K-On classic bicycle ride. Ex:ride!

K-On classic bicycle ride. Ex:ride!
05 Jul 2010 08:50:38

Let me continue with my ex:ride madness. Mu597 suggested to recreate this scene when I’ll be reviewing my ex:ride classical bikes.


So, when few days ago Tsumugi and Ritsu figmas arrived safely at my headquarters, I decided to do so. Between photos I will rant about ex:ride classic bikes. Why rant? Because they disappointed me>_< So~


Actually I’ve got 5 different colored classical bikes, but after unpacking and a long struggle to pose figma girls on them I regretted getting so many. They are HIGHLY unstable, even with this transparent plastic thing on the back wheel.


I spend nearly an hour making K-on girls actually sit on this tiiiiiny seat and placing their feet on the treadles properly. Remember my one-colored figma 1st year Anniversary bike from my “Holiday with Haruhi” post:


In terms of stability this cheap toy (it was originally given away for free by figma staff) is much, MUCH better!


And more: ex:ride bicycles are EXTREMELY fragile. As I noticed, all ex:ride items are made from same cheap plastic. When you’re dealing with motorcycles or Wheel walkers it’s okay, but when it comes to some thin thing like a bicycle frame, it gets really dangerous. I’m surprised I managed not to break 1 or 2 bikes by accident.


So, with this instability, my photo shoot soon ended… In this uncool way >__<


P.S. I’m not satisfied with my point-and-shoot camera anymore. Need better one. Start saving^_^

P.P.S. While I was making this post more parcels arrived. Now in addition to American bike I showed you in previous ex:ride post I have have a mini bike and a street-style set to review.

Sorry to hear about the bikes, Mio in particular looks as if she's just about to fall over. Do you think using a figma stand or dI stage would have helped them stay up better?

Mugi looks really good in these pictures as well.

Maybe you're right about di:stage! It didn't cross my mind actually^_^

And Mugi turned out to be my favorite K-On figma.
I'm too old for this shit, ain't I?

Ooooh, sorry to hear that. At least on photos they look quite neat.
Huh, have just noticed Mugi's face. Everyone's trying hard to keep their balance on the bikes, while she's cheerful as usual :D

BTW, what kind of camera are you saving on?
The rain beats hard at my window
While you so softly do sleep...

I'm mot quite sure about the model in fact. My friends (they are in film business, so they know things^^) have a nice camera. They were tired of carrying around big pro cameras and bought something light weight, not pro. That cam they have, some Canon, I assume, is really something! It's point-and-shoot, but photos are great and sharp!
It costs some 20000 rubles. A long time of saving for me, in my current situation, but it's worth it.
