Fixie bikes derive their moniker from their fixed-wheel design. Riders must constantly pedal to keep the wheels moving — there’s no coasting with fixie bikes! Fixies are single-speed bikes with no gears, which makes them simple to operate and maintain. On the other hand, the no-gear design means that fixies are not the best choice for hilly landscapes, as the rider is unable to make the climb easier by shifting to a lower gear. Thus, fixie bikes are best suited for riders who prefer to stick to flat surfaces or do most of their cycling on bike tracks.
A fixie bike isn’t for everyone. If you travel long distances over hilly terrain or enjoy going off road with your bike, a fixie may not be the best choice. A fixie makes a great second bike, because they’re fun to take out in town with your friends, or enjoy at your local bike track. Thanks to their simple design and ease of maintenance, a single speed bike is reliable and ready to go when you are.
