Why should I get a fixie?

So, you're looking for a bike. There are a lot of different types of bicycles out there, so how do you know which one is right for you?

Here are a few reasons you should consider a fixed gear bicycle:

  1. They are fun! Once you get used to it, you'll find it is just a more fun bike!
  2. It's good exercise. When you're coming up on a hill, you don't have the option to change the gear and make the ride easier, so you'll find yourself getting stronger. 
  3. When riding a fixed gear you feel closer to your bike. Because you are more connected to your bike, you'll have better control. 
  4. Efficiency. Without all those extra components your bike will be lighter and more efficient. 
  5. They are beautiful. The simplicity of a fixed gear makes for one good looking bicycle!
