It got boring. I still love my track bike. And even though I’m not on the boards posting bike porn and giving kudos to all the latest fixed gear films, I still know what’s going on from word of mouth and reading Hern’s Tumblr. And I still know how shady some of those kids can be, I didn’t trust a lot of them and I still won’t. Especially those who come into my work and steal shit.
I know you prolly think it’s super punk to steal stuff, especially from a corporate company like Performance, but, reality check: it’s not. The cycling community is one big, somewhat happy family. Stealing from family is f-cked up, and bad juju.
So if you plan on getting that Scattante jersey with that hot five finger discount, don’t do it. I know who you are, I know who you hang out with. And I really don’t mind showing up to a ride, trick sesh, race, bike polo, etc and calling you out on it.
Fixed gear riders wonder why they don’t get respect from other cyclists. Well, this is why. Because you have idiots who are messing things up.
Keep your thieving hands to yourselves kids. THANKS!
