For those of lucky enough to live here in Milwaukee (no seriously) there is one local business that I feel pretty much defines the cool things that are happening here in this great city. Colectivo Coffee started off in 1993 as what was then known as Alterra Coffee. Throughout the years they slowly expanded their presence here in Milwaukee with a combination of hard work, great coffee and super cool coffee shops that were located in the best spots around town. This is pretty impressive...
We are less than 2 weeks away from the inaugural Fyxation Open street crit that will be held right in the heart of downtown Chicago during the Prairie State Cycling Series Chicago Criterium and the stoke is building. Pre-registration is now closed and we sold out nearly half of the available spots. In total 75 riders will be able to participate in the race and we're expecting a full field on the day of the race.
In addition to the $500 in cash that we will be offering up and our Eastside complete...
It's been almost a year since we launched our first bike model, the Eastside, and it's been pretty wild ride. The Eastside was introduced as a high quality option for riders that wanted a quality build single speed and didn't simply want to settle for the cheap bikes that were flooding the market. Designed here in Milwaukee and made in Taiwan, the Eastside features our 4130 chromoly frameset and our high end parts and accessories. Fast forward to today and the Eastside is still selling strong and is now available in Australia, Japan, Europe, Canada and the US.
Following in the footsteps of the Eastside, we are pleased to introduce our newest model for 2014, the Fyxation Pixel. Borrowing from the same geometry as the Eastside and retailing for only $459, the Pixel is a great bike and an even better value. Built as a single speed with a flip flop hub the Pixel features an upright comfortable design, quality made parts and a stunning paint job that's sure to turn heads. The Pixel is available in 2 colors - graphite and glacier blue, and in 4 sizes - 49cm, 52cm, 55cm and 58cm. They're in stock now at stocking Fyxation dealers.
We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting the first annual Fyxation Open fixed gear criterium in Chicago, IL on July 26th, 2014. This high energy fixed gear only criterium will be held in conjunction with the Chicago Criterium on day 7 of the Prairie State Cycling Series Intelligentsia Cup and will be held just prior to the men's pro main event at 5:50PM. Over $1500 in cash, prizes and primes are up for grabs during the Open and with a field limit of only 75 riders space will fill up quickly!

Earlier in the year our friend Kirk from cycling blog Forward Set reached out to us because he had just moved to Los Angeles from Florida and was looking for a bike that he could use as his daily commuter and for making deliveries while working as a bike messenger. We had just launched our Quiver 1x10 which we feel is a perfect commuter for our local market here in Milwaukee but we were interested to see how it could handle the streets of LA.
Below is a quick review that Kirk after having spent a few months with his Quiver...
