As some of you know I now have a 93 Yeti ARC frame.
I didnt come with the little wheel for the front mech...
does anyone have one...not much chance of that I guess?
I need to see what it looks like otherwise so I can get one made up so
if someone can get some pics it would be cool.
Also does anyone have pics of this frame built up or being riden to give me some inspiration for componants etc?
Cheers Jon

If you don't get a better offer, will take a picture this weekend for you

oh, or try Evolution Imports / BromleyBike.com - they must be able to dig one out for you

Worst case scenario, get the dimensions from kestonion and get one machined. It wouldnt cost too much.

I take it the wheel allows you to use bottom pull right?

Find yourself an old Avid Rollamagic and take the wheel off it, its a sealled bearing alloy wheel thats exactly the same as the yeti one (just don't go for the newer one thats made of plastic)

considered trying a top pull front mech on there? if the cable angle exiting the cable guide isnt too severe it'll work. I've had both yetis & FATs with that cable pulley & to be honest they're sh.te! mud & crap lands on the pulley turning in into a mini cam.

Or take the wheel off this - supposed to do the very job!
