Fyxation Bicycle Co

Fyxation Bicycle Co. has been designing their own line of bicycles and accessories inMilwaukee since 2009 and is is celebrating it’s 10th anniversary this year! While Fyxation's products are designed in Milwaukee, the brand can be found in bike shops from San Francisco to Switzerland. The brand was founded by local brothers Nick and Ben Ginster, who's passion for riding goes back to the time they rode together as kids.

After a successful 2017 Fund MKE campaign, Fyxation is looking to Fund MKE to assist in launching their 2020 line of bicycles. This funding opportunity will aid in bringing new models online, and provide stocking levels to get us ready for the 2019 sales season.
