One thing was clear to us when we brought the Yo Eddy back with KickStarter in 2015 – you want the Yo and you want it your way! So with this in mind, we’ve put together a program to give you as much customization as we can while keeping the essential feel of the Yo through it’s geometry, materials, tubing selection and design.
Pricing starts from $1799 for a single color Yo Eddy frame, read on for more details or click here to place a deposit, book a design consultation with Chris and start the ball rolling.
Every Yo starts with a design consultation by phone with Chris Chance. This is to talk through the various frame options, discuss sizing, pricing and agree on the final design.
Once your frame spec has been completed you will be mailed a blueprint sheet (yes a paper one, just like in the 90’s!) filled out and signed by Chris along with a few other items in our welcome pack.
After you have confirmed the final design, production starts, and from this date you can expect your new Yo Eddy in around 12 weeks.
The Yo Eddy has always been known for its legendary handling. Back in the early 1990’s it set new benchmarks for handling. Our newest generation delivers all the performance the Yo Eddy is known and loved for.
Chris has used his 30+ years of frame building expertise to put together a design that performs whether its a 27.5″ or 29″ wheel size, and this means a standard geometry for every Yo Eddy. Why change a winning formula?
Tubing selection is also an essential part of the feel of the frame. This starts with what we call the “chassis” of the frame; the gusseted downtube and non-tapering chainstays, which ensure superb performance, whatever riding conditions you throw at it.
While the geometry is set according to Chris’ own design, the many frame options are up to you and we let you customize the last detail of your new Yo to suit your style and riding conditions*.
Cable routing, dropper post options, single speed dropouts, Di2 routing and more are all down to your personal preference. This also includes rigid forks, which are available for both 27.5″ and 29″ frames.
* OK so there are limits to this.. Chris Chance has the final say as the custodian of all things Yo, to refuse anything which is too crazy, impossible to fabricate or not in the spirit of Yo Eddy!
Once you have approved Chris’ final design blueprint of your new Yo, our team of expert fabricators weld each Yo Eddy one by one.
By using a standard geometry and material selection we ensure that every Yo Eddy feels and rides just like the original. Chris’ own quality standards and build process are rigorous to ensure perfect frame alignment and finish every time.
Our KickStarter program saw some amazing custom paint schemes inspired by 90’s Fat City originals and we’re pleased to continue to offer these again.
The base price includes a standard single color paint option (from Grello, Team Purple, Black, Arrest Me Red and new Sapphire Blue) together with a hand crafted bronze head badge designed by custom jewelry artist and former Fat City employee Hoss Rogers.
We also offer painted stem options to match your frame from ENVE & Thomson, and can accommodate painted suspension forks (subject to an additional charge).
Once you’re frame is finished we offer a comprehensive range of component packages to complement your new Yo Eddy frame.
These include suspension fork options from FOX & Rock Shox, custom painted stems from ENVE & Thomson, and group sets, wheels and more from; Shimano, WTB, Praxis, Reynolds, SRAM, Ritchey.
All complete bikes are fully assembled by our expert mechanics prior to boxing up and shipping direct to you (USA only at this stage).
