Fyxomatosis: 2013 Melburn Roobaix Portraits
Melburn_02

Andy White of Fyxomatosis knows how to throw a great party. Year after year, the Melburn Roobaix continues to grow both in numbers and in reach. People come from all over the world to take part in the two wheeled party. It’s not a race and it’s not exactly a ride, it’s just a good time!

See for yourself how stoked people are at the Melburn Roobaix portraits page!

Fyxomatosis: Carrefour Jersey
MEL_Mamiya-16

One of the best FYXO jerseys is now available. Introducing the Carrefour.

“French for crossroads / intersection.  This design is a collision between FYXO colours and the Mapei cubes synonymous with Paris-Roubaix thanks to their doping dominance in the 90s.

Melburn’s cobbled back alleys are thousands of miles from the stone farm roads of Northern France, but at speed and with the ringing of cowbells, the bumpy experience is the same.

If you are ever at the crossroads, always go North.  Hell awaits you.”

Pick one up here!

Full Circle
prolly03

It should be “Full Backwards Circle”.

Ride whatever you want, when and how you want to. I think that’s the moral of the story here. Thanks to FYXO for the impromptu photo shoot. Check out more words and photos at FYXO.  Oh and to the assholes who stole my bag in SF, die. I’m going to miss those jeans and that t-shirt.

Merckx Mondays
sellaitalia09

Well, my Memorial Day has wound down and as I get back to the swing of the work week, I thought I’d kick it off with a nice Merckx Mondays from Fyxomatosis. Well, technically, this one’s from Patebury, an Aussie leather shop. Rather than track down another NOS Sella Italia RS saddle for an Eddy Merckx Professional that Andy’s building, he contacted Patebury to see how close they could come to making one… it looks damn nice!

See more photos at FYXO.

Fyxomatosis on How to Customize
FAUXNAGO

Andy’s mantra “life is too short…” might be misinterpreted by those who take things at face value. It’s not a slogan for the rich, or the people who believe you can buy style, it’s the m.o. for the ones infected. A disease if you will. This disease causes you to tinker, to strip down, rebuild. To customize…

Like Andy, I myself get emails all the time from people wanting a $200 bike and occasionally, someone wanting to splurge $900 on a custom fixed gear. Now, don’t mistaken “custom” for hand-built and tailored. Custom can mean anything, really and for a perfect example, you really ought to head over to FYXO for the back story on how he built his ‘Nago for $935.

MelburnOut Randomness
Wheel building

When I’m in Melbourne, it’s always a pleasure to meet new people and see some incredible bikes. This go round, I walked almost everywhere with my Mamiya, shooting portraits and other bits of randomness. I finally got all my negatives scanned and they came out great. So let’s waste away the lazy Thursday afternoon with a full-loaded Gallery… Also, a lot of these are sitting in print form at Shifter Bikes, so if you’re in there, swing through a pick up your print.

Check out some narrated photos in the Gallery!
