    Official Yeti Picture Thread (Post your Yetis Here!)

    FROs, Ultimates, what do you got? I love old Yetis, anything from California and early Durango days.

    Use the search feature....there are countless threads on Yetis.

    Though...oddly enough, I don't see any 'official Yeti picture thread' posts...this would be a good start for one.

    Hi.


    1990 FRO


    1997 FRO


    1992 Ultimate

    and then there was that really old bike from 1984, John Parkers Prototype, thats not mine any longer. Well, life changes when you have kids and I know it's in a good place together with other iconic bikes

    Greetings,

    Michael

    Still have some changes to make but I'm getting close. Anybody got an extra accutrax and an ATAC they want to part with?

    the kona fork you got there has more rake than a accutrax. if you like how it rides, good but the answer fork will give you a subtle different handling; it's rake is better for high speed handling something yetis are proud of.

    The Project 2 also appears to be suspension corrected which will also cause subtle differences in handling

    Yep this Project was the earliest I could find. According to my research the Axle-Crown measurement is the lowest of anything I could find. Well I also have a Cannondale Pepperoni too but that just wouldn't be right.. I know it's not perfect but it's getting there.. Eventually I'll either find the right fork or pay Chris Herting to do me up a reproduction too.

    Bushpig you and I have discussed this at length although through email not the forums. Like the Cook's cranks? They were formerly yours!

    Wow - that is a monster head tube on that bike. You have to watch eBay for the Accutrax. They come up. A long steered set recently went through and sold cheap if I recall correctly.

    Those 4130 Yeti's are just fantastic.I have always loved the Firemans cruzers and the Yeti bikes remind me so much of that bike.Hope to have one or the other one day.

    There's a dude who rides around Durango with a Zephyr, its pretty cool. It has cantilever mounts and cable stops. I heard they're pretty rare.

    Yes they look very nice IRL I think, the shape of the back of the frame is nice. It is a tube that loops at the bottom bracket. The computer bent part is nice to, a bit different than traditional steel frames. Ultimate looks wicked with many cool twists and tubes. A 4130 with Accu-trax and A-tac looks really good, especially if fork/bar/stem is painted in another color than frame.
