Metalupis: notmtwain: If it gets him to stop at red lights and pay attention while he is cycling, it might be the best $1,155 he ever spends.As someone who bikes for fun on the weekends, I agree with this soooooo much
kmmontandon: The NYPD should just confiscate all his flannel and force him to shave clean for a month.That'd wound him more than anything.
jake_lex: xynix: I live in the burbs.. Not many cyclists out here and of those that are they're the tight clothes logo wearing kind. A special kind of douche..I hate cyclists who just ride around town in those skin tight shorts. This isn't the farking Tour de France, asshole, I don't wanna see your package.
thismomentinblackhistory: Cars should be equipped with sensors that slow their speed ~50% when a bicycle is near.
special20: Cyclists should have to register their vehicle, pay insurance, be licensed, and pass inspections for safety once a year.
kevinatilusa: Good. Fine the heck out of cyclists when they break traffic laws. And fine the heck out of drivers who ignore the rules of the road around cyclists.
Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: To be fair, it is hard to stop at red lights while riding a brakeless track bike.
Snarky Acronym: A bicyclist hit and killed a pedestrian here on a trail, so yeah this guy could've easily clipped a pedestrian, knocked them over and caused a death or injury.
Gunny Highway: Erix: oukewldave: I don't know if he could look any more "hipster-y" than he does in the picture. Maybe some visible stickers on his bike?Really? Having the earbuds in makes him look a little douchey, but he's not wearing anything ironic, doesn't have skinny jeans, his head/facial hair is unkempt but not intentionally ridiculous.. I'm not really seeing it.Is flannel and a bike all it takes now?20-something = hipsterYou know who else wore red and black lumberjack (with a hat to match) and lived in Brooklyn?
JohnCarter: Bushwick artist Daniel Greer,on his bike ride home from his photography assistant gigWell I am confused, is he a flannel wearing cutting edge hipster artist OR an underemployed underappreciated photo assistant?
styckx: lordargent: $1555 = about one-tenth of his annual income?So is annual income is about $15,550 ... in new york?Aren't hipsters supposed to have money, you know, to buy all of that ironic hipster swag?You're speaking of the upper class `first world problems' type of hipster. This guy falls more into the scumbag hipster category..
Generation_D: As someone that has to dodge asshat cyclists while I walk around near my home downtown in Seattle, I applaud this action and look forward to the day in the future when we have similar enforcement here.
crotchgrabber: My buddy is holding a bike swap at his shop today. Wish I could go. Mrs Crotchgrabber is taking a bunch of our old used stuff down in hopes of getting different old used stuff.Felt S32 Tri is my roady. 1994 Klein Attitude Comp with upgraded and updated everything for the trails.fark fixies.
filter: Snarky Acronym: A bicyclist hit and killed a pedestrian here on a trail, so yeah this guy could've easily clipped a pedestrian, knocked them over and caused a death or injury.That is why real cyclists bike on the ROAD!
lordargent: $1555 = about one-tenth of his annual income?So is annual income is about $15,550 ... in new york?Aren't hipsters supposed to have money, you know, to buy all of that ironic hipster swag?
Stephen_Falken: People who ride bikes in heavy traffic are willfully ignoring modern reality of commuting. If they continue to try to force their viewpoints on the rest of society, they deserve to be outcast. Or run over. Or ticketed by the pigs. Especially the uniformed ones with their little prophylactic head bonnets. Or these urban hipsters with their fixies. Jesus f*cking christ.
orbister: FTFA: Bushwick artist Daniel Greer, 24, who admittedly went through three red lights while wearing headphones, said he did not at first realize he was being pulled over near Lorimer and Grand Sts. on his bike ride home from his photography assistant gig on Sept. 7.So which is he?
MrHappyRotter: I'm going to side with him, it's multiple instances of the same violation and the cops are double dipping. But I'm only siding with him because he doesn't look too hipsterish and he's got a really pretty mouth I'd like to stick my dick in.
