Said to be a pure form of cycling, Singlespeed bikes are simplicity at its best. With only one gear and sometimes no brakes at all (Fixie), there are very few moving parts to maintain, meaning less time in the workshop and more time riding. More suited to flat landscapes, Singlespeeds are brilliant for city cruising and have oodles of good style.
ROAD BIKE FRAME SIZE
Ensuring you find the right frame size for you is really important to making sure your time on the bike is comfortable and fun. You’ll feel stretched and have less control if the bike is too big, and cramped on a bike that is too small. The geometry of the road bike will vary between sizes and across different brands too, so take time to research the different options and get the right bike fit. We do have size guides for each manufacturer, but the best way to find the right bike fit is to try one for size in store. Plus, we can make adjustments to the handlebar and saddle height and position to modify the reach to fit you perfectly.
