What is a Fixie or Fixed Gear Bike you ask?

Fixed gear bikes or Fixies are bikes that allow a true bike riding experience bikers might recall from their youth. There are no gears and riders are forced to keep pedalling as you can not idle or you will be braking. Many fixie bike riders prefer this as they do not have to worry about making the correct shift or missing shifts when riding.

Fixed geared bikes also require much less maintenance as there are much less moving parts. A such they tend to cost considerably less that their road bikes or even commuter hybrid bike counterparts.
