Momabikes Fixie Bikes
Fixie bicycles are characterized by being single-speed, fixed-gear bikes without neutral. Thanks to this, you move forward, brake and reverse with the use of the pedals.
Main features of Fixie bikes
These fixed gear bicycles are distinguished by their lightness, simplicity and the low maintenance they require. Their lightness allows them to reach great speed in just a few meters. And since they do not have a neutral point, the pedals of fixie bicycles are always in motion when the bike is running. The frame of the single-speed bicycle is light and minimalist, since it does not have a gear mount. Our models have both front and rear brakes, for greater rider safety. And its wheels have a large diameter to achieve high speed. Without a doubt, this model is very efficient in cities with few slopes.
Its operation is different from that of traditional bicycles, since you must move forward, brake and reverse with the use of the pedals. This means that you cannot stop pedaling, since as long as the rear wheel rotates, the chain and pedals will also rotate. For this reason, you can brake by applying force in reverse to the direction of travel, and also go in reverse. This involves training that the traditional freewheel bicycle does not need.

For all the advantages it offers over other models, the fixie bicycle is today one of the icons of urban cycling. Among its advantages we find; The maintenance they require is minimal, since they do not have changes.

In addition, they are ideal for pedaling on the flat and on short journeys.
Simplicity is one of its most notable characteristics, it provides a total connection between cyclist and bicycle, due to its purity and simplicity; It all depends on the cyclist's pedaling. By having fewer components, these bikes are quite light. As for driving, your legs are the accelerator and brake, you pedal hard to gain speed and you exert resistance on the pedals when you want to slow down. In addition, it improves cadence, since the fixed gear forces you to have a lot of cadence as you gain speed, and since they are light and agile bicycles, speed is achieved quickly.
