DVD about the birth and growth of mountain bikes. In the late 1960's and early 1970's a handful of hippie cyclists literally reinvented the wheel. These early pioneers scavenged frames from dumpsters and junkyards, lifted parts from road bikes and motorcycles to build a better way down the mountain. Little did they realize that their obsessive tinkering would ultimately lead to the birth of a multi-billion dollar industry and an Olympic sport. These modified biked became affectionately known as "Klunkerz". For anyone who loves the sport and wants a taste of the history, personality, and spirit of the first mountain bikers from back in the day, this DVD will be extremely entertaining and informative. Great footage never before seen anywhere.
