    So my sis is in SF right now..

    My sis and I are twins and she absorbs a lot of my bike talk just bc I'm such a nerd ab it.

    Anyway, she has started to recognize what fixed gears are since I have 4 of them. She's in SF this weekend and she sent me this pic with the caption "first sighting":




    guhhh. She needs more schooling.

    My non-cycling friends do the same. They point out bikes to me when we're out. They actually tend to have nice taste. They don't normally like the overly colourful jackass tarck bikes.

    black and white? yes...
    black and white and gold? sure why not...
    black and white and gold and NEON green? with rasta stripes?? is ugly like, ironic or something, and therefor hipster + points?

    "hey man check out my bike"
    "dude those colors are horrible"
    "i know man, i did it on purpose, isn't it IRONIC?"
    "dude im so high right now"

    IRO frame, check.
    Top tube protector, check.
    Riser bars, check.
    BMX grips, check.
    Deep V, check.
    Aerospoke, check.
    Anodized crankset, check.

    Well, citizen, looks like you've hit all the requirements. I'm pleased to issue your Hipster Card. Don't forget to show it at 7-11: it's good for a 10% discount on Natty Ice and Parliaments.

    Maybe you're right. I might be confused. I can't remember which is the Homeless beer and butts and which is the Hipsters'.
