We have a huge winter sale! We are offering 25% off everything in our custom and pre-made sections on the website, velocitybags.com, when you enter winter2012 in checkout.
Our new website is up and running. We did an overhaul on the old site and made some significant changes. We’ve streamlined the custom section of the website so that it’s quicker and more user friendly, but the biggest news is, we now offer pre-made products. You no longer have to wait 2-6 weeks for a custom bag, if you see something you like just add it to your cart and we’ll ship it out.
We’ve also added new products to the pre-made section.
Simple bags: They’re our no nonsense line of bags with just the essential features. Perfect for the person on a budget.
Runner: A small daypack messenger, for the days when you have a light load.
Wallets: We have tons of scraps and what better way to use said scraps then to make wallets. We have two styles of wallets, a slim 4 card wallet and a 6 card wallet.
Stephen Chai, our web designer, has done an amazing job! I couldn’t be more happy with the way the website has turned out. He outdid himself on this one. Thanks Stephen!

Meet our first team rider, Evan Service:
We first saw Even riding in our freestyle competition for the Velo Weekend event held this past June and we were so impressed. We have been watching him grow and improve ever since. We’re super excited to have him as a part of our FGFS team. Evan told us a little bit more about himself in this short interview that follows.
Velo City: How old are you?
Evan Service: 18
Velo City: How long have you been riding fixed gears?
Evan Service: I have been riding fixed gears for about 4 years. I have always had a passion for bikes. I was riding a two wheeler before my third birthday.
Velo City: Where were you born and raised?
Evan Service: I’m from shugahood Salt Lake City, Utah. Been here my whole entire life.
Velo City: What got you into Fixed Gear Free Style?
Evan Service: I got into FGFS because Jackson Bradshaw and Sam Allgood were riding around my neighborhood with their big forks on there fixed gears doing tricks, so that’s when I put together a trick bike.
Velo City: What inspires you?
Evan Service: The enjoyment of riding with friends pushing each other to learn new tricks and watching videos of Wonka, Matt Reyes, Tom La Marche and just all the top riders really inspire me.
