Thank you to the fanatics, collectors, riders and owners. We thought a few enthusiasts might get excited about Fat Chance Bicycles returning to the market. However, we had no idea it would explode on FatCogs.com and social media before the any official announcements were made or the new website even launched. You caught us with our bike shorts down. Nice work!
Thank you to everyone who has provided feedback so far, I sincerely appreciate your input. Your comments really help validate my desire to bring Fat Chance back. It has been almost 15 years since we manufactured our last run of bikes, but the time has come to relaunch Fat Chance Bicycles. I feel some of my most creative ideas are still to come.
I am planning on producing a limited batch of our most popular bike, the Yo Eddy! I have decided to start by resurrecting an updated version of Yo Eddy for the fans and collectors who continue to share my passion for those bikes today.
I want to dedicate the first run of frames to the die hard Fat fans and engage you as a part of the design process for the first Fat 2.0 bike. Your input will influence what the first limited run of bikes will be. If you have not already shared your thoughts, please do so now.
For those of you trying to reach out to me, please send me an email via the form on our contact page. Things are getting crazy already, so I will get back to you as I can. Thank you again for your love and support, I am so excited to be back.
