The wheel of a fixie bike, like the rim, plays a crucial role in the overall functioning of the bike. Here is a presentation of its function and characteristics:

Function :

The wheel of a fixie bike performs several essential functions:

1. Power transmission:

Just like a standard bicycle wheel, the wheel of a fixie bike is responsible for transmitting the power generated by the rider to move the bike forward. However, in the specific case of a fixie, the wheel is directly linked to the pedaling movements, which means that it must be designed to withstand the stresses imposed by this configuration.

2. Speed ​​and direction control:

The wheel plays a crucial role in controlling the speed and direction of the bike. On a fixie, the rider can brake by applying retrograde pressure to the pedals, meaning the wheel must be able to handle these braking forces without compromising the rider's stability or safety.

Features :

The features of a fixie bike wheel can vary depending on rider preference, riding style and riding conditions, but here are some key things to consider:

1. Strength and durability:

As with rims, fixie bike wheels must be strong and durable enough to withstand the added stresses imposed by the fixed gear setup.

2. Fixed or flip-flop hub:

Fixie wheels often have a fixed hub on one side and a free-sprocket (flip-flop) hub on the other side. This allows the rider to choose between fixed gear or free gear riding by simply reversing the wheel.

3. Rays:

Wheel spokes may vary in number, material and tension. More and tighter spokes can make the wheel stronger and improve its resistance to twisting and braking forces.

4. Tyres:

Fixie wheels can be equipped with different types of tires depending on the rider's preferences and riding conditions, including slick tires for fast road riding or knobby tires for riding on rough terrain.

5. Aesthetics:

As with rims, aesthetics also play an important role when choosing fixie wheels. Riders can choose from a variety of colors, finishes and designs to personalize the look of their bike.

In summary, a fixie bike wheel should be strong, durable, able to withstand braking and power transmission forces, while providing the option of choosing between fixed gear or free gear driving.
