Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

This is a really entertaining thread. I've chuckled quite a bit.

I got to see Charlie Haden with Quartet West in 1999 or 2000 or thereabouts. Definitely a hipster. RIP.

We're pretty much the same. I wouldn't call myself one, but my family is 100% convinced I am one. I do bike everywhere, but my main bike is a SS. Very rarely will anyone recognize the music I listen to (I did see the drummer of Negative FX while out shopping a few times and came to know him and have met people very randomly because of t shirts, but it's incredibly rare) I have a huge collection of vinyl and mostly listen to records. Not a meat eater either. My brother is convinced that my schooling and career (classical music) is also just hipsterism because he thinks only a hipster would do that.

But I don't dress any differently from anyone else who listens to what I listen to. I mainly wear band t shirts, plain jeans, or camo shorts outside of work (where jacket and tie are required) Nobody would suspect me of being one unless they came to know me.

I love my bike and eating healthy whole foods. But I can't stand thrift stores and cheap ****. Also hate records and old music. Definitely love rap and dubstep. I wear short shorts and get mistaken for being gay. I hate coffee and beer. I guess I'm a gay thug hipster.
Seriously, my wife says I'm hipster sometimes yet there are so many things "hipsters" do that I hate. Also, I'm in Germany right now and people say I just look European. Hmm. What is hipster these days?
I think hipster just means European. They all dress well and ride bikes.

I accidentally became a full blown hipster.

I grew a mustache a few years ago because I became a man and realized wicked sweet dudes have facial hair (avatar case and point).

I drank so much beer that the good stuff was a natural progression. Any stout is better than Bud Light.

I moved close enough to work to bike every day, so I got a bike where you couldn't stop pedaling because coasting is for girls.

F*** it.

Sick. I don't think that fact that I live in a part of West Philly that's a hipster paradise helps (but it was a cheap house).

I haven't heard of anything that you just wrote. Lol. Except pbr. You spelled it prb a couple times. That's pretty hipster just switching the letters around as you please.
I don't think I've ever had pbr before. Maybe once, either way I don't drink anymore so it doesn't matter.

It might have to do with the fact that ive been drinking. Or in general.

Sometimes when i type or text i switch around letters and ive found it happens more when i drink but still happens in normal situations like texting between my boss or gf as well.

Meh no excuses. Most likely the booze. Well then i cant explain why when i look at the kds screen at work when i ask about a number im calling out 301 and the exp guy goes do you mean 103.

LOl

I also dont drink before or during work.
