Default My 1993 Yo Eddy Restoration

First post here.

I picked up a 1993 Frameset in the fall and set about doing a full bare metal restoration of it. It was originally black so I kept it original. Everything was freshly powder coated and it has a full M900 group. It's like brand new again.

You can see the build thread here:

A dream bike for sure ... will be a blast on the trail when things thaw in the great white north

That looks fantastic! Well done.

Why not the XTR headset?

I was considering it, but I liked the look of the black better than the silver. The Mavic headset is amazing. Easily the most solid felling headset I have had. There is just not play and its so smooth. I was actually planning (and got) a CK headset, but as soon as I tried this out I didn't want to change it.

Thanks all

Stunning build. Particularly like the blue decal vibe. Making me think now.

Well done sir!!

I love the classic all-black scheme. My wicked was all-black for quite a while.

I like the blue Yo-Eddy's too

Enjoy it!

big thumbs up on the mavic head set
this was the bench mark for MTB with their Paris Robuix groupo
sadly the bike is now just a MAVIC bb and crank, Headset, and 231 rims
the rear der gave up the fight against a log, XTR vBrakes and XTR shifters took over too

I really like the traditional all-black plan. My evil was all-black for quite a while.
