    Mine was Bassboat blue too, until it flaked off. It was all grey underneath. I just flaked the rest off and took the decals that came off with the blue coat and just reapplied them. Underneath the paint was a Yeti-made frame, which was what made it a real bike that I kept for nearly a decade and put well over 15k miles on. Some trails I was riding needed real brakes for riding down often wet trails, and that's what got me to shop for a modern bike. The guy who bought it from me picked up the mtb bug seriously hardcore. He went from blacksmithing to mtn bike frame building (starting as an apprentice under Carl at Vicious Cycles), racing, single speeding, traveling cross country on mtb tours, and more. I rode with him for one season and haven't talked with him since, but have been following his FB updates. Haven't checked out what he's been up to in a while, but it appears he's just getting himself deeper into what he's been doing, even getting lessons from legends like Frank the Welder.

    There's a sub forum called "How To". I think I learned it from a post in there, which explains it way better than I could.

    Mikie gives a quick explanation in the first post of this thread...

    I think the file size limit is 3 MB. I usually have to shrink my pics before I upload.
