2010 Fixie Inc Road and Cyclocross Bicycles

fixie-inc-blackjack_2010_08Fixie Inc, as usual, has some beautiful bikes in their stable.  New for 2010 is the first-ever flip-flop (fixie/single speed) bike with a Gates carbon belt drive.

They have the True Blood cyclocross rig and a number of gorgeous steel singlespeed and geared road bikes.  Check them all out after the break… but here’s a little teaser:  Shown below (and in the detail above) is the 2010 BlackJack.  Click on any pic to enlarge, and hit ‘more’ for 32 additional drool-inducing pics from their line and all the specs…

2010 Fixie Inc BlackJack

  • 120mm rear spacing
  • revised geometry
  • revised SL stainless steel dropouts

For 2010 the Black Jack has been completely re-styled. In order to make a clearer distinction to its sister model, the Peacemaker, and to formulate the retro singlespeed/fixed gear theme even more clearly, numerous components have been refined. This includes the comfortable new Seagull handlebar, threaded headset and a height adjustable, polished quill stem. The lugged frame has been reworked and offers new geometry, SL dropouts and 120mm rear spacing. A special highlight is the top tube banderole in the form of a polished and brazed stainless steel plate. The colour scheme returns to the roots of the Black Jack as a timeless arrangement of gloss and matt black tones combined with mirror polished stainless steel surfaces. This is contrasted with the classic real leather saddle and bar tape – the quintessential retro benchmarks.

2010 Fixie Inc PureBlood

  • refined tubeset
  • new geometry with additional XS frame size
  • IDS dropouts and fork now with direct Postmount fittings

The Pure Blood Cyclocrosser has seen extensive revisions for 2010. Alongside new geometry and an additional XS frame size the decaling has been refreshed in homage to the Chiprace. The selection and forming of the tubeset has been further refined to achieve greater rigidity and a better riding performance. The seat tube diameter has been reduced to fit 27,2mm seat posts, increasing ride comfort. The proven modular IDS-dropout system (exchangeable dropouts for singlespeed or derailleur gears) has been improved with geared versions now featuring Direct Postmount (DiPS), allowing Postmount-disc brake calipers to be fitted without adapters. The DiscO fork has been correspondingly modified to allow DiPS use. For 2010 the Pure Blood will be seen with the brand new SRAM Force groupset and mainly black finishing kit.

2010 Fixie Inc PeaceMaker

  • world’s first Gates Carbondrive fixed/free Flipflop belt drive bike
  • newly developed JigSaw Coupler system
  • fixed fitting now possible without special tools
  • revised geometry
  • revised SL stainless steel dropouts

As a pioneer in this area FIXIE Inc. will offer the Peacemaker exclusively with the Gates Carbon drive belt drive. A hugely extended lifespan with zero maintenance, lower weight and a quieter drivetrain – these numerous advantages give a city bike such as the Peacemaker an even higher performance. Many new developments were required to realize this project: a new JigSaw fastening segment was developed in order to allow the belt to be inserted into the frame rear triangle without bending open the chainstay. With its special inner form the JigSaw can still withstand bending and torsion forces. The segment was consciously kept away from the main flow of forces – dropout-chainstay-bottom bracket, so as to not compromise these areas. In addition a new rear cog profile has been designed in conjunction with Gates Germany / Nicolai which allows fixed- and freewheel cogs and maintains an identical belt line in both modes. Using a new mounting standard, fitting a fixed rear cog no longer requires special tools. This increases the user-friendliness dramatically and reduces the risk of incorrect fitting. As the belt drive is wider than a chain the 135mm rear spacing is retained giving maximum rear wheel strength. The existing stainless steel dropouts have been re-engineered and thanks to new cut outs look even sleeker than before.

The geometry has been completely revised to achieve a balanced yet lively ride. The styling retains the basic colour “Ice White Shut” and adds blue decaling to accent the blue inside of the drive belt. The black anodized component package is understated and draws our view to the frameset. In spite of a higher price than last year the Peacemaker is still outstanding value for money.

2010 Fixie Inc Betty Leeds

  • refined tubeset
  • new geometry with 27,2mm seat post
  • Detail improvements to frames

The 2010 Betty Leeds features a host of subtle improvements. New geometry, a revised fork and new tube profiles optimise the ride and increase frame stiffness. The seat tube now accepts a 27,2mm seat post offering a higher level of ride comfort. The proven CNC SL dropouts remain unchanged. For 2010 the Betty Leeds will be seen with the brand new SRAM Force groupset, mainly black finishing kit and the usual classic, yet understated finish.

Mo’s Mallet

We share the same big love for bikepolo like you do. We believe that everybody enjoys playing for sure, but only a few of us do so in building a new mallet or replacing a worn mallet head by themselves. Therefore, we decided to produce bikepolo mallets modular constructed with standard diameters and head dimensions to keep any replacement a thing of a minute.
