Cluster-fork clearance!!!!!

For a limited time, our unicrown "Cluster-forks" are available for $95 direct from BMW. We need to make some room in our warehouse, i.e, the space next to the milling machine. Weighing in at 1130 grams, these are some of the lightest forks, that are designed for FGFS, currently available. They feature custom drawn, butted, and heat-treated tubing. The axle-to-crown height is 410mm, and the offset is 32mm. These forks fit well on a variety of bikes and would be a big step up in strength and stiffness for most setups. They come drilled for caliper brake use and cantilever mounts can be added for an additional cost. Available in raw metal or satin black powdercoat. Email or call us to order.

Your ride is more thorough on a "Tour-boro"....

The latest frame to come out of 16 Powers St. is the Tour-boro. Built for exploring the city, getting out into the country, and just having some fun on the daily commute. Slicing through traffic, jumping the occasional curb cut, and maybe even some dirt thrown in for good measure. Fixed is fast, gears are faster. Internally geared hubs are low maintenance and efficient. The Tour-boro is built around a Shimano Alfine hub but can also be setup as a single speed. The geometry is a close cousin to the Gangsta and Launchpad. Fast, stable, and tough, while keeping responsiveness intact. 73mm BB, 135mm dropout spacing, and a choice of cantilever or caliper brake mounts. Two frame sizes available currently with a third larger size coming soon. MSRP for the frame and fork is $850 including a choice of a wide array of powdercoat colors. Complete builds are available. Made in Brooklyn.

The Tour-boro comes with a choice of cantilever or caliper brake mounts.

The Shimano Alfine hub is the nicest internally geared hub we have used.

Gusseted front triangle for pothole bashing and curb launches.
