That bike was set up for speed record riding, you know charging down a ski slope at mach 11. Although back in the day chainrings with tooth counts in the mid sixties were not uncommon.bballe336 said:wow. that yeti is so cool. where chainrings like that ever popular?
Jimmy Deaton ran some big rings.
I've always liked that last picture. I remember when it first came out, even though I was a full on XC head back then. I guess Jimmy was ahead of his time, check out the knee gaskets and skate helmet.
I think this bike was also for a special event, either Kamikaze or maybe a speed record -- is that snow on the rear tire?
Edited b/c I forgot the tags.
