Fixie Bikes

View:

What is a fixie, or fixed wheel, bike?

The answer lies in the coasting, or lack thereof. Fixies can’t freewheel, which is another way of saying if the bike is moving forward, the pedals will continue to turn; you can’t coast like you can with other bikes.

This is because a fixie’s drivetrain has the drive in the cog threaded or bolted to the wheel’s back hub, forcing the rider to pedal if the rear wheel is moving.

More often than not fixies are single-speeds and only have a front bike, although some fixies don’t have any brakes at all.

Fixies are enjoying a real limelight lately, and are seen as the super cool kid on the bicycle block. Plenty of riders take pride in customising their fixie.
