“In early 2012 when we started to work on the Quiver our goal was to introduce a frameset that was affordable, versatile and flexible enough that with a few different parts you could build your ideal bike. Whether you need an aggressive commuter, a comfortable city bike or an affordable frameset for cyclocross season, we feel the Quiver is the frameset for you.
Relaxed road geo, plenty of room for large tires and fenders plus Fyxation’s unique combination of removable derailleur hanger and cable stops make this frame just as at home as a single speed, internal or 1×10 build. Designed with horizontal dropouts, removable derailleur hanger and removable cable stops, the Quiver can be run as an ultra clean single speed or as a 2×10 build. We also made the rear wheel spacing 132.5 to accommodate a road hub or internal gear hub. Want to run a large tire? The Quiver can take up to 700x47c. Need fenders or a rack? The Quiver comes equipped with dual eyelets in the rear dropout and fender eyelet on the fork.
The Quiver is in production now and will be in stock at Fyxation dealers in mid April.”
“Made out of double butted 6061 aluminum the 31.8 Rodeo Pursuit bar is strong, stiff and light. The Rodeo Pursuit Bullhorn bar with 31.8 clamp provides a wide range of hand positions and a subtle 40mm drop for a comfortable and quick forward position. Whether riding the center for relaxed spinning or forward for sprints, the Rodeo Bullhorn bar is the ideal pursuit bar.”
Fyxation’s photography contest is still going on and out of all the submissions, Joseph’s is the only video. Check it out as Ryan rips through the streets of SF with the Session tires. You can see all the finalists here, on Fyxation.
As an homage to the classic “smokers” photo from the Tour of yesteryear, Kevin Dillard of Demoncats submitted this remake to the Fyxation photographer’s contest, landing him in the finalist list. See more at Fyxation.
Fyxation is extending their sponsorship reach to potential photographers. Here are some details as to how you could land it:
“Photos of cyclists and their gear have the ability to inspire us, but behind every great rider or gear photo is a talented photographer.
