BOTM: YETI INSPIRED UP - part 1
Andy Kessler - 04-Dec-2017
Our last limited edition
was a in cooperation with ASSOS and was based on the U.P.P.E.R. Now its time for another one based on the NEW U.P.
I have crossed paths a couple of times with YETI Cycles owner Chris Conroy. We both worked at Scott a while ago (ok almost 25 years...). Back then Scott was the owner of the Yeti- and Schwinn brand. YETI was just the coolest brand out there with a couple of legendary riders and great bikes.
I will never forget the car ride I had with the crazy YETI founder John Parker to the downhill race in Kaprun. He was collecting pictures from every speed camera that we passed. The car that we had was a Scott company car and there were some people "not amused" when they got all the bills from the police a couple of weeks later.
Yeti passed trough a couple of hands and brand and product suffered. In 2001 Chris and Steve purchased the brand and repositioned it. Yeti had a very strong comeback and is now again one of the leading brands when it comes to anything with suspension. We share the same design philosophy: building bikes we want to ride.
Here comes the intro video to this BOTM. As mentioned in the video we have produced only 50 framesets. I am pretty sure they will all be gone very fast. So unless we can convince YETI to make another 50 then you better be quick... A bit more info you can find in the "store"
