Dreamed up by urban cyclists, check out our fast, agile single speed city bike! A fixie look with the utilitarian functions of a city bike.
Our desire? Finally making an accessible and good urban bike that's agile, fast, and compatible with fixie use (flip flop hub). A lightweight, fast, single-speed bike that's perfect for city rides. An agile bike with narrow handlebars and a short stem for weaving everywhere.
Cartridge brakes for a feeling of confidence on your bike. Wide tyres and a good grip on the pedals for riding with confidence. A Flip Flop hub for transitioning to fixie by buying a fixed gear and locknut.
Want to get from point A to point B as quickly as possible? A single speed is made for you. At just 11.6 kg, this bike offers all the light weight you need for riding quickly through town. The streamlined design, stiff steel frame, and 44x18 development give it the responsiveness you're looking for.
It was designed with high-quality components for the best feelings as you ride. With its steel fork, the single speed 500 absorbs impacts perfectly, easily tackling kerbs and other obstacles to tame the city! Its 520mm aluminium handlebars, as well as the 60mm aluminium stem, are assets for weaving through town as they increase your bike's responsiveness. Its 18T freewheel specific to FIXIE/BMX 30 steps (rather than 20 for a standard freewheel) provides better performance and balance.
While the speed 500 lets you ride fast, it also has excellent braking. Its calliper-type road brakes with cartridge pads increase the rigidity of the levers and provide better responsiveness and effective braking. This bike has aluminium wheels with double-walled rims, and its tyres (30 TPI weave) have nylon protection that greatly increases their puncture resistance.
The bike is sold as a single speed. If you want to use it as a fixie, it has a flip/flop compatible rear hub. To switch to fixie mode, you need to buy the screw-on fixed cog (24 TPI threading, 1.37" diameter, standard) and the locknut (24 TPI, 1.29" diameter).
Then turn the wheel. Frame made from Hi Ten steel with 120 mm axle for the rear wheel. Fork made from Hi Ten steel with 100 mm axle for the front wheel.
622x17C ETRTO double-walled Wheel allowing you to use 25 to 37 mm tyres. 700x32 mm skinwall 30 TPI TYRE with nylon anti-puncture protection. Flip flop Hub at the rear for switching to a fixed cog.
Standard M10 screws. 60 mm aluminium Stem. 500 mm aluminium Handlebar.
Sport 100 Saddle. 25.4 mm aluminium Seatpost with welded seat clamp, which doesn't allow you to orient the saddle, but makes it much more durable over time. Grip 520 mountain bike Pedals.
44T aluminium Chainset with 170 mm crank. 18T BMX-style 30-step Freewheel. Single-speed rust-proof 1/2" x 1/8" CHAIN.
THUN TOPAZ 119 mm Bottom Bracket. Calliper-type road Brakes with stiff cartridge brake pads... more details.

City Bikes are a decent investment for urban riders - suitable for roads, parks and canal paths, as well as light excursions off-road, they're a good all rounder. Alternatively if you're more serious about speed, I've got quite a few Road Bikes listed, and for the dirt junkies amongst us, a decent selection of Mountain bikes too.
