Single-speed bikes offer the simplest, most stripped-down cycling experience. With fixed-gear bikes, no gadgets or gears will get between your pedals and the wheels, offering a pure and simple cycling experience. These bikes are light-weight and perfect for racing, but fixed-gear bikes are developing with urban hybrids and trail bikes becoming popular in single-speed style. They're not only fun to ride but really easy to maintain – with much less to go wrong! .
