2023 Fairdale Preview August 8, 2022

The day we’ve been waiting for is finally here. We get to share the new 2023 Fairdale bike line with you.

As always, we’ve kept Fairdale’s goal of making bikes that are enjoyable to ride at the top of our design boards. We love riding bikes, so we want to create bikes that you will love too… it really is that simple.

You can hop aboard a Fairdale and go bike-packing, head to a yoga class, pedal instead of driving to work, cruise to coffee, or take a focused ride that includes the big climbs. Heck, do all of those things! But remember, a good bike is fun to ride anytime. You don’t need a reason or goal. Hop aboard a Fairdale and let the pleasure of riding a bike brighten your day. Every pedal will make you happier, and that hard-to-put-your-finger-on sensation is what we build into every bike we make.

From the Macaronis all the way to the Nomads, we’ve got a bike for you. These new models are landing worldwide soon and will be arriving in the USA over the next few months.

Introducing our Fairdale x Toy Machine Project March 4, 2022

We’re stoked to present the Toy Machine X Fairdale project!

We worked with Toy Machine to create two extra special limited-edition bikes. A brainwashing Brown Lookfar (with our Skaterack assembly included), and a bloodsucking Red Macaroni 20″. Both bikes have custom Toy Machine art by Ed Templeton throughout, and you know we had to do a special skate deck with them (sold separately).  

Bikes are beginning to arrive in Australia, Japan, Germany, Denmark, France, UK, and Canada, and will be arriving in the U.S. shortly. More details soon…

Fairdale X Nora Vasconcellos August 13, 2021

Introducing the Fairdale X Nora Vasconcellos Lookfar!

We’ve teamed up with our friend and professional skateboarder Nora Vasconcellos for this collaboration bike. This limited edition (only 300 made) version of our Lookfar comes in Nora’s signature color and is adorned with her hand-drawn artwork. The seat’s art is a sublimated print taken directly from a one-of-a-kind griptape job that she made for one of her boards (note: the seat cover is not made of grip tape!). Enjoy some inspiration from Nora every time you take one of these Lookfars out for a cruise. It works great to cover a lot of ground while spot hunting too.

Bikes will be available at the following shops and markets in the coming weeks. Please try and secure one early. VERY limited bike availability and accessories will be in our online store soon as well. Stay tuned.

Fairdale Skaterack assembly sold separately.

Fairdale x Neckface Flyer October 28, 2020

We are proud to introduce the limited-edition Fairdale & Neckface Flyer. We started discussing this project in late 2019, and we are happy to finally release it.

Being a Fairdale owner himself, collaborating with this world-renowned artist was a no brainer. In the end, Neckface chose our Flyer model and gave it the Neckface makeover, complete with all new artwork and decals over a classic yellow with black bars and forks. Believe it or not, this is the first yellow Fairdale we’ve ever done.

Limited to 200 bikes worldwide.

NOTE: Bicycles purchased online are shipped partially assembled and require professional assembly. Proof of assembly (receipt) from a qualified bicycle retailer must be submitted with all warranty claims. Any claims submitted without a proof of assembly will be rejected.

Fairdale Over the Alps April 15, 2020

Dreaming of better days got me thinking that it was high time to finally put together the full story of our Over the Alps trip. Enjoy our little adventure from back when you could freely travel all over Europe by bike.

Taj Mihelich

Vans invited me to a BMX Pro Cup event in Stuttgart, Germany. With a free trip on my hands I decided to try and make the travel interesting by turning it into a little adventure. I convinced Chris Cotsonas from Fairdale Bikes to come with me. I know he likes riding bikes in the Alps since he took me there for the first time a few years ago (Bicycling Magazine Fairdale France trip). Our plan was to ride “Over the Alps” and then pick up the Rhine River Cycleway. This is a popular cycling route that follows the Rhine River from its start high in the mountains, across Europe, and all the way to the Atlantic Ocean. We wouldn’t be able to ride the entire route, but our goal of making it to Stuttgart was not too far off the trail, and it seemed achievable.
