Yokota Grizzly Peak
My dad bought a Yokota Grizzly Peak for me when I turned 14 in 1994, and I was riding that bike up until a moron ran a stop sign and ran the bike over on April 29, 2008. Amazingly, the frame is still okay. Up until it was run over, it was really a fun bike that held up quite well to the test of time and lots of riding on-road and off-road. With wide (2.25"), knobby tires it was fun on off-road trails. With skinnier hybrid tires, it made a fine commuter bike. I long ago lost track of how many times I'd crashed the thing, at least in incidents significantly more minor than being run over head-on by a 2006 Toyota 4Runner, so the thing is definitely well-constructed.
I'm actually now in the process of trying to put a value on it for the driver's insurance, and have run into a similar lack of information. I'd love to exchange info with you if you've found anything more, or if you have more questions for me. Bikepedia has a listing for the Grizzly Peak, but it describes a tandem bike. The nearest thing to what I have seems to be the Yosemite Pro.
