made here pt 1

With the recent news that Velocity are moving their production from Brisbane to Florida,I thought this would be an appropriate time to feature some Australian made cycling products.These beautiful ,rock solid, aluminium armour plate chain rings come from Fyxomatosis.Just so you know,they are CNC machined. (computer numerical control).ie a technician punches in the numbers,and the machine spits out the result.Anyway, however they're made,I love em.Particularly the 1/8" track rings.

I guess it's a sign of the times that I feel slightly surprised to see 'Made in Australia' stamped in metal (pleasantly surprised).

G'day Ms Bicyclist,

Up until around 10 years ago I was obsessed by purchasing 'Australian made' if it were competing with a similar'foreign made'product.This is pretty much impossible now so I'm always glad to see some cycling paraphanalia made here. There's quite a lot when you search around and I'll be featuring some more in the coming weeks.
