Seattle company MiiR was founded two years ago with a focus on creating reusable, recyclable products that give back to the community in some way.

Remember when your mom used to send you out trick-or-treating with a couple of glow sticks in hand to make sure you were seen by cars? Pure Fix Cycles has taken it one awesome step further by creating an entire glow in the dark fixie that will have you radiating neon light for your entire ride home.
New Los Angeles company Retrospec Bicycles offers affordable fixies in 10 color combinations to match any style.

Jeff Tiedeken and Dan Berlant, the duo behind Monkey Likes Shiny, have created a new gadget for all of you fixie riders.

Now you can be fully prepared to change that flat without having to carry an entire tool box with you.
For those of you that saw our Create Bikes post the other week and were wondering why you can't design your own fixed gear bike in North America, Urban Outfitters is now giving you the chance.
