What is a flip flop hub?
First, know the difference between a fixie and a single-speed. With a fixie, there’s no coasting. When your bike’s in motion, so are your legs. (Hardcore fixie riders don’t even run brakes, they simply use their superhuman thighs to decelerate and eventually screech to a halt.)
Single-speed bikes only have one gear too, but that gear is mounted to a free-wheel that’ll let you coast — an indispensable feature if you live near any hills. Most, if not all, fixed-gear bicycles nowadays are equipped with “flip-flop” rear hubs that carry a fixed gear on one side and a freewheel on the other, allowing you to switch between the two by simply flipping the wheel around
