Mr. Spwal mentioned this thread and asked me to make some remarks.

Having been the guy that welded these bikes together, I can assure you that we made frames in different configurations as required.

It could certainly be a repair or something made out of spare parts at any point in time. We did change several set of drops on frames but rarely replaced the whole back of a used frame. We also made bikes out of spares as needed for racers or VIP's.

Only the people who have owned it before know it's history and that has likely been forgotten.

yes this is a Nitto stem (I got also one)

For being more precise, it's a nitto made stem called Cannondale 285 stem. It's quite the same as a ritchey force quill stem, but it was made for Cannondale for the SM omega or the SM2000. :wink:
An ATAC stem fits better on a Yeti. I agree. So, you should sale me your Nitto :lol:



Edit...

And here some more Nitto-love Image

That looks great Nader! The cable housing will be a nice touch. M900?
