Summer Line Up

Twenty Nineteen! Holy smokes! Time flies when you're having fun. We're psyched for a fresh year. All new events in the works and a killer bicycle line up - it's going to be the year of the single speed and we can't wait to get you rolling!

Bicycle Comparison for summer 2019:

Rook One

Our OG commuter frame. This is the sturdy, throw anything at it, beast that started it all. We're not changing anything about this firm favourite. Hi-Ten steel frame and fork makes this kickass ride incredibly durable. Set up your ROOK ONE as an efficient commuter with a dual brake setup in freewheel mode or flip that rear hub, add some power straps and get your fixed gear shred on! This dynamic frameset is what you make of it and will last longer than you do!

Rook Race


The Rook Race V1 is a flex of our experimenting with different materials and manufacturing techniques. 6061 Alu frame and a carbon fibre fork makes this the lightest ride in the line up at just 2.3kgs for frame and fork. The Rook Race is designed for a city circuit. Slightly raised BB for confident fixed gear cornering, stiff chain/seat stays for responsive skids and Novatec hubs standard - the stock build is a lotta-bike for your bucks. The RACE series can be ridden as a commuter, but at heart its designed to be a fixed gear machine ready to mash through the urban jungle.
