As I ride down the streets of Somerville, Massachusetts wearing my VOmax Techwear Bruins kit, large men in trucks yell: “You [expletive starting with an F and ending with a G] biking [pejorative term describing sexual orientation]…that is [the former expletive again] AWESOME!” They literally don’t know whether to head butt me and then kick me when I’m down or hug me and then buy me a beer. Whether I’m riding down the bike path between Lexington and Somerville or ripping through the woods, people of all ages yell “BROONS!” at me. I guess what I’m trying to say is that wearing a VOmax Bruins kit is pretty sweet.
More photos after the break.
Even non-Bruins fans have to admit that these things are bad ass.
The pink gloves and helmet cause large men in trucks even further consternation. Ultimately the inherent awesomeness of the Bruins kit wins out.
It doesn’t just look good either, I’ve been testing this kit out for a while now, and it is as comfortable as anything. The club cut jersey was particularly nice for accommodating my Jan Ullrich-like ballooning this past winter. And, while I’m used to wearing bibs, the shorts were great for winter riding for…reasons we won’t go into.
Uh…how did that get in there? This is a photo of me marking the area between my massive socks and my Bruins shorts for the purposes of selective leg shaving. You guys weren’t supposed to see this.
Dyude, there’s nothin’ like drinkin’ a laahge iced from Dunkins right after a haahd ride in your VOmax Bruins kit kid!
