    ^ really nice.

    How did you remove the decals?

    What's your gear ratio and how do you keep the chain tensioned?

    yup but not with perfect results.

    Gearing is 34:19, the chain was new in that shot, have now added a Surly Singulator.


    See my post history for more info on these.

    @yrg they do the job for my riding which is rooty hilly xc and st in forests, no rocks (Surrey, UK). I'll likely put a Ron on the front too. I usually put a mud tyre like a Maxxis Beaver on the back in winter.

    I buy Schwalbe because they go up easily tubeless on my Stans rims, though I've not tried the 2013 models yet, which are a but tighter.

    Those are 2.25s on Stans Arch Ex. I tried 2.35 Hans Dampfs which are very grippy but a bit heavy for our faster rides, and a 2.35 Racing Ralph - not grippy enough.

    I find 2.35 tyres deaden the trail feel a little, I don't need that with a sus fork so prefer the 2.25s.

    Gotten it out 2X so far. One was a quick jaunt on the local loop just to get a feel for it. It was fun. Second ride I took the time to install my new LEV seat post, and got the bike truly opened up on some extended descents with plenty of corners. WOW.

    I was skeptical but this bike is making me a believer of the Yelli hype - it's well deserved. I haven't had this much fun since my last proper 26" f/s rig, it's that much fun. I can't wait to get it further into the woods where the trails are epic and a lot more technical. I'm going for a shorter stem, and I'll install another Hans Dampf 2.35 on the rear. I ran through the lil' Maxxis IKON 2.1 a couple of times on the ride today. OOPS!

    I'm going to take the time to post a full review complete with build data. If I could nit pick two items it would be the super tight clearance w/ a 2X crank and what I think is an over exaggerated sloping top tube. My 38/26 XT crank barely fits the bike - so far it's a non issue but when I missed part of a log ride today it made me think about bending the chain ring and gouging the frame. This did not happen so I'm happy. I'm going to research fitting a 36t chain ring on this crank.

    My thoughts on the top tube and stand over on the bike lead me to cringe at my fairly long seat height. At 79 cm, my seat height looks a little high on most L/19" frames but on the Yelli it looks ridiculous. I say this bike really calls out for an adjustable seat post not only for the obvious performance reasons but also to calm the appearance of what, at first glance, appears to be an ill fitting bike. Personally I don't get concerned about stand over height on bikes. I'd rather have a second bottle cage and less seat post out of the frame. I suppose the cable routing isn't perfect either - how about at least one more cable guide on the frame? With a cable actuated seat post I had to piggy back the seat post cable to my other control's housing. Not a huge deal really but this would help clean up the frame and build.

    Aside from those items - probably from a VERY XC point of view I'm aware, the bike is nearly flawless. I can't imagine a bike handling better than this. Canfield Bros really hit a home run with this frame... I'm gushing. It's been awhile since I've literally LAUGHED hysterically after the downhills like that. Thank YOU Canfield crew, this is what mountain biking is about!
    My one says BRAP!

    My LBS Owner just build a yelli screamy for his wife. So we took mine out and got some awesome pics on a new trail. That orange makes me so jealous. Enjoy!





    His logo on the fork leg










    This was a ond broken house and they built the ramp thru the window.. Big thanks to progressive trail design.


    Also.. what do you guys think of painting in the C and eyes black on the logo? I think it would really change the look of the logo.

    That's how the old headtube badge looked before they cut out the C and the eyes on the new style.

    First ride was today, got to spend a couple hours on it on my lunch break. Believe the hype. This is a really, really fun bike. Super playful and poppy but also loves to be ridden wide open.

    The trace feels pretty good but I'm sure it's still breaking in so I'll reserve full judgement for a little bit now. It feels nice and stiff and pretty plush once it's into it's travel, it is still a little sticky off the top which I'm guessing will go away shortly. I ran it in the 140 setting for that first ride and it felt really good like that, I may just keep it in that setting.

    2013 version of my yelli screamy.
    When i builti last summer i was going for a cheap build as it would be a "second bike". Ended up using that bike almost all the time, it can go everywhere my Canfield One first gen can go!
    S this summer im upgrading it slowly

    From the start i had a -1.5 deg angleset on it..
    Upgraded bars/stem, derailleur, cranks are on their way.
    If it all goes well a lighter wheelset before the end of the season.

    140 has been my favorite so far.

    Just realised I never posted any photos of my Yelli in the 1-dot-something years I've owned it... so here are some photos before I'm forced to part with it. Shiny 'n' clean and also in its local habitat... A Yelli with a Fox 34 150/120 Talas is seriously sick!

    I love'em. For my style and terrain (Hong Kong has everything... rocks, roots, sand, clay, concrete!)... much better than the Ardents that used to be there.

    No experience of those tyres, though your trails don't look a million miles away from the ones in Hong Kong...

    How much do you lean the bike over when cornering hard?? I found that unless I'm getting a lot of lean the grip is not amazing. lean it over and the psycho genius is amazing. just my observations..

    Whilst they are certainly no XC tyre, I did personally find them faster rolling than 2.4 Ardents. They were also a lot more predictable/secure on tonnes of off-camber stuff I get here in Hongkers.

    Re: Yelli Screamy Photo Thread

    Im riding 650b Hans Dampf's on mine in Western PA.

    They roll pretty well for a big knobby. Excellent grip in the corners on dry hardpack or if its damp after a rain. No problem getting up steep climbs. Excellent braking grip.

    If they have any weakness id say they dont hook up on wet roots & rocks as well as Id like, but thats my experience. Someone else might disagree

    No moss...

    What are your thoughts on your 650b Yelli setup so far?

    Im about to take the plunge for an AM enve set but keep going back and forth between 650b and 29er for my yelli. Your opinion would be helpful.

    In the local Enduro race this weekend. The Yelli is a great bike for the sprints and pedal heavy sections of the course, but definitely held it's own when things pointed downhill.

    I just wish they had different dropouts to allow for SS without having to run a tensioner or eccentric setup. Maybe the next generation. I know that I'm 100% sold on the geometry.

    I used to want this, then I ran SS with a Surly Singulator, it works fine and within a few minutes I'd forgotten about it.

    That's a badass setup. Please tell me what bags those are--model names or whatever would be great!

    Haven't taken the yelli out on a major trip yet but going to soon. You happy with it for bikepacking purposes?

    They are custom bags by Porcelain Rocket, which is one guy, Scott Felter, up in Canada. The frame bag was built based on a paper template I sent Scott. The other two bags are standard, except that I got to pick the color.

    It performed fine, this weekend. I think it will be great. I swapped the dropper seatpost for a rigid one - a requirement of the rear bag - and I will be swapping the 1x10 for a triple drivetrain before I head to the Colorado Trail in a few weeks. I had to put a narrower tire on the rear, so that it will clear the front derailleur; Maxxis Ardent 2.25 UST. I'm running a Schwalbe Hans Dampf 2.35 up front, Snake-Skin, TL-ready and the softer compound, can't remember if it's Pacestar or Trailstar. I did notice a lot more fork dive and fork sag with the front bag, will have to up the air pressure.

    Damn, he's got a 2-3 month waiting list

    I can't imagine why you would get rid of them, but please contact me if you end up wanting to sell yours!

    The frame bag wouldn't fit any size but XL very well. I did order them quite a while ago, and they were worth the wait. I'd recommend Scott and his bags. They are very well designed and built, and you can see the results of good design and lots of experience in them.

    Here is my black chrome Yelli. I still have a few more tweaks, but so far I am loving it. After a year + on a single speed Nimble 9 it's a nice change of pace.

    That is a pretty bike, but, is your seatpost not in line with your seat tube? How much insertion do you have in the frame?

    Good eye. The post is slightly bent. I have about 4" in the frame. It's a temporary solution until I get my HiLo back from X-Fusion.

    Right on! Sorry for the peanut gallery comment. I was envisioning the frame buckling at the seat / top / stay junction.

    Yelli Screamy Photo Thread-dscn6751.jpg

    Latest iteration of my Yelli. Scrapped the white fork, lost the FD, freshened the grips...

    I went with a SID RCT 120mm 51mm offset fork this time. If it was possible for this bike to handle better than it did, this was the solution. There is something about a bike's "trail" that makes it steer with your eyes and hips.

    This is a bold statement: this is hands down my favorite bike I've ever owned!

    slightly bent is a short step away from catastrophic failure. Spend $50 and get a new one. Not trying to be a dick but it's a whole lot cheaper than puncturing a leg artery. Also sell that HiLo and get something that works, these frames seem to demand an adjustable post.

    @plume black is the colour for me too, I've also gone 'murdered out' (almost) and rubbed the decals off too. Will get some fresher pics.

    I took my Yelli to BikePark Wales | Bike Park Wales | Mountain Biking Wales last weekend, it was perfect on the reds and blues (I didn't ride any blacks there yet).

    Agreed re steering with the hips, that's where the benefit of the shorter chainstays kicks in IMO.

    I have another aluminum post laying around that I would use. I know using the ti post is a bit of a risk. Like I said it is a very temporary solution. I really prefer the ride of the ti. The HiLo works great. I have had it for over a year with only a single issue. It developed a bit of sag when I put my weight on it. With this frame unlike the Nimble 9 it was on I need every bit of post I have in the frame. X-Fusion was great to work with. I sent it back, and they are fixing it under warranty. It will be back in my hands on Monday.

    Ha! I have been looking at a KS. Much cleaner cable routing. It's hard to justify a Lev when the HiLo works so well.

    Well.... got the Yelli built up last night. I am smitten.

    Meet "Alberta." Named for the girl mascot of my alma mater, whose colors happen to be orange and blue.







    Shake down ride today, big ride tomorrow.

    I have to get a pic later with her sibling, my Nimble 9.

    Nice! Thomson dropper will be my next purchase, but it'll be a while. Looks sweet on your frame.

    Is that a size Small? Having trouble digging up a photo of one. With the TT that low (sweet! I need standover) a lot of the ones that I see and think are smalls are actually mediums. Been through this thread a coupld of times in the past as well... could have missed seeing a small, but don't think so.

    THIS is what you want/need. Just swallow the big hoop pill and do it!

    I will say this, they currently have all the colors in the small... and once they sell out (they will) I would guess it'll be another few months before they get any more in...

    Will have to post a review (specifically of how this bike compares to my Nimble 9) later... I was very surprised how different the two bikes are.

    Definitely looking forward to your comparison. It is tough to choose between such well specc'd frames.

    I think I'd like to at least rub off the top tube graphics. What did you use? I've heard rumors and mutterings of nail polish remover? People have knocked my choice of fork but for me the SID is nice. I'd love to see one with a Pike though. If I can't swing an entirely new bike for 2014 which might be really likely now maybe I'll try a 140mm fork on this bike, keep the SID for "racing" days.

    The top tube graphics on mine started to come off with Deep Woods Off (rubbed my leg on the top tube). I took the rest off with nail polish remover.

    It makes sense to me, I'm running a Rev at 120mm, the bottom end of the Rev's travel options. I don't need more travel so I may as well try and find a lighter fork for 120mm.

    Also my Revs were stuck at 100mm for a while, the bike handled fine for my use.

    Also my Revs were stuck at 100mm for a while, the bike handled fine for my use.
    Yeah I've owned several Revelations, always a nice fork for me. The SID feels plush through all of it's travel and I was able to find a 51mm offset version which really sealed the decision for me.

    I also like the red frame. That location looks familiar FatTire but I can't place it... WNC?
