Official FIXATION Trailer from Alex Trudeau Viriato on Vimeo.

Fixation is a true life documentary focusing on the thrilling world of single speed cycling. Shot over the course of 12 weeks, Fixation captures, for the first time, the excitement and popularity of this growing sport from all perspectives. With the resurgence of single speed bikes we discover the appeal to having only one gear. Single speeds are the original form of bicycles but technology has come so far, providing multiple speeds for faster and easier riding, yet single speeds, fixed and freewheel continue to have a strong following. The range of riders is vast, from professionals to the casual everyday rider. Their styles and motives are different but the outcome still seems to be the same, the freedom, simplicity and the challenge of having one gear is what brings them back to the basics. We will explore the full spectrum of the lifestyle: Messengers, Olympic Racing, City Riders, Bike Polo, Brakeless, Freestyle and more. Discover the passion, freedom and excitement behind only having one gear.

Warehouses, Long Johns, and other ways to survive the recession [photos]

In an afternoon, I met a certain executive at a recession -proof blogging company, had the greatest taco of my life, then attended a dinner party with my sister where I met Matt Rubin [], a wine connoisseur, and long john fanatics. The next moment I found myself in a indoor commercial space wearing hannah anderson long johns. What I would like to bring to your attention is the nature of the the repurposed (but not rezoned) commercial turned residential space. It was a dreamy spot, and I took some pictures:
