Why are bicycles seen as uncool?
>>
>>1988096
They're like model trains. Fine if you're into them but best to keep it to yourself
>>
>>1988096
Why are cars seen as uncool? Everybody I know hates cars.
>>
Why are things being uncool a bigger decision driver than things being personally enjoyable?
Why do people dislike questions being answered with questions?
>>
>>1988135
feeling cool is enjoyable
>>
>>1988136
And masturbation isn't cool, but people won't stop doing it.
>>
whoever you hang out with or what you view online makes you think they are uncool.
Me? I don't care.
>>1988136
go back to school
>>
>>1988096
I don't know. You tell me. I think bicycles are cool.

>>1988113
Because they're expensive polluting murder-machines.

>Because they're expensive polluting murder-machines.
Oh, so it's like smoking. That makes sense.
>>
>>1988096
because of all of the cyclists that wear skin tight clothes in order to be aero

It came as a devastating blow to me, when I first realized how low status bikes really are. I put all my eggs in the bike basket, hell, I learned how to bunny hop before I could walk.

When all my friends were putting posters of supercars on their bedroom walls, I had pictures of bikes and riders, all the legends of the sport, all the iconic machines. when my gran gave me money for driving lessons I bought a bike stand and some tools, when my dad asked me if I wanted a car after graduation, I didn't even respond, I just tapped the Specialized advert in the magazine I was reading, without looking up I could feel his disappointment.

The first time I pulled into the carpark of my job on my £3000 carbon fibre time trial special, one of the lads at the smoking hut called out 'Look, the cunts a cyclist!', and they all laughed, including the girls, nobody ever took me seriously after that, even when I switched the tyres out for GP 5000s.

Because most people are uncritical retards that don't question the status quo and will accept whatever propogandized slop gets fed to them.
They think it's cool to waste away so much of their time in a cramped box they're forced to rely on to get anywhere over being able to get exercise and have the feeling of the wind blowing in your face.
Years of concentrated efforts to shift opinions has left a generational disease in the brain of the public psyche of the American, leaving them thinking that any way of getting around besides a car is strange and to be ostracized, and the built design of the environment reinforces it by making any other method of transit either absent or intentionally obtuse and uncomfortable to the average retard.
And because their experience with alternatives is either initially negative or outright nonexistent, they have no perspective to question the presumptions they've developed about it.
>>
>>1988539
not to sound condescending to them but they dont know better, what do you expect?
>>
>>1988096
Auto lobby propaganda.
>>
>>1988096
Bikes themselves are not uncool. What's uncool is the fucking faggot riders blocking traffic because they cant fucking ride on the sidewalk like a civilized human bean.
>>
>>1988096
Simply because they're slow and make you sweaty and smelly. Noone thinks motorcycles are uncool and they're just faster bikes
>>
>>1988113
waste of money
>>
>>1988539
Anon is right
>And Jesus said: Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.
>>
>>1988839
it's illegal to ride on the footpath
>>
>>1989129
It's not in southern hyperborea (north europe)
>>
>>1989335
Losers
>>
>>1988539
Is this pasta? Kek, should be.
>>
>>1989128
only 90s kids will get this
>>
>>1988113
you are in am echochamber retard
>>
Because motorbikes are cooler and have an engine.
>>
>>1988113
Cars are cool. Skill issue
>>
>>1988096
I think theyre really cool, anon
Cyclists on the other hand...
>>
Because a mass of uncool people started basedfacing over them. It's completely valid to start disliking something when it gets popular.
>>
>>1988096
they are?
ive seriously never heard anyone say this
maybe about types of bikes but never the concept of bikes as a whole
this must be american suburbia thinking where bikes are almost exclusively for people too young to drive or lycra wearing boomers
>>
My co-workers think I have a gambling problem because I don't own a car. All the people I grew up with conflate recreational riding with being forced to ride a bike because you're a loser and can't afford a car.
