Looks lovely!

But...

It's definitely going to look even lovelier with the aforementioned black wall's and silver post!

Disc drive, on the other hand... They're just not for me!

Being the previous owner of the bike I'd like the first option to purchase back if you decide to sell in the future. As my financial situation is now not so desperate. 🙏

Re:

I remember racing in Shirley Hills on cyclocross type events, along with Mike (previous owner of your frame).

Back then, I recall there was a team whether or not it was an official Yeti team but linked to Bromley Bike shop as I remember one of the guys riding the Yetis was from the shop.
The Ultimates they were riding were all white and so I thought that might have been the original colour of ours.
The shop had it re-sprayed before selling them - not sure why, also remember that there were stories of cracked seattubes but I cant see evidence of a replacement on mine.
Anyway, mine rusted at the bottom so Chas Roberts repaired it and that meant re-spraying it to white.
Still have it but dont use it.
I remember going to Bromley Bike shop every weekend to dribble over their stock. It was amazing. Especially when they had a white Ultimate with the full pirple Ringle and grafton kit on it. Looked out of of this world. That shop was a mecca for Yeti Ringle Grafton Bullseye Syncros etc.
Also saw Dave Hemming in there with a Klein Attitude as be lived locally.
Due to the quality of the repair I then went and ordered a Dogs Bolx in 2010 and then this year focused on building a Fat Chance XS for my son and a matching Yo Eddy for myself.

Hi Mike - I will definitely bear that in mind. I hope you don't mind the changes I've made - I believe them to be sympathetic improvements / alternatives to what was already a good base ☺️. Removed all the non-Yeti stickers though 😬
