Urban Bikes or Fixed Gear Bikes

Hipsters have embraced fixies due to their low cost and simplicity.  Only one gear, a true fixie allows no coasting.  You’re always pedaling.  Back in the day road racers trained on this type of bike to improve strength and pedal stroke.  Track racing on a velodrome uses this configuration for explosive sprints.  You can enjoy this type of bicycle racing every four years during the summer Olympics on a banked oval track.
