+1 black rims, tyres or maybe sunset rims if you want that amazing evening light afterglow effect.


Thing is, quality Yo builds have been done a million times. Its hard to be original, best to just appreciate their amazing telepathic ride and the coolness that flows from them. Take it to a Hipster LBS hangout and watch as the bearded ones coo over it like a newborn, whilst sipping their ethically sourced Kopi Luwak.

With silver Bonty BCX / Weinman rims and tyres that are not volumous enough.... and a saddle with a bit too much downwards tilt!

I really don’t like the purple grafton crank caps so they will be removed next. Anyone want them let me know. Stupid Grafton price I’m afraid!

this qoute just so much need a re-tun: "Thing is, quality Yo builds have been done a million times.

Thanks for making my day with the stunning Yo builds and the icing on the cake with M-power hiting it spot on!

FAT history is interesting for a bike nerd. There are much copied designs and the sheer number of spin off companies, like Indi Fab, then derivative Firefly Bikes, who do some incredible in house designs and custom work. Firefly even hand lathe the butts on their Ti tubes as FAT City Cycles pioneered back in the early 90s. Im into all that sh1t and the stories of the crazy staff and good times. Anyway the OP has a great bike...enjoy :D

Prefer 3DV on yellow or grey frames but it still looks good.
