Quiver 1x10 Super Commuter

 

We just got in our very first production Quiver 1x10 here in Milwaukee and we are so stoked to release these into the wild. The Quiver is a 1x10 commuter bike that is just as at home on the open road as it is managing your daily commute.

When we launched the Quiver frameset in early 2013 we were excited to see what types of builds our customers would come up with.  Being such a flexible frameset the Quiver is at home as a single speed but can just as easily built up as a geared bike. After selling a ton of these framesets for custom builds and working with customers here in our Milwaukee workshop we decided that there needed to be a complete Quiver build that we could distribute to our bike shops here in the US and abroad. 

Now one of the best things about working here at Fyxation is having the ability to sit down with a blank slate and create a product from scratch.  Developing a new bike is especially challenging because not only do you need to decide on the material and color options, you also have to carefully select what parts you'll use and who you plan to target the bike to.

Working with such a flexible frameset posed a few other unique challenges because the bike could be built up as a singlespeed, internal geared or geared bike but after seeing enough 1x10 custom builds going out the door we decided to release the Quiver complete as a 1x10 road/commuter bike.  We feel that a 1x10 drivetrain gives you plenty of gear options and for the typical commuter and even road cyclist, 10 gears is more than enough to do what you need.

Here are a few highlights of the Quiver complete.  We used SRAM Apex doubletap shifter and SRAM Apex rear derailleur to give this bike a smooth, precise and ergonomic shifting system.  For the wheels we used the Alex G2000 CX rim which is a very strong rim that can handle the toughest urban riding conditions.  Finally, we decided to use our 700x35c Session 700 tires because there's simply no other city tire that belongs on the Quiver.

The Quiver will be available in mid January at your local Fyxation dealer and will be available in matte black and orange.  .
