Fyxation just turned 10 and to celebrate they are having a number of "X" edition releases coming out this year, and The Hub has a full size run of them! The Eastside X is a tribute to the first Eastside we originally launched in 2013 and is an all matte black fixed gear/single speed designed to ride fast, last long and turn heads.
Don't mess with a classic! The matte black Eastside was the first bike Fyxation ever produced. Even though the brand is known for their love of colors, the matte black Eastside is the most popular selling model. Using a strong matte black paint scheme, the signature Divide stripes and decals are gloss black giving this bike a subtle yet inviting look. Built with all black parts and of course Fyxation parts, the new Divide Series Matte Black Eastside is a great choice for any rider.
Fixed Gear or Singlespeed:
We set this bike up on our salesfloor as a single speed so you can coast, but it can very easily be converted into a fixed gear by simply rotating the rear wheel using our flip-flop hub. Single speed bikes make a ton of sense in most urban and suburban areas. They are affordable, easy to maintain and repair and make great commuter and get around town bikes. Fyxation bikes are geared for city riding so even with one gear you can cruise around town with ease.
The Matte Black Eastside is built using 4130 chromoly steel for both the frame and the fork which means this beauty is light and strong. We use only sealed bearing hubs in our wheels which gives the Eastside a smooth ride and is something you typically find in higher end track and road bikes. The Matte Black Eastside uses our go anywhere Session 700 tires which were originally introduced by Fyxation in 2009 and are known around the world for their durability and longevity. Finally, all Fyxation bikes ship with front and rear brakes! While this may seem silly to point out, most fixies and singlespeeds on the market ship with only one brake which is both unsafe and forces you to spend extra money adding parts after your initial purchase.
