The birth of mountain biking is often attributed to Marin County, California, and a ragtag group of riders who started racing modified Schwinns down the dirt roads of Mt. Tamalpais. At around the same time in the mid-1970s, another spark in mountain biking's evolution burst into a flame. 
"Born From Junk" is a documentary short film that captures Crested Butte, Colorado's side of the origin story, as told by the characters who built the bikes and pioneered the rides.
