I liked the ride of the 18" YBB I had previously, but it was too large :roll: So now a 17" recently acquired with the help of Rob in the States :)

Plan was to build it up quite light. All parts weighed before assembly ;)

A few pics, not great quality though :?

Love the colour of these frames. I'd be tempted to sling a black SID on the front but still love it. Are Moots difficult and ££££ to get hold of?

Natural ti does look good :D

I know what you mean about a black SID, but I like the white with the black crown of the Magura and the SID would add over 200g to the weight ;)

They are quite rare in this country, probably because of the cost. The YBB frame new retails at £2750 :shock: - I didn't pay that much btw ;) :lol:
