Fat Chance debuts versatile new Yo Eddy 2.2

Fat Chance Bicycles has introduced a new take on a flagship, showing off the Yo Eddy 2.2 at the Sea Otter Classic.

The latest version of the Yo Eddy, the brand’s original trail hardtail which launched in 2015, uses a newly-designed CNC machined “demi-yoke” paired with Boost 148 rear axle spacing. This sleek design allows the rider to pick between a 27.5+ or 29er setup, with massive clearance for up to a 3.0” or 2.5” tire, respectively.

The Yo Eddy 2.2 also features a brand new thru-axle dropout and brake mount, moving the disc brake mount to the chainstay to keep the cable routing tidy.

Each frame is made-to-order, allowing a range of custom options including: paint, decals, cable routing & frame options, prior to shipping from the manufacturer in the USA.
