    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.

    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 ride. Just swapped the spring on my fork last night. Snapped a pic. The Thomson seat post matches the frame perfectly to boot.

    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...

    Couple pics from the shakedown ride...





    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.

    Yup ...and red is faster and climbs better too.

    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?
