Jobst Brandt (1935-2015) was a California cyclist and engineer whose passion and intellect changed the way we ride bikes today. Years before the evolution of mountain bikes and gravel bikes, his legendary ‘Jobst rides’ took riders and their bikes to places they hadn’t gone before.

Over a period of half a century, Jobst regularly spent summers in the Alps, lightweight touring and adventuring over 2,000 miles each time, always carrying a camera to document his trip.

He was also the brilliant mind behind many innovations such as the bike computer and smooth tires, and he even influenced the birth of the mountain bike.

Our new JOBST BRANDT RIDE BIKE! book tells the story of his life and rides through unseen photos and original documents that detail his impact on cycling.

We have thousands of amazing pictures that will inspire your riding adventures, and testimonies from Tom Ritchey, Gary Fisher, Joe Breeze and others.
