Everyone likes Old School and none more so than Retrobike and MorvÃ©lo Bicycle Apparel. Fat Tire Flyer was the original mountainbike magazine co-founded in 1980 by one of the pioneers of Mountain Biking Charlie Kelly. It’s pages contain 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 MorvÃ©lo 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 in the cover of the original for them 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 MorvÃ©lo’s customary high quality soft cotton tees and can be only be bought from their online store.
