Ok, I'm trying to finish my last semester of school, and you guys turning me on to Yawamushi Pedal is NOT helping. It's a perfect mix of bike and anime nerdiness.

For those of you complaining it's over the top: It's anime. Go watch old school Lemans or Rally racing and then go watch Speed Racer.

Oh, wow. I followed your link. I can't believe I've never read these before. They're hilarious!

Here in Arkansas it seems to go like this:
Spring, Summer, Fall= Overgrown child playing with their toys in the street.
Winter= Homeless.

It's annoying the way people here in Arkansas look at us cyclists.

I just watched the first episode. I can tell I'm going to eat these up like candy. Thanks for sharing, Bovice!

Just watching ep 25 now...I can tell I'm going start yelling "ABS! ABS! ABS!" during town line sprints from now on.

Hey, would anyone be interested in a dedicated Yowapeda thread? I'm sure if we talk about Sakamichi's Mamachari a few times it might qualify as commuting related, ha ha.

Yeah, it's funny, what is "no big deal" to a cyclist is "extreme and crazy" to a non-cyclist.

As far as Yowapeda goes, I'm very hesitant to check it out, because I already don't have time for a job...oh yeah, that's part of the reason for my frugality - to retire so I have time to play, and finish other projects.
