Hi guys,
I'm coming with the last bike in my collection! YETI ULTIMATE
has the reinforcement on the vertical tube and the outer string collar, so I think it's a 1991 or 1992, as soon as I can I tell you the serial number under the bb
A friend of mine had it identical in the 90s, turquoise color and fluorescent yellow fork (this one is a bit faded).
Now I have to decide how to mount it and whether to change the decals with some originals that I already have at home or order new ones.
the frame is in excellent condition, no crack or bang.
when I have a little time I dismantle it and polish it well

Very cool, I've always loved the elevated chainstay stuff. Reminds me of my old RM Cirrus.

these days I was thinking how to mount it, I remembered so many memories of when I used that of a friend of mine from the 90s.
so I am taken by the desire to try it I decided for the moment not to mount esoteric, but a classic and effective xtr M900, silck tires and ride.
between yesterday and today I did about 97km with a height difference of 1550mt
great beautiful bike, it's really good, agile, but heavy on the scale
two photos :P
