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.

2022 Complete Bikes July 7, 2021

At Fairdale, we love all things BIKES; riding them, designing them and watching other people get to enjoy them! Whether you’re commuting to work or cruising to your favorite coffee shop, we enjoy making a bike for you.

For 2022 you can expect more great bikes that are approachable, reliable, easy to maintain and always fun to hop on and go for a ride. The new line features all of the models you have come to enjoy from Fairdale in exciting new colors with some spec updates sprinkled throughout.

In addition to the popular Macaroni bikes and mainstays like the Weekender Archer and Nomad, we are re-introducing the Weekender MX into the line. The Weekender MX is a fun and practical BMX inspired bike and 100% Fairdale.

The Taj is still built around fun 27.5” wheels and comes in a rad Trans Winter Blue finish. Our Lookfars and Ridgemont (formerly the Flyer) will be running on smooth 8-speed shifting and have that familiar Fairdale styling that is sure to turn heads.

We hope you’ll enjoy riding our bikes as much as we loved making them for you. Have a great ride.

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.

2021 Fairdale Bikes April 22, 2020

Welcome to Fairdale 2021! We’re excited to share all of our new bikes with you.

We are continuing to build on our goal to make great bikes for people who are seeking out the simple pleasure of just getting out there to enjoy a ride without any hassles or lofty expectations. Reliability, ease-of-maintenance, and fun are always the key starting points for our new lines. You can expect to see thoughtful touches employed throughout that have helped us to achieve our goals again.

An all-new model that you’ll be sure to notice is the Macaroni 24. This is a simple and reliable 24” design for kids 7-12 years old that is based on our original 20” Macaroni. These bikes are a joy to ride, and as always, they are easy for kids to maintain. You’ll also find freshly redesigned Flyers and Tajs that have been built around using rugged and fun 27.5” wheels. Our Lookfars and Flyers will be running on smooth SRAM 1x 8-speed shifting and have that familiar Fairdale styling that is sure to turn heads.

Some of our long-running favorites like the Weekender Archer and Nomad make use of bold new finishes on functional and adaptable frame designs. They can easily fit bigger tires and different wheel sizes. The Express is a classic, and it returns in a beautiful new finish with the stress-free simplicity we’re all fond of. Just like the rest of our 2021 lineup, it will leave you with an ear-to-ear smile every time you pedal out to town.

Built to last, we know that you’re going to love riding the new Fairdales. Have a great ride!

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.
