Anyone know of a custom bike shop to build a fixie in Zurich
 
I would like to create a custom fixed wheeled bike for commuting to work in style baby! In London there are some excellent shops for this such as:

Does anyone know of a similar place in Zurich?

Thanks

These people

Not only build cool bikes, but also provide valuable employment for disadvantaged.

You might find it cheaper to import from London.

Some nice stuff there, even if I don't buy here it'll help to inspire my own design. Thanks

When I saw the thread title, I was also going to respond by posting the "Performance" video. Here's some great lines from it:

"So I can pedal with efficiency,
Don't mess with my cadence!"

"You think it makes you look like a courier,
It really just makes you look girlier."

Does anyone know what brand of shades the hipster is wearing? Are they some limited edition classic ray bans? I want.

Oh no, the hipster fixie trend has finally hit Zurich....Brooklyn and London is one thing but have fun taking that thing up the hills in Zurich.

There have been a few around for a while. Like mine in 2006, till I realised it took the fun out of cycling.

Most of the urban hipster fixies that I see being walked over the Hardbrucke are actually singlespeeds, you get the fashion looks, without the need for da skillz :p

bah hardbrucke is nothing, hardbrucke to oerlikon, now that is a fun climb especially for a fixie.
