Default 1988 Wicked FAT CHANCE

Twenty years ago...

I am still riding my 1988 Wicked FAT CHANCE.

In 2000 I had it re-painted at CyclArt in San Diego. Then I re-built it with full XTR components and Race Face cranks.

When I bought the bicycle it had BioPace chain rings (remember those?) and a bottom bracket U-brake. Still a great ride.

Where have the years gone?

I didn't know this website existed until yesterday when someone on the Dirt Rag forums told me about it.

I really miss the grass roots origin of our sport, and especially FAT CITY Cycles.

Is Chris Chance possibly on this website under and alias? Also, does anyone know what he is up to these days?

Thanks for the "heads up"! See you in the Dirt Rag forums!

By the way, I was NiceItalainBoy at Dirt Rag and I started the "I Miss Weed" thread. I decided to delete that thread and re-invent myself on that forum. I realized it was a big can of worms.

P.S. Don't tell anyone.
