“I bought a coat in December and its already basically useless from what isn’t even normal wear and tear. Within a week, the seams were coming loose …”

“I tried to return it, and they of course, wouldn’t accept it because it had been worn.”

“Now, two months later, the zipper won’t close and most of the threading has come undone. What’s the point in supporting local business if it’s overpriced and under-quality?”

PICTURED: The now infamous “BIKE CULTURE NOT 4 SALE” graffito from the BI store at Union and 5th.

ASIDE: So what is “Bike Culture” anyway? More from the Park Slope Message Boards:

Rhodamine says: ” ‘Bike culture’ for me is… friends who come over and paint frames in my basement, who stay in touch on lots of non-spandex messageboards, who race in alleycats, who hang out in the bike shop… after hours.. and bring beer, talking about bikes, obsessing over configurations, joining transalt, fighting for cyclists rights, meeting for regular rides/races in the parks/streets, etc. And yes, there are bike clubs/gangs. I’m sure few to none hang at starbucks.”
