Does that look right? No accutrax fork, dodgy dropouts, twin struts running across the centre, superb decal placement (ringle stem, cook bros decal on a $50 chainset). Maybe my eyesight/memory is failing though..

Its a bit naughty that the guy is obviously a Yeti fan (by his eBay name and the Ti frame in the shot) so passing it off is not really on is it!

I wasn't aware of them until Darren from silverfish mentioned one to me, I saw the heading and the price and outed it as i knew there were such a small amount made.
