    I've finally finished up the ol' Yelli!



    -Went 1x10 with a 32t standard Canfield ring.
    -Went from 100mm - 120mm on the Reba (+lower service).
    -Switched out the red RD cable to black.
    -Went from 5mm QR - 9mm RWS in front.
    -Re-dished and trued the front wheel.
    -Red ano bar plugs from a friend!

    what did you use for relocating the bottle cage?

    A piece of aluminum flat bar, I think it was 1/2". It's kinda ghetto, but it works.

    Sweet!
    I still need a matching Hope/Arc30 rear wheel and a dropper, but I absolutely LOVE my Yelli!
    So much damn fun!

    YS owners, if you are to race XC, will you retain the 140 fork or use a 100 instead?

    Anyone ever ran theirs with 100?

    (By XC, yes I mean those who wear tight lycra during an moutain race)

    Mine was 100 before I took the spacer out of the Reba. It's so much better at 120, I wouldn't recommend 100.

    I personally liked mine with 100 found steep/long climbs more manageable. It still rips DH as well

    I would not want a 100mm fork on this bike, unless you are only riding groomed trails. It has a lot of BB drop, and between typical crank length and fork sag, you'd have barely 4" of crank/pedal clearance. I suppose that could make it ideal for handling on your trails, or totally unusable, but there's no way for me to know.

    My own personal roller coaster(bit low for my trails w/120mm, but handles beautifully):

    Not a matter of can you run 100, but 100 is probably below the sweet spot for most riding. I ran a Surly krampus fork on mine for awhile which is around the a-c height of a sagged 100mm fork and it still handled great, although I prefer my rev 140 on it. If you're looking at racing it I know there are SID 120's, that would make a sweet ride.

    Wolftooth's B-RAD 3 works well relocating the cage for those generations which can't accomodate bigger bottles. I can fit the large SIS bottle with no problems sliding in/out. A side loader is still needed though.



    Still can't imagine me drinking from a bottle below the TT. Know of any bottles with covers aside from Camelbak Podium?

    Dangit! I thought I came up with an original idea. That B-RAD is rad!

    Maybe you could put some plastic wrap around the lower bottle till you're ready to switch it out with the upper?

    Yea, that's orignal plan, to cover with something 'till swap time.

    This was my pre-b-rad ghetto setup. Just got some scrap aluminum bar, drilled and tapped.

    There are a lot of opinions on the travel for the fork. I found the most helpful to be from this review. This guy has ridden a lot of bikes and has been on a yelli screamy for years. Of course it all depends on your riding style and trails. Check it out.

    Yeah, check out that high dollar bottle on my bike a few posts above yours
    I was putting a Ziploc over my Podium to keep it from getting packed with dirt and mud, but got tired of that crap. Mounting it under the downtube would have been a lot worse!

    Yelli Screamy Photo Thread

    Looking into upgrading my old dual air Revelation to a DVO Diamond. The rev is 140mm, the DVO is 150mm. Anyone running a 150 on the Yelli? I think the axle to crown is pretty close between the 2, but cannot find definitive answer on ac measurement for rev

    Edit. Looks like the 2011 rev in 140 with 20mm axle is 549 and the DVO is 552mm at 150mm. Does that sound accurate to anyone?

    The DVO is 562 at 150mm but it can be internally dropped to 140mm with their spacer. Hope that helps.

    Do all of the YS's have the same head tube angle? I'm looking at buying a 2013 29'er off a local guy but his photos don't look like it has the same rake as some of the ones in this thread. I've also noticed that some of the bikes in this thread appear the same way. Some look like the front tire is close to the frame, others it looks farther out. Maybe it's just the angle of the pic.

    Lastly, I've seen a lot of guys all over the board on sizing. I know fit is a personal choice but, since the bike I'm looking at is an 8 hour round trip drive, I'd like to get the opinion of those with experience with the bike. I'm 5"10 - 5'11 (depending on which Dr. measures me...) and have a 31" inseam. I'm looking at a large but am concerned that I'd need a medium.

    This is the bike I'm looking at: Yelli Screamy Photo Thread-00808_7d9aj0domqu_600x450.jpg

    Im 5'10" w/ 32" inseam on a large. 50mm 0deg stem, 750mm bars, 150mm dropper. The fit feels so nice. The bike feels very natural under me, so comfy. I ride it more often than my FS ('16 Trance) bike.

    On the headtube question. Some guys are running shorter travel forks, adjustable travel forks slammed in the photo they took, or some forks just have shorter axle to crown. The headtube angle is the same across all years the Yelli was produced.

    I'm 6' with 32" inseam on a medium I believe, it's a bit under 17" from BB to top of seat tube. I had another 29'er in medium and both fit me better than my large 26". You're gonna have to go try it it I think.

    Well, crap. I hate to drive a 7-8 hour round trip just to find out it will or won't fit.... Damn.

    Hmmm. I am 5'8" and I had a medium. Every year it felt smaller. Now I'm on a modern geometry bike that is much longer than the Yelli and it feels perfect.

    5'8" 31" inseam using med YS 2014. stem is renthal apex 35 33mm, bar is renthal fatbar lite 35 20mm.

    while this bar/stem works well already, i still prefer having a zero rise bar or a -10mm

    Good catch. I was looking at wrong one. What Angleset should I get. I figure keep the 150mm. Slack out a degree or so and maintain BB height. Thoughts?
