What's A Fixie?

What's A Fixie?

The solution: fixed-gear, single-speed bikes, or "fixies," which have been trendy among city riders for almost a decade. Instead of having a complex multisprocket gear shifter mounted on the back wheel, fixies are rigged like most children's bikes, with one gear. Sure, single-gear bikes require a little more mustard to propel up hills, but they're cheaper, more reliable and, if kids and urban hipsters are any indication, more fun than their multigear counterparts.
