Adopting A New Name for Adventures Ahead
February 14, 2017
As we merge with Saris Parking, we have made a joint decision to call attention to the most important common ground – our shared love of the bicycle.
"We’ve decided our name should envelope the depth and breadth of our true feelings for the greatest mechanical invention on the planet," said Andy Lambert, Bike Fixation Sales Manager. "It’s not a passing interest or a token appreciation, it is 100% a fixation."
Just as funding in the name of better bicycling continues, so will the need and demand for excellent bike infrastructure and bicycle parking solutions. From bike-friendly businesses to city governments to property owners and beyond, organizations across the globe are committing to better serving the cyclists in their communities. As an innovative leader in this space, we will continue to build infrastructure solutions in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with support from Saris headquarters and manufacturing facility in Madison, Wisconsin.
"We simply believe in the bike," said Chris Fortune, owner and founder of Saris. "It’s a belief in the transformative powers that bikes can have, and our dedication to ensuring as many people can experience that powerful connect as possible. It is clearly a fixation we hope we can spread."
