This might be a noddy question, but what's the difference between the fork and an Accutrax? Not having either in front of me, they look quite similar.

Thats a good question, one on which I've only recently been recently educated.

Yeti Fork: 85-89-ish. gradual bend in the fork blades + campy dropouts.
Accutrax: Post 89 license to Answer. Sharper bend in the blades, laser cut dropouts.

There was also a "blend" period where Yeti continued to build the forks the way they always had, and Answer just had them slap stickers on.

Unfortunately not and the bikes are in my secret stash back in the UK. One to investigate when I'm re-united ....
