Where It All Began– Klunking

   Words by Waller

Klunking … you either don’t have a clue what I’m on about or you haven’t heard that word in a few years. Klunking is the origin of mountain biking and it mainly took place in the 60’s and 70’s in Marin County, California. If that definition isn’t good enough then maybe Waynes World’s lost character’s definition may suit you more, “Klunking is muddy in the Winter and dusty in the summer”.

Once upon a time there was no suspension, disc brakes or carbon tubing, it was just a rad old Klunker shredding down some dusty fire roads. The Klunker doesn’t consist of much, it’s just a rigid, steel bike with silly bars. These trusty steeds took the brunt of the riding whilst the rider held on for their life. The old video below is something I stumbled on whilst browsing the web and it does not disappoint. A truly hilarious video that shows Mountain Biking very different from the sport we know today. As the Klunker saying goes, “Klunking is best away from the cops, the cars and the concrete”.

It seems that it has a lot of crashes and stylish corner taking. There is a drift overload in this video, and with great drifts…comes great responsibility so what better way to stay on track that go foot out, flat out. At Working Class Heroes four of us ride two wheelers, but not one of us rides a Klunker. Fill your Hip Flask up and go ride!
