About Fixie Bikes


Fixie Bikes aren't just trendy and nice to look at, they are a lot of fun to ride as well. They've also been helping to push the resurgence in urban cycling that's been very noticeable in the last few years.


You can trace the uptake of fixie bikes back to the bike messengers of New York and London. Although fixie bikes originally hail from velodrome racing they were a staple in bike club training rides through the winter, providing their owners with a generally maintenance free ride and helping to promote a good pedalling technique that was considered crucial by the racing fraternity in the off season when they were building up their endurance with regular long rides.


Fast forward to the messenger culture and the low maintenance requirements of a fixie bike make perfect sense for riding in a relatively flat city. As messenger fashion has gone mainstream with courier bags etc so has the desire for a very cool one speed fixie bike with lots of bike companies such as Leader, Chargebikes and Crate getting in on the act. These fixie bike brands all make some fantasticly good fixie bikes at various price points, from entry level fixie bikes right up to top of the range fixie bikes. The thing is, when you've only got one gear and one brake there's only so much you can do to a fixie bike to make it top end.


The most prized fixies are vintage track bikes that have been lovingly restored. Made with Reynolds, Columbus or Tange high end tubing these frames ooze style from a golden era of track cycling before throwaway materials like carbon fibre came along. Lo-pro fixie frames from the 80s with bullhorn bars turn more heads than the latest out of the box fixie bike every time. With a beautiful paint job and classic Campagnolo, Phil Wood or Shimano components these bikes will roll forever needing next to no maintenance.


Sizing a Fixie Bike

It's important to get the right size fixie bike to ensure that your time spent riding it will be fun and not leave you with any unnecessary aches and pains. Generally the size of fixie bike you'll need will depend on your height although do bear in mind that some people will have longer legs, others longer torsos etc so this is just a rough guide. Additionally you'll want to be aware of standover height – the amount of room between the top of the frame and your crotch when you are standing astride the bike when stationary. Typically one to two inches of gap is good here.


We've compiled a broad outline here of what sized fixie bike you could need depending on your height.


Rider Height – Fixie Frame Size CM

4'10” – 5'0” 47-48cm

5'0” - 5'3” 49-50cm

5'3” - 5'6” 52-53cm

5'6” - 5'9” 54-55cm

5'9” - 6'0” 56-58cm

6'0” - 6'3” 58-60cm

6'3” - 6'6” 61-63cm


Bear in mind this is just a rough guide as other factors such as bottom bracket height, sloping or horizontal top tube and top tube length can all have an influence.


Fixie Bike Pedals

The types of pedals you use will have a big impact on the way your fixie bike feels when you ride it. The main factor to consider is what sort of shoes do you want to be wearing – it might not be convenient wearing the latest racing shoes when all your journeys are just a couple of miles and you need to walk around at the other end. Likewise if you've got a 10 mile journey and you use flat pedals with trainers you are going to be wasting a lot of potential energy by not using clipless or at the very least toe straps. The pros and cons of each type of fixie pedal are:


Flat pedals – can wear any footwear you want but waste energy by not being able to pedal 'upwards' and your feet can slide off in the rain more easily. Rear wheel lockups are very difficult.

Flat pedals with toe straps – feet are held securely and can pedal 'most' of the way round. Can wear any shoe. If you do them up tight it can be hard to get your feet out.

Clipless pedals – Are limited to wearing your cycling shoes on the bike but transfer much more of your pedalling power and you go faster. Rear wheel lockups are much more easier


From an aesthetic point of view a nice pair of delta platform pedals with metal toe strap cage from the 80s can't be beat.


Securing your fixie bike


If you live in any type of urban area, which we presume you do, we have yet to find a lock that can't be broken. Read that again – We have yet to find a lock that can't be broken. Get good insurance for your fixie bike and don't leave it locked up in public areas. We always take our bike in with us and leave it in a hall, corridor or out in a private yard somewhere.
