Stay Home and Design - Sunday Comics with Taj Mihelich

Apr 19, 2020
by Taj Mihelich  
One of the unproven methods I've adopted to protect myself from the coronavirus is to eat something every single time I walk through my kitchen. I find myself leaving my home office to stop by the feed zone many times per day. Too many. I know I am both privileged and very lucky to have a comfortable home that includes a supply of frozen pizza but this stay at home order is wreaking havoc on my health.

I've heard other people have experienced similar difficulties. Locked at home, unsupervised with food can be a real test of will power.


Pro riders are also challenged in these times. No more gym combined with time off the bike can't be good for someone focused on ultimate performance. Body mass is going up while bike handling skills are going down.

I miss watching the races and I miss riding. I'm spending more and more time dreaming of "better days".

And so for your entertainment, I thought I would share some of the post-Corona products I have dreamed up that did not (for some untold reason) make it into the Pond Beaver coverage.


I'm not really sure how I ever lived only eating two or three times a day. I think post-Corona world is going to find me unable to go more than a handful of minutes without a slice of pizza. This product will help keep an emergency slice near-to-hand.

I expect all future Pinkbike Field Test reviews will include notes about whether a full-size pizza slice will fit the bike.




A more expensive and high-performance based option is this battery-powered pizza feed system similar to a roll-off system for goggles.




I'm hoping to sell this product idea to Muc-Off for big bucks. A lot of people like me are going to need this.



Stay safe and healthy out there everyone.

PS: Not at all related to cartoons or mountain bikes but perhaps connected to "better days", I posted up a story of a bike trip I took over the Alps. It's here if you're into that kind of thing.

 For cold morning rides, I used to put warm soup in my 2nd insulated bottle. It wasn't alphabat soup, though. The bits would clog up the nozzle.

 What if someone put pineapple on a pizza. Then put it in the pizza box that was attached to an e-bike. With 29er wheels. With the wrong drive train and brake manufacturer instead of the other one.

For the record, i love ham and pineapple pizza. And i wont apologise to a single person. Or multiple people for that matter.

 Im down voting you for saying you love pineapple pizza with ham. Pinkbike shouldnt allow these type of comments here. That is not okay.

 I'm laughing because this is a completely relatable "cabin fever" comment that reflects the ridiculous thoughts many of us have had in this time of corona... both pineapple on my pizza if I have a choice though!

 All the models in Taj's comics should be pinkbike writers. In an unflattering way, for our enjoyment.

 Much more innovative ideas than tweaking existing components by a few decimal points. Not to mention all these innovation are compatible with all sizes and standards.

 Pizza needs a magnetic mount with self centering guide. Also need a TEXAN size for XL frames and a Hollywood size for those dieters. The thickness of the container should come in thin, regular and deepdish.

 If I9 can make volume dial end caps a reality, then someone has to make the pizza container happen.

 If that pizza slice container is cooled with maybe some of that gel stuff they put in those ice pads or cooler blocks?
Could be onto something Taj
Or heated even?

 this reminds me of the food pyramid mural in Portland, pizza is part of a balanced diet, for sure
