classic book covers


there seems to be a lot of book covering remixing going on at the moment but these xmen ones are particularly well realised even if you don't know much about the comic

chris akrigg

chris krigg shows how it should be done when the prancing pony mountain bike boys give up their suspension and their dropper posts, their addiction to wide bars and wrong sized wheels and do cycling as it should be done. *

*in fairness to the fragile egos of certain of the baggy shorted mob it should be pointed out that i'm a rotund fellow of a certain age who conforms to many a mountain bike stereotype (except i don't own an audi, work in i.t., don't need to stop every five minutes and have never, ever had a conversation about tyre suitability). also i should point out that every time chris akrigg is jumping a log or whatever i;d would be variously over the bars, headbutting a tree or otherwise floundering about on my backside.

cyclocross is the business tho.
