    coming from a small city I didn't quite get all the "hipster" .....

    ......**** giving so much.
    but after a week in NYC I get it a bit more, even more so than LA and SF.
    I saw a guy riding up Rivington st ,on the lower eastside of NYC, in super skinny jeans ,white,sleeveless shirt ,pink, white plastic aviator sunglasses, long mullety hair,........but the best part was the ankle dress boots with no toe clips or brakes

    "give a hipster a brake" if not a least some toe straps and clips. WOW!

    You and me both.

    I also love my spandex.

    And Wayne Newton. (Not ironically.)

    I wouldve thought it would take a lot more time in NYC to aquire a bad attitude.

    mostly it was the boots and the lack of toe clips and brakes.

    When I was out there over fourth of July, this seemed to be de rigueur for riding a fixed gear bike in New York. 'Not saying there aren't a lot of talented and strong riders, but it certainly seemed that the unskilled and unsafe novices outnumbered the responsible riders by orders of magnitude.

    i'd take great offense to this post, but i'm too fat to be a hipster...

    Although, in my experience, the only people who hate hipsters are hipsters themselves....

    I understand why the OP had a problem with the way the guy was riding. It is kinda dumb, but there's no reason to criticize his fashion. Who cares if the guy wants to dress like an idiot....

    it takes maturity to accept people as they are. you should be happy to see some variety. what's the alternative...hordes of people who all dress and act the same way? no thanks.
