New Old Stock: The Illustrated Journal of a Civilised Cyclist

by Shawn Granton

A journal comic from self-described "Retrogrouch" Shawn Granton. He tackles many common problems of being civilised in an uncivilized world such as, how much plaid wool can one person wear for winter attire? Where does find a classy 3 speed city bike (from a packrat in Vancouver), Bicycle Touring does not equal Animal Liberation, fight nonsense with nonsense, attract other Surly Long Haul Trucker riders by having yours nearby at all times, put saddle covers on strangers bikes to protect them from rain, carrying coffee on your bike, dynamo hubs and rain capes are given the thumbs up, British three speeds are the bike of choice, and the postcard as time capsule. But above all of this solid, entertaining content, Shawn is willing to embrace and acknowledge his younger, former self, soul patch and all. Highly recommended for anyone who recognizes at least three of the above references.
