I haven't seen the hipster fixie trend cool off at all. And it's a trend I don't mind at all, either. I know hipster is often used derogatorily, but I don't mean to use it that way. If you are in your late 20's or your 30's and dress moderately fashionably, it's hard not to be labeled as a hipster. Fixed gear bikes are appealing and practical for many people, especially in urban areas where there aren't many hills.
