Getting Your Fix…

I spent some time doing an in-depth checkout of the website and blog at Bicycle Fixation, an LA bike advocacy website and found some pretty cool interactive features. They have their own shop and report on bike news and opinion pieces on the website. But, my favorite features are the interactive ones. A quick look at the BF blog shows two contests where the Fixation needs (or "needed") our help.

First, the fixation wants you to review your bike’s tires. If you use your bike regularly, they want a review. You can submit your comments here.

Unfortunately, voting has closed on the best bike rack contest, but a winner should be announced any day now.
We’ll be keeping an eye on the site for news on more contests and more ways to be involved, but the easiest way to know whats going on at BF is to spend some time clicking around yourself.
