Sunday Funnies From 'Over the Bars' Comics

Feb 18, 2018
by robert anke  

One of the coolest things about mountain biking is that it's almost invariably fun. Even after a day with a crash, most of us get back to our cars or houses, bloodied but grinning, and think, "man... that was fun. Just what I needed." And, it feels like that whether we went out on a solo mission, or with other people. When it comes to the other riders that hit the trails with us, it seems like they come in all types.

From our XC buddy that could be, or actually is, a rocket scientist:


To our smart-ass kids:


And the 75-year-old guy at the park that we all want to be one day:


Because even if he takes it easy, there aren't many human beings cooler than the dude taking off his full face at the bottom of the mountain to reveal a lifetime of wrinkles, a wild mop of snow-white hair, and the smile of stoke plastered all over his dentures.

And while we may get frustrated with the "status no" from time to time:


We'll get out there on whatever rig we have to enjoy some quality riding. 'Cause man... mountain biking is fun.

 @rarrity: it’s the mobile view, likely. Text is hard to read even on an iPhone 8, unless you select “desktop view” at the bottom. After that, it’s much better.

 It's only cool if it's low, slack and loooong. And needs a big rubber that doesn't leak sealant quickly.

 To our smart-ass kids:

So spot on, i have hidden new bikes under dust sheets, behind boxes, the wife never noticed, que the young daughter,
"Dad you've got another new bike!"
Sufficient bribes have subsequently shut her up lol

 I have run on the "same color" bike for a while. My wife never notices a new frame. Nor does she care. My 5 year old can pick out a new sticker, decal or top tube shape from across the shop!

 Great comic series here. The guy is our own comic genius. Doing the comic strip genre thing brilliantly, but doing it with a comic series wherein 95% of the general populous won’t get half the jokes. That last strip being the perfect example. But we all laughed knowingly. Great stuff. This guy is one of our own. Keep it up!
