Four new framesets are available from Tokyo Fixed 2012 line, which are the Dream Machine, The Dart, S2 and S1.

First up we have the Dream Machine that uses a flat top tube for 2012 with an overall simple and sleek design.

The Dart is another simple frame from Tokyo Fixed. Using oversized tubing and a compact geometry with TF signature dropouts. Available in black, the price tag is set appropriate for beginners.

The 2012 S2 is a lugged track frame with geometry made for comfort but aggressive. The graphics resemble the NJS frame, but uses the same colors from the 3Rensho. This year the S2 will have a double butted Chromoly, thron tubing and cnc Cr-Mo dropouts.

Last we have the 2012 S1, with this year resembling even more the popular Japanese Keirin frame. The S1 features Columbus Spirit Keirin tubing with steep angles.

This is what happens when designers Mark Eley and Wakako Kishimoto teamed up with Tokyo Fixed. The Eley Kishimoto x Tokyo Fixed bike is a prime example of the endless variations associated with the fixed world.

A deeper look reveals a Brooks saddle and bars. Also leaving an imprint on the ride was Eastpak, Orlebar, Brown, Ruby Helmets, Incase, and Globe-Trotter. Primarily white, the collab is accented with a turquoise or black leaf theme (your choice) and a light pink logo across the downtube.

Gotta run over and let them know if you want one though as they are limited.
