POLOANDBIKE, fixed gear bikes Gijón

"We had the courage and defied all odds, we truly believed in our project and did all what it took to create a new FIXED GEAR brand proposition for the Spanish and European market, aspiring for global growth. On 2009 POLOANDBIKE was born.

As cyclists, we got caught on the freshness, youthfulness and the urban lifestyle of the fixed gear scene. We ended up creating one of the first brands specialized exclusively in fixed gear bikes, together with a complete range of bike components that the market demanded.”

Cinelli, fixed gear bikes

"Starting in 1980, Cinelli has been the first company to bring art into the world of bicycles. Over the years the company has had fertile relationships of collaboration with the world’s leading designers and artists.

(…)

With Mystic Rats (2009) and later with Gazzetta (2010) Cinelli has brought the latest revolution in the world of cycling to Italy, the fixed-gear bicycle: born for the track and reinvented by American bike messengers, the “fixie” represents a necessity for urban cyclists thanks to its unique qualities of lightness, speed and agility. It has become a “must” for all people with a bicycle “fixation”. With MASH (San Francisco, 2009) the firm has formed an alliance of steel with the historic California bike messenger group.”

Dodici Cicli, fixed gear bikes Milan

"Dodici cicli is a small brand born from passion to feed passion, we needed something that was not available and so we created it.

We needed transportation , we needed transportation designed for us and designed for our cities, we needed simple bicycles, with no need for maintenance , no noise in the graphic, plain colors, everything that is possible to clean out the bicycle we cleaned, we took away the gears, milano is a flatland, we took away the brakes, who need brakes when you can have fixed gears?

Yes, it takes some time and some suffering to start with it but we never seen anything beautiful that was too easy or came without any effort.

Back in 1910 people where riding bicycles like these.

We like things that are simple and things that least, so we started with steel and evolved with super modern ultimate stainless steel for cycling , we have a line of very minimal aluminum frames too, and we didn’t wanted fear anybody so there is a very funny two-wheeler with brakes but no gears.

We import anything we need for our kind of velocipedes, and we source anything we can from our home land, Italy.”

Dosnoventa bikes, fixed gear bikes Barcelona

"Last october 2010, Dosnoventa was founded in the city of Barcelona, as the result of the interest of two old friends and well-known city riders, lovers of quality products and with a large professional experience in the world of the fixed wheel.

The synergy that bonds them is what spurs them to the production of bikes, for themselves and for their friends, with the mission of offering their crew a great product using the best materials, with a very studied aesthetics, geometry and image, built by the best craftsmen but with a very competitive price.

The first frames are delivered and the brand quickly becomes a cult object and a local reference. Since then the Dosnoventa family won’t stop growing: a team of great riders is created to represent the brand, three models of frame came on to the market… But above all, a superb team working behind scenes for this project, sharing a lifestyle and a love for the urban culture, thanks to which Dosnoventa is now set up an reknowned for its quality, style and authenticity.”

Red Hook Crit Brooklyn 2014, fixed gear video New York

Heavy rain brought a tense day leading up to this year’s Red Hook Crit. Threats of cancellation and worries of increased danger on the course were relieved when the race finally started, 2 hours before its scheduled time, with a modified course and a shortened number of laps. Nevertheless riders came out in full force to battle the elements and each other.

Now in it’s 7th year, what started out as an informal birthday party for organizer David Trimble has become an international event. Hundreds of competitors from over 20 different countries descend on the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal in Red Hook to race on brakeless fixed-gear track bikes, and this year in the rain. The race is fast and intense, with only the strongest and smartest of riders able to overcome the fury and seize the title.
