2010 Superfly Bike

Monday, November 9th, 2009

For the first time ever on fixed gear bikes we are going to feature a non fixed gear bike. Shock. Horror. Yes I know, it has gears (plural :o ), but this isn’t just any mountain bike (I promise this will be the only non fixie for at least another 6 months..lol) this is the 2010 Superfly and it is 100% hot. What makes a mountain bike hot enough to make it out of the fringes of downhill biking lunatics and into the mass of cliche’ single speed bikes? 2 american national mtb title’s, held by a couple (yes man and wife) on a superfly.

This probably doesn’t mean a lot to pure fixie fckers but for all those out there that like to occasionally fly down a hill that isn’t tarmac’d here is a few pics of the super fly, superfly 2010 bike. Weighing just 24.3 pounds (that’s just over 11 kilograms!) this bike is big but light making it manoeuvrable and far from a chore on any terrain. It will cost you $5600 or at least £4k though – although this price is cushioned by a good suspension.

Don’t worry fixie heads, normal service will now be resumed!!

Genisis Bikes Flyer Review

Saturday, October 31st, 2009

I was searching the web, as normal, the other day when it struck me – I really want a Genisis Bikes Flyer. I surfed around a bit looking for a decent Genisis Flyer bike’s review but I couldn’t find anything like the detail I wanted on the bike. I also ebayed it and on searching for () I found only one bike (you can probably see it if you click it) which was a very nice, brand new Genesis flyer from 2009.

This is all well and good ebay sellers but I want a genesis flyer 2010 – where for art thou Genesis 2010? I probably can’t afford it anyway, and considering I cant find a decent review on the damn bike its probably not sensible to wade in and buy one. Anyone got a genesis flyer 2010 and want to write a review? I would happily put it up and happily buy one if I can read a bit more about it and its what I am looking for.

Fixed Gear Gallery

Saturday, October 24th, 2009

Here at fixed gear biking .co.uk we were thinking of getting together a really complete fixed gear gallery – we would have all the beautiful (and dog ugly) fixies that are currently shown on the net, in photo form in one place – what do people think? I know there is a ton of other fixed gear gallery sites and us ourselves kind of have a fixed gear gallery in bike porn. However there isn’t a great central point for all photographs of project fixie’s and custom builds, there’s forums but they arent the best place to house photographs. What does everyone think of a fixed gear gallery on FGB?

Probably our first additions would be our own fixie project bikes but would anyone else gladly add their own fixie photographs to the gallery?

2010 PK Ripper Fixed Gear Bike

Wednesday, September 30th, 2009

Another month flies past, but wait..whats that I see on youtube…its a kind shop keeper plying us with his wares!!! Check out this very nice 2010 PK Ripper fixed gear bike, I mainly like it because of its colour scheme, murderous black I would call it. Nice elements but definately some stuff I would take off/switch out – the frame looks nice but a bit chunky. Anyway check this fixie out its worth a watch, but don’t give up your dayride just yet….

A fixed gear bike

Wednesday, April 8th, 2009

A fixed gear bike, oh for xmas why don’t we all just buy 1 fixed gear bike? If everyone on the planet brought a fixed gear bike on the same day for someone they know climate change wouldnt be such an issue, the (should be rewarded) fixed gear bike makers would have to step up production but that one off cost would help out the polar bears, even if just a little bit. Plus itd be awesome fun seeing everyone you know and knowing they all have a fixed gear bike and they now have no excuse to not come out for a ride with you one day.

Oh wide world just go and get someone a fixed gear bike for thier birthday or xmas, I dare you.

Saturday, January 24th, 2009

Has anyone in the uk got a fixed gear tandem? I think the idea is so epic – I might go about building my own tandem fixed gear if I can find two matching classic raleigh’s of enough similarity. Thats a tandem fixie I would love to own. Whats every1′s take on the tandom fixed gear?

    Fixed Gear bike wallpaper’s

    Saturday, January 24th, 2009

    I have had a fixed gear bike as my pc wallpaper for the last year or so, I have gone between a few different bikes but I thought I would see if I can find any decent nice wallpapers of fixed gear bikes about the interwebz. The first one I found was this: a lovely example of a fixed gear, in nice high res which is perfect for my big lcd’s.

    Bespoke Bicycles / Custom Bikes

    Wednesday, November 26th, 2008

    Bespoke bikes is a huge business, I can’t see why none of you custom bicycle builders arent’ webbing it fully! I am looking for a little bespoke bicycle builder in outer london, I know the guys name but I lost his number and for the life of me I can’t find him anywhere online! But when I started the search I realised – theres not many of you doing much online?

    I have seen some excellent bike frames built custom and stuck on forums but I havent seen a decent website dedicated to bespoke bicycles since searching the web last for bike pornography (which can I say is a monthly thing that I revel in doing!)

    So come on all you bespoke bicycle guys – let me know where you are, get web-able or at least tell me about yourselves ;) we all love bespoke bikes so where are the real pro makers?

    Seriously hot bikes

    Saturday, November 8th, 2008

    Seriously hot bikes (I call it all bike porn) are everywhere, everywhere except in my bike garage where they should be – but seriously there are some seriously pretty fixed gear bikes out there – if you have one I want to see it – send me a picture, catch me in the city, let me take a pic and itll make it up here!

    If you have bike porn like this hot bike porn, send it to me – because stunning bikes not shared are not stunning – let us all love them!

    I never used to see bikes as pornography, when I was a kid I did like track bikes, always watched it on the tv, olympic cycling etc – but now I literally see an amazing fixie and I just want to ride and glide.My current favourite fixed gear phase is the twin colour picking – preferably with different colour front and back wheels/tyres – theres somin different about them I just like – duo-tone fixed gears.
