Performance Commuter — Commute in Style
Heralded by clean, functional design, the Borough is everything you need for the city—and nothing you don’t. In introducing a new category of performance commuter, we’ve designed the Borough to be light and agile, with practical advantages, true comfort and understated style. You can celebrate your fitness, stay healthy and have fun in a rapidly changing world with the Borough.
An elegant, light carbon frame is dressed with components ready to stand up to the real world. With a Shimano urban spec, a Full Speed Ahead cockpit and a set of flat pedals, the Borough is ready to cruise.
The Borough is blessed with agile handling and a comfortable, upright straight-bar riding position. You’ll cruise with confidence, whether on the busy avenue, along the city gravel paths, or up the riverwalk. The Borough also includes functional features including pannier and rack mounts that allow you to load up for work, grab a quick latte, pack for the gym or just bring along a change of clothes for a meet-up with friends along the bike path.
The Borough is ready to play as well; comprised of light carbon and plenty of gears, it’s poised to help you stay fit during your workouts on two wheels.
Eschew mass transit for your own commute. Be there first for happy hour. Earn that sweat equity with a lively weekend bikeway ride. Do it all with this performance commuter bike.

With plenty of gears and packed with features allowing for packability, the Borough is at home on your day’s commute to the office, to the café for your morning coffee, an apres-work happy hour, or even your weekend fitness ride in the city parkways. With a fork that allows a wider tire, you can also hit the gravel trails with friends.

What should I do if I am between on two sizes?
If you can achieve your required seat height with both bikes sizes, then you can pick based on your riding preference or style. The smaller frame will be more nimble while the larger bike may feel higher and faster. LiveChat with us or email us for help finding the right size.
How do I mount accessories onto my Obed?
Our Baseline and Boundary models have various mounting points for a multitude of accessories available on the market.
For nutrition and hydration, our water bottle and top tube storage mounts can be used with most 2-hole accessories designed for M5 x 0.8mm mounts spaced 65mm apart. The screws provided with the frame are 10mm long and should be replaced with longer screws should your accessory mounting bracket be more than 3mm thick.
At the rear of the bike, we have provided fender and light rack mounting points. Unlike many metal bikes which may have open ended mounting points, our carbon fiber frames have closed end mounting points. This requires special attention to the length of screw when mounting racks and fenders with various thickness attachments. Should the accessory mounting point be more than 2mm thick, source screws that are 10-13mm longer than the thickness of the item you’re attaching.
For fork mounted accessories, the same rules apply as mounting to our seatstays and dropouts.
We recommend a 20lb load weight limit.
