    Why hasn't this happened already?

    Because Jo said he'd rather stop drawing Mint than have him in stw and because Mark said they coudln't afford him anyway?

    Mint has been on MBUK since it has more or less started….

    so why break the tradition?

    also I like MBUK as it has a lot of info on the whole spectrun of MTB, ok it can be childish at times but hey… in most people's eyes MTB'ing is childish anyway!!!

    Does STW need a strip? It's not that common among magazines to have a cartoon, I remember one of the other magazines had a cartoon strip that was awful. This was about fifteen years ago and can't remember the magazine, now defunct I believe.
    MS in STW would be god but obviously not going to happen.

    I love Mint Sauce. Didnt quite 'get it' before. Then it clicked πŸ˜€

    [/reminisce on] I remember reading my first Mint Sauce cartoon in a 1988 edition of "Bicycle Action", long before the likes of MBUK appeared on the scene! [/reminisce off]

    OK, so Jo doesn't want to do Mint for STW, but maybe there could be space for…

    Son of Mint?

    <whispers> I quite like Mint Sauce where it is. Mubbuk isn't that bad, it does cover all the events, not just hippityhoppity and down'illing </w>

    Mint Sauce is for grown ups. MBUK isn't.

    Love Mint Sauce but haven't bought MBUK for about 10 years! I'm waiting for the book.

    Why's that Jo? (the not having it in ST thing?)

    Also Jo, is there anywhere I can get a decent printof the 20th anniversary poster that went out with MBUKsometime last year?

    I've got that in a frame but it's all creased from the mag

    I'd always assumed because then MS would have to get a mortgage, kids, an Octavia diesel estate and spend his time arguing about bad driving on internet forums rather than actually going riding.

    MBUK is good. Mint Sauce fits well in it.

    It'd be a bit smug in ST, plus what aracer said.

    rather than actually going riding

    Er, is he doing any actual riding?

    People who want Mint Sauce in STW are just middle aged men dreaming about their halcyon days when MBUK was it, and purple lycra and a matching fleece were considered normal MTBing-wear.

    I like JoB's style (as and when I recognize it), and particularly enjoy his contributions to Rouleur.

    I could never understand Mint Sauce

    "Why's that Jo? (the not having it in ST thing?)"

    any reason for me to move to ST would be the same reason for me deciding to stop, amongst a whole host of other whys and wherefores too tedious to go into here

    and i'd love to do a decent print of the 20th anniversary poster, they royally f***ed up the colour on that, and it should have sat nicely in a field of white paper, heyho

    and what john_l said

    Shame- is there a print quality pdf of it available at all? GFs dad is a printer

    errrrrr, i have a photo

    I've just studied about 8 different Mint Sauces and realised that I really don't understand what they're about!

    edit: Perhaps it's a Garfield/Dilbert thing – I've never managed to read a whole Garfield strip without my attention wandering, but have been glued to Dilbert πŸ™‚

    that'll do!

    Dilbert strips are typically only three panels long, Garfield's can run to 5 or 6 and a Mint cartoon can have at least a good dozen to read, i think i can see the problem

    People always pretend they got into Mint Sauce years ago just like people pretend to have met JMC or seen him racing.

    Boring.

    i think i can see the problem

    yeah, far too long winded πŸ™

    or is it because Mint Sauce only has at most 4 riders in it?

    Some of them I don't get, but some just really strike a chord.

    I've got Just Killing Time stuck on my wall here at work, something about it just makes me smile.

    Or maybe some of us are just getting on a bit and really did used to buy the mag in the 90's and rode bikes?
    When I started it were all fields etc etc.

    I never read them.

    close, I'm not a cat person so I don't understand Garfield
    and I'm not a sheep person so I don't understand Mint Sauce
    however I'm not a dog person but Dogbert is hilarious …

    BTW Scott Adams claims he just redraws Garfield with his own characters πŸ™‚

    Respect due to JoB for having the skill to capture what mucking about on bikes, stopping for long enough to get smacked in the face by the beauty of where you're effort has got you, and how it brings a smile to your face as soon as the 'can't be arΒ£3d' gremlins have been squashed back into the box they came out of.

    I have to know… Is summer based on a real person you know?

    + 1 for the reprint of the anniversary poster without the creases!
