Checking my Facebook posts this morning, came across this update from MOMBAT.
MOMBAT? That short for the Museum of Mountain Bike Art & Technology. That's one museum I'd like to spent an afternoon visiting. It's housed at First Flight Bikes in North Carolina, and if I ever find myself in that part of the country, will drop in for sure.
Back to the update. Seems they're selling off a few of their vintage bike collection, and one caught my eye, being the Fat City fan. Fat City Cycles super expert I'm not, but know a fair amount about the history and models - as well as owning a '86 Fat Chance and '91 Yo Eddy - from back in the day.
Fat City bikes were all hand made in the U.S.A. First at their Somerville, MA location, then later via a joint venture with Serotta, in New York state. That's what I thought anyway...
