Plans Are In The Works To Design And Build Limited Edition Yo Eddy
After a nearly fifteen year hiatus from the bike building scene, legendary bike builder Chris Chance is resurrecting Fat Chance Bicycles. Plans are currently in the works to bring back the Yo Eddy! The “Yo” rises out of the ashes as a beacon of hope for the leagues of Fat Chance devotees who, up until now, have only dreamed of seeing a new bike from Fat Chance.
Chris has launched a new website (http://www.fatchancebicycles.com) and is soliciting fan input on the design of an ultra limited run of Fat Chance “Yo Eddy” frames. Fat Fans are encouraged to visit the website and complete a brief survey to let Chris know what type of frame they would like built. Fan input will help determine the next Yo Eddy!
Is it steel, titanium, aluminum or carbon fiber construction? Does it have 26”, 27.5” or 29” wheels? Chris is soliciting input from fans, so cast a vote and help us deliver the Yo Eddy of your dreams!
The Yo Eddy is one of the most iconic and collectable mountain bikes of the 80’ and 90’s and continues to have a cult-like following today. Fat Chance fans have dreamed of a new bike for decades and it looks like those dreams may finally come true.
Keep an eye out for Chris Chance at upcoming bike industry events like Interbike (September 10-12, 2014), handmade bike shows and other cycling events where he will be gathering input from Fat Chance fans.
