One of our favorite things here at Fyxation is working with brands to design and manufacture custom bikes for their businesses. We've been doing this since 2012 when we introduced our first bike model and it's really amazing to see how great these projects turn out. We have the ability to do simple corporate branding on bikes using graphics or decals or we can do large production runs with bikes truly designed for each customer..
We recently had the opportunity to work with 2 great brands that needed custom bikes and because it's summer and we're slammed, this blog post will be a quick recap for each custom build.
Goose Island Next Coast Custom
We've had the privilege of working with Goose Island Brewery on a number of custom bikes and annually we deliver custom Goose Island bikes for their employees 1 year anniversary at the company. We were recently contacted by the crew at Goose Island to develop a custom bike for their soon to be released Next Coast IPA and after working with their design team we came up with this amazing custom Next Coast Bike. This was a smaller production run of bikes but they were looking for something truly custom so we worked with a local painter and went all out with this amazing single speed bike. Below are a few pictures to get an idea of how things turned out. Thirsty?
Nike Custom Bikes: Ekin
Next up is this amazing custom bike that we designed for the crew over at Nike. Yeah that's right, Nike! We were contacted by a group within Nike that goes by the name Ekin (Nike spelled backwards). These guys are based in Chicago and they a sort of grass roots team at Nike that does events and goes around and gives away free gear to help promote the brand. Their jobs sound pretty sweet and they needed some equally cool custom bikes that incorporated Ekin branding into the bike but they also need something with gears to haul tons of shoes.
For this project we used our stock matte black Pixel and designed some great custom graphics. This is a more affordable option for companies and has a much quicker lead time because we can quickly design and print the decals in house and apply them to a stock bike. To add gears to our single speed Pixel we used our proprietary Six Fyx Shifting System that lets you turn any 120mm spaced track bike into a six speed commuter. We have to say, we're pretty pumped how these bikes turned. We even worked with our friends over at Bern and made some custom helmets for their group as well.
