I'm not getting the problem here. If a guy toiling building frames is getting recognition, that's awesome. If the Arcade Fire kids like bikes, great...just don't drew them.

Hmmm. . . Hipsters riding geared bikes - and soon horizontal top-tubes. - Soon they'll be US!

I fail to see the issue...

I thought this thread was going to be about hipsters cutting off derailleur tabs or something. Instead, you're worried about a guy fulfilling his passion?

No, really, I'm happy more people are riding. Even myself, at a young tender age, wanted to learn frame building back in the 80's. This is cool stuff but more sad that steel bikes are getting more expensive. Oh wait, then my stuff will be worth more! Sweet.

We weren't called hipsters in the 80's. We were just called "those freaking cyclists that's taking up the road"

Off-topic, but for anyone in the area that ride through Occidental is amazing. What a cool ride and a cool town. The only time I've done it, however, was on a Harley Electraglide that I rented. I think I should re-do that ride on a bike.

Just being a cyclist isn't what makes you a hipster.

You guys are too touchy. I think there's too much snow in the country and most everyone is getting cabin fever. Relax guys, just a cool article on frame building. I threw the hipster part in there cause they look like hipsters. But they are making old bikes more expensive. Even my friends at work are asking me to get them an old frame and make a SS. Its all good. Get out and work out! Sweet.

They expressed their feelings with relatively civilized comments. People were pretty mellow in SoCal back then, which is very cool. In New York it was, as Axl Rose would put it, "welcome to the jungle, baby". The tire tracks across our backs weren't necessarily T-shirt graphics back in those days.

This is such a complete non-issue, I have no idea where the hipster thing even enters the picture.

Looks like a fight searching for a ring?
