I have been patiently waiting to see the movie FIXATION when I saw a picture posted up on instagram by Scott Horton showing it available on netflix. Since I had just got done from a long bike ride with a friend we decided to watch it. I had only seen the trailer for it so I was not to sure what to expect. I know this film was a documentary so I assumed it was going to be a bit on the boring side but since it was something about what I love to do it was rather entertaining and informative. I really like how they showed the world of riding through different points of views not only from just different riders but from riders with different everyday lifestyles. I feel like Sean Martin’s part was an extension of his part in To Live and Ride in LA but I did strongly agree with what he said about his hopes in seeing everyone in the scene of fixed gear bikes working its way back in a direction of going fast again. I personally miss seeing the days of people going fast on track bikes and still doing tricks. Today with track bikes and fixed freestyle set ups having totally different geometries and components it makes for two totally different scenes of fixed gear culture in which I really love seeing people riding track bikes and doing tricks and bombing hills. Not only that but seeing riders hit speeds of 40 mph on a velodrome is absolutely insane and fun to watch. So in my opinion I would suggest to everyone to watch this video, especially if you love fixed gear bikes and its urban culture. It is really nice to see more cycling movies getting on Netflix so definitely take advantage of that when you can. If you would like to PURCHASE a copy of FIXATION check out their WEB STORE HERE.
