Q. What’s the difference between fixed-gear (fixie) and single-speed?
A. Both have no gears but the key difference is that on a fixie the pedals are constantly turning where as on a single speed the pedals can “coast”, meaning that the legs not only work more but never stop working. Fixed gear also gives you the possibility to ride with no breaks since you can slow the bike down by applying backwards force on the pedals. That in itself opens up the door to all kinds of tricks, making fixed-gear riding a whole new sport and the kind of riding that needs to be learnt as if you were learning to ride a bike again.
Q. Yea but I want brakes, can I have brakes?
A. Yes. We can add a front and/or back brake on your bike, just let us know which you prefer after you order.
Q. What can I customize on the bike?
A. Once you place your order, you can e-mail us asking to change the shape of the handlebars (flat, drop or pursuit), the gearing (freewheel and/or fixed-gear), the color of a certain part (black/ white), the amount of brakes (none, 1 and/ or 2) and the addition of straps.
Q. What’s in the box?
A. Every Kingdom bike comes in a specially designed box with the bicycle half assembled, the instructions to finish assembling and the tools to do so.

Q. Why do the riders in your pictures sometimes not wear helmets?
