FYXO: Woods Point Epic
wp-50-900x597


Photo by Andy White

This is by far, my most favorite FYXO photo ever and this is one of Andy’s greatest long tales:

“Many have tried to replicate this ride, some with success, some with failure, none without awe of the surrounds of this part of the world and the challenges it presents when it’s just you and your bike.

I look back and think ‘did I really do that?’. Particularly day one’s 200km+ on dirt, sand, rock on a singlespeed CX one gear without an iPhone – yes, this post is that old.

These posts have inspired many to get out on there bikes and push limits and find new roads, surely helped popularise ‘gravel grinding’, yondering and whatever the hashtag of the moment is, but in truth it’s just #ridingabikewithmates.

The words of this story remain unchanged, though I’ve stitched the three day / three post report from 2009 into one. Lily Allen still puts me right back in the Eildon pub every time I hear it.”

If you could hear and smell this post, it would be the complete experience. Instead, you have to rely on words and photos. See more at FYXO.

FYXO: The Power of Art
lotdeux-4-1190x790-655x434


Photos by Andy White

This photoshoot took place on one of the nicer days during my last trip to Melbourne and I’m not sure who was more stoked on the sun, Andy or Adrienne. Everything about these two photos rules, from the pristine Somec Promax with Campy 11, to one of the most friendly women I’ve met through a mutual love of bikes and the lens of Andy White… You just can’t go wrong.

In fact, seeing Andy’s use of Athena 11 made me finally pull the trigger on a modern upgrade for Lauren’s Casati.

FYXO: Second Chances

Photos by Andy White

This 1974 De Rosa was in need of some love. Turns out, Patebury‘s leatherwork makes classic Italian race bikes look even nicer. But we all know, it takes a great photographer to make a great bike look exceptional. Go see more at FYXO!

All This Talk About Australia

Has me missing it! This day was so incredible on so many levels. I was excited to be riding new roads and we ended up rescuing a Wedgetail Eagle. These photos are from a lost roll of film I just found from Australia. Read up more on this ride, right here.

FYXO: Best Friends Forever

Andy from FYXO has quite the stable of bikes. In fact, I may be the only living American to ever visit his “man shed” and it’s pretty rad. This bike however, is my all time favorite. Classic Australian steel. See more of Andy’s Llewellyn at FYXO!

FYXO: Black Campagnolo Croce D’Aune Deltas
BLACKMETAL

Talk about a brake with an evil reputation. Incompetent people claim they don’t work. Lovers of vintage Campagnolo worship them but few have had their cycling mitts on a set of Croce D’Aune Delta brakes. FYXO has a set of these in his web shop for sale. They’re so evil, I had to crucify them upside down.

Cast your $666.00 at FYXO.
