  • (manufacture) put together out of artificial or natural components or parts; "the company fabricates plastic chairs"; "They manufacture small toys"; He manufactured a popular cereal"
    fixed gear
  • A direct drive system, used on track bikes, in which the chain ring and rear cog are linked, so that the pedals turn constantly while the bicycle is moving, and coasting isn't possible.
  • a cog attached to a hub without a freewheel; it always turns with the wheel---no coasting
  • A fixed-gear bicycle (or fixed-wheel bicycle, commonly known in the USA as a fixie) is a bicycle that has no freewheel, meaning it cannot coast — the pedals are always in motion when the bicycle is moving.
  • bicycle: ride a bicycle
  • motorcycle: a motor vehicle with two wheels and a strong frame
  • bicycle: a wheeled vehicle that has two wheels and is moved by foot pedals
  • A bicycle or motorcycle
fixed gear bike manufacturers - Camouflage Uniforms
Camouflage Uniforms of the German Wehmacht Manufacturers
Camouflage Uniforms of the German Wehmacht Manufacturers
An indispensable guide for historians, collectors and military modelers, this book finally resolves the confusion surrounding many of the many World War II Wehrmacht (both Army and Luftwaffe) patterns and garments and establishes a complete and concise system of identification and terminology. A comparative section with post-war fabrications is added as a tool for authentication. More than ten different camouflage patterns are covered, including the super rare carbon overprint and Leibermuster. Authentic zeltbahns, helmet covers, caps, smocks, winter clothing, anti-gas outfits, body aprons, tents and more are shown in over 580 full color, and contemporary black and white photographs (most published here for the first time).

[A200/Tamron 18-250 Promaster MCUV filter, ISO100 1/400 F11 42mm effective, -0.3eV, dcraw H0W ICC > Gimp with rotate & crop, keystone & wide-angle correction, brightness & contrast adjust, usm, wb-temp reduction] ..."phew, that was a bit of work" :) and I didn't even do CA or blur-correction on this, because I can't do either "by hand". Anyway, I'm somewhat glad that I only took a few dozen shots here this weekend. Gives me a chance to look at this question from a different perspective, along with some shots of the same scenes to work with from two significantly-different cameras. Very important to keep the camera level and "straight-on" on scenes like this unless you like to do a lot of manual corrections. The main thing is that there is so much to "see" and quite a bit of ground to cover but it's still hard to pick good "shots" out of all this, shots that are interesting, attractive, "enthralling". Not too tight, not too loose, with some organization but not monotonous. An interesting challenge. And then dealing with a slow, noisy camera with a warp-inducing lens on top of that, extra "fun" :) Seriously the A200/Tamron 18-250 combo is not bad to work with if you know how to fix-up the results. It's clearly clean enough at ISO100-200 where noise is rarely if ever an issue even with strong USM, when shot at something less than about 150mm effective at F7.1 or higher the vignetting, blur & CA are not noticeable problems, and the color is better than I got out of my Canons, with better AF. Not a "10" but definitely better than a "7". A good day/early-sunset rig. Honestly at this point I know that it's not an excellent rig but it's quite easy to work with the images off it as long as they are reasonably-shot and it gives me most everything that I need. Though the A200 noticeably does not have LiveView, which I am noticing more lately as I am trying to keep the camera level to minimize keystoning, and that often means shooting around waist-level. This shot was a pretty-good example of what happens when the camera can't be shot level and the scene has a lot of straight lines, the distortion of the boathouse was mindboggling. The masts still aren't straight. I would run this through ShiftN but I think this is about as good as it can do with this scene. ...I don't mind if the output isn't perfect, even if it's kind of "bad", as long as it's straightforward to fix to a point where it looks good even if it isn't technically "great". Struggling for hours to get something that still sucks just ain't on my list of enjoyable things to do. So, in terms of selecting gear, one should probably focus on what is not there that can't be added more than what is there that is difficult to remove. You will add effort to match value and eventually fix what you can fix, but you cannot add what is not possible for you to put in. The camera is supposed to capture both color and fine-detail, not just one or the other. As much as I like the colors out of the D300, the lack of fine-detail is what would keep me from buying another one*. The 5D is the opposite: great fine-detail (and certainly low noise relative to the A200) but the color sucks most of the time. For good shots we need both good color and good fine-detail. The camera cannot just be clean and have high resolution and meet these needs. Not even close. It is rare that you will need the full resolution of an 18MP camera, and if you do, certainly a 24MP camera looms large. You will just-about always want good color and good fine-detail though certainly some compromise can occasionally be made on the latter in exchange for lower noise and it is easier to make that compromise given more fine-detail. But the main thing is that color-responsiveness is not a function of pitch or sensor-size as much as it is a characteristic of the manufacturer. You want 18MP and 5FPS and a 1/250s flash sync speed? Done. Give me good performance in the RGB filter combined with good linear-resolution, color-resolution & SNR at industry-standard ISOs? That might be a problem. And that is what you find out when you look deeper than just the superficial characteristics like MP, frame-rates, buffer-sizes, sensor-sizes and A/D bit-depths. You find out that despite "excellent" numbers in those areas, the images can still suck because IQ depends on a completely-different set of factors. *...unless I find myself wealthy-enough to indulge my fantasy of buying whatever camera & lens piques my interest. Or I buy another D300 simply because it has great AF and color combined with decent performance under lights at high ISO. But really I can't see going that route for half the price of a D700 which is better in almost every way...unless I bought them both just for an "extended comparison" ;) Hey if Jay Leno can collect more cars than he can even ho
Fiorelli Coppi Pista set
Fiorelli Coppi Pista set
A pre-modern day COPPI branded bike(which have nothing to do with this vintage other than branding). This was built in the day when Fiorelli was making excellent race bicycles. Excerpt from Daily Peloton, FAUSTO COPPI - THE LEGEND: PART 3 "...Fausto turned a pro in the late 30s with the Legnano team, as a (not so loyal) domestique of future archrival Bartali, well-known winner of the 1936 and 1937 Giros. It didn’t take long for the future “Campionissimo” to show off all of his skills and be appointed team leader, but nonetheless in 1941 he moved to Bianchi, the squad he will be riding for until 1956. Then, at the age of 37, the man set up a team of his own, the Carpano-Coppi squad, sponsored by a famous beverage firm, and riding bikes bearing Fausto Coppi’s name, produced by Novi Ligure-based Fratelli Fiorelli (Fiorelli Brothers: namely Rinaldo, Mario and Lino) firm. The piedmontese town of Novi Ligure was a kind of “cycling capital” in that period. Besides a good number of excellent riders, wishing to follow the example of Coppi (and before him another character from Novi, Costante Girardengo, a star of the 20s and 30s whose accomplishments were a source of inspiration to Fausto himself), there was also several bike producing firms, often managed by single families. Along with the Fiorelli brothers, we can mention the Santamarias (Giuseppe e Mario), who kept producing the ”Biciclette Bartali” in 1948, after “Gino il Pio” stopped riding Legnanos and promoted bikes bearing his own name. Along with Gino, also the likes of Corrieri e Kubler raced with the Santamaria-Bartali outfit. Before Coppi & Bartali, even Costante Girardengo, after he pulled out from cycling, had started funding the production of his own bike firm. And quite paradoxically, it was Girardengo’s firm to build many of the bikes the greatest sprinter ever (perhaps along with Mario Cipollini), Belgium’s Rik Van Steenbergen, rode to defeat Fausto Coppi many a time. But glory and success come and go in every field, business included, and nowadays as much as Piedmont hasn’t got any real star in the pro peloton, whereas the current big names of Italian scene are mostly from Tuscany, Veneto and part of Lombardia, also its bike-producing tradition has got lost. Both the Girardengo (just a few days ago) and Santamaria firms went bankrupt. As for Fiorelli, the firm was completely taken over in the early 90s by the Fratelli Masciaghi manufacturers, whose main goal was to own the Fausto Coppi’s trademark. So the Fausto Coppi bikes are still produced by the Masciaghi firm, although no longer in Novi Ligure, but in the Brianza area of Lombardia."
