    Does Anyone Recognize this Bike?

    My coach gave this bike to me and told me that it was a Yeti ARC from when Yeti and Schwinn had the same frames. I've been told over and over that it isn't a Yeti and so I decided to pull some of the tape off of the seat tube and found it has a Kona 6061 aluminum decal underneath. I emailed Kona but they said it isn't a Kona and the factory that usually builds bikes with similar serial numbers had no record of this bike. Anybody recognize this frame or see any others that look similar to it? I don't know if the paint is original either so I'm pretty much clueless. Here is where I posted all of the pictures.

    Back in the day when they were doing things together there were no disc brakes-or very few. Not sure what that is. It looks familiar, but...... Good luck

    It looks like a 2002 Kona Caldera. The only thing is that the Klassic Kona webiste says that the frame was made of 7005 aluminum but this one shows that it is made of 6061 Aluminum.

    I would start with matching your der hanger to one on wheels manu. Then that will narrow your options and just google said images of frames. There are some keys you are looking for, cable routing on top of top tube. unique dropouts for rear of frame, 1 1/8 head tube, gusset on downtube, rear der cable running under the seat stay etc.
    WTF
