if you want 3 canti ferrules for the canti break hose i can possibly help you. if you're interested i'll search for them tomorrow.


I've got them but not necessary on mine :wink:
Thanks Inigo.
For the year, I agree, it's around 94-95, but the geometries are the same and there were a tange decal on it. But the original decals were so ugly.
When I bought the bike to a friend, there were a Judy Rock Shox on it ! What a shame !
I really prefer the philosophy of the first Yeti, around 89-90. Neon colors, accu-trax and A-tac. When ringle came with anodized parts, it was not the same thing, the brand went from something "trash" to something blingbling.
That's why Gil send me the 1989 decals :wink:

Are the cranks the ones with the scoop machined out the back or are the early solid ones?


No, it's a classic Cookbros RSR. I've got this crank you are speaking about : there's "cook's " and the size of the arm "176" written on it.
But I built this bike with some parts I owned in my garage, and I recognize, the bike isn't history correct (yes, it's not acceptable ! :lol: )

The colour is exceptional. Nice work.

An idea : in spring, I'll do a picture : the yeti and the klein attitude !
In the beginning of 90ies, I didn't undestand why so neon colors…
Now, when I see all the modern bike with these boring white-red and carbon fiber colors… I understand !

neon is not dead !!!! :lol: :lol:
