I bought a Yo yesterday.
Bike numer 3 in 1 month after the Klein Attitude Dolomiti and Dean Titanium (almost finished)

The bike is in a gorgeous original condition.
The bike was covered in dust, has not been used for years and year.
Here some pictures from yesterday,.. and today after the first ride with my Daughter

Was looking for a needle in a haystack , a BOI fork for the Yo but i had a spare Syncros Powerlite fork (the legs)
Put the Syncros in the Yo,.. Looks rather cool if you ask me ;)

I have used the Yo now a couple of times offroad,.. honestly, i can not imagine that a modern bikes is better,.. this bike is so much fun

very nice! :)

size is L, correct? however steerer Tube is not too Long, probably due to Suspension correction.

I am about to build a Black ML from 93.

Are you sticking to the Syncros forks or getting some BOI (or replica)?

Exactly, from 94 the steerer tube lengths are noticeably shorter to correct for suspension. They look better too IMO. Here's mine also a large 94 before I built it up.
