this is now keeping my Tranny company in the shed! :D
here's a bike i've always wanted since back in the day, but being a slightly more modern frame (2009), i thought i would go a little 'retro' with the build instead.
i decided to spec it with 952 XTR, ceramics and V's, and this is what i ended up with!
the ringle stem suits it too, and gives it an old school look, as does the radial front wheel!
i'm really pleased with how it's turned out!

aye of course!! :lol:
just got a shimano carbon v brake booster and a pair of clear yeti grips from on here too, should be the final finishing touches!
it rides really really nice, in fact, i will go so far as to say i think my Yeti is the nicest feeling/handing bike i have ever ridden so far, it is so so nice!
oh.... and v-brakes..... brakes that feel!!
i'm amazed at how good these are, esp with ceramic rims. i ran this same set up many moons ago, forgot how good it is, and the modulation..... just feels right!! :D
who needs disc brakes!! :wink: :wink:

I love your selection of parts, and I've always had a weakness for ARC's. Very nice build!
