How about:

"Fixed gear": non-freewheeling drive, but by changing chainwheels and rear cogs or internal shifting Sturmey-Archer ASC or other modified hub the ratio can be changed. Examples are track bicycles and fixed gear road bicycles.

"Fixed wheel": non-freewheeling drive where ratio can not be changed, such as highwheel bicycles and kid's tricycles.

"bent stomper" someone who really, really dislikes recumbent bicycles...

>"Pignon fixe": Fixed bird that takes dump on straight kicker as she's riding.
