Special thanks to Johnny and L.A. Brakeless. Find them online here:

After years of bike messengering and racing, I’ve had many many bikes. I still do. From track to road to city to cyclocross to bmx, bikes are my passion (duh). I get TONS of questions on this topic so I thought I’d start with the basics. I will make a follow up video on this so if you have more specific Q’s leave them in the comments below!

KymNonStop is a bike-messenger-turned-fitness guru. I’m a master instructor at SoulCycle and race for the Aventon Factory Team. I also did stunts in the fixie famous flick Premium Rush with Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

On this channel, I’ll show you how to lead a healthy, happy lifestyle without sacrificing the fun! Get ready for easy and effective workouts that you’re going to love to do.

Needed to touch base on why buying a ‘Bicycle’ from a big box store is a bad idea, as someone who used to build those long ago I can attest that those monstrosities are NOT bikes.

Also this video lacked some chill skids on that pure fix(don’t buy)

Cool of you to make this video doe! Also please say you’re coming to Milwaukee for the Courier Championship

Lock it through the frame my dude, better yet use 2 locks for each wheel and thread them thru the fame… dk about fixed gear but both mtb wheels are quick release

Brian Michael says:

Hi Kym.. Ive rode bikes since I was 5yrs old.. BUT.. last bike I owned was a Peugeot Mountain Bike that was bought for me in 1991.. Kept it till the mid 2000’s but haven’t really rode in 15yrs.. I had put it through hell and it needed work.. so I sold it.. cheap..
Thinking back I should have just upgraded the parts.. the frame was still good.. But here I am.. now overweight out of shape and 40.. looking to get back into riding.. Im looking for something thats a jack of all trades.. road, dirt and some trail.. I live near the beaches in Pinellas county FL.. clearwater… Tampa.. not many hills.. pretty flat… but I dont want a road bike.. I considered Hybrid and Cross Country Bikes.. and strongly set on the Giant Brand..
Ive looked at the models: Cypress, Sedona, Roam.. which is about where my budget is.. Though if I could find a used Fathom or XTC.. that would be great too.

Dokata Kidd says:

A wheel is a rim with a tire on it. Apparently they are able to change wheels but not rims or tires. ;-;
And you also forgot, rims, tires, headsets, bearings, brakes, cables, grips, forks, stems, seat posts, seat clamps, gyros and brake tabs.

Don John says:

is 6k bikes okey ?

David Dalisay says:

Thank you it helps me 🙂

Adam Wallwork says:

Is a 61cm fixed gear bike good size for a 6’4 dude?

Abdoul Diallo says:

hey Kim, my roommate and got robbed and among the things taken was my vintage bike. I have since gotten a new bike and wondering if you had any recommendations for a bike digital tracker in case my bike gets stolen again. I do have a U-lock but when my bike got stolen, it was taken from the inside the house.
