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. The first configuration retails for $250 and includes our 120mm 32 hole bolt on hub with six speed cassette, proprietary derailleur hanger for horizontal dropout, indexed bar end shifter, 46t sprocket, rear derailleur, inner cable guide, steel cable clips for your down tube, cable guides for your chainstay and cable/housing. This set up is designed to let you use your existing rear wheel laced to our hub or so you color match the rear and front wheel using your current wheels.
The second configuration retails for $300 and includes all of the items from the first kit except the hub is laced to a black rear Fyxation wheel giving you 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.
