Surprised no one has done a Tomac Yeti/Giant as yet....


The Tomac Yeti has been done... one is in a museum in Germany, the other... I forget. Do an internet search for C-26.

I was thinking more of the yellow painted Yeti with Giant decals which he used in the mid 90s rather than the C-26.

I'd also add some of his DH machines to the list too.

Slightly off topic question though....

If you make a Tomac repilca are you expected to ride like the champ, or is riding like a hack acceptable?? ;)

Just bend deep, with your arms in a 90 degree angle and ride with you mouth open and look angy. :)

(By the way someone here in Holland is selling a blue Tioga bar for I guess it was 20 euro, very nice)

Neds M2 with disc drive (okay under another make, cycleworld 946 blah blah) full suntour xc pro, judy fsx would be a fairly easy, yet cool replica :)


That would be cool!


The Judy FSX would be a wrong fork for it. The M2 would need an original RS1 based Specialized FS or the latter FSX ('93 non-carbon version).
Ned used the M2 in 1991-1992 with Suntour XC Pro MicroDrive parts. I'm not really sure about the derailleurs in 1993 (XTR or XC Pro). For 1994 he used the Ultimate with XTR derailleurs, Gripshift X-rays, Avid brakes & TNT cranks. Fork was Mag21-spec FSX Carbon/ti and the same tension disc was used too. Can't say anything for sure for 1995 but I think he used the M2 again with Judy FSX & XTR.

This is a 1991 version:

I remember really drooling over this in 1992...lucky me that I have gotten even better: S-Works Carbon & Epic Ultimate... Still this would be a super nice replica!

And this a 1993:

As you can see, for 1993 he used Gripshift, Specialized DirectDrive cranks and Shimano 737 SPDs.


the 93 looks to be a one size smaller frame.

Henrik Djernis' fully rigid P22....

Would be nice to see someone pull that off, and it wouldn't be to difficult.


a 20in ritchey P21. 130 stem.
ritchey pro bikes may be the easiest to replicate cause ritchey built real race bikes. none of their riders had to shop elsewhere for performance.
