The Globe is Spinning...

Saw this on the 'Beast' a few days back. Had to post it...

Aging your sneakers with sandpaper is insane, I dont believe people actually stoop that low.

In the defence of those of you who got a 'fixie' for Christmas. I've dabbled in this two wheeled frenzy that seems to be sweeping the globe and I can confirm its an addictive subculture that once your in you cant get out.

I only just got a skateboard to carry around with me now I find out being a skater is not cool anymore.

It's all about the bike messenger look.

Damnit to hell

-Goes looking for a fixed gear-

buying a shit bike doesnt make you part of any subculture

and fix gear is certainly not a subculter!
Its mainstream verging on high street fashion.

your both deeeerrkheads. how can you say something so stupid. its like saying "skateboard is not a subculture" of course it isnt its fucking object (and your sentence doesn't make sense) you prize prick.

just because a couple of streetwear labels are trying to jump onto the bandwagon and make _____X______ collabs with bike companies, doesn't mean you can just disregard the whole culture and say its some bigotry bullshit.

cycling, particularly fixed gear cycling is a subculture as it differentiates from the mainstream and if people want to jump onto the bandwagon, then fine, one less driver. if your going to try rinse people who chose to ride with 1 gear instead of 21 and choose to have it fixed rather than freewheeled your pretty lame.

well i doubt people are buying these bikes because they are 'fixed gear' or whatever its because apparently they are cool to ride now

it would be exactly the same if it was somehow cool to ride unicycles every fucker would be doing it.

why are you so fucking cynical?
maybe people realise that it makes sense to ride a fixed gear bike for the commute or whatever else they want it for. if fixed gear bikes were cock flavoured lollipops that were cool to lick, that would be a different story but there are genuine reasons why people ride them.
yes it is 'cool' to have a fixed geared bike but its just a bike, its not a crime. in 6 months it wont be cool any more but most of the people who ride them now will still be riding.

Two Questions

Where can I get one of these cock flavoured lollypops you're talking about?

Do they come in different colours?
