Prepped to face the most challenging obstacles New York City has to offer, the newest frame to come out of Brooklyn Machine Works (BMW) is that of Tour Boro Frame. As the name suggested, its a go-anywhere, do-anything mean of transport, be it the soggy Fall foliage in Central Park or pot-hole studded Eighth Avenue of Brooklyn. If you need to get your fill on some urban aesthetics, simply switch out the Shimano Alfine hub to Single Speed. A selection of cantilever or caliper brakes, the fame is light for speedy entry and exit thorough the busy city traffic, just rugged for those unexpected moments where you need to clear a path of your own. Call it anything, just don’t call it a “hybrid bike”. The Tour Boro Frame is now for sale at Brooklyn Machine Works in 2 frame sizes and a selection of powder-coated colorways.
