Wheelie

Still substantially cooler than rollerblading

Still substantially cooler than rollerblading

There’s a long standing debate in San Francisco about the coolness of various self-propelled rolling devices. The “city” is split among many different factions (without rancor of course, this is San Francisco) about which device is truly the coolest.

Over the last few months I have infiltrated the semi-courteous debates among tattooed,  pierced  and skinny-jeaned hipsters and I am proud to announce that SFIW has uncovered not only what the coolest SPRD is, but for the first time ever, an official, sanctioned, top-10 raking!

The Official SFIW

Top Ten Self Propelled Rolling Devices

  1. Skateboard
  2. Kid’s Sneakers with Built-In Wheels
  3. Bicycle – Fixed Gear (no fly wheel)
  4. Bicycle – Single Gear (with lame fly wheel)
  5. Long Board
  6. Roller Skates
  7. Bicycle (with super lame gears and brakes)
  8. Scooters
  9. Parrot / Thigh Powered Stand-Up Roller Thing
  10. Rollerblades

About adamahata

On February 5, 2008, after 15 amazing years in New York City, I got married, changed careers, and moved out to San Francisco. All within a three-week period, and with very little preparation. This blog is for those of you who follow me out to San Francisco (or have been here for a while and are still trying to figure this place out). You're not in Kansas anymore Dorothy.
