Scraper Bikes

Oakland, California- Perhaps it’s the gas prices going up or just pure love for the bicycles here in the east bay. A few years back I noticed kids hanging out by the MacArthur B.A.R.T. Station riding bicycles with a whole different attitude, and style reminiscent of low rider bikes. These young men represent lovely with the under the driving age version of the Scraper (check out the link below for the urban dictionary definition:) http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=scraper

The music video is made by the rap group Trunk Boiz in and around the neighborhood of North Oakland

    Seems like the whole fetishized movement in support of bike riding! Representation of identity through the bicycles!
