So Just who is the Fixie rider? It's the buzz question that a lot of people want to know right now. If we're to believe some, then the Fixie rider is a horribly spoilt late twenty something male of affluent background. He's never been required to grow up and spends all of his pocket money on cool toys and fads in a never ending effort to be trendy. Cynics would say that the Fixie rider is a myth in the process of being invented by those people who want to sell stuff to rich kids; ie the brands. Through contemporary observation and the collaboration of those on the inside from Taiwan to New York, Brick Lane to Tokyo, 42x12 gives a unique insight into whats going on at ground level.

From the Publisher:

The fixed-wheel, fixed-gear or simply `Fixie' bicycle has, for better or worse, become the focus of a sub culture all of its very own.
There are those who come to Fixies from the manly and serious world of road racing citing the bicycles' considerable capacity to strengthen the legs and improve `souplesse'. There are those who come simply because it's fantastic fun to learn the new awareness and co-ordination required to make Fixies fly. Then are those who come because it's really, really cool and the bikes are well, sweet. And finally there are those who come by mistake and leave shortly afterwards.
All of these pilgrims are rewarded. But above all the Fixie offers an amazing new perspective on riding a bicycle. A perspective that many claim to be a gateway to a mysterious `zone' wherein the body and cycle become one with the road, time compacts and the mind is for a few priceless moments chained to the moment in all its ragged glory.
In short, it is a moving meditation.

Through contemporary observation and the collaboration of those on the inside from Taiwan to New York, Brick Lane to Tokyo, 42x12 gives a unique insight into whats going on at ground level.
