Yep my friend, I think it´s time to post some pics ...

All began here ... my beloved Luis turned a dream into reality:



A truly and unique beautiful Yo Eddy in Sparkling banana paint scheme:




First built included an infernal transmission mix ... Lx fd, Campy rd, Action Tec rings, Boone cassete, Rohloff SLT99 chain, Cook´s cranks, Suntour XC Pro levers, Bebop pedals ...








Wheels are King hubs laced with Ti. Spokes to Mavic 117 SUP Ceramic rims; tires are Tioga Psycho kevlar bead; have tried many skewers on it ... T-Gear, Ringlé Holey´s. Salsa flip offs & Twisters ...



I´ve tried some stems ( Oddyssey & Answer ) prior to find the right Salsa one, bar is a Kevlar composite Kestrel, grips changed from Onza to Odi ...







The XC Pro headset changed to a Mavic 315



Brake levers were Dia Compe SS7 with Carbon Works levers and now it has a pair of TTP´s ( Spanish version of Grafton Re-entry´s )






Brakes are Crystal Desing, the only change made was the Windwood Polys ( now with Madison/Aztec )


For intended light use, the wheels, seatpost, cranks, rings & rd are Ringlé/King/Mavic 217 Ceramic wheelset, Syncros, Kooka & XTR M900

Visual comparison,: Yo Eddy fork is 1.125" diameter, so is the seat tube. The BOI is 1.0" diameter, looks closer to the 0.75" diameter seat & chains stays.

I love that paint job, does anyone know the secret formula to the color & sparkles? Would love to replicate it on a Yo.
