Fyxation just announced their leap to frames after growing as a parts-only company. With three new cro-mo 4130 frames – Quiver, Third Ward, and East Side – Fyxation’s now in the market for an entire bike. Availability is set for December.
The Quiver shown above is marketed as a versatile urban frame. It’s equipped with rack and fender mounts, a removable derailleur hanger, and removable cable stops. Spacing on the rear is 132.5mm with horizontal dropouts. A setup like this allows for a choice between 1×10 gearing, internal hubs, single speed, and fixed. Colors are black, white and silver and MSRP is set at $219 for frame and fork.

The Third Ward frameset looks to have the same geometry as the Quiver. It has all the same features, too, and 132.5mm rear spacing. The main difference is the lugged fork and threaded headset, both adding a flash of fixie style. Colors are black, white, a sparkly lime green and maybe some more that haven’t been announced. No pricing is set.
Also in the books is the East Side track frameset. It’s drilled for front and rear brakes and is built strictly for fixed and singlespeed with 120mm spacing on the dropouts. No word yet on the colors they’re going to make, or the pricing.
All the bikes lack headbadges. Fyxation plans on branding the seat tube with a badge instead, faced forward about an inch or two above the bottom bracket. For more details check out the 2013 catalog. They’ve yet to post these frames to the website.
