Fix It Sticks- LAST DAY for KICKSTARTER BACKERS!!!

Today is the last day for the Fix It Sticks KICKSTARTER Campaign! If you haven’t heard of this product yet, you should probably start looking up bike blogs because all the cool kids seem to be digging on this product design. We know we are! fixitsticks

The bits of the Fix It Sticks are permanently fixed into place, so you don’t have to worry about loosing the pieces in a jersey pocket or on the road. The Sticks are lightweight and beautifully simple in design and function. Brian Davis, the designer, has spent many hours perfecting everything from materials to color to weight. The best part is, he’s based in Wisconsin and the sticks will be USA made!

We’ve decided to back his project and hope others do too. If you support his campaign, you’ll be one of the first kids on the block with some sweet new bike tools. Expect a full review of the product once it shows up in our mailbox. Other sites have pre-production models, but we want the real deal,  the available to the public, full production model.

To support Brian and the Fix It Sticks campaign, please click HERE. Word is that Brian is working on some other slick bike related goodies. We can’t wait to see what he has in store for the future!

p.s. There’s a little tutorial on how to make a holder for the Fix It Sticks out of a reclaimed bike tube. We got a sneak peak of one at the Brazen Dropouts bike swap…super sweeet.

Brazen Dropouts Bike Swap TODAY!

If you are in or near Madison today, don’t forget to stop by the Brazen Dropouts/Machinery Row bike swap! It’s one of the biggest in the state of Wisconsin and is not to be missed. We weren’t planning on going because of some prior commitments, but it turns out one of us will be able to make it.  With the weather getting close to 50 today, there is really no excuse NOT to ride over and check it out!

p.s. The Mad Rollin’ Dolls have a roller derby bout over at the Alliant Energy Center as well today. Two awesome ways to spend a Saturday 🙂
