    I Guess I'm Trendy Cattle ~ Moo!

    Here's a post on Chicago's Craigslist. It's kinda funny.

    http://chicago.craigslist.org/bik/77871870.html

    But I admit I'm trendy cattle. I have a few track bikes and yet I don't ride on the Velo or work as a messenger.

    If there's any other trendy cattle out there I'd like to know. I need some friends.

    I have always embraced my posing status with both arms. I am with you and fully support the plight of all of us trendy cattle out there.

    Yup

    I was called a Faux-messenger by my brother-in-law last night. So I hit him with my U-lock.

    Not really. I just like to ride bikes. Fixed gear bikes. I don't even have a U-lock.

    You know what I would say to the ass that wrote that...Who gives a ****. Sounds like some elitist BS which is funny when it's over a friggin' bike. It reminds me of roadies that ride around town w/ there $5,000 bike w/ nose turned up and petunia's in there ass while laughing at my entry level road bike. Apparently in Chicago if you ride any type of bike you will be judged as a poser.

    If I learned one thing in my years it's to not to take anything too seriously.

    I take money, my bills, family...the important stuff seriously.

    But bikes!? Messengers?! Bullsiht pissy scene stuff!?

    Jeez, it's summer. Let's have some fun!

    We are all trendy cattle while riding fixed is popular. Regardless if we rode fixed before the newfound popularity and will ride fixed after the bubble bursts. But for now I will moo with the best of them......MMOOOOOOO. Where the hell is my cud?
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    Moooo! Halifax, NS, has a herd of maybe five. I did, however, encourage my friend Brendan to build up a fixed gear last week. I lent him a wheel. He rode his new bike for 7 minutes and broke his arm. Sweet.

    I still haven't even seen another fixed wheel here, though I have heard rumors. Beef, it's what's for dinner! But yeah, I AM also a poser.

    When the urge to pose is overwhelming I get out the rusty mountain bike, put a plastic oscos bag on the cloud 9 seat, balance my strapless styrofoam helmet on my unkempt hair, blaze, strap on a rucksack paperboy style and hit the road like the apparent majority of non summer job messengers do around here.

    Obey your thirst!

    Speaking of which, I got some great Suntour wheels coming in today. Anyone.... Do I hear one dollar....

    Many years ago we had an older guy who insisted on riding his fixed gear bike with no brakes on club rides. The old fart was a danger to everyone around him.

    The brakeless thing isn't helping. We still have too many hipsters.
