I want a Yeti !!!shiftone!

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I want a Yeti !!!shiftone!

I've seen three of 'em in a week now. FYI: Yeti's HQ is near where I was riding.

So I'm at the top of the climb and about to turn around. One guy blows right, the other stops -- he's turning around too. I asked him when Yeti stopped making road bikes and he says, "Oh, we've never made them." "We?!" Yeah, he's the frame builder and the guy who blew by is the owner.

Yeti makes great mt bikes!

He tells me that they only build road and cx for their sponsored riders There's about 20 of 'em total. I told him I'm gonna win the lotto and force him to build me a Ti

So, that was tonight's ride in the front range hills. Hope you got out for a spin.

Not quite true, they were available for sale for many years. In fact, I own one and don't recall being sponsored by Yeti at any point. If you'd like a 51 (53.5 cm top tube) in the team colors, I have a 2003 that's barely used.
