"Sensible Shoes"

Fixed Gear Ensembles
& Wheelbuilding
at Yellow Jersey

We build professional track racing bikes for both sprint and pursuit and we've been doing that for over thirty years so we know how to do that right.

More popular, however, is a fixed gear layout for commuting and training. For that, you don't absolutely need top professional equipment. In fact, clincher tires, a front brake (or a pair) and toeclip pedals are often preferred over a real Keirin or Pursuit setup for city riding.

We can build as you wish. Our suggested basic urban fixie build runs roughly $550 on your frame with quality durable equipment. Some equipment changes over time but you get the general idea. This is fairly typical of the bikes we ride to work ourselves in winter. When you're at a stop sign next to a messenger, take a look at her bike. Looks a lot like this, doesn't it?

As always, we'll listen to your preferences, we're very amenable to options not listed here (and we probably have the equipment you prefer in stock today!). We had to start somewhere but there's a wide range of taste. If you happen to have a saddle or a front wheel lying about we can work with your gear and adjust the pricing . You may as well use those toeclip pedals or the stem your roommate gave you. A good commuting bike just doesn't need to be expensive to be fun and dependable!

  • From a happy Gunnar owner
    "First let me tell you that I love the Campagnolo Veloce/Centaur group that you sold me in June for my Gunnar Sport. I love the Sport as well but part of my enjoyment of the bike is how well the components function. Also the wheels Aerohead/Centaur hub that you built are great. I am commuting on them along with other rides and they have performed flawlessly and I haven’t touched them at all in over 1,000 miles"
