Yesterday r/FixedGearBicycle was going bonkers over this photo montage that was posted to the State Bicycle Company facebook page. Although “hipster bashing” is very 2005 I have to agree it really does trot out the “hipster lifestyle” tropes…retro fancy bag filled with PBRs, the Holga cam, and footwear inappropriate for a woodsy trail but right at home at the party after the afterparty.
I actually just learned of the State Bicycle Company. Their rides look pretty rad to me. They were getting some hater love on r/fixedgear, but I think they were really getting slagged on because they have successfully packaged a product that what some people don’t want to be packagable.
