Fairdale was just up at QBP’s Frostbike show (a show for bike shops folks to see the new products). Check out the above photo and more of the fun in an awesome photo gallery over at Prolly Is Not Probably’s blog. We showed off this Taj frame and fork built up with a bunch of great Odyssey parts. QBP is now carrying the Taj frame + fork as well as our Skaterack. Actually so is BTI! Complete bikes (and our full range of products) will continue to be available to bike shops through Full Factory.

A preview of the Goodship January 23, 2014
We have a new bike coming out towards the end of this year called the Goodship. We’re pretty excited about it so we thought we’d share a little preview on what will be our flagship machine. We set out to design a high-end steel road bike with a 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 design elements we are excited about is our new Drawnright tubeset. Each size of the Goodship will have a special seamless, Japanese, 4130 chromoly tubeset that is custom drawn and butted to our exact specifications. 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 chromoly tubeset for each size of the frame.
NEW MODEL: UK Spec Coaster January 21, 2014
Announcing a new bike…sort of. The folks who bring Fairdale to the UK, Triton Imports, asked us for a special edition of our popular Coaster bike which we are calling the UK Spec Coaster. Although this bike will primarily be aimed at the UK market we will also bring in a handful to the USA in spring time. The UK Spec Coaster is essentially the same as the normal Coaster but with a few minor tea drinking inspired changes.

Weekender Review from Footdown.co.uk November 11, 2013
The Foot Down put up a great review of the Weekender OG. If we can say anything about our bikes we’d like it to sound a bit like this: “This bike made my summer, I went places I never could have gone on my other bikes. In a single day I have taken it shopping with the rack on, commuted to work, cruised along the sea front and taken it into the wilds of Gower loaded up with camping gear. It’s a bike that does it all provided you don’t want to race, though you can drop a kid on an estate easily, little buggers.”
