Yeti has been building the best bikes on the planet since 1985. From their humble beginnings in a California garage to Yeti's new digs in Golden, Co. It has been a great ride for Yeti Bikes.
Yeti started as a labor of love in 1985, when John Parker, a welder who built movie sets in Hollywood, bought some jigs and fixtures from a defunct bicycle factory and applied his craft to making Yeti mountain bike frames. His early days were spent honing his craft in the back of Matt Sweeney's special effects shop.
For more than 15 years, Yeti has been on the forefront of product development and one of the leading innovators in the bicycle industry. Driven by a passion for racing, Team Yeti has produced some legendary race teams that have included the best racers in the sport. "Racing is a critical part of our product development and we will continue to have the best racers in the sport on our products," Conroy said.
Yeti has attracted a worldwide following they refer to as the Tribe. These Yeti freaks are hard-core, bike loving, fanatical devotees who often travel great distances to visit the venerable Yeti factory and meet the people who made their bike. The company's factory is located in Golden, CO.
