    Anyone move from Yeti ASR5 to a Carbine SL?

    Hi current Yeti ASR5 owner here. The alloy front triangle/rear carbon version. Thinking of buying one of the Carbine SL frames because of the current great price.

    Has anyone moved to a Carbine SL from a Yeti ASR5, alloy or carbon version? If so what are your thoughts? I am not sure if this would be considered a horizontal move or a vertical move(upgrade).

    By the way I do like my Yeti a lot. $1499 on the Carbine Sl just seems like a great opportunity to go full carbon.
    thanks

    I have no regrets. It's the best deal out if you're not worried about bigger wheels

    They're all sold out of mediums, I reckon large would be too big for me.

    Same as you mate, short legs though.

    Managed to source a medium, but now you have me a bit concerned.

    My GT Force Carbon Medium with 23" TT felt a bit short, My Trek Fuel EX 18.5" at 24" felt too long.

    How much seatpost have you got showing as I'd probably buy a dropper for it.

    Have you got long legs, mine are 30"
    You've got loads of seatpost showing.

    What's the distance between the centre of your BB to the seat rail?

    I think the angle of the pic and your front tyre on a box distort the height of the post.

    What's the standover height like, does it interfere with your bawbag? (assuming your not a femme???)
