What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

It was never easier, to mount your bag ultra-fast to any bicycle you want.      

Fixing your bag to the cycle’s fork guarantees a safe ride and reduces annoying rattle at once.

We are convinced that panniers should be both, appealing and useful. At the same time we want to maintain the clean and unique looks of our cycle.

The cycle bag mount is made of super light and strong aluminum and comes with a branded Fixeur Studios cap.      

The internal heavy-duty Dyneemafiber withstands even the heaviest strains. Even Climbers trust in the Dyneemafiber to secure them in terrifying hights. The 12 times plaited rope has a breaking load of 410 daN (kg) which make it ultra-durable and resistant against everyday influences.     

We believe that your life deserves that kind of quality and safety.

Our vegetable tanned leather bag-family is the perfect addition to the Fixeur. Each bag is entirely made of 10 oz. (4 mm) thick Italian leather with an aniline dyed and hot stuffed finishing. All seams are handstitched for durability and aesthetics.      

The combination of German and Italian craftsmanship makes dreams of quality and great design come true.

Every product is built to last a lifetime.

Our team shares a passion for cycling and making things work. Together we realized our Vision of making the world’s smallest and ultralightweight cycle bag mount marketable.     

Volker Breust & Michel Voigt
Volker Breust & Michel Voigt

Fixeur Studios would not exist without Volker Breust, our inventor, autodidact and absolute all-rounder. Ever since he went to school he chose his minimalist cycle over busses or cars. His very first utility model was a detachable dynamo light. After working for VW for almost a decade, and several successful Innovations, Volker’s innovative spirit returns to its roots with The Fixeur.      

Michel Voigt is the heart of Fixeur Studios. During his studies in Multimedia Production and Mediadesign in Kiel he got to know Volker. Soon it became obvious, that two like-minded spirits met and the idea of making The Fixeur big was born. With his passion for cycling and his ambitious mindset he’s determined to bring Fixeur Studios to all cycle lovers out there.

Our team was lately joined by Adrienne Scheidt who studied Media Management and serves those nifty texts you’re reading. After falling in love with our boy Kurt the only reasonable conclusion was to join Fixeur Studios as a helping hand in message conception and communication.

Now it’s your turn to become a part of our entrepreneur journey!

For a flawless, standardized size and fit we invest in a injection mold to ensure fast and easy industrial production of the Fixeur. Providing high quality products means a lot to us. That’s why we invest in high-class leather from Italy. Our bags are handsewn in Germany to guarantee durability and good working conditions.

Risks and challenges

In manufacturing, there's always a risk that suppliers do not fulfill orders on time. We're working with a very professional, organized factory that has decades of experience. We trust them to help us coordinate other material suppliers and produce in a timely manner. We've added buffers to the lead times just in case.

Duty/VAT charges: If you live outside of the US, you will be responsible for any applicable duty/VAT charges.
Customs: Some countries are known for being very slow with customs, and you probably know if you live in one. We're sorry that we can't put a magic stamp on our packages to help them get through faster.

We'll update you frequently about our progress, and if there are any blips along the way, we'll let you know!
