Roadie VS Fixie | GCN’s Bicycle Courier Challenge
Bicycle couriers typically use reliable, sturdy bikes to get around cities as quickly as possible. A lot of them choose to use fixies thanks to their simplicity and robustness. But why wouldn't they use a road bike? Surely it's faster? In this video, Hank challenges fixed gear legend Alec Briggs to a race across Bristol to find out whether roadies or fixies are the best choice for bike couriers.
