Dublin Ireland based bike builder “Funked Up Fixies” creates bright customizable bikes in a variety of ranges and styles. They are a young company filled with passionate young and creative individuals that are into skateboarding, snowboarding, surfing and cycling. The fixed gear bikes they produce are built around the idea of low maintenance, urban suitability, and fun. The video below was produced by Wolf & Lamm for Funked up Fixies an features a sexy, colorful and dramatic spot all set to a soundtrack of French pop music. The look captures the vibe of the company and the product they produce in a somewhat cheeky fashion. One that would probably never make it on prime time TV in America. The clip has a great look, and just the right amount of humor to make it work.
Almost two centuries after it’s invention, the humble bicycle continues remain true to it’s roots while technologically advancing in design and materials. The 77|011 Metropolitan Bike from Rizoma is perfect example of this. It is a single speed fixed gear bike made from carbon fiber and billet aluminum construction. The materials used in the bike construction aid in keeping the bike light weight, and making sure the frame is extremely strong. The bike has softer lines with a slightly curved top, seat, and head tubes, and the attention to design detail is out standing. Simple clean lines combined with elegant geometry in the handlebar, crank, and seat assembly really make this bike stand out.
