Surely anything cool is cool by being effortlessly cool – anyone/thing trying to be cool is inherently uncool.
Hence why I reckon so much niche stuff may inherently be cool but unfortunately the actual specific bikes are majorly uncool becaue of the tryhard nature of their owners. Just go to SSUK to see the truth of this.Posted 8 years agodexterbexleyMember
The Monks of Cool, whose tiny and exclusive monastery
is hidden in a really cool and laid-back valley in the lower
Ramtops, have a passing-out test for a novice. He is taken
into a room full of all types of clothing and asked: Yo¹, my
son, which of these is the most stylish thing to wear? And
the correct answer is: Hey, whatever I select.
¹ Cool, but not necessarily up to date.

Nicolai – Subzero, just because they're rare, very well made and a bit quirky like a Morgan
Spec' Pitch – Cool the Mondeo analogy is bang on, almost too good for the price and very good at making the big boys look twice.
Cannondales – uncool, they're gopping and since when has anything (bar the Pitch) American been cool?
Commencals – not cool, like to think they are but deep down they're not – just like Rangerover Sports (IMHO)
Orange 5 – see Mondeo analogy
Coves – very cool – stoopid names, have the balls to continue using them.
Made in shed steel bikes – IMHO uncool as just trying too hard to be cool, kinda like a Mitsi Evo XPosted 8 years agobackhanderMember

I don't think Miss Jenkins would be particularly impressed with a pushbike named "handjob".
Full sussers, fixies, singlespeeds and road bikes not cool.
Long forked steel hardtails and retro rigids; cool
Long forked Ti hardtails; sub zero. You can just tell when something is that expensive. Like a Maserati.
