Should I be upset that your nephews bike is better than all of my bikes?Fillet-brazed said:This is my nephews bike. My brother in law had the frame and fork made locally (not really a Yeti) and dug up all these parts for him. 140mm TNT cranks, ti bb, ti post, SLR seat, WCW carbon rear hub, Am Classic front road hub, King headset, RockShox Mag 21 SL Ti crown and custom aluminum legs, etc. I think its pretty cool and I wish I had a bike half this nice when I was 6! Its quite light, probably a good 5 pounds lighter than your typical off the rack 20" wheeled MTB which makes it much easier to muscle around on trails for a little guy. Its kinda got a BMX style position right now but that will probably change a bit and as he grows the seat will come up a bit of course. He loves to ride on singletrack, we just rode some today and he kept wanting to ride back up and hit it again! He just got it rideable, there are still a few parts that will be changed, but I thought some of you dads and vintage guys might appreciate a pic.
I dig the attention to detail right down to the fox decals on the fork legs and saddle bag.
Shouldn't it be the team yellow and teal 'dart' paint?...and where's the mini T-disc!
Very cool stuff, how's it ride DL?
