Man. Good to be a master marketer!

Gary Fisher invented mountain biking? Yeah. And Troy Rarick invented Fruita. Just like Al Gore invented the internet. Sheesh.

None of them invented squat. All they did was strike gold at marketing. And even that wasn’t necessarily their fault.

I haven’t read the book yet, but BikeRumor seems sloppy with the “co-inventor of the mountain bike” description. Gary Fisher co-founded the company called MountainBikes, with Charlie Kelly in 1979.

Well, if they were marketing is as a movie the tag line would be “Based on a true story.” At best.

His version of his achievements is inflated, if we’re being *very* generous.

“The birth of mountain biking and one of cycling’s most iconic brands”

If the brand was so iconic it would not have been killed by Trek.

since it is being pedaled (pun intended) by trek, you know their marketing is going to be 100% accurate and not misleading in the slightest. /s
