2022 Fairdale Ridgemont April 26, 2022

When you’re on your way to the skatepark, but run into some homies along the way.

The Ridgemont is a bit of an oddball bike that we think is both practical and enjoyable. When the bike path ends, the Ridgemont keeps going with 2.0″ wide 27.5″ tires and stable MX bars. The laidback and rugged steel frame makes the bike both comfortable and strong. The hills are tamed by 8 easy-to-use gears that you pick with just one click of your thumb. Not a “normal” around town bike, nor a hardcore mountain bike, the Ridgemont is a bike that is simply fun to ride where ever you end up.

Gloss Black is available in Small/Medium and Medium/Large.
Purple Rain is available in Small/Medium and Medium/Large.

2022 Fairdale Weekender MX February 17, 2022

Rip through the weekend (or any day during the week, really) on the new Weekender MX.

The Fairdale Weekender Nomad MX’s nine-syllable name might not roll off the tongue, but it will roll over pretty much anything else with style. We based this bike loosely on some of our employee’s custom builds.

It has the massive range, and smooth shifting of the Weekender Nomad’s SRAM Apex drivetrain mated to our MX handlebar’s more upright riding position. The rugged Chromoly steel Weekender frame adapts to this fun-to-ride configuration happily and makes short or long rides a blast. This model is an in-house favorite, and we think it could be yours too.

The MX features the Weekender’s geometry that is built around 27.5 x 2.0” tires, and also leaves plenty of space for compatibility with 700c wheels if you ever feel like changing it up.

Matte Black available in Medium and Large.

2022 Fairdale Express February 7, 2022

The Fairdale Express is the perfect no-fuss bike to get you from point A to point B around town, Just ask our friend @smoovebert and @thewelshnoodle!

The Express is a bike that is not caught up in the bicycle industry’s chaotic technological race. The Express follows our mantra, “Keepin’ it simple keeps it fun.”

And, it doesn’t get much more simple than MTB riser style handlebars on a tough yet comfortable single-speed steel frame. Wide reliable tires and FSA cranks round out the durable build that you’ll enjoy riding long after the next cycling fad has come and gone.

Available in Matte Royal Blue in Small/Medium and Medium/Large sizes.

2022 Fairdale Lookfar December 23, 2021

The Lookfar will happily get you where you need to go. And, it’ll make you want to ride even when you don’t have to go anywhere. That’s the thing about a good bike; mundane commutes are fun, and riding for pure joy of riding a bike is a new pastime.

The Lookfar has 8 easy-to-use gears operated by one thumb shifter. Wide reliable tires are fast on the road and big enough to handle rough terrain. The Lookfar’s durable steel frame shares geometry with our Weekender model, known for its all-day comfort. Make the “getting there” part of a journey the best part onboard a Lookfar.

Gloss Toothpaste is available in X-Small, Small, and Medium.
Matte Black is available in Small, Medium, and Large.

2022 Fairdale Macaroni 20″ and 24″ December 10, 2021

There are lots of different ways to enjoy riding a bike, and it all starts here. Designed to create a more natural riding position for young riders, the Macaroni 20 & 24 open the doors to cycling.

BMX-inspired simplicity and durability mean the Macaroni is easy to ride and tough enough to keep on working. Carefully designed riding position allows young riders to feel balanced and confident. 2.4″ wide tires smooth out bumps, and adjustable components help the bike grow with the rider.

Gloss Bright Yellow available with 20″ and 24″ wheels.

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.
