    It is not a Yeti. It is a 2001-2002 Rocky Mountain Pipeline.

    Hi again, Wow, you guys are good, Thank you. I had already began thinking I was duped and it wasn't a Yeti. Explains why I couldn't find it. Certainly does appear to be the pipeline. I think a 1999 though since that is the year they offered it in "Violent Violet" 01 was Grey and black, 02 was Red Anyway, Thank you again, I really appreciate your help.

    It's a nice frame still but hope you didn't pay too much for it, much of the bike needs to be worked upon and it's very weathered.

    I know a lot of people talk about 'mindless hucking' (maybe more over at Pinkbike than here), but Simmons shows a huge amount of skill there. The way he absorbs drops reminds me of trials riders.

    That looks like a fun project bike! Imagine that frameset with a up to date fork and shock like a Rev or Kashima 32 Float and RP23 with a full XT drive and brakes!
