Fixed Gear Framesets for Urban Living 

Popular with commuters, cycle couriers and avid urban cyclists alike, fixie bike frames are perfect for those who love retro, comfortable and low-maintenance rides. They make for reliable bikes that will get you from A to B in no time at all. They look the part and easily fit into apartments and smaller living spaces. 


What is a fixed gear frameset? 

Fixed gear framesets are often used by professional riders and athletes in competition or event settings such as those you find in a velodrome. Their key feature includes a lack of a freewheel mechanism, which means that if you’re moving you must pedal to stay on the bike itself. 

Do fixie and single-speed mean the same thing? 

To look at, both fixed-gear and single-speed bikes are extremely similar. They both feature rear cogs and front chainring, meaning that they both have one gear. However, the main difference is that single-speed bike framesets allow the rider to coast whereas fixie bikes require constant pedalling. 

Can you use any frame for a fixie bike?

If you’re an avid rider or bike builder, you can convert any frame to a fixed-gear bike. However, they must have horizontal dropouts in order for you to do this as they are a key component for creating tension in the chain. 

Can you stop pedalling on a fixed-gear bike? 

In short, no. The rear cog of a fixie bike is connected to the rear hub, which means if the wheel is turning then so are the cranks. Single-speed bikes however have a freewheel which allows the rider to coast without pedalling.
