    Hello everybody!

    This is my first post on this forum, although I've been a frequent visitor for a couple of years. I'd like to thank all the knowledgeable members of the forum for tons of helpful information!

    This very thread helped me finally pull the trigger on a Yelli, and for that I am, again, very thankful. I finished building it last weekend, and I am completely blown away by how it performs! This is the most fun bike I've had in 20+ years of mountain biking! Here are a couple of pictures form Saturday's maiden voyage:

    Nice color scheme. What size stem and bars? Is that a large frame?

    The frame is a size large. 40mm stem, and 785mm handlebar by NC17. The chain stay protection is a fairly cheap Scott thingy, but it seems to do the job. You can see it a little better here:

    I thought the name was kind of stupid until I got one of my own. Makes perfect sense now: I'm hootin' and hollerin' 3x as often while riding this thing than on my old bike.

    Some of my local dirt over Oakland, CA.

    I too thought the name was a bit odd... Last weekend I got to take mine for some proper riding (not the normal xc yawn) and sweet jebus I discovered a whole new animal, it's so fast and agile I was screaming and hollering like never before, such a great frame!!!

    Hi All,

    8 month lurker while trying to spec out my first attempt at throwing a bike together. Lots of fantastic info and insight and guidance found within this forum. I was originally looking to buy a 2013 ano black but my procrastination got me. When I was finally ready to buy there were no more and I had to wait for the latest shipment. Large 2014 grey ano.

    Here is a pic post ride over on the Wasach Crest Trail in Park City. Rocking the new Atomik Carbon wheels and am really loving the extra stiffness of the carbon hoop.

    3rd season and still going strong. I will update over the winter with a dropper post and new rear wheel. Maybe an X-fusion trace with the new unicrown steerer.

    Took my son to Highland Mtn bike park on Veterans day.
    Couple shots of the features on the way to the top.
    We got home and my son started to spec out a Balance so next year he could try some of the harder trails.

    Just wondering what the 5'10"-5'11" guys are buying frame size wise. I've been slowly ordering parts since December, and will be ordering the frame this month. Can't wait to join the club.

    Ok, so I'm 5'10.5" with a 32" inseam. At my size (and probably yours) either a medium or a large frame will work. Which way you go will depend on what you prefer.

    I went with a large. I run a 35mm stem with 730mm bars with an 18mm rise. Before that I was running a 50mm stem with 720mm flat bars. Switching the cockpit for the shorter, taller setup made a huge difference in how I feel on the bike. A 150mm KS Lev dropper post fits perfectly.

    If I went with a medium I would need a 50mm stem and would have to expose more seatpost than I would like. I also really like the handling of the super-short stem. So for me a large is where it's at.

    If you'd prefer a longer stem or wider bars then you might consider a medium. If you have a shorter inseem and want to run a 150mm dropper you'll almost definitely want a medium.

    I should probably point out that I'm running a 120mm fork. The shorter fork and slightly longer wheelbase of the large probably helps with climbing as well but that's entirely anecdotal. I don't feel limited at all when climbing and have been called a mountain goat more than once.

    And because this is a photo thread here's a potato quality photo of me and my Yelli at the top of Wilder Ranch:



    And an artsy shot of the bars and stem:

    And getting her dirty at Russian Ridge:

    Maybe so! I'm moving to Marin next month, though, so I won't be down around here as frequently. I definitely intend on riding Demo on occasion, though, as it's one of my favorite spots.

    Traction for days. I've got the 2.5 DHF in front and the DHRII 2.3 in the rear. They're heavy but I don't mind so much. The DHRII really helps in climbing the looser stuff and they work great as a combo at Demo. My only problem is I really need wider rims but that should be fixed in a month or two when I build a new wheelset!

    Best offset for 120mm fork on a Yelli?

    Hey guys, I'm looking to pick up one of these bad boys in the near future, and I'm wondering if there's any consensus on what the ideal offset is for a fork set to 120mm? I've got my preferences pretty well sorted in the 26 and 27.5 world, but would love to hear some opinions from current Yelli or N9 owners. I've been thinking that I'd look for a fork w/ 51mm offset to keep the steering snappy, and let me experiment with 130 or 140mm later on and still maintain a reasonable trail dimension...However, I may have a line on a cheap Fox 32 / 120 with 44mm offset...not that stoked about the 32 stanchions either but if the price is right I might give it a whirl anyway. Also, has anybody ever calculated the steering trail # for their bike?

    FYI, I will be riding in mixed terrain, but primarily very rocky with a lot of steep up and down transitions and more slow techy maneuvering and ripping through tight single track than big mountain wide open stuff or buff/bermed flow trails.

    I'm 6' even and a bit on the gangly side it seems. Come from an XCish riding background. My Large is built up as so:
    120mm of travel;
    100mm of droppable post;
    720mm bars + 80mm stem (might go 740x70mm, but not likely wider/shorter than that);
    Saddle at full/climbing extension sits ~29.5" from the BB center - 420mm 0* offset Reverb still has about 15mm of shaft before min. insertion line is exposed.

    This bike rips. Most stable descending bike I've owned. I haven't yet found its limits.
    Coming from a more XC type of riding, and with longish legs + a desire for a modestly efficient climbing position, I thus far have found benefit in keeping a relatively longer stem on it. I'm certain that I can go wider & shorter with the bar/stem combo, but I don't feel compelled to change it much - perhaps by 10mm in both directions.
    For you at almost my height, I'd think that a Large in similar kit would fit you well by lowering the post another 1.5" into the frame, and by shortening the stem to ~50 or 60mm - where most seem to prefer their Yellis. I suspect that with a Med, you'd need a stem at least as long as mine.

    YMMV.

    Looks great. Have always liked the look of that fork for some reason. Any idea what the fork offset is? Curious to get your impression of it all after a few rides. My fork is just 120mm of travel and has a 'normal' 46mm offset. I'm pretty used it now, but it does require more rider input than I'm used to... inputting(?). Coming from a steeper 'twitchy' XC bike I guess that should be expected. Have been curious about 130mm with a 51mm offset though.

    As for the rear wheel, I'd say keep beating your current wheel up while saving for a dropper post. 2 years ago I'd have never said that, but riding a bike like this just begs for a lowered saddle often; I'm now one of those guys that says 'I can't imagine not having one now.' It's really that good.

    I just purchased a blue ano and I'm going to attempt to build it myself. I installed bb chainguide and crankset. I've got a 32t wolf tooth with Mrp amg with an icsg adapter. I have plenty of clearance but after reading about other clearance issues I wonder if I've done something wrong or will have chainline issues.

    Spy, I have a Reverb 125. I wouldn't say there is a lot of wobble in it. At the top of the post's extended length there is none. Fully dropped there is about a 1/4" of wobble at the saddle tip, but I am not on the saddle at that point so I don't feel it. Around 2" of drop, on and off the saddle peddling, I don't feel wobble either. I think if you go Reverb, Lev or Thomson you'll be happy. If you get a Reverb get a right hand remote to be able to mount it under your bars on the left hand side if you run a 1x drive.train

    B+ Yelli

    I had a little fun and did the B+ rims and tires on the bike. Pretty awesome.

    Interesting...I hadn't heard of the B+. I'm very surprised that a 2.8" tire fits. I've had slight rubs with only a 2.35" Schwalbe.

    looks beautiful.
    What's your frame year? I've a 2011 and doesn't seem to have clearance for a true 2.8 tire.

    I picked it up last year from Canfield, so I will call it a 2014. Since the B+ tires are not quite as tall as a true 29er, it puts the widest part of the tire where the chainstay drop outs are the widest. It is a true 2.8 inch tire per my caliper measurements and others. Its huge!

    Actually in my frame the widest part of the chainstay is where the 29er tire sits (2.4 Ardent in the pics), reducing tire diameter would put it in a narrower part...

    I thought they were wtb but I didn't know they made such wide rims. Hmm wonder if I'm gonna regret not going this route with my recent wheel build. Especially since I'm 260lbs

    ~2 years in and still really enjoying riding this bike. It sees more use than any other bike in the garage.

    I'm contemplating doing the same thing on my soon to be purchased Yelli.

    Can you give us a review of how this setup is working for you? Performance wise? How are these rims? Stiff? Super flexy? How do you have the wheels built? I'm torn between building a set of Scrapers or just buying Ibis 941's.

    Please let us know (since it seems like you're a custom wheel builder?) what this set up has been like.

    Thanks!

    This setup has really transformed the bike. Having the high volume tires makes it very nice when you get into the chunder and really rocky sections of trail. The extra 'coosh' in the back is very welcome, especially with how stiff the Yelli alloy frame is.

    Being able to run 11 psi up front adds additional small bump sensitivity to the fork and really is able to conform with the terrain. I run 13.5-14 psi in the back to keep from feeling my rim on the rocks through the really chunky stuff. You can go with a lower pressure, but if you ride hard into rock gardens, you will touch the rim. Initially I was running 10 in the back and I pinch flatted through 2 layers of the tire. The WTB sealant sealed things up, and the rim was not dinged at all. From there I started adding 1psi each ride to fine tune where the happy balance of comfort and stability was.

    The wheels are extremely stiff due to the width of the rims. with a 45mm internal width, there is a lot of material to keep the rim stiff. They are just over 600 grams, so the are also not light. I honestly don't really notice a huge difference, since I am still faster uphill than on my Process 111 with carbon wheels.

    I have the wheels built 2x with Sapim Race spokes and alloy nipples. Tension on the short side is 120 kg/f. I used my Navy Chris King hubs with fun bolts for that little bit of color on the bike. In my personal opinion, the bike looks as good as it rides. I have guys stop me on the trail and ask about the setup and the big tires.

    Overall I am super jazzed on the build. I don't plan on changing anything for some time.

    One thing to mention is that since the knobs on the tires are fairly small, it has made me have more weight over the front end when cornering. Its a practice that is also benefiting me when I am riding my other bikes on the down hill. Because these tires have so much traction, the bike slows down much faster than my other bikes.


    Many folks have asked if I ever run into problems with the tire rubbing on the chainstay, and the answer is no. Like I said above, the wheels are super stiff due to their width and have not flexed over to touch the chainstay

    I am sure you would be pleased if you went with the 741 rims. The biggest difference is you would be missing about 10mm of rim width. When I went from a 30mm internal width to 45mm internal width with the B+ tires, it made a substantial difference. I can't run this wide setup on my Process 111, but would be able to if it was on 35mm internal width rims. So really, it depends on what you are trying to accomplish.

    PS, go with a 140mm fork. The bike is too much fun being a little more slack to do anything else

    Here are a few pics I took with my nice camera a few weeks ago after I gave the bike a bath.

    Thanks for weighing in.

    This is my first "2nd" bike. And as such, I'm trying to keep the build cost down. Which is one reason why the Scrapers caught my eye. Building them is still gonna come in cheaper than a set of 941's. And I'm also planning on the bonus of the Scrapers being a multiuse wheelset that can run on 29 and 27.5 bikes, given frame clearance of course.

    Everything you said makes sense, and they seem like they'll make my first
    hardtail (after only ever owning full sus bikes) a nice, fun, & more comfy grin machine!

    I've got a 2015 Fox Float 140mm 29" fork for it, so I hear you in the travel and head angle department.

    Regarding the tires, I just read about a new 27.5+ Maxxis proto tire at one of the recent trade shows. So i can't imagine it'll be a whole lot longer before there are more tread options out there.

    Your Yelli looks F'ing sick by the way. The bigger wheels just make it look even more bad ass.

    Thanks again!

    Complete budget oriented rebuild over the winter. Only parts carried over are the frame, FD, tires, and handlebars. I am waiting on a new Henge saddle. Blue ESI Chunky grips will go on once I know I am happy with the cockpit. Dropper post is on the shelf waiting for summer.



    I've ridden it to work a couple times... I can't wait for the trails to dry out.

    I've been teasing my buddies with hints since February that I was building a HT 29er. They likely thought it would be another of the budget builds I like to do as a hobby.

    NOPE. I figured this one would be a keeper, so I built it the way I wanted: starting with a large Wasabi Green 2014 Yelli without a single scratch on it, I grabbed an XX carbon 2x crankset, full X9 group, rock shox Revelation 140, Charger SE pro 29 wheels in white, Oozy Spanks in ano green to match the frame. The Spank bar in green isn't anodized so it's slightly off on the cooler but it's gorgeous.
    XT brakes, Hans Dampf trailstars, a white Charge saddle and all white control cables/hoses set it off really well. My trusty Supernatural 5" dropper is the only carried over part.
    It gives me an eyeballgasm just looking at it.

    P.s. 2009 stumpjumper pro (26")

    Here's my new to me Yelli. I pm'd some of you trying to decide if a large was big enough. I threw caution to the wind and bought it anyway. First ride was good but I need a taller seatpost. I guess if I decide it's too small I'll sell and try to track down an xl. At least I have a bike to ride right now.

    Changes from last year.
    140mm RCT3 Pike. Chris King BB. Shimano rotors. Chromag Trailmaster DT saddle. Frequency i25 laced to a Hope pro II evo and xt cassette.
    Tires are specialized butcher grid 2.3" in the rear, Michelin Rock'r 2 advanced 2 Gum-X 2.35" in the front. 30psi rear, 25psi front.
    I hope to switch out the rear tire for the summer and give the Slaughter a try. If I can't get my hands on a slaughter, I'll prob just run the butcher until it wears out in the middle, and pretend its the same thing.

    The latest image of mine. Most recent addition is the new wheelset - Derby HD rims and Hope Pro II Evo hubs. Laced them up myself.

    Anyone running a 150mm fork on their Yelli? I have a 140 on there right now, but am curious since I just picked up a 150 Fox 36 for another build.

    New Setup @150mm

    Hey Guys,

    I didn't hear back from anyone that was enjoying a 150mm fork on their Yelli, so I figured I would try it myself. Since the A2C of the 150mm Fox 36 is only a few mm's taller than the 140mm Pike, there was not a huge difference. I did have to adjust my seat about a half rotation of the seatpost bolts. Even that few extra mm's taller A2C is noticeable on the trail.

    Since I am running B+ wheels and tires on the bike, I can adjust the low speed compression of the fork way up so stays higher in the travel. The extra squish of the big tires mutes all the smaller trail chatter than the low speed compression specializes in. On the flip size, I have adjusted the high speed compression way down so I am not dealing with as much ramp up on the end of the stroke. Its set up pretty much the exact opposite of what I ride with the normal 2.3 in tires.

    Overall, I am jazzed on the set up. The more I ride it, the funner it gets. Here are some glam shots I took yesterday after I had given it a proper clean.

    The old lady got some updates for her 4th birthday (she got the gifts a little early. her bday is in the fall).

    Changed out my old sram 10 speed stuff for 11 speed - xtr shifter, 11-40 cassette and RD.




    The rest is: xt cranks w/race face 30t, xt brakes, king hubs, light-bikes rims, syntace flexy post, spech tires and saddle, race face next bars, pro stem, white bros fork at 120.

    How's the 11-40 cassette working out? I'm about to finish my build this weekend with the same setup. I was debating OneUp or buying an XT 11-42.

    I rode mine 11-40 for a whole season and really enjoyed it. Looking back, I would have gone the 11-42 route with the OneUp.

    And now there's 11-45! They're claiming that you can upsize the chainring.

    with slx double and absolute black oval 32t. No rubbing but distance at the largest diameter is just a few mm from the CS yoke.

    Not sure how it will work out on drops when the CS flexes

    My Wasabi Green Paint had lost it's luster after years of hard riding and some racing in the thick mud. So I decided to give her a new look.

    I'd like to go with something more original, but I've been supplied with red and black parts by my cousin who is inheriting the bike from me. It's what we had on hand. I may throw in a couple blue things for a Captain America vibe.

    Speaking of which, has anyone ever run a turbine crank (older non cinch model) with a 30t NW chainring? Wondering how many driveside spacers I need to run so I can clear the chainstay yoke?

    I went all hoity toity with a custom steel hardtail. I basically went with the Yelli's geo with a longer reach, shorter chainstays, steeper seat tube, and a lower BB. Plus I got stealth dropper routing, a 142x12 axle, trick internal cable routing, and clearance for a 2.5" tire.

    Very much inspired by the Yelli/Nimble but a better fit for my orangutan-like proportions. Canfield seems to have since made a lot of similar changes to the Yelli/EPO.

    If anyone is in the market HIGHLY recommend this guy. It's more affordable than you might think too. Meriwether Cycles | Russell?s 29er

    Had to keep the Yelli in the family b/c of the emotional attachment built up after almost 4 years of good times! She will live on!

    Yeah will do, I kind of cheated with the first photo, have not achieved that kind of shine with the rest of the frame yet! Should be all finished tonight though. Wish I had air tools. Hand polishing wears me out!

    I'm just going to leave it alone, no plans to clear. I did the same thing to my cannondale chase a few years back and the high polish maintains itself pretty well. I just give it a light buff every 4-6mo (like 5-10min worth) and it goes right back to shiny. Just like maintaining mag wheels. I've found if you clear over raw corrosion can get underneath the clear and then you have to strip and start over.

    Any of you guys with the 2015 Yelli's have any pics with LARGE volume tires and how much clearance you have? I know you can run 27.5+ but I'm wondering specifically clearance with a true, big volume, 29".

    I end up running large volume tires like 2.4 Ardent, 2.4 Conti Trail King on WTB i25 rims. I'd like to run a 2.5 Minion if it will fit (or something larger)?

    Thanks!

    I think I read somewhere that they designed it to fit the 2.5 Minion DHF specifically. In any case they'll fit, that's what they're running on their demo build.
