WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A FIXIE AND A SINGLESPEED BIKE?

Your Funked up Fixie can be both a Fixed Gear or Singlespeed bike depending on how you set up your bike’s rear wheel. All our bikes come with flip flop hubs; simply flip around your rear wheel anytime to switch from a FIXED GEAR to a SINGLESPEED bike. Is that easy. Fixed or Free- you decide!

*A FIXED GEAR BIKE or “FIXIE”, is a single speed bike without the ability to freewheel or ‘coast’.  The rear cog is attached or ‘fixed’ to the bike’s rear wheel which means whenever the bike is in motion, the pedals will go around. So you're always pedaling on a fixed-gear bicycle.

*A SINGLESPEED BIKE is a single geared bike which you ride as normal, with the ability to freewheel or ‘coast’

Your Funked up Fixie can serve both purposes depending on how you set up your bike’s rear wheel. All our bikes come with flip flop hubs; simply flip around your rear wheel anytime to switch from a FIXED GEAR to a SINGLESPEED bike. Is that easy. Fixed or Free- you decide!

For more information on riding fixed gear and singlespeed check out our blog posts here and here.

 


WILL I BE ABLE TO RIDE A FIXED GEAR BIKE?

Yes you will! When your Funked Up arrives you can set it up either fixed gear or single speed- it's your choice!

If you set it up as a fixed gear, there are a few things to note:

Riding FIXED GEAR BICYCLES requires a different kind of approach. The fixed gear does not allow you to coast. In fact, going downhill can be hard work. The cog on the rear wheel is bolted directly the hub so that your pedals must go at the same speed as your rear wheel. This also means your pedals can be used to slow down the bike, and the ability to pedal backwards make the impressive ‘trackstand’ you sometimes see bicycle messengers do when the traffic lights are red. It also works your legs in new ways so you will get fitter and stronger, quicker!

So to sum up, riding a fixie takes a bit of getting used to! If you are new to Fixies, we recommend mastering the singlespeed first and moving slowly to fixed gear. At Funked up, all our singlespeed bikes have Flip Flop hubs so are ideally placed to do just this! Start with singlespeed and move to fixed whenever you feel ready! :)

 


WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF RIDING A FIXED GEAR BIKE?

Riding a fixed gear bike is the purest form of cycling and many people say it makes for the ultimate riding experience. When riding fixed you feel a closer connection with your bike and with the road. There is a purity to the fixed gear bicycle that can be quite seductive and great fun. Fixed gear bikes are most suited for inner cities and urban areas where it is flat.

The bike of choice for many cycle messengers - fixies provide simplicity, reliability, low maintenance and control. There has been a massive resurgence in Fixed gear bicycles in recent years. Fixies and the ability to easily customise your bike have helped make them a symbol of modern urban living, style and freedom.

 


BUT WHERE DID THE FIXIE COME FROM?

Some of the first bikes ever were fixed geared Bikes! – look at the Penny Farthing, and you will see that the pedal cranks are connected directly to the hub of the front wheel. Before the advent of the derailleur (which allows bicycles to have gears) single speed bikes were the only race bike available. The early Tour De France races involved cyclists riding Fixed Gear Bikes. All Track Bikes that you see competing in the Velodromes are Fixed Gear Bikes. Today, in Urban settings, Single Speed & Fixed Gear Bikes are back in a big way...

 


OK, SOUNDS GREAT! SO HOW DO I CUSTOMISE MY FIXIE?

Our website’s unique ‘Bike Builder’ allows you to choose from billions of color combinations to suit your style and build your own Fixie with top quality components and looks to boot. It’s not only easy but also incredibly affordable! Why settle for a bicycle that looks like everyone else’s? Now you can set the scene with your own, unique fixed gear or single speed bike.

 

 


CAN I GO FURTHER?

You really want to make your mark on your bike? Well, with Funked Up Fixies you can! Once you’ve chosen your colour combinations you have the option of adding your own CUSTOMISED GRAPHICS and TEXT to your Fixie. Chose from over 40 symbols that reflect your style and personality or even add your favourite quote, lyric or mantra to your top tube. Remember, it’s your bike, make it for you!
