Just a couple pics of my '96 Hoo Koo e Koo. all stock except for the fork and wheels. There's almost a 10 mile long paved trail that i take my kids riding on now that my youngest knows how to ride. The wheels are great for coasting, they really keep your speed. Paid $700 new back then. What kind of VRCs do you guys own, and that you bought new?

Who ever fit you for that bike when you bought it wasn't doing their job.


Only bike I'm an original owner on is my 03 Ventana. Everything else is making up for lost time.

Original Owner

I'm the original owner of this 1988 Fat Chance (Although it wasn't my first Fat, which was a used '84 purchased in '86 and then stupidly sold in '88 :madman: )



For what it's worth, I'm also the original owner of this 1999/2000(?) Titanium Fat Chance:

I still have my HKEK that I bought new also. Paid about the same as you. Granted, mine is about nine years older.

Nice rides! Keeping in Rumpfy's theme though? You must have monster long femurs! Laybacks, and fully slammed, both!;)

My '94 Cinder Cone is the only bike I'm original owner of...It's latest configuration is single speed...I think the only original part left is the back rim...Bontrager BCX 1 or 2 or something...The front BCX folder over like a taco within the first couple weeks of owning the bike...

88 HKEK. gave it to my dad for ten years but it just sat in his garage. Like a bad penny it keeps coming back. Loaner bike with whatever parts are around and still work:





Of course the 90 AL26 Tandem. It's Semi retired now and living a new life with skinny tires:

I suppose it does look kind of weird with the seat down. It did sit a few inches higher, just much easier to help my five year old this way.

-fatmike- titainium fat chance is awesome!

Mostly used now for runs through the park with my dog.

I'm the 2nd owner of my Phoenix, but the first to build it up. Originally bought for the 1st owner's EX girlfriend, it sat unbuilt in a closet until I picked it up. Ain't love grand?

Here is a poor pic of my '91 as it stood a couple weeks back. I hope to have it riding by winter's end.

Already up: 952 series XTR v-brakes, Rody's Ho Down forks and some new bearings and collars, CK/Mavic Sunset wheels and a new 952 cassette, Sun-Ringle chainrings, HG90 chain, the original XT RD and a NOS XC Pro front, some old XC Compe pedals, and some new Ourys.

Waiting on: a new threadless headset and some spacers, cables+housing, and my making a decision about cranks.

This bike has been everywhere with me since jr. high. It'll be great to have it up and going geared again before I finally finish being a student sometime this spring!
