2.12.08 by Buffalo Bill
Earlier this year, in my own homage to bikesnob’s pistadex, I devised the Zindex. At that time it was running at +3.93 (the sale price of a 2nd hand Zo bag divided by the price of a new one). Earlier today, a 2nd hand Zo bag sold for $237, giving a Zindex of +2.37. This means that the Zindex, a measure of the hipness of messenger culture, has plunged by 1.56, a loss of nearly 40%. The credit crunch has bitten urban hipsters hard.
Thanks to westcoast at House of Pistard for reminding me about the Zindex.
