This Yo Eddy is my main trail ride. It is a '92 with original paint and lots of Ringle goodness. Just swapped my buddy a set of 900 XTR cranks for these sick Bullseyes!! White Industries hub on Mavic Ceramic rear wheel, Ringle Bubba up front and XTR brakes and Mechs. This bike rides like a dream.

Just picked up a '95 Beast of the East after many years of wanting to replace the one that got stolen back in the day. This one is pretty stock at the moment. Going for a trials build to get my skills back up. I just found a Judy SL for it and am waiting to find a 1 1/8" steerer.
Looking for some Yellow Magura HS33 brakes for this baby to complete the build! Any help?

Also included pics of my more modern '99 Litespeed Unicoi with new M960 XTR cranks and SRP bling.

Enjoy!!!

Fatty

Very nice. Interested in why you prefer the yo! as your main ride over the litespeed which looks like it would eat fast trails for breakfast?

You are correct! The Unicoi absolutely owns!!!
However, my brother and I built these bikes together and I ended up riding the Fat Chance more somehow :lol:
