first of all thanks to Northern Dave for this frame
i have wanted a Fat for quite a while, to a certain extent i was scared to get one though, the name in the range that always pops up is "yo eddy" and the price tags all make my wallet shudder with fear. also, what if i don't like the way they ride? 500 quid on a Yo to then not like it would have been regrettable to say the least!
the good thing about buying some of the bikes i have over the last few years is that if you buy it and then don't like it they didn't cost a fortune in the first place! so you can move them on without feeling you have lost a fortune and sometimes if you are lucky you make a bit back.
when this Fat was advertised i thought this would be the ideal compromise, not daft money but still a Fat! which i assume was also the original idea behind the Buck Shaver anyway
i haven't decided exactly what to build this with yet, i have some m900 available but it seems wrong for a frame that was aimed at being value for money, so i might go for 8 speed xt m739 but with a few tweaks here and there, what parts are in the garage will also play a part though!
anyway here's some pics
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life.
