Fixed


Fixed gear cycling has 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 traveled to cities around the world to examine the fixed gear bike's design, 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 the fixed wheel design, philosophy, and riding experience. The book will appeal to cyclists, fixed gear riders, urban riders, racers, and those interested in cycling heritage - as well as to a wider design audience.
