Fixed Vs Single Speed | How Hard Can You Ride A Fixed Gear Mountain Bike?

Fixed Vs Single Speed | How Hard Can You Ride A Fixed Gear Mountain Bike?

We made Blake ride a fixed gear mountain bike earlier this year, but he broke it shredding before we could find out if it was any good. This time we wanted to find out exactly how it compares to a single speed. Yes you can ride a fixed gear MTB but why would you want to?

What else should we make Blake try? Let us know in the comments below 👇
