For the 10 of you on the internet that haven't seen this - this is for you
10 years is an eternity on the internet and next year it will be fyxomatosis' 10th birthday. When I think of the brands, blogs and bikes that have come and gone during that time it must point to me doing at least something right. I don't have a marketing budget, or backers behind me - just a pure love of riding, bikes and people.
It's quite humbling to look back on those years, the countries I've travelled, photos I've taken, people I've crossed paths with, to see my little alleycat inspired event turn into an absolute cult, and even more to think some of the best framebuilders in the world have got behind me for the Australian Custom Bicycle Show which is just around the corner.
Astounding considering I'm just one guy with a camera, a laptop and a well of ideas that spring out left right and otherwise. It helps that I also have an awesome Boss.
However, there are times, and they come frequently that I think about quiting - because honestly, the internet can get me down in a way that constantly amazes me - stopping to new lows on a regular basis.
Then I pinch myself, realise I'm living a pretty amazing life. Why would I quit or how could I?
To everyone who was lurked, bought tees, kit, cowbells, frames, parts or just emailed to say 'good work' it's thanks to you that I'm still here.
Actually, not so much the lurkers.
To stoke the FYXO fire I've released some new shirts for summer - not everyone's cup of tea but that has always been fine with me.
Life is too short to ride shit bikes.
