our friend Ben from Fyxation sent us this heads up....

Fyxation Session 700 now Available in 700x23c!


We wanted to send you a quick email letting you know that the Session 700 is now available in a 700x23c. It's been a long time coming and we're stoked to finally have the Sessions in a smaller size that will fit most frames. The new tires will be available in the same 11 color options as the 700x28c sessions.

As a reminder, the Session 700 is a tire designed to handle the toughest urban riding conditions. Each tire has a Kevlar belt for rolling flat protection, an aggressive full wrap around tread for sick traction and each tire is 120TPI and foldable. While we don't sell the Sessions as a skidding tire, the black compound we use is the same hardness as a long wearing touring tire and can hold up well in the toughest conditions. As always, we recommend you use the Dual Compounds (DC Sessions) or our solid black if your plan is to throw in the occasional skid.

The new tires are currently available in the
Fyxation Web Store-

Need somewhere to put your bike on campus?

one of the big obstacles to riding a bike to campus is security. How can you assure that your bike will not be stolen or vandalized? With many security and parking personnel patrolling the campus, most high-visibility areas are safe, but incidents do still occur.

To help, a new bike barn will open this fall. The Bike Barn is a special fenced-off segment of the Brady parking garage that can store 65 bicycles on special racks. Students, faculty and staff can park their bikes away from inclement weather and under the watchful eye of security cameras. The gated entryway can only be activated by those who have signed up for the service through the parking office.

Cost is $15 per semester. Call the Transportation and Parking Services Office at 426-7275.
