In a single word..... Nice :D

Out of the two Yeti's you have there I know which one I'd sling a leg over and ride off on
and it wouldn't be that modern tat that you have sat next to your ARC

Joking aside both are great bikes, and as you point out above the modern one has the edge.
but then it would be sad day if technology and design hadn't moved on from 1992 :wink:

saturday i rode the older for 30 km , but sunday i rode the newest
for 110 km , almost 1800 mt vertical drop , with some hard technical sections
and i was sure i wouldn't get problems to brakes , tires , etc

i saw enormous difference during downhill

respect for the granny 8)

cheers

Wow that is really beautiful! Great job!!

I especially like your choice of decals.

Piranna pro tires are easy to find. They came on higher end cannondales as well.
