    Very nice. It looks very clean - I like the all white.
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    Bling! Very nice!

    Of course it's easier to keep clean when you know that most of the Ringle and Grafton parts would disintegrate if it was ridden in anger

    The very epitome of a classy bike. Subtly upscale, it doesn't have to shout at you to tell you it's a nice bike.

    The early Ringle hubs disintegrate when hanging on the wall.

    It's certainly a subtle build for its time - I think the Tri-dangles suit - Mojos might look kind of hokey on such a minimalist bike. What's with the bottle cage placement though? One you can't use and one you can't reach?

    +1

    Although I must say I think it would look cleaner/better without the Ringle water-bottle cages... of course that doesn't jive with it being a Ringle show bike

    Enjoy! Glad to see you're going to ride it AND hang it an the mantle!

    I know what you mean. I was not a yeti fan for a long time. The first Yeti I bought was and ARC and the binder was cracked. I had to part it out. I thought that the PRO FRO being steel was a better place to start.

    Very cool. And very under stated, especially for the time.

    Is that handle bar upside down?

    It's zero rise, so I don't think there is an upside or downside. But, you would either have to postion it so that the lettering is upright when seated on the bike, or when in front of the bike.

    I positioned it so that the 5 deg marking on the inside of the bar is right side up. If I flipped it the hyperlite would be correct from the front, but the rider would see the 5 deg upside down.

    I should have been more clear. I was making a semi-joke. Whenever I put one of those bars on I can never decide which way is "correct". Doesn't really matter functionally though.
