With the Fixed Gear movement garnering more popularity than before, it too has now become the latest template for art, customization and collaborations.
Available as part of the company’s upcoming collaborative “Pressure” art exhibition featuring an array of Cinelli bikes built and designed by such modern artists as Barry McGee, Ashley Macomber, Clare Rojas, C.R. Stecyk III, Dan Murphy, DMOTE, Jesse Geller, Josh Lazcano, KAWS, Madsaki, Phil Frost, RVCA founder PM Tenore and Stephen Powers, the show will debut at RVCA’s flagship store in San Francisco on Thursday, June 19th and will be followed by a second September showing in Austin, Texas at cycling legend LANCE ARMSTRONG’s new bike shop, MELLOW JOHNNY‘S (so named for Armstrong’s cycling nickname derived from the French term “maillot jaune,” meaning yellow jersey), with more future tour dates to be announced. Limited to 50 pieces worldwide and available in three frame sizes (54, 56 or 58), the Barry McGee signature cycle will be available as 25 complete bikes and 25 frame-only kits with pricetags of $3,700.00 and $2,100.00 respectively, and will be available for sale only through RVCA and Mellow Johnny’s.
KL FIXED are always on a lookout for bike shops around town and we will share our findings with all of you. The first shop check on the list is The Bike Boutique. This shop stands out among the rest in town as it has a more lifestyle feel to the it. The store carries mostly Road & Mountain bikes, the norm among cyclists in this part of the world. The staff are super friendly and a big shout out to Benny for staying so late n taking the time to show us around.
Single speed mountain bike - we love the color
HED wheels!!! We would love to have one of these any day
The first proper bike fitting machine in Malaysia
Service area - fxi had some probs with his chain
A close friend's five figure road race bike
Bike storage area for riders that have limited space at home
We were also informed by Benny that the store also has a "Bike Spa" where riders can chill, take a nice shower after a ride or even have a dip at their swimming pool located at the roof top. All in all a very nice bike shop indeed, just not really catered towards us, the fixie bunch.
Nonetheless, the Bike Boutique is worth a visit and they are located at Damansara Perdana, right next to Citibank. Hit up their website for the address.
Up north where the country of a thousand smiles reside, the Bkk Fixed crew recently organized Thailand's first alleycat race. Riders from all woks of life turned up to participate or contribute in one way or another.
Kudos to our neighbors and we will show our support in the next event/s.
Anyhow, congrats to the winners of the race: 1. Tar 2. Joke 3. Ball
KL FIXED will be riding in KL as well this coming Wednesday 21st of May. This event is open to all who ride bicycles, so please join in for the ride. The ride is in memory of those who lost lives on bicycles and will be a slow group ride simultaneously around the world.
