Why Would Your Ride a Fixed Gear?

John December 30, 2009 0

Why would you want to ride a fixed gear bike…a bike that cannot coast…a bike where the pedals are literally chained to the wheels?  Well, there are a number of reasons that I can think of.

1.  It is simple.  This is a bicycle in its simplest form.  There is no worrying about gears or other unnecessary parts…a fixed gear bike is just plain simple.

2.  It is Strong.  Because a fixed gear is so simple, there is much less that can go wrong with it.  Because of it’s simplicity, it is durable and much less exposed to the dangers and complications of other types of bicycles.

3.  It is Maintenance free.  Once again, going back to the simplicity of this contraption.  Fixed gear bikes require a lot less maintenance and work.  Most work you see people do on fixed gears is purely cosmetic.

4.  It is Peaceful.  Fixed gear bikes are much more peaceful and enjoyable to ride…there is something about it that makes you feel much more in tune with your surroundings and your bike.  Because you are constantly pedaling, you feel like you are a part of the bike…feeling every turn and new terrain.
