Yo Road Fork
First released in 1995 by Fat Chance, the Yo Road fork was the first segmented steel fork on the market and one of the lightest road forks of its day, fast forward 20 years and she is back with a vengeance!
The Yo Road fork has been updated to modern standards, handmade by frame building icon Chris Igleheart in Portland, OR. Igleheart has worked with Chris Chance, founder of Fat Chance since it’s birth in the early 80’s. The fork design has been updated to accommodate a 1 1/18 steer with laser cut top caps and struts. The struts themselves are expertly welded onto Reynolds 853 fork blades, providing the classic ride characteristics you’d expect from a lightweight steel fork.
Yo Road forks are available for purchase either a la cart, or with a Slim Chance road frame in 4 base color options (Black, White, Red, Yellow, Blue). Contact us for full custom paint offerings. While the fork was designed to work as a frameset with the Slim Chance, the Yo Eddy road fork is a great upgrade for any bike.
