    I think you're pics aren't working.
  • Pic should be working now?!

    Very nice 8) I'd shorten and maybe re-route the front brake pipe though, you don't want that catching on any branches you're flying past!

    A reroute is not really needed, but a ziptie to hold the hose to the top crowns would probably be a wise choice. Would hold it nicely tucked inside.

    Lovely looking bike though!

    Lovely looking bike, I've always liked Yetis.

    One thing though, that saddle (which is awesome, compliments the frame) - do you not find yourself sliding forward a bit? It looks like it's at a really strange angle, unless thats the pics?
  • Thanks for the comments so far

    I have now tied the front brake hose back to the forks, was going to shorten it but its working fine so don't see the need to, and may well be changing the forks soon so wanted to wait just in case, as I may go for a 160 fork.

    The saddle is slightly tilted forward, haven't found myself slipping off yet, but then i've only ridden her twice, taken me the last few months to build! Just feels more comfortable as is, may change at a later date as i'm hoping to get a layback seatpost

    :D
  • Good work mate, ive done a similar thing myself.

    Always wanted a Hecker but they didnt look as good as i remembered so got a Lapierre instead
  • Couple of new pics as i've changed the forks this weekend for some Marzocchi 55's, also changed the tyres for some Continental Mountain Kings
