mutual respect for your turquoise one Chris. Mine is #K0056. and its a "yeti" 16 inch, so only about 14.5 centre to centre.
Still- the sweet yeti ride is unmistakable. I like the twang of my klein, but the handling just isn't lilke the yeti.
No cracks yet- but the seat post is a 440mm for plenty of overlap inside the tube. For a 3.5lb one season warranty race frame, it owes me nothing. I kep expecting it to expire each yer, but it just keeps going. Another 20 on it today, maybe 60 this week, and it just keeps rolling. Heaven knows how many rims and chains its been through in the last 15 years. ..

93 Klein Fervor. Bike had barely been used before coming to me.I shipped it in from the States, where it had sat in a garage for most of its life....

one last thing...

Hi fellow retrobikers, here´s my first BoTM entry, hope you enjoy. It is a 1994 Yeti A.R.C. which I own from bitd very much like it is built up today. I have not made a thread in readers bikes, so here´s a short story about it (and maybe 1 pic more). The frame was once featured in the german BIKE magazin as part of some US-dreamframes article. It was somewhere in ´94, unfortunately I have not a scan I can provide you. The frame was then built up by German & Moehren, the german Yeti - Importer, for some show here and there, and I got it in ´95 from them, together with a nice dart custom colored Flite (well, before Selle Italia did this). I raced it a lot back then, and when I started studying, it spent its time in the garage ridden here and then, and today I ride it as often as I can. I hope you enjoy the pics :-)

Enjoy
