The Single speed, or fixed, mountain bike has a reputation for being the “hardcore” ride. The biggest reason for this could be the greater difficulty in climbing hills and keep momentum on trails where you must speed up and slow down without gear any support. But, the truth is you don’t have to be an experienced mountain biker to enjoy the benefits of the MTB.
Furthermore, there are some specific advantages to a Single Speed Mountain Bicycle. With the cash you save from not buying the costly gear shift, you are free to invest in more exciting bike features like quality frames, improved wheels and tires or a top-notch braking system. In the end, this will improve the performance and functionality for some types of MTB.
