What I lack is a Bullseyes cranks :? ...but I think a black XT 730 or Cook bros would also be good.
Does anyone have a link to the Yeti 1988 catalog?

Looks really nice - a change from all the single colour ones 8)

Interesting frame, round top tube but a gusset on the chain stay which came on later FROs I think - maybe a repair?

What size steerer is it? Got a pic of the drop-outs?

Hopes and dreams make great facts to report on the Internet right?

That frame has undergone numerous structural upgrades FYI.

Why bother riding in, to burst his bubble, giving only partial information and facts, while chastising him for his lack of facts (misinformation?). The frame/fork was on ebay not too long ago, and was from a FL seller. It had red flags, but if you know what they are, why not enlighten those who don't.

Guess it's cooler the way you guys do it. Though you guys come off looking like jerks, unnecessarily. Each one teach one, as you already went there, why not go all the way.
