Milwaukee, WI – October 24, 2016 – Fyxation, a Milwaukee based bicycle company, announced today that they are expanding on their all-road lineup with the introduction of the Crusher adventure platform. Built around a full carbon frameset, the Crusher is at home navigating rain swollen two track, loose gravel roads and is quick but comfortable touring over rolling pavement. The Crusher’s lightweight but adaptable frameset packs in gravel and bikepacking prowess in an affordable all-road package.
Ben Ginster, co-founder of Fyxation was quoted as saying, "The Crusher builds off our successful all-road Quiver line that has been running clearance for 42c tires and plenty of rack mounts for years. The difference is this frame will put you into the 20lb all-road class without breaking the bank or leaving you light on features."
The Crusher has adopted both flat mount disc brakes and front and rear thru axles that are pushing the boundaries of performance in both gravel, road and CX categories. Internal routing, including Di2 ready porting, is standard on the Crusher. Rack and fender mounts front and rear are combined with three water bottle cage positions for maximum packing potential. Clearance for 40c tires rounds out the Crusher’s gravel pedigree and the lightweight platform makes this bike a terrific all-arounder.
Ben Ginster continued “We recently returned from the inaugural Tour de Chequamegon three day bikepacking tour in which we guided a group of 20 riders through gravel roads, single track and ATV trails that were more pond than trail. To say the Crusher exceeded expectations is an understatement. I was able to pack every bit of gear between my frame, seat and handlebar bags but still feel comfortable at speed when fully loaded.”
The Crusher is available as a complete and as a frameset. With complete carbon builds starting at $1999 the Crusher not only pushes the boundaries of performance but leaves room in the budget for full bikepacking gear.

We just got back from the inaugural Tour de Chequamegon bike-packing/gravel trip and the experience was amazing. Dave Schlabowske, Deputy Director of the Wisconsin Bike Fed, was a key part of making this ride happen and he just published this excellent review of our journey. Enjoy!
The crew over at Cyclocross Magazine stopped by our booth at Interbike this year to see the latest from Fyxation and they wrote a great article covering the 2017 Quiver Disc and Quiver Canti. They featured the original Quiver when it was introduced in 2013 and this is a great follow up piece.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel recently swung by our shop and HQ to interview co-founder, Ben Ginster, about the brand and the introduction of our new Quiver and Crusher gravel grinder.
Chip Brewster from local news station Fox 6 came by our Milwaukee bicycle shop here in Riverwest to interview Fyxation co-founder, Nick Ginster. Chip and his crew got an up close look at our operations and even got to see one of our latest prototypes.
