Fat Chance, an iconic bike brand of the 80’s and 90’s, just released the Chris Cross, a bike built for “all roads unpaved…”

Posted by Logan Watts

Designed, welded, and painted in the USA, Fat Chance claims their new mixed-terrain machine is “capable of crushing your local CX race or gravel grinding your way through the mountains and beyond”.

Built from a mix of Columbus and Reynolds 853 tubing, the Fat Chance Chris Cross features oversized chainstays and curved seatstays to allow ample room for 700x40c or 650b x 2.1” tires, the latter being what piqued my interest — with a ‘Yo Adventure Rigid’ steel battle axe, boss-encrusted fork.
