Upon leaving the Third Thursdays party at the Chrome store at 1529 N Milwaukee in Wicker Park I spotted a bike with a funny attachment on the stem. After uploading the photo, I inspected it more closely and saw that four fixed gear bikes were locked to a single bike rack.

The fixie-hipster index for this bike rack (for this block, even) is nearing 1! Or 100%. Or 1:1.

But Chicago didn’t even place in the Top 25 Hipster Places in America.
