Well, she's done. The other Yo had to go to make room for this :D It'll be getting a lap at Mountain Mayhem.

Original paintwork is in great condition although impossible to do it justice in a photo! Thats why I went with all black parts in the end, to highlight the frame.
Special thanks to Dan (cannondale king) for the wheels, although getting the tyres onto aero rims = scuffed knuckles and broken tyre levers.
