Single Speed and Fixed Gear Bikes – Cycling Simplicity
Single Speed and Fixed Gear bikes are the perfect choice for those who like something mechanically simple. They are low maintenance and ideal for running around town or, in fixed gear version, helping to build fitness and technique. They are better suited to flat terrain as they only have one gear.
Bicycle manufacturer Fidusa has a long history of success with track racing bikes. This expertise can be transferred to the road with a hand-built Single Speed or Fixie custom built to optimize fit and comfort.
How are Fidusa Single Speed and Fixed Gear bikes different from other types?
A Single Speed bike has only one gear ratio – a single chainring and only one rear sprocket. It has a freewheel which means you can stop pedalling and coast as you ride, as you would with a regular geared bike.
A Fixed Gear doesn’t have a freewheel, so your legs are permanently engaged with the rear wheel – when you’re moving, you’re pedalling. Both versions use the same type of frame with horizontal dropouts to adjust the chain tension dependant of the size of the chain ring and sprocket.
Fidusa’s Single Speed and Fixed Gear bicycles are distinguished by how light and quiet they are. They are very low maintenance with minimal componentry. Ideal for running around town or, in fixed gear version, helping to build fitness and technique.
Fidusa can create something unique for you with a frame painted in the colour and design YOU choose.
