Privateer magazine are currently in Portland visiting Chris King and others. Lucky them. Whilst with King they toured his factory (check the magazine for the full story I'm sure) and also managed to get some great pictures of King's personal bike, a 1993 Yeti ARC soft tail.

Check the prototype King adjustable bottom bracket!

definately not a garage queen. which is really cool to see. you can see where chris' ideas about component longevity are embedded....its not just a marketing spiel..

A bit egotistical putting all your own components on your bike...... I kid! That is absolutely beautiful! Nothing like a Yeti that's seen a bit of action!

I bet if you didn't know whose bike it was, you'd think; 'that's a weird Chris King logo on the top tube'... :wink:
