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)

I doubt cyclocross ever gets huge in the hipster/trendy scene. The truth is that most hipsters will probably stop caring about bicycles after they sell their NJS frames and go back to accessorizing via clothes, shoes, sunglasses, etc. Track bikes are ideal trendster machines for several reasons, none of which are applicable to cyclocross bikes. The hipsters that do get into cyclocross (probably not many) are those that have actually fallen in love w. cycling through their exposure to track bikes and fixies. I hope that a lot of hipsters stay interested in cycling, but I bet that a lot of them do not.

everyone's gotta start somewhere in biking. track bikes aren't that bad of a place to start. i wouldn't say that everyone riding a fixie is not going to get into cycling. pretty much all of the "bike hipsters" in boston are at least interested in cyclocross. but yes, this video is hilarious.

Cyclocross is the perfect jump from track bikes.
It's still a small percentage in the cycling world, just like track bikes were.

Also it's just a damn fun sport.

yeah, i donno. maybe it's just austin. I don't think cx is that huge here, though I could be wrong. I don't see many cx bikes around. I think a lot of the kids who used to ride sick track bikes are now riding old steel road bikes (merckx, cinelli, colnago, etc)
