    Ha. I was being lazy. I'll try to get a few more.

    I have the 26" Cobalts on my Ibis Mojo too. They held up very well, but I did have the freewheel hub replaced (older design). Very simple to replace and afterwards didn't have any issues. I also never had to true them and they hold air for my tubeless tires great. The customer service at CB is exceptional.

    I've had the 29" Cobalts for about 2 months. One race and about 400 miles. So far so good. Did have to re-oil the prawls, but afterwards they are good. What I like about them is they are light, hold tubeless tires very well, customer service is great, and they look cool.

    Just a heads up to anyone who has or is getting
    a set of Cobalts. I have 3 sets of these wheels and
    they have been bomb-proof, and have held up great.
    However 2 of the three sets didn't have any lube as
    in dry around the pawls. So make sure they are
    lubed.

    Best, John

    Do you have any problems with the brake levers touching the top tube? I'm building up my Large and it's driving me nuts! I'm thinking about buying a low rise bar so I don't have to run so many spacers. Looks silly the way it's set up now

    Me Too, but I have white brake masters so I think I would have to much white. I keep looking for a pic of a bike with white bits on white bar.

    I plan to switch to polished aluminum brake set so I will likely go ahead with white bars.

    You Lefty riders, did you use the XL or regular sized Lefty? I measured my headset and it looks like it would need the XL.

    Mine is the regular size Lefty. It depends on the stack height of your headtube with headset installed. If you are stack height is less than 138mm you can use the regular. The only headset I found that would work for fitting the regular Lefty to the large BT is the Crank Bros Directset. It came in at 137mm installed.

    If you have to use the XL lefty you could end up with a large stack of spacers. In some cases that could raise the stem to an uncomfortable level.

    What size is your frame?

    These bikes are so amazing I thought I would bump a few threads and ask a question. The other day we rode some trails up in the Mount Charleston area(Las Vegas) and when we got to this trail called oh **** I had to stop about midway down as I had a bit of trouble getting behind the seat. So, has anyone considered putting a Gravity Dropper seatpost on the BT? Im seriously considering it.

    "Im just going to explore a little bit..."

    Dont make me be the bad guy...

    Do I need a pass to ride this trail?

    My frame is a L. I measured and I'm at 146mm right now with the Cane Creek setup I have. Not sure I'm going to do the Lefty thing but considering it. I have about 15mm of spacers with my stem in the +6 degree position so simply flipping the stem should keep in the same range of handlebar rise if I go the XL route with about 20mm of spacers.

    I've done some upgrades so I'll post pics of them up for you

    Saddle
    was: Specialized Phenom Expert
    now: Fizik Gobi XM Carbon rail

    Seatpost
    was: ControlTech Team Issue 1a
    now: Thomson Masterpiece with Ti bolts

    Stem
    was: Syntace Superforce 75mm
    now: Ritchey WCS 4Axis with Ti bolts.

    Grips
    was: ODI Yeti lock ons
    now: Cannondale super light foam lock ons. 48gr! Light for lock ons

    Picked up a right side Formula MixMaster SRAM shifter/brake clamp, in black, and also a left side black RX lever clamp. Never understood why they put silver clamps on black master cylinders

    Also, I swapped out the stock X9 derailleur jockey wheels with some ebay ceramic bearing jockey wheels.

    Enjoy!












    I have an XO crankset on the way, complete with ceramic BB. I ordered a spiderless HomebrewedComponents chainring to go along with it but that thing won't be ready for a month or two Total crankset weight should drop about half a pound! The new setup, with BB, will be around 600gr! I'll be using an MRP direct mount 1X chainguide. I bent the Widgit It's not as strong as I had hoped so I'm going to go with a bashguardless setup and simply watch out for stuff rather than barreling over stuff like before.

    Near the end of September I will be picking up a Lefty MAX Carbon

    Over the winter holidays, I'd like to get a set of Formula R1s but it's hard to fault the RX setup I have now. They've been awesome!

    Once all is said and done, I'm hoping she weighs in around 23lbs She's hovering right at 25lbs as she sits with like 40 feet of copter tape installed

    Looks Good!

    What kinda difference will the ceramic bearing jockey wheels make over the stock?

    Wheres all this copter tape? I put a few strips on mine, but the lines are fairly noticeable.

    Copter tape is on the bottom of the downtube, under the top tube, left side of the headtube, completely around the seatstays and chainstays, on the bottom bracket area and down the back of the seat tube. Basically, anywhere cables can rub or rocks can bounce off of The seams are definitely noticeable up close but from 10 feet or more you can't really see it unless you know it's there.

    As for the jockey wheels, I don't expect any difference. I haven't ridden it yet but I'm not counting on anything. I put a bid in and won them cheap and they lightened up the derailleur a bit, so whatever. I like the idea of lightening rotating mass wherever reasonable/possible in the drivetrain. Also, ceramic bearings are supposed to last longer so should require less maintenance

    I may go ahead and do the back of my seat tube, I never thought of that. I had a hell of a time getting it to form on the chainstays so I gave up on that.

    I really like the cleanliness of your bars, Too bad I need all the gears I can get

    FYI if anyone building is needing a seatpost or stem I have both, a Thomson Masterpiece and a FSA os99 CSI stem, bike fit guy says to get me "just right" I need shorter stem and setback post.

    I just got a BT and on my first ride I already ripped of the metal guard on the chainstay. what size tape did you use on your bike? I'm not sure if I should get 1" or 2" or both.

    I am deciding between this bike as a lefty and a Spesh SJ carbon Expert... But I am leaning towards the clown bike because I was thinking of doing this bike differently (e.g. lefty).

    Please feel free to move this post to another section, I was just responding to the question asked.

    We have a sign shop and get the 3M rolls in 30". 3M is the best stuff, we use it for car / truck bra's. 3M makes 2 thicknesses, the thinner one is best if you have to make some tight contours. Use the wet method to put on the material and keep your hands wet when touching the adhesive side of the material or you will leave finger prints that will be visible. As for the "Magic Juice" all you have to do is get a squirt bottle and make up 1/4 of regular rubbing alcohol and 3/4 of distilled water or RO water. KEEP EVERYTHING WET, film and frame. We do this on car wraps we install.

    I like to cut long strips and wrap with a little overlap on the backside of the tubes. I have done about 4 complete bikes frame / fork and at first was about 2.5 hours but now about 45 min if I take my time. Let me know if I can help.


    Good Luck

    the frame is very stiff, some initial creaking that is easy to correct, my gearing is a bit tall but I'll toughen up. The fork was a good choice, remains stiff when you want and responds when you hit something. I'm surprised at how comfortable the rear is when your sitting through the rough stuff.

    Just got a 2011 medium Big Top; this will be my 4th Yeti. It is also my 1st hardtail since 1998! I decided not to wait for the 2012 after finding out that there are no major changes; just an all black paint job (which I don't like) and the headtube gets changed to accept zero stack
    headsets.

    Rest of the parts arrive in a couple days; should have final build pics up next week. As with all Yeti frames they always weigh a bit more than stated by Yeti.

    Geez, looking at all of these nice Big Tops got me thinking of how bad I want one of my own!

    Back in July, I wanted to do the Leadville 50, but couldn't get enough time off to drive there (from Tucson), and didn't want to pay the $$$ to ship my C-Dale carbon 26'er. I had hardly even heard of Yeti. But when I called Avalanche Sports in Breck, to see what they had to rent, they told me all about the Big Top, and that they had a brand new unridden L-size demo waiting for me, $50/day. I had never even ridden a 29'er! The "build" was the entry level stock $2400 version....

    So I flew into Denver on a Friday morning, picked up the Big Top, and rode 20 miles on the course. Then on Saturday AM I rode the LT50, and Sunday AM I rode 40 miles of the LT100 course. Flew home Monday AM. I only saw one other Big Top that day, and I said hello to the rider, but he was a little hypoxic and staring straight ahead. Since then I don't love my C-Dale 26'er anymore, and I drool over the pics in threads like this one. What should I do ??

    Just a few pics since this is a Big Top photo thread:

    Once you get the Big Top, post some pics so that I will have an excuse/justification to pick up one myself; my C'dale probably won't like it either

    50$/day rental for a Big Top????
    I spent $5800 for mine and I ride at least 300 days a year. 50x300=15000$$$$$
    looks like I'm getting paid to ride to the tune of ~10k a year!!! that puts me in the black...fiscally.
    What to do.....What to do.....buy another Yeti or take the wife on a vacation?

    The Straight line was easy to set up and I don't have to worry about keeping it lubed. I am going for a ride this afternoon to see how the hub upgrade works.

    will not let me upload, I'll try again later.

    Bid you go with the 36 pawl upgrade? It's pretty simple to do and I found it does make a difference in engagement.

    Here's my build, not sure why it took me so long to post this.
    1x10 SRAM X7 with MRP chainguide
    Fox F29 with kashima coating
    ZTR Crest wheels with 12x142mm rear axle
    Kenda Slant Six tires tubeless

    I absolutely love this bike. After breaking 3 Niner AIR 9's I went with the beefier Big Top frame. Super solid. More relaxed geometry than the Niner actually felt more comfortable. The 1.5" headtube with the 15mm axle is great, you can really tell the difference.

    12x142 rear? I didn't know they made those drop outs for the BT. Mine came with 10x135 and SS.

    Yeti makes a chipset to run either axle in the rear.

    Speaking of the dropouts, I had a hard time finding them. I think I called every Yeti dealer in California one night in panic. Big Swinging Cycles in San Fran had the hookup, they know what's up.

    I got mine from Jenson USA in the spring. The rear chip for the ASR5 is the same as the Big Top, but they weren't advertising that back then.

    The Big Top comes stock with 10x135mm dropouts which are compatible with standard QR. In order to run the 12x142mm axle you have to spend $40 for the chips and like $50 for the axle. I just looked now that you mentioned it, the ASR 5 comes with 12x142mm stock. That is no joke! When I first got my BT I thought it came with a 12x142 stock so I had my local shop build me a ZTR Flow on a Chris King 12x142mm. I took it home and tried to put it on my bike and then I made a face like this: A few minutes later I realized the issue and soon discovered that Big Swinging Cycles was the only place I could find that had the setup in stock. Yes, it was dumb but now people with the same issue can learn from my experience.

    I had to send 4 e-mails to Yeti to clarify this back then. Jenson told me the ASR 5 chip wouldn't work, and Yeti said it would work. Then it took me months to find a 12x142mm axle. I'm really happy with the setup though

    That's awesome! I had a few shops tell me that I could not run a standard QR rear wheel on the BT with the stock 10x135 setup. I feel better knowing that I am not the only knuckle head out there...Really we are not knuckle heads, everything cutting edge in mountain biking is a proprietary design that only a select number of people are experts on and most don't even know exists. That being said, the 12x142mm setup is awesome.

    Well after a year mine has evolved some.

    Dropped the lefty, lefty was a nice fork, lockout was a great feature but the lefty and I just never clicked. There are a few reasons but Ill refrain from getting into those reasons in this thread.

    I Dropped FSA stem, waaaay to much flex

    Picked up new cranks and a set of race goldís with ss hub. I am waiting for a new HBC ring for the cranks, till then I am running just the stock middle ring.

    Brakes, the XX I had were basically junk when compared to the xtrs.

    Still very happy and love the bike, no creaks, no moans, bike has held up very well.









    And the before

    Big Top SS build questions

    Building a Big Top SS. Have accumulated all the parts except the crankset and wheelset. Question: Is there a reason to go with a SS specific rear hub? Seems like it might be wiser to just use a regular hub and spacers in case I ever get to missing gears.... but if there is a good reason to use a ss specific hub then I will.... I just don't know what that reason is if there is one. Help!

    Also, thought on crankset? I'm leaning towards the White Industries but want to explore all of my options before I pull the trigger on it.

    Will post pics as soon as I get her done.

    I've got Hive cranks on mine in 180 length, very solid and they don't need much fiddling with. I went with the SS hub, I wanted a dishless rear wheel for it's added stiffness. The big top is a solid bike and makes a perfect SS, the dedicated SS rear wheel only adds to the stiffness of the overall package. I wouldn't want to put gears on it as it works so well as is with only 1. BTW, go with home brew ti if you can afford them, at the moment I've got over 15k km's on these gears and they have yet to begin showing any wear.

    Thanks for your input. So I guess the SS specific hub is supposedly stiffer than a single cog on a regular hub? Are your home brew gears aluminum or titanium?

    So far I've got the frame, a 2011 large I bought second hand. IMHO a yeti should have turquoise paint somewhere. A 2012 SID world cup xx fork, Thompson post and stem, Chris king headset and bb, Easton 70 carbon bar, Hayes stroker trail brakes, oury grips. Going to go with Stan's crest wheel set once I decide on hubs. And then on to the crank dilemma...

    the cogs I'm using are ti. regarding the stiffness of the rear wheel, it depends on how strong you are. if your a lightweight or you've trouble with putting down some serious watts then the regular hub should be fine. don't forget the SS will turn you into a monster and teaches you how to suffer/ smile at the same time. so why not get the dishless wheel right from the start? Besides, an SS hub looks killer on there.

    I..., I am sorry to waste space on the internet, but after all this saving and scrimping convincing the old lady that a $3K bicycle is a totally normal thing, Yeti changed the color!? I called every lbs in the state, and no one online seems to have a 2011 in large. Bummer dude. still going to a friggin awesome bike, but still.

    -Edit. I just had an epiphany while looking at the Crank Bros. website. I can build a bike with a black and gold color scheme. All is well.

    -Edit 2. placed order for a large race at an LBS, now the wait.

    Yes, it's stronger and easier to keep true. Dont go weight weenie and get noodle-y rims though if you actually ride your bike.

    WI cranks are awesome. Stupid easy to maintain, and square taper bottom brackets are cheap and plentiful.

    Went with the White Industries cranks and Arch EX rims with CK (SS) hubs. Really blew up the budget on this one haha. Hopefully I will have it all together in a couple of weeks and will post pics. Still waiting on my "local" Yeti dealer to get my SS dropouts in... and then I just have to figure out how to get this piece of $%* broken crank bros headset out of my frame.

    F**KING hell yes dudes, i got my bike and it rules. And even cooler, it has a 2013 Float fork that came in black, which make the white wellgo mg-1's i ordered look silly, but man it all looks so good. I need some gold pedals to match that kashima. I so wanted a black fork.
    but who cares about all that frippery, it goes like distilled awesomeness.
    for perspective, my ancient steed that still wheezes along is a 1993 Cannondale 3.0 with a Pro-Flex fork, it begs me to kill it when i ride. Now it can finally relax.

    Big Top In Alaska

    Big Top build. Large- 26 and some lbs ish

    Wheels: ZTR Flows set up tubeless
    Handlebar: Carbon fiber something or other
    Stem: Ritchey 4-Axis 80mm
    Tires: Racing Ralph (Tubeless)
    Seatpost: Ritchey
    Crankset: XT
    Seat: WTB Devo
    Shifters: XT
    Rear: XT
    Front:XT
    Brakes: XT
    Pedals: Time Atac

    I've wanted a 29r for a while, and waited until I could afford to do it right. Aside from the creaking that I finally got to go away (I hope), this bike is awesome for everything. I'm 220lbs and 6'2''. I have a hard time finding bikes that are super stiff laterally, and can stand up to an abusive relationship. It's all I've ridden this year so far, and just barely miss my fs bike (very sad for me to say, although there are a few rides I save for the fs bike specifically.) Picture is from Denali National Park this past weekend. Flew into Kantishna and rode 110 miles out on Denali Park Road. Mckinley was visible and saw bears, sheep, moose, etc. Highly recommend the trip. Done on a 29r hardtail this nice was a blast. Cheers.

    Rocket Ron and Racing Ralph 2.25. This winter I will a more aggressive 2.35 or 2.4.

    Initial thoughts:

    Handeling is quicker as expected
    Bike feels light (also expected)
    The fork is compliant and take the edge off rocky and rooted terrain

    The only thing bad about the fork has more to do with my personal ability. When out with friends riding for fun the bike is awesome set up rigid. However at race pace I have become reliant on my squish to offset my fatigue. When I start start seeing red at race pace it gets harder and harder to hold clean lines and I find myself getting beat up. Big wheels and 100mm of travel has a pretty good way of compensating.

    That is my deficiency though, as some of the faster guys in my region ride full rigid.

    I will follow up with long term durability in the future.

    Just arrived today- Last of the XLs on clearance at Huck-n-Roll. Standard Race build, which is nice, as the cockpit matches that of my SB-95 exactly. Converted the wheels to tubeless, converted shifter to I-spec, and put on the XTR pedals. Will get the steerer cut in the next day or so. 26.1 lbs with pedals and cages.
