If that's the case the "new" C26's should be in the post 97 section as they were built recently.


Only the front half ;)

Pull the pin....boom. Wow Nice bike.
I am a Klein fan but only have a Rascal and Pinnacle. That has just added a bike back on my wish list.

Prepare to be chased out of town by the thumbsuckers, pedants, and blokes in old (read, retro) cotton sheets (read, flouro lycra), chanting "Retro... Retro... Retro... ", whilst burning effigies of Treks and Specialized at the alter of pre 97 originality :lol:

Not a big fan of the Breezer because its not made by Joe and it's not vintage but at this point it'd get my vote.

YES!! Mardi Gras Adroit! That's the bike I was hoping was going to turn up in the Yeti/Klein/Fat special month. Thanks for posting. It's going to take alot to beat that for me this month. If I ever get my Klein repainted I think Mardi Gras is the front runner for the colour scheme - I'm struggling to think of a more ridiculous (in a good way) paint job.

While I'm here, for what it's worth I'll wade into the c-26 debate. I'd say that if the materials used were from back in the day then for me it's most certainly a pre-97 bike. I LOVE the Breezer tribute - difficult to say whether it belongs pre-97 though. I'd argue that a retro frame with modern parts could still be considered old school so why not a modern frame with retro parts?

Either way - I'm not bothered - it's just good to see it here and thanks for posting such a great project.

So much C-26 talk, might as well have one in the competition this month.

Yeti C-26. Not a 'tribute' bike.

The same with C26's, ...to me the others are like the MR2 Ferrari replicas mentioned above.


I see the Herting built C26's more like taking a Ferrari 308 and making a Ferrari GTO replica. The Toyota comparison woult be more fitting to a non-Yeti bike with carbon decals to make it look like a C26.
