Tire Team Fat Chance 820Y2M

I just found this forum yesterday. I have a Team Fat Chance, Yo Eddy, in the team colors, pink, green, and purple. I am the original owner. Other than changing out the original cheap suspension fork, I left is as I bought it. The bike shop built it up with a mix of parts, Specialized crank and rims, Shimano Deore LX rear derailleur and Shimano pedals, Ritchey stem, saddle and seat post. It has GripShift which I prefer to the levers. I added the Salsa quick releases.

The following are links to pictures I just took. I'm thinking of selling it. If I decide to sell it, I'll post it on the For Sale area.

Very nice! I'd be interested if you decide to sell it. I don't check in here very often -- just dropped in now looking for a Ringle stem to replace the cracked one on my '94 Yo Eddy -- so if you post it for sale here and wouldn't mind letting me know by email, that would be great. I'd be getting it for my son, who has wanted mine for years.

They really don't get much better than the frame you got! Beautiful.

Thanks for the compliments. I've owned it for years but never rode it. I rode alot of other bikes, just not this one. I started out posting it here to see if there was any serious interest in it. I put it up for sale and it sold, pending funds. I replied to all PM's and emails. If the sale falls through, there is another person in line whom I promised to keep informed.
