Why ride fixed?

At Chill Bikes, we make some of the best fixed gear bikes in great colour schemes at more-than-decent prices, but why should you buy a fixie in the first place?

1) Style

Fixies look great – it’s undeniable. The low cost of the few parts it takes to build a fixie means you can mix things up and experiment with colours, materials and shapes of the components.

Fixie vogue

Fixed gear bikes allow you to customise your ride

2) Simplicity

You pedal, the bike goes. Stop pedalling, the bike stops. No fancy levers or fiddly sprockets – the fixie is simplicity itself. You won’t find a fixie rider saying any of this nonsense!

3) Price

Have you got £12k to spare on a first-rate road bike with a carbon-fibre frame? No, me neither. At a couple of hundred quid, the Chill Bikes Original is all you need to get on the road and riding, without any of the gimmicks.

4) Training

Riding fixed makes you a better rider – you’ll train harder (because you can’t switch down into granny gear every time you hit the hills) and your pedalling style will be smoother too.

5) Originality

The first bikes ever made were fixed gear. They’re the original and the best.

6) Connection

Riding a fixie is a feeling like no other. The bike becomes an extension of your body, rather than just a tool to get from A-to-B. You’ll actually start to become one with it over time – the more you ride, the stronger the connection.
