Urban Velo Issue #44 is Out!

The latest issue of Urban Velo just came out and as always we have an ad running in the pages of this fine magazine.  For the latest issue we put in a teaser add about our new Six Fyx conversion kit that will be on the market in early December.  The whole point of the 6 Fyx isn't to "fix" anything. It's simply a way to turn your beloved track frame into a simple 6 speed city bike. Whether your knees are hurting you from riding fixed for too long or you're tired of getting out the saddle to make it up the hills in town, the Six Fyx conversion kit lets you easily add 6 gears to your existing frame. Rather than going out and buying an entirely new geared bike, this quick kit let's you add our proprietary 120mm spaced hub that includes a 6 speed cassette.  Available as a kit with the hub/parts or the complete wheel/parts, the Six Fyx is a great way to for you to keep that old trusty track frame running for years to come...

What's Old is New: VintageTrek 937 Conversion

When it comes to building your bicycle, it's a personal matter. Getting color, spec and every detail just right is so important, that's why when we were approached by Dan to assist with his vintage Trek conversion we were excited. At Fyxation we're known for customizing our own builds to suit riders needs, so to get the chance to work on a frame with a great history and outfit it with full Fyxation kit couldn't be passed up....
