Yesterday whilst out I saw a nice Ti bike, Ti frame and forks etc. It had a short seattube section where the top tube and seatstays attached but then a long unsupported section above that I guess at least 6" long. On looking closer I saw a yeti headtube badge.
I've not seen this on yeti's before so I was wondering if it was a genuine Yeti Ti or something rebadged as a Yeti?
Ta.

Only a small handful had the customary "loopstay" bend. The regular production versions had super-gucci machined loop like this:

Actually i think I know what you mean, sure I've seen some sort of optional seat tube extender thingy on a Yeti before, actually looks pretty ugly in my opinion.
