Q: How many hipsters does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

A: It's a pretty obscure number, you've probably never heard of it

So this is what they're called... I just assumed they were feminine men who liked bar bands, beer, tats and rough women who verify their femininity.

Hating on hipsters is the most hipster thing you can do.. Be careful it's a slippery slope.

My life practically revolves around cycling of all disciplines, and I hate the fixie trend. I spent a week downtown last month and the amount of fixies around was retarded. Riding a fixie in traffic is the dumbest thing you could do, a freewheel doesn't introduce much complexity to a bike and they're cheap, as are functioning brakes. I lost track of the near misses I saw between inexperienced riders and cars/pedestrians. Also seeing like $3000 fixies is kind of the opposite of what they're supposed to be (inexpensive), guys riding a fixies with carbon frames/forks/wheels/cranks are yuppies.

I agree that hipsters did ruin the fixie scene, but that doesn't mean there aren't anymore true fixie enthusiants. I like fixies and single speeds for their minimalism and how nice you can make them look (you can also make roadbikes look good). And yes, I do think it's retarded to ride a fixie without a front brake (or even worse a brake on a painted rim), having skid patches on the rear wheel requires replacement more often, which goes against the "low maintenance" mantra in the first place.

Personally, I don't race or track, and I found that a fixie has suited my biking need the most. I rode 10 speeds most of my life, and I currently have both a single speed with a free wheel and a fixie, and I still find myself taking the fixie out everyday.

My biggest pet peeve is cocks who buy beautiful 3-6 grand road bikes, keep them in the garage, and ride them twice a year with their stupid cosmonaut suits or even worse paint them flat black. Do you really need to wear unisuits to bike on occasion?

Anyway, my point is, you can't bash the bike, just the turd who's riding it. Hipsters have ruined fixies just like yuppies have ruined road bikes.

low maintenance cost on a fixie? really? I bought my 21 speed bike for 250$ from sportchek 11 years ago. The only thing I had to pay money to fix was when I had to buy a new gear shifter. THe old one broke because I was trying to do a jump, ****ed up and crashed.

Bikes dont get any lower maintenance if you have some brains.
