Best Single-Speed Bikes for Riding Anywhere

We review a variety of fixies and single-speed bikes for any price point, though we stop short of diving headlong into the world of custom builds. These are all available as of 2021.

6KU Fixie

Its budget-friendly price point and sturdy steel frame let you put the extra cash towards tinkering and upgrading the 6KU Fixie. 


Golden Cycles Fixie

These feature clean lines, surprisingly solid BMX pedals, an array of cool colors, and an overall lightweight package.


2022 Mercier Kilo TT

One of the most hyped fixed-gear bikes on the Internet, and for good reason. The Kilo TT serves as an entry point for folks who are more seriously interested in fixies as a hobby and way of life. 


State Bicycle Co Bernard Fixed Gear Bike

Popular with commuters, this model’s 4130 Chromoly frame offers rigidity similar to steel but without the extra weight. 


Aventon Cordoba

It deserves a spot on your radar for its tapered head tube, flip-flop hub, carbon bladed fork, and 6061 alloy frame.


All-City Cycles Thunderdome

It’s classy on the eyes, but mean on the streets when you’re laying down the power. Exceptional paint and polish makes you stand out in the velodrome.


Specialized Langster

Super stiff Axis Sport Track wheels, a FACT carbon fork, and a top-tier aluminum frame offer incredible handling and speed.
