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:

Here at AVT we have customers all around the world but occasionally we run into some much closer to home like Jordan who lives just down the road from us in Talent, Oregon.
After he bought a few parts from AVT we spotted his new bike being built up in a local bike shop and just had to shoot it for a Bling Build blog post as it's a pretty special and one off unique build with a strong Oregon / NorCal flavor!
A mid-fat set up using the Velocity Dually rim paired with White Industries XMR Boost hubs. The end result is a 100% made-in-USA wheelset designed for a very specific purpose in a high quality, strong and great looking package.
