    Don't call it a comeback! Fyxation just turned 10 and to celebrate we're having a number of "X" edition releases coming out this year. The Eastside X is a tribute to the first Eastside we originally launched in 2013 and is a gloss blue fixed gear/single with silver and black parts speed designed to ride fast, last long and turn heads. 

    Design Inspiration

    Besides our Matte Black Eastside X, we wanted our premium single speeds to really stand out so we used a high quality gloss paint and stunning parts to make the Eastside X line-up really pop. The combination of quality parts and an equally high quality paint job, the new Eastside X is a great choice for any rider.

    Fixed Gear or Singlespeed

    All Eastsides 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. 

    Tech Specs

    The Blue Steel 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 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.

  • Our complete bikes ship via FedEx in a well padded professional bike box. The bikes ship 95% assembled and you'll simply need a few tools to get your bike built up and on the road. As always, we recommend taking your bike to your local bike shop to get it built up properly. If you don't have a shop nearby, you'll need a pedal wrench and a hex wrench to assemble your bike.

Good Ride

This is my first true single speed bike coming from a GT Meatball with a 2 speed automatic. I wanted something similar with a clean aesthetic and minimal maintenance. I honestly think you could get better value from other brands such as Pure Cycles or State Street for $100+ less - I only picked the Eastside for the color scheme and blacked out components (I'm actually not thrilled with the color, it's a much lighter blue than in the pictures.) The quality of the components seems ok and the 4130 chromoly steel frame still feels heavy, otherwise pretty decent out the box. Installation was a breeze.

Fun and Speedy

I haven't had a bike since I was a kid, but decided to get one for fitness and running errands. I ended up with the Eastside X, and I'm completely obsessed with it! Handles great, and is extremely fun to ride on.
