Default my old fat

number is 1051Y1L. I know the Y is Yo Eddy, and the L is Large though i thought it was a XL. Is 105 the frame number and 91 the year?

Any way, this bike saw 9 or 10 race seasons without any issues ever. Went through the 12 hours of Ivor, a couple of 24 hours of Canaan. A couple massenutten woo has, and several point series. Now it just goes rideing with the family and a few trails as we both have gotten up in age.

I built this while I worked in a bike shop part time for to support my bikeing as well as working a full time job elsewhere.

This bike is bullet proof as I weighed 290 when i race. I am 6'5'' and never had a failure. Still get looks today.
  • Built Judy XC. I took the down hill crown. The XC legs for the lower travel. Did a double cartridge instead from white industries i think. Replace the elastimers with the springs.
  • All XTR shifters and derailers.
  • Rims are hand built by me. Mavic 217 ceramic with 14 gauge laced 4 cross for streagth. Still true to this day. Xt rear hub and Phil wood front. xt cassette
  • Cooks Bros E crank
  • Onza brakes
  • Chris King head set.
  • Kore stem, rigle seat post, serfas ti and kevlar seat. Scott carbor fiber bars (won them of a prize table, People dared me to try them and I never had a problemk)
  • shimano clippless pedals.
  • Every bolt is Ti.
Its just full of old school goodness.

Just hard to believe how much hell the bike and I went though. I remember the 12 hours of ivor where everyones bike was so gummed up with mud that none would shift. We all had pick a gear and BMX it through the trails. We unhooked derailers and everything and shortened the cains and picked a gear we wanted, and thats all you had. We did everything we could cause someone had to be on the track.
