Super simple, super reliable, and a perfect match for flat city riding, fixie bikes are a favourite with commuters and bike messengers the world over. Fixie bikes, or fixies, have just one gear, and traditionally no freewheel. Without a freewheel, you have to keep pedalling – no rolling down hills!
Nowadays, many fixies have the option of swapping over to a freewheel so you can coast along if you choose. Even with this concession to comfort, the simplicity of a fixie makes it light, low maintenance, and durable. Ideal for riding every day in all conditions.
