Mt Bike Way of Knowledge: Wm Nealy Zen Comic
[$15 postpaid in the USA. Used.] 100 or so pages of William Nealy comics giving you the lowdown on how to mt-bike. It's from the early days. And it brings you back to those simpler times, before tech, when mt-biking was AS IT STILL ACTUALLY IS WHENEVER YOU'RE IN THE BUSH.
This book is less "counter-culture" than his kayak comics, but it's still plenty far out.
(Nealy also published cosmic comics on whitewater kayaking, which I likewise offer here.)
Here's my Nealy boilerplate: I want to help keep his work out there and alive. We all need a steady dose of The Roots, so here ya go. Why reinvent the wheel and look for something new if the old still works? If you're a thinking person who likes the wild side and you have NOT read Nealy, well, here's your chance to catch up and get hooked in even nicer. Nealy comics help get your head adjusted right for the whitewater way of life. Tell me, where did all the cosmic outdoor sports cartoonists go? We're talking an R. Crumb lineage here. Also, the old "Idiot's Guide to VW Repair," which was "Crumby," too---and opened up the world of car repair to geeks and hippies. But I suppose nothing is groovy anymore. The problem is that as soon as you spend time outdoors it's all groovy all over again. But the only media we have is of the officially correct sort, buttoned-down. How-to guidebooks with liability policies. Directories. Huh? Outdoor sports used to mean culture. Is anyone home? Check out ol' William to get your feet back on the ground. The crazy thing (among crazy things) is that his comics are totally helpful.
