A fixie bicycle, aka a fixed gear bike, has fast become the mode of transport choice for those seeking a hassle free, environmentally conscious way to travel. However you might be wondering why people are opting for a fixie road bike rather than their geared counterpart.
The main difference, as you might expect, is the omission of gears for a fixie bicycle. Initially this can panic people but after you’ve been out for your first spin on a fixie bike you’ll realise that gears often just over complicate things. Instead of clunking up and down levers worrying whether you’re in the right gear, you can relax and enjoy your journey. Aside from delivering quick acceleration and zippy cruising speeds, fixie bikes are built to effectively ride themselves. Less effort, more time for your headspace and to take in the views. Whether commuting, bombing around the city or off on an adventure, a STEED single speed bike is your ultimate travel buddy.
Geared bikes are known to require plenty of maintenance. That’s not the case with a classic fixie bike. As no gears are added to the equation, a puncture or loose chain will often be the biggest issue you could face. The frame of a fixie is also built from steel for the most part, a material known for its durability, strength, and versatility.
One of the common questions we see about fixie bikes is how to brake effectively. The first thing to note is that Steed fixed gear bikes have both front and rear brakes. However some fixies don’t have a rear brake, and some don’t even have any brakes at all.The key is to reverse the momentum that got you up and running on your bike, which helps with slowing down when you need to stop. Our guide on how
to stop effectively on a fixie bike will quickly turn you into a pro.

You will have seen the terms fixie bike and single speed bike used interchangeably but is there a difference and are they one and the same?
For the most part, the answer is ‘Yes’. However, there is one notable difference between the two: how the rear wheel functions. A fixie sees the pedals move in unison with the rear wheel’s rotation, whereas the rear wheel moves independently to the pedals with single speed bikes.
The good news: At Steed Bikes, you are able to set up your bike as either a fixed gear bike or single speed bike to allow you to select whichever wheel configuration is the best fit for your needs. All Steed Bikes come as a single speed set up using the freewheel located on one side of the back wheel for independent pedal movement. However its easy to flip the wheel around and add a sprocket to set up as a fixie bike for constant pedalling. The choice, as they say, is yours.
There’s a reason why classic fixie and single speed bikes are exploding in popularity. Actually, there are several reasons why this is the case. Often referred to as the purest form of cycling, fixie bikes have individual style and fit a wide range or uses, including commuting, exploring, racing, doing tricks or just popping to the shops.
Fixies are known for being lightweight and affordable. Along with being manufactured with a light yet durable steel frame, they don’t feature any gears which can bulk up their weight. The lack of gears also streamlines your approach to maintenance. Without gears being part of the equation, there are fewer potential issues that could crop up.
Beyond the bike itself, there are a range of wider benefits. Riding a fixie will help you to get fit and healthy,making you feel more energised and releasing endorphins, the happy hormones, into your systemIt is also great for your mental wellbeing. Riding your bike gives you time to think and breath and also improves concentration levels, as you have to always be aware of your body, your bike, and your surroundings as you peddle away.

We are living in a time of climate crisis and mass gobal deforestation. Travelling by bike significantly reduces our carbon footprint. But the manufacture and transport of our bikes adds to the planet's carbon emissions. Thats why we’ve partnered with International Tree Foundation who ensure that for every bike we sell, at least one tree is planted.
And for every Woodland Green Thoroughbred fixie
bike sold, two trees are planted.
The more trees we plant the more CO2 is absorbed from the atmosphere to help tackle the climate crisis.
