Pure Cycles started as a start-up company when a group of college students wanted to build the perfect campus bike.
The California-based company is known for its visionary designs that take into account what riders and commuters are looking for in a bike.
PURE FIX Bikes - OUR REVIEWS
Who is Pure Cycles?
Founded six years ago in a dorm room, Pure Cycles is the brainchild of Austin, Jordan, and Michael. After spending time looking at the empty bike racks on campus, they started asking students why they weren’t riding. They found common themes in the answers they received- people wanted bikes that were affordable, simple, and looked great, and from there Pure Fix Cycles was born.
The company has grown and evolved since then, and they now carry nine different lines, including their original Pure Fix designs. They offer styles for several disciplines and even launched a successful Kickstarted campaign that funded the development of their revolutionary e-bike, the Volta.
Pure Cycles - popular Bike Models
Although Pure Cycles has grown beyond their signature fixie model, it still remains as one of many standouts in their all-star lineup of options. Here are the details about their products.
The Pure Fix models are low-maintenance single-speed bikes that feature a flip-flop hub allowing you to configure them as either a single speed or fixed speed bike. In this category, you can get the Original, Plus, or Premium model depending on how fancy you want to get with your components and the details.
Pure Cycles track bike models are the Kerin line. They feature race-tested geometry, and are ergonomically built for speed. Best used on track or in the velodrome, you can choose from the Keirin, Keirin Pro, or Keirin Elite components.
If you’re looking for more than just one gear, Pure Cycles City models might be just the ticket. Their Classic comes in either three or eight-speed, and they have straight or diagonal top tube options giving every rider a comfortable choice.
This eight-speed model comes with a few extra bells and whistles to raise the bar on your everyday commute. With disc brakes and a dual chainguard, it can stand up to any weather conditions to get you where you need to go.
Drop Bar Road
The variety of Road models, including their popular Drop Bar option, offer you 16 speeds and comfortable ergonomics and handlebar configurations for maximum aerodynamics on your ride.
Pure Cycles has an adventure category of bikes coming soon. These beasts are perfect for gravel grinder and cyclocross racing and feature disc brakes and geometry that keeps you in control on loose or uneven surfaces.
The one-size Volta is the electric crown jewel of the Pure Cycles collection. This model features either a belt drive or an eight-speed chain and can go up to 40 miles on a single charge. It comes with an integrated headlight and tail light system and has GPS anti-theft tracking built-in.
Built for comfort, the classic single-speed beach cruiser and step-thru cruiser have plush extras like a comfy saddle, extra padded handlebar grips, and a kickback style brake.
For a similar ride without all the cushy features, Pure Cycle’s coaster models give you the same pedaling and brake technology with a more minimized feel.
It’s not just adults who have all the fun riding a Pure Cycles bike. Their kid-sized option, called the Balance, is perfect for teaching little ones how to balance on a bike. With its sturdy steel frame construction isn’t nearly indestructible.
An aesthethically pleasing bike equipped with high-quality parts, the Pure Fix Original comes with a steel frame, 700c tires and many other high quality components which you can read more about in our Pure Fix Original Review.
