That is very very nice indeed - love the dropouts and the fresh colour combo 8) . Always fancied a custom Yates frame . . . one day, maybe . . .

:shock: :shock: :shock: Like !!! Love the detail on dropouts/disc mount etc..
What's the frame size/weight ? Could I be cheeky and ask how much a lovely frame like this removes from wallet :roll:

The frame weighs 4.5lbs

It's around 17"

Over £1k for the frame

Over £1k, some may say expensive, some may say a bargain

I say you only live once ;)

Just fitted some Schwalbe lightweight tubes and it now weighs 24.75lbs :D

Can't wait to give it a proper ride off road now :twisted:
