Hello everybody

Welcome to another glacial build that by the time it’s finished we’ll likely be back in Europe...bit of mild politics there and if that doesn’t help a retro build I don’t know what does!

I mean probably money, tenacity, time, creativity...etc etc...

Anyway, moving on, courtesy of the venerable Mr Kawasaki (real name apparently. Mr Neil Kawasaki) I have a beautiful Yeti FRO / Sherpa / mmmm..not sure.

Came with the revolvers but likely going for some nice clean middleburns.

Forks fresh from eBay.

Want some vintage racks to powder coat neon yellow.

Already have some neon taperlites, an old ringle wheelset and yeti turq grips.

Then it’ll be boring old m900 I expect.

Probably.

Nice project you have there, ..... BTW before we can rejoin first we have to leave which could be as glacial as the build speed your predicting :lol:

Is a Sherpa inch and a Quarter or inch and one eighth ? As those forks look to have plenty of girth ?

What are they worth do you think?

Was tempted to offer them up for m900 swaps...

Wouldn't know what they're worth: what's their condition?
And you mean swaps against fc-m900, or m900 bits in general?

Looking forward to seeing your build progression. 8)

Definitely not as slow as my Yeti build, which is getting on for the speed of continental plate shifts. :facepalm:

I have an M900 chainset I’ll happily swap you.
