Pixel Single Speed: The Wait is Almost Over!

Here at Fyxation we pride ourselves in developing each one of our bikes in house. We strive to blend fit, performance and style so that each new model is unique to Fyxation.  Many of our competitors have no idea how to actually design a bike themselves and simply rely on their factories to design the bikes.  While this is a quick way to bring a new product to market, it more or less relegates these companies to the US marketers of said designs.  We feel there's something missing from not actually designing the bikes you sell and prefer to do things here in Milwaukee rather than simply outsourcing every aspect of the bike to someone that's thousands of miles away.

We've been working on bringing our new Pixel Singlespeed to market for quite some time and we feel we've developed the perfect singlespeed bike...

Fyxation at BrewExpo America

We never thought we'd be posting about Fyxation products being on display at an event called BrewExpo America. Then again, 12 months ago we had no idea we'd be selling a complete line of handmade leather bicycle accessories either.  So it's fitting that our Tannery Collection will be on display at next week's craft beer show in Denver, CO in the booth of our new friends from Innate Gear.

Innate Gear makes a line of cool accessories for the active lifestyle and at BrewExpo America and the Craftbeer Conference...

Keep Your Gears Clean With Cogly

We recently came across a new campaign on Kickstarter for a product called Cogly and we'd thought we'd give them a plug here.  Cogly was developed by a group of cyclists based out of Minnesota where like here in Milwaukee, the dirt, debris and salt can really do a number on your bike.  Cogly is a simple tool that let's clean your chain, chainrings and cassette without having to use multiple brushes or rags to get into those hard to reach spaces.  Designed with a ergonomic curved handle, the Cogly let's you...

Fix It Sticks "Sticks" With Kickstarter

We just saw that the guys at Fix It Sticks have posted another Kickstarter project to launch their second generation Fix It Sticks Replaceable Edition and their new Fix It Sticks T-Way Wrench .  As a company we think Kickstarter is a great way to launch a new company or product but we're a little afraid to try it out ourselves.  The reason we're so afraid is that it appears to be as addictive as crack because everyone that uses Kickstarter seems to keep going back for more hits....

G. Groppi Food Market

We've been meaning to get a few more images of our leather six pack caddy stocked full of some of our favorite beers and yesterday, Mauricio here at Fyxation went out to Groppis in Bay View to snap a few pics. Groppis is a great local market that has everything from paninis to produce and has been a Milwaukee fixture for a long time.  In fact, our parents grew up in Bay View and have stories about hanging out at Groppi's when they were kids...
