I'm not OK with people who aren't OK with free high fives.

I wasn't referring to you when commenting on people who act superior. After all, I'm not ignoring you, am I? :P I was describing the people I do ignore. Being a trend slut /= looking down on others who aren't. By that definition, I'm just as much a trend slut as you are(maybe more, I'd bet you ride more than I do.) Chalk up my question about "how I was playing the tough guy" as me failing at reading.

How am I playing the tough guy? Cause "I don't have time for them"? I'm confused about how ignoring people who act superior to me is playing the tough guy.

Sure Waki, I lust after the latest tech. I don't have much of it(I still have a MoCo Damper in my Lyrik, hah!) but I want it. but I don't really have the time of day for people who act like they're better cause their bike is lighter/more expensive/better damped than mine, or my buddies, any more than I do for fashionistas. Look, the article was written as satire, but it mostly comes off as petty whining about things the author finds "tasteless," because he treated the thing he finds tasteless as the target of ridicule. Real satire would be to make fun of CARING about those things. For example, if he had written, after how it's not cool to wear your full face on your head, that it's not cool to stick it on your seat, then a point about how it's not cool to hang it off your bars. Everybody can get on board with that: "there's no good place to keep my full face when I'm not wearing it, so who cares about where people choose to put it!" Satire is about meta comedy. Otherwise, you're just writing plain comedy, which doesn't work if you attack your audience.

Here the thing: I actually like getting parts that match the colors of my bike. I like finding gear I can afford that looks good together. But I don't really have the time of day for someone who judges others based on it.

These articles always come off as pretentious, no matter how much the guy tries to make it a joke. Editorial Do's & Dont's: Don't write a Do's & Dont's or "things that bug me about other people" article, because you will always come off as being a tool.

Gloworm X1 and XS Lights - Review
In the same places(like Amazon) that you find the cheap lights for sale, they often have lenses to change the beam shape. Can't say how they work, haven't tried any.
