I knew that Tokyo Fixed was going through some concepts for a re-brand, but it wasn’t until seeing this post on the Independent Fabrication blog that I had heard anything concrete. Kinoko Cycles is the new Tokyo Fixed and while they’ll still obviously specialize in track and fixed gears, they’re opening up to high-end road as well. The way I see it, the more bikes, the merrier. See more of this Kinoko Cycles x IF Gravel Royale at the IF Blog.
The second bike in Tokyo Fixed’s 2013 line to be announced is the Trooper CX. Cross bikes are incredibly versatile. You can do light touring, gravel, road, dirt, singletrack and even race them in their intended arena and the Trooper looks like a worthy ride for all the above.
Check out more information at Tokyo Fixed.
Tokyo Fixed unveiled their new 2013 Dart track bike today:
“Most obviously, we’ve gone large. The headtube takes a 44mm zero-stack headset, and the top tube and downtube are similarly brutish. We custom sourced the tubing for this frame, no-one else is using tubes this big. This means the weight stays down, but the frame is unbelievably stiff; this complete bike is down to 7.8kg. Our team rider Jacob says it rides more like our S1 than the old Dart, the huge tubes imparting comfort as well as responsiveness.”

As far as collaboration jerseys are concerned, this one looks great and the entire kit ain’t too shabby either. Tokyo Fixed and Morvélo pulled together one rad cycling kit, which is now available on the Morvélo site. Check out the full kit here.
