Oh it's that time of year again. The rain is starting to subside and the sun is slowly coming back from it's winter vacation. And with that, city wide all you twerps are dusting off your little color coordinated accessories from their winter hibernation, known as the "fixed-gear" Guess what kiddies, as you may know there are other seasons of the year here. Unlike you, the rest of us get on our bikes to commute, or for recreation with no regards to the state of the weather. We don our gear, we bundle up and we brave the elements on a daily basis. The cold, rain and snow have no affect on us. For we are cyclists. So when the sun comes out and I see you all coming out of the woodwork, I cant help but laugh. You are not cyclists. You are a fucking fashion statement. And you're not fooling anyone.
