Hipster Nascar on Traktion Mar 11, 2009


Holy shit. Go read this well-written essay / response by Simon over at Hipster Nascar regarding the Traktion video and Bike Snob’s ‘counter-point‘.

Bike Fight!!!!!

Simon, I gotta say. I just had the longest day ever and that post kept my attention! Good job man.


    Hell yeah, that shit was deep. Simon’s golden. Gotta love his philosophical input.

    That felt like an upper-level critical theory essay I read back in 2004, on my way to a bullshit Philosophy degree. Thomas Adorno, I think (correct me if I’m wrong).
    My favorite thing about the tracktion video was the bike shop “owner.” How burnt out was that guy?! He reminded me of me right before I quit being a mechanic. God bless the guy though, those HED tri-spokes are going to sell for a bundle.

  • Thanks, man. It was your original post that got me thinking, and then when I came over here to comment, I saw that the video had been deleted. Then I read your post about the BS post, and I didn’t want to get left out of the fight! Haha!
