    Aqua fade Wicked Lite

    Thanks for all the comments! I think you're right about the chain stays and seat stays on Wicked Lites, I believe they have a smaller diameter. Wicked Lites were designed to be more forgiving and with a slightly a longer wheelbase than the YO's. The one I had rode like it was on a rail, and...

    WTB: 26.4 mtb seatpost for a 91' monster fat

    I've seen Sakae TCO's (tall cool one) around in 26.4, pretty common on Fat builds, particularly Monster's. Occasionally Suntour XC Pro's in 26.4 pop up on EBay, thats a nice post. If you don't mind using a seat post shim, you could go with a 25.4mm post and step up to a 26.4. I did that with a...

    Aqua fade Wicked Lite

    I now own the bike, bought it from the original poster as a complete bike with full XTR M900 and a Mag 21. There's a few odd details about it, like the 29.4 seat post which isn't to Wicked Lite spec. The serial # is CC 17 1051. And I believe the 17 is the size, center of bottom bracket to...

    Yo Fork Question

    A couple of years ago I purchased a very nice and pristine Yo Eddy fork with a 1" threaded steerer and planned on putting it on my '91 Monster in a future restore. The other day I ran across Rody's thread that described the different forks and he said suspension corrected BOI forks should be...

    WTB Sppedmaster Brakes...Help!

    I purchased these on Ebay a few months back, received a bag of parts. For the life of me I can't find any pics of this particular model of WTB brakes. I think they are a later model, I've seen the ones with a linear spring that is positioned on the front. These appear to be completely different...

    Ringle Stem

    Does anyone have experiences with Ringle Stems as far as reliability or failures? The single bolt on the steerer tube clamp concerns me. I'm worried about over tightening it and snapping something or under tightening it and having it move. Does anyone know the correct torque? It's a cool...

    How much would you pay for a Yo?

    I'm beginning the hunt for Yo frame and fork or a complete bike. Ideally I'd like to find a nice pristine frame and fork or complete bike that needs some work or parts swap. I don't want to strike at the first one I see, and have already passed on a few, but I'm curious what the going rate...

    Hi all, I have a 91 Monster and I'm looking for a rigid fork. I'm looking for a Yo type, not the original tange strut and I know my Monster wasn't designed for suspension. The questions are: 1. Can a Yo fork work on Monster, is the length and rake the same for non suspension Fat frames? 2...
