    Very nice. Was this frame NOS? Looks clean - like the rest of her bling.

    bianchi - it's all original, except for the grips, cranks and chainguide
    i also needed a different bottom bracket to install the chainguide, as the bike originally did not come with one.i still have the cranks, though - the bike was spec. all xtr.
    it was quite the bike in the day!
    cheers!

    Most derailers now come with all of the spacers to fit your frame. The problem you may encounter is the cable stop. There is not one on the frame. You will need one in order for the derailer to work.

    I didn't want to hassle with it on mine. So I put a 36 tooth front ring on my e13 SRS and an 11-34 on the back. I can pedal it just about anywhere. The only time I wish I had a bigger gear is when I hit the open parts of ski slopes. I spin out rather quickly on those.

    Better late than never, but I believe it's a 1997, the same year as the one I have (same colors, too).

    I'll try to get some pics of it up soon...

    Here it is my completely stock 1997 Moab 1. I bought this bike brand new, rode it for about a year, then it's been in the garage until a few weeks ago.

    What a great thread....Here is my Straight 6(sold) that I miss so dearly. I also used to have a Homegrown that was so light and so quick, I am trying to track down a Rocket 88 and a Homegrown right now......I miss Schwinn. My first real mountain bike was a Moab 3, and it really got me into this sport.

    My racer for this season. It's not how you feel, it's how you look! BTW, if anyone can make a guess at what year this is, let me know. It's all Bass Boat Blue (no silver) and it has the braze on for cantilever style rear brakes.

    Same as mine (see post #101)! I am 99% sure it is 1997 frame. Apparently the last few frames that were built in the Yeti factory at the time.

    Your frame looks a lot better than mine though!

    That's definitely a '97 Factory frame. Yeti built. Enjoy it, they are great bikes!

    mtbdee,
    are you bdee of NEMBA fame? If so, we've met. I ride with the Bikes Unlimited guys and we raced in the same class in Root 66, although this year I graduate to the 40 year olds.
