Human-Powered Transport

A human powered vehicle uses human power to propel the vehicle into motion. They can be propelled by the person in the vehicle, or by the person outside and not supported by the vehicle. Rolling contact, sliding contact, intermittent contact, no contact, or a combination of the four is used to support the weight of a human powered vehicle. The bicycle is the most common, and other wheeled versions include inline skates, strollers, rickshaws, skateboards, and wheelchairs.  Vehicles with sliding contact are skis, snowboards, and sleds, and those with intermittent contact include stilts and pogo sticks. A gurney or stretcher is a vehicle that requires no contact. Drivetrain, lateral motion, or direct contact with the ground, are the three types of propulsion that drive the vehicle.

Size comparison drawing of the Fixed-Gear Bicycle (Fixie) compared to an average person

A fixed gear bicycle, or a fixie, is a bike with its cog tied directly to its back wheel with its chain. The fixed gear bicycle cannot change gears, which can make it more difficult to ride uphill. The back wheel cannot move independently of the pedals. So, when going downhill, the pedals will continue to spin, requiring the rider to be careful to not take a pedal to the shin or lose control.

Fixed-Gear Bicycles have a total length between 66”-67.375” (167.6-171.1 cm), width of 20” (50.8 cm), and height in the range of 38”-41.5” (96.5-105.4 cm). Fixed-Gear Bicycles weigh roughly 26 lb (11.8 kg).
