At the core of bicycling is the simple and joyful act of balancing on two wheels. The physics of how a human being and a two-wheeled machine find harmony is exceedingly complicated but the sensation is somehow natural, intuitive and enjoyable. We keep that feeling in mind for every bike we design. Rather than burying the magic of riding under excessive technology and performance demands, we try to heighten the rider’s experience. Our high-end road bikes use the latest technology to enhance ride-quality and remind you that even the most grueling rides are fun. Our least expensive cruisers are not masquerading, watered down race bikes, they are purpose built around our motto “keepin’ it simple keeps it fun”.
We have some carefully selected upgrades to our existing bikes this year and we hope you’ll check out 'em out and see if there is one that’s right for you. Most of all we hope you get out and ride!
The Express is a fast machine for urban riding, commuting and fun. Don’t overthink or over-complicate the bicycle, just hop on an Express and ride.
The Flyer is a simple bike. That’s a good thing.
You won’t find finicky technology that needs constant adjustment, or a saddle position based on aerodynamic studies. Instead, you will find a bike designed to “just go for a ride”. The Flyer will remind you that just balancing on two wheels can feel magical.
The Lookfar makes cruising and commuting easy.
One simple trigger shifter changes the gears up-or-down through all 7-speeds. The bike’s 42mm wide Continental tires feel fast on smooth ground while still confidently handling rough terrain. It also shares similar proven geometry as our ever-popular Weekender model.
2019 Lookfar Drop
The Lookfar Drop is the perfect entry level gravel bike.
Building on the popular and practical Lookfar, the Drop version adds the multiple riding position comfort of drop bars. You can easily shift through the 7 practical gears via one up/down shift lever. Get in the drops when you are knocking out miles or chill on the brake hoods the leisurely neighborhood cruises.
“Let’s marry together all the proven, durable, simplicity that is a BMX bike with a frame size that you can actually sit down and pedal. Think of it as a bulletproof, easy-to-use cruiser that can also handle some real BMX action.” -Taj Mihelich
2019 Weekender Archer
One of the first Fairdales that we ever made was the Weekender. We envisioned a “light-tourer” that would work as a weekday commuter and a weekend getaway machine. Over the years we have refined the Weekender, but its focus has stayed the same. The riding position is comfortable for the long haul or an evening ride.
The Nomad version of the Weekender is made to travel.
While it can easily handle being a weekday commuter on rough city roads, it really shines when you take it for a long haul. The Weekender Nomad’s 100% 4130 chromoly frame and fork will welcome virtually anything that you can throw at it.
The Goodship is Fairdale’s top-of-the-line steel road bike. We set out to design a bike with race-inspired geometry that still retained Fairdale sensibilities. The bike is a mix of some tried and true technologies that have been paired up with some of the most modern manufacturing techniques and resources available.
One of the things we are most excited about is that the frame will be made using our seamless, Japanese, Drawnright tubeset. It’s a unique opportunity to have complete control over the butting, shape and size of each tube. Every Drawnright tubeset is also heat-treated to precise tolerances to further improve their strength and ride quality. The end result is a completely custom, high-quality 4130 chromoly tubeset that is specific to each size of the frame.
