No matter what kind of bike you ride, you can’t help but laugh at Robin Moore’s rap video “Performance,” featuring the beats and rhymes of MC SpandX. He professionally skewers both the spandex-clad racers and hipsters riding fixies, a rivalry that thrives in every city that has a cycling culture.
SpandX rhymes: “Is that a steel frame from 1988? You might as well use it as an anchor weight.” It hits hard for anyone who loves the old school, which — if you read “The Discipline of Steel” — includes at least one Scene staffer. — Michael Gill
