You didn't read closely enough Tom.

A "bent stomper" is the same thing as a "straight kicker" which is the same thing as a "fixie" which is the same the same thing as a "fixed wheel" in England which is the same thing as a "fixed gear" in the ex-colonies which is the same thing as a "fizzle gizzle" in the hood, Dawg.

The derivation of "bent stomper" you ask. A fixie "stomps a recumbent" in every way but length, weight, and oddness.
