AVT staff member Kellan was lucky enough to get his hands on one of the first batch of new Fat Chance Chris Cross frames so he wasted no time in putting together this stunning build and PAINT! We're loving the local Oregon flavor on this one complete with Chris King headset and Rolf wheels. 

Here's what he had to say about it...

“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: 

  • White Industries G30 crank, with mismatched extractor bolts and White Industries BSA BB.
  • Chris King headset in Matte Slate; 
  • Thomson cockpit, including their new dirt drops; 
  • Brooks C15 saddle; 
  • Donnelly PDX tires, great for racing cx in the PNW; 
  • Rolf wheels were great to deal with being a semi-local company; 
  • Lastly I have always wanted a bike with Shimano Di2 so this was the perfect time. With a bit of a delay on the hydraulic calipers from Shimano the bike is photographed with TRP brakes for now.
