Fixie bikes are not only stylish, but also very practical. Most fixie bikes are available with a flip hop hub that enables the rider to choose whether the bike is set up as a fixed gear or as a single speed with the ability to coast freely. This bike ships as a single speed bike. Having only one gear means less parts and less weight. It is perfect for city dwellers or anybody looking for a bike that's simple to operate and easy to maintain.Great news!
