n.— «I started noticing them; hipster punks riding around on old road bikes with a fixed gear and (yuck) a brake or two. Most of them wore distasteful, mess bag like devices that are sold at the Gap and a shiny new kryptonite chain around their waists’.…Many couriers have funny names for these characters like culture-vulture, poser, dick-jocker, tourist hipster scum and fakenger. They don’t have real track bikes, but converted road “wack bikes.” ”its fashion, not function”, says Alex, who opened Bicycle Doctor (133 Grand street,), a Brooklyn bike shop catering to just about everybody that sells a lot of track bikes. “In the last year I have sold more track bikes than in the four previous years combined.” Being in Williamsburg a huge percentage of these bikes must be being sold to poser, hipster douche bag fakenger scum.» —“The Track Bike” by The Joker Courier Dispatch (New York City) Apr. 14, 2005.
