Just keep your distance and don't feed them, the're generaly harmless.
whats the problem?
That guy powder coating without a mask, that can't be good.
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.
Makes all the old steel bikes I wanna get more EXPENSIVE NOW!!!
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.
I guess I'm just feeling old
We weren't called hipsters in the 80's. We were just called "those freaking cyclists that's taking up the road"
Look at it this way...it makes the bikes you have more valuable
I think we got called alternateens.
I don't get the hipsters reference, but I liked the article.
"Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize"
"So I do not run like someone who doesn't run toward the finish line. I do not fight like a boxer who hits nothing but air."
"And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us."
"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith."
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.
If anyone needed a reminder...
I don't get where the OP was going with this either, but I enjoyed the article. Thanks!

Sycip builds some beautiful bikes.
Hey! I resemble that remark. My daughter still laughs at my soul patch.
Half of the time I fear I may not know what the hell Iím doing; the other half, Iím sure of it.
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.
What's a soul patch?
See the thing under Diz's lower lip?
Cyclists of the world, unite! You have nothing to lube but your chains!
Hahaha!! Trust fund check. Love it. You guys are master google image masters!!!
Didn't see any hipsters. Cool article though.
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?
