    ^ 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.

    Put a couple of upgrades on today. Got rid of my slx shifters for some xt ispec and also got a ks eten dropper post. Stopping to lower my seat manually was VERY annoying

    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!

    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

    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.
