Hey there!
Here's my 96 Yeti Sherpa. The overall look actually is more classic than the single parts might suggest. Most of the parts are from 96, some parts like the Cook cranks or the XT thumbies are from 94.

Lovely clean understated build, apart from the Vee brakes instead of Canti's, rear canti hanger just looks horrendous stuck out in space and redundant. needs some nice trick black Canti's.

Very nice! I agree, black Ringle Moby would look good.
