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:

http://bricklanebikes.co.uk/gallery/

Does anyone know of a similar place in Zurich?

Thanks

These people
http://www.stadt-zuerich.ch/velowerkstatt

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
