    Back in the day I used to know this bloke called michael milhinch who really wanted to live the mtb (well mbuk) life, but had a few wannabe / fantasist issues. Think of how Westwood would have turned out if he got into mtbs. The guy even had some business cards printed up with ‘Pedro Bull – mtb journalist’, no doubt to ape ‘Zack Tempest’.
    Anyway, he started boasting that he was going to be in the next mint-sauce cartoon. And sure enough he was. IIRC there was a covered corpse in a mortuary with a toe sticking out, and on that toe was a tiny toe tag with the name ‘millhinch’ scribbled on it.

    That’s my favorite 🙂

    that one where he wears pink lycra and starts singing erasure songs while looking wistfully up to the sky.
    wondering why he was born a cycling sheep with no reproductive organs in a rad dood kids mtb magazine instead of appearing somewhere more worthy.

    I really like the one where he rides up to heaven to see god.

    2 memorable ones for me – the one where they are dragging bags full of £10 notes through the mud – so true.
    and this one (also true!)

    My current fave is “The Man with the Hammer” from Rouleur. In fact, I think all of Jo’s illustrations in Rouleur are ace.

    Yeah, good on you Jo for being so central to the lives of so many thirty-somethings wishing they were young again…!

    Following on from DezB’s Darkside, it doesnt get much Darker than this!

    Just the one frame pinned to my office wall. Makes me chuckle. October 1991 according to the back of it. I think (wrongly quite possibly) that Mint was still black and white and never more than half a page at that point.

    My fave was the one where Mint is caught cleaning his bike in the bath only for his missus to b*llock him for using a a Panaracer Dart on his rear wheel. Thanks to JoB for Mint!

    Bloody hell that trail forecast…I actually recognise the lyrics, I think thats a first!

    Learning to ride is good, eternal reek of damp wool is pretty cool, I still have there’s an art to mountain biking somewhere (but my wife won’t let me put it up in the front room!) and I really like granny ring but i think my fave is:-

    As someone said earlier it’s gotta be the one where they’re scoping out a line down a rooty drop. They discuss how it’s “nadgery” with nasty,nasty roots.Mint says “Doable” and Death puts his quill pen to his lips ready to write his name in his book!

    We’ve referred to that cartoon on our rides more than any other.

    Lot’s of people seem to have prints (any originals?). Just wondering do you have to be special or go to a special event to get one or can anyone get hold of them at any time. I’ve seen a few that I’d buy out of this lot.

    I Love JoB’s work, I’m another one in the girl sitting on hill as my favourite camp.

    Although as an artist I know he can be a little tempremental, I know I know he apologised to me ages ago 😉

    Aaaah, Mint Sauce, memories of a simpler time when I “worked” in a bike shop reading MBUK all day, lusted after a Kona Explosif – it was 1994, and rode – A LOT!!! I must admit I’ve come over all misty eyed and the missus thinks I’m going through some sort of mid-life crisis………… could be right.

    Mint cartoons were the visual soundtrack, if there is such a thing to my biking childhood. Loved them to bits and if ever there was a book, I’d buy it they take me right back to those days. Thanks Jo, huge thanks.

    Well said Mikey, and another +1 to buying the book!

    I’ve read them since way back when £500 bike tests were £100 bike tests, and they were the only reason to buy MBUK, if I read anything else in that mag it was after Mint Sauce. I love them all and they all remind me of different times and different moments in my Mountain Biking life; like the first LX chainset I got (£30! How much?) the first time I did the High Street in the Lakes and recalling the summer cartoon, and thinking “I’m actually doing it!” Saddest one is reading a certain issue at a certain downhill in Derbyshire, waiting for a certain McRoy to turn up, then hearing the saddest news of all over the tannoy…but that ain’t Jo’s fault.

    Mint Sauce has that power to evoke the best in us, to bring out the feelings that we normally keep hidden, and to remind us why we love mountain biking so much. An artist that can make us laugh at the same time as drawing a tear, and make us wistful in Winter for the Spring that’s coming should be lauded from on high! So, Jo, I’ve never met you, don’t know if I will, but I feel like you know me, I feel like you see what I see, amazing. Keep on keeping on, and is there no chance of a compilation?

    Best,

    LJ.

    The thing I love about them is not just the general sentiments which always seem to be spot on but also all the little details that you spot when you look at them in more details.

    I just spotted some Faith No More lyrics at the top of this one– bit of a suprise!

    WHat Aviemoron and Lost Jonny said.

    Reading this thread yesterday it did fill me up with emotion, harking back to the early / mid nineties of lusting – and I mean REALLY lusting over bikes, when new suspension forks were coming out with 2 full inches of travel, skinny steel was still what bikes were made of, shimano LX (93) was porn… Happy happy days, and MS just seems to encapsulate the feeling, all that was good, not so good and laughable about being a mountain biker back in the day.

    Another shout for a Mint Sauce compendium. I have a lot of old magazine tearouts, posters and calendars but I’d buy a book for sure. Has it ever been seriously mooted?

    Im another one that has this thread bringing back memories. I can remember as a little girl stealing my brothers MBUK just to read mint sauce and wanting to go out and bike but I was too young to be allowed to join in.

    why isn’t there a JoBurt strip in ST, seems like there would be a few readers who’d welcome it?

    The one this month, with a hint of summer was particularly nice. Another one here who would buy a couple of mint sauce compendiums. Would need to be hardback and nicely printed on larger than A4 paper, with posters included.
    Big fan!

    “why isn’t there a JoBurt strip in ST”

    I don’t think they coudl afford him, tbh.

    I get the impression if it wasn’t in mbuk he’d stop and do something else, as well.
