What about a living Yo Eddy in every Fat bike ? He talks to you, inspires you, talks about the spirit of the trails. A Fat with its own neural network which learns and adjusts its handling as you ride and makes you feel good about yourself. In steel and titanium please
I opted for 26" or 27,5"; trail or fat bike; steel and titanium.
Why is everybody in the states so convinced of 29"... in the 90s trekking bikes were for losers...
No, seriously - there should also be 26" wheels on FC bikes again, maybe as an option.
And I also reckon that the whole fat bike idea really fits the idea of rigid steel framed bikes with YoEddy genes.
Wrong path would be only making 29" titanium XC Bikes at astronomically high prices - where's the fun in that?

Hah. Sounds like something Shimano would try to do.
The 29" wheel size suits west coast (USA) riding quite well, especially open desert chunk riding.
...so cool, I think one and the same... maybe I'm to old for 650B & 29" in the meantime...in the 90s trekking bikes were for losers...
Correction - the article on Firefly is the Tube and Pipe Journal
I wish I could just pull up stakes and head out to CA and knock on his door unannounced, much as I did in November 1986. At this point, I could only do it as a hobby. I have some great memories of Fat City and some not-so-great, and I love being able to stay in contact through this fun website. It blows me away at how much you all love the bikes that we sweated over, bled on, and gave every ounce of our energy to produce. It really is an honor. I hope this version of Fat City is successful beyond his wildest dreams
I heard somewhere that Chris had been learning how to build carbon frames from Craig Calfee. I voted for race xc, steel or carbon, and either 26" or 650b. I think a fat chance fat bike would be cool but I'd save a different model for that, perhaps a monster fat or simply a "fat" chance.
...I need some new shirts
...me too! And a new steal- or titanium-frame made by CC! Please, please no Carbon... because everybody is doing that today! I really hope for "happy bikes for happy people", like in the special Somerville times . Simply timeless bikes with soul...
...we want it now! Please
