I'm ready for a "production" Yo when they are available.

Frame developments should be interesting, but so far so good!

The red one is almost perfect. I really like the Yo Eddy 27.5 fork and the tapered headtube. Vintage meets modern.

Anyone know if Rob Ives is welding on these? I believe he still welds for Ventanna. I have one of his frames; it's awesome.

Why the 27fiver Yo has a tapered head tube but not the 29er? any technical reasons behind it?

The tapered head tub and the rigid fork don't look in proportion, Yes blending the Retro look with the new standrd they might have looked at upsizing the fork legs to get a better proportional look as the BOI or Yo forks were closer ot the head tube sizes, just my opinion. But over all a decent looking setup.

This is what I read. Seems 27.5 suspension forks are readily available with tapered steerer tubes.

Thumbs Up Ready in 2016...

Hi Fat-Fans,

I'm also highly interested in a 27fiver production frame (size S & grello coloured) in 2016. I think I'll pefer a suspension fork...
a fun-making combination with the dropper post !



I really, really hope that the exchange rate ($/EUR) will make the frames payable for FatCogs from Europe... !

At the moment it's expensive...

Here you'll find a nice article about the NAHABS 2015.

Cheers,
Daniel
