Since we are getting close to production we will take in more orders soon.

Good news

The good news is that we very close to production only a few corrections and frame tested, before we can start the production. At the moment we do not have a precise deadline, but we will write it here as soon as we know.

New frames

Hi,

Here is the new frames that were painted last week. We have tried some different geometry in these frames just to see how it will works. But on the production model we will have the same as the white and the first “black” we showed.

We also painted one frame red just to see how it will look like, the other black is a special mat black that looks really cool!

Suggestions on the color of the parts? We think on the red one would be better with black or silver chain and maybe a black saddle to.

On the black frame: black or red chain and the cranks maybe black too.

Changes

Alot has happen since the last update of the bike. Mostly design improvements but also some new features. Like the docking mechanism.

The docking mechanism is super cool new feature that lets the bike stay together folded. It allows you to dock the wheels tougher “just by turning the handle bar” It has a spring locked mechanism that secure it to stay locked. When ever you want to unlock the docking you just turn the handle bar or roll the bike and push the front brake, when pushing the front brake it will automatically release the docking and unfolding goes almost out of it self. (Just like shown in the video)

 

Testing new parts

As you can see we have some new parts that we are testing. Most of the parts are set.
Parts we are still evaluation is:
-saddle
-pedals

All the rest of the parts choosen.

The new prototypes

We are still in the making of the newest production prototypes that we got from the sample parts. We have changed the front fork to a more slimmer one. more pictures will come of the new frames in 1-2 weeks. Please note that this bike show in the pictures was a redesign from the old frame used in the campaign while waiting for the new sample parts.

The new production prototypes that will come out in 1-2 weeks will have threaded front fork as mentioned before. Please comment what you think of the new bike!

The production steps

Next step is to order sample parts, test them out and when everything is ready we will make the full order. While waiting for the orders we will make the final adjustments, testing and welding jigs.

Changes and ongoing work

We have been working really hard with the development of FUBi fixie. We can now safely say we are about finished with that phase. We only have a few small things to change for the better.

We have also been in contact with some bike manufacturers to help us out with ordering the parts. We decided that the most of the frame modifications will be made in our own workshop to guarantee the best quality. We have made changes to make the bike better, but also changes so that it will be easier to produce but most importantly we have made the folding easier.

Here are some the  changes we made:

-New fasteners for the pivots

-Steadier and better functioning frame lock system

-Better diagonal stay mounts.

– Longer chainstay  (will not affect the folding size)

-We changed to conventional headset in to allow for a folding handlebar (upcoming update on the folding handlebar)

-Easier and better working folding system, so that the bike stays better together when folded.

-Quick release for the saddle.

 

We painted the bike a blue-black color just to see how it would look, but the final products will be a dark black for those who didn’t choose the white one.

Ps. The front fork will be same as in the original white FUBifixie, not the curved one as in the picture.

Let us hear what you think!

Best,
