- Mint Sauce to Singletrack Petition
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.Posted 9 years ago
MS in STW would be god but obviously not going to happen.ourmaninthenorthSubscriber
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.Posted 9 years ago
"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

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 🙂Posted 9 years agojoolsburgerMember
People always pretend they got into Mint Sauce years ago just like people pretend to have met JMC or seen him racing.
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?Posted 9 years ago
When I started it were all fields etc etc.
or is it because Mint Sauce only has at most 4 riders in it?
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 🙂Posted 9 years ago
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 ar£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!Posted 9 years ago
