Here are a few reasons you should consider a fixed gear bicycle:
- They are fun! Once you get used to it, you'll find it is just a more fun bike!
- 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.
- When riding a fixed gear you feel closer to your bike. Because you are more connected to your bike, you'll have better control.
- Efficiency. Without all those extra components your bike will be lighter and more efficient.
- They are beautiful. The simplicity of a fixed gear makes for one good looking bicycle!
