Charlie says… This is the much awaited account of what really went on in one of the most colourful corners of the bike world. The presentation is a real stand out, with countless photographs, old catalogues, and the most amazing (and somewhat trippy) illustrations. Wait ’til you get to the bit where GF crawls through the air conditioning vents to eavesdrop on a business meeting he shouldn’t be at.
The publishers says…
Meet Gary Fisher. The maverick kid bike racer who cycled straight into the Acid Test scene and lit up the Grateful Dead gigs, the relentless tinkerer who transformed an industry and sold mountain biking to the world and the visionary who’s still working flat-out every day to prove that bikes are the answer to a healthier, happier future for everyone.
A collaboration with cycling writer Guy Kesteven, Being Gary Fisher and the Bicycle Revolution is an autobiography of sorts. It’s also a mind-blowing trip of ingenious innovation, dogged determination and boundless energy. Get caught up in Gary’s crazy tales and his lifelong mission to invite everyone to the greatest dance on earth.
