What's the difference between a Fixed Gear Or Single Speed Bike?

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!
