    • I love the quote from Henri Desgrange in 1902, "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isnt it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailleur? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"single speed bicycle
    • A fixed gear bike is based on a track bike, it has no gears so its a singlespeed, the bike single speed bicycle doesnt coast, so if the back wheelspins the pedals spin and many dont have hand brakes Many peoplethink riding a fixed gear bike without brakes is crazy, but you can stop itby locking up the rear tire, although it isnt the greatest way to stop, itdoes work
    • I should know, when I used to bike messenger I had a single speedcoaster brake with no front brake Skidding to a stop is not a fast way tostop
    • There were a number of times when I slid into the back of cars because Icouldnt stop fast enough I enjoy riding my fixed gear because its veryquiet, the bike is solid feeling because the chain isnt bouncing around onthe derailleur, and you have a nicer feel for the road
    • Its just a simpler way to ride The fixed gear is great for exercise sinceyou cant coast and when you go up hills you really have to work
    • Riding a fixed gear bike is a nice way to work on your pedaling technique When you go downhill you will be spinning very fast and if you dont havea good technique youll be bouncing all over the place
