  • Fixed Gear Bikes

    At RoadBikeOutlet, you will discover a great selection of fixed gear road bikes. Fixies are a great choice for commuting, college students, city dwellers, or anyone looking for a basic, simple-looking and easy to maintain bike.

    Nearly every bike in our fixed gear category has a flip-flop hub. Our fixies ship configured as single speed bikes. In order to convert the bike to a fixed gear, start by removing the rear wheel. Loosen the 2 nuts from the axle on the rear wheel. Slide it forward, take the chain off, flip it over to the 'fixed' gear side and re-install.

    When you ride using the free wheel you are able to coast or stop pedaling. Alternatively, when using the fixed gear side, the rear wheel moves and your pedals move with it. This means when you pedal it forward or backward, the wheel will move in that direction.

    If you purchase a fixed gear bike (or any bike) from RoadBikeOutlet, consider adding the pro-build service. Our professional bike mechanics will fully inspect, assemble and tune your bicycle, then disassemble the bicycle just enough to fit it back into the shipping box, add more packing protection, and secure all movable parts to prevent any damage that might occur during transit.

    Of course you may assemble your fixed gear bike yourself. We have many helpful assembly videos and tips available. If you do choose to assemble your fixie on your own, be sure to bring it to a qualified bike mechanic for a final tuning and safety check.

    No gears = easy maintenance!  A fixed gear bike is an awesome choice if you’re looking for a relatively lightweight bike with nice, clean lines. RoadBikeOutlet is sure to have the fixed gear bike for you.

  • The Vilano 2 in 1 Balance Bike Kid’s Pedal Bicycle

    Learning to ride a bike has never been easier for children than with the Vilano 2 in 1 Balance Bike Kid’s Pedal Bicycle.

    Children can learn to balance with minimal help. A balance bike (or push bike) is a bike with no pedals which a child sits on and propels by walking or running. With pedaling out of the picture, children may fully concentrate on balancing with the confidence of having their feet close to the ground.

    The Vilano 2 in 1 Balance Bike Kid’s Pedal Bicycle comes in vivid pink and cool blue. It has an adjustable seat and handlebars for a perfect fit as your child grows. This convertible bike has 12" pneumatic tires and includes a handlebar pad, bell and training wheels.

    Once the child is comfortable cruising on the balance bike, he/she will be ready in no time to pedal! To convert the Vilano 2 in 1 from balance bike to a pedal bike, simply add the crank and training wheels, and then adjust the rear wheel in the dropout.

    Remember, basic bike safety rules apply to children too! Children should always wear a helmet and stay away from traffic. Starting children early on a balance bike can lead them to a lifetime love for biking as a great form of exercise and physical activity.

    Available at RoadBikeOutlet.com, the Vilano 2 in 1 Balance Bike Kid’s Pedal Bicycle is a great way to learn, and ride!
