Description

Fixed

Fixed-gear cycling has today become the coolest form of urban transport, giving rise to a global fixed-gear culture.

Fixed is the first book to document fixed-gear cycling. The authors have traveled to cities around the world to examine at first hand the intersections between the fixed-gear bike's design and its racing heritage, and the street style and customization that are at the heart of its current popularity.

Interviews with sports-people, frame-builders, and those at the nexus of design, art, and fixed-gear culture give an insight into fixed-wheel design, philosophy, and riding experience. The book will appeal to cyclistsfixed-gear riders, urban riders, racers, and those interested in cycling heritageas well as to a wider design audience.
