My friend is a hipster hipster

(closed)
He is telling me he is going to build up a fixed gear.

ME - "Cool man, what did you have in mind?"

HIM - "I like the 735, I also want a Trispoke"

ME - "Yeah Leader's are dope! Why do you want a $1200 wheel? Do you want to ride the velodrome"

HIM - "Nah I just think it'd be sick."

ME - "It's not practical, you're better off building a nice road set!!!!"

HIM - "Oh. Well it's gonna be sick."

After that I wanted to smack him. Does anyone else think a HED trispoke is even close to being a practical everyday ride? I sure as hell don't.

Does your friend know you're talking behind his back?

He isn't a hipster. He has been into cycling before me as it is. It's just now he is wanting a track build. But for the streets, and he said it had to have a Tri spoke. So I'm calling him hipster about it. I also gave him a lecture on why that is a bad idea haha

He should know better. But a $2500 road bike is "comparable" to what he is looking for in his track build, but its ridiculous!?!?

He'll probably do it. He will probably regret it. But I just wanted second opinions, I've never seen one in the flesh. I just see it getting jacked, or cracking.

I am in the aspect of riding a fixed gear, I'll admit. My personality isn't hipster. You don't even know me!
