Great find or should I say save.
Sure Missy would be proud to see it out on the trail rather than on a wall!
Nice work :D

That was such a great movie, thanks for putting it together. I think you may have set the bar for all the other builders. Everyone should make a short of themselves cruising their retrobike on some sweet singletrack so we can all ride these dream bikes vicariously.

I loved the story and the bike. But the video blew me away. It made me miss living in Colorado - I almost couldn't watch it.

I miss it there.

Fantastic bike and one of the most iconic for me, I had a huge poster of Missy aboard this machine on my wall in my early teens.

So this pretty much poo-poo's collective concerns about riding bikes with dents! :wink:

Lovely, lovely stuff. So how does it ride, say compared with other Yeti's? It looks incredibily agile, really sharp and responsive.

Nice story and great video :D 8) .

It probably captures all of the time this iconic bike was actually ridden uphill as I recall these machines behing brought to the start of a downhill by cableway, or sometimes even by helicopter. And I also recall seeing a picture of Missy getting out of a helicopter with a serious shoulder injury after crashing horribly during a (Kamikaze?) heat.

BTW, is there a serial number on this frame?

Great bike, superbe video! But there is one last thing to do. Let Missy ride this thing again. :)

Now that WOULD be cool.... perhaps an interview and ride feature for the site!
