Back in August we profiled this Fat Chance Chris Cross that belongs to AVT staffer Kellan. It's just such a cool and unique bike that we felt that we just had to include it in our 12 Bling Builds of Xmas series! This is a Fat Chance unlike any other, with its wild Land Shark paint job and precisely eclectic parts kit that ties into the paint perfectly.
Here's what he had to say about it (from the original post)...
“I wanted something unique so for paint I reached out to Sara Slawta (Land Shark) and told her I really like the Stickman from Fat City Cycles back in the day, but to surprise me, with the caveat that I'm not the biggest fan of the color pink.
After I saw how great the frame looked I reached out to ESI who have made custom grips for me before and told them to come up with something wild to keep with the theme.
Rounding out the build I went with parts I know always work:
This weeks wheel build of the week features another great pair of Boost MTB wheels built around the Whisky parts No 9 36W carbon rim. The Whisky rims are a modern carbon all-mountain / trail rim featuring a 30mm internal width designed to run tires in the 2.3 to 2.6 range. That makes these rims a great value for money alternative to other more expensive rims from IBIS, Santa Cruz or Zipp.
Wheel build of the week is back with this stunning Enduro / Trail wheelset featuring ENVE M730 carbon rims laced to ONYX hubs. While this is not a combination we see very often in our custom wheel dept, it's a great example of a bespoke build thats perfectly suited to its intended use.
