Does this not make you think of Purple Rain? I’m guessing if Prince were on a fixed gear instead of that motorcycle, it might look something like this.
The bike shown above is Mixie’s Crisscross Mini F’Mixed gear bicycle. Mixie is part of a parent company names Scratch Tracks that mostly does electronics like bags with built in speakers, and unique retro electronic gadgets.
Mixie offers two models of Mini Fixed gear bikes that “Mixed Gear Bikes mash-up fashion and the fixed gear lifestyle into a format fit for all.” Essentially, flashy fixed gear bikes with BMX wheels. While there is some practicality to the smaller wheels for commuting – see Cannondale’s Hooligan, we’re not so sure the Mixie is the fixie of the future.
Check out their Straightedge Mixie after the break.
Above is the Straightedge in Vice Teal, although if bright colors aren’t your thing….
…they have some toned down options as well. Want one? You can order them up on Fab.com currently for $398 for any model. What do you think? Fashionable transportation or colorful flop?
