I listened to an audio interview of Gary Fisher today. It is about an hour long and worth checking out. He talks about his early years, racing road bikes, cyclocross and how he and his riding buds started to build “klunkerz” that became the first mountain bikes. Fisher was one of the first to take this sport to the next level. Now he serves as “the inspirer” within the Gary Fisher company. He reveals the direction that “his” company is trying to take biking, as we look into the future.
The interview takes place in a noisy coffee shop and has a lengthy musical intro, but once you get into it, I think that you will enjoy it too. Click the link below to the MP3 file, or subscribe to the bikescape podcast in iTunes.

I’d like to check out the movie Klunkerz sometime too. Does anyone have it?
