Why I ride a single speed bicycle? I ride single speed bikes because... It is my preferred riding style, and less to think about. I like the clean bicycle look, and it is quiet. There are less things to go wrong, less components to tune and maintain. The ride is enjoyable especially when equipped with your favorite gear. It is a good way to train your muscles as well as learn to spin faster. I think everyone should have at least one single speed bicycle in their collection. Thanks for watching!

Today, we take my tired old hardtail mountain bike and turn it into a unique and fun shredding machine! Step one, switch out the 140mm suspension fork for a 150mm, and then take off all the gears. Yep, this video is for all of you single speeders out there. I've been to the dark side before, and I ain't going back. This bike is staying as a single speed for skatepark, street riding, trail shredding, and hiking—'cause this thing can't climb worth a sh*t!!! Bike Park at End Kolo Bike Park in Asheville Adventure Center. Single speeders ride for $5 all day Saturday!

This is no good for climbing, but I need it for sprinting. With a single speed you need to choose and commit!

I show to convert a vintage road bike to make a single speed bike. This is not a fixie, but a single speed bike with a singlespeed freewheel. I show the process of removing the derailleurs, freewheel, etc. Installing the new freewheel, adjusting the axle spacing to straighten the chainline, and re-dishing the wheel. Yep, there is an editing mistake. See if you can spot it. **If the video was useful or interesting please give it a "thumbs up" and consider subscribing. -T-Shirts: https://www.amazon.com/gp/search?keywords=%22rj+the+bike+guy%22&tag=youtube25-20 -Website: http://www.RJTheBikeGuy.com -Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/RJTheBikeGuy -Subscribe Here: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=shyflirt1 -YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/RJTheBikeGuy

And if you use a nice bike and better parts instead of a rusty old Peugeot and a chain from a garage door opener, your single-speed might actually be rideable.

Together again! I converted my Diamondback commuter bike to singlespeed again! Why? Because I can't quit single speed. This bike came stock 20 speed, I converted to to 1 speed, then 2 speed, now 1 speed again! It is my rain bike / ice bike. After removing all the multi speed parts I just try my best to get a perfect chain lined up between the front sprocket and rear sprocket with some hub spacers, and choose a gear combination that allows me to ride without a chain tensioner (52x19 for me). I must replace the bike chain every few hundred miles because it wears/stretches too much to stay on securely without a chain tensioner.

I cycled 196 miles from Liverpool to Barry on a single speed bike! https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/liverpooltobarry Instagram - http://bit.ly/SLMansbridgeI Twitter - http://bit.ly/SLMansbridgeT Facebook - http://bit.ly/SamMansbridgeFB Snapchat - sammanbre On the 18th of July I embarked on my biggest challenge to date. I cycled from my flat in Liverpool all the way to my hometown Barry. The whole idea of the ride came from the True Geordie podcast, he had a guest called James Ketchell. He was first man to row across the Atlantic, Climb Mount Everest and cycle around the world. His story really inspired me and I knew I had to do something similar. It's not quite cycling around the world but it something I thought I'd never do. To justify doing the ride I decided to raise some money for charity. So far we've managed to raise £600 for Mind the Mental Health charity which is incredible! I hope you enjoy video as it took hours to make but I loved every second! Sam

I got a free road bike! From what I can tell it was built in 2001. The bike has a few problems but should be good for my commute once I fix these issues. Join me on this project as I get this bike in shape for the winter commuting season. A lot of today's project was around converting the bike to single speed while not wanting to buy any parts, so it's a poor mans single speed conversion.

While in Tennessee, my friend Rosa took me out for my first ride on a single speed. I learned a lot . It's one thing to know you should lay off the breaks to maintain your momentum and use your energy wisely but there's something about hopping on a single speed that really drives the point home. I exceeded my worst expectations on this ride and I can definitely see the appeal of having one of these around to train on. Too bad I don't have room for one more bike in the van. *sigh* Subscribe and become a dusty betty today. And don't forget to visit http://www.dustybetty.com/ Interested in the gear I use?

There is one golden rule to remember when fixie riding! Keep your legs moving! If you’re riding along and just ‘stop’ pedalling, the force and momentum in your wheels, cranks and legs will be enough to throw you up over the bars and onto the ground. Get comfy on the bike. To start with we would recommend a saddle height around 0.5cm lower than you would normally run on your road bike. This will help with moving around on the saddle whilst you apply braking force backwards through the pedals, but it will also make it easier to move your body weight around for cornering and general technical maneuvers.

Here's the Fixed Gear Gearing Guide. To find the gearing that's best for you, we need to understand some gearing basics. Gearing is measured in what's called gear inches. The higher the gear inches, the harder it will be to pedal but the faster you'll go. To increase your gear inches, increase the number of teeth on your chainring or decrease the number of teeth on your cog. Tire size will also affect gearing a little bit. Gearing will influence your riding style by affecting your cadence and your bike's resistance. Your ideal gearing will depend on your strength, the terrain you ride, whether you like to spin or mash, whether you're riding with brakes or not, how rough of surfaces you'll be riding, how much weight you'll be carrying, the list goes on. There's no one correct gearing for one person, let alone everybody. Gearing is highly subjective and whatever you think is the best ratio IS your best ratio. Generally, people are most comfortable and efficient pedaling between 75-90 revolutions per minute (RPM). That's about one and a half to two pedal strokes every second. I recommend choosing a gearing that's low enough to get you up the steepest hills you'll ride but is as high as you can go without having to get off and walk your bike. 50-70 gear inches is low gearing and good if you mostly do climbing or carry a lot of weight. 75-85ish gear inches is medium gearing and is the sweet spot for a lot of people. 75-85 gear inches are good for 50/50 climbing and flat riding or mostly flat riding. 90-120 gear inches is high gearing. This is for racing and trying to break records. If you're just riding around town, don't go higher than 90 gear inches since too high a gearing can lead to injury with knee injuries being the most common. The best way to find which gearing is best for your needs and riding style is to try out different gearing. Use the gear inch calculator to find out what your gearing is, so you can have a reference point. Buy some cheap cogs from a friendly bike shop, swap them out, and have a blast crushing the terrain on your fixed gear.

This geared bike cyclist races Bike Blogger on his single speed bike and wins, oh wait... The cyclist was drafting me at the beginning of the video because I could hear his wheel and when I looked back there he was up close and personal. I let the cyclist pass, but couldn't catch up as the trail got busy. I saw him again on the other side of the park, and then there was a hill... It's not the machine, it's the engine driving it. I like cyclists, but wheel suckers, on the bike trail no less... Be careful on those multi use paths, it's not a race - had to say it. Note: Maybe the cyclist thought I was saying hi to the other cyclist waiting by the trail? Lots of cyclists now that the weather is nice! Tip: If you race you know it's to your advantage to ride with the pack, and then breakaway with a sprint at the finish. Video - Best Way To Pass Pedestrians On MUP?

I show in detail how to build a cheap fixed gear bike. I had multiple viewers asking for a video like this, and it was something I wanted to do. I used a threaded cog and lock ring to replace the freewheel on the original wheel. This style of conversion is called a "suicide fixie" or "suicide hub". The big risk with this design is the cog might spin off if you skid really hard. SO YOU MUST LEAVE A BRAKE OR BRAKES INSTALLED WITH THIS SETUP! TWO BRAKES WOULD PROBABLY BE BETTER. This was much cheaper than buying a new wheel with a track hub. The threaded cog cost about $6.50 on ebay. To keep the chain line straight, I re-spaced the hub and redished the wheel. I spent very little money building this bike. I used a bike that I had lying around, and I had a lot of the parts already. Many more things could be done with the bike. I want to paint it maybe next spring. The bike is a Schwinn Sports Tourer from the early 70's. *You build and ride a bike like this at your own risk. Now as to the quick release hub. According to Sheldon Brown, using a quick release hub is NOT a problem for a fixie. He does advise that is you are going to use a quick release wheel, "to use a good quality enclosed-cam skewer." I have ridden it enough to say one way or the other. As to the Missing Link master link. I trust them more than pressing pins. And why would they be an issue? Pulling the link causes them to lock. It doesn't matter which direction they are pulled. The rivets have to be pushed together with some force to cause it to unlock. Not sure how that is supposed to happen just because it is on a fixie.

A short bike check on the current single speed mountain bike build. I used a DMR chain tensioner that is the most important part of the build. There will be a featured video on how to convert over to a single speed mountain bike but for now I wanted to throw this up to show a few of the viewers who have been interested. It's mainly a stock GT Ricochet Plus that has been stripped. Bottom bracket replaced and single chain ring added. Gear ratio for this bike is 34/20 and it feels about perfect for what I normally ride. Get out and create Your Own Adventure! See you tomorrow! Please thump that thumber.

On my way into work today I had no bike chain problems. If you ever convert your multi-geared bicycle to single speed and do not install a chain tensioner, expect to replace the chain more often than usual because the 'magic gear' setup depends on the exact correct chain tension. Right now my odometer reads 2600 miles, so we'll see how long it takes before the chain becomes too slack again. I will test out some different bicycle chains in the future to see if they last longer before stretching and going slack. Bonus tip: good chainline is also critical. Thanks for watching!

I bought a nice Koga Miyata race bike, that unfortunately had been converted to a fixie. I don't mind fixed geared bikes, but this seemed like a waste of a nice vintage race bike. So I decided to convert it back to have more gears. Originally the bike would have been 14 speed, but I updated to 20 speed (2x10) with Shimano 105 components. This video covers pretty much the whole build. The bike is a 1992 Koga Miyata Exerciser. **If the video was useful or interesting please give it a "thumbs up" and consider subscribing. -Website: http://www.RJTheBikeGuy.com -Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/RJTheBikeGuy -Subscribe Here: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=shyflirt1 -YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/RJTheBikeGuy

Aloha and welcome to the video today! Today I show you guys my single speed conversion on my Trek Superfly 5! This set up was very simple to do and took maybe an hour at most to disassemble the old set up and install the new conversion kit. The conversion kit with the tensioner, rear cog and spacers is a performance bike in house brand. The front chain ring and bash guard are both made by Race Face. I used a 1/8" chain, but you could use a 3/32" chain if you wanted. Current gearing is a 32 tooth chainring with a 20 tooth cog on the rear. I've loved the conversion and it makes such a difference to the bike in simplicity and ride-ability. If you're looking for a change on your bike, I highly recommend giving this a try! Thanks for watching today! If you have any comments, questions or suggestions feel free and post them below and I'll get back to you!

Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/monkeyshred/ Instagram: m0nkeyshred Twitter: m0nkeyshred Like the video? Don't forget to give it a thumbs up and subscribe for more! In this video, I convert a road bike that was previously converted to a single speed back to a geared bicycle. This bike is going to be a mile muncher on a charity ride so I was asked if I could put gears on it. Having not seen it before I asked a couple of questions; What is the frame spacing on the rear? 130mm is a good size for a road bike for 7+ gears. 125mm for 5/6 gears. I was curious to know if it was a genuine single speed because that would make the frame spacing around 110mm and would need to be “cold set” to accept anything larger. Does it have any “braze on” brackets or guides? It would help identify if it was previously geared up for gears or not. Fortunately for me it had all the right mounts and spacing and I had all the right gear so I set about converting from single speed to geared. It almost went completely smoothly but for one thing; the bottom bracket! The old axle was far too long to use with the “new” crankset but unfortunately I didn’t find that out until I’d fitted it and came to adjust the derailleur. There wasn’t enough swing so I had to strip it all down and fit the old cup and cone bottom bracket the groupset came with. The owner is happy with everything and riding around practicing for the charity ride!

After years of riding singlespeed bikes with a variety of cogs, spacers, and cassette lockrings, I decided it was time to try the Gear Clamp system. My hope was to find a great solution that would allow me to quickly change cogs before a singlespeed mountain bike race or during a bikepacking trip where a long climb or long flat section might leave me desiring just a slight change in gearing. I am very glad to easily change cogs without the cassette lock ring tool nor chain whip! Watch the entire video to hear my thoughts and full review of the Gear Clamp system. I share why I really like it and where my expectations were probably a little higher than maybe they should have been. MSRP: $29.95 "Two clamps on your freehub allow for a lighter weight single speed conversion. A 2.5mm allen bolt on each clamp allows fast, even trailside, gear swaps and chainline adjustment. 18 grams per pair. If using 15t Cogs or smaller, install two cassette spacers between the clamp and the cog. Use clamps with 16t Cogs and larger. Cassette Body Type: Shimano 9/10/SRAM." More information is available at www.GearClamp.com In the video, we show how the Gear Clamp height limits how tall the cogs need to be in order to clear the bolts and clamp material. Gear Clamp claims 15t or smaller need cassette spacers to run them, but I had issues keeping my chain on during my race with a high quality 16t aluminum cog at higher cadences of about 120 RPM. Other variables were definitely at play, which I mention in yhe video. When I switched to a different 16t steel cog, I had no issues. The 16t steel cog was just a little taller than the aluminum cog which obviously would help. If the cog seems close in height to the Gear Clamp bolt area, I highly recommend using a cassette spacer on each side of the cog to prevent potential any issues.

Is riding a single speed bike bad for the knees? Good technique is everything. Stand when climbing hills, do not remain seated. One gear means you cannot downshift to maintain an appropriate cadence, so give yourself more leverage and climb out of the saddle with your weight centered over the cranks. Choose a gear you are comfortable with climbing and spinning. My gear ratio is 2.75. You can get used to any gear, within reason. Use foot retention like clipless pedals, or clips and straps.

In order to find out the best single speed bikes reviews 2015, you can head over to the website at the top, but in basic terms: 1. Single speed bikes are very fun to ride. 2.

A single Speed Road bike can improve your health, (like every other bike, I know), but by using just a single gear crank set, your leg muscles will be working overtime...More leg work, more blood gets pumped, and you get a sense of satisfaction that only a single speed commuter bike owner can get ;P The reason I decided to make this pretty simple video, is because I own a fixed gear bike and I just want to let as many people know the benefits of finding the best single speed Bike on the market right now.
