The Slim Chance

Chris Chance cut his frame building teeth making custom road frames way back in 1977, and over the years he learned a thing or two about making the perfect road frame. By 1991, Chris took everything he’d learned from making mountain bikes at Fat City and applied it to a new generation of road bike.

The result was the original Slim Chance which set a new benchmark for steel road bikes as one of the very first production TIG welded road frames.

The Slim Chance 2.0 delivers on decades of insight and delivers a lively ride that still courses with energy. It features optional disc brake mounts and an Enve fork standard and will be produced in small batches.
