5 Safety Tips - Sunday Comics with Taj Mihelich

Apr 14, 2019
by Taj Mihelich  


I've been reading a cycling safety book from the 70's. It is full of blatant sexism and nonsensical tips for cyclists. It got me thinking that it might be funny for a future comic to illustrate some direct quotes out of the book. My new version could have a more modern spin on bikes and human beings. In the meantime, I thought I would share some universal safety tips we can all benefit from.

 I love it! Keep it going! I’m excited to see your illustrations of the outdated crazy 70s era cycling tips. We need more light hearted silly stuff on here.

 High five for the helmet follow up. Nicely played referential subtlety.

 That cow with 6 teats doesn’t need a baseball bat to sketch me out.

 i once saw someone land like that. They guy was only doing a 5ft drop, and had plastic pedals. But the carnage to his shins was absolutely incredible. Pretty much skinned himself, the poor guy.

 ive done it. the doctor said the gashes were too wide to stitch. had to clean them twice a day for 2 weeks. they run about 6" on each leg. whats funny is they are staggered between legs, height wise... about 165mm difference lololol

 My father-in-law, first time he ever experienced disc brakes: INSTANTLY over the bar, flat on his back, in the puddle he was trying to avoid.

 Has Taj branched out from BMX to MTB? Are we going to see a possible Terrible One enduro bike?

 If/when it is created, how about Terrible 29? Terrible OneBy? Or maybe travel spec will appear in the name... e.g. Terrible One Sixty.

 God I fucking hope not. There are plenty of super lame MTB brands out these days for you to gravitate to. Leave BMX alone once and for all
