Forgive me - I've just made that monochrome pic my desktop background . . . and I'm kicking myself for not visiting Durango last month . . . so close.

Hmm...good question. I would have wanted the Yeti regardless of whether it was built in Durango. It's just a cool coincidence though. Alot of the lust from Yetis came from hanging out in Chris Herting's shop. Lets just say there's some 'memorabilia' on the wall that got me thinking about doing a Yeti. I wanted him to be involved, but he wasn't interested :(

Fantastic Mike!

Didn't think you'd be able to top the FAT, and remember telling you at the time you were crazy to flog it. You said you couldn't keep still long and had another project in the pipeline.

You've succeeded in my eyes (and others by the sound of it!).

As Malvin says - the cranks fit the build perfectly.

Leave the pimpy bits off!!
