As an homage to the classic “smokers” photo from the Tour of yesteryear, Kevin Dillard of Demoncats submitted this remake to the Fyxation photographer’s contest, landing him in the finalist list. See more at Fyxation.
Fyxation is extending their sponsorship reach to potential photographers. Here are some details as to how you could land it:
“Photos of cyclists and their gear have the ability to inspire us, but behind every great rider or gear photo is a talented photographer. We wanted to put together a contest for the person behind the lens. This is a chance for a select group of photographers to showcase their talents, win cash and gear and become a sponsored photographer for Fyxation.
How do I enter? Submit a portfolio of your work and a bio to [email protected] by July 4th. From these entries, we will select up to 10 finalists that will be eligible to compete for over $1000 worth of cash and gear.
How do I win? Once you are selected as a finalist, we’ll send you out free Fyxation gear for you to photograph or use in a video. You’ll then have 2 weeks to post your work to our Facebook page. Winners will be announced on July 18th.
What do I win?
1st place: $300 in cash / $150 in gear / Fyxation sponsorship
2nd place: $150 in cash / $150 in gear / Fyxation sponsorship
All finalists: You get to keep the gear we send out for photos. (As a finalist, you are also eligible for ongoing product sponsorship)”

Fyxation is on the move with yet another contest. This time, all you’ve gotta do is “like” their Facebook page to win one of their handlebar setups for 2012. Personally, I dig this flipped Alterra Cafe bar and yes, the photo has a little to do with it. Nice shot Pete!
Here’s a new video from Fyxation:
“The video is entirely composed of still photographs shot over two days in the studio and one day on the streets by Peter Diantoni of COG Magazine. Meticulous set up and lighting was required with the hundreds of component changes in the studio, and challenges of lighting and camera position on a moving rider. Special thanks to Milwaukee Bicycle Co. and State Bicycle Co. for donating bikes for the shoot; Ben’s Cycle for providing studio space; and rider Dan Mueller.”
Great photos Pete! As always!
Fyxation’s handlebar line is expanding the new Comet track drops:
“With a 40mm drop and available in black, white and sliver, the Comet Track Drop bar is at home navigating city traffic or going head to head in match sprints. The Comet track drop handlebar uses 6061 aluminum and is light, durable and strong enough to handle the demands of any rider.
– Clamp Diameter: 25.4mm
– Drop: 140mm
– Reach 80mm
– Width: 40, 42cm
– Weight: 395g
– Material: Double-butted 6061 T6 Aluminum”
These bars will be making an appearance in a new video shot by the guys at COG Magazine later this week.
