1. The Eternal Question

How many points of engagement would you say a standard fixed cog has? One? Infinite? Something else? What about for a bolt-on cog, like a TomiCog? Six points of engagement?

2. Uhhhh... = 1/0

Fixed is never disengaged, so the question does not apply.

Sparty's answer is right, but if you want to push...the drive is engaged at every point ( and all the points between those points) so "infinate"POE or "B" on the multiple choice test.

Where the question breaks down is that nobody is realy hung up about POE while riding, it's minimizing degrees of crank rotation between engagement points that really matters . On the fixie the only play you might get at the cranks is from a loose chain.

8. For the fixed equivalent of a coasting bike the POE is based on the chain tension. It could be calculated based on how far many degrees the cranks rotate from tensioned backpedal to tensioned forward and the gear ratio. You could simplify the calculation be measuring the wheel's degrees of movements between the two tensioned states.

9. Someone once said, "there's no such thing as a stupid question."

That person was an idiot.

10. Sooo.....

11. it all depends if your tires are hooking up or not. :P

Who do they have to hook up with for this to happen?

14. Sizzlers mom would be a good start. YMMV!

15. What about umarth's mom, is that the next step up? Does umarth even have a mom?

16. I dunno... Though i did hear he has no belly button.

That's it? I'd expect her to be more inventive than that!

I think it's more like lim(1/x) as x -> 0. Technically...
