It's a 1997 frame, but the spec isn't :oops:

I liked the ride of the 18" YBB I had previously, but it was too large :roll: So now a 17" recently acquired with the help of Rob in the States :)

Plan was to build it up quite light. All parts weighed before assembly ;)

A few pics, not great quality though :?

Love the bike! I would lose the Rollamajig though. I know that they offer clean cable routing, but that is just one more moving part to clog and cause problems. Just my two cents. :D

Very very nice, testamant to Moots that's a 97 and it still looks current with (more) modern kit on.

How do you find the YBB?

Cheers John :)

I like the YBB, it just takes the 'edge' off which is good for me, nice and smooth. Only had very brief go on it, so very keen to give it a longer run.

I believe though, that with the combination of the low weight and the soft-tail I'm going to like it :D
