Fixed Gears invades Answer Rove DJ Stem & ProTAPER® 720 AM!

Initial Reaction: Answer Rove DJ Stem & ProTAPER® 720 AM

Got awesome package from Answer ( @Answerproducts ) today. Remember the Rove DJ stem I posted about earlier? Well that came, along with a pair of Answer’s new bars, the ProTAPER® 720 AM. Such an improvement over my previous cockpit. The bars feel a lot lighter and they look a lot lighter too. The tapers on these, along with the slight 4° up sweep, makes them look like a 25.4 bar. They’re not though. 31.8 all the way. Paired with the Rove DJ stem’s wide clamp bite, it’s one solid bar / stem combo.

Check out some more shots below…

50mm length. The nice thing about the stem is the actual stem body is thin, allowing even a short stem to maintain a nice proportion on the bike.

61mm wide faceplate, giving it a super stiff bite.

Clean machining too! The stem comes in a pewter finish, with 4 faceplate color options.

I chose black. Super stoked on this setup. Thanks to the guys at Answer for hooking it up!

Exclusively available at Tionghin, in store now!

Focale 44 is proud to introduce one of the first (If not the first) polo bike so far: the Polo bike. Yes, the bike name is so obvious that you instantaneously know what it is all about.

Mainly with one of the crew: Théo Guerry. Starting from a Full Moon bike (Focale 44 first bike of the range), the following parts are changed to make it polo-ready. You can also take a look at the video below for more information on Bike Polo…

Fixed Gears From Focale 44 are here!

Proving that the fixed gear trend is most certainly international, French firm Focale 44 has released two more models to their bikes range. These fixed gear bikes – Full Moon (Black), Relax (Grey/Gold), Noble (Black/White) and Revolted (Red/Black) feature the stripped-down amenities that fixie fans adore – basic colors, simple handlebars and, of course, no brakes. The Focale 44 fixies come in two iterations, the first being a classic track bike layout with curved handle bars, the second being a street-minded commuter with a straight handle bar. These bikes are available now at our store, so what are you waiting for?

Full Moon is one of the newest modern/classic bike released by Focale 44 at affordable price range. Every Full Moon bike is delivered with brakes, freewheel and fixed sprocket. You can choose your riding style.

The Relax can be described as an “easy rider”, with a flat bar/stem combo and easy 42/16 gear ratio. The matt grey edition and gold finish give the bike a nice fancy with mixed modern-classical design frame and fork.

The plain black-white combination looks just great. The Noble is a little more serious, drop bars with grips on the lower section and a faster 46/16 gear ratio. The “Noble” is a perfect bike for those who like it clean.

Revolted is the one of the newest top notch modern/classic bike released by Focale 44 with Superstar revolte BMX stem, and narrow raised alloy handlebar.

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

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.
