We liked the first casual wear we saw from new brand Morvélo Bicycle Apparel and now they’ve teamed up with Retrobike to produce this limited edition T-shirt.
Just 100 hand-printed tees will be made, and they can only be bought at next weekend’s Mountain Mayhem enduro or from Morvélo’s online store after the event.
Here’s what Morvélo co-founder Oli Pepper had to say: “Fat Tire Flyer was the original mountain bike 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 “Derbys” in Marin County – sums up the carefree 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 in the cover of the original for them to use. His fee? “Just make sure you send me one of the T-shirts!” Still a legend.”
