The Michigan Mountain Biking Association (MMBA) is selling limited edition bike jerseys custom designed by Frazz comic strip creator and cartoonist Jef Mallett. We wanted to develop a fun and unique MMBA jersey, says Bill Mayer, MMBA Vice President. Having a Frazz theme was our first choice because we are all big fans of the comic strip and we share Frazzs enthusiasm for cycling.
These are the first ever Frazz jerseys and the MMBAs license allows only a limited number to be printed. The jerseys are available in mens and womens cuts and various sizes. They are manufactured by Voler. When theyre gone, theyre gone! adds Mayer.
Jef Mallett draws Frazz from his home office in Lansing, Michigan and was the first to own the jersey. He saw this as an opportunity to give something back to the mountain biking trails. Its no secret that cartoonists live life through their characters, says Mallet. Through Frazz I can ride trails I normally cant. And likewise, without the MMBA, Id have even fewer opportunities to ride.
Dedicated Frazz comic strip readers may note that Frazz has ridden his mountain bike on Michigan trails such as Yankee Springs and Pontiac Lake, both of which were built and maintained by the MMBA.
The Frazz jerseys are available at www.mmba.org/frazz.
