Hmm, the headset - it's been so long since I put it in that I can't remember for sure! I know my older Yeti is a 1 incher so I stuck a BMX one in there!

Good point, I'll get in touch with him

Elev12k - thanks for the tip on Commandant. I haven't seen it in the UK but a classic car enthusiast friend swears by Autoglym so I might give that a try.

What the difference between a FRO and a Pro FRO ?



I lived in the US for a short time ('92/ '93) and from memory reading an ad for Yeti, the Pro FRO was only meant to be sold to NORBA members. Not to sure how they were to do this - maybe you had to give your licence number when ordering?

Still the same bike, so thought I'd tack this on the end of the thread ...

Found this one in a shoe box of my Yeti with her Smoke and Dart Magics. This reminds me, I MUST put a flat bar back on her!

Are you sure it's a 95 model? It looks older. I would say 91.
Anyway, a nice example of a FRO!

Different angles and different materials. The Fro had 4130 steel, the Pro had Tange tubing.

This one looks more like an regular FRO. The seat binder is def a FRO style (BMX style). The Pro has just a bolt. Allso the cablestops are welded, the Pro has aluminium stop blocks that are riveted to the frame.

I say its a late FRO .. 89-90 or so.
