    fixed gear
  • a cog attached to a hub without a freewheel; it always turns with the wheel---no coasting

  • A fixed-gear bicycle (or fixed-wheel bicycle, commonly known in the USA as a fixie) is a bicycle that has no freewheel, meaning it cannot coast — the pedals are always in motion when the bicycle is moving.

  • A direct drive system, used on track bikes, in which the chain ring and rear cog are linked, so that the pedals turn constantly while the bicycle is moving, and coasting isn't possible.

  • (of an event, action, or process) Come to an end; cease to happen

  • fillet: fastener consisting of a narrow strip of welded metal used to join steel members

  • (stop) the event of something ending; "it came to a stop at the bottom of the hill"

  • Abandon a specified practice or habit

  • Cease to perform a specified action or have a specified experience

  • the kind of playing that involves pressing the fingers on the strings of a stringed instrument to control the pitch; "the violinist's stopping was excellent"

A bicycle messenger falls in love with a fellow-messenger who has become involved with a drug-dealer.
Genre: Feature Film-Action/Adventure
Rating: PG
Release Date: 7-DEC-2004
Media Type: DVD

A hotshot stockbroker bets it all--and loses it all--in one day, effectively ruining all his customers while ending his career. So, naturally, he turns to that old stockbroker standby: he becomes a bicycle messenger. Kevin Bacon may have made this film simply to extend the strands of the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon game; it's hard to imagine any other reason. Otherwise, this mid-'80s film stands as yet another example of a movie influenced by MTV without understanding what MTV does. Eventually, Bacon leads the exploited masses of messengers in an uprising against unfair labor practices by the evil bosses. There's an original concept. Notable as yet another film to give a role to the dazzlingly untalented Jami Gertz. --Marshall Fine

Fixed Gear

Fixed Gear

I don't put cards in my spokes. I follow traffic laws. I don't do tricks. I've even started wearing a helmet for the first time in my life.

A few years back I was fixing a messed up deraileur and decided I didn't like having things that brake easily on my bike. I turned my bike into a single speed. I liked it a lot but I still wasn't satisfied.

I saw a messenger riding by and noticed he didn't even have brakes. I loved how his bike looked and the idea of having even less on my bike. I didn't even know it was called fixed gear. When I went home I got online and searched the internet until I found Sheldon Brown's guide to fixed gear bicycles. That was around 2002 I think.

I soon fixed my bike and loved it. At the time, when I was stopped at traffic lights people in cars would lean out their window and ask me about my bike.
"You're bike looks sweet, but you've got no brakes. How do you stop?" Ordering this one, the UPS driver said "You're one of those fixie guys, huh? I keep trying to get my son to put a brake on his." Don't suppose I'll have to explain it anymore.

I didn't have brakes until I came back from Korea and my dad told me someone on a fixed gear got a ticket for not having one. From Korea I never even realized how popular (and hated) fixed gear had gotten.

I have two now.

I really think it's great that so many people love fixed gear bikes, as long as they aren't being total asses. Riding a bike isn't like your favorite underground band - it's better for you, as a cyclists, to have as many other people enjoy cycling as possible. I saw someone compair fixed bikes to SUVs the other day- actually fixed bicycles are the opposite of SUVs. More bikes = less pollution/less traffic/more aware drivers.

Longbownsnyper took my photo with my camera. I had to have a camera around my neck, so I used his Pentax Spotmatic as a prop. We were touring the Indiana Dunes from Michigan City to Portage, IN on our fixed gear bikes. Here, we are at Portage Lake Front Park. The Chicago Skyline is in the distance and the wonderfully designed park pavilion in the midground. We each had totally manual 35mm cameras with 50 mm lenses and no light meters. The combination of fixed gear bikes and manual film cameras made for a fine Vintage day.

Photographed on Kodak Tri-X 400 film using a Nikon F with a Yellow Wratten 8 filter and polarizer on a Nikkor 50mm f/2 lens. Exposure was by Sunny 16 -2 stops to account for the filters. The camera was at f/5.6 for this shot for better depth of field control.

The key is a series of gentle exercises and carefully constructed stretches called E-cises. Inside you'll find detailed photographs and step-by-step instructions for dozens of e-cizes specifically designed to provide quick and lasting relief of:

Lower back pain, hip problems, sciatica, and bad knees
Carpal tunnel syndrome and even some forms of arthritis
Migraines and other headaches, stiff neck, fatigue, sinus problems, vertigo, and TMJ
Shin splints, varicose veins, sprained or weak ankles, and many foot ailments
Bursitis, tendinitis, and rotator cuff problems
Plus special preventive programs for maintaining health through the entire body.
With this book in hand, you're on your way to regaining the greatest gift of all: a pain-free body! With the help of Pete Egoscue's revolutionary program of quick stretches and strength-building exercises, you can cure chronic pain, and do it naturally.

Pete Egoscue has shown thousands of individuals, corporations, schools, and championship sports teams how to eliminate pain without investing in expensive ergonomic devices or resorting to surgery or drug therapies. His groundbreaking book, with nearly 50,000 hardcover copies sold, shows readers how to:

Relieve lower back pain
Improve hip problems, sciatica, and bad knees
Relieve migraines and other headaches, stiff neck, fatigue, sinus problems, vertigo, and TMJ
Relieve painful problems, like carpal tunnel syndrome, often misdiagnosed as arthritis
Prevent injuries and maintain health through stretching programs for the entire body
Filled with easy instructions, photos, and line illustrations throughout, this book will provide quick, effective pain relief.

Pete Egoscue learned a lot about pain when, as a Marine officer, he was wounded in Vietnam. He segued from patient to physical therapist, and now runs a famous clinic in San Diego, where he claims he's helped 95 percent of his patients cure chronic pain--including Jack Nicklaus and Charles Barkley, whose athletic careers he helped prolong. At the heart of his program are stretches and motion exercises to restore proper function to muscles and joints. His methods are often surprising and counterintuitive. For example, for foot pain, he sests a series of hip exercises. In fact, this is one of the most startling books you'll read about the human organism. Egoscue has strong opinions about how modern life is changing the way our bodies function, reducing the tasks we must perform and thus reducing the functional range of motion of our muscles and joints. Fortunately, he offers movement exercises to restore what nature meant us to have.
