It has been now a few weeks. Gnome and Snakehawk have been testing the waters, nudging old friends, and making new ones. It may be hard to tell just yet what is supposed to happen when you visit this thing called Superissimo. If you’re okay with that, we’re okay with that too.
We’ve both pitted brain against wall in industry and sport. There are decades of combined experience in loving, hating, loving and loving the bike, but every time the whiff of bike shop saunters within range du nostrille we elate. If you know the same, then we’re certain you can relate in some way to the ramblings of Superissimo. As if we are a 2.0 version of a guy named Ernie mitering tubes to the light of a candle. This is our passion.
Initially we started out thinking that we’d highlight things we love, things we need, and things we do. So far it’s been an exercise in putting vocabulary in place of the things we think. Bear with us for chuckles, and do not take it seriously. In the vie du velo, there exists a stammer; voices that have just begun to crack the code of our culture are boiling on the surface. The ones that aren’t yet angry, jaded, or bitter are laughing.
Laugh with us. Cycling is beautiful. Cycling is awful. Cycling is nothing. Cycling is everything. Superissimo is all of those, and we hope that as we grow, you will love the bicycle more each time you visit our pages.
Happy New Year, and thank you for being our friend.
