Stumpjumper 25th Anniversary

$14.95

The Stumpjumper was the first mass-produced, commercially made mountain bike by a major manufacturer, Specialized Bicycle Components. This book chronicles its creation story and the first twenty-five years of production.

Since its appearance, the bicycling world has been revolutionized. A whole new culture has sprung up— the fat-tire, dirt-loving mountain bike adventurers, rejecting the orthodoxy of the road, bringing their counter-cultural attitude and look to the American masses.

This full-color history of the mountain bike celebrates all aspects of off-road cycling, from the early experimental “clunkers” to the first Stumpjumper to the modern technological marvels replete with carbon-fiber frames, front and rear shock absorbers, and twenty-one (or more) speeds; from the scruffy daredevil pioneers of the sport to today’s well-sponsored professional riders. Nowadays every kid rides a mountain bike. And there’s a Stumpjumper on display at the Smithsonian and at the Marin Museum of Bicycling. It’s all here, as told by the folks at Specialized, in this photo-rich coffee table book.

A sad day for cycling, a legend amongst us has passed on. For 46 years Tony Tom and his "A Bicycle Odyssey" shop in Sausalito, California offered cycling fanatics the finest from around the world.

Join us on December 12th for a memorial ride around Paradise Drive in Tiburon. Meet at Dunphy Park across from A Bicycle Odyssey and be ready to leave at 10:00am. A celebration of Tony's life will follow afterwards back at the park. There's a new gofundme campaign to care for his mom Ruby and if you would like to contribute the link will appear after you sign up below.
