Get Fixed! Exclusive distributor of Focale 44

Focale 44 is the new single speed brand from French BMX company Superstar. Superstar has been making top quality BMX frames and parts for a few years now and Focale 44 shows the same emphasis on style, design and functionality. Three words. WE’RE LOVING THIS. That pretty much describes the feeling about the new designs from French BMX company Superstar who have released a couple of ‘urban’ bikes under the brand of Focale 44 true to the fixie image. The first range of bikes and parts will be available in Singapore in June 2010 and features two complete bikes – Noble & Relax, and selected parts. See below for photos and specs or check their page atwww.focale44bikes.com

The bikes themselves have an extremely simplistic design however we were interested to see that they don’t come with straps or clips which is a bit disappointing for an off the shelf bike (if you prefer to buy that way). The bikes are a lovely shape which will be great for all the hipsters wanting to get their hands on one of these babies…

The Relax complete bike
The Relax can be described as an “easy rider”, with a flat bar/stem combo and easy 42/16 gear ratio. The Relax has a flip-flop rear hub with the option of a 16T fixed cog or 16T freewheel, which can easily and quickly be swapped around and comes with front and rear brakes, just in case you need them. You also get Wellgo plastic BMX pedals, plastic saddle and Kenda tires. Colours are matte swamp green or matt grey for the frame, fork and bar/stem combo, clear orange pedals, gold hubs and all the other parts are black.

The Noble complete bike
The Noble is a little more serious, drop bars with grips on the lower section and a faster 46/16 gear ratio. As with the Relax you get the option of a flip-flop rear hub with a 16T fixed cog or 16T freewheel , optional brakes as well as Wellgo plastic BMX pedals, plastic saddle and Innova tires. Colours are matte black for the frame, fork and bar/stem combo, white of the pedals, grips and tyres and black for everything else.
