    Finally got around to putting together one of the bikes that I traded Fugsley for.

    It's a PHAT XC-3 3 speed chopper. Similar geometry to a Nirve Cannibal/Switchblade or an Electra Rat Fink, But I have to say that this one has a more comfortable ride than I got from either the Nirve or the Electra.

    The back wheel is freaking awesome looking and I love the flowing curves of this frame.

    I'm not a fan of the stock bars in their current position, but I'll have to work on the top plate before I can move them forward any. I am thinking baby apes will work better on this ride though.

    Nice ride! I had an XR-7 that rode very nice. I put a 26er banana seat on it that followed the line very well, looked great.

    Thanks Luke. It's definitely a curvy sexy bike.

    I'll have to try that. I was actually thinking of trying out my ramshorns.

    I love the look, but I feel like the bar position just isn't right.

    I may experiment with one of my nanners. I just don't want to detract the curvy rear end this girl has.

    I have a Felt flared fender I could try. The yellow paint actually has a little pearlescence to it.

    That might look good with that spoiler springer you have hanging around. :D

    I plan on trying it out on it. I almost scored a Phat springer this weekend, but the seller's girlfriend decided he couldn't sell the bike.

    Went on another Phat ride today. This bike is so smooth! I still need some different bars though.

    I am thinking about selling or parting out my PHAT XC03. If anyone is interested, make me an offer.
