Detroit Bicycle Company - Motor City Fixed

When we were at Interbike this year the guys from Detroit Bicycle Company came by our booth. We had never heard of them before and were interested in their story. They are based in Detroit, a city that's been pretty hammered by the economy. The Fyxation brothers are originally from the Detroit area so we're stoked to see what they're doing. Rather than following the model that's all the rage these days - super cheap fixed gear completes made out in China - the guys at Detroit Bicycle Company are building custom fixed gear bikes and according to their site the frames are hand crafted in Detroit. They offer 5 different complete bikes and each one is topped off with Brooks saddles and Cinelli and Campagnolo parts. Definitely not your average "cheap fixie".

Check out this post from Cycle EXIF for some great photos and a bit more about the guys at Detroit Bicycle Company - We borrowed a few pictures from Cycle EXIF post below. Enjoy!
