Pure Fix Launches two new models, Plus Pure City commuter line up

Keirin-pro-alloy

Pure Fix offers several different direct-to-consumer track frames, complete bikes, wheels, and accessories, for reasonable prices. They’ve recently expanded their product line to include two new fixed gear bikes, as well as a whole new sister company – Pure City – which is focused on the commuter market.

Their new high end track frameset is the Keirin and Keirin Pro, which retail for $199 and $229 respectively. The alloy finish, pictured above, boosts the price by $26.

The entry level frame weights 5 lbs 14 oz, while the higher end frame shaves 10 oz, and weighs 5 lbs 4 0z. Both frames are constructed from hydro-formed 6061 aluminum, and designed to perform around town, or in the velodrome. The difference is that the Pro model features triple butted construction, while the standard model is only double butted.

Both frames include a 27.2 seat post clamp, integrated headset, and are available in one of four sizes – 49cm, 52cm, 55cm, and 58cm.

The $450 complete bike is available in three different sizes: 50cm, 54cm, and 58cm. The rear hub is a flip-flop design, so you can ride single speed or fixed.

Pure City 3 Speed VineCommuter Models Pure CityThe latest venture from Pure Fix is Pure Cycle, which now offers six different commuter oriented models. From classically inspired frames to step through/dutch style/mixties, there is one bike that should appeal to everyone in the current line up.

The bikes are available per customer order as either a single speed, internally geared Nexus 3 speed, or 8 speed Shimano Acera with a 12-32 cassette. Each bike is finished with matching leather saddle and grips, fenders, rear rack, kickstand, and reflectors – everything you need for the street.

As with all their bikes, they are sold direct to consumer with a one year warranty, which is only activated if the frame is professionally assembled at a local bike shop.

Uh, they are also offered through IBD’s. Might want to correct that.

The Keirin track frames came out several months ago…was this a press release that got lost somehow?

Those commuter bikes are rad. And a sweet price too!

Purefix is only slightly above walmart in quality. I work at a shop that sells them. They’re awful.

Megalized. I beg to differ. I also have a shop that sells Pure Fix and sells a lot of them. The quality is actually very good. We have sold more than 1000 of these bikes since we started with them and rarely does a bike come in with any issues. We do check BB and make sure that the wheels are tru. It is also rare a customer comes back with an issue on these bikes and if they do Pure Fix takes care of is ASAP.

Yes I am sure that if you spend twice as much you will get a few more bells and whistles but the price and quality of Pure Fix has been great for us and our customers.

Megalized is right. These bikes are awful, and yes, barely Walmart quality. If an IBD actually sells them, it reflects extremely poorly on them, and the level of quality that they consider acceptable, IMO. They’re just abysmal bikes, and an embarrassment to the industry.

almost 6 Lbs for a alloy frame? Hopefully that includes fork weight. I’ve got to agree with Megalize on quality. These bikes are better than Sole or State from what we’ve seen but not by much.
