i thought the bars looked extra wide, but its hard to know for sure in the vid. id like to try some wider bars, but most are low rise. my back doesnt like being bent over like that for hours at a time. i had to go with a high(er) rise bar/stem combo. made a huge difference in how long i could play without ill effects.
i finially sold my rigid a few years back. got twice what i paid for it in the early 90's. apparently the fat chance bikes are a big hit over seas (austria). the bike had been run over by a full size chevy (i saw its front tire on the downtube), and the forks had been ground along the road. the forks ended up only being bent 2mm, so i just kept using them. the oldschool xtr axle took all the damage. frame was still 100% true. i disclosed this info on ebay, and the guy still wanted it
miss the bike for sure though. had a lot of good times on it.
while i made some good cash off that, it was nothing compared to what i made off my old bmx stuff. if youve got any, its worth an insane amount of cash these days. i cleared $499 bucks just for my old bmx action magazines!
oh and we did ride last saturday, but nothing crazy. just dinked around a state park checking out crazyass rock formations, insanely fit rock climbing girls butts in their spandex, and terrorizing local bullsnakes, lol.
