Up until this day, my loyalty remains with fixed gear bicycles. Many of my cycling buddies would tease me about my fixie bike fixation and would urge me to get a multiple speed bike.
My heart truly belongs to a fixie and it seems that no matter how many people would point out to me the pitfalls of a fixie and the advantages of a multiple speed bike, my loyalty only grows stronger. I can’t say for sure why I love a fixie bike so much. As with anything a fixie bike comes with its own advantages and disadvantages. But I embrace everything there is about a fixie and I am quite happy with it. I may have a hard time riding up a hill with no other gear to shift to but I welcome this challenge.
