Jeff’s Mountain Goat bicycles were one of the first hot names in custom mountain bikes. As a rider, racer, race promoter, designer, and manufacturer, Lindsay has continued to provide expertise for the technical development of mountain bikes.
Jeff began road racing in his early teens in 1962 as a junior racer. He and Gary Fisher were in this together, and their association found them years later developing bikes neck and neck. Starting with road frames in 1972, he progressed to mountain bikes in 1981.
Center clamp type stems, braze-ons, and socket type investment fork crowns with the Mountain Goat Logo were Jeff’s ideas for furthering the technological aspect of bike building.
