This is my Barn Fresh unrestored Yeti Ultimate that I salvaged out of the attic of a very rural Bike Shop (for stupidly low money) Originally thought about White Bullseye Cranks to match the White Bullseye Hubs and a White Turbo and removing the gold. But after a while I have decided to leave it in its original state. Wheels will be switched back to the original XTs.
Sorry it is not as pristine as most the BOTM entries.
But..... I like its patina.
Will try and round up the thread in which I found it last year.

Edit-Here is the link to the original thread with Specs added

Off to a good start. I wouldn't change a thing on that bike. Upgrades are period and just the right amount of patina, not abused and not a garage queen. Very nice.

I think the Trek is horribly obnoxious. Thats probably why I like it. If you are going to go neon go big or go home. I think it kicks ass. Like the Kona too, nice clean build and color choices compliment each other.
