Here's some real quick photos of a Yeti that just came into my hands ..... I know nothing about it ... late '80's or early '90's? It needs some clean up and TLC but it's a very nice ride. If anybody knows some info I'd appreciate it.







Thanks,

Scott

Thanks, older MTB's are new to me. Looks like a good winter project to get to know better and clean it up.
I did a search for Yeti's in this thread but came up with nothing. Were they not very popular?

Thanks Bas for that link. I'm already hooked on retro bikes, just not MTB's. It's a scary path to ride down when you already have a house full of old steel.

Ow,..found a picture of my oldest bike,..
Pictures are not that good,..nor is the bike but i still like it.
It is a Giant Sierra from the period that Giant paid attention to their bikes.
What i like about this one is that there are no stickers but the colours are painted,..even the GIANT logo on the tube, quite an expensive way of painting for such a big bike brand.




the groupeset on the bike is in a great condition, looks like close to new after my evening of cleaning.

That's a great collection of bicycles! I love the Nishiki in one of the shots. In an effort to thin out my group and retain my focus on vintage road bikes, this Nishiki Pinnacle just went out to a good friend:



I found it sitting by the curb waiting for the trash pickup. It would been a shame if it had been recycled into scrap.

Not sure what you mean by "a bit high". It may be the angle and the shadow of the picture. Anyway, it rides nice, stiff frame, nice climber, very steady on the down hill. BTW, love your collection.

Never been all that into mountain bikes but at $20 I couldn't pass it up. 1987 Trek 800 Antelope with Suntour components. It cleaned up nicely and the handlebars will need to go. Should be a fun project.

Nice adaptation of a nice bike JJpistols. I did something similar to a Stumpjumper, and love the bike.

Nice bike!

And without question, vintage mountain bikes make the most practical bikes for riding in town.

Until I saw this post, I completely forgot about the 1988 Trek 850-- actually, pair of 1988 Trek 850s-- that I have in storage! **

They look just like this, and will one day be converted into a pair of touring bikes.











** Although technically, I forgot about them on the other vintage mountain bike thread.

thank you - it is a terrific bike for getting around town - decent speed and a plush ride - I'm considering the Origin 8 dropbar ends for it now, and hope to add a Brooks soon

thanks - rides nice on the street but not afraid to jump a curb or two, or run a crusty alley shortcut

Here's mine, a 1994 Novara Aspen from REI :




The tires are a new set of Schwalbe Kojaks that I like a LOT! It looks like all the elastic has died in my seat pack. :-(

The wooden kick stand is my attempt at going "green". ;-)

can anyone help with a vintage ID? specialized stumpjumper comp, rigid, all red with blue lettering (not flat red, but maybe metallic red), XT components. thinking of buying it, but so for I've only seen a terrible photo on the interwebs. I'm thinking early 90's? I can't find old specialized catalogues anywhere.

I'm also looking at an 89 cannondale sm2000 with the blue and white paint scheme, should anyone weigh in on this conflict as well.

thanks,
Pat
