Where it all began. The first fixed gear, steel framed Aphelion bicycle was created by our great grandfather.
Inspired by his passion, we have brought the original design into the modern age with our two signature finishes: The 1962 copper pearl and The 1962 sleek chrome finish. Both fixies are modelled on the original colours and materials from his vintage single speed frames.
The same care and dedication go in to making our single speed bicycles today. Each is handmade to the finest detail. Even our bike lugs are custom made to improve frame stiffness and durability, then meticulously painted to create our signature look.
Our bicycles are built like a race bike with the ease of an urban commuter. The fixed gear ratio of 46t -16t is perfectly balanced to pick up speed without the stiffness to power it.
All our bicycles come with drop handle bars to allow for a variety of riding positions adding to your comfort.
It is quick. It is smooth. It is everything you need for a commute or weekend ride.

Please note: All our bicycles are thoroughly checked prior to being dispatched and are shipped 85% assembled to prevent damage during transit. We recommend that the assembly is done by your local bike shop where it can be assembled, adjusted and prepared for your first ride. However, assembling a bike is quite easy and fun so we have provided a manual and the tools you will need in the box.
Please note: Colour may differ slightly from photos due to different monitor settings and/or photo lighting.
