Your Funked up Fixie can be both a Fixed Gear or Single Speed 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 SINGLE SPEED bike. Is that easy. Fixed or Free- you decide!
*A FIXIED 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 SINGLE SPEED 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 SINGLE SPEED bike. Is that easy. Fixed or Free- you decide!
Yes you will! When your Funked Up Fixie arrives you can set it up either fixed gear or single speed- it's your choice!
If you set it 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 ‘track stand’ 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 single speed first and moving slowly to fixed gear. At Funked up Fixies, all our bikes have Flip Flop hubs so are ideally placed to do just this! Start with Single Speed and move to fixed whenever you feel ready! :) You’ll also find out exactly how to master riding fixed gear right here at funkedupfixies.com over in our community section.
Riding a FIXIE is the purest form of cycling and many people say it makes for the ultimate riding experience. When riding a fixie 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. This has also encouaged a new breed of FREESTYLE FIXIE RIDERS- taking the fixie to new levels and using their unique control to perform tricks, jumps, spins and acrobatics. see the videos in the community Section for more details
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. Now, in Urban settings, single speeds are back in a big way...
Our website’s unique ‘Bike Builder’ allows you to choose from hundreds 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 alsoincredibly 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

Funked up Fixies accept no responsibility for injury or damage caused by negligent assembly. We highly recommend regular check ups and maintainence to ensure your bike remains in a safe and road worthy condition.
