Hi,

Image

Yeti Treefrog. One of around 15 built. Bought it in 1991 and sold it when I was short of money in 1996. Really regret this. Would love to own this bike again, as I still have a soft spot for Trials bikes (and for classic Yetis ;)

Greetings,

Michael

Nice bike Michael,

Haven't really regretted selling any of my bikes, a kind of natural karma presents itself each time, what I do frown upon is the b@stard who nicked my 1989 Orange Clockwork, not quite sure if karma caught up with them though :roll:

Cheers

Rich

I regret selling my 91 Cinder Cone in cinder gold, XC LTD, small frame would make nice job of that if i still had it.
I had a 93 Lava Dome stolen whilst in dentists having fillings!
Still wish i had my M' Fox Courier, that was a good bike, U brake on back, still got the Sugino Oviod, rugby ball, chain rings and front wheel, chunky Araya rim still dead straight but worn.

I had an 88 Marin Palisades, I was young back then and wanted the best, so traded it up for a Saracen [how misled can a guy be..].. It was red with black forks, Exage Trail and a chainstay mounted U'ey.. So wish I had held onto it..

And Rich, I'm with you on the Karma thing, I had two Clockworks stolen.. One I'd had customed sprayed Fat green.. Fully rigid.. Full XT.. Perfect..

i've never sold a bike. I've had 2 stolen now. 04 cannondale jekyll i had for 2 months,and a 05 fisher cake4 dlx. luckily i kept my 95 c16, although with parts wearing out over the years theres not much original bike left.
i've just bought a pair of rond quake forks for it, and a front disk on its way its the best single track bike i've ever ridden.
