“Think of bicycles as ridable art that can just about save the world.” - Grant Petersen, bicycle designer
SINGLE SPEED BIKES
A single-speed / fixed-gear bicycle is simple, lightweight, and requires almost no maintenance. There are fewer parts that make up this kind of bike, which means there are fewer parts to potentially damage.
Riding fixed is also an efficient workout because you’re always in motion and, therefore, always exercising. When you ride fixed, you are most at one with your bicycle. It doesn’t move unless you move with it.
