The YETI 25th Anniversary 575...HELLOOOO NURSE!!!

This beautiful machine is the very limited edition, YETI 25th Anniversary 575! YETI turned 25 this year and to celebrate this wonderful company's existence they released a 25th Anniversary bike. They chose the 575, a legend in the Mountain Bike world. The 575 also happens to be YETI's top selling model so the choice to make this their anniversary bike was easy. I mentioned the words "limited edition" earlier because YETI is only making 250 of these bad boys worldwide!!! UNO Bicycle Studio is very lucky to get even one of these! We were able to procure #246 of 250! Yikes, we barely made it! Needless to say the bike will surely become a collectors edition and highly sought after. Now just a quick history lesson, in the mid to late eighties YETI exploded onto the professional mountain bike pro racing scene and flew the colors of Turquoise and Yellow. The bikes stood out and soon had a pretty large cult following. The anniversary bike you see here was finished in these colors to commemorate their past, coupled with all the latest technology of today! Old School meets New School, so to speak! They even put the original YETI font on the downtube of the bike. Make no mistake, this has all the latest parts on this beast but brings back the look of YETI's of the past. The bike also has some very cool "custom" elements to it as well. YETI teamed with Chris King to do custom Turquoise headset and bottom bracket! Along with that, FOX Racing custom painted the fork in Turquoise to match. You cannot get a Fox fork with this paint anywhere else! The bike also has the brand spankin' new Shimano XT 10 speed group to keep you happy shifting all the way down the trail! DT SWISS X1800 wheels, with SCHWALBE FAT ALBERT tires. The bike even has a custom WTB DEVO seat with YETI 25th Anniversary graphics! I could go on...but check out YETI's website to read more, and see more too! We (me), here at the Studio are super stoked to have this unbelievable bike in our possession, come on in and check it out...drooling is free! Here are some more pics of the bike. Enjoy.
