Singlespeed and Fixie - biking in pure culture!
Purist is no longer possible!
When others throw verbally about travel and gear, you lean back and enjoy the view of your bike. With the single-speed bike and the fixie you consciously renounce unclean gear changes and the clatter of the chain and save additional money. The bikes delight with the uncomplicated structure and the simple, yet noble appearance. The bikes are surprisingly direct and efficient, no unnecessary weight or the suspension lets the energy go.
Singlespeed or even as fixie? - The decision whether with or without freewheel
Depending on the field of application and preferences, the bikes are structured differently. Unlike a fixed bike, a single-speed bike has a freewheel. So the bike rides just like a conventional mountain bike or road bike , but in a fixed bike things look very different! Due to the absence of the freewheel, the crank arms and therefore the pedals always rotate with them. It does not matter if you drive down a hill or through a bend.
Driving a fixie takes some practice, but also offers a lot of potential for tricks. Some bikes in our shop can be quickly and easily converted from a single-
speed bike into a fixed bike and vice versa through the flip-flop hub
. Also, the single-speed conversion
of conventional road bike is no longer difficult with the bike parts from our shop.
