Maybe the hipsters will start roller skating again now that Urban’s selling fixies. Or ride Segways. Whichever’s least cool to “consumers”

I wonder if Republic is getting their fair share. UO is notorious for soliciting work from designers & artists, then copying their design & fabricating overseas for cheap.
Will this lead to “Mocking Fixies Over?” I hope so.
They’re not fixies unless they don’t have breaks. That’s where the ubercool hipster vibe comes from: danger. Duh.
Per the UO specs: “Brakes: C-Star alloy dual pivot calipers with cam action cable tension release, alloy lever, plastic base.”
For pussies, obvi. Gossssssh!
The blog so nice they named it twice. (And to be clear, it's mostly about the Mission.)
