    Wasn’t that long ago they did their first reissue?

    ‘Cliche alert’ that Yo Eddy is the first bike in a very long time that would tempt me to get my wallet out.

    Unfortunately I couldn’t afford one when they originally came out either!

    I coulødn’t , but still bought the one in Cov Garden cycles circa 91, 92, and it was a big change from my Dynatech!

    Really liked it, like a giant BMX, grello with purple tips, including the Big One Inch forks. I think it had previously been the display bike at interbike. Really high quality all the way from the welds to the design details to the paint 🙂

    Yeah, they’ve been back a fair few years now and the Yo has had a couple of versions. I had a retro Yo last year and it was a beautifully built thing. Even the fade on the paint was epic. If the new Yo had the Wicked geometry, or at least a little bit more modern I’s seriously consider saving up.

    Brilliant to see such brash colours return…

    Not really much of an add, the markets way more saturated than it was 15 years ago, and i’m guessing there’s no UK distributor, so those prices are going to get a bit more serious with everything added in!

    Fortunately I have a couple of Fats hanging about albeit just a tad older, but it’s great to see these and CC making bikes again.

    Oh Lordy. I first got introduced to mountain biking in the late 1990s. I got talked into a weekend “riding a bike” and there was a guy there with a Fat Chance in shades of iridescent blue and it was the dogs doodahs. I’m researching new hard tails…..
