    1990 Yeti Ultimate w/ Campagnolo Euclid

    Just got this one as a semi-local trade-in. Guy brought it over from Raleigh and traded towards a new Trek hybrid bike. Going with 1990 by the parts on the bike. Serial looks to be U141 but is hard to read. Campagnolo Euclid parts (some with the optional finish) with Centaur pedals and the older brake/shift levers (might not have liked the new Bullet shifters?). Pretty decent condition with a little hazy rust showing through the finish in a couple of areas. Looks to have damaged the rear MA-2 roll down rim and replaced it with a Matrix rim. Checked the inventory and we don't have an MA-2 with 32 holes. Might have to see what other rims we could match up? The white Bullseye hubs are pretty cool.

    I mean this in a very unjudgemental way, but it seems odd to me that the person who must have pieced that Yeti together would one day find himself trading it in towards (towards!) a new Trek hybrid.

    Nice pick up Jeff. It's making me feel a little depressed though.

    The guy we got it from was not the original owner. The original owner gave the bike to this guy to ride and he traded it in to us. He did get permission from the original owner to trade it and I think he threw his a little $$ as well.

    It is. Nice early 20" with two piece downtube decals. Jeff, is that a WTB decal on the downtube? Yup, very nice example. It should clean up well.

    Yep, WTB decal.......with no WTB parts! Probably give it a good scrubbing, match up the rims and add it to the collection. We already have one Ultimate but they are pretty different from one another.

    The fork caps are the original style that were phased out while at Agoura. Does it have a bulge butted Tange seat tube?

    The short piece of tubing that goes between the down tube and front of the rear section that houses the seat tube and cable is called the "love story tube". We made the original Love story tubes with a series of simple tools that pressed, formed and cut all the features. At some point, the job got farmed out to a laser shop. There was always a lot of trouble with those, getting the fit perfect. If you can picture trying to mitre a tube to the outside of the bend on another tube. Very difficult.

    The earliest release of the U would have had no relief cuts on the dropouts. I am not sure about the bulged seat tube however. I think I remember some of these having the straight-gauge .035" seat tube.

    Linda always wanted to build the bikes in numerical sequence to try to keep track of where they were going. You can be sure the smaller the number, the older the frame as far as actual manufacture date.
