    Got called a hipster today. Insultingly.

    I am fully aware of what this implies.

    My clothes don’t fit, my beard’s all wrong, I like coffee in little cups.

    Down with labels!

    And then you went online to tell the world – mission complete.

    I know, lolz.

    I wanted to instagramtumblrfacebookify it but i don’t know how, so i though i’d do this instead.

    And then you went online to tell the world – mission transformation complete.

    Fixed it.

    I went into my LBS asking about track wheels, for an actual velodrome bike. He asked me if it was for road or track. ROAD? Do I look like a wannabe London hipster ffs? I nearly punched him*

    * not really, he’s a nice bloke 🙂

    do you though molgrips!?

    do you though?

    It seems my failure to dress myself properly whilst on a caffeine binge and not bothering to shave for a month has put my in a box. A hipster box.

    Hope you’re typing this on a Mac.

    Well I am currently in London.. but my bike is firmly in the utilitarian category. Gears and panniers.. the only risk factor is a negative rise stem and an eclectic mix of components that just might be so random it’s cool…

    Hope you’re typing this on a Mac, while charging it and scrumping the interwebz from a coffee shop without buying anything in there.

    FTFY.

    Hope you’re typing this on a Mac, while charging it and scrumping the interwebz from a coffee shop without buying anything in there…and wearing £250 Japanese import selvedge skinny jeans, American Apparel zip-up hoody with the zip open, but the cord tied in a bow and limited edition New Balance trainers

    I think it’s good to go now.

    If there was ever a look I’d try to mimic it’d be steampunk. 😉

    Can we just stick “and looking miserable” on the end before we send it?

    By popular request.

    Yay! Prefecto. 🙂

    That description’s familiar!

    It’s the boy who stands at the entrance of Urban Outfitters saying “hey bro”.

    Sounds like “If I can’t see your ankles, you can’t come in”. Bro.

    Your posts do read a bit like you’re stoned OP.

    I suspect you were secretly flattered.

    is there anything wrong with being a hipster? (genuine question)

    You weren’t a hipster before not being a hipster was cool

    At risk of sounding like a grumpy old fart (I’m 34 you know…) can someone please explain why people have fixed gear bikes with track wheels on and walk around pushing said bike?

    Fashion ain’t my thing but I just don’t get it. Why? What’s the point of the bike if you’re walking?

    Please don’t, I’ve got one and now every man and his dog are buying them.

    I suppose you could say, I had one before they were cool.

    Simply douse yourself with cheap lager and achieve a very different result. It helps if you are also heavily drunk.

    I was accused of being a ‘fixie Hipster’ by a 5yr old !!!

    ed,

    yeah, yeah, yeah.

    I also wear specs and wear a cycling hat under my helmet. And have done since the 1980’s, and always will. If i’m hip’ster’ then cool.
    Someone once commented on the retro coolness of my mtb, i replied by saying it was very modern when i bought it.
    Cool or otherwise has no bearing on its function.

    Because they don’t know how to ride them. They’ve got as far as “fixie bikes are cool”, but didn’t read the next chapter that says “a bike’s no good if you can’t ride it”

    (from someone who rides a fixie to work… in full mtb gear)

    Chris, I am probably way too far out the loop to have a clue, and no offence like, but anyone that calls you a hipster needs a frikkin lobotomy if they’ve not already had one

    Think I would rather be called a hipster than ‘ middle management I.T. Type’

    As a general rule of thumb, if people on STW think something is ‘hipster’, it probably got abandoned by real hipsters a while ago.

    I think i’ll mark this down as worst OP ever.

    Very true. Nobody wants to be a courier with a fixie anymore, that’s so 2007 (2010 in the north/shires) now a Barista is the cool low paid job with tattoos and a ‘scene’
