Fat Cyclist Jerseys on the Rich and Famous

12.5.2008 | 1:21 pm

Check out Gary Fisher on his Thanksgiving day ride:


This is like getting a photo of Elvis wearing my jersey.

PS: I think I’m going to start growing that exact mustache.

PPS: Some people have been wondering how I got this photo. Well, Gary Fisher sent it to Travis Ott, and Travis sent it to me. By the way, in just a few weeks, you’re all going to find out that both misters Ott and Fisher are even cooler than you think. I’ll say no more. Nudge nudge, wink wink.

    Have you ever seen Elvis and Gary Fisher in the same place?


    Coincidence? I think not.

    Win Susan – That’s a pretty nice recognition of the cause!

    Looking good!

    Umm…I don’t recall Elvis ever having facial hair. Or being blonde.

    But that is pretty awesome to see him in an FC jersey!

    That’s pretty cool, He’s a cool guy already, but in a FC jersey, I think that about tops it off…

    You’ve got to send him a pair of the bibshorts to complete the outfit. The blue shorts just don’t do the FC jersey justice.

    that’s gary fisher’s dad.

    FC is famous!

    Awesome !!!

    Note to Elvis —

    FC jerseys come in plus sizes too.

    You can come out of hiding now.

    Sadly, that’s not Gary Fisher’s dad. And if the young pioneer of mountain bikes is now old then we are also nah,nah,nah.


    At least he has got that bold, “found at DI” sense of style:


    Still, way cool to see Gary sporting the jersey.

    Bikes and cake!

    Remember to grow the matching flavor saver with that mustache. It’s a matching set.


  15. Comment by Nancy | 12.5.2008 | 2:38 pm

    I was wondering what you call that thing on his chin. Flavor saver. I like it. (The name, not necessarily the thing…)

  16. Comment by KanyonKris | 12.5.2008 | 2:46 pm

    Clarification: DI (Deseret Industries) is a chain of local (mostly Utah) thrift stores.

    Team Fatty’s are EVERYWHERE!

    WIN Susan.

    PS – Gary rules!! Even without his glasses.

    Blue shorts SCHMORTZ! It is the Uncle Eddie white dickie that completes the outfit!

    Too Cool.

    Win Susan!!!

    That’s awesome.

  21. Comment by Rick S. | 12.5.2008 | 3:35 pm

    I’m so glad to see Gary following the rule. NEVER match your jersey with your shorts (unless you are on a road bike).

  22. Comment by Don | 12.5.2008 | 3:58 pm

    I hate to be rude, but the mustache is the flavor saver, the bottom lip is a soul patch…
    Lets keep our facial hair correct.

    It seems for some Internet Explorer users my first comment isn’t showing up, or it is but without the photo. Not sure what’s up with that. But if you want to see the photo of Gary:

    I wonder if Lance ever wears the FC T-shirt and Jersey I gave to him??????

  26. Comment by Tim | 12.5.2008 | 4:58 pm

    Please don’t grow a soul patch. You are too cool to do that to yourself.

    Also, I got one that’s a bit too big, so I plan on running a 10k this weekend in my fat cyclist jersey.

  27. Comment by BikeCopVT | 12.5.2008 | 5:16 pm

    Too cool for words. Next I want to see Bob Roll in one!

    Win Susan!
    Elden Won!

  28. Comment by Di | 12.5.2008 | 5:37 pm

    THAT is cool. I’m suddenly starting to feel the pressure to get a FC jersey. ;-)

  29. Comment by Andrea | 12.5.2008 | 5:39 pm

    How very cool!

  30. Comment by mburdge | 12.5.2008 | 6:01 pm

    Maybe you can work on Greg Lemond squeezing himself into one–you know, ironically, since he has made himself into Lance Armstrong’s archenemy….

  31. Comment by Buzz | 12.5.2008 | 6:23 pm

    And I think Lemond would actually qualify these days as a FC! Love Fisher, love the shorts, REALLY love the jersey. Wore mine to a spinning class last week, just for fun!

  32. Comment by kentucky joe | 12.5.2008 | 6:49 pm

    we should all start growing that exact mustache. (women excluded, of course)


  33. Comment by ricky | 12.5.2008 | 8:14 pm

    Eldon, you should give the photog a credit, someone worked hard for that shot. And I’m not thinking of Gary.

  35. Comment by Marla | 12.5.2008 | 9:47 pm

    Love the photo. Almost didn’t recognize him without the glasses.

  36. Comment by TCR Dave | 12.5.2008 | 9:59 pm

    that is beyond cool…I can now say I know someone famous who knows a world famous blogger that has the same jersey as me!

    i’m so lame…

    You rock Fatty
    All my best to you and your family

    i met elvis in 71 and beleive me son that aint elvis…..win susan

  38. Comment by Big Boned | 12.6.2008 | 5:14 am

    I met Elvis last week – he complained that there wasn’t a fatcyclist jersey big enough for him….and I think he was right.
    If anyone else wants to meet the king, he’s working with an alien in a 7-11 in Roswell, NM. Previous to that meeting I thought all those people who believed in aliens were nuts!

    I think he looks more like Gary Glitter with that facial hair, not really a desirable look.

  40. Comment by Hot Lap | 12.7.2008 | 10:30 am

    Any idea on why Fish and Travis Ott are cooler than we thought? Could it have anything to do with a certain carbon, un-geared 29′er?

    [...] and gentlemen, please put your hands together for Gary Fisher Bikes, and for Travis Ott, who is not just a great brand manager but also a really great [...]
