FIXED GEAR OR SINGLE SPEED?
Do you even know if you're a fixed gear or single speed cyclist? If not, then perhaps it is first important to know what the difference is between a fixed gear and single speed bike. In a fixie the gear wheel is welded directly on the wheel. This wheel has thus only one position with stairs. Since the gear is welded to the wheel, and so the chain is directly attached to the wheel, the pedals rotate always with you when the bike is moving. Whether the fixed gear is now moved forward or backward. While driving the pedals will therefore rotate. The advantage is that the bike you are obliged to keep pedaling, with the result that you often ride faster over longer distances.
Would you rather just stairs like a normal bike? That is possible at a single speed. When a single speed the gear wheel is not attached directly to the rear wheel, in contrast to the fixed gear. This makes it possible to kick back during cycling. You can also still keep your feet on your pedals while cycling. A single speed is often popular with people who first buy that kind of bike, as they are often accustomed to the mechanism of a normal bike. A single speed is often seen as a safer bike. This has to do with the fact that the pedals of a fixed gear bike rotate, so even in the corners. When you're on a fixie goes diagonally through the corner, you run the risk that you pedals touch the ground with all its consequences.
All bikes in the shop of The Fixed Gear Shop come with a flip-flop hub. This would mean that both mechanisms on the wheel are available. So if you want to change a cycle time of style, that's no problem! For all fixed gear bikes that can be found in the shop of The Fixed Gear Shop are hand brakes included.
