    CRITICAL CLASS - SF Chronicle

    http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/articl...sn=001&sc=1000

    Any bay area people have any thoughts on this?

    I know **** like this is discussed all the time in this forum, and I really refrain from posting, but I wouldn't mind peoples opinions on the article.

    Just another "I'm a real _____, go away you poseur ______." article.

    I don't really get the fakeanger thing, you have to be a messenger if you like having a bag strapped to your back and a ride a "track" bike on the street? I guess if you're not a messenger, you have to have a road bike, a hybrid bike, mountain bike, or some other sort of non-track bike and panniers?

    Sounds like miss dreadlocks is too full of herself.

    I'm in agreement with this statement.

    Are we being warned that the fashion police are after non-messengers?

    Hinds admits that when it comes to bags, for her at least, fashion has trumped functionality.

    "I don't like having stuff everybody else has, but I finally break down and get it," she says, nodding to her Freight bag. "I actually prefer a backpack to a side sling, because of better weight distribution, but ..."
    What a tool. She gripes about hipsters not being on their bikes 8 hours a day, but she'll make herself uncomfortable by getting a style of bag that isn't her first choice.
    The extra digit is crucial to my success.

    i just hope the hipsters keep riding bikes for longer than they wore their campers. if it's anything like yupis and their fashion dogs, we'll need an spca for fixed gears when the trend passes.

    Well read the article and watched the slide show and I have to say that she has only been working 10 months and she's jaded hmm I wonder does it make the kids in sacto look any worse that we don't care as long as you can keep up with us hmm


    here are two old school messengers here in town both in their 50s that would smoke her any day of the week

    and as far as stylish goes gees those bike were purdier than anyone of mine or all of em put together

    They should have shot indoors. Unless you do some Photoshop correction, the blue-grey skies of San Franscisco will give you that overexposed, flat, washed-out look.

    Sometimes those super big mess bags can be a little overkill. But you can't go wrong with a Flippin Hades or R.E.Load joint if you just have to carry a haul on a bike with no braze on's. But it defeats the purpose for me to ride an 18 pound race bike with 40 lbs. of miscellany strapped to one sholder.

    I like to ride light unless I'm shopping, then I take a bike with a rear rack. Tha's part of the allure of cycling for me, the feeling of cutting through the air unencumbered. Like a bird.
