Killer ride! Jealous! However, maybe it is just because I am from the US, but I've never been crazy about the look of Pace forks. The reversed brace takes away from the clean lines of forks/frame. Anyway...enjoy! To each his own!

Beautiful!

Pace forks, black rims and skinwalls are winners on a Ti Fat, but I prefer the brakes mounted on the front of the forks for aesthetics. With V's they work great front-mounted too.

Does that frame fit you with the seat post so high? Very nice build.

I say no it doesn't fit him - and he should sell it to me immediately for being so size negligent.

Nice bike - ride on. I really really want this bike.

By 1994, I had finally figured out titanium welding and believe that the 1994 models represent the best of what I could do with a TIG torch on that metal. I probably welded most, if not all of the 94s since Dave Blakeney had left by then. I was teaching Sue Kirby how to weld TI but I don't remember if she welded any frames. I know I had her doing some subassemblies like head tube and seat tube inserts using my little rotary set up. I am proudest of those frames out of all the work I did at FC with the Yo Team bikes and the Team Comps running a close second and third.

Treat her kindly my good man, she's a keeper! (or keepah -as we say here in Mass)

Enjoy the ride
Scott

It's nice to know someone from the Massachusetts Fat Chance factory is on here, it's a shame Chris Chance moved location, I'm sure if he had stayed in Massachusetts and not moved to New York, Fat Chance would still be going today.
I feel the best Fat's came out of Massachusetts, the frame quality build was exceptional.

Regards Michael
