Preparing to ride on a daily basis takes up enough time as it is. Most of my time is lost standing in my closet. Why does it bother me so much to make sure everything matches? This is an obsession of mine that think is ridiculous, so you don’t have to comment and tell me. I can’t help it. Or maybe I can, I just don’t want to at the moment. OCD? Most definitely. Who cares if the bike is gray and blue and you’re wearing a bright red helmet and kit, as long as you’re fast and strong, right?
Every since I bought my new bike, everything is off. Believe me. I know that I should be ecstatic with my new ride (and I am . . . very much so), but all of my stuff is red and black from my last bike. This time I’m going to buy a helmet and shoes that will match in a neutral way. This sounds nuts I know. Is there any truth to . . . look better, feel better, ride better? No, I’m not a team kit wearer; that is one of my peeves. I just like to at least look like I know what I’m doing.
What say you?
