Just got a SID Team w/ remote lockout in the mail, so I thought the bikes should come out for a photo op!

Here are my beloved Yo Eddys! The yellow one has a sn of 141Y2M and the Bronze Metallic has a sn of YOM2282... Is this a 2000 or 2002? Anyway, they are both chuck full 'o Ringle goodness.

The yellow is running mostly 900 XTR and XT rapidfire w/ White Industries rear wheel and Ringle front. Bullseye cranks of course w SRP bolts.

New Yo is XT/XTR with LX 8 spd pods and Avid V chip levers. Ringle Super Bubba Wheels on Mavic Ceramics and Michelin Hot S rubbers. Ringle stem and post! Race Face cranks w/ SRP kit.


Which is your favorite? Oldskool or Newskool?

Fatty

You SID decals are on the wrong side, which messes with my mind as it looks like the forks are pointing backwards.

Lovely otherwise though. :D

Fat City closed in 2000 so unlikely 2002. The 8 in there says 1998 to me, although its strangely misplaced (my 98 has the 8 on the end of the serial).

Sweet bikes. Any chance you can get a weight on them? Just curious.

Hate to say it but I really like the one kitted out with modern parts...that's a bike can be raced/used on a regular basis :D

Ha Ha!!! I didn't even realize that until you pointed it out! I guess I own a pair of dyslexic forks! Thanks for the kind words guys! I personally love the newer Yo! It rides more modern and is easier on my back on long rides.
