Gary Fisher and bikes for transportation

by Richard Masoner

Gary Fisher was in the UK over the weekend, so Carlton Reid caught up to him to talk about bikes for transportation.

Gary Fisher lives in San Francisco, where he’s a big supporter of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition. He uses a bicycle to get around. “I made myself a promise: I’m going to ride no matter what the weather condition and I’m going to pick everything up on a bike.” It’s great to hear about industry leaders like Fisher who use a bike for transportation, because that means they encounter and think about the practical issues that transportation cyclists face.

    Gary Fisher whose success is based upon his total belief in the product and is willing to put his own skin in the game. He is my idea of a true executive; one who executes their vision and lives with the results. Quite different from the executive profile that fails miserably and still demands a bonus.

    Just got the call from my local bike shop about my Simple City front bike rack to go on one of my existing bikes, can’t wait to put it on! Maybe someday soon I’ll be able to buy a Simple City bike, too.

    I hope this tweed fashion fad goes away very soon.

    I was just in San Fran for a conference…what a great bike town. Made me want to ride even more. And made me wish the weather in NH was more like the Bay Area.

    I also saw that Gary Fisher posted a comment in response to a recent NY Times article about the cost of owning a car. There are about 150+ comments, and, as could be imagined, there’s a rather vitriolic debate between bike commuters and car lovers. Of course, I guess anyone could post a comment under the name “Gary Fisher,” but I’d like to think it was him. Check it out.

    I just love his outfit! Where did he get it? I wish the knickerbocker suit look would make a comeback.

    Fisher had it made. There’s reflective stitching in it that’s pretty cool.
