Default Yo Eddy 1997 Sapphire Blue

Originally belonging to Sette, I've had time to build this up today. Pretty easy as I just swapped all the kit from my Buck

I love it!

Gotta love that!

i am wondering what you think about the difference between the Buck and Yo.

enjoy,

I went out on the Yo today and have to say it was a really great ride. Climbs like a rocket and just seems to feel 'right' on fast trails. Compared to the Buck Shaver I'd say the ride was quite a bit quicker, but i didn't find it much harsher - i know that's a common comparison between the Yo and the Buck. I've never really ridden a top end steel bike but would liken the acceleration to Aluminum but a lot more forgiving ride - I guess that's the magic of a well built steel bike.

Oh, and the paint does look nice in the sun..
