1st of all sorry if this is the wrong place to post this question but I couldnt think of anywhere else to post it.

Somebody else might of posted this question already but I couldnt find and answer when I did a search for it.

Why is there an ant on the homepage? Is it even an ant? Does it have a name? Ive always wondered what it is doing there. Thanks

Chris and I thought in the beginning that it would be nice to have some mascot.
I stumbled across some small ant icon and thought that's perfect:
an ant can carry loads up to 30x as heavy as their own weight,
which symbolizes what every bike component should be: light & strong at the same time.

If someone of you out there is an illustrator and is able to draw some more
artistic ant basing on the ant of the original icon, feel free to contact me. :)
