    My Yelli Update

    Well I have had my Yelli now for a few years and have recently switched from a 100mm fork to a 140 Added some new Crampon pedals, RF NW 30t chainring. And have a Oneup 40t on order.

    I just built up a Transition Bandit 29 over the winter for a FS rig and love it but I took my Yelli out this past weekend and forgot how freaknMy Yelli Update-photo-mar-08-3-13-14-pm.jpgMy Yelli Update-photo-mar-08-11-14-50-am.jpgMy Yelli Update-photo-mar-08-11-43-34-am.jpg fun it is to ride!

    Did you notice any significant difference in handling going from 100 to 140mm fork?

    This. It does slow the steering down ever so slightly in the tight stuff, but not very much and SO worth it.

    I honestly haven't noticed any negative effects on steering. I just feel so much more confident going down and in the rough stuff. Definitely recommend it. I had a 100 for 2 yrs and it was find but the 140 really made the yelli come to life.
