    Brake for Kicker - Under Chainstay

    Suntour made roller cam brakes as well and they are much less expensive than the WTB version. There are two versions of the Suntour brake, one uses linear springs like WTB and the other uses coil springs (multiple models use this design). The linear spring version is more expensive and...

    Wicket Fat Chance Mountain Bike - Deore XT

    I love the paint on this bike. If I didn't already own a Wicked in this size, I'd be buying this one. :)

    Latest FAT Ti review.

    What's the story on the TI frames? Are they going to be produced? I've been looking at Ti hardtails for a few months and woudl love to see what Chris has to offer. Currently I've not seen a production frame that checks all of my boxes and the only option that I really see is custom. Lynskey...

    new Fat Chance jerseys

    I ordered one one of the new "reverse" Yo Eddy jerseys from the new Fat Chance. I ordered an "XL" and it's a little large for me. Any of you happen to have a "L" and find it a bit tight? Want to trade? :) Mine has been tried on, but not worn or washed. Still has the tags on it.

    yet another Ti Fat

    Who welded the NY Fats?

    When Fat moved to NY, were the guys that welded the frame the same guys that welded Serrota frames? or were there employees hired specicically for Fat frames? Who were they and how'd they get up to speed so fast?

    '93 Yo! Fork

    Would a '93 Yo! Eddy frame be suspension corrected or not? It feels like the head tube angle is slacker than I'd have expected on my Yo. I measured the fork to crown on the Yo! Eddy fork that is on it and it's right at 41cm, which would seem to me is suspension corrected. Is a '93 frame built...

    10th Anniversary Geometry

    Did the 10th Anniversary frames share the geometry with the Wicked or the "Yo!"? First Flight lists it as being made of OX-III tubing, but does not give frame angles, and I don't see the bike listed in the '92 catalog. My assumption is that it's a lighter version of the "Yo!." Am I correct...
