Howdy Fatfans,I do appreciate the kind words. It still means a lot that you all think so much of what a bunch of passionate college kids and bike nuts could turn out under the crappiest of conditions. And if I can make you all giggle a little about went on, then all the better!!!
...I see, that we've similar passions! Unique I love your comparison to a classic Formula 1 car... ! I can really, really follow the "beat" you've specified:There were a lot of titanium retro mountainbikes made from various manufacturers but these Somerville made ones are by far the prettiest and of course they are amazing to ride. There are so many details on them like the finest works of art. It reminds me of looking at a classic Formula 1 car up close in a paddock at Goodwood, they just always make your heart skip a beat.
Fantastic !!! No wonder, that you've got gas in your blood!!! By the way... only eggcups can be made of carbonfiber - no doubt, mechanical art has to be made of steal, titanium, aluminium and soul... like bikes made by Chris Chance !100%…. Master welded Maserati Birdcage, Porsche 917. The days before everything was made of CF. My late father built and raced cars in the early 60s. We had March race cars in the garage in the 70s at home. When he fired the engine up in 5 mins there would be 500 people, kids and dogs all trying to force their way into the garage to look Crazy fun times. I used to love watching him weld tubing and fix things. I guess I never grew up
...exactly what I think - FAT CHANCE bicycles forever !!!I totally get it Its still surprises me that i feel the same enthusiasm for FAT CHANCE bicycles after so many years. They just feel like they are ALIVE.
...that would be absolutely fantastic - I'll keep my fingers crossed !!!I hope this damned pandemic ends soon and that I win the lottery so I can come to Europe again and meet up. That would be so much fun
Regards as always

The stories would be epic…..CC promised to skip the pond a few years ago but alas it never happened. Wonderful to see his new creations. It will make a change from looking at your pics on my 89 FAT poster.
