Sam is our welder. Sam welds all Boston Bikes right here in our beautiful state of Massachusetts. Our bikes are made out of chromoly steel, which is a very strong light weight material also used to make airplanes and race cars. We are proud that all of our materials are made in the USA!

My name is Tim Mathewson and I have been in the bicycle industry for 49 years. During this time, I have ridden almost every type of bike made. I have watched as the industry adopted new materials for lighter and lighter bikes. I have also watched bicycle design move away from proper ergonomics for the masses in pursuit of speed. While the racer may have benefited from such designs, the common rider has not.
If a bicycle is built with compliant geometry and is ergonomically correct, it will bring joy every time it is ridden and it will be ridden much more often than if is uncomfortable. I own over 50 bikes and ride 10 or so on a regular basis with the ones made of steel being my preference.
The bicycle offered is for the common rider and made to be maintenance free, allowing the rider more time to ride. My wife and son as well as myself, all ride on with the same frame. Of all the materials used to build a bike, I would choose steel every time. With the use of steel, good geometry, and top level components, it is hard to beat the overall experience.
No one I know ever regrets quality after they buy it. Today’s readily available technology often build dreams without foundations.
There is no reason to reinvent the bicycle. Just make nice ones and people will thank you for it.
Thank you for the time for me to weigh in some thoughts. Feel free to email me with any questions.
