Fat Chance Yo Eddy 69er Mullet

While walking P-Valley with the State's Land manager, James Beschele, I shot a bunch of pictures of this mountain biker coming down the red trail. It wasn't till I downloaded the pix and wanted to get a closer look at the bike that I noticed it was rigid. The next thing I noticed is that it looked like it had a bigger tire up front! What's this? A Fat Chance Yo Eddy 69er and mullet to boot - disc brake up front and a V-Brake in the rear.

I know this bike! I was talking to the owner earlier this year when I noticed another rigid riding brother. After checking his bike out, I noticed that he was running it mullet style with a Surly 1x1 fork, so I suggested that he put a 29er wheel on it because it will fit perfectly. Looks like he did it! I don't recall the owner's name but I think he lives in Trumbull.

Here is a sequence shot of him after crossing the stream.

I feel like I'm looking at that old Bigfoot footage...

Oh man, I thought for a second that Fat Chance was throwing their hat back into the ring.
