yes such a Flite I've been looking and recently discovered by chance on ebay.






The bike is almost finished, I'm waiting for blue grips (ODI or Yeti) and also I'm still looking for Michelin Wildgripper in 2.1 width.

As already mentioned I want no colored parts as Ringle on this bike (for riding you always have to fall back on the old rated parts such xt, suntour, campa).

I thrown away the original plan to go with suntour xc pro, now are xt 720 and I'm happy



There are also two other bikes (Merlin, Ritchey) which are waiting to get ready, so I've rebuilt a couple of my bikes. The result is two beautiful YO Eddys, Grello and Aqufade with parts that I like.

Grello now with full XTR M900 series






And Aqua Fade with XT 732 series








...unfortunately no right weather for biking

Awesome build. Saddle should be black. Enough colors in the frame.

I enjoyed this thread as much as your others. I have learned not to say what I like or don't like of your builds since it will probably change a few times before the end of the week. Another nice build.

Super nice!

I'll agree with some of the others and say the frame can do its own talking color-wise. Black grips and saddles would be sano.

Thanks alls for feedback



But mates why you do not like the saddle? I like it (I had to have something colorful)






The grips ...yes they are so crap but saw in the pics very well, where I bought them (they are just a temporary solution)








THIS is my dream bike





.....and I know we all love it

A few small changes ... and I like it more and more

I've been waiting for such a cute stem a long time (it's just 10cm long)



The result is a sweet yo eddy in aqua fade

Hi Nader,

has become a real beauty, the Yo Eddy. Perfectly matched Syncros parts. Now the bike must only be moved appropriately. I wonder, however, what comes next from you.

Wish you a lot of fun with your Yo Eddy

Many greetings towards Hamburg

Helmut

This is indeed a stunning bike ! My wife Hannah owned an aqua fade yo. We both wish she never sold it.

I think yours looks much better with the black saddle. The blue was too tacky and bright. Now with black it looks very smart !

Where are the decals from. Are they from the guy in Scotland? And di you clear coat over them ?
