I wish to hav 1... seem sooooo cooool... but when will I hav time & better place in KL to ride?
This cool bike name Fixie Bike and also known as a Fixed-gear Bike. As mentioned in this blog page, it is a single speed bike, where there is no free wheel. Instead, the pedals are linked directly to the wheel. This has a few consequences. First, it means you cannot have multiple speeds, since every movement you do with the pedals translate directly on the wheel. It also means that you cannot move the pedals at all without moving the wheels. Finally, it means you don’t really need a separate breaking system, since simply stopping the pedals in their tracks will stop the wheel, and force the bike to stop. The way this is done is by using a sproket, linked between the chain and the wheel. A typical bike has multiple cogs that link together, and that allows the chain to move in a free way between the various cogs. Instead, the single sproket locks the chain in place, which is also attached to the pedals. That way, fixie bikes have a direct link between the pedals and tires, and are also less complex to build.
Have a 'raining' New Year Eve frens! huh.... daaaa... who's gonna celebrate wif me? **sigh...again**
