Thanks mate, I got a little carried away with the FRO...

Seem to be making the same mistake with the ARC :shock:

Well, I guess that only means your ARC will be one hell of a show and something we can look forward to :lol:

Yeah I should probably start a build thread for it, though sourcing a 36h 3DV Ringle front hub is probably going to slow the process down

How is the Sherpa compared to the pro fro? Same frame maybe?

Two differences I know about:
1. Sherpa rear end: 2 pieces, PRO FRO rear: 1 piece
2. Canti cable holder on the the frame are different.

But I don't know about about the geometry or any other differences. Anyone?

How the Hell did I miss this thread :facepalm:

Came across it completly by accident when looking for info on Sherpa's
as I confused the one I've been offered with a Yak, which has the extra
mounts ala Silverfish's latest build


What a cracking build :D

Accutrax would've been my first choice, but the frame is already suspension corrected. I needed 410-420mm forks.


Doesn't look it? forks look pretty long. In 1996 surely suspension corrected would have been for a ~395-405mm fork?

Anyway, Nicely understated, frame speaks for itself rather than battling the 3DV and CNC for attention.

Here is my tank. I'v been riding it since mid 90's and it is steel going strong. Racing it this weekend as a matter-of-fact. Love love love my Yeti...it's been with me through hell and back.
