Summertime is a glorious time of year – the time for grilling, heading to the beach, and dusting off that rad bike that’s been sitting in the corner all winter! There’s tons of styles for whatever terrain you fancy, but as city dwellers with perfect bike riding season all year round, we’ve gotta admit that we’re suckers for fixed gear bikes for our cycling needs.
We’ve still got a soft spot for beach cruisers perfect for the boardwalks of SoCal, but if you’re headed around town or to the nearest new tavern in South Park, fixed gear bikes are the most stylish and hippest mode of transportation on two wheels. With a plethora of sick bike shops all over town like Adams Avenue Bikes, Bike Revolution, Thomas Bike Shop, Mission Hills Bikes, and Cal Coast, there’s definitely no shortage of selection. As an added bonus, the San Diego Velodrome is one of the top racing spots geared towards fixed gear bikes, so fixed gear enthusiasts come from all around the country to enjoy the bicycle culture of San Diego.
Long story short, we dig fixed gear bikes and everything about them. If you love bikes and bike culture as much as we do, check out our bike art collection here – we’ve got canvas wall art and removable wall stickers featuring bikes galore! What better way to enjoy bike life even at home?
