I have worked at bike shops for about 3 years before scoring a sweet gig here at Fairdale Bikes. Even before working here I had my eyes set on a bike with capabilities like the Rockitship, but one thing was missing. As lovely as the stock ENVE fork is, I craved more carrying capacity so I can #getoutthere. I ultimately wanted a bike that can tackle trips like the Oregon Outback Trail without compromising comfort or the amount of gear I can carry.
This is where my friend Carlos from Dark Moon Fabrications comes in. Carlos made me a custom segmented steel touring fork with similar geometry to the stock ENVE fork, but with a bit more rake to handle front loaded touring. All the parts are gathered from companies that love and shred bikes just like you and me.
This Rockitship is ready to take on the long hot dirt climbs we have here in Southern California and beyond.
Our friend Anthony Bacon from Rhythm Bike and Board just built up a new 52 cm Rockitship frame and fork with 650b wheels. Lots of folks ask us how this wheel size will work on the Rockitship so here you go!
In an effort to simplify purchasing for our fans worldwide, we’re happy to announce that you can now buy Fairdale Bikes direct from our website. If you’re looking for a sweet new bike, frame/fork kit or accessories but don’t have a local Fairdale dealer nearby, visit our Bikes page. You’ll find that our bikes are available to ship to most markets, but if you’re in a city that has strong Fairdale representation you’ll be directed to one of our local shops for the best possible purchase and service experience.
If you have been after a new Fairdale but you’re having difficulty finding one, you can now come straight to us.
Our Goodship complete bikes are now available in our store for easy purchase. We’ve also greatly reduced pricing on remaining previous models. If you’ve been thinking about getting a high end steel road bike, now is a great time. Choose from Orange, Electric Blue, or Surf Blue.
At the core of bicycling is the simple and joyful act of balancing on two wheels. We keep that feeling in mind for every bike we design. Please click through the flipbook for a quick look at the 2018 line.
We have a handful of new models this year along with carefully selected upgrades to our existing bikes. We hope you’ll check out our bikes and see if there is one that’s right for you. Most of all we hope you get out and ride!
2018 Fairdale bikes will be in shops this month. Full spec and detail shots coming soon.
