2020 has been a wild year for many obvious reasons. While many people are sheltering in place and unfortunately, many are sick or worse, 2020 started out for Fyxation with production delays in China. We always order our Spring bikes at the end of the year and expect them to arrive in February/March. Unfortunately, our factory was shut down from January 1st - March 15th due to local restrictions caused by COVID. Once the factories got up and running it took a long time for staff to come back to work and for production to fully ramp back up. Well we're happy to report that production is cranking again and our new bikes are on the way. They are late, but still coming!
We're back! Demo and construction is underway at our shop on Humboldt and we still plan on being open early March, 2020. Just because we're closed for remodeling doesn't mean that we're sitting on the beach or out riding our fat bikes for the next few months.
We are pleased to announce that we have opened a Pop-up Shop at our warehouse and business headquarters in the Pedal Milwaukee building in Silver City. We've partnered with our neighbors at Velobahn Coffee and for the next 2 months we'll be open offering full service, repairs and new bike/gear sales. It's a bit smaller footprint but it's an amazing space where you can grab a coffee while you shop.

We just finished up the 4th annual Tour de Chequamegon bike packing trip in Northern Wisconsin and we wanted to put a little recap up here on our site. This trip is one of the highlights of our year and always makes us appreciate what we do here at Fyxation. Taking 40 people out into the north woods of Wisconsin to ride bikes and camp is a ton of work, but is extremely satisfying for our whole crew and while we're officially on the clock, it doesn't feel like work to us...
5 years ago we partnered with the Intelligentsia Cup to bring fixed gear street criteriums to the Midwest when we hosted the inaugural Fyxation Open in Chicago. The Fyxation Open turned 5 in 2018 and this year we decided to pass the baton to our friends over at Chrome Industries. Hosting and planning an event like the Fyxation Open takes a ton of work and we felt that bringing in some fresh stoke to the event would help keep this great race going in the future and Chrome, having a retail hub in Chicago, was the perfect company to hand the reins to...
It's hard to believe it but Fyxation just turned 10. We've been so slammed with summer and getting our 2020 line of bikes and gear ready that we haven't really taken time out to celebrate this milestone, but it's better late than never...
Ever since we launched our Sparta All Road carbon fork, we've been blown away by the response it's received and by the amazing photos we've seen from Sparta owners around the world. We can't get enough of these great photos and we thought it would be fun to do a little photo contest to inspire you to share your Sparta and your adventures.
We just got back from the first annual CABDA West bike show in Del Mar, CA and we thought we do a quick recap here on our blog. CABDA is a bicycle industry show that is for dealers only and is traditionally held just outside of Chicago. There has been a big shake up in the bike world of late in terms of bike trade shows and dealer events and CABDA has emerged as THE go to bike show for the bike industry. This was made possible by the recent demise of Interbike as it was announced that Interbike wouldn't be coming back to Reno in 2019....
