Im a total noob and i just need this answered if you please.
Do fixie bikes have brakes on them or not?
For example, if you purchased lets say a Felt Brougham straight from the store, would it have brakes? (i thought i read it was illegal for a bike to not have brakes) and if it does have brakes, what kind of brakes are on them? (all I know are 2 different kinds of brakes; 1) pedal backward to brake, and 2) brakes on the handlebars/triggers.
I know I am a total noob but would like to be more informed on this I have searched but for some reason haven't really been able to find answers to my questions.
Thanks in advance for any questions or comments
