Hey man, you wanna go on a trip, wanna travel… travel through time and space?
Let’s go back to the 80’s and see what was going on in the mountain bike world. Brace yourself, this could get very neon.
Charlie Kelly started the first downhill race, first mountain bike company, and the first magazine: Fat Tyre Flyer. He has hung onto the unsold issues in his garage, stepping over them every time he needed his power drill. Charlie was unsure what to do with them, and even said they may go in a skip!
The good news is we have liberated these almost 40 year old time capsules of mountain biking, and they are now available once again.
Look at the pictures and you can figure out which cover belongs to which issue. Volume something, issue this or that… and then use the drop down menu.
