MADVIX is a upcycling design project made by Italian artist ILCARBONAUTA and supported by Berlin based auftragsrad and Fahrer Berlin. Viks frameset that has been used for the project is very rare Anniveloversary Editon.
The concept is inspired by post-apocalyptic environments from the movies Mad Max, Waterworld and Wasteland, where recycling and crafts are the only ways to survive.
The bicycle is equipped with a water tank, an electromagnetic gun, a studded bat, a crossbow, a bow and some anti-poisoning and anesthetic capsules.
The MADVIX bicycle is driven by an unknown nameless character who comes from a place no one knows.
You are very welcome to come and find it out.

We are excited about coming Berliner Fahrradschau 2018. auftragsrad and Fahrer Berlin joined their forces to present the ultimate MAD VIX bicycle that is inspired by the movie MAD MAX. Without a doubt. Both companies mentioned above supported Alberto Spada, an award winning Italian artist residing in Berlin, with materials and parts. The bike is based on rather unusual Viks frameset and will be launched LIVE during Fahrradshau later this month. Stay tuned for more information next week. We saw the bike. It's beyond the cool 😎

Something spectacular is ahead of us though – tomorrow we are going to celebrate birthday of Republic of Estonia– 100th this time 🇪🇪️
Blue, black and white – these are our national colors. Here is our pick of Viks builds which will communicate the mood especially nicely. As well you will find out what has been so far the most popular blue shade for our pedal...-powered café racers – your favorite might be among these. Wish us well on comments and let us know your favorite🙌
Happy coming birthday beloved Estonia, congratulations dear fellow countrymen and friends of Estonia and Viks bicycle ❤️🥂🎂🎉
Sometimes you just have to compliment fellow bike builders👊 The story of VanMoof bike hunters has been viral for some time now. In case you missed it, you can read and watch it now. Fascinating stuff. Great job, VanMoof 🙌

It’s a new shop day 💪
When happen to be in Frankfurt, you are welcome to visit Quirder - fahrradfreude pur.
We asked a short comment from Sonia, who's running the shop, about her new adventure and how she found Viks....
That’s what she said:
“Well, the bike business is my second career and the opposite to the office job I used to do until five years ago. I decided to change completely to finally do what I really like. That was the best decision I ever made. Last year I started to open my own bike workshop. I did not want to be like the many other bike shops around. So we are focusing on few special brands and models only. We are selling cargobikes from chike and Larry vs Harry cargobikes' Bullitt, Pacific Cycles‘ folding bike Reach, Munich based hinterher.com's trailers and of course Viks. The shop is more like a living room where our customers can relax and feel like home...I had seen pictures of Viks for some time ago on the internet and immediately liked the shape of it. Then in 2017 at VELOFrankfurt bike fair I met Nico from auftragsrad. Nico was showing a Viks bicycle there. We started to talk and after a while he was telling me that there is no shop in Frankfurt and in south area of Germany to represent Viks. So here we are now - proud to be a part of the Viks community.“
Welcome on board Sonia 🙌
