The first question you probably are asking yourself is-“What is a Hipster?” Some people would say that they’re particularly easy to spot around town. They seem to have a love for big beards (not to be confused with Movember), well-fitted jeans, and heavy eye-glass frames. Many hipsters also seem to have a love for well-crafted bikes. Ultimately, you’ll know a hipster when you see one.  Fortunately, hipsters are a particularly easy bunch to shop for after you stop being intimidated by their self-deprecating irony during conversations.
