With the holidays just around the corner, we've put together a series buyers guides to help you buy for the special cyclist in your life. In our first edition, we hand picked some incredible pieces for the bike loving lady in your life. We pride ourselves on the selecting gear that works on the bike as well as off and this guide clearly emphasizes how multi-functional your bike gear can be. But we can't forget some of the unique accessories for that two-wheeled steed and we think we picked some stocking "crushers".Read More
In this edition, we bring you some incredible gift ideas for the "guy who has everything". With winter on the way we picked some options that will be great for cruising through the city, riding the local bike trails or ripping it up at Ray's. And don't forget, our Never Mind the Winter Sale is still happening, so there are plenty of savings to be had.Read More
Yup - just dropped a mad LOR reference. Shout out. As the weather becomes more favorable for many riders, we've seen a heightened interest in commuting and local trip cycling. The one question we are most commonly asked is how to carry stuff. Lucky for most, we have a great selection of bags to hang on your bike or yourself.Read More

We love urban cruisers. When we were in the planning stages of Beat (ideas to napkin) we knew we wanted to partner with a bicycle brand that found the perfect balance of style and function. In the late winter last year, the dustiest part of our build out, we sealed our relationship with Brooklyn Bicycle Co. with a virtual high five. Their perfect blend of ride quality, comfort and aesthetic captured the hearts of cyclists in Lakewood, Cleveland and beyond. When we were sketching the plans for 2015 (more napkins) we wanted to find another an additional brand to add to our expanding urban cruiser category and after some searching we found another great match, Simcoe Bicycles.
Simcoe brings a fit and style all their own while providing the functionality and fun we look for in all of the products we choose. Options range from single speeds with full coverage fenders to internally geared 7 speeds with fenders, rear racks and Brooks saddles. Side note, all geared models come equipped with Shimano Nexus hubs for smooth shifting and little maintenance. We're certain you'll love them as much as we do. In fact, our urban cruisers are guaranteed to make anyone develop and overwhelming desire to drink bordeaux and listen to Billie Holiday.
In stock now : Classic Step Through in Burgundy and Yellow (pictured below).
A BICYCLE FOR NORTH AMERICA
Simcoe bicycles draw inspiration from a forgotten era of North American cycling. They are a product of both experience and necessity, built for the cold of the northeast and the boardwalks of the southwest. A story lies behind every angle, creating an upright ride and agile feel - bridging modern geometry with classic form.
Well folks, the baseball season has begun and how better to celebrate then by showing off some of our sweet new product.
First up to bat - some sweet ladies gear. The Cannondale Synapse is a must ride for anyone searching for a new endurance road bike. With a vibration killing design, these bikes will keep you comfortable and efficient in the saddle for hours on end. In this week, the Synapse Tiagra, Synapse 105 Disc and Synapse Carbon 105.
Don't worry gents, we didn't forget you. We received the Synapse Tiagra Disc and Synapse 105 Disc - both beautiful bikes.
And finally, we've received our 2015 Bern Unlimited order and did they hit one out of the park with this years product line-up. The first exciting change is the ladies Melrose, a direct response to the Allston (which was one of our top sellers last year). With more ventilation, we anticipate these bad girls will fly out the door. That and the new Berkeley colors make this years ladies selection choice.
Coming off a great year for mens product, Bern added some really great color ways we think will spice up our normal selection. We've added a few colors in the Allston and Brentwood we think will turn some heads.
Enjoy opening day.
Clothing is an integral part to being comfortable on your bike. Whether your out for a casual ride about town on a warm, sunny summer day or planning a 3 hour off-road epic, the right clothing could mean the difference between a good time and a bad time. For 2015 we've made a conscious effort to focus on both the casual and performance ends of cycling apparel and have chosen some exciting product offerings from Cannondale, Club Ride, Giro and Sugoi.
Here's a little gallery of some of our offerings for the ladies.
Gents, we've got you covered as well.
As you may have noticed, much of the clothing we featured has a more casual style but don't be fooled as all of it is well suited to any type of riding. Stop in and check it out - we think you'll like it.

Beat Cycles is proud to announce our new partnership with Forest City Portage, handmade messenger bags, backpacks and accessories. I first saw FCP bags at 78th Street Studios and the first thing I noticed wasn't the quality (which is clearly top class) but the idiosyncratic style found in each product. Forest City Portage is a pioneer in the fashion, style and functionality that has become so important to cyclists today.
