Default Bro Eddy?

Saw this on the bay:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Fat-Chance-Bro-Eddy-Mountain-Bike-17-Med-EX-condition_W0QQitemZ110384280220QQcmdZViewItemQQptZ Mountain_Bikes?hash=item19b36a729c&_trksid=p3286.c 0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1205|66%3A2|65%3A12|39%3A1|24 0%3A1318|301%3A1|293%3A1|294%3A50

Never heard of a "Bro Eddy" before. Looks like it has Saratoga and Somerville decals.

First Flight has the serial number for a 99 Bro which is about 30 bikes later than this one, so I'm guessing it must be a 98 or 99. What distinguishes these from other fats?

"The Bro Eddy! is perfect for riders wanting a highly responsive, hand-build race frame with a more forgiving ride quality than the Yo Eddy. The Bro Eddy! features 16 3/4" chainstays and the craftsmanship and attention to detail for which Fat City is known. The Bro! also has the same suspension adjusted geometry as our Yo Eddy! which gives the bike great overall stability, superb handling in singletrack and excellent climbing capability."

Default Bro Eddy

basically a later version of the Buck Shaver (which replaced the Monster Fat).

the "lower price point" frame

It's a not so stiff Yo Eddy with similar geometry and smaller tube diameter, more like a Wicked Lite.. As rick says; the "nice price" frame.

This frame has the Yo Eddy decal on the top tubes right side, and the Eddy scull over the FCC decal on the head tube and behind the Bro Eddy decal on the top tube. I never saw a Bro in real so mabye this is original?? In addition there's a scull on the fork legs. A classical "find all the Eddys"...

Mabye the owner had a Yo decal set from Somerville and spiced it up with some of this..?
