What is the difference between a single speed and a fixed speed? Seems like they should be synonymous terms. Am I correct that they are preferred for city riding and wouldn't be real efficient on hills or rolling terrain? Is their major attribute the reduced maintenance in relation to multi speed bikes? What was my 1950s/1960s Schwinn fat tire with no gears and coaster brakes considered?
Thanks in advance for not attacking my lack of knowledge. LOL
