    Are you probably a hipster?

    You may not want to admit it. But it's probably been said about you.

    I'm hip, and I ride a bicycle BUT my taste in clothes, and bikes exclude me.

    Only time will tell. Right now I'm hipster because I've been riding for only a few weeks. In exactly 383 days, if I'm still riding, I will no longer be hipster.

    there's way way waaaaaaayyy worse things out there to be than a hipster.

    are we really still complaining about this?

    also, buying a fixie no longer qualifies you as hip. its certainly not cycling-specific.

    I wasn't complaining. I just think it's funny. I've never really heard anyone call themselves a hipster. Mainly because if you call yourself a hipster, you're a poser. I'm just wondering how many people think they probably are. Which may or may not actually make them a hipster. Hipster logic is mind boggling.

    I got my first "fixie" twenty-two years ago. I'm hip because I'm hip... the fact that I ride bikes just makes me fit as well as hip.

    I havnt been on here in a minute. never really was. Seems hipsters are still a topic of conversation. Hipsters ride FG's. . . they will inevitably be on this forum. Why does it matter?

    No, I'm too old, too out of any fashion, and ride a San Jose with front AND rear brakes. My helmet cost more than most of the bikes in the SS/FG and my spandex collection is immense.

    i guess so. i wear ironic shirts sometimes, ride fixed gear bicycles, drink pbr, wear messenger bags, etc.

    stereotyping, i guess.

    What exactly is the pants tightness cut-off before they become hipster-esque?

    Being that pretty much all of my pants are Levis 514's...
    I think those would sit somewhere around hipster tightness.
    Thus, hipster I am.

    PBR has been considered the "working man's beer" since the 1840's or something like that. Why the fixies adopted that brand of beer I really have no idea, except for the messenger angle. Maybe Bud is for the NASCAR crowd.

    I'll have a glass of full-bodied Merlot wine with my fixie, thank you!

    i'm just gonna throw this out there: slim jeans feel and look way cooler that baggy ones. i'm not sure if the cut of my pants qualifies me as hip, but if it does then being hip is easy!
