Jenya YETI Lawwill DH-4 (added January 09)
I saw posted pics of lawwils on 'yetifan'. So Here`s mine Lawwill 4 `98 with Troy Lee grafics.
While getting this frame I decided to try the old FS bike. This suspension type is relly plush (when you got sitable spring). And I really liked it. Frame size suits me excellent. So I use it everyweek for hard-trailriding. There was a big problem to get rear Hope C2 brake with calliper fitting standard 43mm between centers of the holes. After 4 month of mailing everywhere in the world I`ve found it in Australia (local trikes shop). This bike has custom painted rear Mavic 521 rim and special old-school yellow gear cables. Fork is Magura Laurin 130.
It rocks hard Russian winter trails)
Have a nice rides, - Jenya

Matt’s Lawwill DH-9 (Added June 08)
My name is Matt. I'm from Indiana, USA. The DH-9 was a 2003 and I had to sell it for financial reasons, but it was probably the sweetest bike I've ever owned. I had it built up with SRAM X.0, Raceface Cranks, MRP Guide, Marzocchi 888, Chris King Steelset, White Industries Hubs, Sun Rims, Hayes Brakes,...Good times. I built the bike to be bombproof. It weighed around 48lbs, if I recall. I'll try to find other pictures but I'm not sure if I have any left.
Dale Yeti DH-9 2004 (Added June 08)
Here is my DH rig, it`s 2nd hand and i`ve owned it for about 2yrs now. unfortunately its little rough round some of the edges (fixed mech-hanger, paint job, some parts) but still rocks with the best of them..
04 M DH9 with Bomber 200mm 888`s up front, Hadley DH hubs on Mavic 729 rims running Hope M4 front, C2 rear brakes with Raceface chainset and Sram X9 in sink with a trusty MRP Device.
Neil ex Team Lawwill DH-4 (Added May 08)
Heres an updated picture of the lawwill 4 frame you sold me a few years ago (and is currently on your website as a frame hanging from my ceiling)
I was fortunate enough to get hold of some Airlines pretty cheap so it ecouraged me to build the frame up as a play bike... Psssst! Psssst! Weeeeeeee!!!!
Adam’s Yeti DH-9(Added March 08)
Fully rebuilt and repainted with custom Yetifan decal kit.
Dustin YETI Lawwill 6(Added March 08)
I just bought this from a small bike shop in california, where it had been sitting for years and years. i'm not sure what year it is and they didn't know much about it except that it was raced by a female. on the bike it reads "Julz Rulz" I'm not sure if that might be referring to Julie ... it is a smaller bike i think maybe 15" from center of crank to top of seat tube? anyways its a very clean piece of yeti history hope you can add it to your sweet site! and any info on this bike would be appreciated. thanks Dustin
Russells YETI Lawwill DH-4(added March 08)
Here,s my new lawwill 4, got it well cheap off ebay. Ive managed to track down 1 ringle HED rim, once i get another which will probably take years i will stick em on.

Sven’s YETI Lawwill 4(added November 07)
here´s my yeti, one of the early Lawwill 4´s. Bought in Germany with original yellow rims from hed and boxxer 152.
Niall’s YETI DH-9 (added October 2007)
Thought i would share a few pics of my new DH9 courtesy of ebay although i have changed most of the parts for my own preference. I think this will mean my 303 will be up for sale soon as i seemed to pick my tubed Lawwill to ride the majority of the time and will now probably use the mono. Tough decision though.
Niall’s YETI DH-9 (added September 07)
DH9 in Red. The Lawwill is still a tempting ride. Last ridden at the last Dragon race at Mynydd Du where it was superb.
Andrew’s Yeti Lawwill 97/98 added August 2007
Andy from the West Midlands in the UK, sent in these pictures of this recently finished Yeti Lawwill. From 97/98.
Looks amazing, Dont yout hink?
Japanene YETI DH-8 (added July 2007)
My YETI DH-8 from Japan.
Nick’s Yeti Lawwill - from the Brochure- added June 2007
This is bike no 1, the one that is in the 1997 Yeti catalogue (but built ’96). It showed at the Anaheim show and is basically a new bike. Mert Lawill now works with geoff ringle in their new venture building parts for Indian motorcycles. When I negotiated a deal with Geoff for the ARC, I negotiated with Mert for the Lawill 4 too. This ose won’t be going as it fits mefine as a 16”. Basically the spec reads as it does in the back of the 97 catalogues, full 1996 XTR. But you’ll also notice the only laid back moby post in existence. The 4 as you know had stops for a f/mech, to make it ridable XC, but mert needed a bit more reach. This is the first ‘modern’ DH machine, so it blows the old AS away.
Michaels YETi DH-8 added July 2007
Here is one of my YETI's. The Lawwill 8 is my fastest YETI (downhill, uphill is slow and a little bit exhausting). Lacation: Germany Frankfurt Mountains: Taunus
Thomas’s Yeti DH-9 added May 2007 (2001 model)

Guillaume’s DH-9- added May 2007
This DH-9 is an 03 model, which i bought second hand. It is equipped with a manitou swinger 6 way, marzocchi's 888 with risse flat crowns, hayes barkes, mavic rims and some raceface components. It's an amazing bike ! best regards from France,
Paul’s Yeti Lawwill 8
Thought it was about time I sent you some pics of my DH8 to post up on the web site. These are three years old now which means it looks about the same as when I rode it round the MBR route at Coedy at the tribe meet that year (2003).
It's only slightly different now, just different bars, stem and saddle.
The only major difference now is I managed to get a Pro Deluxe shock for it from ebay.
The bike itself is a late model '99 with DKG shock linkage, '01 Boxxers, Ringle/mavic wheels, XTR mech and shifter, Hayes Mag brakes (note only 6" rear disk!), Raceface cranks and BB, Ringle Moby seat post and Slamma Jamma headset.
It's a sweet ride even though it's starting to get a bit old now, but still gets the respect out on the trails.
I got the opportunity to take it out to Les Gets last year where I think it found it's spiritual home. Lawwills rule! Paul
Matt’s DH-9 Lawwill
It's got the Dorados up top a Vanilla out back (It's actually a really good shock). New SRAM x9 gears, hope m4 brakes, Saint cranks with blackspire guide, Easton monkeylite bars, ringle post and Yeti saddle,721 mavic wheels. It's a fantastic dh bike, I'm ripping up the local track most nights now. Will eventually fit 40's ready for when I can afford a 303.
Dave’s DH-9 - added April 07 (2005 Model)
I bought the frame last year (2006) on its own and had it completely stripped & resprayed by Argos Racing in Bristol (UK). The guy’s name that did it was Mark and trust me by saying, the paint job is 110% immaculate (I would recommend these guys to anyone).
I designed the layout and chose colours matching to my forks, then kitted this beauty out with the following:
- Yeti DH (2005) Customized Paint with Fox Vanilla Rear Shock, upfront it has Manitou Dorado MRD Forks (2005) with MRD bolt on Stem
- Race Face Diabolus Bars
- Hadley Hubs
- Sun MTX Rims with DT Spokes and Maxxis High Roller 2.5 (Front & Rear)
- Shimano Dura Ace Rear Cassette with Shimano Dura Ace Rear Mech & Shimano Dura Ace Chain shifted with Shimano XT Shifter
- E Thirteen Chain Device on Race Face Evolve DH Crankset with Race Face Evolve DH BB & E Thirteen 40T Chain Ring
- Crank Brothers 5050 Pedals .
- Hayes HFX-9 Disk Breaks (203mm Front & Rear)
- Thompson Elite Seat Post, Hope Headset, Hope Seat Clamp & Funn Saddle
I have already taken my pride and joy to the Alps for a lovely 11 days and it’s by far the best DH bike that I have ever ridden.
Well done to everyone at YETI. I was so impressed with the bike that I also bought myself a YETI DJ. I will send some pictures soon once I’ve done it up. Many thanks, Dave
Tims 2 Lawwills
Tim sent this picture of His Lawwill's, right is his brand new DH9, he's still waiting on a few parts.
Left is his Lawwill 6, its in bits at the moment, but a rebuild is in the pipeline.
Just thought I would send in a pic of my new DH-9. It is set up with a Dorado, Hussfelt cranks, Blackspire chainguide, RazorRock hubs, Hayes brakes, Azonic bars, and SRAM shifting
He's just finished building it, note the front mech and 3 Chain rings!!
Brads Yeti Lawwill DH9
Its running Marzocchi Shivers and also has a Razor Rock HotRod kit.
Brad has also Fitted a Romic to his DH9, he says it invloves removing some material but not much, so the bike will not loose any strength
Here is some pics of my new ride. I think its got a whole lot more style than the Team models that you have been flashing ;-)
Spec: Boxxer Team with Goldtec crwn/stroke Hope 205mm discs XTR MRP Goldtec/Hadly with tubeless Mavic D321 and Michelins Ti-spring Ti/mag V12 pedals Matching saddle (!) Easton Scandium bars, RF Steelset and Thomson seatpost finishing the deal.Just over 18,5kg
Leon sent this picture of his recently finished Lawwill.
I think you'll agree the forks look the dog's, work nice too! Trouble is the back end is just so smooth and reacts to everything that it kinda makes you long for a front end that's as good. Rest of the bike as you can see is built up with XTR, MRP, Mavic and Hope. Might have to try 8-speed though the gears get a bit skippy now and then.
Anyway, keep spreadin the word. This is one happy yetifan
Ichiro Iijima's Yeti Lawwill

Stuart's Almost a Yeti Lawwill
Well, its not quite a Yeti - more a Schweti with a Schwinn Team rear end. It get used for DH and FR Lite and chugging around my local bike park. Its a great, predictable chassis to build on. It pedals really well and rails the corners. Long Live Yeti!!!
NEED NEW PIC!!
Hey im dropthebreak on your website and i was hoping my bike was worthy of your gallery.Its got a FOX Vanilla DH shock, and its great! Im totally stoked i'm the only one with it on the bike. Both fox and yeti told me it wouldnt fit but the bike shop i deal with can do anything i want!. This custom job was well worth it, it weighs 46 lbs
Tom's Lawwill DH (1995)
i from Mannheim, Germany
I hope you´ll find my Lawwill " worthy " enough to be shown at Yetifan, In the next months the original parts such as Cook cranks, Ringle, King etc in blue will be fixed. I hope i´ll find some HED carbon- rims in yellow !
Think this is one of ( or The first ) Lawwill(s) ever made !!!
Howards Lawwill DH-9
I'm new to the world of Yeti. Just built up my DH9, I think I may be a Yeti convert! I wondered if it's image was worthy of your website?
Can also offer advise to anyone in the UK who has problems getting the parts and finding the people to build up DH9's. In particular the rear hub.... Kind regards Howard. hest
Matt's Custom Yeti Lawwill 6
Pearlescent paint by Spectrum in USA- The guys who paint all new Yeti frames (For now-Yeti want to move it back in house, like in Durango) .
I could write tons of crap about this bike,like, Custom King 12mm rear hub, custom painted this and that, special finish on the 'stickers' on the HED rims (natural carbon of the rims), 3 chain rings, custom Hope rotors, But I don't think I need to write such things, just check out the pictures.

Pim’s 1998 Yeti Lawwill(added & updated 2005)
The frame looks better than before. Works better to, It has new pivot points. Eight needle bearings in the two main pivots, so I break down before the bearings do. Also a stiffer spring, because the original was a bit soft.
so do you like it ? Pim

Ding’s YETI Lawwill (added 2006)
Thought I'd post a couple of photos I just snapped of my Lawwill 4 '97, after I put a new fork and a couple of other new bits on it. The Lawwill is spec'ed with a Fox F100 RLT fork, Ringle Stem, Azonic bars, Hope (stock) rear brake, Magura Marta SL front brake, Grafton cranks, Thomson seatpost, XTR shifter/ derailleurs, Ringle rear hub (stock), DT Swiss front hub, Mavic SUP 117 ceramic rims. Shimano DX pedals Am actually looking for a way to put new rear brake/ hub on as the cassette on the old ringle hub is about to give. I noticed above that Thomas from Germany managed to fit Magura brakes on his Lawwill 4, wonder if there was a way to get in touch with him, could really use some of his input!
Thanks! Ding Singapore
