It all started with a small crew of bike enthusiasts riding the roads and trails of Mount Tamalpais, in Marin County, California. As the friendly competition intensified on a steep dirt fire road they called Repack, Marin's mountain bikers began craving upgrades from the old Schwinn balloon-tire bikes they had rescued from junkyards. With an intense focus found only among the truly obsessed, this group sparked a rapid evolution from old castoff "clunker" bikes to the modern mountain bike, a refined and elegant machine that became the top-selling type of bicycle in the world.

Charlie Kelly — organizer of the Repack races, chronicler of the sport, and co-founder with Gary Fisher of the MountainBikes company — delivers, often in hilarious style, the history of the rise of mountain biking and its lasting culture. Rich with lively descriptions and bursting with original photographs, drawings, and memorabilia, Fat Tire Flyer gives first-hand the story of one of the most significant inventions of the 20th century. This is a high-quality hardcover book you will treasure! When you buy your copy from Marin Museum of Bicycling, it's signed by the author and two fellow mountain bike pioneers, Joe Breeze and Otis Guy.
