    My First-ever Build: Yelli Screamy

    As do I... It's just drastically different... and a rigid.

    My First-ever Build: Yelli Screamy

    Advice needed: I've seen several Revelations floating around online for what I think to be decent prices. What I'm more curious about are the models... do you guys think I should go for the gusto and go with the RCT or is the RL or RLT sufficient for most?

    The one RCT I've seen at a killer price is actually a 2012 Dual Air model with a beefy 20mm thru axle. Not sure how desirable the dual air is anymore though...

    Brake-related question: Looking at the SLX brakes @ blue sky as they sell the shimano adapter with the kit....but in the drop down there are several options....how do I know which one is needed?
    BlueSkyCycling.com - Shimano SLX M675 IceTech Disc Brake w/ Adapter

    Hope you don't mind me posting this on your thread Gouda...let me know if I'm intruding.

    I could care less - this is good info for me too.

    As far as the brakes go... it looks like there's only one option for the rear brake so you should be good to go there. Worst case scenario is that you order the rear brake now and then pickup the adapter you need later. For the front brakes, you need to know what kind of mount you have on your fork - it's either IS (international standard) or post-mount. Do a quick search (or even a Google Image Search) and you'll immediately be able to tell which one you have... assuming you have a fork waiting and ready to install on your bike.

    My build If you set up the crankset/bb right, a 32 or 34 should clear fine, just need to watch the chainline. It's been absolutely bulletproot and the only "issue" I've had was self inflicted... set up tires too soon before a ride, burped the tire and dinged the rim. It's a pretty good ding, but it's been holding a bead just fine over the last year.

    I was thinking of going with XT cranks now, removing the 2x10 crank setup and replacing it with a Wolftooth 32T. For some reason I like the looks of the XT cranks and they weigh a little less than the Zee setup. Only concern right now is setting up the chainline since the XT cranks are originally 2x and I'll be running them 1x.

    Ordered the XT cranks (2x10 that I'll convert to a 1x) and a Cane Creek 40 headset for the tapered headtube / fork. Probably will order a Wolftooth 30T ring and bolts here soon.

    Do you mind if I ask which Cane Creek 40 headset you got? Just want to make sure I get the right one for my upcoming build. Thanks.

    Same here. That's what you need if you're going to run a tapered steerer fork.

    35mm stanchion = stiffer chassis and the damper is supposed to be a lot better. The Pike has been getting great reviews - not that there's anything wrong with the Revelation.
    No moss...

    I was going to order from Merlin in the UK but now I'm hearing horror stories about ordering forks from them - not original packing, dust seals missing, and the steerer tube already being trimmed. Guess I'll have to buck up and pay within the states.

    Depends on the Pike model. The 2014 Pike (all black, black stanchions, Charger damper) is amazing. Older models (gold/silver stanchions, say PIKE on the side) aren't that great. If you can find a new model Pike for just $100 more than a Revelation, definitely go for it.

    Pike are advertised as an AM fork, while the Revelations are a trail fork....i would guess the Pike is meant to take more abuse...depends on what your doing with the yelli though.

    Abuse is a relative term, IMO. One man's abuse is another man's afternoon ride in the park.

    Given that I'm relatively lightweight when geared up and don't bash through things, I am sure the Rev would be fine. There's just something about the Pike that makes the decision tough though. Hard to explain...

    Love that color. Sort of makes me wish I got it. I played it safe with black.

    Both colors look very good. I originally wanted the blue but they were out in my size. Hoping they bring the color back for 2014 colors.
