1991 Yeti Ultimate

The Ultimate started as a Mountain Bike Action project bike to build the "Ultimate" bike.   I remember following the build up of the bike in the pages of the magazine.  When the project was finished, Yeti decided to market copies of the bike.  The publicity given to the bike really opened the floodgates of elevated chain stay bikes.   This particular bike was very lightly used and has all the original parts and includes all the original catalogs and paper work for the bike.
