The Mach1 x Santafixie Black front wheel has been mounted and designed by our experts team . Our intention was to find a more economic wheel than the Archetype but with good performance. This wheel is lightweight (540 grams the rim), resistant and it's width of 22mm allows mounting wider tyres. If you mount a wider tyre, you will have more grip at bends and so you can lie down more.
It's a wheel with 28mm of profile, mounted with a Origin8 hub. It's perfect if you go on fixed mode and want a medium performance wheel.
It's size of 700c, is compatible with all the wheels of road bikes. The tyres recommended are from size 700cx25 to size 700cx35. You will need a 48mm inner tube. And you need to mount a rim tape between the rim and the inner tube to prevent and reduce punctures..
Santafixie conjugates passion and effort, bikes and cities. We’re the children of an ever-changing culture – metropolitan and frenetic. We move as nomads amongst this stream, until we become explorers of the urban world. We’re fans of cities – we move in a fast and safe way and meanwhile we observe, find and explore our environment.
Bikes are the amulets that are always at our side – they’re our compasses, our horses, our companions. They’re the ideal vehicle for those who believe in the future, in cities and the power of people.
This combination – bikes and cities – was what firstly inspired Santafixie.com. We’ve been selling different models and a lot of accessories over 6 years now, which has let us meet, talk and share our experiences with city and bike enthusiasts. Contemporary explorers from over 30 countries, that made us realize that it’s time to keep growing and do our bit to build our ideal tomorrow – more bikes inside cities in order to create a better world.
