A special collaboration between Morvelo and Retrobike brings a Fat Tire Flyer t-shirt. For those that don’t know, Fat Tire Flyer was an original mountain bike magazine started in 1980 by one of mountain bikings pioneers Charlie Kelly. The actual print located on the front of the t-shirt is from the May-June 1984 issue, which is a pile of bikes that usually occurred in the April Derby’s in Marin County.

At this point, Morvelo and Retrobike reached out to Charlie Kelly, who ok’d the project and took it a step further by scanning the original cover art. While most would work out a financial deal, Charlie just asked for a free t-shirt. Limited to 100 t-shirts, which are made of soft cotton, and can be purchased from Morvelo’s stand at Mountain Mayhem.
