On the Rivet Cycle and Sport: A Haven for Cyclists in Cambridge
June 22, 2018 |
If you're an avid cyclist, then you might already know what lies behind the name of On the Rivet Cycle and Sport. Its owner was inspired by a small detail of vintage bikes: the rivet in the front of the saddle. So when you were pedaling particularly fast, your friends might say you were "on the rivet." Since On the Rivet Cycle and Sport specializes in vintage bikes, it seemed like a fitting name.
The shop not only sells a mix of retro and contemporary cycles, it also fixes them up. Customers rave about the quality of the service at the locally owned store, saying the proprietor frequently opens early and stays late to help out a customer. It also rents bikes if you just want to go for a quick spin around Cambridge, and sells specialty kayaks in-store.
