The Breakthrough - Sunday Comics with Taj Mihelich

Aug 23, 2020
by Taj Mihelich  
Here's some comics I drew for your entertainment (hopefully).

This is what I think of when I hear a top-of-the-line bike's suspension described as "terrain flattening".


I've been enjoying master pallet rider Danny MacAskill's Instagram a lot! Every few days he turns those things into something even more amazing than the last configuration.



I admit I can't actually point to anything in particular that is funny about this comic, but the little draw-this-or-you-can't-go-to-sleep voice in my head told me to draw it. So, now it exists.

 I know Taj was...down on himself for that comic, but I think it was my favorite of the group! The absurdity tickled me for some reason.

 sadly, too much "trail flattening" is going on.. you're not getting faster the trail is getting smoother.

 Depends where you live. The trails here generally get rougher.

 @DHhack: the same in Alpe d'Huez. If a blue trail gets too rough, they just reclassify it as red :p

 i do find it a bit strange that riders spend a huge amount of money on terrain eating 8" travel bikes, then have to build courses that are rougher and more gnarly than you would ever see in nature to justify it.

 Arms race for sure. If the metric is fun, a mellow trail on an old hard tail 26'er can be a hoot.
