The Six Fyx Conversion Kit is a unique solution cooked up here at Fyxation that's designed to help you add a few gears to an existing 120mm track or fixed gear frame. The whole point of the Six Fyx isn't to "fix" anything. Over the years fixed gear bikes have been embraced by the masses due to their simplicity, low cost and ease of maintenance. Over time however, many people have realized that while riding fixed is fun, there are times when gears are good as well.
Rather than having to go out and buy an entirely new bike to make it up that hill on your commute or give your knees a rest from riding fixed, the Six Fyx Conversion Kit was designed to let you turn that fixed gear frame into a six speed road bike. Based off our proprietary 120mm 6 speed hub/cassette, the Six Fyx works with any 120mm spaced track frame, even those with a horizontal dropout. Using a combination of our hub/cassette, Fyxation removable derailleur hanger and our indexed bar end shifter, the Six Fyx let's you easily convert your beloved track frame into a six speed city bike.
The Six Fyx is available in two different configurations; one with the hub and parts so you can build up your existing wheel with our system and this option which ships as a complete wheel from Fyxation. Everything you'll need to add 6 gears to your bike is included with this option and we ship out a fully built wheel already laced to the Six Fyx hub. This is a truly "plug and play" solution. Regardless of the option you choose, we highly recommend working with your local bike shop to configure the Six Fyx so they can dial things in exactly the way you want it.
The Six Fyx is a great system to help add a little speed to your commute or make it easy to charge up that hill on your way to school. Here at Fyxation we're obviously big fans of a single cog, but if you're looking to get into riding a road bike and are considering giving gears a go, the Six Fyx is a great way to help you make that transition.

This conversion kit is perfect for my bike fixie build! Everything about this product lived up to my expectations! 5 out of 5
I'm very happy to keep my track frame, but gain the convenience of gears. Some things to look out for during installation 1 - You will have to remove the lever from the bar-end shifter to tighten the plug into your handlebars. Make sure to reinstall the lever in the correct position, or it won't be able to reach all of its indexes. 2 - The wheel has a pretty deep rim. You will need 60mm valve stems on your tubes, and you will also want a rim band or tape because the spoke holes are fairly sharp edged.
The experience was great! Took a bit longer than expected for delivery but the product is great! Easy to install and tune. Highly recommended for anyone with a fixie that wants to keep the frame and convert it into a multipurpose bike.
Awesome ... I loved that kit you can go from gear to fixed gear at any time . It like having a 2 in 1 bike .
