Fixed gear cycling can seem like a strange concept at first. Why choose to ride with only one gear when you can have several? The difference is that riding a fixie gives you a different experience to any other. It makes you to feel more connected to the bike and helps you to keep your momentum as you ride.
The fixed gear trend has really taken the world by storm and fixies now have a huge following from both enthusiasts and casual cyclists alike. With unlimited customization options and the ease that having a fixed gear provides, they offer the perfect combination between BMX and a road bike! There are now hundreds of different variations of fixed gear bike available, some with brakes, some without.
Cycling has become a complicated hobby, there is often a lot of pressure to spend money on unnecessary equipment and bikes that have more features than most people know what do with! Fixies take cycling back to basics, making getting around easy and enjoyable without compromising on quality or speed. Riding a Fixie is one of the fastest and most enjoyable ways to get around, not to mention the health and cost benefits. Your daily commute should be the highlight of your day.
A great benefit of our bikes is that they are also fitted with a freewheel, so you can get comfortable riding your single speed bike with the pressure of having to ride with a fixed gear straight away. For those riders that prefer to switch straight to a fixie, it’s as easy as turning the rear wheel around to utilise the fixed gear on the opposite side of the hub.
The simplicity of only having one gear means you have to worry about maintenance and running problems less, meaning you can get on with the important things in you day and enjoy the riding experience!
