Fyxation Six Fyx Six-speed Track Bike Conversion Group

Has your track bike jumped the shark? Do you have one too many track frames in the basement, and one too few geared bikes for getting around town? For roughly $300 you can give your 120 mm spaced track or single speed bike a six-speed makeover with the Fyxation Six Fyx group. The Six Fyx group uses a custom 120 mm cassette hub and short 6 cog cassette along with a 46 tooth front ring, an axle-mount deraileur hanger and Microshift bar end shifter and deraileur to give a track bike a speed boost. Not the gear range of a full cassette or usual road bike drivetrain, the 6 Fyx nevertheless gives you some gearing options for when the simplicity of the fixed gear drivetrain has worn thin. For the completist there is a matching front hub also available for a matching wheel build. The group ships with bolt on cable guides and only requires that you provide your choice of 9-speed chain to make it all work together. $300 for the kit with a pre-built rear wheel, $250 for it if you’re providing the wheelbuild and rim.
