2010 Model No Longer Available
Rocky Mountain Boroughs Bike - 2010 BCS
Climb aboard the Rocky Mountain Boroughs, and let your hands caress the oversized bullhorn handlebars while you skillfully avoid the freestylers in front of the record store. After you’ve parked your Boroughs Bike and had your double espresso next door, peruse the shelves for some sweet vintage vinyl to impress the ladies. Pull out your 15mm wrench plus bottle opener and flip your rear wheel to the more climb-friendly 18-tooth rear cog—no one wants to grind that 16-tooth up the hill. Once you’ve made it back home, wipe the sweat away, place your sweet whip prominently in your hardwood-floored living room, and crack a tallboy—congratulations, you’ve reached hipster nirvana .
- Oversized 31.8mm bullhorn handlebars are more comfortable mid-skid
- Fixed / fixed rear hub with 16- and 18-tooth cog options lets you choose your gearing
- Color-matched bar and chain up your awesome factor
- Deep-dish, double-wall wheels last through summer after summer of skidding and curb-hopping
- Cro-Moly frame and fork are durable and strong for years of abuse

Do I have to by pedals? If so what do you recommend?
October 9, 2010
What pedals would you recommend if you did not want pedals that required special shoes? I dont want a pedal that locks my feet into them. I was looking at the 5050x, but they look like bmx pedals...
any other platform pedals recommended?

Yes they do need pedals, but I dunno what to recommend. Maybe some one else can chime in for that.
Im confused as to which pedals to get. I dont think I want anything that clips my feet in at all. I was looking at the crank brothers 5050X. Does anyone know if that would be a good choice?

So do I have to be a fixxy snob that's into underground bands no one will ever hear of as well as wear perfectly NOT trendy clothes yet still wear tattoos that sailors used to earn at sea but now are more badass on those who have never seen the world through a sailors eyes while carrying a messenger bag to enjoy this bike?

No, you don't have to be. And in many ways, this bike is a far "cry" from the V-necked, dreamcatcher wearing, hipsters are using. Track type high flange hubs and track specific bolts paired with the appropriate geometry and how far forward the bars put you, make this a REAL track bike. Is it good for Urban commuting? Yes! Do you have to listen to Further Seems Forever? No!
