Normally we ignore the hell out of lists and where Fresno is on them... alright, well, we don't ignore them, we just pretend to. But when we see one that has cities like Boise, Spokane, CHICO, Modesto, San Luis Obispo, Reno, Monterey, Sacramento and... (wait for it) BAKERSFIELD on it and NOT Fresno, we admit to paying attention.
This list comes from the Fixie Bike Index. From what we gather, it takes the amount of fixie bixes per capita and equates that to how "hipster" a city is. That's really about as acurate as anything could be when you think about it.
So how in the FUCK is Bakersfield, BOISE and Modesto more hipster than us?
Sure, maybe it's a good thing -- really we don't know. But you do think of a city being cooler if hipsters think it's cool (sadly). Plus, we have made nice strides in being a good biking city, you'd think there would be some stats to back that up -- or a spot on a bullshit list somewhere at least.
