Hipster Bike

Because it's my blog and I'll write about what I want, but also because bicycles ARE vehicles and should be respected on the road more.
Anyway, I saw this single speed bike on campus recently, it has some sort of shiny silver paint and very wide handlebars.

The front fork also seems stretched forward significantly, I didn't have the opportunity to measure the trail but I guessed it as long.

I don't know if it's a true fixed-gear but I'm glad to see brakes at least on it.
The oddest feature though is the tires, with a diamond/scale pattern painted on them and what appears to be drawer lining glued to the contact area. I've never this before, and I hope it's not a new trend.
