Being a cyclist sometimes traps you in a conformed state of mind of constantly pushing yourself, enduring pain, enjoying suffering uphills, and battling the weather. For the love of bikes, we become competitive, tough, and resilient. We have the drive to make ourselves stronger and find new challenges, just like in an anime.
Wait, let me stop at that. Who are we kidding? We can't take ourselves too seriously. Sure a bunch of us are mountain goats. But deep down inside, we all are big DORKS on bikes. Yes, the uncool kids who spend a huge time on manga, anime, and toys. When we're not out riding, we're all hunched up on our gunpla.
It all started with a color scheme. Being Gundam geeks that we are, references to The Red Comet Char Aznable became inevitable. A few tweaks here and there and a bit of Zaku love on the side, CVTFG's Test Kit came about. We wear our hearts on our sleeves, and as much as we love our rides, we can't take ourselves too seriously.
Here's to you geeks and outcasts riding their hearts out. SIEG ZEON!
