fakenger
 n.— «For centuries people have done some pretty silly things in the name of fashion, and right now in portland there is a prevalant bikie / “fakenger” fashion. the fact of the matter is that most people around here who choose not to wear a helmet do it to look fashionable. every day i see the anti-fashionistas riding around on their faux fixies checking their style in the reflection of storefront windows.» —“Passing cyclist saves man’s life, makes plea for helmet use” by Mike Bene BikePortland.org Oct. 4, 2006.
