ASHLAND, Ore. (BRAIN) — Fat Chance Bicycles has released the Yo Eddy! Road Fork, now being made by frame builder Chris Igleheart.

First released in 1995 by Fat Chance, the Yo Eddy! has been updated to modern standards, including a 1 1/8-inch steerer with laser cut top caps and struts. The struts themselves are welded onto the fork blades. The blades are made of Reynolds 853 while the steerer is True Temper OX Platinum. The fork has clearance for 700x28mm tires. 

"Since relaunching Fat Chance, the Yo Eddy! Road Fork has been one of the most requested products," said Chris Chance, the owner of Fat Chance. "More riders are opting for bigger tire clearance and using their road bikes for more than just racing, and the fork speaks to those folks. It's a durable, light and responsive fork, that just looks downright awesome."

Igleheart and Chance worked together in the 1980s. "It's been a pleasure working with Igleheart again. We have a great history and he has been making forks for my bikes for decades."

Yo Eddy! Road Forks are available for purchase either a la carte or with a Slim Chance Road Frame. The forks will be offered in black, white, red, yellow, or blue and will retail for $600. Custom colors are also available.
