Momabikes Fixie Bikes
Fixie bikes are characterised by the fact that they are single-gear, fixed-gear bikes with no dead centre. This means that the pedals are used to move forward, brake and reverse.
Main features of Fixie bikes
These fixed-gear bikes are distinguished by their lightness, simplicity and low maintenance requirements. Their lightness allows them to reach high speeds in just a few metres. And because they have no dead centre, the pedals of fixie bikes are always in motion when the bike is in motion. The frame of the single-gear bike is light and minimalist, as it has no gear mount. Our models have both front and rear brakes, for greater rider safety. And its wheels have a large diameter to achieve a lot of speed. Without a doubt, this model is very efficient in cities with few slopes.
Its operation is different from traditional bicycles, as you have to go forward, brake and reverse with the use of the pedals. This means that you cannot stop pedalling, because as long as the rear wheel rotates, the chain and pedals will also rotate. For this reason, it is possible to brake by reversing the direction of travel, and also to go in reverse. This involves training that a traditional freewheel bike does not require.
Advantages of fixie bikes
For all the advantages it offers over other models, the fixie bike is nowadays one of the icons of urban cycling. Among its advantages we find; the maintenance they require is minimal, as they do not have gears. They have a shorter and straighter chain, which together with the absence of derailleur pulleys provides an improvement in transmission efficiency. They are also ideal for pedalling on the flat and short distances.
Simplicity is one of its most outstanding characteristics, it provides a total connection between rider and bike, due to its purity and simplicity; everything depends on the rider's pedalling. With fewer components, these bikes are quite light. In terms of handling, the legs are the accelerator and brake, you pedal hard to pick up speed and you exert resistance on the pedals when you want to slow down. It also improves cadence, as the fixed gear forces you to carry a lot of cadence as you pick up speed, and as they are light and agile bikes, speed is achieved quickly.
Why a fixie bike?
The classic of classics. The bicycle that not only never goes out of fashion, but is becoming more and more popular. Minimalism in its purest form. A tribute to the icon of urban cycling, together with the touring bikes . Light and simple, but with maximum attention to every detail. It allows instant acceleration with a flick of the foot, which in turn is helped by its incredible aerodynamics.
A model that does not know the passage of time, as it is acclaimed by those who saw its birth and returned to the city by young people determined to reinvent themselves and praise its attractiveness. But fixie bikes are much more than a trend, it is clear that its mechanical simplicity, its effectiveness in the transmission of pedalling and its low maintenance make it the perfect city companion. But no one beats electric bikes in terms of innovation, be they mountain bikes, touring bikes or electric folding bikes.
If your goal is to get around town, fixie bikes are a great option. You can also customise yours, either with accessories or paint, to enhance its distinctive aesthetics. You can also take a look at folding bikes, a good solution for homes with less space or for combined journeys on public transport.
The reasons are many and varied, but what is clear is that getting a Fixie is a safe bet.
