Our custom build FABIKE C2 "Lakeview" fixed gear

by SBS

We are big fans of minimalism in design – so when a client from Chicago asked us to build a custom bike based on the Fabike C2 carbon frame and told us he wanted a fixed gear, we jumped on the idea to make unique and super light-weight machine.

We wanted to make something that would resemble great Italian luxury sport scars like Bugatti and Pagani. As the frame itself is black, we decided to add aluminum components and Brown leather as highlights. Our goal was to keep the bike as lightweight as possible, this is why we used CNC-machined components: 170 mm Five Star crank by Schindelhauer with ceramic bearings, Schindelhauer Urban pedals with titanium spindle, Fabike Aero V-brake, and GranCru brake lever. The seat post, stem and handlebar are all by Nitto. Bar tape and the Swallow saddle in antique brown leather are by Brooks England. Wheels are Velocity A23 high polished with DT Swiss 370 Track Hubs and Continental Grand Prix Classic tires with brown sides that add a cool finishing touch to the look of the bike. All components (seat post, saddle, stem, handlebar) are secured with Hexlox inserts, front and rear wheels – with HexNut.

Power transmission is with a Gates CDX Carbon Belt in red, front sprocket is 60T and rear is 19T – both by Gates, allowing for a ratio of 3.16.

Total weight is around 6 kgs making this a truly lightweight urban bike that is a very precise ride thanks to the Fabike carbon frame and fork.

It should be noted that the C2 frame allows great flexibility when it comes to customization – for example, for those who prefer geared bikes a 14-speed Rohloff hub and disc brakes can be installed easily making it into a truly versatile bicycle.
