The Fat Chance Chris Cross
The Chris Cross is an incredibly versatile machine, equally capable of crushing your local CX race, tackling long summer gravel rides and bike packing trips, or fitting fenders for mixed terrain winter training. Adaptable and lightweight, with Chris Chance’s signature handling, it’s designed to keep you grinning with dirt in your teeth, on whatever terrain you shred.
The Chris Cross is handcrafted here in the USA, from a mix of Columbus and Reynolds 853 tubing. It features a custom tapered 34/44 head tube to fit a variety of fork sizes including the Enve Gravel Disc fork standard, or choose the steel Yo CX fork. Built right here in the Fat Laboratory, and based on the design of the legendary Yo Eddy mountain bike fork, the Yo CX fork comes equipped with a host of braze-ons for additional water bottles, front porteur rack or fenders.
Ovalized chainstays and curved seat stays give the Chris Cross some big tire clearance for anything up to 44mm in the 700c range and up through 2.1” in the 650b mountain bike tires (using the ENVE fork). We use the same modular down tube cable routing that we use on the Yo Eddy to give flexibility to run 2 or 3 cables depending on whether you use a 1x or 2x set up, or even a dropper post! (Optional seat tube slot)
Our rear dropouts are equipped with 2 different alloy inserts, one with fender mounts, one without. Combined with the subtle chainstay and seat stay bridge fender mounts we wanted to ensure easy fender mounting, while keeping the frame lines super clean and simple without them.
Whatever your next adventure… Chris Cross it off your list with this bike!
