Electric fixie is a fixed gear bicycle with an electric motor, knows how to climb hills
Fixies, or fixed wheel bikes, are simpler and preferred by many riders. With their fixed gear transmission and one or no brakes, these two-wheelers are very popular on the velodrome. They can also be used on the roads, but they usually need to have at least one, if not both, brakes, depending on the country you are driving them in. Due to their simple design, they are great for winter use as they are low maintenance and have fewer parts to be damaged by water, salt, etc. They also force you to keep exercising and stay warm because you are continually pedaling.
This type of wheeled vehicle is also a great city transport vehicle, as long as you don’t live in hilly cities like San Francisco. But you can even get away with it as long as you ride an electric fixie. Designed by Andrey Avgust, a Belarus-based guy with a bachelor’s degree in industrial design, the Electric Fixie was created specifically to solve the problem of riding a fixed-gear bicycle in cities with hilly landscapes like the aforementioned San Francisco.
The bike works like a regular fixie, but it adds an electric motor to create extra traction. It has one gear, electric drive and no brakes, it comes with regenerative braking to allow battery recovery, and the percentage of acceleration and recovery can be adjusted from the handlebars.
As for the Electric Fixie’s battery, it weighs just under 4 lbs (1.8 kg) and is placed inside the frame triangle.
The Electric Fixie is so far just a beautiful design, which took its creator 130 days to complete. The design of the bike is for sale, although the price is not mentioned. You can contact Andrey Avgust for more details.
