Ok, my third and final YO Eddy is complete! '91 Yo in Medium with lots of Ringle goodness...AS ALWAYS! I know all of you chaps are going to talk trash about the risers, but get used to it, that's my style :wink:
Cook bros cranks, White Industries rear wheel on Mavic Ceramic, Ringle front Wheel, XT 8sp rapidfire, XT band on front mech, XTR cantis.
I took this beauty out for a long ride this weekend and she handles great. Not sure what length travel that SL is but it might have seemed to slow the geometry down a tad. I included a pic of the Yo fork as well for all you guys that are also gonna bash the Judy shock! ha ha! Anywho, enjoy!

Who'd have thought yellow went so well with purple!
Looks good.
I'm not going to say anything about the riser, i've got one on my Clockwork now (Answer Alumilite)- sometimes you just need the comfort factor. :wink: What are the bars btw?

That looks sweet as a nut.

Judys do look quite tall though, might be better runningthem at 63mm travel.

Does the concept of rhubarb and custard need translating for denizens of the former colonnies?
