Fixie Fanatics

Toejam this Saturday (11th August) hosts a day about Fixie bikes.  The grafitti in the jacks in The Bernard Shaw calls us ‘trend whores.  Whores yes, trendy no, all we know is that we like all the DIY efforts around town at the moment.  Some are commendable for taking frames that were chained to a lampost for the last 10 years and turning them into something that moves and some are just pure art.

The crux of this Saturday is that anybody who’s into this, from the novice who wants to know where to start, to the pro-couriers who will have their pride and joy on display, to the skinny jeaned trend whores will be able to come down and learn something or meet other like minded souls and talk all thing Fixie.

We will have workshops, fixie vids, a parts market and a best in show.  We will also have the Tour de France on the tellys, which will be at its mental Pyrennes mountain sprint stage.

The day will run along these lines:

Open 2pm
4pm: Fixie Workshop in smoking area w/ mechanic
4pm – 7pm: Market
4pm – 9pm: Fixie DJ Squad
9pm – Close Nic James (Toejam DJ)

Here are some local bike/fixie/messenger sites to check out too:

  3. Question: why is trackcycling.ie on your flyer? I’m pretty sure they haven’t heard of this event at all.

    Also love the bullshit, hipster comment about “taking frames that were chained to a lamp post for the last 10 years and turning them into something that moves and some are just pure art.
