Milwaukee, WI – October 6, 2014 – Fyxation, a leading manufacturer of urban cycling products, announced today that their full line of frames, parts and accessories will be available in Canada through an exclusive distribution agreement with Outdoor Gear Canada (OGC). Effective October 1, 2014 dealers throughout Canada will be able to order the full Fyxation offering through OGC.
Since launching their brand in 2009 with the introduction of their Session 700 tire, Fyxation has steadily expanded their offering which now includes a complete line of urban/commuter bicycles, frames, parts and a line of made in the USA leather goods. This will be the first time that Fyxation's frames will be available in Canada and OGC will be carrying their full frame offering including their versatile Quiver frameset and their newly announced Blackhawk carbon fiber fat bike frameset.
David Bowman, President and founder of Outdoor Gear Canada was quoted as saying “Urban cycling is driving most of the growth in the bike business these days. OGC has put together a program of the best urban brands in cycling and Fyxation is a very important addition to that program. We’re very pleased they’ve chosen to work with us in Canada.”
"Partnering with OGC is a big win for us here at Fyxation”, says Nick Ginster, Founder and General Manager of Fyxation. “OGC has a strong reputation in the Canadian market and is very selective about the brands they choose to work with. Canada is an important market for our company, and while our parts and accessories have been available there for years, this is the first time that our frames will be stocked locally. In addition to their 2 regional distribution centers, OGC has a very strong sales force and great dealer relationships. We are honored to partner with them and look forward to further expanding our presence in Canada."
