For the fourth look into my bike garage I offer my newest bike, and the first retro MTB from the collection. This is a fairly standard Wicked Fat Chance from what may be the peak of their innovation in the early 1990s.

That is lovely, nicest one I've seen in a good while. When i first looked at the 'side-on' photo, I thought the rear wheel was bigger than the front! On closer inspection it is just the fact that the mismatched tyres have very different sidewall heights!

Wicked's are probably the nicest riding Fats of them all, everyone should have a Candy Wild Cherry in the garage too :wink:
