Released several years ago, Klunkerz, a documentary about the roots of mountain biking, is drawing renewed attention. The film, written, produced and directed by William (Billy) Savage, follows mountain bike’s “legends” while exploring the foundation and growth of the sport. Elemental in this history, is Tom Ritchey.
In a recent review of this film, Tim Jackson (Masi Guy), wrote,
“I've always been a huge fan of Tom Ritchey and his bikes and components, but this movie certainly added to that. Hearing guys like Joe Breeze, Gary Fisher, Mike Sinyard and others rave about his genius and craftsmanship was very touching.”
The film has overall garnered positive review. Check it out to see and hear more about Tom Ritchey’s key role in the formation and growth of mountain biking as a sport.
