    How do you like the Loop fork? I'm considering a 120mm version, but a bit concerned about the lack of lockout. I like to stand and mash.

    Paint looks great.

    Its 10x better than the fox float 120 rlc it replaced. If you turn the compression all the way in, you do get a lock-out of sorts, once you set the threshold for your weight or riding style.

    Btw, I like to stand and mash occasionally. With the compression turned in 4 clicks, which is 50%, the slight bob does not hamper my ability or enjoyment either. I only turn the compression full-in when on the streets riding to or from the trailhead.

    First winter ride was muddy and cold but it was so much fun! The YS takes such a beating. I love it.
    Next on the list is some longer travel forks.

    Got mine built up. the night I built it, I'm riding it home from work ( i live in NYC) and I go to stand on the pedals and do a short sprint down my block and my hub goes KAPUT! It's a wtb laser disc lite which seem to be good hubs but have a bit of a history of the clutch spring gadget giving way. WTB is sending me out a new hub body, hopefully that is indeed the problem. IT's also 13 degrees here now (though sunny so I would consider bundling up and hitting some trails!) so I'm getting teased by having this sit here in my living room.

    I'm 6'3" and new to mtb so yes, that is why the steerer is so long right now but I'm probably going to cut it pretty significant'y before ever taking it out and throw a riser bar on there if need be. Still trying to figure out differences between MTB fit and road bike fit. Seems like I definately need to get a setback seatpost on this bike as my knee is WAY in front of the pedal spindle and it just feels awkward right now.

    A setback would probably help a bit with your pedaling position, but overall your cockpit looks very weight-forward, and may not play all that well with the Yelli's short rear end. I understand you're starting off from more of a traditional road / XC mtb style fit on the Yelli, and I think it would feel a little off balance. It'll be a transition for you coming from a road background, but consider tightening up your cockpit for a more upright position. IMO that's what the Yelli is designed for. If you scroll through the photos in this thread, you'll see that the majority of the builds use much shorter stems. I'd guess the majority are less than 90mm. With this style of bike, the stem becomes more of a bike handling component than a fit component. Myself, I'm 6'3" on a large and I started with a 70mm stem but quickly reduced that to 50mm to dial in the handling I wanted.

    I lived and worked in the NYC - Westchester orbit for a few years (man, I miss Curry Hill), but that was during a MTB hiatus for me. I'd love to explore some of the trails back there again sometime. Good luck!

    Thanks for the tips. The stem that is on there is something that I happened to have kicking around it's a 115mm road stem. I do actually have a 90 mm stem that I will go ahead and put on there. I noticed from all the pics almost everyone has the steerer cut very low but I guess with my roadie background I'm being careful to "measure twice, cut once"

    It's interesting to me that at 6'3" your on a large. This xl seems tiny to me but I think a lot of that is from not being able to get the seat back far enough.

    I have short legs: 32" -33" inseams, and the reach is about right for me. Plus mine is built with a 140mm fork, and with such a short rear center, I wouldn't want the front center any longer. Granted, when I bought it, I didn't understand all that- I just looked at the ETT.

    Ever had one of the those bikes that you just have to yell and scream with joy when you rode it?

    I broke my 650B bike so I decided to put the wheels on my Yelli for awhile. Ive run it like this before for a couple rides and liked it alot but wanted to do a longer term trial to see if I might wanna go 650B on it permanently. My only concern is that the bottom bracket might be too low. It was fine when my fork was at 140mm but its 120mm now. Headed out in a bit for a snow ride

    Almost done - just replaced brake pads, and replaced a broken spoke today. Have a pair of Ardents on the way. I also have a 50mm Straitline stem in blue that I might run. Need to get it on the trails first.
