Fyxation has been in business since June 2009 and we're humbled by all the support we've received over the years. As we've grown, we've had to move our offices a bunch of times and we recently completed our latest move when we relocated our office, design center, leather production and warehouse to a new location in the Riverwest neighborhood here in Milwaukee.
It's always been our goal to open a flagship store here in Milwaukee that we could use to show people our latest products..

When we launched the Six Fyx conversion kit we were excited to see what types of bikes people would start converting over into six speed road bikes. So far we haven't been disappointed and this latest six speed conversion from Ian in San Francisco is worthy of a quick blog post. Ian just sent over these great pictures and a quick review about his experience converting his Mercier Kilo TT single speed bike into a six speed road bike to help him navigate the hilly streets of San Francisco. Thanks Ian!

There are a lot of things that we love about living here in Milwaukee and one of our favorites is the local radio station that you'll hear when you come into our shop here in Riverwest, 88Nine Radio Milwaukee. Radio Milwaukee is a 501(c)3 non-profit local radio station that is fully supported by members, donors, underwriters and volunteers. In the ever static world of corporate radio stations, 88Nine focuses on local music and music from smaller bands all over the US and world. They have great DJ's, excellent new music and even have a live stream on their website so you can listen to their music whenever and wherever you are...
Two years ago at Interbike we introduced a new product called the Six Fyx. It was mostly a prototype at the time and we brought it to Interbike to see what bike shops and industry folks thought about it. After Interbike we went back to the drawing board a bit and made a few tweaks to the system but finally, after what seems like forever, the Six Fyx is in stock and now shipping!
