    Can't help with your question. I was a coffee snob long before I started riding seriously or got a FG bike.

    Personally, I would like to see what the correlation is with FG riders and 70% (and higher) chocolate.

    I eat 85% + Peanut Butter

    That's my healthy-ish snack when I get sugar cravings.

    Correlation does not equal causation.

    As Minchin said, praying before a sporting event and winning does not mean that god took time out from torturing and killing babies in Africa to ensure your team's win.

    I also like to enjoy coffee when I am walking, driving, or riding a non fixed gear bicycle.

    I prefer dark chocolate for it's richer flavour and higher kick and it does seem that many of the cyclists I know and associate with also prefer dark chocolate, especially when it is organic and fair trade.

    I was diagnosed as "hyperactive" at age 3 and my parents began feeding me coffee three times a day, and at 4 years old they bought me my first bike. I just figured they went together....


    BTW: Chocolate is best experienced at body temperature, so let it melt and savor it, don't just bite off a piece and swallow it.
    Just your average 'high-functioning' lunatic, capable of passing as 'normal' for short periods of time.....

    Yeah, they are pretty much hipsters. I actually walked into a local coffee shop today and most of the people in there were hipsters.

    Just watching a bunch of different videos regarding bikes and seeing coffee shops references in it somewhere like a cheap plug in a movie made me wonder the connection.

    Mission Workshop shares a building with Bicycle Coffee Co. Probably explains a bit of it.

    Otherwise, the coffee shop is a symbol of urban living.

    You could start this trolling thread in the 41, too. Lots of coffee drinkers there.

    Because hipsters love expensive lattes and hipsters love fixies. Those hipster coffee shops are ****in ********. Bunch of weirdos sitting down with their macbooks and rarely does anyone socialize with each other.

    Everyone knows that coffee is a universal solvent. FG riders are anal about keeping their chains clean. Therefore, it's good to have coffee around to clean your chain at a moment's notice.



    Personally, this is a more common sight for me:
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    Where I go to school, the people at the smaller, local coffee shops are a lot cooler than the ******** who work in the chain shops. Its that simple for me and a lot of places like that in general.

    In most urban areas, the local shop is also just more accessible than the chain.

    In Italy, even the rest stops on the Autostrada have better coffee than Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts. Unfortunately, it's not really possible to ride a bike to one.

    If you need to draw a connection, it's probably just liking things that are cool. Or at least things that are not the mainstream. Generally speaking, you local coffee place is going to have better/fancier coffee than Dunkin Donuts. That's just true. And these same people with slightly more sophisticated tastes also enjoy other things that are just enough off the beaten path to be considered cool. Biking would fit that profile.

    Or ****in' hipsters. You pick.

    In my area, the roadies are the ones filling the coffee shops on the weekend rides.

    In my area, the only ssfg I see are dummies walking their bikes down the sidewalk and the brakeless retentionless fools.

    Also, I've been drinking coffee/espresso before I bought a road bike, let alone a fixed gear. Maybe I'm just a hipster or I drink coffee like most people.
