Everyone likes old school and none more so than Retrobike and Morvélo Bicycle Apparel.
Fat Tire Flyer was the original mountain bike magazine co-founded in 1980 by one of the pioneers of Mountain Biking, Charlie Kelly. Its pages contained classic imagery of early off-road action and this cover from May/June 1984, a bike pile after one of the customary early April “Derby’s” in Marin County, sums up the care free and fun loving attitude of the time.
Retrobike and Morvélo liked it some much they got in contact with Charlie Kelly to see if they could run a limited edition t-shirt of it. Not only did he say yes, but he also re-scanned the cover of the original to use. His fee? “Just make sure you send me one of the t-shirts!” he said. Still a legend.
Just 100 of the t-shirts have been hand-printed onto Morvélo’s customary high quality soft cotton tees and can be only be bought from their online store (www.morvelo.com/store) after Mountain Mayhem. If you can’t wait until then you will be able to buy them at Mountain Mayhem on the Morvélo stand.
