    how nice can your bike be before you turn into one of those ******bags

    what makes your bike d-bagworthy? too much carbon? too many stickers? full campy or dura ace? full njs (for tricks?)??

    It's d-bag when it becomes a "fixie." Wads of shoddy, candy-anodized parts, brakeless, unwrapped handlebars, ridiculous saddle-to-bar drop, etc. If it's just a nice bike that someone showed restraint in building and took a little more time and thought with their aesthetics it's fine. I think a Campagnolo Record track group on a custom frame is going to look waaay better and be less jackass than Formula/B43s wheel, Origin8 cranks and a Pake frameset, despite the immense disparity in cost.
    The bums will always lose.

    my bike is a pile of **** and i'm still a filled-to-capacity ******bag.

    i think there's no limit, it just increases your ****** propensity, so it's more likely you'll turn.

    in my opinion the slippery slope comes when you start placing style before function.

    and then dooshbaggery is when you completely disregard function altogether.

    hipster-ism is when you walk your colormatched-to-your-dunks-bike everywhere, instead of riding it.

    jesus-christ-that-is-mentally-handicapped is when you do bmx tricks on a fixed-gear bike. (my personal opinion)

    I agree, which is why I carry a BMX folding bike in my messenger bag whenever I ride my fixie, in case I get a dozen miles in and decide I wanna do a wheelie or hop a curb or something.

    Doing either of those things on a fixie is stupid, so I bust out the BMX folder and everyone wins.


    Anyway, you turn into one of those ******bags when you start caring what other ******bags think. It's really as simple as that. The exact same bike owned by a different rider can produce an entirely different result, depending on why they own it.

    If it was not for the cost I would love to have a full carbon with campy everthing, oh and logo stickers everywhere. Why?
    Because I don't give a rats a$$ what people think of my bike and how I look on it. Honestly are you really that concerned about image

    This.

    But, obviously, everyone says that, including the ******bags.
    The difference is whether or not you mean it.

    Doesn't that pretty much include everyone on this forum. Apart from me because I don't care how much you dewsh-bags hate my bike!

    I was disappointed nobody put my bike in the jackass thread. I guess I am like a Sith lord and feed off your hate! Thanks Adrino, you filed me up when I posted about how my Spinergy's hadn't exploded.

    I ride a Roadmaster Mt Fury for my snow commuter to work and if that doesn’t test ones manhood or ******bags status I don’t know what would!

    my bikes own, your bikes suck. That's the short end of it.
