    1990 yeti ultimate

    Hello,
    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

    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.

    Sorry about the quality of the image..

    1990 , 19" made in california.

    Spec :

    frame : 19" original paint.
    Forks : accutrax ( original to the frame, where once yellow )
    Head set : 1990 shimano xt.
    Wheels : 1990 mavic paris dakar 36h with xt hubs, ringle cam twist skewers.

    Shifters : 1990 xt thunmbies.
    Levers : 1990s avid ultimates ( cnc blue ano levers 56grm each ) just fitted.
    Grips : 1993 yeti also has black yetiman bar plugs.
    Bar ends : control tech team issue.
    Cables : 1993 xtr grey outers.
    Seat : flight titanium.
    Seat post : syncros titanium.
    Seat clamp/skewer : original yeti bmx type, ringle cam twist ( not ti ).
    Brakes : front - avid canties. rear - scott pederson self energizers. koolstop pads.

    All the above is mostly original to this bike, parts changed recently include the :

    The head sticker is original but worn so is the ultimate sticker. the ice axe sticker is from 93 replacing the damaged original.. the easton sticker is home made.
