I'd Rather Be Klunking: Sports Water Bottle - White, 13.5oz

If you've ever wondered, where exactly mountain bikes came from and how they became a new American pastime. legend has it the inventor of the mountain bike was John Finely Scott, who rigged up a fat tire single speed bike around 1953, and rode it across the Sierra Nevada's. History also records the cycling enthusiasts of Northern California's Marin County, who rode modified pre-WWII bicycles down the slopes of Mount Tamalpais in the 1960s. Developing their bikes through rigorous field-testing, they risked life and limb to do create the new sport.

Their early bikes were scavenged from dumpsters and junkyards. It was from these humble beginnings that a multi-billion dollar industry, a form of recreation for the masses, and an Olympic event, were born. These hefty steeds were affectionately known as Klunkerz.

All of them, at any time, would rather be klunking. Their collective contribution to the sport is recognized here in a design by award-winning artist Chuck Baum.
