Why Single Speed Bikes Are Appealing

Why Single Speed Bikes Are Appealing

February 13, 2020

There are more options out there on the market for bikers than ever before. Regardless of whether you are buying or renting, there has never been more diversity in materials, capabilities or just plain choice of products. Bikers can choose carbon or titanium frames or different gear ratios, just to name a few options out there.

Particularly, single speed bike rental in Naples, FL is one area of biking that we have seen explosive growth in over recent years. These have seen a rebirth of sorts, and more and more of our customers are choosing them as an option that they want to pursue.

What is a single speed bike?

Simply put, a single speed bike is a bike that has no gear cables or shifters. Our seasoned team can help you navigate the differences more specifically, but that’s the simplest answer. This heightens the simplicity of the bike while having the nice added benefit of reducing the cost. Better quality components are possible, but since fewer parts are required, manufacturers are able to offer them at lower prices than might be expected.

Single speed bike rentals in Naples, FL are a great option for many bikers because we’ve found that a lot of cyclists quite simply do not use all that many gears on the  bikes they might be more accustomed to, and soon find out that they never really miss them. They can be an unnecessary addition to a bike, and many customers at Big Momma’s Bicycles find that single speed bikes offer a purer, more pared-down experience.

Why choose a single speed bike?

As mentioned above, single speed bike rentals in Naples, FL are a popular option for cost, first and foremost. But if you’re looking deeper into it, a single speed bike could be a good fit for you for several more reasons. Since there are fewer parts, that means there are far fewer things that can potentially go wrong with the bike. This is true of any machine, of course, but it rings particularly true for these bicycles. The parts on a multi-speed bike can fail at any time, leaving you stranded on the side of the road and generally just ruining your day.

Problems with shifters and rear derailleurs are some of the most common issues that can plague bikers, and the idea of not having to deal with these parts whatsoever is something that is music to the ears of many. Single speed bikes let you have the chance to just check the chain tension and the pressure in both of the tires, and work a bit with the brakes, and you are off to the races (or at least a leisurely ride around town).

Single speed bikes are an increasing viable option due to their simplicity and ease of use. They appeal to many different types of people and offer a brand-new way to experience biking in the world. Renting one could be a fantastic opportunity to work with a new bicycling technique that could be your new favorite.
