That's no Yeti, man!


Yes funny as it might sound, but for me Ross is THE ultimate mountainbike. It was the first brand I read about back in 1984/85 (ref. Rob van Der Plas "The Mountain Bike Book") - way before Yeti was born. For me Ross is like Gollum's "Precious" 8)

The Mountain Bike Book is our old testament, If you dont have it get it here http://www.ebay.com/itm/The-Mountain-Bike-Book-by-Rob-Van-Der-Plas-1985-Bo-/140724899735?pt=US_Nonfiction_Book&hash=item20c3db8f97#ht_500wt_1180

Nice bikes 8)

You mean to tell me that a bike can be built without using shimano bits and can still be used without serious injury or death to the rider?

You are able to change up and down the gears and stop safely too?

I just can't believe it!!

al. :wink:

Just my sort of month - I own 10 bikes and between them there's only one pair of Shimano mechs and a set of thumbies. Now let me have a rummage and a clean up!
