Since I have already seen examples of the Fat Tire Flyer posted in this thread, here is an example of what the only mountain bike publication in the world looked like thirty years ago. It's in .pdf format, just so you know. Many of the ads you have seen here ran in my humble rag.
Surfing the web, I found a guy on EBay selling what he called a copy of the Fat Tire Flyer, but it is actually a copy of the MountainBikes catalog from about 1981. No link, but there is one day left on the auction.
I love this thread. I keep coming back to it and look at the pics and follow the links. It's so rich in mountain biking history
I'm fairly new to mtb so I have alot of catching up! Thanks for everyones contributions!
