Bicyclying Comics?

Do you guys have any favorite bike-related comic strips or online comics you enjoy? How about the occasional bike-related comic from big newspapers?

I've noticed a lot of good stuff from Calvin and Hobbes. Here are a few of my favorites







Anyone have any more? I like collecting these.

FRAZZ!!

If you love Calvin, you'll love Frazz. He's like what Calvin might have been grown up.

Jef Mallet drops cycling references and the main character Frazz usually has an obscure cycling/running logo on the t-shirt under his janitorial jumpsuit.

From a few weeks ago...

Click on this link. Frazz is in a lot of major papers.

Also, there are books. Check Amazon.

Here's the latest release.... the cover even has Frazz puffing it out on rollers. Click on the pic for the amazon listing.

Andy Singer has done quite a few comics concerning cycling and the environment. I love his drawing style.

Here's his site:

Yeah, Calvin and his demon bike are classics..I miss that strip so much!

FREE AIR?!?!?!

In SoCA they charge us to use the air pump.

So my wife got me a 25 gal compressor for our anniversary.

There's only 1 place that has free air around here anymore. As such, i buy my gas from there when i can. Problem these days is that gas stations are just that these days, gas stations. Not service stations anymore. No service = no need for compressor because you dont need one to dispense gas.
