1999 Specialized Fatgirl

1999 Specialized Fatgirl

I Like Big Butts and I Cannot Lie - Lovely Mint Fatgirl

Like New Condition - all original parts
I took of the included kickstand, but left the chain guard and reflectors on there.
I also added some generic black chain tensioners, mostly to protect the rear drop-out paint.
 
NOTE - Mods, please don't change the date.  This is a 1999.  They only made this for ONE year -1999.
Yes, the serial number on the frame may have a late 1998 build date, but it would still be the 1999 model year.
Half of the other Specialized bikes listed in the museum are listed under the wrong year.  Feel free to update those.

Stuff I want: 2000 24" DB Reactor Team frame ,  Voxom and Enigma stuff. Alliant / Radix stem and stuff.  JW and Stiffys stuff.  Cool late mid-school cruiser parts.

Re: 1999 Specialized Fatgirl

Hey there,

I just picked up one of these for my daughter who needed a 20" bike (graduated from a 16").  The cranks are 170's, though, and too long for her.  I want to replace them with shorter ones.  We have a used bike "junkyard" nearby and was wondering if I can salvage shorter cranks from a traditional kids bike and install them on the Fatgirl.  I'm a BMX newbie, so don't know if the bottom bracket is standard enough to do this.  I do know that this bike, and most other standard kids bikes have one-piece ("ashtabula") cranks, just don't know how interchangeable they are.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Re: 1999 Specialized Fatgirl

I think I have a shorter set too - which are also much lighter.

Want me to send this one along instead of the 180 strong arms that would have come on here?
Even swap in my book -assuming you are the one who bought my other Fatgirl.

Re: 1999 Specialized Fatgirl

I didn't buy from you, got it off craigslist.  Also, I don't need cranks, was able to find shorter ones in the bike "junkyard" nearby.   I still need original handlebars, though, if you have those.  Can't find them local.
