Wende Cragg was one of the first mountain bikers in the 1970s and she photographed much of her life around the bike races that she participated in.
Since mountain bikes evolved over time from pre-WWII cruiser bikes, it can be hard for people to remember when a certain part was made or when a particular race happened. By looking at this extensive collection of photographs, historians can say "oh in this photo they had part X and not part Y on their bike.”
While at UC Davis, Sarah McCullough pieced together this photographic history as part of her PhD in Cultural Studies.
