Andrew was mentioning this to me (haven’t seen it) and there is likely an article in there.  What I wonder is how the motivations differ? Are goth kids simply trying to fit in, because the culture they live in doesn’t work for them, and achieve status with their lifestyle and fashion choices within this group? That seems likely and a parallel can be drawn for sure.  A question I have is how does performance fit into that equation. The conversations I have with riding friends focus on performance and getting the bike to work with you in challenging terrain and to keep up with my buddies. I have no idea what that equates to for goth kids at all. What is the performance equivalent for goths?  How many dudes in suits roll their eyes at you on the bus? How many jocks bully you? What are their metrics?
