    Meh, most of it was the same old jokes. However;

    "How did we end up in the actual woods?"

    "I don't know, I'm over it. It's pretty lame"

    was pretty damn funny

    Exactly!

    Fixed gear bikes used to be out-of-the-mainstream which made them "in." They became so popular that the major manufacturers started producing fixed gear bikes, putting them into the mainstream, which made them "out." So now, since fixed gear bikes are "out" again, they are actually "in."

    Unless, of course, your fixed gear bike is a road bike conversion. In that case it started life as "in" until it was converted to fixed gear which was never "in," even among the other fixed gear riders, so it was always "out" which is actually "in."

    Got that?

    This has got to be my favorite post ... ever.

    I've been wrestling with this conflict for around 13 years now....except when I first started having issues with this, it was the punks instead of the hipsters. Good grief. Who cares, right!?

    so, if you're in, you're in. if you're out, you're in.

    man, this is easy!

    I wear tight pants, watch art films and listen to underground music, and drink cheap beer but I also have stupid looking mountain shoes for my SPD pedals, use fenders, and care about things. I would ask but I guess I'm probably a hipster.

    nobody is a hipster. if you live on a trust fund / daddy's money and have a super trendy bike messenger job then you can get **** for being a hipster in my opinion. otherwise, you're fine. that's where i draw the line at least.

    really? that's pretty shallow reasoning for classifying someone as being as shallow as a hipster. having money or not doesn't make a damn bit of difference as to whether someone is a hipster. Placing style and fashion over substance is what counts on that one, and I've known just as many non-parent subsidized kids that are guilty of this as not. You front Portland in your handle, maybe that makes you a hipster? Sounds about as plausible as the rationale you've given there...

    I go to art school
    I wear tight pants
    I appreciate underground indy
    I have strange taste in clothes
    I wear thick framed glasses
    I ride a fixed gear conversion with lime green veeps and matchy match seat and handlebars because it looks cool.

    I'm the worst of both worlds.

    I dress like a hipster. I don't shower often. My bike isn't all "Tarked out". I'm glad people are making videos about us on youtube. The movement gains more notoriety.
