'04 Yeti 4x Special Projects #86


Yeti Fan
I was lucky enough to own one of these back in 2004 when I ran and race for the Yeti Europe Team.

It's been one of my top 5 bikes I've ever owned and I massively regretted selling it back in the day to fund the racing.

Roll forward to now and I managed to locate a frame, sadly not one of our original team ones, but still one of the 100 made in 2004 for the Special Projects, project.

I've built the frame up with modern stuff, because I do actually ride this bike and I wanted to see how it felt. It still feels great, fast and nimble, but so small compared to modern bikes.

Very cool indeed, there was a YETI 4x hanging on the wall in a mtb. shop I used to pop into (mostly to check out the YETI!) Looks brilliant with full current Hopetech kit.
