    Man, I really like those bikes. If I had the pennies, that's probably what I'd get.
    A trail that’s too difficult wouldn’t exist because it’d never be used. But, trails can exist that’re too difficult for you.

    Most of the parts are directly from the part kit listed on their site, but no it wasn't bought complete.

    That looks way awesome!

    Funny thing I noticed, I think your bike might be sitting on the couch in this ad.

    Nice looking ride. Should be fun to climb up Towers. The run down Mill Creek will be good.

    Um... why does the new 303 resemble the old ASX?

    Edit: Sally - is this a single pivot bike? How's the brake/pedal feedback to the squishiness?

    Yes it is a single pivot, and I haven't ridden it yet. Picked it up right before a 3 pm - 12 am shift at work. I'll get back to you.

    Not really a Single Pivot...

    ...i mean, yeah they have 1 main pivot, but the (oh what do they call that) slider rail makes the wheel base longer as it hits square edges> Same purpose as the 303> World Cup DH racing machine!

    I'm no suspension geek, but it would appear that it is a single pivot that uses the sliding link to tune the progression of the travel while lending lateral stiffness to the rear end. In other words, an ASX on steroids - I'm sure that someone will chime in shortly to tell me I'm an e-simian if I'm wrong.

    Nice bike, you'll have to report back once you have time on it.
    Now with more vitriol!

    Call me a 'tard, but how do you extend a fixed radius to, "make the wheel base longer?"
    I thought the wheelbase can only change w/ >1 pivots => accordion effect.

    The shock mount is eccentric. Rotating the mount changes the position of the shock relative to the rear triangle which alters the HA.

    As for braking feedback - doesn't the position of the caliper relative to the wheel path affect this substantially? I rode an ASR-7 at their demo the other day and the braking didn't seem to substantially affect the suspension.

    Dude, can't wait to see/hear about the ride! She's perddy! Just be careful on the first run! I took the Disco out for her 1st spin, shuttling w/ IE and spaced I had new brakes. Things got REALLY interesting in the tight and steep turns (reads no or not enough brakes)!

    I took a look on Yeti's site. I'm familiar w/ the eccentric mounts. It's very similar to that used in the Disco shock mounts. I have also ridden a single pivot w/ a "linkaged" shock mount...the Tomac 204. The linkage can make the travel feel bottomless (large progression ramp at the end of stroke) and reduce the need for sophisticated shocks. But no wheelbase change.
    Sally, I hope your Yeti feels as good as the Tomac in that respect. From all reports, the Tomac had a significant bit of brake squat. Hope Yeti designed that out...
    FYI, mine has a floater and I can't feel any brake feedback. But there is a good bit of pedal feedback.
    We need to get a hold of IE for a shuttle session

    A high (or high-fwd) single pivot's wheelbase does lengthen until the rear axle is even with the center of rotation (pivot).

    It seems like most single pivots are going to a placement just above the bb, or high-forward like the Bullit. The high-fwd is more rearward travel, so it'll have lots of pedal feedback and brake force interaction.

    Its not that big of an issue, execution of the design makes a much bigger difference than whether its a sp or multi-link. I have one of each right now.

    Black ones are really the one frames you can get a hold of right now..neither of them are numbered I don't think. Luckily Road 34 was on the waiting list for a team colored one since last fall and they let me take it and replace it with a black one.
