Something to Consider during May which is National Bike Month

Fixie bicycles are changing the way that the youth can now approach and immerse themselves within the cycling world. Nowadays college students and even high school students that live close to their campus might commute by bike to school. And those who don't, get rides with their friends because they don't understand a lot about bikes. Single-speed bicycles are now making a comeback not only because of their price point but also their looks and style. Fixie bicycles are changing the way that the youth can now approach and immerse themselves within the cycling world. Nowadays college students and even high school students that live close to their campus might commute by bike to school. And those who don't, get rides with their friends because they don't understand a lot about bikes. 
However, many students that own expensive bikes may be hesitant to leave their bike locked outside where the can't monitor it and reassure themselves that it's secure. This is where the fixie bike comes into play. They're sold at a very affordable price point, so they appeal to your average students budget. And they offer a highly minimalist and simplistic style which not only has its looks but is easy to maintain and upkeep. Unlike the more expensive road bikes which have complicated shifting and braking mechanisms which aren't user friendly to the daily commuter, our line of fixie's are not only made in a simplicity design to alleviate much of the maintenance required by a more specialized road bike, but also highly customizable to suit any riders wants and needs. 
All the way from the type of handlebars they feel like using that day, to the color of the tires on their rims that they prefer. A Bike Made To Suit You After deciding that a fixie bike is for you, that’s when the fun begins and personalizing the bike to your personal needs can begin. While your bike is for commuting from point A to point B, you should be able to enjoy what you ride, when you ride it. Because if you don’t like the bike you have, chances are you won’t want to ride it. To make it truly your own, you can modify almost every aspect of your bike to your desire. The rims, tires, pedals, handlebars and even the grip tape can be changed with only couple of simply hand tool’s to create the color combination of your choice. As your riding style improves and you become a more “seasoned-rider” some improvements such as a better chainring or cog can be installed to challenge your riding capabilities and not only make you a better commuter, but a better cyclist.
