With fall in the air and winter teasing us with its colder temperatures, it felt like a good time to put out a call for a fat bike group ride. And Milwaukee answered the call. Over 40 people showed up with their fat bikes at Fyxation HQ shop for an afternoon ride to Lake Michigan....
Founded in 2014, the Fyxation Open is a true fixed gear criterium race held in the heart of downtown Chicago that we host in conjunction with the Praire State Cycling Series Intelligentsia Cup. The second annual Fyxation Open took place in July and it was a huge hit. The size of the field and the quality of riders improved dramatically over the first year. For 2015 we added a dedicated women's and the race generated a ton of excitement and we were able to offer equal cash and prizes for both the men's and women's riders.
We have some big plans in the works for 2016 and while we can't reveal all the details yet, we will say that riders will have more than one chance to compete in the Fyxation Open.
The official website for the Fyxation Open is live and we'll be updating the site regularly as more details about the 2016 race schedule becomes available. Head over to http://www.fyxationopen.com/#intro for more info.
In the meantime, here's a quick recap video from the 2015 race. See you next year!
Winter is coming and whether you're looking to store your bike in the basement for the winter (boo) or you plan on commuting to work every day, a good winter tune up is always recommended. Bikes that sit around all winter should be prepped for storage and bikes that are on our winter roads need to be able to keep the elements at bay. Here at our Milwaukee bicycle shop, we're offering a great winter tune up special to get your bike ready for the season...
What do you get when a group of hardy souls that thrive among the northern wilderness and are accustomed to -40 degree winters with annual snowfall of over 100 inches, turn their love of the outdoors to mountain biking? The answer is some of the most spectacular riding destinations in the States. Nestled along the North Coast of Wisconsin, Minnesota and Michigan trail builders have been quietly constructing flow trails and groomed fat bike routes and are stringing them all together using grass roots support and hard work....
With the days getting shorter and the temperature dropping we thought it would be fitting to post a "better late than never" recap of a frozen photo shoot we did this last winter.
Earlier in the year, on a cold and clear Wisconsin night, a few of us headed out to the frozen Milwaukee river with a collection of items that would definitely make a cop call for backup. With us were 3 of our new carbon fiber Blackhawk fat bikes, a bunch of steel wool, a few whisks, some chain, a 9V battery, a DSLR camera and tripod.
The days are getting shorter and the leaves are just starting to turn here in Milwaukee but the weather has been amazing. We've been using this great weather to get out around our city and take photos of the new Eastside models that we just released....
