1995 Yeti ARC build complete

This is a rags to riches story if I ever heard one... Transformed from a boring black, cracked frame to a gleaming team replica, this bike is a real survivor! This project has been in the works since October with a parts search that rivaled Ponce de Leon's search for the fountain of youth. It took two sets of turqoise Ringle wheels, four turquoise Ringle seatposts, three Ringle stems, three pairs of Topline cranks, two hyperlite bars, two Rock Shock Judys, plus several sets of M900 XTR. Brakes are Critical Racing, White Industries Ti bottom bracket, Ti Ringle Twist QRs, IRC Piranha tires, Flite Ti seat and Ti spindle Shimano PD M737 pedals. The headtube repair was done by none other that FTW, Risse provided a custom Judy cartridge with White Brothers springs, Chris King contributed the last ever 1 1/4 turquoise headset and Spectrum powderworks adorned it in its beautiful team Yeti livery. I think most will agree that this bike is pretty damn awesome! On to the pics!!!!
