You get a feel for Gary's personality and willingness to share information in the film. Gary gives an overview of the bicycle industry and admits he just threw out 100 years of bicycle design and started over with his Evolution 1 1/4" Headset and oversized components. This was a year before suspension forks and Gary had just ridden the first RockShox and talks about it. Fisher was inducted into the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame in 1988.
