How are Open Pros tarck?

Should you say like Weinmanns or something???

Wait, I don’t get it, actually.

What about the tarckiest wheel ever: AEROSPOKE

Tarck doesn’t even mean anything anymore.

that’s how I see tarck atleast. Open Pros, track drops, vintage Italian goodies, proper bar tape jobs, clipless and bike couriers are all antitheses of tarck.

I agree with all that, except bare instead of ourys and threaded instead of threadless (Jaguar). And I don’t shit about bags, and I hate all you jokers who wear mess bags.

The tarckest cranks:

This is atleast how I see tarck.

I don’t think 75s deserve this.

Unless of course we’re talking about anodized, then they’re fair game.

I don’t know, tarck doesn’t mean bad to me. I ride/have some very tarck things. Veeps, sambas, chrome bag, MKS Sylvans, plus I live in SF so that right there makes me tarck as hell.

Wheel: Disc wheel airbrushed with a picture of two demon chicks making out

I dont get the point of this thread. but basically, do hipsters use the word tarck bike instead of just saying thats a hipster ass bike? cause whenever i see a bike like this i just tell my friend wow thats a fucking lame ass hipster bike, yesterday we saw these two iro’s with hipgrip bars, it was ugly and a pista.
