Here's one for you.

Can anyone give me the name of the E-Stay frame produced by Dave Yates?

I am currently reading a book called Adventure Mountain Biking, that my FiL got from a library book sale. It was published in 1990 and in it there are a series of pictures showing Dave making an E-Stay bike.

Anyone got a name? Or better still, a picture?

There is a picture of it in this thread. Im sure i loaded it up, not the best pic, but there is also a custom built version made for Mr Cruds lad here too.

If you could Scan the pics you have that would be another great addtion to the thread.

Great pictures Neil.

A master at work :)

I wonder if I can find a copy of that book. Is it a good read so far?

It's very dated, and there is a huge amount of space dedicated to clothing :?

I think my FiL got it for next to nothing, so if you can find it for a couple of quid it would make an interesting addition.

Thanks Neil, I'll have a look and see if anything comes up on Amazon later.

Would like to do a bit more reading on the old mountain bike scene if anybody has any other recommendations.

Ebay is great for old books as a lot of traders sell off stuff there.

Always worth search.

I would love to think someone somewhere has an old unloved unused E-Stay in there shed, i think we should all keep an eye out for Overburys, Dave Lloyd and Dave Yates e-stay frames.

3 models yet to grace our retro community as yet.
