Default HI! (Indy contents)

Hi, I'm new here. Ive been lusting after FAT since 1992, unfortunately I've never had one.

I decided to make up for this lack getting this IF 1998 painted in this team lavender-like hue.

Gotta change some parts, tho: I've thrown what I've found on it....

The original idea was to build a bike summing up all my young age passions: a steel bike with Fat traits, but more modern to handle a 80mm fork. Having already a custom alu FTW 29er, the violet bike was supposed to be ridden occasionally. Yeah.

I've fallen in love. Getting to ride 29er is getting more and more difficult. I get changed, open the garage, head to the polished alu beast, and then see this lavender steel beauty....

BTW, I'm going to add a White Industries or an AC crankset. This Truvative is offensive!

Hi, here is my Indy "Fat". I had the same idea as you. But I wanted a titanium bike with Fat Chance roots. Modern Shimano XTR components, combined with a 80mm Fox fork. For me, the real development of the old Fat Chance bikes. I'm really excited about this bike and I wish you much fun with your lavender Indy.
Regards Helmut

Very nice. The color choice is great.

Team lavender has always been my fave one. And the crappy pic doesn't render it justice
