{Winner! Best Short Documentary of 2011, San Francisco Frozen Film Festival}

{Official Selection and Honarable Mention Best Documentary, DocUtah International Film Festival}

Fixed gear cycling has become hugely popular in recent years. In cities and towns across the nation, young and old are riding "fixies" for transportation, work, sport, and just pure enjoyment. FIXATION captures the excitement and popularity of this growing sport from all perspectives.

While multiple speed bicycles are commonplace, the freedom and simplicity of a single speed bike brings the rider back to the basics - though because the gear is "fixed", or locked, riding a fixie is not without its challenges. The best riders don't use brakes and can do unimaginable moves and tricks.

With the resurgence of this original form of cycling, a vast range of riders - from professionals to casual commuters - have embraced this simple, efficient machine, and the lifestyle behind it. This award-winning documentary explores the full spectrum of the fixed gear community: Messengers, Olympic Racing, City Riders, Bike Polo, Brakeless, Freestyle and more. Discover the passion, freedom and excitement of riding with one gear!

This is a fun movie! I need to watch it again 'cause I viewed it on my laptop, but thoroughly enjoyed. I'm something of a geezer but I love everything fixie. I know there was a complaint about the sound on this video but it didn't bother me. I'll watch it again and again as I set up my rollers to do some indoor training. Highly recommend. Wish I had known about it sooner.

Fixation gave a really nice perspective on what riding fixed gear FEELS like. It covers every division of fixed gear riding from the track, to FGFS, to polo, to social rides and races. There's so much drama on the documentary; you get very wrapped up in it, whether you're learning about fixed gear cycling or watching people you know personally riding in the film.

I watched this documentary on Netflix. It follows the course of enthusiasm around this style of recreation and why it's important to those involved. The audio levels are so outrageously out of balance i spent as much time adjusting the volume as i did watching the action. You will be heavily distracted by how the doc instantly changes from a mumbling interview to loud music, and that the levels required to hear a lot of the interviewees themselves are imbalanced amongst themselves, which feels like a set up for a noise complaint. One second after the interviewee stops talking, you will need to immediately turn the volume down, a jagged up and down routine that may remind the viewer of biking through most cities and towns on the planet. Credited for this bipolar cycling nightmare is the mixer/sound editor Jon Greasley. I hope his prospective future clientele will take a few minutes to hear his portfolio to better understand what i'm writing about.

As avid cyclist, track racer, and former bike messenger myself, I normally get excited about bike films. The cinematography is very good. But this one seems to drag on in slow motion. It's an essay style film with no story line. It's very San Francisco-centric, which is annoying unless you're from San Franciscans, who seem to think that they live in the center of the universe. And the subjects don't seem to be doing anything interesting except riding their bike around. The original MASH SF film is much more exciting and thrilling to watch if you're into fixed gear riding.
