Long Riders is a show that I will freely admit has problems (most prominently, scheduling problems). The one thing though which has consistently impressed me throughout the show is just how good the bikes look! The creators have modelled the bicycles on existing models and put a great deal of care into all of the details of a bike. A bike is a pretty complicated piece of equipment with a lot of parts and accessories and so I’m truly impressed with their appearance.
One moment where I think the beauty of a road bike really shines is where Ami takes her bike into Alpaca Cycle for a service.
Look at these lovely gears, don’t you want to just reach out and touch them! Only don’t touch the gears on a bike for no reason, your hands will end up really greasy.
I think anime can really shine in casting light on a hobby or area of interest. The carefully crafted bicycles make bikes look really appealing!
