Wow, nice ride!
I just built up a used 2001 YBB, only rode it for 30 mins (since it was dark when I finished the build) up a steep hill and loved it. For me, coming from an RFX with over 6 inches of travel, I was skeptical if I'd like the ride, not up but down. Well, my skepticism was short lived even down.
Obviously, it was much better climbing. I climb liked I haven't before. But even the downhill was tolerable if not fun. The pivot takes off the edge just enough, yet gives you that hardtail challenge on the rough stuff.
It's got the exact same effective top tube length as my small RFX, but due to geometry, it feels short and just a bit cramped for me. I suppose I'll get used to it over time. I think the next size up would have been to long anyways.
Just a rave...
