not sure what year that is. It's the major players of the scene, but the scene is well established by then, an institution--even though everyone still has their skinny hippie bodies. Fisher is an interesting, charismatic cat. mw
That is a cool vid. I learned about mountain bikes in about 1979 or 1980 and saw my first one(s) in Taos in 1981. Everything changed for me then. I raced mtn bikes when I was younger/faster, but mostly I like just riding and exploring. There's a whole new crop of guys in the Gila now, but I was one of the pioneer guys there 25 years ago. I go poking around looking for routes and describing them and naming some of them. I've always enjoyed getting away from pavement (I was a CJ-5 owner first) so I guess that's the appeal for me.In that vid, Fisher already is describing his business plan. Cool!
I,m glad I still have my ol' fish. Great bike!
Filmed in January 1979.
