Ok, so you have a couple of the correct decals and some that are not correct. Whatever.

I'm just saying what's correct and what isn't. Not what's right or wrong. I love a good lavender bike and my first resto was Yo Eddy in Team Violet, gorgeous bike.

Sharing something on the internet opens you up to both a happy stroke fest and possibly criticism. None of us called you or your bike stupid, just questioned where you were going and pointed out some faults. Don't take it personally, we don't hate you. We may not agree with the direction you're going or maybe don't get it given some of your inconsistent choices. That's all, nothing more.

peace and love
I was not offended, I just want to build a Yeti ARC different, mixing purple and turquoise without too much excess. I could do it all xtr m900 (I have at least 4 complete units ready), but I will not make it trivial. I could put the brakes cantilever campagnolo (I have new ones) but the critical are beautiful , my bike will never be perfect as yours or that of some other bikers on this forum, was not born for this, I hope you understand.

This bike was sold as a frame only and then everyone was mounting the way he wanted, not like other brands that sell complete, this is my thought.

This bike in the 90's was my dream, it was called the testarossa of mountainbike 8)
