Not the most functional rack ever, but classy as hell. I am pretty sure I reported on these being created a long time ago, but for the life of me can’t find it…either way I like em. What do you think?

Cambridge is having an artistic bicycle rack competition, featuring 15 unique designs at the Cambridge Arts Council space at 344 Broadway (go up the steps in the main room). I got a chance to check it out, and its pretty nice, you have one more day to go look. These projects will be incorporated into the upcoming sidewalk improvements in Kendall Square.

Written by Boston Biker on Nov 09

Got this in the email, looks like fun.

“Superb Bicycle is proud to present Bella Biciclette, an exhibition of beautiful vintage bicycles from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. Expect to see bicycles from Colnago, De Rosa, Rossin, Takhion, Eddy Merckx and even a Cinelli Laser. All bicycles and frames at the show will be available for purchase. Please RSVP by emailing [email protected] with your name in the subject line. Beverage and light appetizers will be provided and formal dress is suggested. RSVP will be required for entry and remember we have limited space inside our shop so there might be a line to get in, *hint* arrive early!

If you are a collector, or very interested in purchasing one of these unique bicycles please let us know in your RSVP as we will be having a special early showing for seriously interested buyers.

Last years “Hot Bike” contest was such a success that we will be throwing another one this year. We will have categories such as: Best Paint Job, Most Aero, Most Original, and Best Vintage Style. Bring your hottest bike as long as you didn’t place in last years competition. This years judging will be by attendees of the show so everyone can vote! The winners will get prizes from some of our favorite brands and entry into the contest is only $5.

Please be respectful of our neighbors and no outside drinks will be permitted in the shop.
