Don't call it a comeback! The Eastside is a fixed gear bike designed to ride fast, last long and turn heads. Originally introduced in 2013, the Eastside remains our most popular bike and for good reason. The Matte Black Eastside is back for it's fourth season and is the most popular bike we've ever produced.
Don't mess with a classic! The Matte Black Eastside was the first bike we ever produced and even though we love colors here at Fyxation, the Matte Black Eastside is our most popular selling model. Using a strong matte black paint scheme, the signature Divide stripes and decals are gloss black giving this bike a subtle yet inviting look. Built with all black parts and of course Fyxation parts, the new Divide Series Matte Black Eastside is a great choice for any rider.
Fixed Gear or Singlespeed
All Divide Series bikes ship as a single speed so you can coast, but can very easily be converted into a fixed gear by simply rotating the rear wheel using our flip-flop hub. Single speed bikes make a ton of sense in most urban and suburban areas. They are affordable, easy to maintain and repair and make great commuter and get around town bikes. Fyxation bikes are geared for city riding so even with one gear you can cruise around town with ease.
Rise Bars vs. Pursuit Bullhorn Bars
With the new Eastside Divide Series you have the choice to choose between rise bars or pursuit bullhorn bars. Rise bars offer the rider a more upright ride and are great for commuting and keeping your head up while riding. We provide an extra wide rise bar that gives you plenty of control when navigating through the city. Our Pursuit bar is our most popular handlebar and since we introduced it in 2011 has been one of our most copied products. This bar gives you multiple hand positions while still being able to easily reach your brakes. You can ride in the center, in the drops or on the end of the bars giving you an aggressive bar with tons of options. Either way you can't go wrong but now you can choose your bar at checkout.
The Matte Black Eastside is built using 4130 chromoly steel for both the frame and the fork which means this beauty is light and strong. We use only sealed bearing hubs in our wheels which gives the Eastside a smooth ride and is something you typically find in higher end track and road bikes. The Matte Black Eastside uses our go anywhere Session 700 tires which were originally introduced by Fyxation in 2009 and are known around the world for their durability and longevity. Finally, all Fyxation bikes ship with front and rear brakes! While this may seem silly to point out, most fixies and singlespeeds on the market ship with only one brake which is both unsafe and forces you to spend extra money adding parts after your initial purchase.

I purchased this bike for commuting around the suburbs of Chicago. The ride is smooth, the bike looks sharp, and the handling is great. It has far exceeded my expectations and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a low maintenance city bike.
Ordered on Friday, delivered following Wednesday. I REALLY like this bike but had to make a few adjustments to get a comfortable riding position. Ordered with Rodeo Pursuit Bars which were just too low for me so swapped out with the Rodeo Bullhorn and riding position is perfect. Added bar end and inline brakes to give lots of options to stop when riding. On delivery bike was well packed, wheels true, and very quick/easy to build. Been out a few times and all excellent. Visited the store in Milwaukee today, nice space and really helpful folks (great coffee next door as well). All in all, pleased I chose the bike.
This year was my first year living off of campus at college and it quickly became apparent I would need something to transport myself to and from class and home. Being located in flat Chicago I figured I would need to look no further than a single speed. After going through a couple local shops I came across the sleek matte black Fyxation Eastside in Johnny Sprockets while the looks initially captured my interest I fell in love once I rode it. It was apparent I had found the brand that took it a step above the rest. Being in Chicago having both front and rear breaks was an automatic advantage over the competition, tires being a higher quality, steel frame for a superior ride, it had everything any college commuter could ask for. Now that I have been riding to and from class for the past month I have yet to have single problem with the bike, and even if i did it could be fixed with basic tools most people have laying around. If anyone asked me, I wouldn't recommend any other bike.
I bought my Fyxation Eastside over 3 1/2 years ago, during a Christmas sale, and it probably has over 5,000 miles on it now. It's really a very nice bike to ride for my long 30-mile round trip bike commute, as well as frequent shopping trips and recreational rides in the country. It’s not the lightest bike in the world, but it soaks up road chatter like nobody’s business. Yet it’s still light enough that hills don’t **** me too badly. The parts have proven to be decently durable, with a bit of TLC now and then. In all that time, the only things I’ve changed out are the tires, tubes, bar tape and the chain, which are consumables on any bicycle. I haven’t even had to true the wheels once. I did finally have to pull the bottom bracket last year, and give it a good scrubbing and some fresh grease. The wheels will get the same treatment this fall. Overall, I’m very pleased with my purchase. It’s a good reliable workhorse style of singlesspeed bike. And the matte black with bullhorns looks absolutely sensational.
So I bought this bike recently and I can say I love it. I've been looking at single speed bikes for that past few months and really like how this one looked and felt. The steel frame feels great on Chicago roads. Would be nice to have the option of double or triple butted tubing but for the money the straight gage tubing hits the mark pricewise. I have mine set up with a free wheel...fixed gear just isn't for me. I definitely need to get used to not being able to downshift at stops but that will come to me after a few more long rides. I am going to use this bike for short trips and as a commuter to work. In this role I feel this bike will shine. Long bike rides will be handled by my Campy equipped road bike. The only fault I have with this bike is that the brakes feel a tad bit weak. Maybe they require an adjustment or better brake pads/calipers. For the money, this bike is tough to pass up.
