FATTIC! Now that's a frame with a name. I used to ride with a guy who rode a fattic, and I saw a number of them when I worked as a wrench in Columbus Ohio. His specialty was small size super lite frames in Ishiwata tubing.

Nice stuff in my view. Would like to see his work again.

Hi everybody,

I too just got back from the interbike show and wanted to add a little more about the Rococo frame shown on Dale's interbike page at Cycles De Oro. The gentleman's name who built this lovely bike is Doug Fattic. A builder out of Michigan for the last 20yrs he always brings something very special to the show. The bike in the picture consisted of Hayden pressed blanks and an intricate center section that blended flawlessly. The seat lug had no external binder. Instead it used an expansion wedge activated by a small allen screw from underneath, very trick. Except for the Colnalgo booth and some cheap Italian offerings I saw a total of five lugged bikes in the whole show. Pretty pathetic, but that's life. It was nice to still see something so special. Took me out of my aluminum daze for a moment.
