Eva -01 Bike Shorts Aren't just for Biking

They're for looking super cool.

 

 Der's two of them!
 Der's two of them!
Fresh on the trail of the Rei and Asuka Evangelion Bikes, Media Magic has decided to release official, super comfy/cool looking Evangelion Bike Shorts. Though, calling them bike shorts (or spats) doesn't change the fact that I would use them for leisure wear. Anyhoo, there was a helmet and some stickers they also announced were in production, but they really are nothing to write home about...
 
 Don't lie, you'd ride them.
 Don't lie, you'd ride them.

So instead I'm just going to postulate on the significance of how they made Asuka and Rei "the vehicles," yet they made the Eva unit "the pilot."
 
It could be some sort of reversal of roles, or maybe, really... we all just want to ride those two, even if you are a 20 story tall murder mech.

Man I haven't owned a bike in like forever. The last one I had was borrowed by my little sister without permission and then subsequently stolen, something I tell everyone every chance I get so as to constantly remind her of it. Actually she ended up getting kind of pissed off about it, and started reminding me of that time I jumped on her chest and almost broke her ribs. 
 
So anyway, bikes, WOO-HOO!

@RockmanBionics: I love my bike, but I draw the line at the spandex shorts. I'm just not THAT kind of bicyclist.

As the staff here knows, I'm regularly sporting some *mmh-hmm* form-hugging lycra duds when I ride into the office from my secret base on the moon, so I certainly have just enough of a lack of shame to wear these. So now, with these Eva shorts, I will be a robo-man on my trusty aluminum sky leopard, striking fear into the hearts of criminal and normal alike.

I would wear them to yoga, go well with my SW exercise shirt.
 Wonder if I can get Eva speedos...
