"This is not The Greatest Song in the World
, No.. This is just a Tribute
And so it is with this immortal quote, that I begin the Build Thread for my John FROmac [sic].. This is not one of JT's [many] race YETIs, this is a Tribute
The Canvas for this Build is sinnerman's
YETI FRO which I snagged a few months back.
After a Strip Back to the frame alone, the Build moved forward with a period silver Chris King Threadset bolting the RAL1026 resprayed Accutrax to the fuselage.
With the Devil in the Detail, I have tried to start from the base components and work upwards. Wheelset starts with an M732 rear hub, converting it to Eight Speed; Cue hub stripdown, freehub removal..
36 Hole version necessary for the Requisite Rumbler..
Lace that up to a Mavic 231CD, and shoe it with a Dawg..
Cleaned up some parts from the Donor Build..
No Delusions of Grandeur here..
120 Tioga TBone, some rise, and a Cinelli 48 to reduce the Trail Twitch.. Cousin, King & Front Wheel slotted in..
Bar Tape Cable Tape Prep..
..and It's a Wrap..
Second Bedroom aka The Workstation..These are the Brakes
The Cantis are a duff set I picked up some time ago, just waiting for the right build/excuse/time..
They polish up good
