Four years ago I found a red/black Yeti ARC-AS (1995) frame at a local shop for sale. After four years of e-Bay hunting, I decided she was ready for a new powder coat, before dressing her up. For the purists, I tried the Answer, Yeti flat bars again today, I swear, but I can't get comfortable on them, hence the Titecs. And cantilevers? Not happening.

Very well done. Looking sharper than original by a long shot!

Thanks fellas. After joining these forums I realized that I needed to take the restoration to whole new level. I hate to admit it, but it can be intimidating to show a bike around here. It's not because people are dicks. It's more that people here make pretty good judges of these things. For all practical purposes I'm an adult, but at 35 I still want all the kids on the block to think my bike looks cool. :D
