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.
In the fall of 2016 Fairdale had an opportunity to make road frames using custom drawn 3/2.5 titanium tube sets. Our initial thought was that it seemed like a fun R&D project to tackle, but that in the long run it probably wasn’t going to be very practical for Fairdale or our customers.
Titanium is a great material for high-performance bike frames, but the added cost is usually hard for us to justify over chromoly or aluminum when it comes time for production. However, since this would end up as very limited edition project, or maybe never even leave the prototype stages, we decide to go for it, knowing that it would still be an awesome learning experience.
If you explore Los Angeles a bit, you may notice some very large chickens posted up around town. They’re the work of Cache, an LA based artist from Guatemala. He has a penchant for bright colors, spray cans, and of course, bicycles.
Assuming you read French you’ll probably enjoy reading this review of the Goodship from En Danseuse. Alternatively it’s always a good laugh to let Google translate it for you. Thanks so much for the support guys!
