We just got back from NAHBS in Salt Lake City where we introduced our new Sparta All Road carbon fork. This fork is unique in that it's a carbon fork built with adventure mounts including fenders, racks and water bottle mounts. Retailing for only $299 this fork is sure to stir things up and help a lot of riders drop weight while keeping the versatility they're used to on their old steel and aluminum adventure rigs.
Our custom "People's Flag of Milwaukee" Quiver keeps getting great press here in Milwaukee. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel just featured the bike and gave a bit of insight into our design process and our custom bike program.
The third and final installment of Dave Schlabowske's, the Deputy Director of the Wisconsin Bike Fed, review of our new Carbon Gravel Bike was just posted to Riding Gravel. This is a super thorough series of 3 articles that Dave published about his adventures on our new rig. Full article below:
Fox 6 News here in Milwaukee just ran a feature on our latest custom bicycle. The custom Fyxation Milwaukee flag bike is going to be on display throughout the year in different locations around the city. For more info on our custom bike program, head over to www.fyxationcustoms.com.
Tyler from Bikerumor.com stopped by our booth at Interbike this year to meet with us and check out our 2017 line up. Bikerumor has been a big supporter of Fyxation over the years and while many of the other cycling media outlets are busy chasing what's hot, Tyler and his crew do a great job of covering all aspects of cycling news, even product releases from small and scrappy brands like Fyxation.

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.
