Well it happened

On Thursday I collected my new bike.
An R NINE T Racer.
I'd been pondering it for ages, and just decided that despite it being impractical and uncomfortable, I just had to have this bike in my life.
Today I did my first decent run on it.
I took a trip to the Hipster capital of Devon (Totnes).
It was like the bike was pulling me there.
I dropped into a trendy café by the river and had a Latte that cost more than a meal in a burger bar.
So it happened.
I'm now one of those guys.
Next I'll be growing a beard and wearing chequered lumberjack shirts.
Oh and mods - there isn't a fist bump smiley available.
Please address this as a matter of urgency.

Congrats and welcome!!

I go for the whole "dark and mysterious" thing, but usually settle for confusing.

I tried but this forum has some strange rule that dictates you can't post images till you have a certain number of posts.
So I don't qualify yet.

Congrats and welcome!

I try to inoculate myself against the hipster urges by wearing a full-face helmet, sidi racing boots,and leather sport jacket while riding mine.

I succumbed to hipster urges with mine, I had the beard before it was trendy and use a Bell open face when out on the 9T but revert to the sensible Neotec for the K16.

Please keep safety a priority and resist the temptation to drill your helmet for man-bun fitment.
