English McFetridge Project build

This project was almost 2 years in the making.  The idea was to build a bike that could do double duty as a CX bike but also as a city/commuter bike.  During the week the bike is fitted with large slick road tires and fenders, but on the weekend, drop the fenders and switch to … Read More

Read about our first Ace complete bike build.

Ritte’s Ace in the Hole

Ritte’s Ace, it’s new flagship model, will give you a card up your sleeve for your next ride or race. After riding several previous Ritte models we were naturally eager to get our hands on a frame and give it a turn of the pedals. The frame utilizes an identical geometry to its popular predecessor, the Vlaanderen, a … Read More

Parlee_Altum_Parent

Parlee Altum X-wing

Parlee’s new Altum is an amazing example of the companies ability to think outside the box and step out of its comfort zone. This custom painted Altum, lovingly dubbed the X-Wing, is a beautiful example of Parlee’s forward thinking designs. Ultimately though, despite all of its updated technologies and modern shape, the X-Wing is focused … Read More

Ritte_Road_Dura_Ace_Parent

Ritte Snob, A Stainless Affair

The Ritte Snob… is a snob. With its finely polished and tastefully painted nose turned up at “plastic” bikes everywhere, it’s classically elegant in a way that only steel can be. The paint is tastefully minimal, with bold lines and colors that don’t take too much attention away from its polished steel rear-end. Even the … Read More

Pivot_Mach6_Blue_Woz_Parent

Pivot Mach 6 Carbon “XXTR”

“Super light” and “long travel” are two attributes typically not used to describe the same bike. Given our reputation for the former, we wanted to see what we could do to change that. We considered this a special build; not one for the “oohs and aahs” of the showroom floor, but rather a bike built … Read More

18.7 Lamere Fat Bike

World’s Lightest Fat Bike, 18.7 pounds

Fat bikes aren’t generally thought of as light weight race bikes. In fact, most people who have ridden them will say that they are super fun to ride, but you almost never hear the words light, fast, or nimble used when describing these specialty bikes. For years, I had personally said that because I didn’t … Read More

Colnago_C60_Black_Parent

Colnago C60 Super Record

This is the third Colnago C60 we’ve built recently, and so far is our favourite. Personally I’m not always a fan of black on black, but in this case it works really well and is an elegant execution for black on black bikes. If this isn’t your style maybe the White on Black Colnago Italian … Read More

Festka XCr Stainless

When we discussed ideas for the relaunch of our blog, which you’re currently reading, one idea kept coming up. That idea was that while we wanted to showcase what we do here at Fair Wheel Bikes, we also wanted to show things that impress and inspire us. That idea brings us to this build from … Read More

Calfee_Suspension_Road_Main

Calfee Manta

Calfee’s Manta, first seen at Sea Otter in 2013, is a soft tail geared towards performance riders and racers. One intent of Manta’s 10mm of travel is that a rider who experiences less road vibrations fatigues less, and we all know that fatigue looses races. The other goal of a performance oriented soft tail is … Read More
