I can dig everything about this photo. The Gonz, Andy from FYXO, coffee and Campagnolo. Head over to FYXO to see more of this unique coffee tamper. Talk about a Campy fan’s dream tool!
Nobody knows Eddy like Andy White from Fyxomatosis, so when Khalil contacted Andy for a one-of-a-kind MXL, he went overboard. Custom FYXO livery, custom FYXO decals, custom FYXO everything. Or as Andy puts it “no corners cut, no bullshit treatment“. This Merckx Mondays is a dedication to those who do it right. Andy, this is amazing.
Right now, when you spend $50 or more at FYXO, the shipping is free. Even to Canada! That even includes frames. Not a bad deal. Head over to take advantage of this offer because it ends August 30th. Oh, he’s got more of those Campagnolo FYXO DT shifters in stock… even pairs!
There are a lot of so-called “restoration experts” when it comes to bicycles, but as far as I’m concerned, there’s only one. Andy from FYXO teamed up with Busyman and Shifter to bring you one of the best Colnago Mexico restorations out there. Head over to FYXO to see the full scoop and make sure there’s extra salt.
There are some benefits to dating a “bike blogger” but there are more benefits to being friends with Andy from Fyxomatosis and Dan from Shifter Bikes. When we were in Melbourne, Andy had this beautiful Casati Ellisse road frame hanging up. I took one look at it and knew it had to be Lauren’s. We haggled, arm wrestled and played a few games of hangman over the cost and eventually came to an agreement. What went from a Chorus build turned to a C-Record build and then, to top it off, Dan offered to build it up, prior to shipping it out.
Weeks passed and Lauren’s bike showed up on a Saturday morning. I put it together and made sure it fit. After a quick test ride, she was ecstatic. Tomorrow we’re going to go get her fit for some road shoes and Sunday will be its first ride in Austin. I think it’s safe to say, we’re both thrilled with this bike. How could you not be? Ti Grammo Art stem, C-Record, Ambrosia wheels? Life’s too short to ride shit bikes.

This was a nice surprise in a rather large package that arrived from Australia the other day… More to come. Now what to do with it?

When we were in Melbourne, I came across this Casati in Shifter Bikes. It was a perfect fit for Lauren and since she had been looking for a road bike, I had to try to work out a deal with Andy to get it for her. Months later, the beast is built up for the beauty and Andy gave it some lens love before packing it up and shipping it out. Check out more lovely photos here!

The 2012 Melburn Roobaix is coming and like a great event organizer, Andy’s doing all he can to promote this event. All I’m going to say is, if you can make it, DO. Lauren had a blast last year and I’m sure you will too. Don’t be intimidated by Nic’s legs here. She’s not going to be able to attend this year… So you’ll still have a chance at winning the group ride.
That said, the Fyxomatosis Melburn Roobaix kits are now available. Swoop one up while they’re still hanging out.
