Tokyo Fixed 2012 Frames - A bit of info...


When can I get my hands on one of these? 
Finally we have something to show you! Firstly apologies for the delayed delivery on these frames, last year we estimated delivery would be around February. We're long past that one already. Delays have mainly been due to problems sourcing materials. I still cannot say with confidence an exact delivery date, I can say the frames are in production and there is a good chance they will be in store for late April. 


Why were your last batch of frames out of stock for so long? 
Our last drop of frames was not enormous. We could have reordered but we felt it was important to respond to customer feedback asap. So we went back to the drawing board. We do not plan to do this every year, hopefully these frames our new frames will be in stock with us and TF dealers until we release updated models. 


What sizes will you be offering? 
We will be posting geometry's very soon. All frames will be coming in a much larger size range than last year e.g. all level top tube frames will be coming in 490-600mm in 2cm increments. 


More coming? 
We will be posting photos of our steel low pro and another steel road frame very soon! 

 

Dream Machine 2012 Model


This years Dream Machine has moved further into porteur territory. The top tube is now flat. The graphics are simple. And its still a jack of all trades in the city.

New 2012 Model - The DART


We kept things simple on this frame. Our goal was to design a frame which we could offer at a entry level price point but still rides hard. We've used a selection of oversized tubing to give maximum stiffness and designed the frame with a slightly compact geometry so you can get up ontop of the cockpit when you crank. The frame will come in one colour: black. Finally, we've added our own signature dropouts.

S2 2012 Model



The S2 is everything you should want from a lugged track frame. The geometry is comfortable yet still aggressive enough to be responsive and suitable for track use. This year the graphics are again an attempt to look as good as our favourite NJS frames, we have borrowed the colour scheme from 3Rensho. Other changes for the 2012 model include a move to double butted Cr-Mo from the discontinued Thron tubing and the introduction of our own cnc Cr-Mo dropouts.

S1 2012 Model



Last years S1 was modelled on Japanese Keirin frames but fell short of being an exact replica. This year we have not held back. We've attempted to replicate the tried and true steel Keirin frame geometry. The angles are steep, the clearance is tight and the fork had been left un drilled. To complete the experience we've used Columbus Spirit Keirin tubing. Frames like this are designed for the track but are best enjoyed on the street.

Wide Open 2012 Model


The Wide Open is our do-everything road bike (or an Audax bike, as it used to be called). Racy geometry and lightweight Columbus Zona tubing will keep the rider entertained at the weekends on longer rides.  When it comes to winter commuting the space for larger tyres and guards will keep you dry and comfy. Finally, load up some panniers, bolt on a rack and head off for a weekend touring - you may actually only need one bike, if it’s a Wide Open!
This bike was built up using Shimano’s ubiquitous 105 group. Light, strong and with a wide enough gearing range to climb if the bike is loaded up. Ambrosio sealed bearing classic looking hubs will roll smooth through all seasons.  A hand crafted finishing kit from Nitto, the Japanese manufacturing legend, makes for a understated, classy and high performance bike.

Tokyo Fixed Bespoked Bike - The Engima Everest




Tokyo Fixed are now stocking Enigma Cycles. We commissioned this frame from Enigma to show off their skills on a frame most fitting of their newest stockist. For the frame we chose Richard Sachs Newvex lugs which are reminiscent of British Nervex lugs with a American Sachs spin. Enigma chose light weight heat treated Reynolds 853 tubing for the frame, ensuring that even though the frame looks classic the frame will be lightweight. For the paint design we drew inspiration from vintage Japanese frames brands such as Everest and Tohei, who let the rich colours and stunning craftmaship do the talking. 
This frame shows the amazing skills of Enigma's head frame builder Mark Reilly as well as the skills of London based painter Matt Bown.

Vulpine Clothing & Feather Cycles


Vulpine might be the next big thing in cycling clothing. The clothing they have released so far is smart and functional. As is the general vibe of the brand. I met the founder Nick at Bespoked. There was one thing he was more excited about than his new brand; his upcoming stainless steel Feather build. You can hear a bit more about this build on Vulpines blog
And talking of Ricky, his bikes from Bespoked need to be seen to be believed. Head over to Ricky's blog to see a few of them. 






 

Tokyo Fixed x Eley Kishimoto Bike


You might have seen a few of these bikes hanging around our shop over the Winter. These cute little Dream Machines were designed in collaboration with Eley Kishimoto, a London / Japanese fashion house famous for their patterns and numerous collaborations with the likes of Eastpak , Cinelli, Death Spray Custom and many many more. Along with the bike Amy from Cyclodelic designed and made a pannier bag which you can see here. The bike was a lot of fun but took a lot of work, mostly from Tom Donhou who had the painstaking task of hand painting the bikes. A few of these bikes will be going to EK stockists throughout the world but are also available through us though the price is TBC. Wonderful!



 

Back from Bespoked


We just got back and are exhausted. Well done to everyone involved, especially event organizer Phil Taylor for another flawless event. There is good coverage of the event on RoadCC and Bike Radar as well as photos by myself.
