Finally getting around to building myself a Yo Eddy. I've tried a medium and it was too small, I have a large - but it seems too large, so here's hoping that the M/L is just right. I only think that this frame is an M/L because the serial number makes it an M, but the measurements are more inline with an M/L.
Anyways here is how I got it. Mostly XTR, with some shoddy Deore V-brakes, no post (I added the syncros), Ck headset, Manitou 3 fork, control tech stem, and taperlite bar.
I happen to have a nice BOI fork that came with my Large Yo and I plan to use it on this build. It's not the right color, it's a sort of black pearl with red pearl which sort of works with the cherry paint on the bike.
Right now I just want to get the bike built and see how it fits before I finalize the components and what not. I don't want to cut the steerer on the fork until I am sure the frame will fit me so it looks stupid at the moment.
I plan on using mostly black bits for the hardware, black stem, black bars and black post. Drivetrain will be mostly M900 XTR maybe with the Syncros cranks (which are technically too new) and I want to use the black Chris King hubs (again too new) - but I plan to make it a rider and I really like CK wheels.
I might do a period correct build just for fun and show, but if the bike fits and I like riding it I'll do a bit of a mix I think... we'll see
