    Gouda...did you end up having to use any spacers with the crank to get the chain-ring to clear? I'm unsure because my GXP BB doesn't have the ablility to add spacers like the shimano cranks do. I still haven't ordered my chainring, but wondering if i should play it safe and go 28t.....

    My First-ever Build: Yelli Screamy

    My First-ever Build: Yelli Screamy

    Up hell or up a hill?

    Either way I am used to it. My previous bike was 1x so I've been on this type of setup for awhile. I would never go back to anything else.

    I call it 'uphell' lol. Still contemplating on 2x for the sake of versatility since I bike both on pavement and trail (ie I don't bring my bike in a rack/car). Im currently running in 3x8 BTW.

    My First-ever Build: Yelli Screamy

    I would AT LEAST go 2x10. What kind of trails do you ride? I would consider stuff I ride to be at least a little bit technical and steepish and there aren't many times (maybe 1x a ride) where I wish I had lower gearing.

    You could always try out a 1x setup by using the middle ring on your current setup.

    Yes, did it but tiring.

    I might try 39-26 SRAM with a 42t from oneup or wolftooth.

    Still waiting for a medium ano green YS...

    My First-ever Build: Yelli Screamy

    Here are the long awaited 'vanity' shots. Sorry for the wait.... we've had some wildfires VERY close to home and it hasn't been my top priority to snap pics of the bike.

    Fire smoke for proof:


    Rear wheel, hub, brakes, etc:


    Cassette, derailleur, etc:


    30T Wolftooth and a little bling:


    Front wheel, hub, Pike, and frame shot:


    And a similar shot from the top:


    And proof that I ride it

    My First-ever Build: Yelli Screamy

    I'm heading out again tomorrow to do my typical 13 mile loop. I've put about 40 miles on this thing so far and I absolutely love it. It climbs just as well as my less slack 29er and just BOMBS hills and eats up the chunk like it's no ones business.

    My First-ever Build: Yelli Screamy

    The only time I ride it on the pavement is to the trail, which is uphill so I am in a relatively low gear. I've never ridden in the 11T... ever.

    Thanks. I love the black n blue combo. I was pleasantly surprised that different companies 'blue' colors matched.

    How are you liking your YS?

    I'm trying to decided whether or not to build a Yelli Screamy. It will be my first build and I'm trying to figure out what the total cost would be. If I purchased the the component package below (see url), does anyone see any compatibility issues with the Yelli frame? Does $400 seem like a good value for the components I'd be getting?

    Thanks.

    Have you shopped around? I haven't priced all this stuff since I built my Yelli 2 years ago but thought that better deals may be available?

    The issue with the crankset below is whether the 36T will clear the stay, don't know.

    Two links below are like $170 total. I have seen jenson have ridiculous deals on shifters and dearileuers. Maybe $400 is what it all costs, it all starts adding up quickly...

    The 36t may take 2 (2mm?) spacers for a 36t to clear depending on what crank you use. It will probably work though. My Slx did with 2 spacers. I would just stay diligent and watch for deals. I'm not sure if that package you mentioned is a great deal or not. The cost adds up quickly. What is your total budget?

    jensonusa has some nice prices on OE cranksets. u can get an OE slx of $100. if OE is okay for you then check their site for OE shifters and mechs. when I buit up my Yelli I think I got the OE shifter for $20 or less and very low prices on the deraileur.
