Some time ago I recognised people in the streets riding nice and simple constructed bikes – no speeds and brakes – Fixed Gears. The fixed-gear bicycles’ owners formed into a separate subculture. The bikes began to appear at many places – the high-road and track bikes became a true design object.


______

My name is Sergey and I am the author of GetFixed. I’m an art-director and chief of design department. During last 3 years of my 5-year experience, I worked mainly with web and app design. I’m an author of creative concepts for many start-ups, advertising projects, web pages and brand books.

In March 2013 I made my first fix:

There are lots of people like me. I had an idea to create a community of all fixed gear enthusiasts from the entire world. The main task is to promote the fixers and the way of life, behind it. I just want to make riding popular, and fixed gear riding as well. But we don't have a platform, where you may easily find guys to ride around your town in the evening, chat and relax after a hard working day. And even find soul mates in another town. Or imagine you need to find a spare part for your bike. Currently we are split into FB groups, forums, which no one knows and can’t find them. It’s a true quest – you have to search it on the Internet all days out. Thousands of bikes’ stores and enthusiasts. 

The app is already has a design prototype and I'm here to get your help in completing it.

GetFixed is a non-commercial project, but rather an initiative. The app is and will remain free to download and use.

I want to create a community that will inspire, develop and support a worldwide fix-movement.


MY GOAL WITH THIS APP

It's primary aim is to unite all fixed gear fans by giving them a platform to find new fixed gear friends nearby (using geo-location), join rides set up by others or start their own, as well as buy or sell bicycle parts.

We combined a geolocation-based social network with a classified ad service – all of that just for fixed gear bicycle owners. You can not only make a profile for yourself, but for your bicycle as well. Add photos and describe each bicycle part so others know what you have installed. The geo-specific part of the app breaks users by areas that could be a city, district, state or country and makes it easy to find ride buddies nearby.

Main features of GetFixed include:  

  • News Feed
  • Posts Check-ins
  • Photo / Video sharing
  • Rides
  • Buy and Sell 
  • Events


WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?

Members of our team are doing the design and back-end (server part) as a contribution to the project. We need your support to develop iOS and Android apps, so 100% of the money will go towards it (minus cost of stickers and bells).

Honestly speaking, I do it for my soul and I wish to bring this idea into life, let people use and popularize the fixed gear culture through GetFixed. I constantly work on that. The app will be grandious and I need your help.


Risks and challenges

Due to a numerous orders for bells, the delays of delivery are possible. We have a wonderful team: web engineer, designer and programmer. We will do our best to launch the app in time both for iOS and Android.
