Pepita Bikes - Guía Tallas

It hears by everywhere, but maybe you don´t know yet very well what fixed gear means, where they come from and how they have arrived to the streets of every cities of the world.

How they are

  • What they have: everything you need to go: handlebar, frame, saddle, pedals, chain, pinion, plate and two wheels.
  • What they don´t have: brake, because if you stop pedalling, you stop riding. Without change gears because they have only one. With no free pinion and therefore, no deadlock.

This means if the pedals are moved, the rear wheel moves, and therefore the bike will advance.

If you want to move more slowly or even stop, you have to slow down with pedals until stop pedalling.

Where they come from

Although now it sounds like a trendy bike, fixed gear bikes were the first generalist bikes to appear, opening the way for millions of people for cycling. The free pinion was invented in 1890, and since then the technology and materials have made great progress, but the essence is the same.

The return to the basics and the maximum control of movement are some of the reasons for the rebirth of Culture called Fixie “fixed gear”, although we can not ignore two spot keys to understand how resurfaced fixed gear bikes in the age of mountain bikes.

  • New York, 1980: the messengers of the Bronx began to recover the cheapest bike they found. And they realized how well they worked.
  • Japan, 1940: appears a cycling modality of cycle track called Keirin, a definitive sprint after a few warm-up laps behind of a moped. In 2000 was done the first Olympic competition and it is confirmed millions of bets.

In addition to these data, which fixed gear people say is that it hooks. Once you get used to pedaling a fixed gear the performance and the control increase, so you can get greater speed, accuracy and fun.

Being a basic machine, maintenance is cheap and easy customization, making it easy for users to get special components and unique bikes.

There are also subcultures within the fixed gear world, they do tricks or play polo on their bikes, for these practices a lot of training and very sturdy bicycle is required.

Pepitas are bikes of initiation to the fixed gear world, urban bikes. They have an advantage because have the flip-flop system, which you can change from the fixed pinion to free pinion turning the rear wheel, so they have brakes. And although there are fixed gear with futuristic designs, we have opted for a return to the classics, they are fixed gear bikes with a vintage design, as probably rode your grandparents.
