Retrospec Harper Single Speed & Fixie bicycle

Hop on the next generation of commuter bikes; sleek, stylish, eye-catching, and low-maintenance. This is Retrospec Harper fixie bike. Our take on single-speed/fixed riding is your new go-to for commuting, coasting, and cruising far beyond point A to point B.
Harper is your two-for-one sidekick. With a quick flip of the back wheel, Harper turns from a single-speed cruise to a fixed-gear ride. Riding fixed has its advantages (including a total-body workout) but it’s not necessary to ride that way if you don’t enjoy it. Switch it up again with a quick flip of the rear wheel. Fixed-gear bikes famously have fewer moving parts so you can keep moving.
Top Notch Componentry
We’re not interested in anything but the best. Retrospec Harper fixie sports top-of-the-line components for smooth sailing and effortless riding.
VP freestyle pedals, KMC ⅛” chain, 25.4mm riser handlebars, front and rear Promax brakes, help you maintain total control of your ride. 30mm Deep V rims and thick, stable tires ensure a smooth ride, gripping to city streets regardless of conditions.
Safer Than Ever
Harper is equipped with front and rear Promax brakes. Stay in control of your ride, your speed, and your stopping with its precise and rapid responses.
Kenda City tires are equipped for dependable city street riding. Measuring 700x28c, they’re more puncture resistant, and better at absorbing shock on uneven pavement and urban streets.
Pave the way for uninterrupted riding and deliberate navigating with deep-V rims with machined braking surface, a KMC chain, and freestyle pedals.
Riser handlebars encourage an upright ride, taking the strain off your back and allowing you to stay on the road longer.
Flip flop between fixed and single speed
One Bike, Two Ways to Ride
Your single-speed bike can quickly shift into an edgy, urban chariot. Flip around and remount the back wheel to ride fixed. Fixed-gear closely and intimately links you to your bike. With every movement you make, or don’t make, your bike responds. Fixed-gear bikes are rooted in urban minimalism. Their simplicity of both design and maintenance make them ideal for urban commuters and rebellious riders. Fixed-gear / single-speed bikes are very responsive, letting you focus more on your ride and less on how your bike is performing; because you know it’s performing well.
