  • Who is the most stereotypical STWer?

    Not sure how I’d score…

    Coffee snob, but that’s my business! Literally.
    Have a beard
    Ride a giant and a spesh…

    Being a snob is about looking down on people who like stuff you consider inferior. So thinking someone is a pleb or common for liking a particular thing or drinking instant coffee is being a snob.

    I don’t like instant coffee, but you all are welcome to drink it if you like, I won’t judge 🙂

    So I don’t like certain kinds of music and am happy to say what I think of them anybody who does makes me a snob?

    Saying what you think of someone doens’t make you a snob. Thinking they are inferior because of their cheaper tastes does.


    cheaper tastes

    but it’s not about the money. Or rather it is about the money if you are a snob. 🙄

    Premier Icon molgrips

    Cheaper perhaps not – inferior, worse, whatever you want to call it.

    It’s about a heirarchy of taste. If you think it’s intrinsically better to like one thing or another then it’s snobbery.


    I’m definitely a snob


    Is it possible to be too niche to be a STWer? Or is that the true definition?


    I don’t think I tick any of the boxes. Does that make completely niche and therefore the ultimate STWer?

    I drive a Civic.
    Commute to work on a SS road bike.
    Have a 6″ skills compensator and a rigid 29er SS.
    Work as a fabricator.
    I have made my own log burning stove.
    No pets.
    Often sporting stubble.
    Drink coffee from a jar.
    Live in Cumbria.
    Like a whisky.
    Partake in the odd ale now and again.
    I don’t start/fuel arguments on here!


    I reckon I’m probably even more niche than scotroutes..

    I used to live down south near the Surrey Hills – tick
    Don’t own a car now but have owned some VAG’s in the past – tick
    I only have one bike – cross
    I have never been to France or Italy mountain biking – cross
    I don’t work in IT – cross
    I don’t have a coffee machine (is that the same as a kettle?) – cross
    My apartment doesn’t have a chimney so no log burner or fireplace even – cross
    I don’t like cats – cross

    I only really come here to read the BS arguments, you don’t get that kind of quality BS in the pubs here and I miss it.

    Can’t believe this thread is back. Ignored it the first time around…

    I honestly don’t reckon there’s a STW stereotype. We like to think there is, as evidenced by the Wiki entry. But every time an emotive, heated thread gets going, it’s obvious that every strand of life and opinion is here.

    I’m just an ordinary bloke. I drink too much, walk a lot, cycle too little. I work in a creative business, my politics are slightly left-leaning, I have five bikes and a one year old child.

    On the whole, I suppose, I might be that stereotype except I drive a Volvo.


    I don’t think I tick any of the boxes.

    don’t drive
    no beard
    pretty far right (possible racist)
    drink black tea
    no fire at all
    turkey for package holiday
    total IT numpty
    only have a touring bike

    but I do like a real ale now and again.
