FORT COLLINS, Colo., Oct. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- If you're looking for a functional yet fun gift for the young adult in your life, a popular "fixie" may be just what you're looking for.
More and more people are finding their way back on to bicycles. Whether for sustainability, exercise, or the sheer joy of riding, bicycling and the bike culture is enjoying a comeback into the mainstream.
One innovative company is helping to spearhead that comeback, making fixies a great idea for gifts this season. Big Shot Bikes, based in Fort Collins, Colo., specializes in single-speed and fixed-gear bicycles, or fixies, as they are affectionately called. If you've seen a young person fly by on a colorful bike, it was probably a fixie or a single-speed. More hip than a cruiser, with less moving parts than a mountain or road bike, single speeds and fixies offer the perks of owning a bike without the troublesome maintenance associated with other types.
At the Big Shot Bikes website, customers can build a custom bike and have it delivered in less than three weeks for under $400. Customers can select from a wide range of colors for most bike components including the frame, fork, front and back rims and the saddle. With three separate frame sizes to choose from, Big Shot is able to build a bike for anyone between 5'2" and 6'3".
What separates Big Shot from its competitors is its on-line customization tool. Customers can choose from thousands of different configurations to make their own unique Big Shot Bike. The customization tool gives customers the ability to design their bikes and to see what they will look like upon completion. If a customer needs inspiration, there's even an option to view the last 30 bikes that other customers have built.
