Because it's more fun.konaken said:This bike makes me want a fixed gear. I understand the gains from training on a SS for mountain biking, but what are the benefits to riding fixed. (Other than the coolness factor of course!) Just trying to justify it to myself and my training needs. Thanks for the help.
Historically, fixed gear bikes have been used for winter training when riders are forced to do shorter rides in inclement weather, or to ride indoors on tracks. They help to develop leg speed, endurance, and strength. Personally, I found that riding fixed did wonders for both my mountain biking and road cycling fitness.konaken said:what are the benefits to riding fixed.
