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)

the only thing tighter than your pants are the grips on your risers.

you have to make fun of what you perceive a hipster when in fact you may be a hipster yourself according to another.

Yay! It's an endless cycle! [sarcasm]

You live and breathe irony to a point where you make fun of hipsters in a thread on bike forums.

I hope this is all self-depreciating commentary, cause I imagine a good number of us could make the h-word qualification to some degree.

You know you're a hipster when you check this thread to make sure you know what people consider to be hipster, so you can purposefully not do anything specified in this thread. When deep down inside you love the hipster 'culture' if you should dare call it that. You know you are a hipster, but will deny it to the grave.
