oh and the cat gif is funny too
High school I teach at is filling with fixed gears.
No big deal, it IS great to see them doing something other than video games and eating.
Just means the old heads need to hold the line on the 'right' way to do things: I won't go neon tarck but will ride what I have with pride and show them just how fun FG, SS, Road, and MTB can be. They appreciate me doing it my way and they can add their own 'style'.
in theory, yes. but in practice, no
I am the only one that rides a single speed or fixie where I live.
So It Goes.....
89 Modernized Peugeot Triathalon
79 Peugeot U-08 single speed
8? Sekai Grand Tour 2500 single
Chicago was full of tarck bikes, but Shreveport, LA is always a little behind the times. When something is in style in California, people here will take about 3 years to get on board. Remember those Affliction/Tap Out shirts that everyone but the purest bros stopped wearing a couple years ago? Yeah, they're just now hitting their peak here. So I imagine it'll be a while before anyone here is riding fixed gears. Also, bikes aren't cool here. This is:
1980ish Free Spirit Sunbird fixed * 1996 Mongoose IBOC Zero-G * 1997 KHS Comp * 1999 Diamondback Interval * Olde Western Auto Cruiser.
If you think its bad now, wait till that new messenger movie comes out.
Eventually, kids will realize what we're doing is pretty dumb, and will eventually move on to the next "in" thing.
Good. I'm glad theyre popular with kids. This is a good thing.
When I was in jr high, riding a bike was very uncool.
I think Ultraspontane is right though. More people on bikes means every driver in every city will get used to seeing us, driving with us, and not running us over.
That mud truck is badass. For real.
atleast that thing actually gets mobbed off road
unlike most excessively lifted/modded trucks in teh "bro" scene
Your beauty is an aeroplane;
so high, that my heart cannot bear the strain.
i still dont understand whats wrong with something becoming more popular? you havent explained that.
