I have a mint 1 1/8th BOI fork that I would like to swap for the same with a 1 inch steerer. It's the later suspension corrected length 420mm AtC. It's currently Green Metallica fade. It was sold to me a few years ago as NOS but on closer inspection it has had a wheel in the drop outs...
I have often wondered, as I'm sure many of you have, how a timeless classic would ride had it evolved over the years. The problem is how do you justify modifying said classic without destroying the very essence of what makes it a classic in the first place?
Late last year an opportunity arose to...
This week I had all my Fats in one place and as the sun was shining I took the opportunity to get some pics.
First up is a returnee. I sold this Sommerville built SAB last year but when the opportunity came to buy it back I jumped at the chance. This year it is wearing a...
I have realized that the Large Fat Chance Shock-a-Billy I have is a shade to big for me. Stand over is fine (same as a medium Yo) but the top tube is too long for me (23.5). Ideally I would like to swap for a Medium SAB but as they are not too common I will consider swaps for any S/M or M sized...
WTD- S/M or Medium Monster Fat frame only. Pref pink or lime green but anything considered. Might consider a full bike if price is right. Excellent condition only- no dings or rusty frames please.
Does anyone know where I can get replacement canti studs for my Yo fork and what size and thread pitch they are?? I have M10 and M8 in my tool box but neither will fit. The ones I have have all come from alloy suss forks and I guess are course thread.
I aquired this Fat late last year from my good friend in Amsterdam. I have made a few changes- swapped out the heavy Tange fork for a NOS Yo Eddy that turned up on eBay last month and changed the bars to a slightly wider Titec which came also from the Netherlands (cheers Roy!). I have just...
Time to out another of my old rides, this time its non Fat. Don't worry, normal service will be resumed as soon as I finish my SAB and Fat Ti.
This one is from a small UK builder not often heard of outside Europe from 1990 and has some interesting touches. One of the firsts on the RC100 was...
Urgently wanted- Shock-a-Billy in medium (ideal) or S/M. Prefer earlier AMP rear end and not fussy about which colour. Cosmetics are not really important but no cracks, rust or dents. I'm UK based but have friends in the US if shipping is a problem.
Got this one finished a few weeks ago and took it out on RetroBikes Peaks Ride for its first run. Troublefree as ever:D
Frame: 1991 Medium Fat City Yo Eddy
Fork: Fat City Big One Inch
Headset: Chris King Sotto Voce
Handlebar: Answer Hyperlight
Grips: Grab On MTN2
I need to put right a mistake. I should not have sold my old SAB so I'm looking for a S/M sized SAB frame with earlier polished AMP rear end. Pref team Violet, Auqa, charcoal or Chameleon but will consider anything.
Hi all from another newbie. Great site with some very nice FATs.
Thought I would introduce myself with my 1987 FAT CHANCE. This bike came from its original owner in LA and is 100% original apart from fresh paint as 22 years of use had left it looking very second hand.
This bike was originally...
