    Hipsters going places

    This thing has no gears, but mostly I'm spreading this here from the General forum because of it's name, and cause I want to see what people here think of it....the comments on the website are fabulous too

    Amazing. I saw some dude pushing a cart (the handle was in front of him and the main body behind him) a ways north of SF on 1 when I drove down last month. I think this is a better design although I'm not sure.

    But yeah, dorky as ****. But who cares anyways.

    I guess it's sort of a fixed gear, kind of.

    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.

    If it came in colors to match my Segway I'd be all about it.

    Sam, I'd buy one if UTW made custom bags. As dorky as it looked it may have some function if you were pulling something a little heavier than a back pack bag (oh, yeah, rickshaws...)

    I think people should save their bile for such life enhancing contraptions as the douchaise, also available from the same website. http://www.elseware.to/products/douchaise.htm . (I may buy a muff pack for those lonely nights though).

    i love the snarky-ass comments about the inventor being some kind of dork (among other mean things) when they're the ones reading RealTechNews or whatever it is and commenting on it.

    i feel ambivalent about it. i think it would be a peculiar thing to buy (I'd go with a backpack) and it would make your midsection sweat like a motherfu_ker.

    I'm hungry.

    there was a hipster guy that would always be at the harrison st post office in sf with a handtruck. he was nice, but i don't think he understood that handtrucks were so last year. if its not attached at the hip its old news.
