for the last hill before home. Big 700c wheels roll smoothly even over the pavement chatter on your commute to work, and the full-wrap fenders defend you from the splashy slop on those not-so-sunny days. Currently we have this bike available in black or burgundy in a 21″ or 18″ frame.
Next up, the Linus Roadster Sport evokes the simple elegance of quiet French roads from cycling’s golden era: warm light, crisp air, and the exhilaration of a trip made on two wheels. The Roadster’s beautiful steel frame is fitted with a 3-speed internal Nexus rear hub for smooth gear changes that make easy work of hills. This stately ride comes equipped with a rear rack, fenders, and a kickstand—everything you need to run to work or the store, always with a rakish grin and dry pant cuffs. The light aluminium wheels are wrapped in wide, versatile tires while the comfy saddle and genuine leather grips look as good as they feel. Currently we have this bike available in navy in 21″ and 18″ frames or black in a 21″ frame.
Last but not the least the Linus Roadster 8 offers the same great ride quality as the Roadster Sport but with an extended range of gears. This classic bicycle will surely keep you smiling for miles and miles. We have this model available in olive or grey in a 21″ and 18″ frame size. And also in blue in a 18″ frame.
Shop us online or call us at 617 244-1040 for more info. This offer applies only to models currently in stock and cannot be extended to special orders. $50 gift certificate cannot be applied to the purchase of the bike.
