1990 yeti ultimate
Im new to this forum, and should have joined sooner, nice too see all these cool bikes.
I will post some better pictures of my bike when i figure out how to list photos.
I have owned my yeti ultimate form new, Graham at harry halls cycles in manchester got it for me back in 1990..
its spec has not changed since 1993, apart from a few recent parts..
I used to race it back in the day, but a serious accident stopped me from riding... so after nearly 20 years of no use ive just recently got it out of retirement.... you wont believe how much ive missed riding.
Any way , i will take some new pics when i get the chance..
Below if it works is a link to my flickr account...
I look forward to hear from any like minded yeti fans

Who is John Galt?
Amazing you still have that and it still works. Yeti made some cool bikes.
ive had a few comments whilst out on it, most things where still good, i had bought a
'ti' syncros post for it a while ago to replace the bent alloy post, but the head set was very indexed to the point of being unridable ( now replaced with a nos xt ).
The wheels are next, the original xt hubs from 1990 still run smooth, but the 'mavic dakar' rims have had it ( im still using them , but the side walls are very thin )
Also , ive taken the red z max tyres off for now, has irc's at the mo...
I will take some pics as soon as possible.
