Craigslist missed connections and guys with bikes…
It seems you hardly even saw the dude, so transfixed as you were by his yellow fixie. Honestly, is this the new chick magnet? Has the red sports car of the 80′s been replaced with the fixed wheel bike?
That might explain some of the anti-cycling hate in Facebook and elsewhere: They’re jealous. Back in the caveman days we competed for mates by hooting like chimps and bludgeoning each other with sticks. Through the modern age, economic status (or the appearance of it) seemed to work well. Joe Winebox believed the advertising that his shiny car from Smythe European (that’s the name of a real Bay Area car dealership, no kidding!) would attract the perfect trophy wife, but when his tactic doesn’t work, Joe might be tempted to revert to ape-like yammering squawks, threats and bludgeoning.
I probably read too much into it, so just have some fun with this.
