Was thinking on bidding for this but wanted to first check whether it really is an arc. Can't find an arc pic with matching graphics. I know there was a cheaper ali fro around at that time, don't want a re-stickered one of those.

Would have preferred an earlier one but they don't seem to pop up often, especially in one piece.

Hi,
Im not in the position to buy, but i have that on my watch list.
Although the seller says it is all original decals/paint etc..., its the steerer tube that throws me, with its strengthening.
I always thought the early arc's just had a plain tube there.

Im thinking this is a fro, check this link.

http://forums.mtbr.com/yeti/yeti-f-r-o- ... 23167.html

It has 'fro on the seat stays, in the same place as on the arc ? for sale..

May be im wrong and it is an arc, saying that it looks fantastic..

I did think about the kokopeli, but the back end on them is 4 pieces..

Any way, hope ive helped.

Martin

That was my initial thought too which is why I queried it. Also it has no tubing sticker on the seat tube. Prefer the earlier graphics but as long as it really is an arc then I could make do :wink:

Thanks for that, just found this pic too, only obvious difference is the position of the front cable guides compared to the sticker. But it does look promising.

I wish i had the money :(

The seller has really good feedback and after doing a bit of research, i would say its genuine..

I think you should go for it......
