Historic Magazine Archive

Brand New to the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame website is an archive of past issues of Mountain Bike Magazines and Fat Tire Flyers.

Mountain Bike Magazine was founded in Crested Butte, Colorado by Hank and Kimberly Barlow in 1985. It was sold to Rodale Press in 1988.

We've scanned in these issues page by page and put them here in PDF format for your viewing pleasure.

These files are pretty big, so they might take some time to download, but they are worth it.

To view these files you will need Adobe Reader.
The FAT TIRE FLYER started in 1980, almost accidentally, as a club newsletter published by Denise Caramagno and Charlie Kelly. The newsletter outlived the club by seven years, and until 1985 it was the only publication for mountain bikers. Charlie loved this magazine, and it was by far the most creative and artistic accomplishment he ever had. During the time the magazine was published, Charlie wrote much of it (using several names), took photos, handled the layout and the printing, edited submissions, accepted subscriptions and handled the mailing list. Publication ceased in 1987.
