About Fat Chance:

Founder Chris Chance launched his frame building career in 1977 building custom, one-off, made-to-measure lugged steel road bikes. Chris shifted his focus to mountain bikes in 1982 with Fat Chance. To say that Fat Chance and Fat City Cycles have a rich history is a huge understatement as they begin future projects in exploring personalities and tales that made Fat City Cycles / Fat Chance one of the iconic bike brands of the 80’s and 90’s.
