#8 – Ural


From an aggressive social media marketing campaign (What, you weren’t aware? Congratulations, you’re not a hipster) to last year’s appearance on the cover of a Hammacher Schlemmer catalog to last month’s announcement of a third consecutive year of sales growth, Ural is poised to make a soviet-sized splash in the hipster gene pool. Still, there are those who argue the Russian marque’s too authentically cool to be a true hipster tool, as we found out during our review. But the same could be said for a few of the bikes on this list. It just proves the adage, “Hip is in the eye of the behipster.”
