DESCRIPTION

These retro-style single speed bicycles are ideal for urban commutes as they offer easy maintenance and fast cycling. The single gear ratio and low weight offers an ideal compromise to allow users to both accelerate very fast and maintain a high speed all in one gear. Cycling up small inclines will be easily achieved because of its lightweight chassis and its 'just right' gear ratio. The so called 'flip flop hub' allows the cyclist to free wheel and coast down a hill (like a standard bike), or, by flipping the rear wheel over, the cyclist can have a fixed gear (like that of a track / velodrome bike). The fixed gear is very much an experience; it helps maintain the momentum of the bike via constantly rotating pedals; this encourages the cyclist to keep pedalling. It also allows the cyclist to both accelerate and brake with their feet which allows more control when braking in wet or icy conditions. This is because your feet are in complete control of the rear wheel rather than the brake pads potentially slipping (due to water / ice) or the wheels potentially locking due to the over application of the brakes. So we are bringing retro back. We, at bicycles4u, think these single speed bicycles look and feel great. They have that solid, safe and sturdy feel while maintaining the slim and sophisticated elegance attributed to much more expensive bicycles of this genre.
