Recently, we’ve been getting a lot of people asking whether they should ride their bike fixed or freewheel. Well, I thought I’d take a second and give you my good ol’ two cents worth.

That’s right, y’all, that magical day of magnificent deals is finally here, good ol’ Black Friday.

Oh, what was that?  You were looking for some sweet sales to help with those post turkey blues?  Well, you’re in luck, ‘cause we have a whole cornucopia of discounts that are going to knock the stuffing right out of ya…check it!

I'm going to get something out of the way right at the start here; I like NASCAR.  And not in an ironic way, or a contrarian way, but in an "Oh-my-god-they're-racing-200mph-side-by-side-in-cars-that-sound-and-perform-like-they're-part-of-the-space-program" kind of way.  Actually, if NASA started to race rockets, I'd be on board too!

And after all, NASCAR and bike racing have a lot in common, take your average velodrome

I thought it would be a cool idea to do some posts showing off the custom two-wheeled machines we call our own here at Pure Fix HQ. Throw up some pictures and a little paragraph from each person explaining their own personal philosophy on cycling/life/whatever they wanted to whip together in five minutes and email me.

Fixed Gear FurnitureWhile playing around on the internet for work (yes, my job is awesome) I stumbled upon some sweet fixie inspired furnishings.  I thought I’d take the opportunity to show off some of the fixie furniture we have around the office here.

This weekend was filled with a lot of riding and a big first for a lot of us here at the office, our first time on a velodrome.

After meeting up at the Metro in NoHo, Jordan, Mike, and I all took the bike path out to the Encino Velodrome

This past year, we sent out a frame to artist Ryan Humphrey to paint up for us, and he made it look gooooooood.

Since I'm writing this blog, and no one has given this thing a name, I'm giving myself naming rights!

Our theme for this weekend: TWO FOR ONE.

TWO FOR ONE awesome wallpapers, and from now until monday, buy one tube GET ONE FREE!  Think of it as one for each day of the sweet, sweet weekend to come.

A few years back, one of the nicest guys we know got into one of the scariest situations any cyclist can face.  LA Weekly just posted an article about the whole thing, and it's definitely worth reading.

San Francisco Bike ExpoWe just got back to Los Angeles from a blast of a trip to San Francisco. If you missed us, we presented at the SF Bike Expo at the Cow Palace. Cow Palace? Cow Palace. That place is something else.

Get ready to take your night riding to a whole new level. After months of trials, we’ve perfected the GLOW, our newest line. The name says it all – it actually glows!
