Rossin Prestige Italian racing heritage fixed gear bike.

A fixed gear bicycle doesn't have a freewheel (don't worry, they're not all as weird-looking as the one in the picture that illustrates this post - I just couldn't resist that funny-looking basket).

Three or four years ago, London was full of fixed gear bikes. But, according to bike shop owners around the UK capital, that particular wave has broken and rolled back.

Fixie" is short for “fixed gear,” which is a slang term for bicycles that have drivetrains with one gear that's fixed to the rear wheel so that you cannot coast and must continue pedaling whenever the bike's moving.
